    Don't Let the "TR" Fool You: The DSM-5-TR is Far More Than a Text Revision

    Friday, August 26 from 2-4PM

    2 CE Credits


    This workshop is presented by the Hawai'i Psychological Association in collaboration with more than 35 State, Provincial and Territorial Psychological Associations. HPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. HPA maintains responsibility for this program and its contents. Instructions for logging into the Zoom presentation will be sent to you. If you have any questions, please contact DPA via email delpsychology@gmail.com or 302-635-0311.

    This workshop overviews the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5. Critical diagnostic developments in the Text Revision include the return of Mood Disorders, the inclusion of ICD-10 codes for Suicidal Behavior and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury, and the addition of Prolonged Grief Disorder, among others. These inclusions are joined by diagnostic revisions or clarifications to dozens of additional disorders, in addition to more comprehensive attention to issues of race, equity, and discrimination. Participants will receive 2 CEs for this workshop.
