Access provided upon registration on “My Courses page.

The DSM5TR 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. 

All DSM-5-TR eating disorder diagnoses will be reviewed, in addition to providing commentary as to how to assess the eating disorder diagnostic criteria. Several changes from the DSM-5 to the DSM-5-TR will be highlighted. Clinical examples will be provided to compare and contrast the different eating disorders. The diagnostic validity of the eating disorders section of the DSM-5-TR also will be discussed, particularly issues of diagnostic cross-over and diagnostic stability. Lastly, some clinical and research information in the areas of epidemiology and comorbidity will be infused throughout the presentation in order to put the diagnostic information into context.
