Major revisions, many of which are controversial, have been made to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. These sweeping revisions include the discontinuation of the multiaxial system; the addition and deletion of specific disorders; regrouping and reclassification of familiar disorders; and significant changes in the names, nature and criteria associated with various disorders. Importantly, the DSM-5 continues “harmonize” with the ICD-10-CM in preparation for the impending HIPPA mandates, requiring practitioners to understand the nature of the transition to the ICD codes and the implications this carries for professional practice.

This workshop is designed to help you:

  • Identify at least 10 key changes in the DSM-5.
  • Discuss at least three significant controversies generated by the most recent revision of the manual.
  • Describe the differences between the DSM-5 and the ICD 10-CM  and the implications for diagnosis and reimbursement
