Event DescriptionThe presentation will review the current status of conduct problems (oppositional aggressive, violent, and antisocial behavior) among children and adolescents. The topics include what is known about the key features of children and their families, risk factors and causes, and the course and long-term outcomes. Parent management training, an evidence-based treatment, will be presented in detail to convey its use clinical as well as its research underpinnings. Case vignettes, illustrations of the treatment sessions, and evidence in support of the treatment will be reviewed. Emphasis will be on principles and procedures and how they are applied to achieve change. Broader issues that therapy with children and families raise will be mentioned such as disseminating treatment to professionals and the public, providing services for seriously disturbed youth more generally, and exerting impact on social influences that promote many of the problems mental health professionals are laboring to alleviate.
