Dr. Greg J. Neimeyer, a psychology professor and a Fellow at the American Psychological Association, is a nationally known expert on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The manual has undergone substantial revision across its sixty years of evolution, with the latest version (DSM-5) continuing that tradition in substantial ways. The discontinuation of the multi-axial system, the addition and deletion of specific disorders, the regrouping and reclassification of familiar disorders, and significant changes in the names, nature and criteria associated with various disorders all mark the fifth edition of the DSM as a substantial, and controversial, revision of the diagnostic system. These and many other changes are described and discussed in Dr. Neimeyer’s workshops, which are designed to convey the nature of the conceptual and empirical support associated with key revisions of the DSM.
