Description: In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association published the updated version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, the DSM-5. This expanded, more contemporary version of the DSM including substantial changes which modified diagnoses, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disabilities. It also reorganized the structure of the DSM to classify disorders in slightly different ways, such as eliminating “Mood Disorders” as a diagnostic category in favor of separate categories for “Depressive Disorders” and “Bipolar Disorders.” The primary goals of the DSM-5 were to streamline diagnoses and better align the DSM with the International Classification of Disease (ICD). The revision of the DSM-5 was not without controversy, as the mental health community adjusted to changes in the diagnostic criteria. 

Like previous versions of the DSM, the use of the DSM over the past 9 years revealed aspects of the manual that still needed clarification and modification. Whereas the recommended clarifications and revisions did not warrant a move to DSM-6, enough updates were recommended to lead to the publication of the DSM-5-Text Revision (DSM-5-TR), released in March 2022. In addition to aligning codes with ICD-10, the DSM-5-TR includes modifications that will likely influence some aspects of clinical work, including the inclusion of a new diagnosis of Prolonged Grief Disorder. This workshop will provide a quick overview of the major changes. Attendees will also have a chance to reflect on potential implications for practice, especially related to Prolonged Grief Disorder and the impact of racism/discrimination on symptom presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will gain knowledge on revisions included in the DSM-5-TR.
  • Attendees will be able to describe the new diagnosis of Prolonged Grief Disorder.
  • Attendees will reflect on the inclusion of identifying the impact of racism and discrimination on psychological symptoms.
  • Attendees will be able to reflect on changes and implication for clinical practice.
