New Training Opportunity for NC Early Childhood Practitioners

ZERO TO THREE’s Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC:0-5)

Screening, assessment, and diagnosis of mental health and developmental disorders in infants and young children is a complex process that requires dyadic assessment of caregivers and children, recognition of the different developmental expressions of mental health symptoms, and awareness of cultural considerations in diagnosing young children.

ZERO TO THREE’s Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC:0-5) is the only developmentally sensitive classification system for diagnosing mental health and developmental disorders in infants and toddlers. This multiaxial system (compatible for use in concert with the DSM5 and ICD-10) is a critical resource for mental health clinicians, counselors, physicians, early interventionists, educators, and researchers alike.

Who  Advanced practitioners such as mental health clinicians, psychiatrists, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and early intervention specialists whose work with infants, young children, and their families involves clinical assessment, diagnosis, and case formulation
