In this recorded address, Mona Delahooke illustrates through real-life cases some potential problems with categorically-based DSM diagnoses in children such as ODD and Conduct Disorder and issues with behaviour plans that don’t take modern science of self-regulation into account. She’ll provide a new practical framework, based on neuroscience, that can save us, and our children, from the scourge of the disability model of behavioral treatment.
