Disruptive behavior is a heterogeneous construct that encompasses a variety of symptoms including tantrums, lying, cheating, noncompliance, theft and assault. If these symptoms are severe, persistent and accompanied by impairment in social contexts (e.g., family, peers, school), the individual may meet criteria for one of the two diagnoses that form the disruptive behavior disorders (DBDs): Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD). Although ODD and CD tend to share risk and protective factors, evidence supports the status of ODD and CD as distinct diagnoses, with ODD typically emerging prior to CD and showing links with the emergence of later emotional disorders. Different developmental pathways have been identified for DBDs, focusing on age of onset and the presence of psychopathic features. Current research priorities include a multimethod approach to explore disruptive behavior at neural, genetic and environmental levels across multiple domains (affective, cognitive, social and behavioral) in diverse populations.
