Get Started

Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders was a new category of psychological disorders identified in the DSM-5. While most of the disorders in this category were not new to the DSM, changes in symptoms and criteria, and a misunderstanding of some of these disorders, have led to frequent misdiagnosing.

This 2.75-CE seminar focuses on common diagnosis pitfalls and challenges, and helps clinicians accurately diagnose these disorders for clinical or forensic purposes.
