c) Use multiple sources of information (e.g., workplace, family, school) with consent
d) Explore the patient’s own perspective, not just that of the caregiver

Objective Two:
In assessing behavioural problems in adolescents specifically look for substance use, peer issues, abuse, and other stressors.

c) Destigmatize embarrassing behaviours

Objective Four:

b) Follow up with support and regular visits until the situation is clearer and any therapeutic requirements are more evident

Objective Five:
When managing behavioural problems:

b) Do not limit treatment to medication; address other dimensions (e.g., do not just use amphetamines to treat ADD, but add social skills teaching, time management, etc.) and match to available community resources

Objective Six:
When there is a challenging relationship with a patient with behavioural problems maintain a continuous, therapeutic, and non-judgmental relationship with the patient and family.
