* DSM-5:
Psychiatry’s Manual of
Disorders and the Issues
Surrounding Its Design and Use
An Introduction to DSM-5,Its
Development, Changes, and
Researched and Developed by Rhinehart Lintonen
The presentation herein is the intellectual property of Rhinehart Lintonen and does not
reflect the attitudes or positions of the American Psychiatric Association. This
presentation was developed for the use of the membership of the Milwaukee Area
Teachers of Psychology and their students. Any other use should request permission at

the present DSM and to document changes from DSM-IV-TR. Critiques and
controversies presented are those of the persons or groups cited.
* A Short History of the DSM
The Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of
Mental Disorders
*Development of the DSMs
* DSM-5, issued on May 18, 2103, is the culmination of
changes begun in 1999 and intended to replace DSM-IV-TR
which was seen as needing revision due to scientific
discoveries in brain biology and issues surrounding
perceived needed changes in the diagnostic categories
* The prior editions stem back to post-World War II when
the Army and Veteran’s Administration were looking for a
way to diagnose what psychiatrically affected returning
• Thus began DSM-I, published in 1952.
* Other revisions include DSM-II (1968), DSM-III (1980), DSMIIIR (1987), DSM IV (1994) and DSM-IV-TR (2000)
*Development of the DSMs
* Along the way, revisions reflected current thinking and
trends in psychiatry
* DSM-1 was largely psychodynamic in nature, reflecting
Freud’s impact on psychiatry
• Disorders referred to as “reactions” under the influence of
Adolf Meyer and also showed the psychoanalytic bent
• Two groups of disorders based on causality
Illustrations: American Psychiatric Assoc.
 Those caused by or associated with brain tissue dysfunction
 Those of “psychogenic” origin not clearly related to structural
changes in the brain
* DSM-II increases number of disorders to 182
• Drops use of “reactions” while still using Freudian
terms such as “neurosis” and “psychosis”
*Development of the DSMs
* DSM-III represented a major change in the construction of the
manual with 265 categories of disorders
• Gone was the prior emphasis on psychodynamic views
• Now the emphasis was on empirically-obtained observations
• Coincided with move in US away from psychoanalysis and with
publics’ skepticism of psychiatry in general
DSM-IIIR influenced by Emil Kraepelin’s insistence on the roles of
biology and genetics in disorders
Task Force Chair Dr. Robert Spitzer suggested there was
a hierarchy of mental illness (Greenberg, 54)
Dr. Allen Frances accords him great respect, saying that
“Without Robert Spitzer, psychiatry might have become
increasingly irrelevant” and that “Spitzer had laid the
foundations for the psychiatric research enterprise.” (Frances, 62-
New York Times
• High praise for the man who guided the DSMs into a new
American Psychiatric Assoc.
*Development of the DSMs
* DSM-IV was not much of a sea-change from DSM-III
• The number of disorders were now over 300
• Allen Frances, MD chaired the task force and insisted
that the manual was not to be taken as a “Bible” of mental
• All changes had to be science-driven and evidence-based and
needed to have checks and balances which would protect
against bias and individual’s pet ideas (Frances, xiii)
• One of his regrets is that “Even though we had been boringly
modest in our goals, obsessively meticulous in our methods,
and rigidly conservative in our product, we failed to predict
or prevent three new false epidemics of mental disorder in
children – autism, attention-deficit, and childhood bipolar
disorder.” (Frances, xiv)
*Development of DSM-5
* DSM-IV-TR (2000) was an update to DSM-IV, not in the
categories of disorders but in two main areas:
• Prevalence
• Familial patterns
* These were updated to reflect new scientific knowledge
regarding genetics and other neuroscientific advances
What you’ve been
teaching from all this
time! Get ready to
change what you
American Psychiatric Assoc.
*Development of DSM-5
* Beginning in 1999, there were specific calls for changes to
DSM-IV-TR including:
•In two decades, much new info on disorders had emerged
•Biological psychiatry and neuroscience were being embraced
with great enthusiasm
 Prominent neuroscientists like Eric Kandel were proclaiming that
“all mental disorders involve disorders of brain function.”
