The new DSM 5 is a much-anticipated publication, and clinicians will need to prepare themselves for major changes in the DSM manual and different diagnostic categories. This two-part course will address the some of the major changes that have been made to the DSM 5 regarding adult mental disorders. From schizophrenia to personality disorders, the transition from the DSM IV to the DSM 5 can be complex and confusing. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss how these changes may impact assessment and interventions. Participants will try out using the DSM 5 with new case scenarios.
