Understanding and effectively working with children and youth who present with oppositional and defiant behaviour

Dr. Donna MacLachlan
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar
December 2 and 3, 2021 | 9 a.m. to noon EST

The first day of this training will provide a brief overview of normal teen defiance. This is useful as a foundation to discuss when this defiance is interfering with one’s functioning. As well as when it meets criteria for an oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). Conduct disorder will also be discussed in relation to the diagnosis of ODD.

Participants will examine the origin of the behaviours using a bio-psycho-social approach. There will be a particular emphasis on the parent-child relationship and this potential relationship to the symptoms. The facilitator will review other psychiatric diagnosis, including trauma, as a potential primary or co-morbid diagnosis.

The second day will focus on assessment and treatment approaches. These will include an overview of principles of attachment and trauma. These are the foundation for how to address any parent-child relational issues. Also useful in how to engage children and youth in a trusting therapeutic relationship. Participants will explore strategies to address specific behaviours demonstrated by oppositional youth. Behaviours such as non-compliance and anger. This is to help parents/guardians and workers identify how to disengage from conflict and support the client.
