The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) released in May 2013 includes new disorders, and revised criteria for existing mental disorders. This workshop benefits clinicians who diagnose and treat mental illness in all settings, and assists in transitioning from the DSM-IV to the DSM-5. Highlighted changes include the reorganization of the chapters, creation of new diagnoses and categories, consolidation and deletion of diagnoses, and the deletion of the multiaxial diagnosis with changes that include an emphasis on assessment measures.
