Help with ICD10 and DSM
ashaver 8 years ago in ICD-10/DSM5 • updated by Sara Serier 8 years ago • 8
After the phone conference I am more confused then I was originally. Do we still use the DSM V for diagnostic criteria or is only using the Blue and Green book for ICD-10 ok? Why does the Blue and Green book have 4th and 5th digits that are not in ICD-10? Please help.

Can you send me a link for the exact ICD10 Classification of Mental and Behavioral Disorders that we should purchase. There seems to be so many options when I google that...( I see a First Edition in Amazon and multiple PDF Files, that look we could print off ourselves) but I want to get the correct one.
You're right in that is has codes and descriptions (i.e. diagnostic criteria) but they will be helpful for you. The codes will match what is on the Tabular index, which is what is in Procentive. However, you'll find the diag. criteria will be different than the DSM5 manual. You have to you use your professional judgement based on those differences and decided what Dx code to give the client.
My recommendation is that you have:
1. DSM5 book
2. Blue Book link
3. Green book (as an extra step to confirm your Dx)
