Register now! Upcoming Webinar to Explore Changes in the DSM-5

by: NCRG Staff | Apr 17, 2013

Dr. Jon GrantOne of the most anticipated events in the mental health field is the publication of the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in May 2013. Many of the changes have caused great debate and “pathological gambling” is no exception, with substantial changes in classification, the name of the disorder and the number of symptoms required for a diagnosis.

Are we ready for these changes? Jon E. Grant, J.D., M.D., M.P.H., professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at the University of Chicago School of Medicine, will bring us up-to-date during a free, one-hour webinar, titled “From Pathological Gambling to Gambling Disorder: Changes in the DSM-5,” on Wed., April 24, 2013 from 2-3 p.m. EST. He will discuss the rationale for the changes in the diagnostic code and the implications for assessing individuals with a gambling disorder.
