DSM- 5-TR: 9:00- 12:00 (3 CEUs)

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) 5TR (Text Revision) is the standard classification of mental health including substance use disorders used by mental health and substance use treatment professionals. This training is a refresher of the DSM for those who have had other trainings.  This course may also be appropriate for clinicians with limited experience who would like an overview of the manual.  It is essential that all clinicians become proficient in the use of this critical guide. Additionally, a review of the recent text revision to DSM 5-TR will also be provided. Case studies will be utilized to assist participants in a working knowledge of the DSM 5TR in general practice.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have a working knowledge of: 

  • Comprehensive Screening and Assessment

  • Case Formalization

  • Subtypes and Specifiers

  • Principle Diagnosis

  • Provisional Diagnosis

  • Coding and Reporting Procedures

ASAM: 1:00-4:00 (3 CEUs)

This training was brought to you in collaboration with the Mountain Plains ATTC and CASAT Training.  
Treatment providers and program evaluators use patient placement criteria to ensure that clients are placed in the appropriate level of care. This training will provide an overview of The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria, 3rd Edition for clients with substance use and co-occurring disorders. Participants will learn to appropriately apply the admission, continued service and transfer/discharge criteria for adolescents and adults. The ASAM Criteria utilizes six dimensions to form a broad assessment, which in turn provides information for service and treatment planning across all levels of care. Participants will learn to assess mild, moderate, and severe effects of substance use on each dimension as it relates to placement criteria.
