Online Course » DSM05 DSM-5 - Depressive Disorders

Course Description:
Now, the developers of the DSM-5 have recognized that while most people have grief reactions within a typical range, 10 to 15 percent of grievers have severe reactions to the loss of a loved one and thus may need treatment that includes prescription medication and therapy.  So now, a person who is grieving a loss potentially may be diagnosed with depression or an adjustment disorder.  Since the profound sadness that stems from grief can look a lot like the sadness depression brings, and since this similarity can create a dilemma for mental health professionals, the bereavement exclusion from these diagnoses has become highly controversial.
Course Objective:
This program provides clinicians with the opportunity to learn about:
Identify the three significant shifts in depressive disorders from the DSM-4TR to the DSM-5.
Understand why mood disorders are separate from depressive disorders in the DSM-5.
Know what two descriptions are important in the diagnosis of Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder in children.
Understand how the male presentation of depressive symptoms differs from the female presentation of depressive symptoms.

Intended Audience:
Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addiction Therapists
