Frances - Laurent to the crisis of DSM 3/9

For Frances, DSM diagnostic inflation has to do with the context, not the text. It is then to see how they are applying the DSM, not the DSM itself. One example: after the appearance of DSM-IV in 1997, the US government authorizes direct advertising of psychotropic drugs. The marketing is directed from that time, doctors and consumers. metaphors as "chemical imbalance" and the medicalization of disease goes by the logic of FMCG are invented. A no limit is set so that parents' associations also want access to diagnostics to benefit from appropriate services: no diagnosis, no access to services. ... Read more
