Twenty children with hyperkinetic disorders with or without conduct disorders were treated in a home-treatment setting, as an alternative to inpatient treatment, by nurses specialized in child psychiatry and under the constant supervision of an experienced child psychiatrist. Conduct disorders were influenced positively in the child's natural surroundings. Parents were trained as co-therapists. Good cooperation by the family is required for therapy to have positive effects. Case studies serve to illustrate how treatment can be conducted at home.
