Externalizing and Disruptive Behaviors in Children and Adolescents

Externalizing and Disruptive Behaviors in Children and Adolescents 

Externalizing disorders occur fairly commonly among children and adolescents. It is estimated that externalizing disorders occur in 5 to 20 % of youth in the United States. The prevalence depends on the population that being examined and the methods used to determine the diagnosis. Because of the high prevalence of externalizing disorders in youth, it is very likely for you to encounter at least one child or adolescent with this condition in your field of work. The course of interacting and working with youth with externalizing disorders can be very challenging and frustrating for clinicians. The purpose of this course is to review the main features and symptoms of externalizing disorders including Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder. The course also describes several evidence-based interventions that may be useful in developing trusting relationships and a working alliance with youth with externalizing disorders and their families. The content of the course will help you increase your understanding of these disorders and improve your skills in implementing best practices to serve to youth with externalizing disorders. This course is intended for any professionals working in any behavioral health environment. The information provided in this course is appropriate for entry to intermediate-level clinicians.
