ABSTRACT

Conduct  Disorder  is  a  repetitive  and  persistent  pattern  of  behaviour  in  which  the  basic  rights  of  others  or  major  age-appropriate  societal  norms  or  rules  are  violated  and  is  seen  commonly  among  adolescents  these  days.  These  behaviours  fall  into  four  main  groupings:  aggressive  conduct,  nonaggressive  conduct,  deceitfulness  or  theft,  and  serious  violations  of  rules.  We  thus  conducted  this  study  in  order  to  reach  to  a  gradual  solution  of  these  problems.  A  Control  group  study  was  conducted  on  a  sample  of  80  adolescents,  taken  through  quota  sampling,  with  50  in  Experimental  and  30  in  Control  group.  Child  Behavior  Checklist  6-18  years  by  T.  M.  Achenbach  (2001)  was  used  for  pre  and  post  readings.  After  8  weeks  of  intervention,  significant  improvement  was  noticed  in  Experimental  group  at  0.01  level  of  confidence  thus  indicating  that  Psycho-Yogic  Intervention  can  be  applied  to  reduce  the  symptoms  of  Conduct  Disorder  among  adolescents.
