In "The Art of Diagnosis"

you will:


Explore common diagnostic mistakes clinicians make.

Even the best, most well-seasoned clinicians make mistakes, usually because we are trying to write a diagnosis quickly. Learn the pitfalls and how to avoid them


Learn the purpose of the Mental Status Exam as a diagnostic tool.

Most clinicians use this tool incorrectly and miss the richness it can give your clinical practice. Learn to use it well.


Gather the assessment tools available in the DSM and elsewhere.

Assessment tools and standardized measures can be cost-prohibitive, but there are some useful affordable tools. 


Practice differential diagnosis through the use of vignettes.

Confidence in diagnosing comes from practice. We've got lots of vignettes to show you how to use the tools well and get to the best diagnosis(es).

A Note From Dr. Jenn... 

If you've been working in the mental health profession for more than a minute, it has probably dawned on you that we sure do put an awful lot of importance on this little label called THE ALMIGHTY DIAGNOSIS. I may have added a word in there, but you get the idea. And maybe you have felt the great pressure on clinicians to GET IT RIGHT. We have huge caseloads and tons of clinical and administrative tasks to handle each day, but somehow we need to meet with a brand new person and come up with a sound and accurate diagnosis after one session. I've never met a clinician who didn't feel great pressure to do this well at some point, if not regularly. 

But we are an intelligent and resourceful group, and so we find ways to adjust to this pressure. Sometimes we adjust well, but often we deal with this pressure by cutting corners that unknowingly lead to big mistakes. Over the years of supervising hundreds of clinicians, I kept seeing the same problematic strategies, while realizing that some great tools to help are not being taught to us. And that is what this training is all about: what are the pitfalls of diagnosis and what are the tools that can help us improve our process? It is the training that started this company, and I think you will see why it remains one of our most popular topics. Let's dig in!

Let's take a look at what's inside

Module 1: Faulty Diagnoses

Did you know there are diagnoses you see every day that are just WRONG! This first module lays out the most common faulty ones you will recognize.

Module 2: Corner Cutting

We have a lot of pressure on us to quickly come to a diagnosis with new clients and that leads to cutting corners to make the process more efficient...but at what cost?

Module 3: Assessment Tools

We've got lots and lots of assessment tools to help us get to the best diagnosis, but we often don't use them correctly. Come learn the right way to use these gems.

Module 4: Standardized Measures

Standarized Measures are typically very expensive and quickly become cost-prohibitive for the typical clinician. Here we examine several free effective measures you can use.

Module 5: Other Tools

What else can we use to get to the best diagnosis? In this module, we review some other tools to use.

Module 6: Creations

Let's put it all together by examining several clinical cases and apply the tools learned in the training to get to the best diagnosis(es) for each case.
