ABSTRACT:
Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a childhood behavioral problem characterized by constant disobedience and hostility. Around one in 10 children under the age of 12 years are thought to have ODD, with boys outnumbering girls by two to one.ODD is one of a group of behavioral disorders known collectively as disruptive behavior disorders, which include conduct disorder (CD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Early intervention and treatment is important, since children with untreated ODD may continue to be difficult and antisocial into their adult years. This can impact on their relationships, career prospects and quality of life. Some children with ODD will develop the more serious conduct disorder (CD), which is characterized by aggressive law-breaking and violent behaviors.
