Oppositional defiance disorder (ODD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by a pattern of chronic defiance, disobedience, and hostility towards authority figures.
Symptoms of ODD may include frequent temper tantrums, arguing with adults, actively defying rules, deliberately annoying others, and blaming others for their mistakes.
ODD is typically treated with a combination of therapy, medication, and behavior modification. It is important to work with a mental health professional to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
There are several strategies that parents can use to manage a child with ODD, including setting clear and consistent rules, using positive reinforcement, setting limits, and seeking the guidance of a mental health professional.
ODD is relatively common in children, with estimates suggesting that up to 16% of children may experience ODD at some point. It is more common in boys and typically begins in early childhood. ODD is often a precursor to conduct disorder, a more severe form of behavioral disorder, if left untreated.
It’s time for comprehensive treatment for all your mental healthcare needs.
