Disruptive Behavior is typically a chronic problem that can be resistant to treatment. Children and adolescents tend to engage in frequent and avoidant negative patterns of behavior such as arguing with authoritative figures/parents, risky behavior, destruction of property, aggression toward peers, lying and stealing. These constant maladaptive patterns lead to more problems such as poor grades, high absenteeism, and negative family relationships.
