DSM-5 Overview and Update:
A Basic Summary for Mental Health Professionals
"The DSM-5 is designed to be an evidence-based manual that is useful to clinicians in helping them accurately diagnose mental disorders."
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) launched the new DSM-5 on May 18, 2013 at its annual meeting in San Francisco, California after many years of field trials, research, and public and professional commentary.
There have been many significant changes in this new edition of the DSM and knowing what they are is an important aspect of staying current in the field. The focus of this training is to introduce these changes to mental health professionals and graduate students who already have an understanding of the basics of psychiatric assessment and diagnosis.
The training is designed to be brief and highly informational and will cover the following content areas:
- General Changes in the New Edition
- Lost Diagnostic Categories
- New Diagnostic Categories
- New Specific Diagnoses
- Important Name Changes
- Reclassifications of Diagnoses
- Changes in Coding
- Implementation Recommendations
- New Multicultural Assessments
- New Diagnostic Assessments
Please note that the class is designed for graduate and post-graduate level mental health professionals who have already been exposed to previous editions of the DSM and want to learn more about the specific changes with the new edition and how those changes will impact them. This is not a class on what the DSM is or how to use it in clinical practice.
Registration for this class is limited for each section and early registration is highly recommended in order to reserve your place.
