Your Voice

By Peter Frizzell
I am an Assistant Professor of psychiatry at ETSU in charge of half of our adult inpatient service.

There is no way I could lug around a DSM but with this I can carry around an entire shelf of books in my pocket. While the diagnostic criteria of the most common disorders are well known, it's invalualuable for the lesser seen ones. It's certainly more satisfying than the ole professor's dodge of saying "Why don't you look that up and give us a report on that in the morning". There is nothing more educational than teaching about a patient in real time just after seeing him or her.
