TTAC hosted a one and a half day training on the ZERO TO THREE DC:0-5™, the Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood on April 11th and 12th, 2019. 

This comprehensive training was specifically designed for participants who are directly involved in the developmental and mental health evaluation and diagnosis of children birth to five years of age. This training provided history and background around the need for and development of a specialized diagnostic classification system for infancy and early childhood, as well as approaches to diagnosis from an Infant Mental Health perspective which is developmentally informed, relationship based, and contextual and culturally competent. Participants learned about the multi-axial approach to diagnosis as well as the contents of each axis including Axis I Clinical Disorders, Axis II Relational Context, Axis III Physical Health Conditions and Considerations, Axis IV Psychosocial Stressors, and Axis V Developmental Competence. Participants had opportunity to participate in one Community of Practice call following the training for support on use of DC:0-5™ in their practice.
