ICD-11 for OCD at WHO, Geneva

I am honoured to be invited to the World Health Organisation in Geneva. Our group’s task is revise the criteria for diagnosing Obsessive Compulsive and related disorders for the 11th revision of International Classification of Diseases (ICD) due in 2014. Sounds boring but it is important! We are reminded that even US Government recognizes the ICD rather than DSM manual. I would especially like to sort out the diagnosis of body dysmorphic disorder in ICD11 as this is a bit of a mess in the current version.
