Conduct disorder and Japanese 'anime' characters[edit]

I find it ironically funny how this article perfectly describes the usual profile of japanese comics & cartoons protagonists, "heroes" to many teenagers nowadays. Makes you wonder if we don't have a time-bomb set already with its countdown going on through the enviromental exposition to this particular entertainment. --Loborojo —Preceding comment was added at 01:45, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Mbhutten's edits[edit]

Mbhutten has some sort of agenda here. His added link to "" was suspicious enough, given the fact that the writing style was not what you'd expect from a credible source. I did a little digging, and here's what I found.

  • Tracert pegged the source website as ''

That raised a couple red flags for me, so I checked a WHOIS database for the domain ',' and here is what I found:

  • Mark Hutten is indeed a MA, as stated on the site (Google confirms), but I'm just not sure about it. For now, I reverted Mbhutten's edits (I forgot to login before reverting), but if anyone wants to ask me about it, feel free. --HubHikari 15:15, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

More info[edit]

It would be nice if someone could find info on the likelihood of a child transitioning to antisocial personality disorder (is it in the DSM?). I seem to recall that many children grow out of it, but not sure enough to make the edit. Jankow28 (talk) 13:17, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

The average child with ODD is more likely to transition into a diagnosis for a personality disorder than the average child. Although many may "grow out of it," I think the more critical piece is that compared to the general population they are more likely to not do so. However to add a little more information... the type of conduct disoder plays into this as well... those with adolescent onset are less likely than those with childhood onset to develop into a diagnosis for ASPD. Here's a quick reference... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:55, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problems with diagnostic criteria[edit]

The American Psychiatric Association has not released its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders into public domain, but claims copyright. The Wikimedia Foundation has received a letter of complaint (Ticket:2010030910040817, for those with access) about the use of their diagnostic criteria in this and a number of other articles. Currently, this content is blanked pending investigation, which will last approximately one week. Please feel free to provide input at the copyright problems board listing during that time. Individuals with access to the books would be particularly welcome in helping to conduct the investigation. Assistance developing a plan to prevent misuse of the APA's material on Wikipedia projects would also be welcome. Thank you. Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:03, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

No controversy?[edit]

This topic (which I just stumbled upon) seems to be the sort for which you would expect to see the usual "medicalization of ordinary differences in human behavior" controversy, particularly given the vagueness with which it is described. Also, the description of the fMRI study should report, at a minimum, the size of the study population. Many such studies have very small or very restricted subject groups, so this information is highly relevant to understanding the validity of the study. Finally, if a source can be found, an estimate of the frequency of this diagnosis in the overall population would be valuable. 121a0012 (talk) 06:37, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Why would anyone think that the kind of severe antisocial behaviour shown by people who have conduct disorder is ordinary? If it is not stopped, the people who have it typically develop antisocial personality disorder. Jim Michael (talk) 18:23, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Proposal to Add the Four Criteria for Conduct Disorder[edit]

Adding the four criteria for Conduct Disorder can help clarify what sort of patterns of behavior violate others basic rights. -Jgonza015 (talk) 21:42, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Assessment and Diagnosis Sandbox Edits for Conduct Disorder[edit]

Hello all, I have made changes in my Sandbox about this topic focusing on evidence-based assessment and diagnosis. It would be great if people would look at it and leave comments on my talk page before I post it on the article.
