Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    DSM-5 continues to utilize a section specifically for Child and Adolescence?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because DSM-5 does not have a specific section dedicated solely to Child and Adolescence. Instead, it incorporates information and criteria for diagnosing mental disorders in individuals of all ages throughout the manual. The DSM-5 takes a lifespan approach, recognizing that many disorders can manifest differently in children and adolescents compared to adults. Therefore, it does not have a separate section exclusively for Child and Adolescence.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Neurodevelopmental Disorders" because ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by difficulties with attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The DSM-5 categorizes ADHD under the section of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, which includes conditions that typically manifest in early childhood and impact the development of the nervous system and brain.

    Which is true about the new diagnosis, Disruptive Mood Regulation Disorder?

    • A.

      An alternative to ODD diagnosis

    • B.

      An alternative to Bipolar diagnosis for children

    • C.

      A better option for angry children under 18 who have a mood problem as well

    • E.

      All of the above

    • F.

      Alternative to ODD and Bipolar, a better option for angry children with mood component, but not an alternative to Conduct Disorder

    Correct Answer
    F. Alternative to ODD and Bipolar, a better option for angry children with mood component, but not an alternative to Conduct Disorder
    Explanation
    Disruptive Mood Regulation Disorder (DMDD) is a new diagnosis that serves as an alternative to Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Bipolar Disorder for children. It is also a better option for angry children under 18 who have a mood problem in addition to their disruptive behavior. However, DMDD is not considered an alternative to Conduct Disorder. Therefore, the correct answer is that DMDD is an alternative to ODD and Bipolar, a better option for angry children with a mood component, but not an alternative to Conduct Disorder.

    Separation anxiety in children is the same classification in both DSM-IV and DSM-5

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because separation anxiety in children is classified differently in DSM-IV and DSM-5. In DSM-IV, it was classified as a disorder under the category of Anxiety Disorders, while in DSM-5, it is classified as a disorder under the category of Anxiety Disorders as well as under the category of Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    An individual with an established DSM-IV diagnosis of Asperger's disorder can be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in DSM-5

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the DSM-5, Asperger's disorder is no longer recognized as a separate diagnosis. Instead, it falls under the umbrella term of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This means that individuals who previously had a diagnosis of Asperger's disorder can now be diagnosed with ASD according to the updated criteria in the DSM-5. Therefore, the statement "An individual with an established DSM-IV diagnosis of Asperger's disorder can be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in DSM-5" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as a Neurodevelopmental Disorder is not likely to cause confusion in the transition from DSM-IV to DSM-5

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the transition from DSM-IV to DSM-5 did cause some confusion in the classification of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). DSM-IV had separate diagnoses for different types of ASD, such as Asperger's Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), whereas DSM-5 merged these diagnoses into a single category of ASD. This change led to some uncertainty and confusion among clinicians and researchers in accurately diagnosing and categorizing individuals with ASD. Therefore, the transition did cause confusion in the classification of ASD.

  • 8. 

    PTSD is a complex sub-category of Anxiety Disorders in DSM-5

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is not a sub-category of Anxiety Disorders in DSM-5. It is actually classified as a separate disorder. While PTSD does involve anxiety symptoms, it is characterized by specific symptoms that arise after experiencing a traumatic event. Therefore, the statement that PTSD is a complex sub-category of Anxiety Disorders in DSM-5 is false.

  • 9. 

    ADHD can now be diagnosed as a co-occurring disorder with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    ADHD can now be diagnosed as a co-occurring disorder with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This means that individuals with ASD can also exhibit symptoms of ADHD, such as difficulty focusing, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. The recognition of ADHD as a co-occurring disorder with ASD allows for a more comprehensive understanding and treatment approach for individuals who may have both conditions. It also highlights the importance of addressing the unique needs and challenges of individuals with ASD who may also have ADHD symptoms.

    All are true EXCEPT the following:

    • A.

      OCD has been taken out of Anxiety Disorders and now in its own section, Obsessive and Compulsive Related Disorders

    • B.

      Panic can be diagnosed as a specifier for any Anxiety Disorder diagnosis

    • C.

      The code for Substance Dependence keeps this as a diagnosis in DSM-5

    • D.

      The DSM-5 code for Substance use, mild is the same as Substance Abuse in DSM-IV

    Correct Answer
    C. The code for Substance Dependence keeps this as a diagnosis in DSM-5
    Explanation
    The code for Substance Dependence does not keep it as a diagnosis in DSM-5. In DSM-5, Substance Dependence has been replaced with Substance Use Disorder, which encompasses both substance abuse and substance dependence. The criteria for Substance Use Disorder are based on a continuum of severity, ranging from mild to severe. Therefore, the statement that the code for Substance Dependence keeps this as a diagnosis in DSM-5 is incorrect.

    DSM-5 changed criterion A in Schizophrenia to have greater specificity of sub-types

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because DSM-5 did not change criterion A in Schizophrenia to have greater specificity of sub-types. DSM-5 actually eliminated the sub-types of Schizophrenia, such as paranoid, disorganized, catatonic, etc., and instead introduced a dimensional approach to diagnosing schizophrenia based on symptom severity. This change was made to address the limitations and lack of reliability associated with the sub-type system.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Substance Use disorders in DSM-5 use severity measures from mild to severe rather than "abuse" and "dependence."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the DSM-5, the classification of substance use disorders has changed from using the terms "abuse" and "dependence" to using severity measures ranging from mild to severe. This change was made to provide a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of substance use disorders, as it recognizes that the severity of these disorders can vary and that they exist on a spectrum. By using severity measures, the DSM-5 allows for a more nuanced and individualized approach to diagnosing and treating substance use disorders.

      It is no longer used in DSM-5

    • C.

      NOS shows the limitations of stand-alone diagnostic categories

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The NOS specifier for diagnoses was used as a generic fallback option in DSM-IV for clinicians. It is no longer used in DSM-5. The NOS specifier shows the limitations of stand-alone diagnostic categories.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    DSM-5 takes a developmental approach to organizing the diagnostic classification system

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The DSM-5, which stands for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, does indeed take a developmental approach to organizing its diagnostic classification system. This means that it considers the developmental stages and changes that individuals go through from childhood to adulthood when categorizing and diagnosing mental disorders. By taking a developmental approach, the DSM-5 recognizes that certain disorders may manifest differently at different stages of life and allows for a more comprehensive understanding of mental health conditions across the lifespan.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    All are true EXCEPT?

    • A.

      DSM-5 promotes continuity whereby related diagnostic categories follow one another from chapter to chapter

    • B.

      GAF will likely still be used in DSM-5

    • C.

      DSM-5 takes a first step to acknowledge that there are overlapping elements across diagnoses, such as depressive and anxiety symptoms

    • D.

      Personality disorders are still part of DSM-5

    Correct Answer
    B. GAF will likely still be used in DSM-5
    Explanation
    The statement "GAF will likely still be used in DSM-5" is not true. The Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) was removed from the DSM-5 and replaced with the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 (WHODAS 2.0). This change was made to provide a more comprehensive assessment of functioning.
