This volume is one in a series of 13 books published by American Psychiatric Publishing focusing on “refining the research agenda for DSM-V.” Some of these address diagnostic issues while others focus on dimensions important for consideration as DSM-5 is developed, including age and gender considerations, relational processes, and, of course, religious and spiritual issues.

Beyond advancing a research agenda to improve the next iteration of the diagnostic and statistical manual, this volume provides a comprehensive review of the literature in all the major diagnostic areas (depression, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, substance use disorders, anxiety and adjustment disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, and the “V code” of religious and spiritual problems).
