Experts at the Asheville Jung Center are planning a webinar discussing new material that will be released in DSM-5 including changes to the diagnosis of Anxiety Disorder.



Separation Anxiety Disorder and Selective Mutism are no longer in a separate

There are several changes regarding Anxiety in DSM-5. The Anxiety section has lost a number of its components. An Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Group has been split off from the anxiety section and made into its own diagnostic group. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been given to a newly formed group called Trauma and Stressor Related Disorders. The anxiety section has also uncoupled the diagnoses of Panic and Agoraphobia. The Asheville Jung Center was founded in 2008 to advance the psychology of Carl Jung and promote an international Jungian community. It is affiliated with innerQuest Psychiatry and Counseling, a regional psychiatrist group.

On the other hand, the Anxiety section has also gained two diagnoses. Separation Anxiety Disorder and Selective Mutism are no longer in a separate “Disorders of Childhood”, but rather moved into the Anxiety section.
