What's new, What's changed, and What’s Retired

It's true. There's a new DSM in town as of May 2013 and it is here to stay. The fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) contains crucial changes in both organizational structure and diagnostic criteria. Mastery of the DSM-5 is essential for all mental health practitioners as we assess, diagnose, and treat our clients. In addition, many insurance companies require correct use of DSM diagnostic criteria for reimbursement of services.

Don’t get left behind. This one-day workshop is designed to help you to pinpoint the new features of DSM-5, with emphasis on adult conditions. Dr. Kenneth Carter, will teach you to take this information and apply the changes between DSM-IV and DSM-5 correctly and comprehend what's new, what's changed, and what conditions are no longer listed to better serve your practice and your clients.
