CLE: 1.00

Objective:  In May 2013, the American Psychiatric Association published the new "DSM-5," the latest edition of the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" that has been the foundation of psychiatric diagnosis since 1952.  The DSM-5 contains many changes that will significantly affect the representation of indigent criminal defendants with mental illness.  This session will review the impact of the DSM V last year.  Learning objectives for this presentation include:

  1. understand new DSM-5 criteria for mental disorders most commonly encountered in criminal practice
  2. learn how diagnoses for persons with more than one disorder will be listed per the DSM-5
  3. review how changes in diagnostic criteria have already begun to influence current criminal cases
  4. address how counsel may decide request--or avoid--re-evaluation in light of changes in diagnostic criteria
