To encourage additional study, the AMA says is will submit the full report and recommendations to the American Psychiatric Association (Arlington, Va.) and other appropriate medical specialty societies for review and consideration in conjunction with the upcoming revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
