Morning Session (9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.):
Understanding the DSM-5: Didactic Review

Back by popular demand, Dr. Augustine Sicard is back to Review the DSM-5. If you missed this workshop last year or just need a refresher, your opportunity is here! Dr. Sicard will review the changes from the DSM-IV to the DSM-5 and discuss how these changes affect our clinical practice. The workshop will focus on changes to substance use and related disorders, and common mental health disorders. Be sure to bring a DSM-5 with you to class. 

*Participants will need to bring their own copy of the DSM-5. DSM-5 Books will be needed for both workshops. *
