International working groups participated in empirical exercises to test the reliability and validity of the proposed schemes (Rutter, Shaffer, & Shepherd, 1975). Out of these discussions came a proposal to move from a unidimensional scheme to a multiaxial framework. 1. Multiaxial Classifications The WHO seminars ran into difficulties over what to do when a child presents with more than one disorder, particularly where mental retardation is also present. In addition, in view of the close relationship between physical disorders and increased rates of psychiatric disorders, the participants felt the need to code biological factors separately.
As noted earlier, however, some decisions are still made in relation to theories about particular disorders. Both systems explicitly categorize the disorders and not the children; both adhere to the emerging principles of multiaxial classificatory schemes (Rutter & Shaffer, 1980). As Quay (1980) notes, the two systems recognize four major "syndromes": hyperkinetic, unsocialized-aggressive, socialized-aggressive, and anxiety-withdrawal disorders. They differ in how they treat hyperactivity. ICD-9 recognizes three separate hyperkinetic categories; 21 EPIDEMIOLOGY OF CHILD PSYCHOPATHOLOGY DSM-III emphasizes attention deficits.
Like ICD-9, DSM-III is a multiaxial system of classification. As Quay (1980) points out, DSM-III consists of three major categoriesattention deficit disorders, conduct disorders, and anxiety disorderswith a lengthy list of more specific, isolated disorders. Comparing Tables 1 and 3, it is immediately apparent that there are close similarities between the two systems. It is not possible in the space of the present chapter to compare them at the level of operational criteria. This degree of concordance can be taken as reassuring in that two groups of professionals are moving toward a common classification system.
