Evaluate a teenager’s risk for conduct disorder with a validated screening questionnaire.
Conduct disorder (CD) is a mental disorder diagnosed in childhood or adolescence that presents itself through a repetitive and persistent pattern of behavior in which the basic rights of others or major age-appropriate norms are violated.
Conduct Disorder often presents with aggression to people and animals, destruction of property, theft, and serious violation of the rules. It is often associated with ADHD and substance use disorders. It leads to Antisocial Personality Disorder in 25-40% of cases.
Conduct Disorder can be treated through a multisystemic approach, integrating individual, family, and community interventions.
