The DSM-5-TR serves as the federal government’s official manual for the diagnosing of mental disorders. The literature presented with the text provides practicing clinicians with research, current codes, and criteria for diagnosing mental disorders and other conditions. This program will provide a review of the chapters, cover changes from the DSM to the DSM-TR, and offer a refresher for the practicing clinician. 

This training will provide clinicians with the latest information and tools they need to accurately diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The workshop will cover the newest changes and revisions made to the manual, including new disorders, changes to existing disorder criteria, and an overview of diagnostic key terms.

In addition, the training will offer practical guidance on how to implement the changes in clinical practice, including how to use the manual effectively and efficiently, and how to communicate diagnostic results to patients and other healthcare providers. Overall, the training will help clinicians stay up-to-date and provide the best possible care to their clients and their families.
