Conduct disorders in children -- Treatment; Conduct disorders in adolescence;
This research paper examined four types of treatment. Functional Family Therapy, Multisystemic, Parent Management Training and Problem-Solving Skill Training, for youth with Conduct Disorder. It looked at the core of how each treatment was facilitated along with some of the strengths and weakness of the different therapies. This paper also explored the cost-effectiveness rate for the different therapies. It suggested that less severe cases might benefit from some fom1 of Parent Management Training or Functional Family Therapy. Cases that are more difficult may require Multisystemic Therapy (Brosnan & Carr, 2000). Problem-Solving Skills Training should be used with Parent Management Training to improve its success rate (Kazdin. Siegel, & Bass. l ()92).
