Designed for mental health professionals, this course discusses the most recent bereavement-related diagnostic criteria in the DSM-5® including the bereavement exclusion in major depressive disorder, uncomplicated grief, and persistent complex
bereavement disorder. You’ll learn why the changes were needed, what the implications of those changes are in clinical practice, and how those implications can enhance or detract from differential bereavement assessments. Also discussed is a look ahead to why the inclusion of prolonged grief disorder in future DSMs is needed in clinical practice and proposed criteria.
