A main criticisms of the DSM has been that it is seeking to medicalise human nature (grief, shyness etc) and this is causing a distraction to more serious mental health problems.
The DSM is an authority on diagnosing mental disorders - but is it too powerful? Is the tinkering of the manual distracting health professionals from established and serious mental disorders? Why do so many psychiatrists use the DSM?
