#PHILOSOPHY ~ HAS IT BEEN JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS? ~ LISTLESS JOY AND BROKEN? ~ WAIT! ~ Charlotte M. Liebel

There are highs and lows every day.

Sharliebel's Blog

Peace be with you, a day at a time, friend. Glad to hear that you are feeling better today. Does anyone find the ‘perfect’ day? Doubt that there is such a day. There are highs and lows every day. Some days of sadness are an accumulation of several days of broken expectations. Soon all those little joyless days are over and done! There is no place for listless joy to go but ‘up’ and ‘happy’ since we have traveled the road before. Soon, we can expect a ‘kinder’ day and even an unexpected ‘happier’ day. Given time, it will come to us if we can but wait. Just one more day.

#PSYCH #EDUCATION ~ The DSM IV ~ PSYCH DISORDERS ~ MENTAL HEALTH ~

The DSM IV is published by the American Psychiatric Association.  Much of the information from the Psychiatric Disorders pages is summarized from the pages of this text.  Should any questions arise concerning incongruencies or inaccurate information, you should always default to the DSM as the ultimate guide to mental disorders.

Visit the site for more information.

The DSM uses a multiaxial or multidimensional approach to diagnosing because rarely do other factors in a person’s life not impact their mental health.  It assesses five dimensions as described below:

Axis I: Clinical Syndromes

  • This is what we typically think of as the diagnosis (e.g., depression, schizophrenia, social phobia)

Axis II: Developmental Disorders and Personality Disorders

  • Developmental disorders include autism and mental retardation, disorders which are typically first evident in childhood

  • Personality disorders are clinical syndromes which have a more long lasting symptoms and encompass the individual’s way of interacting with the world.  They include Paranoid, Antisocial, and Borderline Personality Disorders.

Axis III: Physical Conditions which play a role in the development, continuance, or exacerbation of Axis I and II Disorders

  • Physical conditions such as brain injury or HIV/AIDS that can result in symptoms of mental illness are included here.

Axis IV: Severity of Psychosocial Stressors

  • Events in a persons life, such as death of a loved one, starting a new job, college, unemployment, and even marriage can impact the disorders listed in Axis I and II.  These events are both listed and rated for this axis.

Axis V: Highest Level of Functioning

  • On the final axis, the clinician rates the person’s level of functioning both at the present time and the highest level within the previous year.  This helps the clinician understand how the above four axes are affecting the person and what type of changes could be expected.
