About This Workshop

This workshop is presented by the Iowa Psychological Association and a coalition of over 35 State, Provincial and Territorial Psychological Associations.

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.

Workshop Overview

II.   Dual/Dueling Diagnostic Systems: The ICD and the DSM

III.  New Disorders in the DSM-5-TR

  • Unspecified Mood Disorders
  • Suicidal Behavior and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury (NSSI)
