The fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5, was published May 2013. In addition to changing the diagnostic nomenclature as well as adding new diagnoses, this edition has also prompted significant changes to how mental illness is approached by counselors. For mental health professionals currently working in the field, learning these changes can be an overwhelming task.
