Are You Struggling With Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Oppositional Defiant Disorder is usually diagnosed in children and adolescents and is a pattern of aggressive verbal or physical behaviors toward parents, other adults, or peers. It can include tantrums, hostility, defiance, and a disregard for the rules.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling interventions may include family therapy, where therapists work on skills for parents to help manage their child’s behavior and process emotions related to the effects of ODD on the family. Therapy may also include behavioral interventions, such as working on skills to help the child manage their emotions in stressful or triggering situations. Additionally, counselors can help children with ODD work on skills such as communication, time management, and stress reduction to help alleviate symptoms.
