For the many psychiatrists, psychologists, and other clinicians and researchers striving to bring symptom relief to patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other psychoses, this volume provides an all-important summary of the latest research about the diagnosis and pathophysiology of psychosis.
Deconstructing Psychosis: Refining the Research Agenda for DSM-V gives the reader an inside look at how psychotic phenomena are represented in the current diagnostic system and how DSM-V might better address the needs of patients with such disorders. This volume presents a selection of papers reporting the proceedings of a conference titled Deconstructing Psychosis convened by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). The conference was designed to be a key element in the multiphase research review process for the fifth revision of DSM. This book is one in a series of ten that reflects some of the most current and critical examinations of psychiatric disorders and psychotic syndromes.
