The Human Growth and Development chapter was revised based on the DSM-5. Updates to this chapter include the following:

  • Elimination of the multiaxial classification system and reorganization of diagnostic categories
  • New diagnoses (for example, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Hoarding Disorder)
  • Consolidation of previous diagnoses into a single diagnosis (for example, Autism Spectrum Disorder)

For many diagnoses, the names have been changed, the diagnostic criteria have been modified, and/or specifiers have been added.
