Scattergood Ethics

Categories & Controversies: The Ethical Dimensions of the DSM-5

In January 2011, the ScattergoodEthics Program convened a year-long work group to examine ethical issues emerging from the publication of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), which will be published in May 2013.  This project is supported by a grant from the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics.
