Abstract
This study is an investigation into the psychosocial themes present in the DSM-IV diagnosis of adolescents diagnosed with a comorbid Disruptive Behavior and Mood Disorder. These themes are viewed from a psychosocial theoretical perspective. The study focuses on answering four questions.

Firstly, what are the psychosocial themes present in the diagnosis of adolescents diagnosed with a comorbid Disruptive Behavior and Mood Disorder?

Secondly, how does these themes impact the adolescents psychosocial development?

Thirdly, what role does these themes play as causative factors of Disruptive Behavior and Mood Disorder symptoms in adolescence?

and lastly does these themes represent interactional processes reinforcing a reciprocal pattern of behavior and mood disorder symptoms?

These questions are all viewed taking the psychosocial development of the adolescent into account.
