Excerpt

CD is among the most frequently made and probably overused diagnoses in child psychiatry. Despite this, many individuals with this disorder are probably undertreated. Conduct disorder describes a pattern of behavior that demonstrates disregard for societal norms and the rights of others. Subtyping based on the individual's age of initial symptom presentation helps determine prognosis. Severity is based on the number of symptoms and the amount of harm induced. Numerous questionably related symptoms are listed in the diagnostic schema and range in gravity from curfew violations to rape (Table 21–22).
