In this discussion, you will be evaluating the contributions of psychological research in the context of the DSM-5 as it is used in practice. â€Conditions for Further Study†(Section III of the DSM-5) and â€An Overview of the DSM-5: Changes, Controversy, and Implications for Psychiatric Nursing†(An Overview of the DSM-5: Changes, Controversy, and Implications for Psychiatric Nursing) are good places to start.

Then, in your post, make sure to address the following points:

Name a disorder from the DSM-5 section titled “Conditions for Further Study” that has been identified as requiring significant additional research and study (Section III of the DSM-5). Create a research question that is relevant to the disorder that you have chosen.
Based on one of the research methods presented in your textbook, briefly outline a research method that could be used to investigate the disorder.
