Controversy … change … and one of the most anticipated events in mental health history is here. The DSM-5 (a registered trademark of the American Psychiatric Association) is going to change the way you view, diagnose and treat mental illness.
For the first time ever, the DSM depends on and incorporates evidence from the neurosciences, genetic studies, twins studies, and overall areas of research that had been largely ignored in previous editions of the DSM. One of the biggest changes in the new edition is a dramatically fresh approach to diagnostics. The new DSM is intended to better fit with the International Classification of diseases (ICD-10) – requiring a new paradigm and new diagnostic skills. After years of anticipation the DSM 5® will debut in late May 2013 and this seminar will cover the latest DSM-5® information. Understand the dramatic changes and the implications for all practitioners.
