DSM-5 Diagnosi differenziale

Michael B. First

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 352

DSM-5 Diagnosi differenziale. Fare diagnosi richiede la capacità di ottenere informazioni dal paziente, di identificare i sintomi, riconoscere i pattern e determinare le possibili cause. I clinici esperti riconoscono che la diagnosi differenziale è un'arte, non una scienza, e accettano di buon grado gli strumenti che possono aiutarli in questo difficile compito. DSM-5 Diagnosi differenziale aiuta i clinici e gli studenti a imparare il processo della diagnosi psichiatrica e migliorare le loro capacità di formulare una diagnosi differenziale esaustiva, fornendo un'ampia varietà di approcci che comprendono un percorso diagnostico in 6 passi, 29 "alberi decisionali" e 66 tabelle di diagnosi differenziale che possono essere usate per verificare una diagnosi presunta. Il Manuale contiene anche la classificazione del DSM-5 per facilitare il processo di codifica. Questo libro è anche cercato come: Diagnosi differenziale DSM 5, Analisi differenziale DSM 5

DSM-5 Handbook of Differential Diagnosis

Michael B. First

editore: American Psychiatric Publishing

pagine: 325

Diagnosing patients requires the ability to elicit information from the patient, identify symptoms and recognize patterns, determine possible causes, and then make an accurate diagnosis. Experienced mental health clinicians recognize that differential diagnosis is an art, as well as a science, and welcome tools to assist them. The DSM-5[trademark] Handbook of Differential Diagnosis helps clinicians and students learning the process of psychiatric diagnosis improve their skill in formulating a comprehensive differential diagnosis by providing a variety of approaches, including a six-step diagnostic framework, 29 bottom-up "decision trees," and 66 differential diagnosis tables for use once a tentative diagnosis has been made. The handbook includes the DSM-5[trademark] classification to facilitate coding and to provide an overview of all of the DSM-5[trademark] diagnoses that must be considered in formulating a differential diagnosis. DSM-5[trademark] Handbook of Differential Diagnosis offers a solution to differential diagnosis that recognizes the complexity of human personality and the structural utility of the DSM-5[trademark] classification. Clinicians and students learning psychiatric diagnosis faced with this most crucial task will find this handbook of enormous benefit.

Age and Gender Considerations in Psychiatric Diagnosis

A Research Agenda for DSM-V

Darrel A. Regier, Michael B. First
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 362

Written to help identify major gaps in our knowledge of how gender and age affect psychiatric diagnoses and to stimulate much-needed research to fill these gaps, Age and Gender Considerations in Psychiatric Diagnosis serves as both a valuable short-term source for the DSM-V Task Force and its disorder-specific workgroups, and a long-term guide for future studies that will contribute to revised psychiatric classifications in these three areas. Here, 47 experts present findings in three areas of psychiatric research that historically have been neglected but rightfully have received increasing attention in recent years and thus are worthy of investigation into their clinical features, etiology, and course: 1. Significant gender differences in prevalence, symptom profiles, and risk factors for mental disorders, including neurodevelopmental, neurophysiological, and environmental factors for men and women that cut across diagnostic categories-for example, the critical importance of gender in how psychiatric illness develops and presents; DSM's approach to gender to date; and relevant research findings and gaps in the epidemiology, etiology, and pathophysiology of disorders and the gender-related expression of psychopathology, including the controversial and complex question of whether DSM should have different diagnostic criteria for men and women. 2. Mental disorders in infancy and early childhood, including diagnosis and measurement of psychopathology; PTSD and social and cognitive factors related to the experience of stress; reactive attachment disorder (unique in part because of its specificity to early childhood); mood and anxiety disorders and difficulties in diagnosis; sleep disorders, including two new disorders, Night-Waking Dysomnia and Sleep-Onset Dysomnia; feeding disorders, including the need to address overeating and overfeeding (especially given the alleged U.S. epidemic of obesity); early childhood manifestations of behavior disorders; and early symptoms and diagnosis of autism. 3. Mental disorders in the elderly, such as dementia and depression, once considered normal consequences of aging but now understood to represent mental disorders, including the need to identify specific brain structure abnormalities, biomarkers, and the many contributing biological, psychosocial, and environmental factors of mental illness in late life and to understand their roles in the elderly to better diagnose and monitor disease progression. Written for clinicians and researchers alike, this thought-provoking compendium contributes critical information that helps enhance our understanding of the causes of mental disorders, develop effective preventive and treatment interventions, and inform future editions of DSM and ICD.

