This advanced seminar is a hands-on interactive session where numerous cases will be reviewed and the process of diagnosing using the DSM-5 will be highlighted. The new non-multi-axial diagnostic system will be reviewed, and participants will learn to use the new diagnostic system ethically and appropriately with multicultural competence. Diversity, including age, gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, immigrant status are focused on within the cases; culturally sensitive and appropriate diagnostic formulations will be examined. Implications for treatment planning will also be discussed.

Participants must bring their own copy of the DSM 5.

This advanced seminar will enable you to:

  • learn the major changes in diagnostic formulation using the DSM 5
  • practice diagnosing with the DSM-5 using case examples
  • make culturally competent diagnoses and treatment goals using the DSM 5
