    YOU ARE SICK! Psychiatry stretching out its claws...

    Hypersexual Disorder: Diagnostic Criteria For DSM-5 Tested In New Study

    Posted: 10/23/2012 1:16 pm EDT


    Sex addiction may soon be an official clinical diagnosis in the forthcoming Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and a new study tests the reliability of the proposed criteria for diagnosis. The findings of the study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, are likely to influence whether hypersexual disorder officially makes it into the next edition of the "psychiatric bible."

    Overall, the diagnostic criteria proposed by the DSM-5 Work Group on Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders demonstrated "high reliability and validity when applied to patients in a clinical setting among a group of raters with modest training on assessing HD [hypersexual disorder]," the University of California, Los Angeles, researchers wrote in the study.

    "The results lead us to believe that the proposed criteria tend not to identify patients who donít have problems with their sexual behavior," study researcher Rory Reid, assistant professor of psychiatry at the UCLA Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Human Behavior, said in a statement. "This is a significant finding since many had expressed concerns that the proposal would falsely classify individuals."

    Researchers conducted the study on 207 people who are already patients at mental health clinics because of psychiatric issues, sexual behavior or substance abuse problems. Of those people, researchers found that the criteria proposed to be included in the DSM-5 was able to correctly diagnose the condition in 93 percent of the people when screened for hypersexual disorder.

    Many of the people who fit the diagnostic criteria participated in behaviors like masturbation, cybersex, consensual sex and excessive pornography, as well as sex with sex workers, sex with anonymous partners, multiple affairs and having 15 sex partners, on average, over the past year.

    According to the proposed criteria, in order for people to be diagnosed with hypersexual disorder, they must have a period of six or more months where they have constant behaviors, urges or fantasies related to sex. These sexual behaviors and urges must not be related to some other condition -- mental or otherwise -- or substance abuse. In addition, the proposed criteria states that there has to be a pattern of the person using sex as a response to depression, stress or other negative moods or states, the researchers said.And "as with many other mental health disorders, there must also be evidence of personal distress caused by the sexual behaviors that interfere with relationships, work, or other important aspects of life," Reid added in the statement.

    For example, researchers found that people who ended up meeting the diagnostic criteria for hypersexual disorder experienced many negative side effects of their sexual behaviors. Specifically, 17 percent said that they'd experienced job loss, 28 percent said they'd gotten an STI, 39 percent said they've experienced the end of a relationship and 78 percent said that healthy sex had been interfered with by their behavior.

    Researchers also found that many of those who fit the diagnostic criteria for hypersexual disorder had a sense that something was out of the ordinary at the young age. More than half were aware they had a problem before they even reached age 18, while nearly a third knew it was a problem during young adulthood.

    These low life-forms have to keep a steady stream of disorders coming to justify their useless parasitic existence and the steady hypersonic growth of the drugs industry.

    The paranoid sheeple of course love any new attention they may get.

    ^ More or less, yeah, though there are still some psychiatrists who aren't just glorified sales reps for the pharmaceutical industry.

    ^^There are a precious few who still believe, to put it that way, in what they do. Sadly, because they have to do it for a living they have to do the conveyor-belt/categorise dance. Which makes what they're trying pretty much useless, outside of the very short-term feel-slighty-better factor which a barman can supply at a lot less cost.

    What really gets me though is the invention of conditions to drive revenue for them and the drug industry. Depression is a shining case in point.


    Most would imagine 'depression' was defined to describe a condition then drugs were developed for it. Not so, by a long shot. The drugs industry came up with a drug they didn't really know what to do with, an addictive drug on top of it, and then sought to define a market. The rest is a legendary success story for them and a horrendous disaster for the world.

    Disgusting, to say the least.

    The Danger of Hypersexual Disorder

    Hypersexual disorder - turning male sexuality into a disease.
    Published on May 1, 2012 by David J. Ley, Ph.D. in Women Who Stray

    http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/...exual-disorder

    excerpts
    Dr. Martin Kafka, psychiatrist and lead author of the hypersexual disorder proposal, originally proposed to set a numeric limit on sexuality, identifying that an orgasm a day for three months was a defining threshold of "too much sex." Unfortunately, as I argue in Myth, this would potentially pathologize as much as 40 percent of the male population at one time or another.

    One study of alleged sex addicts found that the sex addicts had as much sex as non-sex addicts wanted to have, but couldn't or didn't. Get that?

    The level of desire is thus normal, but what is now seen as a disease is the degree to which a man fulfills that desire, or the degree of their success at picking up women?

    Studies of sex addiction and hypersexuality reveal that 85-95 percent of them are male. Usually white men in upper income tax brackets. Why are we creating a disorder that pathologizes excessive male sexuality? What is that anyway?

    as it looks, treatment will be anti-depressants... who would have thought that...

    but the pharma industry is probably already greasing the pill-press for something new...

    the schizos and fibromalogists will be soon gone, when bacterial, viral and parasital infections are treated properly... panic sets already in, it seems... they will expand their empire until really the last citizen in the world is addicted to the one or other psycho-pill...

    you agree, that people with "urges or fantasies related to sex" for more than six month and occasional bad mood should be diagnosed with a psychiatric condition and treated with anti-depressants, ENT?

