Title: DSM V and the problems of psychiatric diagnosis

Date: Thursday 13 June 2013

Venue: HG02, Hendon Campus

Time: 4pm

Abstract: In the light of the debates triggered by the recent publication of the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's DSM, in this talk I will outline the longstanding problems associated with psychiatric diagnostic frameworks and suggest possible future directions for more valid and humane alternative approaches to conceptualising distress.
