          Abstract

          Life-course persistent conduct disorder is a major public health problem with implications for individual health and for society at large. Recent evidence has shown that treatment can be cost-effective and early symptom detection is improving. We weigh the evidence for and against the introduction of population screening for conduct disorder in early childhood using Wilson and Junger’s criteria.
