Oppositional Defiant Disorder Treatment
ODD is a complicated condition, and there is no singular treatment that can be prescribed. The underlying force effecting a child with ODD, is the rejection of authority in an extreme manner. This means that treatment must involve a careful but deliberate behavioural change. The child must be shown that people in authority can improve their surroundings, provide a nourishing learning environment, and ultimately not be a threat to them. This process takes expertise, perseverance, and care. Treatment for ODD is particularly bespoke as it depends on which setting/s provide the most acute triggers for the child. This could be at home, at school, or both. Inevitably therefore, part or all of the treatment must occur in these places, but we can also integrate clinic based services as well.
