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. 

Since its inception in 1952 the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) has reflected sociopolitical positions while simultaneously shaping them. No topic has gone through more revisions, or been more controversial, than sexuality. The diagnosis of sexual orientations, behaviors and genders continue to have significant impacts on marginalized communities and the rights they are afforded and denied. This seminar will trace the evolution of these diagnoses, examine what the DSM current does and does not address and muse on future directions the manual may take.
