Understanding the DSM-5 and the ICD: What Psychologists Need to Know
Disclaimer: DSM and DSM-5 are registered trademarks of the American Psychiatric Association. The American Psychiatric Association is not affiliated with nor endorses this seminar.
With the release of the DSM-5, psychologists need information about the proposed changes in the new manual. This three-hour workshop will provide an overview of the DSM-5 proposed revisions, including its development process, changes to the organizational structure and major revisions to existing diagnoses, as well as the introduction of new disorders. This workshop will also inform participants about the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), its designation as HIPAA's official code book for diagnosing mental disorders and its relationship to DSM-5, as well as its overall implications for psychological practice.
