This chapter deals with problems of conduct, commonly considered as externalising disorders, which involve self-control of emotions and behaviours. "Problem behaviour," "challenging behaviour," "severely challenging behaviour," and "emotional disorders" or "behavioural disorders" are all terms that describe behaviours that create problems at home, at school and in the community.
