DSM-IV-TR Diagnostic Codes:

V61.9 Relational Problem Related to a Mental Disorder or General Medical Condition

V61.20 Parent-Child Relational Problem

V61.10 Partner Relational Problem

V61.8 Sibling Relational Problem

V61.81 Relational Problem Not Otherwise Specified

Parent/Child Relational Problems: • Difficulty with appropriate discipline in the home • Worry about child’s truancy or other academic problems. Overprotection of the child, limiting the child’s capacity to grow. • Suspicion or knowledge of a child’s drug or alcohol use. • Unresolved parental conflict (i.e.: the constant devaluing of one parent by the other) in divorced or estranged families resulting in parental alienation syndrome.

The above diagnostic codes will be used when the focus of clinical attention is a relational problem, which includes patterns of interaction between or among members of a relational unit that are associated with clinically significant impairment in functioning, or symptoms among one or more members of the relational unit, or impairment in the functioning of the relational unit itself (DSM-IV-TR). The above codes should be used as the primary diagnosis and participants can be effectively treated using brief, problem-solving therapy.
