Article Abstract

Because this piece has no abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

When confronted with a psychosocial problem in the office,nothing is more frustrating to me than an unintelligible referencetext. The DSM-IV and DSM-IV-PC are excellent resources,but I frequently find myself wondering if the peoplethat wrote them were previously employed to write the ICD-9and CPT code books. When I encourage our resident physiciansto use the DSM-IV, they frequently give me a look as if to ask"What language is this thing written in?"

Some JCP and PCC articles are available in PDF format only. Please click the PDF link at the top of this page to access the full text.
