Full Event Description

​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.

Training material 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.
