about this item
The first book to present DSM-5 diagnoses within a systems context
The first text to present DSM-5 diagnoses within a relational perspective, DSM-5 and Family Systems delivers timely content aimed at training marriage and family therapists, clinical mental health counselors, and other systems-oriented practitioners. It reflects how the DSM-5 examines, for the first time, its diagnostic categories from the perspective of cultural and environmental impact on the development of individual disorders and conditions. This comprehensive text provides students with an understanding of how to approach a diagnosis as it relates to assessments, treatment planning, and ethical implications from a family and relational systems perspective.
With contributions from distinguished faculty at counseling and marriage and family therapy training programs, each chapter includes an overview of the DSM in family systems contexts, cultural aspects, family systems assessments and interventions, and ethical and legal implications. Abundant case vignettes aid students in conceptualizing diagnoses in each DSM-5 category.
