Among the many changes proposed for the DSM-V are the inclusion of disorders not currently listed in the DSM-IV-TR. Clicking on the links below will take you the related sections of the DSM-V web site where you can read the proposed diagnostic criteria for these new diagnoses as well as the rationale for proposing each one:
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Preschool Children
- Temper Dysregulation Disorder with Dysphoria
- Callous and Unemotional Specifier for Conduct Disorder
- Learning Disabilities
- Non-Suicidal Self Injury
- Non-Suicidal Self Injury Not Otherwise Specified
The Temper Dysregulation Disorder with Dysphoria proposal is particularly controversial and will be discussed in a separate post when we consider changes affecting children with mood disorders.
