This course defines impulse and conduct disorders as portrayed in DSM-5 and the ICD-10 with various characteristics, diagnoses, co-morbidities, and differential diagnoses acted-out in scenarios with reference to the diagnostic numbering scheme of the ICD-10.

About this course

Children tend to yell, hit, and take things they want until they begin to mature and learn to better manage their impulsive emotions and behaviours. Some children, however, grow into adolescents and adults who are unable to do this, breaking rules, lying, stealing, or physically harming others. The common difficulty shared in these behaviors - the inability to resist impulses - is the subject of this course. Beginning with an explanation of the equivalent DSM-5 and ICD-10 coding for the various disorders found in this category, the program goes on to describe the symptoms and requirements for diagnosis of oppositional defiant disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, conduct disorder, antisocial personality disorder, pyromania, and kleptomania. <p>&nbsp;</p> <b>DSM-5-TR update:</b> While this video discusses mental conditions in terms of how the diagnosis would be treated in the DSM-5, the current iteration of the DSM is the DSM-5-TR. However, the clinical material discussed in this video is still current.
