Exploring Current and Potential Behavioral Addictions in the DSM-5


Apr 27, 2018 2:00pm ‐ Apr 27, 2018 3:30pm


Credits: None available.

Description

This advanced session explores current and potential addictive disorders found in the DSM-5. This includes gambling disorder, at this time the only addictive disorder enumerated alongside the substance-related disorders in the DSM-5. Internet gaming disorder, currently a condition identified for further study, will be highlighted inclusive of cultural and diversity considerations. Additionally, the presenters will provide a research overview of possible future identified addictive disorders, presently under review.

This presentation aims to impart practical knowledge for attendees that will assist them across varying clinical and educational settings. This includes a thorough review of current and potential future behavioral addictions, accurate diagnosing, and differential diagnosis requirements. Addictive disorders are cross-cutting and manifest in all age groups, levels of socioeconomic status, educational attainment, gender, culture, ethnicity, religion, etc. (APA, 2013; Author, 2014; Dawson, Goldstein, & Grant, 2013; Keyes, Krueger, Grant, & Hasin, 2011). The presenters will underscore that behavioral and substance addictions have an abundance of phenomenological similarities. Some factors to be discussed include the etiological convergences between the substance-related disorders and identified behavioral addictions inclusive of shopping, exercise, work, internet, social media, sex, and non-internet gaming.

    Learning Objectives:

    • The presentation will emphasize appropriate DSM-5 diagnostic, differential diagnosis, and coding practices for clients diagnosed with gambling disorder. This will assist professional counselors in rendering sound diagnostic decision making and appropriate treatment recommendations for the clients and their families. This includes providing an understanding of ethical and diversity implications across this client population.
    • Attendees will leave with diagnostic, etiological, and treatment knowledge regarding internet gaming disorder which is currently listed as a Condition for Further Study in the DSM-5. The facilitators will incorporate the existing empirical evidence and cross-cultural implications for this addictive pattern of behaviors.
    • The presenters will review the evidence-based literature for potential upcoming DSM behavioral addictions. Ethical and diversity considerations will be explored to enhance attendee learning.
