DSM-5® includes an entirely new chapter called “Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders.” It includes several changes in the conceptualization of these disorders and substantially revises the diagnostic criteria. For example, the definition of a “traumatic event” for a PTSD diagnosis has been clarified and tightened, and additional PTSD diagnostic criteria (such as reckless or self-destructive behaviour) reflect up-to-date research findings. Trauma-related diagnoses applied to children have changed considerably as well.
This seminar will summarize the most important changes to these diagnoses and explain the rationale behind the changes, as well as highlight some remaining controversies. It will include a user-friendly report on the psychobiological research findings behind the changes to these diagnoses, taking the approach that knowing the biological foundations for these trauma-based symptoms can improve your conceptualization and therefore treatment of your clients. We will review differential diagnosis, as well as how to usefully incorporate two of the new DSM-5® online assessment tools to better track clients’ progress.
- Describe how PTSD and Acute Stress Disorder diagnoses have been revised substantially, and the rationale behind these extensive changes
- Explain differential diagnosis of PTSD vs. adjustment disorder, and PTSD vs. mood or anxiety disorder, as well as how to diagnose bereavement-related trauma
