The authors reviewed Appendix C of DSM-III-R, Glossary of Technical Terms, for its references to religion. Religion was referred to more frequently in this glossary than it is in psychiatric research. The authors conclude that although the Glossary uses religion in constructive or cautionary reminders, the high rate of illustrative case examples of psychopathology that involve religion in the Glossary indicates cultural insensitivity in interpreting religion.
