Adolescent Conduct Disorder

Prevention & Expectations

What can be done to prevent the condition?

A nurturing home environment is the best prevention for conduct disorders in adolescents. Children from homes with a good balance of love and discipline are less likely to develop this disorder than are those from abusive, permissive, or neglectful homes.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Children with this disorder are at risk for developing a personality disorder. Serious problems in school and with the law often develop as well.

What are the risks to others?

Because children with this disorder tend to be aggressive, they may cause harm to others.
