Sample text

One important characteristic of this aetiological framework is that causality is considered to be multidirectional instead of linear. Thus, the preschool and 30 Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder in Childhood school child’s non-compliant behaviour and anger outbursts may lead to parental disagreement about how to manage the child’s misbehaviour. This disagreement may result in inconsistencies in parenting that reinforce the preschool and school child’s misbehaviour. Although prospective longitudinal studies with young children suggest that the DBDs start much earlier than at school age (see Chapter 2), it should not be ruled out that there actually are children with a typical development until, say, the age of 7 or 8 years who only then start showing disruptive behaviours associated with academic underachievement or environmental factors such as insufficient monitoring.

For example, parents are likely to reinforce the disruptive behaviours of their child by responding to them, whereas ignoring these behaviours would be more appropriate (see Chapter 5). This parenting skill – ignoring – is an important focus in behavioural parent training (see Chapter 8). g. using time-out, praising appropriate behaviours) suggest that an improvement in Individual Characteristics 37 these skills results in a decrease in children’s disruptive behaviours (see Chapter 8). Thus, it is likely that inappropriate parenting (which should be distinguished from maltreatment) plays a role in the persistence of the DBDs, as the improvement of parenting skills results in a decrease of disruptive behaviours.

Furthermore, the functioning of the parents, the child and peers is also affected by contextual factors such as the neighbourhood and the school. Neurobiological factors that have played a role in the initiation of the DBDs go on playing a role in the maintenance of the disorders. 4 Individual characteristics Children with disruptive behaviour disorders (DBDs) differ from typically developing children in a large number of individual characteristics. Most of these characteristics are correlates, only a few may be considered to be a risk factor playing a role in the onset of the DBDs, and some may be considered factors playing a role in the maintenance of the DBDs.
