Ah the DSM. ( humour me, it’s been a while).
I’m still to find anyone who thinks it’s good for anything other than claiming insurance. And given that (as far as I can see) insurance is all about not giving people help wherever possible, I begin to believe that the DSM is the most futile thing ever published.
Let alone all the fuss that goes into coming up with one of them.
I think a future cartoon/book project will have to be “101 uses for the DSM”.
Unless it is just a massive conspiracy to keep bored therapist minds active. What do you reckon – first one to get a Bingo each year wins a bottle of Absinthe at the annual APA convention?
Go on… confess… I won’t tell anyone…
