Conduct Disorder Case Analysis

Please note: This assignment has been altered from the description found in the syllabus. Changes have been made in order to give students an opportunity to complete a case study assignment that is directly related to the current module’s focus area.

After reading the case study on Derek (Chapter 8 in the Kearney textbook), please answer ALL associated discussion questions in a substantive and thoughtful manner. Should be written in a word document, adhere to APA format, and be approximately 2-3 pages in length (Times New Roman,12, double-spaced; excluding title and reference pages).

Please respond to each of the following questions:

1. What is the difference, if any, between a teenager diagnosed with conduct disorder and a teenager going through a stressful and stormy adolescence? What about a teenager rebelling against abusive parents or who runs away to avoid marital conflict? (10 points)

2. Critique the DSM-5 diagnosis for conduct disorder. Are three symptoms too few to justify assigning a diagnosis? Which symptoms overlap? Is the diagnosis biased in any way? Are the subtypes or timeline valid? What symptoms might you add, subtract, or combine? Why would you do so? (15 points)

3. Conduct disorder is about four times more common in boys than in girls and the rate of serious criminal behavior is about nine times more common in boys than in girls. What biological, psychological, familial, societal, or other factors do you think account most for these differences? (15 points)

4. How would you assess a child or adolescent with symptoms of conduct disorder? What would you want to emphasize during your assessment and why? With whom would you want to spend the most time talking? (10 points)
