About the Workshop

This "on-demand" pre-recorded presentation overviews the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5.  Marquee diagnostic developments in the Text Revision include the return of Mood Disorders, the inclusion of ICD-10 codes for Suicidal Behavior and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury, and the addition of Prolonged Grief Disorder, among others. These inclusions are joined by diagnostic revisions or clarifications to dozens of additional disorders, in addition to more comprehensive attention to issues of race, equity, and discrimination. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
1. Identify at least three new inclusions in the DSM-5-TR
2. Discuss the rationale for at least three of the diagnostic manual’s novel inclusions or revisions.
3. Distinguish grief from depression.
4. Describe the prevalence and criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorders.
5. Explain the rationale for the change from Gender Identity Disorder to Gender Dysphoria.
6. Compare and contrast the DSM-5-TR with the DSM-5 and the ICD-11
