The Defining Line is a series of short educational videos developed in the spirit of simplifying diagnoses in the DSM-5 that have overlapping diagnostic criteria. For example, are you familiar with the differences between Schizophreniform Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Schizoid Personality Disorder? Do you know what to ask to determine if a client is Bulimic or Anorexic? What is the difference between Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder? The objective of The Defining Line is to equip you with the knowledge necessary to quickly and confidently answer these types of questions.
