What non-drug treatments help conduct disorder?

Multisystemic treatment approaches have the best evidence base in the treatment of conduct disorder. These involve a multidisciplinary team (generally including psychiatrists, neuro-psychologists, social workers, family therapists, nurses, educators, etc.) and an individually tailored treatment plan. Programs derived from Parent Management Training in group or individual settings, have shown efficacy in controlled trials to reduce oppositional behaviors. Their therapeutic impact is greater in ODD that CD and in pre-pubertal children versus adolescents. Social skills training and cognitive skills training, as well as family therapy can be part of a multisystemic treatment plan.
