Conduct disorders in adolescence -- Sex differences;

Abstract

Historically, significant gender differences have been reported in the prevalence rates of conduct disordered youth (Zoccolillo, 1993). This differential has led to considerable confusion concerning the nature of the disorder and the individuals directly affected. Further, this differential has made it difficult for practitioners, in schools and in other settings, to comprehend the nature of conduct disorders within a rapidly changing society. Zoccolillo reports that male:female ratios have ranged anywhere from 3:1 to 9.3:8. Reasons for this variation are unclear, but may be associated with such factors as the various criteria employed, rapid change of gender roles in society, age, and clinical competencies of those charged with identifying individuals who may be conduct disordered.
