Intermittent Explosive Disorder: Etiology, Assessment, and Treatment provides an overview of intermittent explosive disorder, with a focus on etiology, how the disorder presents, clinical assessment, and treatment methods. The book begins with the history of the disorder, discusses the rationale for its inclusion in the DSM, and then moves into diagnostic considerations, comorbidity, epidemiology, intervention, and more, concluding with how treatment and diagnosis are evolving and where they might go from here. Each section is bolstered by clinical case material providing real-world context, and clinical lessons on how to distinguish intermittent explosive disorder from other presentations of aggression.
