Oppositional defiant disorder

Common Name(s)

Oppositional defiant disorder

Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a condition in which a child or teen has an ongoing pattern of uncooperative, defiant, or hostile behavior toward people of authority. The child or teen’s behavior often disrupts normal daily activities. Signs of ODD generally begin before a child is eight years old, but at latest before the early teen years. Some symptoms often related to ODD are: temper tantrums, argumentative behavior, spiteful behavior, and lack of self-esteem. Treatment involves parent training, social skills training, problem-solving training, parent-child interaction therapy and individual as well as family therapy.
