Do your child's outbursts of anger, power struggles, blackmail and rebellion prevent your family from living a simple peaceful day?
Does it constantly DISTURB your day, thinking that at any moment you might get a call from your child's school telling you that your child has intentionally caused damage again?
Have the various strategies you have always used in an attempt to resolve the situation FAILED?
Oppositional defiant disorder is a behavioural disorder that occurs in children of school or preschool age, and is characterised by anger, irritability, revenge and aversion behaviour, that frequently manifests in your child for a period of at least six months.
Very often, it is highlighted by conditions that imply problems relating to emotional self-control. In these disorders, the problems encountered are expressed through the abuse of the rights of others, such as in the case of aggression, destruction of property, or in which the person displays a sharp contrast in behaviour to social norms or a negative reaction to authority figures.
School teachers find themselves unprepared when facing these types of issues, and they know that the subject they teach will suffer while they disregard the basic tenets of psychology and pedagogy.
If not resolved in time, these problems cause impairment in social adaptation and social functionality, increasing the risk of anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and leading to potentially serious consequences that could otherwise, with the right techniques, be avoided.
In fact, more and more parents and educators are turning to methods proven by psychologists, methods based on specific cases, becoming experts and abandoning old methods that have perpetually proved to be ineffective.
