As part of the Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five Initiative (NYS B5), the New York Center for Child Development (NYCCD) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), in collaboration with CTAC, are pleased to announce the next series of our upcoming online trainings on the ZERO TO THREE DC:0-5™ Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood.

DC:0-5 is a research and clinically-informed multi-axial diagnostic system that provides a comprehensive guide to the clinical disorders found in young children. New York State plans to make DC:0-5 the recommended diagnostic tool for all children birth to age 5.

This comprehensive training is 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. Please note that these offerings are intended for New York State clinicians only.

If you are interested in learning more about DC:0-5, please check out the recording HERE of our DC:0-5 overview webinar presented by Kathleen Mulrooney from ZERO TO THREE.

This training provides 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, contextual and culturally competent.

Participants will learn about the multi-axial classification system and gain an understanding of each: 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 will have the opportunity to participate in Community of Practice calls following the training for support on use of DC:0-5™ in their practice.   

Participation in this training is free of charge and participants will receive a complimentary DC:0-5 electronic manual. Participants are also welcome to purchase a print copy of the manual HERE. Enter the code DC05REG2020 at checkout to get the discounted member price.
