Adapting Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness for a child with Conduct Disorder: A Case Study
Dr Ashna Gupta
Most children exhibit maladaptive and disruptive behavior at times due to either stress or fleet of events at home, school or their communities. According to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA; Mataix-Cols et al., 2010) Conduct Disorder (CD) is one of the important forms of mental health problems in children and adolescents. It is typically assigned to individuals under age 18, who tend to violate the basic rights of others or not conform to the age appropriate societal norms (APA, 2015). Children with CD often demonstrate behaviors that include aggression towards people and/or animals, deceitfulness, destruction of property, theft, and serious violation of norms (Murphy, Cowan, & Sederer, 2001). It is a disabling disorder that must cause clinically significant impairment in social, academic, or occupational functioning (APA, 2013).
