With the release of the DSM-5, mental health professionals need information about changes in the new manual. Dr. K. Dayle Jones will provide an overview of the DSM-5, including its development process, changes to the organizational structure, major revisions to existing diagnoses, and the addition of new disorders.

“The impact of the DSM-5 revisions will ripple throughout mental health care, from diagnosis to treatment to overall mental health services,” said Jones. “These changes will affect the way professionals, and other stakeholders, define normal and abnormal when it comes to mental health.”

Participants will also be informed about the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), its designation as HIPAA’s official code book for diagnosing mental disorders, and its relationship to DSM-5, as well as overall implications for practice. This workshop is designed for professionals and advanced graduate students already familiar with DSM-IV-TR and diagnostic practices. Original webcast date: June 14, 2013.
