DSM-5 and ICD Trainings

The DSM-5 is now available, and the federal government has recently mandated the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) beginning in 2014. 

If you are the member of an organization, agency or association, and would like to offer a professional development workshop on the DSM-5 or ICD in your area, half- (4 hours or less) and full-day (5 hours or more) workshops are available at this time. Presenters can be scheduled to accommodate the dates and locations of your agency or organization; however, this is subject to the presenters' availability. Presenter fees are to be discussed between the presenter and agency/organization. Presenter costs vary (estimate: $2,500 honorarium plus travel and hotel expenses).

If an agency or organization is in need of continuing education credit support, the APA CEP Office is happy to provide this support along with marketing support for a nominal fee. Please contact the CEP Office for more information.
