Overview

For many years, the fields of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD) and aggressive and antisocial behaviour, have been researched independently of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and hyperactive, impulsive and inattentive behaviour. In reality, they often occur simultaneously, and their separation has led to a hampering of our understanding of the two groups. However, the last decade has seen an integration of the research fields, essential for an accurate understanding of these disorders, and information on this topic has grown rapidly. Focusing on children aged 3 to 14 years, this book offers a concise and comprehensive overview of empirical knowledge and associated clinical information on ODD and CD; it does so with respect to aetiology, assessment and treatment, and to neurobiological factors in these disorders. In reviewing the literature, the authors pay particular attention to recently published studies and meta-analyses, without neglecting older high quality studies. Written as a guide for professionals, this book is useful as a succinct overview of the field for both students and researchers; it is also of value to advanced researchers, offering essential information on topics which may not be their primary focus of interest and expertise.
