DSM 5: What's New and Different

Presented by Rachel Michaelsen, LCSW

The DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition) has many significant differences from previous editions, including new diagnoses, changes to previous diagnoses, and a new classification system.  In this course, participants will learn the changes to most of the chapters in the manual, changes to familiar diagnoses and they will learn about several new diagnoses.

This course is designed to help participants:

       Learn and understand the new structure and organization of the DSM-5

       Learn diagnosis new to the DSM-5

       Identify the diagnoses that are no longer in use

       Identify major changes to the DSM-IV diagnoses
