Is your teen showing physical or verbal antagonism, bullying people and pets, destroying property, being deceitful or a truant? Conduct Disorder refers to the distinction between an adolescent’s “typical” acting out and major misbehavior.
Wolf Creek Academy – Here to Help your Teen with Conduct Disorder
If help isn’t provided, your child might find him/herself facing issues of juvenile delinquency and misconduct that might involve school or even legal authorities. There might even be blame assigned for behaviors that cannot be controlled. Treatment primarily focuses on altering the behavior patterns that reinforce bad behavior. Unlike other disorders, Conduct Disorder therapy can typically include the parents as well as your teen. There is no one acceptable resolution to Conduct Disorder, but many programs include training parents to more effectively discipline and reward good 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.
