Gain confidence in your ability to diagnose and treat Conduct Disorder, ADHD, ODD & Bipolar - GUARANTEED!

As clinicians, we are often faced with complicated cases where the child/ adolescent is displaying multiple behaviors and symptoms, and parents are desperately seeking answers or a diagnosis. Disruptive behavior disorders are typically easy to identify because they are characterized with temper tantrums, outbursts, aggression and defiant behavior. However, since symptomology can overlap, incorrectly identifying children and adolescents with the wrong diagnosis can be detrimental to their social, emotional and cognitive development.
