Episode 5- Disruptive behaviour in teens

In this episode, GP Bianca Forrester and Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist A/Prof Sandra Radovini have a conversation about disruptive behaviour in school aged teens. Bianca asks Sandra to help her to organise her thinking about this group of presentations. Sandra frames up this common presentation by describing how “all behaviour has meaning”. So, how do we begin to understand the feelings behind the behaviours? How do we understand these teen’s needs? How do we engage the young person in a collaborative relationship? And how can we as GPs and practice nurses help?
