To Whom It May

Yes, the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth
Edition) came out in America about two or three months ago. It is published by
the American Psychiatric Association, 1400 K Street N.W., Washington, D. C.

I understand that it is the major source of financial support for the American
Psychiatric Association, since each edition produces millions of dollars of
income. Thus, you may expect future editions on a regular basis.Changes from
DSM-IIIR appear to be primarily in anxiety, mood, and personality disorders,
and there appears now to be a closer fit to the ICD series.

I am sure they would appreciate your order.

I have been trying to establish whether the APA has published a further
version of their DSM. I saw a reference to it somewhere as DSM-IV.

Their distributor in the UK appears to have no record of it on their
computer, so is there anyone who can confirm the position for me?

Many thanks.
