Abstract

This article provides a commentary on the proposed Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)-5 changes with respect to diagnosing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in diverse cultural groups in clinical and forensic settings. PTSD is the most common diagnosis in personal injury litigants (Koch et al. 2006). By reviewing the symptoms that have been changed in the DSM-5 draft for PTSD in terms of ethnoracial and minority-cultural factors, this article highlights the lack of data needed in the area and that the DSM project should pay more attention to such factors.
