Abstract

Conduct disorder in children presents significant challenges in its effects on families, teachers, and care-givers and in its treatment. Cognitive-behavioural therapies are among the better researched treatments for conduct disorder. Cognitive-behavioural therapies may be limited in their effectiveness because they were designed for adolescents rather than children. Child-versions of cognitive-behavioural therapies that train in prosocial behaviours may hold greater promise in the prevention and management of conduct disorder in children. Children with conduct disorder comorbid with other child disorders, and reactive aggression may derive greater benefit from multimodal interventions involving medication and psychosocial interventions.
