Making an Accurate Diagnosis Using the DSM-5-TR
About the Workshop

This three hour course reviews the evolution of the DSM and its use in applying a standardized classification system to the set of symptoms each client presents. The role of culture, context and continued integrated treatment will be explored as it pertains to the evaluator as well as the evaluated. Particular attention will be given to diagnoses commonly seen in community mental healthcare. The differences between the DSM-5 and DSM-5-TR will be outlined and illustrated through case vignettes, relevant educational videos and diagnostic practice.
