Over 100 authors contributed to DSM-5 Clinical Cases. Most are psychiatrists, but the group also includes professionals from the fields of psychology, social work, nursing, and sociology. Hardly anyone declined the invitation to write for this book, and so I was unable to ask many potential contributors—including several on my own hallway—who would certainly have turned in terrific work. Some of the book’s authors had participated in the creation of DSM-5, but most had not, and a few had published articles skeptical of early DSM-5 drafts. All of the authors worked within significant length and topic restrictions, and they wrote their initial drafts before the DSM-5 text was complete. Despite their own full schedules, they responded professionally to waves of e-mailed edits, reminders, and questions, often contributing much-appreciated thoughts and criticisms. Their flexibility, expertise, and efforts are the backbone of this book.
