This workshop overviews the key diagnostic developments and departures of the DSM-5-TR in relation to its predecessor, the DSM-5. Marquis diagnostic developments in the Text Revision include the return of Mood Disorders, the inclusion of ICD-10 codes for Suicidal Behavior and Non-Suicidal 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.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify at least three new inclusions in the DSM-5-TR
  2. Discuss the rationale for at least three of the diagnostic manual’s novel inclusions or revisions
  3. Compare and contrast the DSM-5-TR with the DSM-5 and the ICD-11
