Youngsters who exhibit anti-social behaviour have great difficulty stabilising their behaviour, feelings and thinking. This means that they can often react impulsively, irritably or aggressively. They find it challenging to consider social norms, are indifferent and do not take responsibility. This can be the result of the urge to get a drug they are addicted to. In other cases, it can be due to a traumatic event from the past that the young person has not been able to cope with.

What causes anti-social behaviour?

Families significantly impact the causation of anti-social behaviour. A parent's history of anti-social behaviours, parental alcohol and drug abuse, unstable home life, absence of good parenting, physical abuse, parental instability (mental health issues/PTSD) and economic distress within the family are known to be causes of anti-social behaviour. However, a teenager's or adolescent's peers can also impact or enhance their anti-social behaviour. Especially when anti-social behaviours are present within their peer group, the chance of developing anti-social behaviour grows.

Treatment of anti-social behaviour

When teenagers or young adults exhibit persistent behavioural issues that evolve into destructive patterns, timely intervention, coaching, and guidance are essential. The dedicated team at Yes We Can Youth Clinics specialises in identifying and addressing these behavioural challenges, collaborating closely with each fellow to explore avenues for positive change. Our goal is to empower these young individuals to transcend their destructive behaviours and pave the way for a promising future.

Anti-social behaviour and medication

At Yes We Can Youth Clinics, our commitment is to nurture healing and personal development with a judicious approach to medication. We strive to minimise or, where possible, completely phase out the use of medication during treatment, focusing instead on a comprehensive recovery strategy that leverages the inherent strengths of our fellows. This process is meticulously supervised by our team of experienced psychiatrists, who provide tailored guidance and support to each individual on their journey towards sustainable recovery.
