DSM-5 Draft Criteria Featured in Sessions

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders will be featured in 12 sessions at the APA Annual Meeting. Updates will be provided by each of the workgroups developing DSM-5 through a series of three symposia. An interactive session will solicit opinions from attendees on a number of key questions on proposed criteria questions, terminology and diagnostic lables. Proposed inclusion of dimensional assessments in DSM-5 will be presented at a scientific and clinical report session, including an APA paper presented by lead author William E. Narrow, M.D., M.P.H., Task Force research director. See the press release for a listing of DSM-5 events.
