Here, take a journey through one of the most costly psychiatric disorders: Conduct Disorder. Explore why children in the same environment as a child with conduct disorder are more affected than the child diagnosed with the problem. Delve into the reasons most practicing clinicians of conduct disorder are influenced more so by the persons they treat and their desire to refine theoretical understanding of others and improve their methods of helping than by empirical research. With a focus on the main population for which conduct disorder is a problem-children and adolescents - this book not only looks at the history of diagnosis in this population, but uses one case study to investigate several up-to-date treatments used by thirteen practicing clinicians from different theoretical orientations. A discussion of what these clinicians believe are the best treatments for this population is included.
