The remarkably controversial development of DSM-V took another major turn with the revelation that two proposed changes are now being dropped (click here to read a summary). Both Attenuated Psychosis Syndrome and Mixed Anxiety Depressive Disorder have been removed from consideration as new diagnoses.
