Therapy Changes Paper Sheds New Light on Diagnosis, Treatment of Grief and Depression

The paper also addresses important changes regarding bereavement and major depression to the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-5 manual, which serves as a universal authority for the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders.