(Greenberg, 61)
 New drugs seemed to ease burden of psychological disorders
o Think serotonin imbalances being eased by SSRI antidepressants
(which later proved to be a false hypothesis)
• Genetics research had added new knowledge of the possible
sources of disturbances
• Need for a more defined nosology (classification system)
• A hoped-for “paradigm shift” to recreate that nosology
*How Was DSM-5 Created?
* New edition preceded by 13 scientific conferences and a
number of white papers, monographs, and journal articles
researching and evaluating new nosologies
under Chairman David Kupfer, MD and Vice-Chairman
Darrel Regier, MD
American Psychiatric Assoc.
* APA set up the DSM-5 Task Force of 27 members in 2007
* 160 researchers and clinicians formed the Work Groups
and Study Groups to develop the new manual, revising or
tweaking criteria from the DSM-IV-TR and deleting or
adding diagnostic classifications
*How Was DSM-5 Created?
* The new task force stated in its goals that
• “The previous version of DSM was completed nearly two
decades ago; since that time, there has been a wealth of new
research and knowledge about mental disorders.” (APA)
* Therefore, the APA set about to use this evidence to
determine whether certain diagnoses (a very hotly debated
term) should be removed or changed
* Additionally, the APA felt that they needed to better define
the disorders by symptoms and behaviors than DSM-IV did
* This would allow for future revision processes to be more
responsive through incremental updates (DSM-5.0, 5.1,
etc.) as new scientific breakthroughs became available
*How Was DSM-5 Created?
* Changes like this are costly
• DSM-5 cost between $20-25 million to produce
* However, the DSM is a cash cow for the APA!
• It is the sole agency producing such a product except for the
• The greatest percentage of the income of the APA comes from
its publishing arm
* Since it brings in so much income, the DSM is critically
important to the APA
* There are calls for a more open, diversified medical
organization to be created to write a new manual with
more inputs and better designed to help the practice of
psychiatry rather than simply refine the nosology (also
* The
New DSM-5
Change is Good
* The old structure is gone
*Basic Changes
• No more Five Axes
 These were seen as incompatible with ICD-10 and other medical
diagnostic systems
o Replaced with a 0 to 4 point severity ratings scale for each diagnosis
• No more assessment of global relative functioning according to a
scale (GARF)
* The term “general medical condition” has been replaced with
“another medical condition”
* Asperger Syndrome is no longer a discrete classification
• Now merged into Autism Spectrum Disorder
* Subtypes for Schizophrenia are gone
• This was done because of low reliability, poor validity, and
because of limited diagnostic stability (APA)
* NOS categories (not otherwise specified) are now “other specified
disorder” and “unspecified disorder”
*Basic Changes
* Structure of the Manual
• Preface
• DSM-5 Classification and Coding
• Section I
 Use of the Manual
 Cautionary Statement for Forensic Use of DSM-5
• Section II
 Disorders listed among 22 major categories
*Basic Changes
* Gone is the category “Disorders Usually First Diagnosed in
Infancy, Childhood, or Adolescence”
• These are now found under other appropriate headings
* Other changes pertinent to each category will be discussed
in the following section “The New DSM-5: Disorders”
For a complete discussion of in-depth changes in each diagnostic
category, go to:
* The
New DSM-5
The Controversies
DSM Under Fire
* The new DSM has been under fire almost from the beginning
• Initial complaints involved failure to supply minutes of
committee meetings and questions about transparency
* As time progressed, the questions and criticisms grew
• Two camps essentially:
 The American Psychological Association with David Kupfer and
Darrel Regier defending their work
 Former DSM-III and DSM-IV task force leaders Robert Spitzer and
Allen Frances
* This brought about what became high drama never before
seen at this level of medical/scientific process
* The availability of the Internet allowed the criticism to
reach unheard of numbers of therapists and professionals
able to comment on the proceedings
The Charges
* The Spitzer/Francis camp charged:
• The manual was being drawn up in secrecy
• Transparency was not being allowed
• The Task Force members had to sign confidentiality agreements
which limited their open discussion about the proceedings
• DSM not etiologically based and adding things which were not
• Continued emphasis on Asperger’s, ADHD, and Childhood
Bipolar Disorder (what Frances called “false epidemics”) would
lead to diagnostic inflation (Francis, 77-86)
• DSM-5 was leading to the “medicalization of normalcy” (Frances
and Widiger, 123)
• Too many psychiatrists on the development committees had
ties to Big Pharma and were thus in danger of being influenced
in their decisions (Frances, 75)
The Charges
* The Spitzer/Francis camp charged:
• Field Trials were improperly vetted and hastily drawn up and
weren’t adequately presented for review
 The trials failed spectacularly in some areas with very low kappa scores
o On a 0 to 1 scale, depression had a low 0.28; Mixed Anxiety-Depressive
Disorder at -0.004 (Freedman,
• The APA was in too much of a hurry to bring the manual to market
• APA’s financial vesting in the book meant that the organization
needed to bring it to market quickly to continue the flow of sales
• Behind it all, Frances charged that there were a number of
conceptual issues:
 “an elusive definition of mental disorder, the limits of neuroscience,
the limits of descriptive psychiatry, an unclear epistemology, the
absence of a unified theoretical model, pragmatism, and fads.”
