Contemporary Diagnostic Developments: The Evolving Relationship Between the ICD and the DSM (and its Very Practical Implications)

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Rapid developments in the dual diagnostic systems (the DSM and the ICD) used for diagnosing psychological disorders make it difficult for clinical practitioners to keep pace. This workshop addresses the key relationships between the most recent versions of each system (the ICD-10-CM and the DSM-5) and underscores the significant advantages of understanding both systems, and their future developments, in the service of more effective clinical diagnosis.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify three differences between the ICD and the DSM.
  2. Discuss the advantages of knowing both the ICD and the DSM.
  3. Discuss the relationship between the ICD and the DSM and at least one upcoming development in both.

Depressive Disorders: Depression, Dysregulation and Dysfunction

Date / Time

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Radical reconfiguration of the Depressive Disorders section of the DSM-5 carries important implications for practicing clinicians. Key distinctions between Major Depressive Disorder and aspects of grief, loss, and bereavement have been emphasized, and a range of new disorders have been introduced (e.g., Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder) that remain unrecognized in the ICD, while others have been removed from this category and recategorized elsewhere (e.g. Bipolar Disorder). This workshop addresses the practical clinical implications associated with this reconceptualization, reconfiguration and revision.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify at least three disorders now included in the Depressive Disorders.
  2. Describe at least three key diagnostic distinctions between depression and grief.
  3. Discuss the controversy surrounding the introduction of the new disorder, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.

This workshop focuses on clinically useful tools available for assessing personality disorders, as well as a range of personality disorders covered in the ICD that are not included in the DSM. The relationship among the personality disorders, including the emergence of “The Dark Triad” as a diagnostic construct, is given special attention. Sample inventories are provided to support effective personality assessment.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe at least two Personality Disorders included in the ICD that are not in the DSM.
  2. Discuss the PID-5; what is it and how can it be useful in clinical practice.
  3. Describe the “Dark Triad” and its three components.

Social Disorders of Health: Social and Cultural Context in Diagnoses and Treatment

Date / Time

Venue

Contemporary clinical practice has turned attention toward Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), those broader, contextual factors that can play a key role in the development and maintenance of significant psychological distress. Social, economic, familial, and cultural contexts are addressed as key factors that can trigger or sustain psychological disorders. Attention is focused on how to assess and code a wide range of SDOH, as well as to address them within the context of treatment planning in support of more effective clinical outcomes. Sample SDOH screening tools are also illustrated and provided to participants for their use in diverse clinical contexts.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify at least five Social Determinants of Health.
  2. Discuss recent research concerning the Social Determinants of Health.
