In Reclaiming Children and Youth a recent article took a look at Conduct Disorder’s etiology for youth.  The writer of the article, Robert Foltz maintains that although brain imaging techniques can see some of the signs and signals of conduct disorder in adolescents already diagnosed with the disorder, the fact that children are already diagnosed suggest that the brain changess through neuroplasticity as a result of life experiences.  He notes that in 1999 the Surgeon General noted that “no drugs have been found to consistently decrease aggression in youth.”  However, Multisystemic Therapy and Positive Peer Culture have been found to be effective.  Ecological interventions would appear to be the most effective for youth dealing with conduct disorder.
