Accurately diagnosing our clients is an important step towards helping to alleviate their suffering. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5), focusing particularly on the newest diagnoses added to the manual and areas that are frequently confusing to practitioners. To make this content most useful, we will review best practices in differential diagnosing procedure.
here will be several small group exercises diagnosing case scenarios with discussion by the class. Participants who have a copy of the DSM-5 (full manual or desk reference) are encouraged to bring it to the workshop. Class size is limited to 45.
