DSM-5-TR Webinar

 Don’t Let the “TR” Fool You: The DSM-5-TR is Far More Than a Text Revision

Format: Online







This workshop surveys the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5.  Diagnostic developments in the Text Revision include the return of Mood Disorders, the inclusion of ICD-10 codes for Suicidal Behavior and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury, and the addition of Prolonged Grief Disorder.  These inclusions are joined by diagnostic revisions or clarifications to dozens of additional disorders, in addition to more comprehensive attention to issues of race, equity, and discrimination.
