NICE Clinical Guideline – Antisocial behaviour and conduct disorders in children and young people: recognition, intervention & management (CG 158)

 In Clinical Guidelines, NICE guidelines

Conduct disorders, and associated antisocial behaviour, are the most common mental and behavioural problems in children and young people, with a prevalence of 5% between ages 5 and 16 years.

Conduct disorders commonly coexist with other mental health problems, in particular with ADHD, and are also associated with increased rate of mental health problems in later life such as antisocial personality disorder. Treatment includes a range of behavioural interventions, and parent/carer programmes. Medication such as methylphenidate and atomoxetine may be used for ADHD and risperidone for the short-term management of severely aggressive behaviour.
