The in-text citation for the DSM would look like this:

(American Psychiatric Association, 2013)

If you're citing only a certain entry, you might include the page number(s):

(American Psychiatric Association, 2013, pp. 190-195)

In that case, the reference (at the end) would include the section name and page range as well, for example:

American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Separation Anxiety Disorder. In Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders: DSM-5 (5th ed., pp. 190-195). Washington, D.C.: American Psychiatric Association.

I hope that helps.  Please write back if you have any further questions.
