Walter Matthys is Professor of Aggression in Children at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and a clinical psychiatrist at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University Medical Centre, Utrecht. His research at the Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience focuses on neurobiological and psychological characteristics in children and adolescents with disruptive behaviour disorders, and the interventions to prevent and treat these disorders. John E. Lochman is Professor and Doddridge Saxon Chairholder in Clinical Psychology at The University of Alabama, where he also directs the Center for Prevention of Youth Behavior Problems. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, serves on the Board for Society for Prevention Research, and is President of the American Board for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. His research interests are centred on risk factors, social cognition, and intervention and prevention with aggressive children.
For many years, the fields of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD) and aggressive and antisocial behaviour, have been researched independently of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and hyperactive, impulsive and inattentive behaviour. In reality, they often occur simultaneously, and their separation has led to a hampering of our understanding of the two groups. However, the last decade has seen an integration of the research fields, essential for an accurate understanding of these disorders, and information on this topic has grown rapidly. Focusing on children aged 3 to 14 years, this book offers a concise and comprehensive overview of empirical knowledge and associated clinical information on ODD and CD; it does so with respect to aetiology, assessment and treatment, and to neurobiological factors in these disorders. In reviewing the literature, the authors pay particular attention to recently published studies and meta-analyses, without neglecting older high quality studies. Written as a guide for professionals, this book is useful as a succinct overview of the field for both students and researchers; it is also of value to advanced researchers, offering essential information on topics which may not be their primary focus of interest and expertise.
