Westside Behavioral Care / Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD)

Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD)

This disorder is most prevalent in children but is also very common among adolescents. It is characterized by aggressiveness, including abnormal resistance to authority and a tendency to purposefully trouble other people. It is as though the individual gets stuck in an oppositional, two-year-old mindset all the way through childhood and in some cases adolescence. Also see Conduct Disorder.
