About this Event

Good for 2 Diagnosis CEUs (for KS LSCSWs) and 2 Suicide CEUs (for MO LCSWs).

We've come a long way since the days of the 1950s original DSM, both in purpose and clinical understanding of mental illness diagnoses and symptomology. Mental health concerns are now some of the most disabling health conditions in our urban and industrialized world and it's critical that clinicians understand the purpose, scope, and power that the DSM 5 has in the diagnostic world and whether it's still relevant. Come get a practical review of the major mental health diagnoses such as Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Trauma based disorders, Bipolar Disorders, Schizophrenia, and other disorders related to working with older adults such as grief and dementia. Practical tips on how to assess and refer out for services in our changing economic and non-profit climate will also be reviewed.
