Adolescent Conduct Disorder

Treatment & Monitoring

What are the treatments for the condition?

Treatment is aimed at helping the child learn to deal with his or her emotions and impulses. It is important that the child have a predictable, secure, and nurturing environment. Parents need to see to it that the child has reasonable limits set. The child needs to know what is expected of him and what is okay and not okay to do.

Also, the child's school may set up a plan for special education services. Parents need to work closely with the school.

Counseling is needed for the child to help him deal with self-esteem, mood, anger control, and interpersonal problems. This includes helping the child understand what may be causing the behavior. It also includes teaching the child coping skills and ways to change his or her behavior.
