The Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released in May 2013.
With this release comes new diagnosis and changes to the way some
mental illnesses are viewed. While there has been controversy around
some changes, whether in agreement with the changes or not, knowledge of
the DSM-5 is still important for professionals working with mental
health. While not an exhaustive review, or an instruction on
psychological diagnosis, participants will learn about the more
significant and controversial changes to the DSM. This workshop is
intended for doctors, psychologists, social workers, senior clinicians
and professionals working in the field of mental health. For those with
minimal mental health experience, please attend CTRI's introductory
Understanding Mental Illness workshop.
Please note that due to copyright law, training material for this
workshop is limited to the use of Power Point slides. If you have a copy
of the DSM-5 we encourage you to bring it along. You can order a copy
of the DSM-5 through the American Psychiatry Association.
