Understanding Changes to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Acute Stress Disorder Diagnoses in DSM-5


 

DCoE Webinar Series (Psychological Health):  May 2014
 

Date/Time: May 22, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) provides a standard common language to classify mental disorders. The fifth revision of the DSM (referred to as DSM-5, published in May 2013) includes changes to the diagnostic criteria for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and acute stress disorder. Based on scientific research and clinical experience, the definitions of the disorders were revised to include a broader range of symptoms with more specific criteria.

This webinar elaborates on discussion, participant feedback and questions from the July 25, 2013, webinar “DSM-5: Revisions and Implications Related to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.” Panelists will include Dr. Matthew J. Friedman who led revision of the “Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorder” section of DSM-5, and Dr. Charles W. Hoge, a subject matter expert
