Description

Disruptive behavior disorders (DBD) are a group of behavioral disorders defined by ongoing patterns of hostile and defiant behaviors that children and adolescents direct towards any type of authority figure. While all children go through periods of testing limits by acting out in negative behaviors, children with DBD participate in these behaviors to such an extreme that it affects their everyday lives, as well as the lives of those around them. The two most common forms of disruptive behavior disorders are oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and conduct disorder. Conduct disorder is characterized by persistent and repetitive behaviors that involve violating the basic rights of other human beings and severely breaking rules set to enforce age-appropriate societal norms. Oppositional defiant disorder is similar to conduct disorder but usually presents itself earlier in a child’s life. ODD is characterized by patterns of hostile, defiant, and disobedient behaviors directed at parents, teachers, and any other type of authority figure. Studies have shown that conduct disorder affects 1-4% of adolescents in the United States and oppositional defiant disorder is estimated to develop in approximately 10.2% of children. The presence of DBD is also known to be more prevalent in boys than it is in girls.

There is a growing need to understand why children and adolescent exhibit signs of hostility, defiance, and isolation. Not Just Bad Kids: The Adversity and Disruptive Behavior Link explores the theory that all behavior makes sense in context. If you understand a person’s frame of reference – their background, history, and experience – you can imagine what might be driving their behavior. The authors set the stage by describing the social, cultural, and environmental factors that shape the lives of many of these youth, including early childhood attachment which sets the foundation of how they interact with authority figures. This book also explores the devastating consequences that chronic, repeated trauma can have on a child at every level, from the biological to their internal experience to the way they interact with the world. By examining these factors the reader can see the interrelationship of attachment problems, chronic trauma, and disruptive behavior have with one another. Not Just Bad Kids: The Adversity and Disruptive Behavior Link provide the readers with current best practices for intervention and treatment in youth with disruptive behaviors, ultimately leading to resilience in our youth, their families, and our communities.
