Anti-Social Youth & Conduct Disorders

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This course zeros in on the youngster who may damage property, defy authority, steal, lie, torment peers, manipulate and hurt others, disrupt classrooms, make threats, and break laws and rules. In the extreme, some of these youth may even engage in fire setting, sexual assault, or school violence. Anti-social youth and conduct disorders are among the hardest-to-manage youngsters. The conventional methods that work with other youngsters usually fail with this population. For this reason, many youth professionals become profoundly discouraged and frustrated, feeling that there is nothing that they can do to successfully manage this type of out-of-control youngster. The methods offered in this course are intended to be the tailored tools that you need to manage and help anti-social and conduct disordered youth and children.
