WORKSHOP OUTCOMES & OVERVIEW

This workshop is an interactive introduction to the DSM. It provides an historical perspective, examines ethical considerations, and outlines why a knowledge of the document is important for all social workers. The distinctions between symptoms, episodes and disorders are defined; criteria sets of commonly diagnosed disorders are explored; and participants are instructed in the structure of the DSM and how to most effectively use it.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Medical Model and Insurance Companies
  • Social Work Ethical Considerations when diagnosis
  • Symptoms, Episodes, and Disorders
  • Structure of the DSM
  • Commonly Diagnosed Disorders

At the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Understand how the DSM fits in history & its current importance for social workers in day-to-day practice.
  • Be familiar enough with the structure and organization of DSM to be able to utilize it as a resource.
  • Understand the methodology of criteria sets.
  • Develop a familiarity with some of the most common diagnoses and know how to use those criteria sets to match symptoms gathered during the client assessment process.
