Date: Friday, August 26, 2022 – 3 pm to 5 pm Atlantic time by Zoom
This workshop is presented by APNS and a coalition of over 35 State, Provincial and Territorial Psychological Associations of APA.
This workshop overviews the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5. Critical 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.
