Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Dimensional Approaches in Diagnostic Classification, by Helzer
and colleagues, has a timely focus on refining the research agenda
for DSM-V, advocating a stronger dimensional emphasis to our
categorically structured current DSM-IV. The book was published
in 2008 with a selection of articles that were originally published
in the International Journal of Methods in Psychiatric Research in
2007. The articles reported the proceedings of a conference sponsored
by the American Psychiatric Association, World Health Organization,
and National Institutes of Health entitled "The Future
of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Refining the Research Agenda."
