Conduct disorder

/kon-duhkt/ /dis·or·der/


Conduct disorder is a self-destructive, childhood behavior, characterized by aggressive and self-harming activities that cause serious disruptions in a child’s life. Conduct disorder results in negative connotations in every aspect of a child’s life: school, home, and community ( church, social clubs, etc.) As this behavior is obvious to others, it should be easily diagnosed. After diagnosis, conduct disorder requires immediate, intensive psychiatric treatment. 

All children display some sort of rebellious traits, at one time or another. However, when a child consistently shows outright rebellion and disrespect, regardless of environmental structure, it is necessary for the child to undergo psychiatric treatment for their behaviors.
