Disruptive behavior problems, including aggression, defiance, tantrums, and rule-breaking, are extremely common and the leading reason for childhood referrals to mental health services. Parents and educators, know that these types of problems are harmful for children’s school outcomes and life chances, as well as being stressful and challenging to deal with. In this talk, Rebecca Waller presents an overview of her research examining the development of behavior problems, including the development of callous-unemotional traits, along with what we know about best-practice treatments and interventions for childhood behavior problems.
