5.5 hours of CE for psychologists
The focus of this master workshop is to educate clinicians and researchers on the major changes from DSM-IV to DSM-5, including diagnosis-specific changes (e.g., criteria revisions) as well as broader, manual-wide changes (e.g., revised chapter ordering, use of dimensional assessments, integration of neuroscience and developmental material across the manual).
The primary emphasis is on ensuring clinicians understand how these changes might impact patient care and knowing what modification might be necessary to implement these revisions in their practice. Presentations will also address potential scientific implications and assist researchers in understanding how DSM-5 might impact the study of mental disorders.
Approved for 5.5 hours of CME for physicians and 5.5 hours of CE for psychologists, counselors, social workers and marriage and family therapists.
