Many children, youth, and adults seen in youth services, child welfare, and mental health have been given multiple diagnoses. A primary goal of the DSM 5 has been to improve consistency of diagnoses given by different providers. The quality of mental health services can be negatively impacted when there have been different diagnoses given to the same client. This situation is made more difficult when common mental health symptoms (i.e. depression, anxiety, and aggressive behavior) overlap with multiple mental disorders.

This course provides a comprehensive process for using differential diagnoses to improve the treatment of mental disorders in children, youth, and adults. A step-by-step rule-out to follow at the beginning of the differential diagnosis process is presented. Decision trees to make differential diagnoses based on observed primary mental health symptoms are provided including behavior problems, psychotic symptoms, depression, suicidality, anxiety, and aggression. Differential diagnosis based on the primary mental disorders seen in children, youth, and adults are also reviewed. Group discussions will focus on challenges seen in differential diagnoses in your clients and participants will present case studies.
