Prevention of Conduct Disorder through Early Intervention: A Social-Communicative Perspective.
Kaiser, Ann P.; Hester, Peggy P.
Behavioral Disorders, v22 n3 p117-30 May 1997
A conceptual model describing the environmental factors and parent and child characteristics that contribute to the development of conduct disorder in early childhood is proposed. Environmental stressors associated with poverty, poor parenting strategies, and child deficits in communication skills are posited to be negative factors that affect parent-child interactions. A multicomponent approach to prevention is suggested. (Author/DB)
