1993). Furthermore, some definitions even focused on specific causes for the inability to maintain social relationships. In the DSM-III description of Undersocialized Conduct Disorder (American Psychiatric Association, 1980), the focus was on certain personality traits that impaired the formation of social relationships. Specifically, the DSM-III stated: The Undersocialized types are characterized by a failure to establish a normal degree of affection, empathy, or bond with others. Peer relationships are generally lacking, although the youngster may have superficial relationships with other youngsters.

Second, the symptoms indicative of a conduct disorder are defined largely by the behavioral covariation among conduct problem symptoms. The patterns of behavioral covariation are determined using multivariate statistical analyses, such as factor analysis, that isolate distinct patterns or "factors" of highly intercorrelated conduct problems (see Quay, 1986, for a review). One difficulty in relying solely on the results of statistical analyses is that the factors or patterns of behavior that emerge from the analyses depend to a large extent on the behaviors that are included in the factor analysis and on the characteristics of the sample on which the analysis is conducted.
