UNSPECIFIED. (2004) Should patients and their families contribute to the DSM-V process? PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES, 55 (2). pp. 133-138. ISSN 1075-2730Full text not available from this repository.
The authors consider arguments for and against the formal inclusion of mentally ill patients and their families in the deliberative processes leading to DSM-V. These discussions involve six key issues: the scientific status of psychiatric classifications; public policy and political considerations; the practical implications of widening the review process; the capacities of lay members of the workgroups; freedom of expression and the openness of the review process; and the uniqueness of consumer perspectives. The authors conclude that involving patients and families in the DSM review process is supportable on both scientific and public policy grounds.
