DC:0-3R Introductory Training — Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood
Day 1 will provide an overview of the Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood, Revised (DC:0-3R), which was created to address the lack of and need for an appropriate system for diagnosing children in the first three years of life. This diagnostic system focuses on young children’s experience, particularly their emotional and developmental challenges and adaptive functioning. Day 2 will be an Intensive Case Discussion of the classification system and its five axes. The case example will illustrate how DC:0-3R can be utilized in clinical assessments. Dr. Karen Frankel and other DC:0-3R Trainers will present. The full Introductory Training will be useful to psychologists, child psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals who plan to implement the system in their practice. One day registration is available. Reduced rates for students and interns is also available. Registration deadline: August 23, 2011.
