Mental Health Day 15: An Overview of Actual DSM-5 Changes


If you listened to episode 14 w/ Dr. Leibenluft you heard a little about the new DSM-5 arriving at the end of May (2013).┬áDr. Todd Finnerty has been nerding-out over the DSM-5 for a few years now. He sat down all by himself on May 3, 2013 for an hour and gave a very general overview of many (but not all) of the changes that will actually be in the DSM-5 when it is released at the end of this month. This episode is meant for both the general public and professionals; however it is so far the one exception where professionals also have the option of getting continuing education credits from for listening. This is an extra-long 1 hour podcast about new mental disorders and changes to psychiatry’s diagnostic manual.
