Proposed Changes to DSM-V

The website www.DSM5.org <http://www.DSM5.org>  lists many proposed changes for the DSM. Also there is a call out for licensed counselors willing and able to accept at least 1 new client per month and invest about 2 hours of time in an on-line training to field test the DSM-V.

More details available on the APA’s DSM-V Development site:
