Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. gain knowledge about Conducting Change—a proposed prevention program for elementary school students at risk for conduct disorder.
  2. learn more about the need for early intervention and prevention for students at risk for behavior disorders such as conduct disorder.
  3. become more familiar with multiple risk factors associated with conduct disorder.


Individuals with childhood-onset conduct disorder (CD) are more likely to demonstrate physical aggression toward others, have disturbed peer relationships, and have CD in adulthood. Early identification of children at high risk for antisocial behavior is crucial. Despite the concerns demonstrated in research for CD, the actual implementation of prevention and treatment remains a challenge. This poster will present information about Conducting Change, a proposed prevention program for elementary school students at risk for CD.
