Workshop Description:

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Text Revision Edition (DSM-V TR) was released in March 2023. The DSM-V TR provides clinicians with diagnostic criteria useful for diagnosing patients with various mental, learning, eating, and substance use disorders. This training focuses on major changes from the DSM-V to the DSM-V TR. We will also cover issues related to cultural competence and ethics as it relates to diagnosing consumers with mental and substance use disorders.


Workshop Goals and Objectives:


1. Identify key updates on diagnostic changes including new disorders, criteria, language considerations and subtypes, specifiers


2. Identify medications used to treat clients with various mental and substance use disorders.


3. Implement an approach to diagnosing and treatment consumers that aligns with the NASW Code of Ethics and acknowledges cultural diversity.
