Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5®) by American Psychiatric AssociationNew features and enhancements make DSM-5® easier to use across all settings: The chapter organization reflects a lifespan approach, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood (such as neurodevelopmental disorders) at the beginning of the manual, and those more typical of older adults (such as neurocognitive disorders) placed at the end. Also included are age-related factors specific to diagnosis. The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations. The revised organizational structure recognizes symptoms that span multiple diagnostic categories, providing new clinical insight in diagnosis. Specific criteria have been streamlined, consolidated, or clarified to be consistent with clinical practice (including the consolidation of autism disorder, Asperger's syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder into autism spectrum disorder; the streamlined classification of bipolar and depressive disorders; the restructuring of substance use disorders for consistency and clarity; and the enhanced specificity for major and mild neurocognitive disorders). Dimensional assessments for research and validation of clinical results have been provided. Both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes are included for each disorder, and the organizational structure is consistent with the new ICD-11 in development.

Deployment Psychology by Amy B. Adler, Paul D. Bliese, Carl Andrew Castro (Eds.)The impact of combat on service members' mental health has received considerable attention.

This book is intended to fill that gap. It represents the first comprehensive review of mental health interventions across the deployment cycle and will help guide the field of military psychology in developing a much-needed support system for service members in the years to come.

Military Life: the psychology of serving in peace and combat by Carl Andrew Castro, Thomas W. Britt, Amy B. Adler (Eds.)Reveals the psychological challenges facing men and women in the armed forces. Experts examine challenges on the battlefield, such as women coming to terms with life after being a prisoner of war, or soldiers dealing with mistakenly killing civilians. But life in the armed forces presents less dramatic, daily challenges. Away from the front lines, soldiers have to raise their families, sometimes as single parents. Children have to learn what it's like to be a child in a military family and to make sense of war.

Military Mental Health Care by Cheryl Lawhorne-Scott; Don Philpott; Sgt. Bryan (Foreword by)Authors detail each issues' symptoms, discuss treatments, and the best ways for veterans to access those treatments while readjusting to civilian life. They connect and explain many alarming trends, such as joblessness, poverty and addiction, appearing in our nation s veteran population on a broader scale. PTSD and struggles with anxiety affect far more than veterans themselves, as sobering phenomena like homelessness, suicide, domestic violence and divorce too often become realities for those returning from war.
