The Real Problems With Psychiatry

This guy, I like.  A new DSM is coming out defining mental diseases.  One thing that still lacks a definition; “mental disease.”

What are the important changes made in the new DSM, and how will they affect patients?

It’s going to cause a lot of trouble when Asperger’s Syndrome disappears. It may cause some trouble when the bereavement exclusion disappears. That’s a good example of why the APA’s going to be in trouble. It was so unnecessary, so stupid. They’ve made the absurd statement that they know the difference, two weeks after someone’s wife dies, whether that person is “depressed,” or just “in mourning.” Come on! Who are these guys?

Lots of examples and explanations on this pseudo and how it *could* one day become real science.
