DSM-5 Wisdom From the Guy Who Wrote the Book!
by Leigh-Ann Renz, 10.14.14
DSM-5 Expert and Consultant Dr. Jason King
Ok, he didn’t write the whole book. But he was a part of the process: Dr. Jason King served as a DSM-5 Revision Task Force committee member for the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and the American Counseling Association (ACA), giving national and state presentations on the DSM-5 revision process and proposed diagnostic changes.
He co-owns and clinically directs Life Enhancement Center, an outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment clinic that collected data for the American Psychiatric Association’s Routine Clinical Practice field trials that informed the DSM-5 revision process. He has taught DSM and Clinical Assessment classes at the bachelor and master’s level.
We’re honored to have him on the PIMSY Advisory Board. And he has shared his DSM-5 wisdom with us (and therefore you!) He’s done an incredible job of showing, through both explanation and case studies, how DSM-5 coding differs from DSM-IV, and the rationale behind these changes. Check out his excellent articles below, originally published in Counseling Today magazine.
