Topic: Introduction to the DSM-5
This 3 hour training session is designed to meet the needs of practitioners and students in the field of Mental Health Counseling by providing an introduction to the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), which was published by the American Psychiatric Association on May 27, 2013. This workshop will highlight significant changes from the previous edition (DSM-IV-TR), and focus on what LMHC's and other mental health professionals need to know to incorporate this framework into their practice. The presenter, Dr. Dayle Jones LMHC is notably qualified to address this topic as she served as chair of the American Counseling Association's "DSM-5 Proposed Revisions Task Force," and is column editor for Counseling Today's "Inside the DSM-5."
