DSM-5 Library

DSM-5 Library is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. DSM-5 is used by health professionals, social workers, and forensic and legal specialists to diagnose and classify mental disorders, and is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health.

The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.


PsychiatryOnline is a powerful web-based portal that features DSM-5—the most widely used psychiatric reference in the world—and the American Journal of Psychiatry as the cornerstones of an unsurpassed collection of psychiatric references from American Psychiatric Publishing, the most trusted and respected name in psychiatric publishing.

This comprehensive collection covers diagnosis and differential diagnosis, case vignettes to bring abstract concepts to life, multidisciplinary treatment guidelines, the latest research—all within a single search and navigation interface that integrates journals and books.

Psychotherapy Library

The Psychotherapy Library is a robust list of curated psychotherapy titles. This collection covers a multitude of topics including cognitive behavior therapy, psychoanalysis, mentalizing, and more—all within a single search and navigation interface that integrates journals and books.
