Dr. David Teplin Presenting at two Conferences

David Teplin, Adjunct Instructor in the  Department of Graduate Counseling and Psychology is presenting on Friday, September 20 at the annual meeting of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists, and Psychotherapists.  His talk, entitled, DSM-5: A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME? reviews the new DSM-5, the role of diagnosis and the diagnostic system, the advantages and limitations of such a system, and the role of diagnosis as it pertains to treatment.  In addition, since DSM has been overhauled and replaced by DSM-5, Dr. Teplin discusses the implications for these changes in everyday clinical practice.

Dr. Teplin will also present at the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine Annual Conference in Vancouver, BC, September 26-28, 2013.  His presentation, ADHD & SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS-WHAT’S THE DEAL? will address the co-morbidity between ADHD and substance use disorders, the various contributing factors that lend themselves to ADHD being a risk factor for developing substance use disorders, and the issues of assessment and treatment with respect to such co-morbidity.
