Expanded Description

May 2013 marked the release of the revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5): an event which both introduces and represents changes in the fields of medicine, psychology, marriage and family therapy, and clinical social work.  These much-debated revisions range from minor adjustments to significant shifts in how professionals think about and are required to assess domains of mental health and wellbeing. This workshop will provide information but will also apply concepts from the developmental clinical lens to help professionals deconstruct, navigate, and ultimately feel confident using the DSM-5.

This session is an expanded version of the workshop What We Already Know, What We Need To Know, and How It All Fits Together: A Developmentally Based Discussion Of The New DSM-5 hosted in August, 2103. Includes  added case vignette work and discussion.

Level: Intermediate
