Zero to Three DC: 0-5 Webinar Series

This offering combines a series of four 90 minute webinars for a single cohort of mental health clinicians aimed at introducing the key content and approach of the DC:0-5 with an emphasis on how to best apply this approach in practice.  The following is an outline of the topics for this webinar series:

  • DC:0-5 Overview -January 19, 2018 – This initial webinar will serve as an overview of DC:0-5 Diagnosis and classification of mental health and developmental disorders of infancy and early childhood (DC:0-5) providing a foundation of this revised nosology for professionals who will be using DC:0-5 in their clinical work.  This will promote familiarity with the background, approach and general format of the new DC:0-5.
  • Axis I – Key Elements -February 2, 2018 – This webinar will focus on key changes in Axis I Clinical Disorders and highlight examples of new disorders from several of the diagnostic categories in Axis I.
  • Axis II -February 16, 2018 – An Expanded Approach to Understand Relational Context – This webinar will focus on changes on Axis II Relational Context and will illustrate how to rate the adaptation of the key dyadic relationships of the infant/young child and how to rate the adaptation of the young child in relation to the caregiving (family) environment.
  • Axis V and Implications for Best Practice -March 2, 2018 – The final webinar in the series will provide an overview of the new conceptualization of Axis V Developmental Competence and the use of the Developmental Milestones Table in Appendix A in the DC:0-5 Manual.  The webinar will also include a brief overview of the relationship between DC;0-5, DSM-5 and ICD-10 and explore the advantages and disadvantages to using a crosswalk across these systems and ways to consider applying approaches and key content of DC:0-5 in clinical practice such as intake interviewing, assessments and treatment planning.
