"Suggesting that an alternative diagnosis was necessary to capture the spectrum of coherent symptoms of children exposed to interpersonal violence and disruptions in caregiving, van der Kolk (2005) proposed the creation of a Developmental Trauma Disorder diagnosis and described the broad domains of impairment and distress that characterize these children and adolescents. Based upon empirical data, clinical observation and experience, and two decades of literature on developmental psychopathology and the effects of ongoing childhood adverse experiences and trauma, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network subsequently devised the consensus proposed criteria for Developmental Trauma Disorder. These proposed criteria are intended to describe the most clinically significant symptoms exhibited by many children and adolescents following complex trauma. While substantial evidence led to the consensus criteria, the study of complex trauma-related difficulties in children is still evolving. The traumatic stress literature has, until recently, focused largely on the effects of single types of trauma (e.g., sexual assault or sexual abuse) and on isolated diagnoses or symptom sets, (e.g., PTSD or attributional style). With the consensus criteria it will now be possible to conduct field trials to more precisely delineate which children meet criteria for Developmental Trauma Disorder, what conditions and predispositions make children vulnerable to develop DTD, which symptoms are most unique to developmental trauma, and which are shared with children with other disorders without trauma exposure, and to further validate the diagnosis and the constructs underlying it."