    You see my friend, it's these rare little posts of yours that are not scrape/rewrite jobbies that reveal all. Your Achilles heel.

    DSM V: Sex addiction off the table - binge eating and hoarding in

    Psychiatry Gets Revised Diagnostic Manual

    One of the biggest changes: 'autistic disorder' will now be known as 'autism spectrum disorder'

    One of the biggest changes: 'autistic disorder' will now be known as 'autism spectrum disorder.'




    MONDAY, Dec. 3 (HealthDay News) -- The long-awaited revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) has been approved, bringing with it a series of revisions, additions and subtractions to the tome that is considered the Bible of psychiatry.

    The revision, announced Saturday, has been more than a decade in the making and included input from more than 1,500 experts in all walks of medicine in 39 countries.

    The changes to the DSM "will have some impact because there are some substantial changes in diagnostic criteria," said Dr. Bryan Bruno, acting chair of psychiatry at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "The implications [will relate] not only to insurance coverage but to what we consider psychopathology. That is very much influenced by what the DSM says," he added.

    The fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-4) has been in use since 1994. The new DSM-5 will be available in its entirety in the spring of 2013, according to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), which publishes the volume.

    "We have produced a manual that best represents the current science and will be useful to clinicians and the patients they serve," APA president Dr. Dilip Jeste said in a statement from the association.

    Although the new manual will include roughly the same number of disorders as the one it is replacing, a number of changes in content are significant.
    One of the biggest revisions is a change in nomenclature for "autistic disorder," which will now be known as "autism spectrum disorder." That means Asperger's syndrome, a less debilitating form of autism, will be folded into the larger category and no longer have its own designation.
    This change was met with some concern.

    "Although there is a strong scientific rationale for these changes in the diagnostic criteria, we are concerned about the impact of the new DSM-5 criteria when they are used in real-world settings," said Geraldine Dawson, chief science officer of Autism Speaks, adding that the trials on the new criteria were based on a relatively small number of children.

    "It is crucial that we monitor how the DSM-5 impacts diagnosis and access to services in the real world," she continued. "We want to make sure that no one is excluded from obtaining a diagnosis and accessing services who needs them."

    Bruno said it was difficult to predict what sort of impact the inclusion of Asperger's within autism spectrum disorder would have on insurance coverage and access to services. Many clinicians already consider Asperger's part of the autism spectrum, he noted.
    Another expert agreed.
    Dr. Andrew Adesman, chief of developmental and behavioral pediatrics at the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York in New Hyde Park, said the new DSM is "codifying or formalizing what experts have been doing informally for years."
    This is true not only for the term "autism spectrum disorder," which is already in wide use, but also for the age cutoff for symptoms of individuals with the inattentive form of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The new DSM extends the age for symptom manifestation to 14, said Adesman.
    Also in the new DSM-5, binge-eating disorder has been bumped up to a bona fide medical condition from one that simply needed "further study." With a formal code in hand, mental-health practitioners may now be able to get insurance reimbursement for treatment efforts.

    Children may also now receive a diagnosis of "disruptive mood dysregulation disorder," a condition new to the DSM-5, which is characterized by "persistent irritability and frequent episodes of behavior outbursts three or more times a week for more than a year."
    Although the new diagnosis is intended to cut down on the number of children labeled with bipolar disorder, some say it simply medicalizes temper tantrums.
    Bruno stressed, however, that the new disorder refers only to particularly severe tantrums that occur frequently. "This is much more extreme than a tantrum," he explained. "There are definitely those kids where the tantrums and irritability are very chronic and very severe. A lot of kids who were captured by a bipolar diagnosis may be captured by this."

    Both excoriation (skin-picking) disorder and hoarding disorder are new to the DSM-5 and will appear in the chapter on "obsessive-compulsive and related disorders."

    In another controversial change, certain people who are experiencing grief can now be diagnosed as having depression, an acknowledgment that "bereavement is a severe psychosocial stressor that can precipitate a major depressive episode," according to a news release issued by the APA.
    Bruno believes that there will likely still be distinctions between "normal" grief and grief that is labeled depression.

    In other changes, "gender identity disorder" is now "gender dysphoria," and dyslexia was not dropped from the manual, as some had feared might happen. Also, excessive "Internet gaming" now belongs to the category of conditions requiring "further research."

    And there was one notable condition not added to the DSM-5: "hypersexual disorder," which many in the lay public refer to as sex addiction.
    "The non-inclusion of sex addiction was not particularly surprising," Bruno said, because usually this behavior occurs as a symptom of other disorders, such as personality disorders, and is not something that psychiatrists commonly treat.
    "We rarely see this as an entity in and of itself," Bruno said.

    One Binge eating a week ? - Your a case for the psychiatry...

    5) Excessive eating 12 times in 3 months is no longer just a manifestation of gluttony and the easy availability of really great tasting food. DSM-5 has instead turned it into a psychiatric illness called Binge Eating Disorder.

    OOOOoohhh....Parents supposed to bear two tantrums a week...

    Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder will be included in DSM-5 to diagnose children who exhibit persistent irritability and frequent episodes of behavior outbursts three or more times a week for more than a year. The diagnosis is intended to address concerns about potential over-diagnosis and overtreatment of bipolar disorder in children.
