Application of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Conduct Disorder in Children

This library-based paper discusses the need to utilize cognitive behavioural therapy for the treatment of conduct disorder in children. The increasing rate of conduct disorder among young children in our society today is a source of great concern for parents and other significant persons that are saddled with the responsibility of child upbringing. Cognitive behavioural therapy has been discovered by scholars to be a good psychological technique for addressing children and adolescent behavioural problems. It is on this premise that this paper attempts, at least in part, to fill the vacuum of the dearth of literature concerning this issue in this part of the world
