Abstract [en]

The study focuses on Infant Mental Health data from an outpatient psychiatric clinic using the “Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health

and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood” (DC 0-3) and parental questionnaires, CBCL and ITSC. In total, 138 infants

(aged 0–3) went through the diagnostic procedure. Sixty-eight per cent were diagnosed within Axis I, with regulatory disorder, disorder of

affect and traumatic stress disorder being the most frequent diagnoses. In addition, 48% were classified as having a relationship disorder according

to Axis II, with an additional 40% being considered to be at risk of developing a relationship disorder. The mothers’ and fathers’ ratings of

their children’s externalized and sensitivity problems were in agreement with the clinicians, but the ratings of internalized problems as well as

relationship problems presented a more complex pattern.
