We can help your daughter if she’s struggling with Conduct Disorder, a condition of recurring and relentless violations of social norms and of others’ rights. Does she display physical or verbal antagonism, bullying towards people and animals, damaging actions, dishonesty, absenteeism, and destruction of property or thievery? The term refers to the distinction between a girl’s “typical” acting out and major misbehavior.
This is Why We’re Here.
If your girl doesn’t get treated for Conduct Disorder, she might find herself facing issues of juvenile delinquency that might involve school or even legal authorities. She might be blamed for behavior that she cannot control.
Treatment centers primarily on altering the behavior patterns that bolster bad behavior. 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.
