It is crucial to identify the root cause of disruptive behavior in clients who are being assessed. This could involve gathering information such as family history, any past experiences that may have triggered their issues, and possible triggers that could be avoided in the future—all of which should help paint a clearer picture of why this particular problem exists. The appropriate treatment for the problem can be started once a diagnosis is made. This could include referrals to specialists or psychotropic medication depending on its severity.
Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which focuses on helping people recognize and change their maladaptive behaviors, is a very effective therapy for dealing with disruptive behaviours. If the circumstances warrant, exposure therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), both may prove to be useful. They focus on core beliefs as well as feelings that are associated with distress. Ultimately though, each person’s needs will vary so it is important to remain patient during this process and tailor treatments accordingly until satisfactory outcomes are achieved.
