What is conduct disorder (CD)?
Teenagers and young adults with CD often do not know how to show respect to others. This is expressed in bullying, threatening, intimidating and deceiving. Young people with ODD show rebellious behaviour, but those with CD show behaviour that crosses the line of what is socially accepted, combined with violence and vile behaviour towards ohters. Young people with CD have difficulty regulating feelings, changes and emotions.
Symptoms of CD
Young people with CD bully, threaten and intimidate others with great regularity. In some cases, young people with CD abuse animals or even force others to perform sexual acts. Stealing and vandalism are also characteristics of teenagers and young adults struggling with CD.
How we treat CD
At Yes We Can Youth Clinics we help young people to deal with CD in a pleasant way and to function positively in society. We do not look at the 'stamps' that young people were given in the past or at the things that young people 'cannot do' or 'do wrong', but rather at their talents and qualities. Yes We Can Youth Clinics strives to reduce any medication that the teenager or young adult already receives to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
