Handy-dandy reference for the new DSM. The only problem with this Desk Reference is that, although it does have all the codes and symptoms listed for each diagnosis, including the codes that will be used as of sometime in 2014, it does NOT contain either the WHODAS 2.0 (severity scale - available online from the World Health Organization), or the Psychosis Severity Scale (which is not available on-line; it's only in the full-size DSM-5.

This book is already falling apart and I've had it for 1 week.  Pages are coming out.  I have only used it once.  Cheaply made for a book that I will be using thousands of times in the years ahead.
