Sexual and Gender Diagnoses of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) by Dan Karasic

Book Description

Get the latest on the controversies of the sexual and gender diagnoses contained in the current DSM The revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) is an ongoing process, and changes in criteria or terminology can have significant implications for diagnosis and treatment. Sexual and Gender Diagnoses of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM): A Reevaluation provides a range of viewpoints from noted authorities on gender and sexuality issues presently included in the DSM. Arguments for or against revisions of various gender and sexual diagnoses are presented-some may have repercussions regarding insurance reimbursement and patient access to care. This book is certain to raise questions for mental health professionals interested in how cultural influences affect psychiatric diagnoses. Sexual and Gender Diagnoses of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) reviews those controversial gender issues previously seen as being a disorder. The book critically evaluates the medical, psychotherapeutic, and civil rights issues in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of GID in children, adolescents, and adults, and presents evidence and debates for its exclusion from the next DSM. Arguments for and against removal of paraphilias from the DSM are explored in detail. Finally, sexual pain criteria for diagnoses are examined, reviewing the latest studies that support or criticize the view that dyspareunia and vaginismus may be better classified as a pain disorder. Sexual and Gender Diagnoses of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) presents controversial debate from experts such as: * Robert Spitzer, MD * Charles Moser, MD, and Peggy J. Kleinplatz, PhD * Walter O. Bockting, PhD, and Randall Ehrbar, PsyD * Kelley Winters, PhD * Arlene Istar Lev, CSW-R, CASAC * Paul Jay Fink, MD * and other respected authorities! Sexual and Gender Diagnoses of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) is thought-provoking, enlightening reading for psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health workers, epidemiologists, researchers, educators, and students.
