Meredith Weber and Erica Burgoon

Children and teenagers who present with externalizing disorders such as conduct disorder or impulse control disorder can be incredibly challenging for their parents, teachers, and loved ones. The behaviors of these children can also be vexing for schools and other systems in which they are educated and treated. These children are at increased risk for delinquency, educational problems, and other outcomes, which may negatively impact their lives. These behaviors and the resultant consequences also pose steep costs to our society.
