Overview

Impulsivity and aggression have undergone considerable research scrutiny in recent years and will comprise a major research topic in psychiatry over the next decade. Violence is a public health issue of great concern and advances in our knowledge of the psychiatry of aggression and disorders of impulse control are therefore of tremendous importance. Specifically addressing diagnostic, epidemiologic, evolutionary, neurobiological, neuropsychological and legal issues, this timely text brings together a large array of diverse data to provide a unique, comprehensive and up-to-date account of this subject. Specific impulse control disorders, personality disorders, and related disorders such as self-mutilation, bulimia, substance abuse and neurological trauma are discussed. Treatment strategies?articularly psychopharmacology, new agents undergoing trials and psychological approaches?are reviewed. No single work has yet attempted to address systematically the phenomenology, neurobiology and treatment of impulsivity, aggression and disorders of impulse control. Written by leading world authorities in their field, this text will have a wide audience including researchers and clinicians in psychiatry, psychology, psychopharmacology and mental health care, as well as those in the fields of social and health policy.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an interesting new monograph covering the research and clinical aspects of impulsivity and aggression. The focus is on the phenomenology, neurobiology, and treatment as well as on the specific impulse control disorders. The monograph is written and edited by well-known researchers in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to gather together information regarding the recent developments in related fields and to present the "most-up-to-date" data on the phenomenology, epidemiology, and neurobiology of the specific personality disorders as well as disorders of impulse control. According to the authors, no single work has yet to systematically address this field. The authors definitely succeeded in their goal.
Audience: This book, although not specifically stated by the editors, is intended for researchers of impulse control disorders and violent behavior and clinicians that encounter patients with these disorders. Because of its price, it will probably be limited to a reference text in medical school and psychiatry department libraries.
Features: The book is divided into six parts covering the areas of phenomenology, neurobiology, disorders of impulse control, impulsive aggressive personality disorders, related disorders such as self-mutilation, sexual impulsivity, neurotransmitters and psychopharmacology of impulsive aggression in children, and organic mental disorders and impulsive aggression. The last section summarizes treatment strategies such as the pharmacotherapy of these disorders, preclinical and clinical role of serotonin receptors in aggression, psychotherapy in patients with impulsive aggression, and legal/ethical issues. Each chapter is written by leading authorities in their field. The chapters end with an extensive and up-to-date reference section.
Assessment: This is an excellent, well-written, and up-to-date monograph, authored by a group of outstanding researcher/clinicians. This book should be essential reading for any psychiatrist, psychologist, attorney, or researcher involved with individuals who have problems with impulse control and aggression. It is a great addition to the field.
