Psychiatric News
Volume 45 Number 4 page 32-32

With eight sessions on DSM-5, APA's 2010 annual meeting will feature highlights from each of the diagnostic work groups and broad updates about potential changes to the manual. Of particular interest is an interactive workshop that will allow attendees to provide feedback about possible revisions to criteria, terminology, and diagnostic labels.

The meeting will offer five DSM-5 symposia, including a three-session series with updates from each of the DSM-5 work groups and two diagnostic-specific sessions from the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Work Group and the Substance-Related Disorders Work Group. A full schedule of sessions will appear in a future issue of Psychiatric News.

Monday morning, May 24, will feature the annual DSM research forum, "DSM-5: Progress in Research and Development," which will introduce the three-part work group series and feature brief presentations from the DSM-5 study groups on impairment and disability, assessment, and instrumentation, and the interface between psychiatry and general medicine. Additionally, William Narrow, M.D., M.P.H., DSM-5 research director and associate director of APA's Division of Research, will discuss the purpose and impact of integrating dimensional assessments into DSM-5.
