How to Use the New Standards with Confidence
No single factor has a greater impact on insurance coverage, medication practices, clinical research, and how we think about mental disorders than the DSM. And the dramatic changes in the new DSM-5 are realities no mental health practitioner can afford to ignore.
Almost a year after its introduction, debate still swirls around DSM-5—the most radical and controversial revision of diagnostic standards in 20 years. Meanwhile, clinicians working with real clients every day want concrete guidance about how to assess and diagnose clients and be reimbursed by insurance companies in the DSM-5 era.
Here's an on-demand Networker Webcast series that gives you what you need. In 6 webcast sessions, this series covers the new DSM structure and the thinking behind it: what’s in, what’s been jettisoned, and how to assess and diagnose with confidence using the DSM-5 criteria.
