underlying mental health conditions associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and other mental conditions as a result of chronic trauma.

with proven results for reduction in anti-social behaviors.
