The polarization surrounding the DSM often places mental health workers in camps of “medical model” versus “non- medical model.”  This gap is often exacerbated based on misunderstandings, which can lead to the perpetuation of misinformation, and ultimately place clients at risk of harm. In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Carissa Muth will provide a brief history of the DSM, including its purpose, in order bridge the gap between these seemingly opposite epistemologies. Dr. Muth will also provide an overview of common DSM-5-TR diagnoses and how to use them in a manner that benefits client’s treatment and wellbeing. As well, Dr. Muth will offer clarifying facts such as why the diagnosis CPTSD is included in the ICD-11 but not the DSM-5-TR.
