To the DSM-5 User Community: When the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released at the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting in May 2013, it marked the end of more than a decade’s journey in revising the criteria for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders. Although DSM-5 is now complete, a great deal of work remains, and we are hopeful that once again you will play an active role in this next important phase of refining the manual. Our highest priority is ensuring the proper use of DSM-5, including providing training materials; answering questions about its implementation in clinical care and research; clarifying concerns about the new ICD codes and insurance billing; and correcting any errors. Information about DSM-5’s developmental history, including Task Force and Work Group membership and relevant resource documents, will also continue to be maintained here. David Kupfer, MD, Chair, DSM-5 Task Force

Dealing with BPD in an Employee or Coworker - Borderline Personality Disorder In 2000 a survey of the top Fortune 1000 found that every work day, 723 workers are physically attacked, 43,800 are harassed and 16,400 threatening incidents take place. These events are brought about by a difficult employee’s personality. A recent article published in the Journal of Business and Economics Research found borderline traits to be in the top three most difficult employee traits for managers and coworkers. A better understanding of personality disorders and their underlying psychological characteristics can help managers, supervisors and co-workers to better handle a difficult employee. Personality disorders can have a negative impact on the workplace. An estimated 10 million Americans have borderline personality disorder (BPD) and its symptoms can be disruptive in a working environment.

Mental Health Care Services by Family Physicians (Position Paper) While psychiatric professionals are an essential element of the total health care continuum, the majority of patients with mental health issues will continue to access the health care system through primary care physicians.

To achieve those goals, the AAFP advocates the following principles: Background

Personality disorders come in many forms - avoidant, antisocial, narcissistic to name just a few. They make up a list of conditions difficult to characterize, difficult to treat. A team of psychiatric experts just wrapped up five years of work aimed at simplifying the diagnostic guidelines. Over the weekend the American Psychiatric Association rejected the proposed changes. 12.08.2010 - Our brains are wired so we can better hear ourselves speak, new study shows Like the mute button on the TV remote control, our brains filter out unwanted noise so we can focus on what we’re listening to. But when it comes to following our own speech, a new brain study from the University of California, Berkeley, shows that instead of one homogenous mute button, we have a network of volume settings that can selectively silence and amplify the sounds we make and hear. Activity in the auditory cortex when we speak and listen is amplified in some regions of the brain and muted in others.
