Differential Diagnosis


Course Description: This online course focuses on the major elements of using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). Upon completion of this course, participants will have a greater understanding of the DSM-5 and how to use this tool for the objective, evidenced based diagnosing of a client in order to help the clinician in the assessment/placement for that client. Participants will be able to recognize the difference between use, abuse and dependence that existed in the DSM-IV-TR, and the ability to understand and consistently utilize the new diagnostic criteria of substance use disorders (mild, moderate and severe). Participants will also understand changes in other disorders in the DSM-5 including PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Personality Disorder, and more. Multiple exercises will enable participants to utilize critical thinking while helping them to gain inter-rater reliability in making a diagnostic impression using the DSM-5.
