executive cognitive function and conduct disorder, there are well described associations with conduct disorder and deficits in ECF. These deficits are thought to be part of a complex aetiology. See works by Claire Hughes, paper; ECF and hard to manage preschoolers. No ADHD necessary. :-*

1.False - I would consider impulse control to be a form of executive dysfunction which is certainly present in Conduct Disorder in isolation.

2.False - Socialized Conduct Disorder patients may gain approval from their DEVIANT peers only.

3.True - At 14 school refusal may be a symptom of psychiatric disorder such as depressive disorder or a phobia. Berney(1981) found more than 40% of school refusers to be significantly depressed.

4.?False - not sure what the comparison is here, but I can't find any evidence to suggest that adolescents experience any more somatic perceptual abnormalities than patients older or younger than this. Is this an allusion to the often non-specific complaints of very early onset psychotic patients?

5.True - DSH in this group is often preceded by arguments with parents or boyfriends.
