Rethinking the service provision amongst young people with behavioural problems: The need to revamp

Ifigeneia Manitsa (Psychology Researcher and Associate Lecturer)
Five percent of young people in the UK have conduct disorder and 45% of community child health referrals are due to behaviour problems. Young people living in deprived neighbourhoods and low-income households are three times more likely to present with behavioural problems. Many families currently receive little or no help until the young person’s behaviour has escalated to involvement in crime. However, digital programmes have been found to moderate behavioural symptoms and are user-friendly giving easy and immediate access and support to parents.
