~Seminar Attendee
  • Controversial & enhanced ways of understanding and treat human behaviors

Controversy … change … and one of the most anticipated events in mental health history is here. The DSM-5® is going to change the way you view, diagnose and treat mental illness.
For the first time ever, the DSM® depends on and incorporates evidence from the neurosciences, genetic studies, twins studies, and overall areas of research that had been largely ignored in previous editions of the DSM®. One of the biggest changes in the new edition is a dramatically fresh approach to diagnostics. The new DSM® is intended to better fit with the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) – requiring a new paradigm and new diagnostic skills.
Invest in your career — after years of anticipation and delay – the wait is over. The DSM-5® was released in late May 2013 and this seminar will cover the latest DSM-5® information.
