Arrive in Rome early for a special, comprehensive training on ZERO TO THREE’s groundbreaking infant and early childhood mental health diagnostic system. Taking place the day before the 2018 WAIMH World Congress begins, this exclusive offering is a convenient and cost-effective way for WAIMH attendees to understand and explore the benefits of the DC:0-5 diagnostic classification.

This comprehensive training on DC:0-5 Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood is designed for clinicians from the fields of mental health, health, early intervention and related advanced practitioners, who are responsible for supporting diagnosis of infants and young children.

The extended-day format for this training allows participants to learn key knowledge about the approach and contents of DC:0-5 during the day, as well as applying knowledge through case based examples and discussions through a working dinner and facilitated discussion.
