DSM 5: Overview, Consideration, and Treatment Implications
The purpose of this workshop is to present broad-based changes to the latest edition the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5. A walk-through review of the recently published manual will introduce the workshop attendees to specific changes across commonly used diagnostic categories and to then consider the impact of these changes to clinical practice. A more focused review will be spent on considering changes to the Multiaxial System, Autism Spectrum, PTSD, and Personality Disorders. The workshop will include opportunities for small group discussions and activities to apply diagnostic changes to case studies related to Autism Spectrum, PTSD, and Personality Disorders.
Particpants who complete this training will receive 6.0 hours of continuing education units. Certificates will be provided at the end of the training.
