DSM-5 Overview

The release of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5™) in May 2013 by the American Psychiatric Association was one of the most anticipated events in the mental health field. Although many elements from the previous version of the diagnostic manual (DSM-IV-TR™) remained intact, there were significant changes; most prominently the new manual deleted the previous multi-axial system of generating a psychiatric diagnosis. The changes in the new manual were designed to take into account decades of scientific and clinical findings. Designed for entry- to advanced- level mental healthcare staff and allied professionals, the goal of this course is to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the DSM-5. You will learn about the use of a non-axial system, new dimensional assessments, new terminology used throughout the DSM-5, with increased cultural considerations, as well as some of the major criticisms of the revised manual. Most importantly, this course also provides you with important information on the specific diagnostic categories that are changes in the lexicon of clinical diagnostics in the DSM-5. With the aid of interactive exercises, you will have the tools you need to effectively use the DSM-5 to assist you in diagnosing psychological disorders, as well as treatment planning. Since it has been 3 years since the newest version of the manual was published, this course is not designed to simply compare the older and newer versions of the DSM. Rather it is designed to introduce the clinician to the DSM’s revised conceptualization of mental disorders from a diagnostician’s perspective.
