DSM-5 Training: What You Need to Know – A Master Workshop from the Experts – Columbus

5.5 hours of educational content that covers all the changes from DSM-IV and DSM-5
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.

The workshop will also touch upon the cross-walk that is available in DSM-5 designed to interface with either ICD-9-CM or ICD-10-CM (not to be implemented prior to Oct. 1, 2015) for billing purposes.

Speaker: Molly McVoy, MD, is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Case Western Reserve/University Hospitals of Cleveland and is the Training Director for the child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship training program.

Psychological Approaches to Intervene and Refer Clients with Addiction(s) – Sharonville

The fear of heroin addiction has been screaming across TVs and on the front page of newspapers for months, but a recent article in the New England Journal of medicine (6/5/14) asserts that marijuana is addictive as well, especially among adolescents and young adults. Inappropriate sexual behaviors are highlighted daily in the media, but what are the effects of pornography on relationships and families? Psychologists can impact successfully on these disorders. Substance use disorders are just some of the series of potentially addictive behaviors that face an ever-growing population of individuals who are facing problems with gambling, sexual compulsions, internet dependency, and pathological relationships with food. Psychologists often underestimate these problems partly because our clients minimize, deny and rationalize. This evening will provide information about successful strategies to help individuals, referral recommendations, and plans to be a great resource for your clients.
