However, other studies provide contradictory information. In another investigation, researchers used several structured diagnostic assessments to determine whether CD adolescents could be distinguished from controls, and found that adolescents’ self-report (including the CBCL) significantly discriminated CD adolescents from nonafflicted controls, suggesting the utility of such methods in reaching differential diagnoses (Crowley, Mikulich, Ehlers, Whitmore, & Macdonald, 2001). In yet another investigation of the comorbidity of major depression and conduct disorder, four variables distinguished between the two mental illnesses: anxiety, witness to family violence, illegal behavior, and impulsive behavior.

For instance, research reveals that the risk associated with family and neighborhood poverty may be moderated by parental supervision (Pettit, Laird, Bates, & Dodge, 1997). Garmezy and Rutter (1983) characterize protective factors as those characteristics that buffer a child from the deleterious effects of risk factors. Indeed, the interaction of risk and protective factors is an important consideration in understanding the development of CD in children.
