Make a Smooth Transition from IV to 5 Without
Pulling Your Hair Out
It's true. There's a new DSM, May 2013, and it is here to stay. The fifth
edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical
Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) contains crucial changes in both
organizational structure and diagnostic criteria. Mastery of the DSM-5 is
essential for all mental health practitioners as we assess, diagnose, and treat
our clients. In addition, many insurance companies require correct use of DSM
diagnostic criteria for reimbursement of services.
Don't get left behind. This one-day workshop is designed to help you to pinpoint
the new features of DSM-5, with emphasis on adult conditions. Dr. Kenneth Carter
will teach you to take this information and apply the changes between DSM-IV and
DSM-5 correctly, and comprehend what's new, what's changed, and what conditions
are no longer listed to better serve your practice and your clients.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Identify conditions that have been added to
the DSM and conditions that are no longer listed
- Distinguish the new features of the DSM-5,
including the organizational structure
- Apply DSM-5 diagnostic criteria accurately for
a number of disorders
- Discuss the new criteria for schizophrenia,
substance use, and addictive disorders
- Examine the new approach to personality
- Gain a better understanding of the rationale
behind the development process
- Evaluate case studies through an open case
discussion and differentiate between cases that might be diagnosed differently
under DSM-IV and DSM-5
- Outline valuable DSM-5 resources to increase
