Conduct disorder is the most prevalent emotional disorder in children and adolescents, and therefore requires special attention from clinicians. Conduct Disorders in Children and Adolescents is first in providing a comprehensive and balanced view of this field. It addresses the biological, psychological, and interpersonal aspects of aggressive behavior and conduct disorders, and includes the most current clinical research. Conduct Disorders in Children and Adolescents first examines the phenomenology, etiology, and diagnosis of conduct disorders, then describes therapeutic and preventive interventions. It covers the range of treatments now available, including individual, family, group, and behavior therapy; hospitalization; and residential treatment. Special chapters address the new therapeutic interventions of pharmacotherapy and parent management training.
