Conduct Disorder

Conduct disorder is a severe emotional and behavioral condition usually found among children and teenagers. An affected child may exhibit a habit of violent and aggressive behavior and have trouble adhering to regulations. Children and teenagers frequently experience issues with their conduct at various stages of development. However, the behavior is seen as a conduct disorder when it is persistent, interferes with the rights of other individuals, deviates from recognized social norms, and when it affects the child’s or family’s normal daily activities.

Therapy helps in conduct disorder by addressing the root causes of the problematic behaviors, imparting coping mechanisms for controlling emotions and impulses, enhancing social and communication skills, and encouraging constructive attitudes and actions. Additionally, therapy can offer a secure setting where the patient can express themselves while simultaneously getting support and guidance from a mental health professional. All things considered, counseling can assist those who suffer from conduct disorder in learning to control their behaviors and have healthier, more satisfying lives.
