What is Conduct Disorder ?
Does your daughter skip school, display verbal or physical hostility, bully animals or people, lie or steal or destroy property? Conduct Disorder is a condition of recurring violations of social norms and others’ rights and distinguishes between a teen’s “typical” acting out and major misbehavior.
New Lifehouse – How We Can Help Your Girl with Conduct Disorder
Without treatment, your girl might find herself faced with issues of juvenile delinquency and misconduct with school or even legal authorities. She might be found responsible for behavioral actions that are out of her control.
Treatment for Conduct Disorder would focus on breaking the patterns that reinforce bad behavior.
Unlike other disorders, Conduct Disorder therapy can include the parents as well as your teen. There is no distinct resolution to Conduct Disorder, but many programs include guiding parents to more effectively discipline and reward positive behavior in an attempt to shatter the cycle of bad actions leading to more bad actions.
Conduct Disorder is thought to be a possible precursor to Antisocial Personality Disorder. Studies have indicated a preliminary link between different brain functions and lowered levels of compassion shown by those experiencing conduct disorders.
