This quality standard covers recognising and managing antisocial behaviour and conduct disorders in children and young people. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

It does not cover antisocial personality disorders in adults, which is covered by NICE’s quality standard for personality disorders: borderline and antisocial.
