Understanding the DSM-5
General Themes and Criteria for the New Diagnostics
 
This seminar will explore the areas of change being implemented in the DSM-5 and how these changes reflect the new general direction of thinking regarding mental health diagnosis and treatment. All mental health professionals will be required to transition to diagnosing and treating people under the criteria of the DSM-5. This seminar will seek to help those attending to understand both the research and reasoning behind the diagnostic changes along with the specific changes themselves, so that practitioners might be able to implement the new standards for diagnosis and practice effectively.
 
Seminar Learning Objectives
  1. To explore the general themes of the DSM changes and how they relate to the growing body of evidence from mental health research
  2. To discuss the specific changes occurring in the DSM-5 regarding particular diagnoses and diagnostic criteria
  3. To look at some of the practical ways that the new DSM will change mental health practice and how mental health issues are conceptualized and addressed.
