About the Author


Praise For…


"Accessible to students and experienced clinicians from all the mental health professions....The tone of the book is conversational, personal, and lively….The reader is 'walked through' the diagnostic process in a way that, especially to the student, would make evaluation seem manageable and masterable." (on the prior edition)
— Clinical Social Work Journal

“This is an enjoyable book full of captivating vignettes that highlight the criteria and diagnoses of DSM-5. In a fun and exciting way, the author reviews every DSM-5 diagnosis and the changes made from previous DSMs, with ICD-9 and ICD-10 code numbers….This is an excellent book for anyone interested in learning how to use DSM-5 to diagnose mental health disorders. The explanations are great, well balanced, and full of humor. It does not read like a textbook and it lives up to its title DSM-5 Made Easy. *****!”
— Doody's Review Service

“This book is an invaluable guide to the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and to psychiatric disorders and their diagnosis. It incorporates a wide range of useful features….There are more than 130 case studies that illustrate the diagnostic process and side notes to highlight particular pieces of information relevant to the disorder and diagnosis. These case studies help to bring the diagnoses to life and explain them in real-world situations….Nursing students and mental health professionals, and anyone with an interest in mental health and wellbeing.”
