Description: 

Some mental health counselors erroneously believe that once they've slapped a disorder label on an assessment, they've done their due diligence in formulating a DSM-5 diagnosis, but they're missing out on an important and critical aspect of diagnosis-- z-codes! What are "z-codes?" If they aren't disorders, will insurance companies pay for them? If not, then why are they important? A comprehensive list of z-codes is an integral part of diagnosis. When clinicians learn to efficiently and effectively list z-codes, they can save themselves and others a great deal of time, write more meaningful treatment plans, more easily identify what's missing in their interventions, and thereby improve client outcomes. Whether you're a therapist seeking to improve your clinical skills or a forensic evaluator who wants to write a more effective evaluation report, this training should equip you to start having fun with z-codes.
