a€œIn this revised edition of Strengthening the DSM, the authors use a comprehensive yet easy-to-grasp formulation of diversity and resilience to establish the most accurate diagnostic criteria for each psychiatric condition. Their readers will be edified by the clarity with which they describe the major changes that were introduced with the publication of the DSM-5.
