Dr. Munson participated in field trials for the DSM-5.  The presentation covers changes in the dimensionally-oriented 20 categories of disorders.  Topics to be covered include what practitioners need to know (and do) to successfully transition to the new DSM system:

  • Review of changes in how diagnoses are recorded
  • Changes in the organization of the manual
  • Criteria changes for specific DSM disorders
  • Coverage of the "Other Conditions That May Be a Focus of Clinical Attention" section
  • Ethical guideposts for using the manual

This course meets the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners 3-credit hour requirement for ethics training.
