The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders ( DSM ) is published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and offers a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders . It is used, or relied upon, by clinicians, researchers, psychiatric drug regulation agencies, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies , the legal system, and policy makers together with alternatives such as the ICD-10 Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders , produced by the WHO . [1]

The DSM is now in its fifth edition, the DSM-5 , published on May 18, 2013. The DSM evolved from systems for collecting census and psychiatric hospital statistics, and from a United States Army manual. Revisions since its first publication in 1952 have incrementally added to the total number of mental disorders , although also removing those no longer considered to be mental disorders.

The initial impetus for developing a classification of mental disorders in the United States was the need to collect statistical information. The first official attempt was the 1840 census , which used a single category: " idiocy / insanity ". Three years later, the American Statistical Association made an official protest to the U.S. House of Representatives , stating that "the most glaring and remarkable errors are found in the statements respecting nosology , prevalence of insanity, blindness, deafness, and dumbness, among the people of this nation", pointing out that in many towns African-Americans were all marked as insane, and calling the statistics essentially useless.

Individuals with ID often present with behavioral symptoms complicated by limited expressive language skills and undiagnosed medical conditions. Many training programs do not include focused study of individuals with ID, despite the fact that patients with ID will be seen by virtually every mental health practitioner. In this book, the authors present a framework for competent assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in individuals with ID.

Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability is a resource guide for psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and other prescribers treating patients with ID. It is a supplemental text for psychiatry residents, medical students, psychology graduate students, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, behavior support specialists and nurses. To assist the practicing clinician the book includes:

There are no evidence-based principles dedicated to psychotropic medication use in ID, but consensus guidelines address the high prevalence of poly-pharmacy. Altered diagnostic criteria have been published which accommodate less self-report and incorporate collateral information; this book reviews the literature on psychotropic medications, consensus guidelines, and population-specific diagnostic criteria sets.

In psychiatry we like to think along bio-psycho-social dimensions. Our current axial diagnosis is a reflection of this. The reasons for our interest in things beyond ...
