oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) applies to an unhelpfully large number of problems that are, from a therapist's perspective, best viewed as separate, distinct issues.
This website is dedicated to helping parents and teachers with one subset of oppositional defiant disorder - behaviors that do not respond to normal parenting and classroom management techniques.
Those looking for ideas for what to try with oppositional behavior at home can continue on this page. If you would like a consultation with a nationally recognized therapist who understands that resistant ODD is not the fault of parents, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
