Youngsters who exhibit anti-social behaviour have great difficulty with stability in their behaviour, feeling and thinking. This means that they can often react impulsively, irritably or aggressively. They find it difficult to take social norms into account, 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 greatly impact the causation of anti-social behaviour. A parent 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. But also a teenager's or adolescent's peers can 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

If the teenager or young adult starts to show structural forms of behavioural problems and this will therefore take on destructive forms, a solution is. This requires adequate and targeted interpretation, coaching and guidance. The Yes We Can Youth Clinics team can map these behavioural problems for and with the fellow, and then together look for ways and possibilities with which teenagers and adolescents can leave their destructive life behind forever and start having a wonderful future. Yes We Can Youth Clinics strives to reduce any medication that the youngsters already receive to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
