World renown psychiatrist, and former Chair of the DSM-IV Task Force, Dr. Allen Frances talks with Marianne Sarola-Russo from The Coffee Klatch Special Needs Radio about the proposed changes to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) currently under revision.

Program blurb:

“Dr Allen Frances Chair of the DSM-IV Task Force returns to discuss the confusion and concerns over the soon to be released DSMV. How will the changes impact your child? What do the changes mean for your child’s accommodations? Why are so many additions and revisions causing so much controversy?

The DSM is one of the most powerful manuals of our time. The criteria within determines not only the diagnosis and labels but the treatments and funding for our children.

Join the man who has been outspoken and steadfast in his beliefs about the state of the DSM and how it will impact our lives.”
