Behind the Veil of Conduct Disorder: Challenging Current Assumptions in Search of Strengths
Foltz, Robert
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v16 n4 p5-9 Win 2008
Advances in neuroscience are providing fresh insights about emotional and behavioral problems of children and youth. However, the flood of brain-related articles is a mixed blessing. Some popular authors on the brain, as well as certain researchers, take a very narrow view of attributing complex social problems to brain disorder. The effect is to narrow solutions to drug dosing or assume such youngsters are but fledgling psychopaths. This article looks at the sometimes excessive claims about the bio-behavioral basis of problems of youth given the labels of conduct disorder.
