Get a valuable introduction to the revision to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), which is scheduled for publication by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013. We will explore the process by which the DSM was revised, the changes to the format of diagnosis, alterations in specific diagnoses, and social justice issues related to these revisions. The workshop is designed for professionals and advanced students already familiar with the DSM-IV-TR and diagnostic practices, as it serves to update the participants’ knowledge based on the DSM revisions, rather than to introduce the novice practitioner to diagnostic procedures.
Elizabeth Maynard, PhD, is trained and licensed as a clinical psychologist and has focused her work on adult clients. Her emphasis in research, training, and clinical work is on the intersection of sexuality and religion/spirituality. Some of her recent work has also focused on the ways in which the DSM has served as a “sacred” text in a secular mental health community.
