Details

When an individual suffers from an impulse control disorder, that person has little or no control over repeated impulsive acts, causing problems for him or her. Impulse control disorders include pathological gambling, pyromania, kleptomania, intermittent explosive disorder, and trichotillomania, or hair-pulling disorder. People with these disorders usually know their behavior is wrong or strange, but they cannot refrain from such behavior. Though each of these troubling disorders can be psychologically disabling, treatment can be usually helpful to sufferers. Impulse Control Disorders discusses the most common of these disorders, their treatments, and other psychological disorders commonly associated with them.

Chapters include:
  • Pathological Gambling
  • Out-of-Control Rage: Intermittent Explosive Disorder
  • Compulsive Fire Starters: Pyromania
  • Chronic Hair-Pulling: Trichotillomania
  • Kleptomania: When Stealing Is an Unavoidable Urge
  • Treatment of Impulse Control Disorders
  • Other Psychiatric Problems Commonly Found with Impulse Control Disorders.
