Friday, November 15, 2013Speaker: Dr. Erick Messias UAMS Associate Professor of Psychiatry & Epidemiology and Medical Director, Walker Family Clinic
We had a great turn out for this seminar, over 35 clinicians attended. The course was for clinicians who are already familiar with the DSM-IV-TR, its content, and its use. This presentation is solely to facilitate the transition from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5 and is not intended as a basic course in DSM-5. The evolution of the DSM was covered. Then we looked at DSM5 revisions with a brief history of conceptual approaches. New developments and the intent of these to improve validity and a more etiologically-based classification system were discussed. New and eliminated disorders were reviewed.
