312 Disturbance of conduct, not elsewhere classifiedDisorders mainly involving aggressive and destructive behavior and disorders
involving delinquency. It should be used for abnormal behavior, in
individuals of any age, which gives rise to social disapproval but which is
not part of any other psychiatric condition. Minor emotional disturbances may
also be present. To be included, the behavior--as judged by its frequency,
severity and type of associations with other symptoms--must be abnormal in its
context. Disturbances of conduct are distinguished from an adjustment
reaction by a longer duration and by a lack of close relationship in time and
content to some stress. They differ from a personality disorder by the
absence of deeply ingrained maladaptive patterns of behavior present from
adolescence or earlier.
