About the Course:
This course provides a practical, straightforward, and readable summary of changes from the previous edition of the DSM by focusing on clinical utility and counselor practice implications. Another focus of the authors is to ensure readers understand what these changes mean to them and how they can be applied in day to day practice. In order to enhance efficiency, course materials highlight the changes that relate to disorders counselors most commonly treat. Emerging diagnostic trends, developmental considerations, the diagnostic interview, updated coding processes, the diagnostic interview, and culturally informed assessment are also presented. Overall, the material provided in this course is a highly readable and timely resource to clinical practice.
This course is based on the book, DSM-5 Learning Companion for Counselors created by Stephanie F. Dailey, Ed.D, Carman S. Gill, PhD., Shannon L. Karl, PhD., and Casey A. Barrio Minton, PhD. in 2014.
