About the Workshop:
This workshop will review the nature of diagnosis in psychiatry and the history of the DSM process, describing the strong and weak points of this approach to classification of mental illness. It will then examine each of the major groupings of the manual, identify the major problems, and indicate where DSM-5 has made changes and where it has not.
1. To understand the scientific and ideological bases of the DSM system
2. To examine limitations of the DSM, but to indicate how future research might illuminate diagnostic problems
3. To examine each of the major diagnoses in psychiatry and to review how DSM-5 deals with them.
