DSM-5: What Clinicians Need to Know and Practical Applications

CEU's for the following workshop are applicable for psychologists only.
 
Date: Friday, July 12, 2012
Time: Workshop 9 - 12, check-in and coffee 8:30

Release of DSM-5 marks the first major revision to the classification and diagnostic criteria for mental disorders since DSM-IV was released in 1994. The focus of this workshop is to educate clinicians on the major changes from DSM-IV to DSM-5, including diagnosis-specific changes (e.g., criteria revisions) as well as broader, manual-wide changes (e.g., revised chapter ordering, use of dimensional assessments, integration of neuroscience and developmental material across the manual, abolishment of the multiaxial system). Lecture also will include a brief history of events and processes leading up to the development of DSM-5, as well as the rationales for various changes. However, the primary emphasis is on ensuring that psychologists understand the core revisions, how these changes might impact patient care (e.g., insurance implications), and knowing what modifications might be necessary to implement these revisions in their practice (e.g., correct usage of ICD codes). Advanced knowledge of the DSM-IV is required.
Presenter: Darrel A. Regier, M.D., M.P.H.

CEUs: 3 Hours

Learning objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, the participant should be able to:

1.    List some of the core changes in the diagnostic criteria for select mental disorders

2.    Discuss how the classification of mental disorders in DSM-5 differs from that of DSM-IV

3.    Explain the main ways in which dimensional assessments have been integrated into DSM-5

4.    Describe how ICD coding in DSM-5 differs from DSM-IV and possible implications for insurance and billing


Mind/Body Approaches and Life Enhancement

Date: Friday, July 12, 2012
Time: 1 pm - 4 pm

This workshop will focus upon the benefits that Mind/Body practices provide. To accomplish this we will discuss the effects of Mind/Body approaches upon enhanced psycho/biological functioning and overall well-being. We will also examine the role of mirror neurons, limbic resonance, empathic attunement, and vitalization/attunement in the creation of a new and transformative healing narrative that promotes growth and overall life enhancement. The integration of Neuroscience, relational psychology and Mind/Body approaches will also be included to provide a lens to examine the relationship between physical and emotional health and heightened states of consciousness. Additionally, an experiential approach will be provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment modality.

Presenter: Stephen Stein, Ph.D.
                    Jade Wood, M.A.

At the conclusion of this session, the participant should be able to:

  1. Describe three psycho/biological functions that are enhanced by Mind/Body procedures
