The second edition of Conduct Disorders in Childhood and Adolescence describes the nature of conduct disorder and what is now known based on recent research and clinical work. Incorporating the most important research to appear since the first edition, Alan Kazdin effectively draws together his findings from child development, epidemiology, psychology, psychiatry, and criminology, among other areas of work, to discuss integral topics such as sex differences in development, psychiatric diagnosis, child-rearing practices, parent psychopathology, and impact of heredity and environment. Discussion of key risk factors, treatment, and prevention add to the thoroughness of this volume. To cap off the new edition, the author examines recent advances in diagnosing and delineating subtypes of dysfunction as well as the gains made in evidence for treatment and prevention. This concise yet comprehensive view of conduct disorder in children and adolescents points to new areas of work and presents new models and approaches to create an invaluable resource.

Discusses sex differences in development/child-rearing practices/psychiatric diagnosis/parent psychopathology/etc.
