Clearly, it isn't just "biblical counseling movement" folks who see problems w/ DSM.

Criticism of the DSM began to coalesce in the 1990s, with Stuart Kirk and Herb Kutchins's "The Selling of DSM" (1992) and "Making Us Crazy" (1997), as well as Paula Caplan's "They Say You're Crazy" (1996). Now, Gary Greenberg, a psychotherapist and the author of "Manufacturing Depression" (2010), and Allen Frances, a psychiatrist who was task-force chair of the revision of the fourth DSM, have joined the chorus of critics.
