DC:0-5™ Virtual Training for Clinicians
This training is only open to Michigan professionals


This virtual comprehensive training on DC:0- 5™ Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood targets clinicians and leaders from fields of mental health, health and early intervention. This training provides history and background around the need and development of a specialized diagnostic classification system for infancy and early childhood, approaches in diagnosis from an Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health perspective which is developmentally informed, relationship based, contextual and culturally competent. Participants will learn about the multi-axial approach to diagnosis as well understanding the contents of each axis including Axis I clinical disorders.

This virtual format allows clinicians to have in-depth knowledge of the approach and content of DC:0-5 and to practice application of this new nosology with the support of peers and Expert Faculty through activities and case-based learning which support their use of the many tools included in DC:0-5. Clinicians will learn content, approach and key highlights of understanding and applying each of the axes in DC:0-5 in diagnostic classification. There will be activities, video clips and case-based discussions to apply the knowledge shared. There will be a focus on the use of a full case report in having clinicians formulate a multiaxial, diagnostic summary using DC:0-5. Discussions around differential diagnosis and comorbidity will be included in this portion of the training. MI-AIMH will offer optional follow-up learning opportunities with attendees.

Suggested Participants: Michigan clinicians from the fields of early childhood mental health, health and early intervention who are responsible for diagnosis or participate in diagnostic treatment teams.
