Child psychopathology is the manifestation of psychological disorders in children and adolescents. Oppositional defiant disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder are examples of child psychopathology. The full list of formal diagnostic codes and classification of mental health disorders can be found in the DSM-5; this is the same manual which covers adult psychopathology, but it has certain diagnoses specific to children and adolescents. Counselors, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists who work with mentally ill children are informed by research in developmental psychology, developmental psychopathology, clinical child psychology, and family systems. In addition to DSM-5, the DC 0-3 or Diagnostic Classification 0-3 is used to assess mental health problems in infants. Selma Fraiberg was one pioneer in the field of Infant mental health.
