Dr. Raskin has been appointed to the Society of Humanistic Psychology’s DSM-5 Open Letter Committee. This committee’s Open Letter to DSM-5 outlines concerns over proposed changes to the forthcoming version of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The open letter, along with an accompanying petition, has generated a great deal of attention since being posted online in late October. More than 7225 people have signed the petition at the time of this post.
The petition is available at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dsm5/.
