This is an excellent article with a comprehensive overview of the signs and symptoms that you might see in a child with Conduct Disorder. It reports on a variety of factors that may increase the likelihood of a child developing conduct disorder such as abuse, brain damage, neglect as well as genetic vulnerability and school problems. This article would be an excellent resource for parents of a newly diagnosed child as it highlights may important features of the diagnosis. It gives particular attention to the importance of early intervention with a child and family dealing with this diagnosis. Treatment will likely need to be comprehensive and long term. The risks of not accessing early interventions is likely to be lifelong problems well into adulthood with difficulties in  the ability of maintaining a job or problems with illegal or antisocial activities. 

Treatments for Conduct Disorder are likely to include behavior modification, psychotherapy, and medications as well as therapy for the whole family system and education for all those that interact with these children. 

 

Some key features of Conduct Disorder to be aware of are the likelihood of aggression and harm towards people and animals. Destruction of property by fire or other means is also a common feature of CD.

Psychopathic Traits Seen in Children’s Brains

Psychopathic Traits Seen in Children’s Brains | Treating Conduct Disorder with Adventure Therapy | Scoop.it
Brain patterns could warn of vulnerability to psychopathy.

 

Children with severe behavioral problems have a suppressed response to others' pain, according to new brain-scan research.

 

Researchers examined brain scans of kids with conduct disorder, which is marked by aggression, cruelty to others and anti-social behavior. Some kids with conduct disorder also display what psychologists call "callous-unemotional traits," which means they lack guilt and empathy.

This is an interesting report on current neuroscience research into the brains of children with conduct disorder. Children with Conduct Disorder (CD) often display "callous-unemotional traits", which means that they do not feel guilt or empathy towards other individuals. It is reported that children with CD have a suppressed response to others' pain. The brain scans performed on children with Conduct disorder and those without show a reduction in the brain activity of kids with conduct disorder when they view images of pain. This type of brain pattern appears to show a vulnerability to developing a psychopathy later on. 

It is important to note that these kids are not destined to psychopathy, but just show a vulnerability. The goal of this type of research is to help determine why these kids are vulnerable in hopes of being able to treat them more effectively.

This  article is in agreement with my personal theory that children exhibiting psychopathic traits early will often end up with adult substance abuse and potential violence problems. Our textbook shows data and research to back this theory up. (Meyers, 2014)
