Please join me for the Psychotherapy Networker (PTN) webinar series on the DSM 5 at my office. We will start the webinar shortly after 5:00 on each of the next five Wednesdays. This is a free training and does not offer CEU/CLE credits. Here are the dates and topics:
September 18, Saving Normal: Has Psychiatric Diagnosis Gotten Out of Control? (This has already played, and I can summarize for anyone interested the interesting critiques of the DSM 5 offered in this session.)
September 25, Navigating the New DSM-5: Ten Ways It Will Impact Your Practice
October 2, Answering the Critics: Inside the Decision-Making for DSM-5
October 9, Revolutionizing Diagnosis and Treatment Using DSM-5
October 16, The Book of Woe: DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry
October 23, Beyond DSM-5: The Future of Treating Mental Disorders
You might be wondering why is a divorce lawyer interested in the DSM 5? I’m not per se, but I am very interested in what drives conflict and how to reduce it. I just completed a one year graduate certificate program in interpersonal neurobiology, where my thesis involved my ongoing interest in combining neurobiology, personality/attachment, systems and context to better understand client’s needs in conflict and how to address them to achieve better outcomes in family law cases. I have enjoyed many PTN webinar series over the years, and I am looking forward to getting my mind around the language, strengths and weaknesses of the DSM 5, and how it compares to the DSM IV, ICD, and other approaches, including particularly to personality dysfunction.
I hope you will consider joining me in challenging ourselves and exercising our Social Engagement Systems. If you are interested, please contact my office by phone or email to let me know what times during the 24 period work best for you, and we will contact you with the schedule that works best for everyone. Please feel free to join us for one or more seminars in the series. I like to budget one hour for the webinar and another hour or so for discussion (sessions will not go past 6:50 p.m.).
