Description

With a unique focus on information and insight that can be immediately implemented into practice, this book provides an essential understanding of how disruptive behavior disorder (DBD) is characterized, its early markers and etiology, and empirically-based treatment for the disorder. The book is split into four sections, with the first covering features and assessment of various DBDs, including oppositional-defiant disorder, conduct disorder, and antisocial personality disorder. The second part looks at psychological markers of externalizing problems, such as irritability and anger, callous-unemotional traits, cognitive attribution bias, and sensation-seeking and risk-taking. The third section looks at common elements of effective evidence-based treatments for DBD for behavioral treatments, cognitive therapies, and family and community therapies. Finally, the fourth section looks at new and emerging insight in the prevention and treatment of DBD.
