Preview

This chapter examines some of the risk factors for conduct disorder itself and attempts to answer the question of whether conduct disorder has become increasingly common. Despite some confounding age-related effects, there is suggestive evidence of a small but real increase in conduct disorder due, in all probability, to changes in social structure similar to those found in other populations.

Keywords: conduct disorder; alcohol dependence; age-related effects; social structure; alcohol abuse; conduct dependence
