Conduct and Defiant Disorders

Conduct and Defiant Disorders
When a child or teen becomes a problem due to ongoing defiance of authority figures, it usually is time to seek the help of a child psychologist or family counselor. Lying, stealing, disobedience, truancy, poor grades, disrespect, repeated cursing, trouble with the law, and isolating from the family could all be signs of oppositional defiant disorder or conduct disorder. Individual child counseling, teen counseling, or family counseling is frequently needed to curb the problem behaviors before they spiral out of control or to help bring life back to a healthier balance.
