Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Sometimes considered a normal part of adolescence or young adulthood, individuals with ODD are defiant, disobedient, and hostile toward authority figures. Short tempers, deliberate attempts to annoy others, frequent refusal to comply with requests, and blaming others for his/her misbehavior are all hallmarks of ODD.

At Evoke, participants learn pro-social behaviors and the benefits of dropping the anger and defiance that is impacting their success and disrupting family life. Parents learn to parent from an assertive stance and take back their lives as they gain a greater sense of empowerment.
