Join us for a Live Webinar on May 5, 2023 from 1-2:30 pm EDT
In 2022, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released the ‘Text Revision’ for The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5th Edition (DSM-5-TR; APA, 2022). Representing the first revision since DSM-5 was published in 2013, DSM-5-TR contains updates to underlying research on current concepts of mental disorder as well as introduction of new diagnostic terms and related codes. DSM-5-TR also expands on culture-related diagnostic considerations.
In this training, Dr. Buckles will help participants understand how certain changes contained within DSM-5-TR may affect clinical considerations for assessment and diagnosis. While the changes in some terminology (including those addressing sex and gender) will be addressed, this training will also cover the addition of prolonged grief disorder (formerly referred to as persistent complex bereavement disorder) as a newly added diagnosis and the expansion of coding to include suicidal and nonsuicidal self-injury. Particular attention will be paid to the intent of the authors and contributors to provide a “comprehensive review of the impact of racism and discrimination on the diagnosis and manifestations of mental disorders” (APA, 2022). In addition, Dr. Buckles will review aspects of ethical and careful application of the DSM methodology based on his 20+ years teaching and practicing individual assessment.
Upon completion of this training, behavioral health clinicians will be able to:
- Explain the general process and intent of the creation of DSM-5-TR
- List the general changes to an array of diagnostic categories and coding considerations
- Explain specifically the addition of and related concerns regarding prolonged grief disorder
- Discuss recent literature on these topics
- Illustrate ways to consider the ethical and responsible application of DSM-5-TR processes
Schedule (listed in Eastern Daylight Time):
- 1:00-1:35 pm presentation
- 1:35-1:45 pm Q&A
- 1:45-2:20 pm presentation
- 2:20-2:30 pm Q&A
