As an important stage of growth in life, children and adolescents is the main period for the formation of personality and habits. However, the number of children and adolescents with behavioral disorders is increasing in their growth stages. Through in-depth analysis and exploration of behavioral disorders in children and adolescents in the medical field, it has been proposed that individual treatment can only achieve poor effect for behavioral disorders in children and adolescents. The treatment should be carried out in accordance with the growth environment of children and adolescents. It is found that the treatment of behavioral disorders in children and adolescents is more effective if involving family therapy. By optimizing the family atmosphere and relationship between family members, family therapy provides a better treatment for children and adolescents with behavioral disorders, thus improves the effect of the treatment.
