Overview

Visibility of impulse-control disorders (ICDs) has never been greater than it is today, both in the field of psychiatry and in popular culture. Changes in both society and technology have contributed to the importance of conceptualizing, assessing, and treating impulse-control disorders (ICDs). The ground-breaking Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders focuses on all of the different ICDs as a group.

Here, 25 recognized experts provide cutting-edge, concise, and practical information about ICDs, beginning with the phenomenology, assessment, and classification of impulsivity as a core symptom domain that cuts across and drives the expression of these complex disorders. Subsequent chapters discuss • Intermittent explosive disorder, an often overlooked ICD characterized by impulsive aggression.• Childhood conduct disorder and the antisocial spectrum.• Self-injurious behavior and its relationship to impulsive aggression and childhood trauma.• Sexual compulsions and their serious public health implications.• Binge eating, a highly familial disorder associated with serious medical complications and psychopathology.• Trichotillomania, which may be related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, skin picking, and nail biting.• Kleptomania, a heterogeneous disorder that shares features with ICDs as well as with mood, anxiety, and addictive disorders.• Compulsive shopping, more common in women, with treatments ranging from self-help and financial counseling to trials with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.• Pyromania and how it differs from arson.• Pathological gambling, a maladaptive behavioral addiction that is increasing in step with legalized and Internet gambling.• Internet addiction, ranging from excessive seeking of medical information to dangerous sexual behaviors.

The remarkable Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders sheds light on the complex world of ICDs. As such, it will be welcomed not only by clinicians and researchers but also by individuals and family members coping with these disorders.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett C. Plyler, M.D.(Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: This book reviews the range of impulse control disorders from pathogenesis to treatment. Each section is written by a leading expert in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide "cutting-edge, concise, and practical information" about impulse control disorders. The book meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: It is written for clinicians and researchers dealing with impulse control disorders but it could also be very useful for non-professionals interested in impulse control disorders.
Features: The book begins with the conception/classification and assessment of impulse control disorders. Subsequent chapters examine intermittent explosive disorder, childhood conduct disorder/antisocial spectrum, self-injurious behaviors, sexual compulsions, binge eating, trichotillomania, kleptomania, compulsive shopping, pyromania, pathological gambling, and problematic Internet use. Each section covers assessment, symptoms, epidemiology, comorbidity, treatment, and outcomes.
Assessment: This is an excellent examination of impulse control disorders. It reviews each disorder thoroughly and presents clear assessment and treatment methods. The treatments are the most up-to-date available and are especially useful with such problems as Internet usage and compulsive shopping. The sections on impulsive aggression and self-injurious behaviors are both excellent. I would highly recommend this book for any clinician who treats patients with impulse control disorders.
