It’s offical!! Today I finally got my hands on my very own copy of DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
As some of you know, I’m currently undergoing a degree in Psychological Sciences at university, and this book will heavily assist me in educating and familiarising myself with mental disorders to further advance my psychiatric career. There is a reason why they call this book the ‘Psychologists Bible’, DSM-5 is used as the authoritative guide in the diagnosis of mental disorders, in turn, it holds every single mental disorder discovered to date. It’s fair to say I have spent the better half of the day with my head in this book absolutely fascinated. Well worth the investment and I know this book will serve me well both now and in the future.
I have been on break for the last 12 weeks from uni, and I commence again on Monday. As much as the break was well needed, I’m itching to get back into it! Again, I’m still absolutely blown away at being offered a place in this degree. Furthermore, you will see a lot more posts in relation to psychology and my life, as well as my writing/stories (which, I may add as a side note, having a career/education in psychology and being a writer marry perfectly).
Thanks for being so awesome!
