Updates to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders V—often called the “psychiatric bible”—will be released next year with new definitions affecting health insurance, services and much more for those diagnosed with mental health disorders. Among the proposed changes receiving the most attention is the removal of Asperger's syndrome from the list of autism spectrum disorders.
In this interview for “Eight Forty-Eight,” on National Public Radio affiliate WBEZ 91.5 FM in Chicago, Steven Migalski. Psy.D., Adler School Core Faculty in Clinical Psychology and a clinical psychologist, says many of his patients with Asperger’s feel disenfranchised. As a clinician, he feels it’s his responsibility to show compassion and respect while explaining how the changes will affect their day-to-day lives.
