Conduct Disorder Q & A

What is Conduct Disorder?

Conduct disorder is a serious behavioral and emotional condition characterized by persistent patterns of aggressive and antisocial behaviors. Children with conduct disorder often exhibit a disregard for others’ rights and feelings, which can significantly impact their relationships and functioning at home, in school, and within the community.

Recognizing Symptoms and Behavioral Patterns

Children with conduct disorder may display a range of troubling behaviors, including aggression towards people and animals, destruction of property, deceitfulness, theft, serious rule violations, and a lack of empathy for others’ emotions or well-being. These behaviors often result in severe disruptions in the child’s academic and social life.

Identifying Risk Factors and Causes

Several factors, including genetic predisposition, environmental influences, trauma, and a history of maltreatment, can contribute to the development of conduct disorder. Understanding these risk factors is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment planning.

Comprehensive Treatment Strategies

Our approach to treating conduct disorder involves a comprehensive and tailored strategy that may include various therapeutic modalities, behavior management techniques, and family-based interventions. Through individualized care plans, we aim to address the underlying factors contributing to the conduct disorder and empower children to develop healthy coping mechanisms and positive social skills.
