APA-Endorsed Training Sessions on DSM-5 

Below you will find a listing of training sessions on the use of DSM-5 that have been endorsed by the APA.  The trainers presenting these sessions have received direct training from Drs. David Kupfer, Chair of the DSM-5 Task Force; Darrel Regier, Vice Chair of the DSM-5 Task Force; and William Narrow, DSM-5 Research Director.  Presentation slides used during these trainings were developed by these experts on DSM-5, so you can be assured that the information provided to you will be an accurate reflection of the intent of DSM-5’s developers.  The information below is not a complete listing of the APA-endorsed sessions that are available, and we will continually update this list as additional sessions are planned. 

Please note that these sessions are being organized local district branches of the APA.  The links provided will take you away from the APA DSM-5 website.  Please use the contact information provided on those sites if you have questions about the sessions.
