About the Course:
The Intelligent Clinician’s Guide to the DSM-5® explores all revisions to the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistics Manual, and shows clinicians how they can best apply the strong points and shortcomings of psychiatry’s most contentious resource. Written by a celebrated professor of psychiatry, this reader-friendly book uses evidence-based critiques and new research to point out where DSM-5 is right, where it is wrong, and where the jury’s still out. Along the way, The Intelligent Clinician’s Guide to the DSM-5® sifts through the many public controversies and clinical debates surrounding the drafting of the manual and shows how they inform a modern understanding of psychiatric illness, diagnosis and treatment.
This course is based on the book, The Intelligent Clinician’s Guide to the DSM-5 created by Joel Paris, MD in 2013.
