DSM-5 is the new manual suggested by the American Psychiatric Association to be used to diagnose your mental health, your psychological problems, or your emotional issues. Your insurance reimbursements likely will be determined by what codes your therapist, counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist will use on your insurance forms.
What does this new manual actually mean for you as a person who is trying to evòlve your happiness or resolve issues of unhappiness, depression, anxiety or stress?
Dr. Carol Francis provides you a synopsis for you to consider, positive and ponderous and puzzling. This discussion may prove pertinent to your children, insurance reimbursement and the professional assistance with your family's emotional well-being.

As parents, the two of us (Diane and Rebecca) sought answers as to why our own children were trapped by an alphabet soup of labels despite their obvious abilities. While we researched and wrote Bright Not Broken, we realized that we were asking questions no other book has addressed: Why does the DSM system lead to an alphabet soup of labels? Could it be that our system is fundamentally flawed or incapable of meeting the needs of practicing clinicians and parents? If not clinicians and caregive
There's a new update to the Diagnostics and Statistics Manual (DSM) , the official diagnostic guideline for psychologists and psychiatrists. You may not realize it, but the DSM shapes how medical doctors, mental health professionals, and even the courts treat sex-related issues. I've got a bunch to say about the changes they've made and the ones I wish they'd make. Sex addiction, gender identity, and other politically-charged sex issues will be on my agenda an

Difficulty discarding items, one feature of Hoarding Disorder, is relatively common, with 1 in 5 people in the U.S. endorsing difficulty discarding in a national survey. In this talk, Dr. Rodriguez will describe how hoarding behaviors, once thought to be part of OCD, are now considered to be a separate disorder called “Hoarding Disorder.” Hoarding disorder is now listed in the DSM-5 diagnostic manual. Dr. Rodriguez will further discuss why it can be so difficult to let go of possessions, what treatments and services are available for individuals with Hoarding Disorder, and which new treatments are now being developed.

Thank you to all the listeners and supporters of The Aberration and NWO Truth Radio.
Today we will discuss a documentary that talks about the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual. This is a catalog of mental disorders who's influence pervades many aspects of modern society including our governments, courts, schools and the media. It is Psychiatry's engine that drives a $330 Billion dollar industry while harming a lot of patients in its wake. But is there any proof behind the DSM, or is it nothing more than a pseudoscientific sham? Is there really such a thing as a "chemical imbalance"?
This documentary called, "Diagnostic & Statistical Manual, Psychiatry's Deadliest Scam" (put out by CCHR - Citizens Commission on Human Rights), was viewed at the Kalyana Centre and we feel it warrants some serious discussion. Learn how the DSM is connected to the ICD Codes that are used to bill insurance companies for pharmaceutical treatment. With all of the people who are taking psychiatric drugs these days we really need to be looking at what these drugs are doing to us in the short and long term. Can the use of these potent pharmaceuticals even be fatal?
Perhpas we need to be asking, what are the symptoms telling us and what are the natural alternatives for healing? Can we simply be pre-disposed to certain conditions because of our original mind/body constitution? Is there a place for hypnosis and Ayurveda in the management of such disorders, or are the disorders themselves, simply labels that place people in boxes rather than treating them as individuals having the full spectrum of feelings and emotions that we experience as human beings?
This discussion should be quite enlightening and may warrant additional shows.

t’s not a stretch to suggest that Americans are over medicated. In 2011 doctors across the nation wrote an astounding four billion medical prescriptions, amounting to an average of 13 prescriptions for every man, woman and child in the United States. In the next few weeks the American Psychiatric Associations is releasing their updated fifth version their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5); the so-called ‘bible’ of psychiatric diagnoses. The new manual promises to take mental illness and the use of prescription drugs to a whole new level.
You may not be considered “crazy” or “mentally ill” today, but under the new guidelines experts say half of us will be diagnosed with a psychiatric condition in the future.
