DC:05 captures new findings relevant to diagnosis in young children and addresses unresolved issues in the field since DC:03R was published in 2005. DC:05 is designed to help mental health and other professionals: ¢¢ recognize mental health and developmental challenges in infants and young children, through 5 years old; ¢¢ understand that relationships and psychosocial stressors contribute to mental health and developmental disorders and incorporate contextual factors into the diagnostic process; ¢¢ use diagnostic criteria effectively for classification, case formulation, and intervention; and ¢¢ facilitate research on mental health disorders in infants and young children.

Planning a baby's room involves not only providing a pretty nursery but also tailoring your living space to the new arrival's needs. "Babies' Rooms" by Judith Wilson shows how to tread a fine line between tasteful decoration and the requirements of a small child, and address issues of practicality and safety, plus planning for future development.The book begins by looking at sleeping places for babies in the parents' bedroom. Next are inspirational chapters on decoration, lighting and furniture for unisex nurseries, plus fun and funky ideas for girls' and boys' rooms, and advice on the needs of planning a shared bedroom for a baby and a toddler or for twins. There are also chapters on adapting a bathroom for little ones, creating stimulating and safe eating and play spaces, and devising brilliant storage. The book concludes with useful checklists, a question and answer section, and an extensive resources list.

Zero to Three

The poems in Zero to Three mark both the change in the child and in the father, who is also a son himself.

What started out as a way to address dealing with parenting and, in particular, fatherhood, became a series of poems focused on familial roles and situations that are difficult to articulate, even among family members. The poems in Zero to Three mark both the change in the child and in the father, who is also a son himself. The term “zero to three” derives from the developmental period that many clinicians and pediatricians believe is the most fundamental phase for children whose delicate brains are undergoing drastic and formative change. Research also shows that parents undergo formative change alongside their children during this period from conception to toddler age. These poems do not intend to offer a definitive stance on parenting or fatherhood but, rather, to capture an emotional gestational period that extends beyond the womb and exceeds beyond the grave. They celebrate pop culture and family, as well as lament the anguish and frustration of a parent losing his temper or a parent losing a parent. Ultimately, these poems attempt to sing and dance in the fact that parenting is a wonderful mystery to witness and experience.

Published in 1994, Zero to Three's Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC:0-3) was the first developmentally based system for diagnosing mental health and developmental disorders in infants and toddlers. Its diagnostic categories reflected the consensus of a multidisciplinary group of experts in early childhood development and mental health. DC:0-3R enhances your ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat mental health problems in the earliest years of identifying and describing disorders not addressed in other classification systems and by pointing the way to effective intervention approaches. Mental health clinicians, counselors, physicians, nurses, early interventionists, early childhood educators, and researches will find DC:0-3R to be an indispensable guide to evaluation and treatment planning with infants, toddlers, and their families in a wide range of settings.

The diagnostic framework presented in this manual seeks to address the need for a systematic, multi-disciplinary, developmentally based approach to the classification of mental health and developmental difficulties in the first 4 years of life. An introduction discusses clinical approaches to assessment and diagnosis, gives an overview of the classification system, and offers guidelines for diagnosis. In the classification, the focus is on developmental issues with dynamic processes, such as relationships and developmentally based conceptualizations of adaptive patterns of central importance. The diagnostic framework consists of five axes: Axis 1--primary classification (e.g., disorders of affect, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, sleeping and eating behavior disorders); Axis 2--relationship disorder classification (e.g., overinvolvement, underinvolvement, anger/hostility, abuse, sexual abuse); Axis 3--medical and developmental disorders and conditions; Axis 4--psychosocial stressors; and Axis 5--functional emotional developmental level. Appendices include the Parent-Infant Relationship Global Assessment Scale, descriptive criteria for patterns of multi-system developmental disorder, and an outline of the classification system. Seventeen case vignettes are provided, as is an index to primary diagnoses of cases. (CR)

Nanomaterials are defined as materials in which at least one length dimension is below 100 nanometers. In this size regime, these materials exhibit particular - and tunable - optical, electrical or mechanical properties that are not present at the macro-scale. This opens up the possibility for a plethora of applications at the interface of materials, chemistry, physics and biology, many of which have already entered the commercial realm. When nanomaterials are blended with other materials not necessarily in the nanometer regime, the resulting nanocomposites can exhibit dramatically different properties than the bulk material alone, leading to an enhanced performance in terms of, for example, increased thermal and mechanical stability. This book presents the synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials and nanocomposites, covering zero-dimensional, elemental nanoparticles, one-dimensional materials such as nanorods and nanowhiskers, two-dimensional materials such as graphene and boron nitride as well as three-dimensional materials such as fullerenes, polyhedral oligomers and zeolites, complemented by bio-based nanomaterials, e.g., cellulose, chitin, starch and proteins. Introductory chapters on the state-of-the-art of nanomaterial research and the chemistry and physics in nanoscience and nanotechnology round off the book.
