I’m working on a health & medical question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.
You learned a little about the changes to the diagnostic criteria for substance addictions that are included in the DSM 5 (now DSM-5-TR). How do you see these changes impacting the way you conceptualize addictions as a future counselor? What challenges do you see with the changes, and what benefits do you see resulting from these changes? What impact will these changes have on our clients?
