“The DSM-5: What to Expect and How to Prepare” Recorded Webinar

Implementing the DSM-5 has been a long and challenging process for behavioral healthcare and addiction treatment facilities and their practitioners.  New terminology, guidelines for classifications, and changes in daily practice routines are just a few areas the DSM-5 has affected.

Take this opportunity to discover how the alterations affect the work you do and how you can stay ahead of the curve.  During this webinar you will learn how the DSM-5 differs from the DSM-IV-TR, concerns and problems with the DSM-5, and how to incorporate these changes into daily practice with tangible suggestions.

  • Prepare users to approach the DSM-5 with critical thinking and how to best care for those they treat.
  • Assess ways to incorporate the changes into daily practice, with tangible suggestions and required dates of implementation for the new manual.