Handbook of Psychiatric Measures

A. John Rush, Deborah Blacker
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 828

The Handbook of Psychiatric Measures offers a concise summary of key evaluations that clinicians can use in daily practice to enhance the quality of patient care in terms of both diagnosis and assessment of outcomes. Comprising a wide range of methods available for assessing persons with mental health problems, it contains more than 275 rating methods, from the Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale to the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale. In this fully revised edition, more than 40 measures have been added to the discussion and to the CD-ROM. In addition to reassessing measures for inclusionAadding measures that empirically provide better patient evaluation and subtracting measures that have been supersededAchapter authors have thoroughly examined and revised measure discussions to provide the most relevant and timely information for clinicians. Costs, translations, and contact information for each measure have also been updated. This handy compendium includes both diagnostic tools and measures of symptoms, function and quality of life, medication side effects, and other clinically relevant parameters, focusing on those measures that can be easily used in either clinical practice or research. Most of the measures are designed to improve the reliability and validity of patient assessment over what might be accomplished in a standard clinical interview and demonstrate that the use of formal measures can improve the collection, synthesis, and reporting of information as compared with the use of unstructured examinations. Seventeen disorder-specific chapters, organized in DSM-IV order, include measures for disorders of childhood and adolescence, cognitive disorders, sexual dysfunction, eating disorders, sleep disorders, aggression, and more. The discussion of each measure includes goals, description, practical issues, psychometric properties, and clinical utility, followed by references and suggested readings. This revised edition includes updated measure descriptions, new measure variants and research, and newly selected measures particularly appropriate to the domain of discussion. As a clinical tool, this book: -Describes how, when, and to what purpose measures are used -Points out practical issues to consider in choosing a measure for clinical use -Addresses limitations in the use of measures including ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that influence their interpretation Use of this special resource is further enhanced by a CD-ROM containing the full text of 150 these measuresAan invaluable aid for reference and clinical decision-making.

Relational Processes and DSM-V

Neuroscience, Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment

David Reiss, Lynn G. Underwood
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 293

Seeking to integrate the large volume of clinical research on relational processes and mental health disorders with other scientific advances in psychiatry, Relational Processes and DSM-V builds on exciting advances in clinical research on troubled relationships. These advances included marked improvements in the assessment and epidemiology of troubled relationships as well the use of genetics, neuroscience, and immunology to explore the importance of close relationships in clinical practice. Advances in family-based intervention, and prevention are also highlighted to help practitioners and researchers find common ground and begin an empirically based discussion about the best way to revise the DSM. Given the overwhelming research showing that relationships play a role in regulating neurobiology and genetic expression and are critical for understanding schizophrenia, conduct disorder, and depression among other disorders, relational processes must be a part of any empirically based plan for revising psychiatric nosology in DSM-V. The chapters in this book counter the perspective that we can safely discard the biopsychosocial model that has guided psychiatry in the past. The contributors examine the relevance of close relationships in such issues as the basic psychopathology of mental disorders, factors influencing maintenance and relapse, sources of burden for family members, and guiding family-based interventions. By tying relational processes to basic research on psychopathology, they demonstrate the value of integrating basic behavioral and brain research with a sophisticated understanding of the self-organizing and self-sustaining characteristics of relationships. Coverage includes: -research linking relational processes to neuroscience, neurobiology, health outcomes, intervention research, prevention research, and genetics -consideration of specific circumstances, such as promoting healthy parenting following divorce and relational processes in depressed Latino adolescents -optimal approaches to the assessment of relational processes with clinical significance, such as child abuse, partner abuse, and expressed emotion. -a simple introduction to the methodology of taxometrics, offering insight into whether key relational processes are distinct categories or continuously distributed variables -an overview of the links between relational processes and psychiatric outcomes, providing a theoretical foundation for the discussion of links to psychopathology Together, these contributions seek to develop a shared commitment among clinicians, researchers, and psychopathologists to take seriously the issue of relational processes as they relate to diagnoses within DSM-and to encourage mental health care workers at all levels to harness the generative and healing properties of intimate relationships and make them a focus of clinical practice. It is a book that will prove useful to all who are interested in integrating greater sensitivity to relational processes in their work.

A Research Agenda for DSM-V

Darrel A. Regier, David J. Kupfer
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 352

In the ongoing quest to improve our psychiatric diagnostic system, we are now searching for new approaches to understanding the etiological and pathophysiological mechanisms that can improve the validity of our diagnoses and the consequent power of our preventive and treatment interventionsAventuring beyond the current DSM paradigm and DSM-IV framework. This thought-provoking volumeAproduced as a partnership between the American Psychiatric Association, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the National Institute on Drug AbuseArepresents a far-reaching attempt to stimulate research and discussion in the field in preparation for the eventual start of the DSM-V process, still several years hence. The book -Explores a variety of basic nomenclature issues, including the desirability of rating the quality and quantity of information available to support the different disorders in the DSM in order to indicate the disparity of empirical support across the diagnostic system. -Offers a neuroscience research agenda to guide development of a pathophysiologically based classification for DSM-V, which reviews genetic, brain imaging, postmortem, and animal model research and includes strategic insights for a new research agenda. -Presents highlights of recent progress in developmental neuroscience, genetics, psychology, psychopathology, and epidemiology, using a bioecological perspective to focus on the first two decades of life, when rapid changes in behavior, emotion and cognition occur. -Discusses how to address two important gaps in the current DSM-IV: (1) the categorical method of diagnosing personality disorders and their relationship with Axis I disorders, and (2) the limited provision for the diagnosis of relational disordersAsuggesting a research agenda for personality disorders that considers replacing the current categorical approach with a dimensional classification of personality. -Reevaluates the relationship between mental disorders and disability, asserting that research into disability and impairment would benefit from the diagnosis of mental disorders be uncoupled from a requirement for impairment or disability to foster a more vigorous research agenda on the etiologies, courses, and treatment of mental disorders as well as disabilities and to avert unintended consequences of delayed diagnosis and treatment. -Examines the importance of culture in psychopathology and the main cultural variables at play in the diagnostic process, stating that training present and future professionals in the need to include cultural factors in the diagnostic process is a logical step in any attempt to develop comprehensive research programs in psychology, psychiatry, and related disciplines. This fascinating work, with contributions from an international group of research investigators, reaches into the core of psychiatry, providing invaluable background and insights for all psychology and psychiatry professionalsAfood for thought and further research that will be relevant for years to come.
