Infant mental health training (overview)

The Washington State Legislature created Mental health assessment for young children to support infant and early childhood providers in using best practices with very young children, including training in the Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC: 0–5).

The DC: 0-5 uses a developmentally-appropriate and contextually-grounded approach to consider how relationships and environmental factors contribute to the child’s social and emotional well-being and developmental progress. The Overview DC: 0-5 training will provide participants with an overview of the approach and is particularly helpful for perinatal, infant, and early childhood professionals in understanding the importance of developmentally appropriate diagnostic practices.
