Conduct disorder test

The following test has been developed by Noanxiety.com according to DSM-IV diagnostic criteria about conduct disorder. It can be used by parents and teachers to detect, in their children or students, the presence of symptoms that are usually associated with a conduct problem. All behaviours described in this test must be evaluated in individuals under 18 years of age. Our test does not possess a diagnostic value and its result must not be considered as valuable as a professional assessment. Remember to answer all questions.
