About the Workshop:

DSM-5 (a) avoids defining addiction (referring only to
the generic “Substance Use Disorders”), (b) includes the
following degrees of such disorders — mild, moderate, and
severe, (c) expands the “addiction” umbrella for the first time
to include non-substance (behavioral) addictions, beginning
with gambling, (d) suggests the likelihood that other such
addictions will soon be added (e.g., Internet, videos, sex,
eating/obesity), (e) fields claims from important psychiatric
figures that this document is not sufficiently rooted in
neuroscience. Psychologists must be prepared for a new
— but shifting — concept of addiction, so as to be true
to psychological theory and evidence-based techniques,
responsive to the range of clinical addictive problems clients
may present, and make use of the soundest scientific
concepts. Stanton Peele’s workshop will address these

Did you know that polysubstance use is gone from the DSM-5 but can still be used from within the ICD-10? Did you know that the DSM-5 no longer provides a code for Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia, but the ICD-10 does? Did you know that the ICD recognizes a range of developmental disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, affective disorders, impulse control disorders, and somatoform disorders that you can still diagnose, but are no longer contained in the DSM-5?

Seismic shifts in the diagnostic landscape have been triggered both by the introduction of the DSM-5 and by its required articulation with the ICD-10. Most clinicians are using one of these diagnostic systems or the other without knowing that they are designed to be used together, in tandem with one another. This workshop is designed to enhance diagnostic options and effectiveness by detailing the ways in which the ICD-10 can be used with the DSM-5. It is designed for professionals who have a working knowledge of the DSM-5 and are interested in understanding the way in which it articulates with the ICD-10 in support of more effective and efficient diagnostic practice. Features of the DSM and the ICD are compared and contrasted, and a “crosswalk” between the two systems is detailed in relation to a range of disorders that commonly present in community and independent practice contexts. By better understanding the ICD-10, clinicians can learn how to draw from the strengths of both manuals in support of more effective and efficient clinical diagnosis.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe at least three differences between the DSM and the ICD
  2. Discuss at least three different disorders that are in either the DSM or the ICD but are not in the other
  3. Substance Disorders are handled differently in the DSM and the ICD; discuss any two of these differences.
