Counseling the Conduct-Disordered Child.
Conduct disorder (CD), primarily a childhood disorder, is associated with oppositional defiance disorder and antisocial personality disorder. Differentiating between the disorders requires a preview of the intensity of the disorder. There are many approaches to treating CD. The traditional approach has been psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy, although group therapy is also widely used. The social learning family intervention treatment has received a great deal of support from research. Counseling issues concerning CD which deserve examination are the association with depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. An eclectic approach appears to be the best option for the counselor who is treating the conduct disordered child. Contains 12 references. (Author/RB)
