Understanding Oppositional Defiant Dissorder (ODD) during Covid- 19


All children are oppositional from time to time, particularly when tired, hungry, stressed, or upset. However, youth that display continual patterns of tantrums, arguing, and angry or disruptive behavior toward teachers, parents, or other authority figures that interfere with their functioning may have oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). The stressors and challenges youth are experiencing as a result of COVID-19 decisions affecting their youthful norms can absolutely trigger more mental health related concerns. Participants will gain an understanding of ODD, Risk Factors, Prevention/Intervention, COVID-19 triggers, and effective therapy.
