Join us for a special session to learn about the newly published DSM-5 and the impact of new diagnostic guidelines on clinical practice and academic research. This special session is open to students, residents, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff. It provides a wonderful opportunity to learn more about changes in the organizational structure of the DSM and examples of significant diagnostic changes outlined in the manual.
Learning Objectives: After attending this session, learners will be able to:
- Understand changes related to the basic organization structure of the DSM-5
- Identify and describe at least three major diagnostic changes from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5
- Begin to discuss the future of the DSM and how new neuroscience findings will be integrated
