The Mood Disorders Work Group will discuss the diagnoses of major depression, bipolar disorder, and other mood disorders across
the lifespan, while an additional session on the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in military populations
will present the latest research from evidence-based medicine on PTSD diagnosis and management. The track will also feature
a National Institutes of Healthâsupported symposium on patient-reported outcomes, as well as an interactive workshop that
will solicit audience feedback on proposed DSM-5 diagnostic criteria. The remaining three sessions will emphasize overarching issues in DSM-5 development, including the proposed reorganization of diagnostic chapters within the manual; a discussion of the implementation
and results from DSM-5 field trials; and a research forum describing collaborative efforts between APA and the World Health Organization in International Classification of Diseases revision activities.
