Course Description
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) was released in May 2013 and includes new disorders and revised criteria for existing mental disorders. This Webinar will assist clinical social workers in transitioning from the DSM-IV to the DSM-5. Changes will be highlighted
including the reorganization of the chapters, creation of new diagnoses and categories, consolidation and deletion of diagnoses, and the deletion of the multiaxial diagnosis with changes that include an emphasis on assessment measures. This Webinar benefits clinical social workers who diagnose and treat mental illness in all settings.
