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:

  1. Understand changes related to the basic organization structure of the DSM-5
  2. Identify and describe at least three major diagnostic changes from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5
  3. Begin to discuss the future of the DSM and how new neuroscience findings will be integrated
