Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

Redirected from DSM-IV

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, published by the American Psychiatric Association, is the handbook used most often in diagnosing mental disorders in the United States.

This book is currently in its fourth edition; hence, the most common reference to it in current literature is "DSM-IV." The most recent version is the 'Text Revision' of the DSM-IV, also known as the DSM-IV-TR.

Please note: all editions of the DSM are copyrighted by the American Psychiatric Association.
