Publisher:
Routledge
Place of publication:

Gender identity disorders are included as formal diagnoses in both the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the International Classification of Diseases. The fact that gender identity disorders are classified as mental disorders is increasingly being contested, with some critics arguing for removal  and others for reform. This article summarizes the diagnostic criteria and reviews the empirical evidence and scientific debate, concluding with recommendations for revision of the Standards of Care for Gender Identity Disorders set forth by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and directions for future research.

Whither DSM and ICD, Chapter V?

Author:
MIDDLETON Hugh
Journal article citation:
Mental Health Review Journal, 13(4), December 2008, pp.4-15.
Publisher:
Emerald

Consideration is given to the extent to which the DSM and ICD approach to psychiatric case definition and treatment supports clinical activity. Their validity as a way of defining 'mental illness' is found wanting and they do not, in themselves, usefully guide treatment. These conclusions are set in a critical realist approach to 'mental illness', which draws attention to the legitimacy of several differing perspectives, each reflecting their own sets of interests and allegiances. DSM-V and ICD-11 are due to be published in 2012 and 2014 respectively, and their architects are called upon to be clear about which of these constituencies they are representing.

... were also significantly lower than the corresponding WAIS-R scores. The shift from WAIS-R to WAIS-III means that 66% more people meet criterion A for the diagnosis of learning disability and hence this has major resource implications for health service providers.

Evaluating long bone fractures in children: a biomechanical approach with illustrative cases

Authors:
PIERCE Mary Clyde, et al
Journal article citation:
Child Abuse and Neglect, 28(5), May 2004, pp.505-524.
Publisher:
Elsevier

This article uses a biomechanical approach to address: long bone fractures in infants and young children, how bone structure and material properties affect bone strength and likelihood of fracture, and how a specific fracture morphology reflects a specific load that has caused the failure or fracture pattern. It also discusses the factors that should be considered when evaluating a child with a long bone fracture.

A population-based study of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) experienced in differing patient groups: an effort to replicate Vercoulen et al.'s model of CFS

Vercoulen et al.'s (1998) model characterizes patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) as having insufficient motivation for physical activity or recovery, lacking an internal locus of control, and maintaining a self-defeating preoccupation with symptoms. However, this model has only been tested in a poorly specified group using a single comparison sample. This study investigates whether Vercoulen et al.'s model provides an adequate description of CFS in a community-based sample. A community-based sample of 28,783 people recruited through telephone interviewing in the USA produced five groups (CFS, CF-psychiatrically-explained symptoms, CF-medically-unexplained symptoms, CF-substance misuse, and idiopathic CF). The data were analysed using path analysis with the endogenous (dependent) variables, fatigue severity, physical activity, and impairment, were ratio-level measurements and consisted of at least four values. The exogenous (independent) variables except for causal attribution of fatigue were also ratio-level measurements. The results found that the Vercoulen et al. model adequately represented chronic fatigue secondary to psychiatric conditions but not CFS. This finding points to important differences between CFS and psychiatrically-explained chronic fatigue which may have an impact on the development of therapy as well as explanatory models.
