The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-5-TR), was released on March 22, 2022. It is being billed as the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers. DSM-5-TR includes the fully revised text and references, updated diagnostic criteria and ICD-10-CM codes since DSM-5 was published in 2013. It features a new disorder, Prolonged Grief Disorder, as well as codes for suicidal behavior available to all clinicians of any discipline without the requirement of any other diagnosis. In this workshop, Dr. Haarman will highlight the changes and revisions for each disorder with updated sections on associated features, prevalence, development and course, risk and prognostic factors, culture, diagnostic markers, suicide, differential diagnosis, and more. New diagnostic categories, including Suicidal Behavior Disorder, Nonsuicidal Self-Injury, and Prolonged Grief Disorder will be reviewed in detail. This workshop is intended for all mental health and substance abuse professionals who routinely assess, diagnose, and treat individuals with psychiatric or psychological disorders.

Unlike our other courses, this one is presented in audio only.
