Presenter: Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD
The DSM-III/IV era has witnessed significant advances in research on psychopathology and clinical intervention. Although the purpose of psychiatric diagnosis is to provide a bridge between people’s problems and effective treatments, this link has been under-developed for a variety of historical, theoretical, scientific and practical reasons. In this three-part workshop, the presenter will review changes in the diagnosis of psychopathology from the DSM-IV to DSM-5 in the context of broader historical and theoretical issues of diagnosis. In addition to focusing on concrete differences in diagnostic criteria across editions of the DSM, the presenter will also highlight empirical evidence for these changes. Furthermore, research suggesting the need for more dramatic changes to how psychopathology is organized and diagnosed in future editions of the manual will be reviewed, with an emphasis on the potential for the further enhancement of clinical utility.
This workshop is designed to help you:
- Become familiar with the organization and implementation of the DSM-5.
- Learn specific criterion sets in the DSM-5, with a particular focus on adult diagnoses.
- Understand these changes in the context of broad historical, theoretical and empirical issues in mental health.
- Consider the implications of the DSM-5 for the future of psychopathology diagnosis.
This event is sold out.
