DSM-5 Online Workshop
January 25, 2014 9-11:30 am (PST)
|The latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was officially launched in May 2013. This workshop will review the historical development, such as its relationship with the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), and the theoretical changes of the DSM-5, such as eliminating the multi-axial format, adding and removing different mental disorders, and introducing a revised diagnostic perspective. The workshop will focus on the changes in classification of some of the most frequently seen mental disorders in clinical practice. We will also review some of the controversies of these changes and the future of this valuable manual.
Fee for this workshop is $50.
