Conduct Disorders

Oppositional Defiance Disorder

It is not uncommon for children and teens to have behaviour-related problems at some time during their development. However, the behaviour is considered to be a conduct disorder or ODD when it is long-lasting and when it violates the rights of others, goes against accepted norms of behaviour and disrupts the child's or family's everyday life.
