In the real world, clients often don't present with "textbook" presentations of symptoms that neatly fall into a particular disorder. Many symptoms of mental disorders are "overlapping," meaning that the same symptom may be listed under several disorders.
With the limited time that clinicians often have, how do we quickly formulate an accurate diagnosis?
Find out by attending this 1-hour webinar! We'll use real case examples to show you how to use differential diagnosis resources for overlapping symptoms.
- Define "overlapping" symptoms.
- Describe how to use the "differential diagnosis" section of the DSM-5.
- Use the DSM-5 Differential Diagnosis mobile application to formulate a diagnosis for case scenarios involving overlapping symptoms.
This event is free for all NBFE members (Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluators and applicants and candidates pursuing the CFMHE credential) as well as all members of organizations that partner with NBFE (see Professional Partners page for a complete list). If, however, an attendee wants a continuing education certificate via email, then an administrative fee of $15 (members of NBFE and partnering organizations) or $20 (non-members) will be assessed.
