Making the Transition: From DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5; Wednesday, April 1st, 2015, 9:00am – 4:00pm

With fourteen years in the making, and at a cost of over 25 million dollars, the DSM-5® replaces the DSMIV®TR as the standard diagnostic manual for psychiatric disorders in the United States. Differences between the two manuals are substantial and include broad-stroke revisions, such as the elimination of the five axes system, and more subtle changes, as well as the inclusion of new diagnoses and elimination or reconfiguration of others.

This day-long training will provide clinicians with an overview of the DSM-5® that highlights significant changes in all of the diagnostic categories. To provide participants with a “hands on” practicum, there will be multiple opportunities to formulate DSM-5® diagnoses through the use of case studies. Implications related to billing and treatment planning will also be reviewed and discussed.
