Understanding the DSM-5: Problems and Prospects in the Diagnostic Revisions
Start Date: 5/19/2014Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 5/19/2014End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) has undergone substantial revisions across its sixty years of evolution. The latest version (DSM-5) continues this tradition of substantial changes. The discontinuation of the multi-axial system, the addition and deletion of specific disorders, the regrouping and reclassification of familiar disorders, and significant changes in the names, nature, and criteria associated with various disorders all mark the DSM-5 as a substantial - and controversial - revision of the diagnostic system. This workshop provides a detailed overview of the primary changes and rationales associated with those revisions. Participants will gain experience utilizing several novel inclusions in the DSM-5 - including the new cross-cutting diagnostic dimensions and the new Personality Disorders assessment, the PID-5.

Presenter: Dr. Greg Neimeyer, Professor of Psychology, University of Florida, Director, Office of Continuing Education in Psychology, American Psychological Association
