Abstract

  • Outline and present the changes in diagnostic criteria and diagnoses between the DSM IV-TR and the DSM 5.
  • Discuss how to talk to and work with clients if their diagnosis has changed or been removed.
  • Upon early research, it appears that there is little literature that focuses on how staff can talk to clients about diagnosis changes or elimination.
  • Learn more about changes and talking to clients
  • Present this information to staff so they have an awareness of this when the changes are made in October of 2015 and the DSM 5 is to be fully implemented.
