Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5-TR™)


The Organization of DSM-5-TR™ Updated Edition

Developmental Lifespan 

DSM-5 and DSM-5-TR are organized in sequence with the developmental lifespan. This organization is evident in every chapter and within individual diagnostic categories, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood detailed first, followed by those in adolescence, adulthood, and later life. Disorders previously addressed in a single “infancy, childhood and adolescence” chapter are now integrated throughout the manual.

  • Neurodevelopmental Disorders
  • Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders
  • Bipolar and Related Disorders
