Conduct Disorder among Adolescents: An Intervention Approach through Psycho-Yogic Program
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.
