Description

The DSM-IV was published in 1994 and updated by the APA’s DSM-IV-TR in 2000. Since then the DSM has become the “gold standard” and the “mental health bible” for those practicing in mental health. With the publication of the DSM-5 in May 2013, the new standard for the diagnosis of Psychological and Emotional Disorder has been established. Some disorders are eliminated completely; others are reclassified; and some are subsumed under other disorders. New classifications are also established to clarify appropriate diagnostic criteria and allow for more effective treatment planning. Many of these have generated considerable controversy and debate among healthcare professionals, even before the manual’s release. Other disorders have undergone minor changes in order to reflect the current thinking and new research available. It’s imperative that all mental health professionals update their understanding of the APA’s new edition of the DSM to effectively identify, diagnose, and classify behavioral and mental health issues in individuals.
While providing a brief overview of the changes adopted in the DSM-5, this workshop focuses on diagnosis for children and adolescents. Because the DSM-5 is organized in sequence with the developmental lifespan, the disorders previously addressed in a single “infancy, childhood, and adolescence” chapter are now integrated throughout the manual. Therefore, accurately diagnosing children and adolescence is more important than ever, as those in the mental health field look to avoid misdiagnosing and overmedicating young people. As a member of the APA and a mental health professional focusing on children and adolescents for more than 30 years, Dr. George Haarman, Psy.D., LMFT, brings clarity to the forefront regarding the new classifications issued in the DSM-5 and the rationale behind those changes. Using numerous case studies, Dr. Haarman prepares each attendee to be able to provide precise assessment of young patients immediately.
