Term: Conduct Disorder
Last Updated: 2016-11-21
Conduct disorder is characterized by a repetitive and persistent pattern of antisocial, aggressive, or defiant behaviour. The behaviour is more severe than ordinary childish mischief or adolescent rebelliousness and is enduring (six months or longer). Examples of these behaviours include excessive levels of fighting or bullying, cruelty to other people or animals, severe destructiveness to property, fire-setting, stealing, repeated lying, truancy from school and running away from home, unusually frequent and severe temper tantrums, and disobedience (American Psychiatric Association, 2013).
For more detailed information on how this is defined in MCHP research, please read the Conduct Disorder concept.
