This clinical workshop is a critical continuing education opportunity for all clinicians to stay abreast of contemporary progress in psychodiagnostics. The DSM-5 brought substantive advancements in the gestalt, interprofessional process, and documentation around psychodiagnosing. Now, DSM-5-TR is an important but discerning continuation of the art and science of diagnosing further grounded in and developed by social determinants of health, progressive changes in language and phrasing, advancing the centering of dynamic culture considerations in formulation, transformations in diagnostic criterion and coding, and by the addition of three critical diagnoses. History, politics, and the gestalt of the age of DSM-5-TR will be crosswalked; from there, the essential updates to new diagnoses will be reviewed, along with a multitude of criterion changes and the dozens (upon dozens) of coding changes aligned with ICD-11.
This course is designed for mental health practitioners who are interested in an introduction to and becoming up-to-date with the new diagnoses, diagnostic criteria changes, text revisions, and coding alterations featured in the DSM-5-TR.
After completing this course, the reader will be able to do the following:
- Describe the philosophy, fundamental changes, and key progress from the (DSM-IV-TR to) DSM-5 to DSM-5-TR;
- Understand and crosswalk substantive diagnostic criteria changes, text revisions, and coding alterations between the DSM-5 and -5-TR for major mental illnesses and common mental health conditions; and,
- Identify critical cultural considerations for psychodiagnosing that can inform more responsive and competent assessments and treatment planning.
