Peer Review

Peer review of this article as part of the UCSF Spring 2022 Wikipedia Elective course.


Overall, the edits made to this article are outstanding and I believe they significantly improve upon the previous version of the article.

Two sections in particular that I believe had the most major improvements are the "distinction from ICD" and "superficial symptoms" sections.

The edits improve upon the article's readability, content, and flow and are appropriate for an encyclopedia audience at large.


Comments:

  • Specifically, the edits you made to the “superficial symptoms” section did an excellent job to improve the readability and flow of that section.
  • The edits you made to the “distinction from ICD” section greatly improve the reader’s ability to understand the differences between ICD versus DSM by expanding on the given descriptions of each.
  • References appear appropriate without primary literature cited.
  • All edits you have made have kept an appropriately neutral tone and minimized jargon all the while improving the content, readability, and flow of the article.


Suggestions:

  • One minor suggestion could be to include a reference for the ICD manual in the “Distinction from ICD” section where you talked about mental and behavioral disorders being included in chapter 5 of the ICD. For example, including a reference to chapter 5 of the latest or most commonly used version of the ICD manual might work well.

Thanks for the peer review! I'll definitely look into adding the citation. Thanks for the help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zeboman123 ( talkcontribs) 18:58, 21 March 2022 (UTC) Reply reply

DSM-II first printing to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder

On March 16, 2022, at 06:12, a subheading under DSM-II (1968) was changed from "Seventh printing of the DSM-II (1974)" to "Sixth printing. . . ." to indicate the first printing that removed homosexuality as a mental disorder. I own a copy of the DSM-II which first included a note about eliminating "Homosexuality" per se as a mental disorder. The printing is the seventh, not the sixth. The copyright page shows the Sixth printing as issued in October 1973, which is before the APA trustees voted to make the change. They voted in December 1973, and the decision was upheld in May 1974 in a referendum of the voting members of the association. The seventh printing, in July 1974, includes a page with "Special Note — Seventh Printing" and the announcement that since the last printing (6th) of the manual, the trustees voted to make the change.

You are, of course, correct. (There's nothing like owning the actual text, eh? ;o) Thank you for your very appropriate edit to the article. I added a reference and an explanatory note ( diff) since this printing issue is confusing. Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) [he/him] 17:26, 1 May 2022 (UTC) Reply reply
Your explanatory note is an excellent addition and helps to resolve confusion. Rawars ( talk) 18:08, 1 May 2022 (UTC) Reply reply

ADHD

If you were diagnosed as a hyperactive child when you young and diagnosed with ADHD as an adult could you possibly get addicted to to medication prescribed for high ADHD as an adult? 174.240.50.138 ( talk) 20:57, 12 June 2022 (UTC) Reply reply

Interesting question, but probably not the type of call that would be appropriate to make on wikipedia. And even if it were, would likely belong on the ADHD or medications for ADHD page, not the DSM page HumetheHistorian ( talk) 07:29, 3 July 2022 (UTC) Reply reply
I agree with HumetheHistorian that this isn't the best place to ask such a question. The best place is the Reference Desk, as long as one is not seeking specific medical advice. Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) [he/him] 22:19, 3 July 2022 (UTC) Reply reply

DSM-5-TR

If someone can add a bit about DSM-5-TR, while being mindful of the APA's copyright, here are a couple of articles that will help:

"Bible" of Psychiatry

Currently the introduction calls it the "bible" of Psychiatry. There is no source for this, so it comes across like an opinion rather than verifiable information. I think it might qualify as WP:FLOWERY. I imagine people outside the US might consider something else to the "bible" of psychiatry, so it seems somewhat American-centric. I'm not planning to change it but thought I would leave my feedback. Pythagimedes ( talk) 23:48, 21 July 2022 (UTC) Reply reply

Actually, I looked at the edit history and this seems it was recent addition by an IP, so I'm going to go ahead and just remove it. Pythagimedes ( talk) 23:56, 21 July 2022 (UTC) Reply reply
