About the Event:

DSM-5 (a) avoids defining addiction (referring only to
the generic “Substance Use Disorders”), (b) includes the
following degrees of such disorders — mild, moderate, and
severe, (c) expands the “addiction” umbrella for the first time
to include non-substance (behavioral) addictions, beginning
with gambling, (d) suggests the likelihood that other such
addictions will soon be added (e.g., Internet, videos, sex,
eating/obesity), (e) fields claims from important psychiatric
figures that this document is not sufficiently rooted in
neuroscience. Psychologists must be prepared for a new
— but shifting — concept of addiction, so as to be true
to psychological theory and evidence-based techniques,
responsive to the range of clinical addictive problems clients
may present, and make use of the soundest scientific
concepts. Stanton Peele’s workshop will address these
