A triaxial system (Axis I--Clinical diagnoses, Axis II--Disabilities, Axis III--Contextual factors) is intended for use in clinical, educational and research activities. It aims to ensure that disabilities and factors relevant to the management of a mentally ill patient's condition are systematically recorded. It has been prepared and trialed by an international team of experts and has proven easy to use, helpful and applicable to a wide range of cultures and settings. This comprehensive manual provides information on the development of the ICD-10 multiaxial system and describes its structure and use. It details ICD-10 categories for each axis of the system as well as instruments and instructions for their application. The instruments include the ICD-10 multiaxial diagnostic formulation form, WHO short disability assessment schedule (SHO DAS-S) and Axis III checklist.

Industry Reviews

"This book succeeds as a quick and easy introduction to the ICD-10 multiaxial system. Assessment and rating of disability and contextual factors are particularly helpful and straightforward. However, no attempt is made to compare and contrast the ICD-10 with the DSM-IV, and American psychiatrists will find much to quibble about. Still, no one will disagree with the need for a classification system that allows us to communicate more easily with our international colleaques." Doody's Journal and Doody's Quarterly
