Support with Conduct Disorders in Children

If you are concerned that your child may have a Conduct Disorder or if your School or GP has suggested that there could be an issue then Clinical Partners will be able to help you.

When a Child or Teenager's behaviour become unmanageable it is important to seek professional help. Children with Conduct Disorder can often go on to develop Personality Disorders and have issues with Drugs, Alcohol and Sex, Psychosis, Violence and Criminal Activity – but with the right care and treatment this can be avoided.

If you are concerned in any way please call us on0203 326 9160 and we can arrange for an initial private assessment for your child.

Signs of and treatment for Conduct Disorder

Children with conduct disorder tend to be impulsive, hard to control, and not concerned about the feelings of other people. The often make no effort to hide their aggressive behaviour and have a hard time making real friends.
Symptoms may include:

  • Breaking rules without obvious reason and refuse to follow rules
  • Cruel or aggressive behaviour toward people or animals (for example: bullying, fighting, using dangerous weapons, forcing sexual activity)
  • Failure to attend school (truancy -- beginning before age 13)
  • Heavy drinking and/or heavy illicit drug use
  • Intentionally setting fires
  • Lying to get a favour or avoid things they have to do
  • Running away
  • Vandalising or destroying property
  • Stealing
  • Little remorse or guilt when they are found out
  • Failing at school
  • Angry with others and blaming others

This activity obviously not only has a huge impact on the child but also causes huge distress to family and friends and schools – so seeking professional help is important.

How Clinical Partners can help with Child Conduct Disorder

Our team of leading Child Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Family Therapists and Educational Psychologists have experience in helping children and Teenagers with Conduct Disorder as well as offering help and support for the families.

We are able to offer assessments and treatment for Conduct Disorder and our Educational Psychologist will also be able to help with SEN and IEP's if necessary and help create a plan with your school.

We also work with the family in helping deal with the issues and help parents learn techniques to help manage their Children's problem behaviour.

If you have considered "Wilderness Programmes" or "Boot Camps" which are often recommended for Children with Conduct Disorder – we can help advice you in this areas. Some of the camps can offer therapies that can actually be more harmful – hence professional guidance is recommended before making a decision on this sort of treatment.
