Neurodiversity, Autism, and the DSM-5-TR

February 25, 2023

Saturday, February 25, 2023, 9:00am-12:30pm (PT)

Hosted by Lewis & Clark Graduate School. The most recent DSM-5 TR was released by the American Psychiatric Association in March 2022. While many of the text revisions reinforce trends that occurred in the changes from the DSM-IV to the DSM-5 (i.e., dimensional, fluid, and overlapping), the APA made changes to the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder that intend to limit and narrow the diagnosis from how it was interpreted in the DSM-5.

This workshop will discuss and explore possible reasons for this change, including the removal of Asperger’s Disorder from the DSM-5, and the growing neurodiversity movement.

Throughout this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn and/or recall the background of the DSM, including a DSM history and recent DSM changes.
  • Compare the changes to the DSM-IV, DSM-5, and DSM-5-TR related to Aspergers and autism.
  • Learn the meaning of neurodiversity and will be able to identify and discuss ways in which the neurodiversity movement has influenced current understandings of autism.
  • Share their own experiences and those of their clients related to an understanding of autism.
  • Evaluate the issues and decide how they will use the information gathered from these constructs.

3 CEUs are available.