(Frances and Widiger, 109-110)
The Charges
* Frances admits that “Psychiatric classification is necessarily
a sloppy business.” (Frances and Widiger, 114) and that “the only
way to define a mental disorder is ‘that which clinicians
treat; researchers research; educators teach; and insurance
companies pay for.’” (Frances, 18)
* Frances warns that DSM-IV had some unintended
consequences being heightened by DSM-5 (Frances and Widiger,
• Four fads creating diagnostic inflation
 autism
 attention deficit
 childhood bipolar disorder
 paraphilia not otherwise specified
The Charges
* Additional critiques from Frances and others
• APA was trying to create a paradigm shift in psychiatric
diagnosis which is, at present, unrealizable
• New category of Mood Dysregulation Disorder will create a
mental disorder out of temper tantrums
• Normal grief is being medicalized
• Everyday characteristics of old age will be misdiagnosed as
cognitive disorders
• ADHD will lead to more adults being diagnosed in a fit of
diagnostic inflation
• Excessive eating is now a disorder, not just plain gluttony
• Problems in everyday living will be elevated to General Anxiety
• Behavioral addictions can apply to anything one does often
The Charges
* And the list goes on
• Just exactly what is a mental disorder, anyway?
 Are they simply problems in living as Thomas Szasz claimed?
• Will we stigmatize too many people?
• Will all of this encourage Big Pharma to find a drug for
 Many psychiatric drugs don’t work nearly as well as patient think
* At least a number of proposed “disorders” didn’t make it
• E,g., Hypersexual Disorder
 How much sex is too much?
 Is it possible to be mentally ill because of a desire for sex?
Anything Positive in DSM-5?
* Is it all for naught?
Does DSM-5 or any other manual have
any redeeming value?
* The APA said it “would work to overcome one of the
clearest limitations of our current diagnostic criteria…the
lack of quantitative measures.” (Greenberg, 175)
• Frances counters that we “still do not have a single laboratory
test in psychiatry.” (Frances, 10)
• However, the APA did adhere to attempting to validate all
disorders through empirical evidence from clinical practice and
an exhaustive search of the literature
* So, at the end of the day, even Spitzer and Frances admit
that, while it isn’t a “bible,” the DSM is still the best thing
we have to guide us until something better comes along
Anything Positive in DSM-5?
*DSM-5 has many supporters among clinicians and
*It is considered robust compared to the ICD-10 or any
other attempt to create a different manual
*Perhaps therapists are best reminded that it is just a
guide, it needs to be used judiciously, and the most
apt advice may be that of the British Psychological
Society which admonishes therapists to treat the
person first, not the disease
Other Methodologies
*Other methodologies are in the works
• Creating categories of disorders based on brain
biology and neuroscience
• Diagnosing disorders based on measuring the
psychological dimensions of personality
• Using a system of “stepped diagnosis” (Frances, 222)
 A form of watchful waiting emphasizing normalizing
problems and using minimal interventions until arriving at a
definitive diagnosis and treatment plan
Another Possible System
*The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has
an initiative known as Research Domain Criteria
• The system would assess
 Negative Valence Systems
o Threat, fear of loss, frustration
 Positive Valence Systems
o Motivation, learning, and habit
 Cognitive Systems
o Attention, perception, and Memory
 Social Process Systems
o facial expression identification, imitation, attachment/separation fear
 Arousal/Regulatory Processes
o Stress regulation
• These would be analyzed in terms of genes, molecules, and
cells (Greenburg, 339-342)
