Oppositional Conduct Disorder (ODD) is listed in the DSM-5 under Disruptive, Impulse Control and Behavioral Disorders and is defined as "a pattern of angry/irritable mood, argumentative/ rebellious behavior or resentment." These behaviors are usually directed toward peers, parents, teachers and other authority figures. Unlike conduct disorder (CD), people with oppositional defiant disorder are not aggressive toward people or animals, do not destroy property and do not exhibit a pattern of theft or cheating. It has certain ties to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and as many as half of children with ODD will also be diagnosed with ADHD.
BeterKliniek is the clinic for Integrative Medicine that bridges regular and non-regular medicine.
An van Veen (physician) and Michael van Gils (therapist) look for the cause of a condition or disease. That is where the treatment starts otherwise, as people often say, it is 'carrying water to the sea'. We call this cause medicine. Sometimes it is also desirable to treat the symptoms (at the same time). We call this symptom medicine.
Chronic disorders often have their cause in epi- genetics. You can schedule a free informative telephone consultation (phone number 040-7117337 until 1 p.m.) at BeterKliniek to discuss your symptoms so that we can provide you with further advice.
