The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fifth Edition) (DSM-V) is scheduled for publication in May 2013. There are currently no changes planned for the ASWB exam to reflect the new edition.
Although ASWB is reviewing the implications of the DSM-V changes and how they may affect the current exam, ASWB has stated that no changes will be made to the exam before January 2015. Until further information is released, the ASWB exam will continue to test on the DSM-IV-TR.
At such time as exam changes are announced, our study guides will be revised accordingly. For current study materials to help you pass your social work licensing exam, please visit the Social Work Guide site.
