Should Social Workers Use "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5?"
Frances, Allen; Jones, K. Dayle
Research on Social Work Practice, v24 n1 p11-12 Jan 2014

However, the "DSM-5" revision includes scientifically unfounded, inadequately tested, and potentially dangerous diagnoses that may lead them to question its integrity and to find alternatives.
