Boarding School that Welcomes Boys with Conduct Disorder
We can help your boy if he’s struggling because of Conduct Disorder, a condition of repeated and persistent violations of social norms and the rights of others. Does he exhibit physical or verbal aggression, bullying people and pets, destructive behavior, deceitfulness, truancy, vandalism or thievery? The term refers to the distinction between a boy’s “typical” acting out and major misbehavior.
If he doesn’t get help, your son might find himself in trouble with school or even legal authorities. He might be held accountable for behavioral actions that he cannot control.
Treatment primarily centers on altering the behavior patterns that bolster bad behavior. Unlike other disorders, Conduct Disorder therapy can typically include the parents as well as the boy. There is no single acceptable resolution to Conduct Disorder, but many programs include training parents to more effectively discipline and reward good behavior in an attempt to shatter the cycle of bad actions leading to more bad actions.
Conduct Disorder is thought to be a possible precursor to Antisocial Personality Disorder. Studies have indicated a preliminary link between different brain functions and lowered levels of compassion shown by those experiencing conduct disorders.

He’ll see God’s love daily, since spiritual growth leads to positive growth in every facet of life.
If you’ve tried short-term programs or hospital stays but to no lasting effect, and he refuses the idea of change, interventions away from home – such as a residential program like Agapé Boarding School — may be the answer for your boy.
