Finally!  Resources that will help you navigate the changing diagnosis of mental disorders.

  • How to switch easily to the ICD-10 codes for mental disorders
  • Update on major changes in diagnosis of childhood and adolescent disorders
  • Reporting DSM-5® diagnoses now that Axis I and the Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) score are gone
  • Important neuroscience discoveries that shape DSM-5® diagnoses

The DSM-5® manual, released in May 2013, requires substantial changes in the classification and diagnosis of mental disorders. These changes reflect the explosion of new information in psychopathology, neuroscience, and treatment over the past 15 years plus the need for a stronger link to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

This information-packed recording specifically emphasizes changes from the DSM-IV® to DSM-5®. You will walk through the DSM-5® manual and highlight the revisions, new diagnoses, and new specifiers that are most relevant to your daily practice. Information about the ICD-10, designated to be HIPAA’s official code book for mental disorders in 2015 will also be integrated throughout. Case examples and case studies will help you transition from making DSM-IV® multi-axial diagnoses (Axis I-V) to effective diagnosis with the DSM-5® and ICD-10 coding systems without axis.



This online program is worth 6.25 hours CPD.
