At the American Psychiatric Association conference in San Francisco with the editor of the DSM-5, David Kupfer, MD

 DSM-5 Training and Consultation

It’s here!

After many years of work, the new mental health diagnostic manual is now the tool used for mental health diagnosis. This book reflects significant changes in how we diagnose mental health challenges that people have. Over the past few years I have done dozens of workshops and have trained thousands of clinicians on the changes reflected in the manual.

Agencies and Institutions

As you think about the effective use of the DSM-5 you’ll want to your staff to be proficient in using the DSM-5. Having skilled clinicians will keep your agency in the best position to respond to the needs of those you serve.

I am eager to talk with you about the specific training that will benefit your workplace. We can tailor a program that will meet the needs of your staff. There are many creative options to deliver programming that will help your staff serve as sharp and skilled diagnosticians.

If you are looking for on site training and consultation, please contact me. I am available to provide services in all 50 states and internationally.

Professional Organizations

DSM-5 training is available to groups of social workers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, marriage and family therapists, and many other disciplines who diagnose people. Providing up to date training for your group of helping professionals is a good way to assure that you are up to date with how you diagnose people.

Presentation Style

I love doing trainings, and enjoy making them interactive, engaging, and fun for the participants. DSM-5 training does NOT have to be boring!

I was invited to be part of a video series on the DSM-5 by Psychotherapy Networker, “The Uproar Over DSM-5”. My session was “Navigating the New DSM-5: Ten Ways it will Impact Your Practice”.
