  • If you feel you are no longer in control of your behavior, that your actions may have interfered with your family, social, or working life, this workbook can help you take back control.Impulse control disorders (ICDs) include pathological gambling (PG), kleptomania/compulsive stealing (KM), pyromania/fire setting (PY), and compulsive buying (CB). ICDs are characterized by difficulties resisting urges to engage in behaviors that are excessive and/or ultimately harmful to oneself or others. ICDs are relatively common and can be significantly harmful - even life threatening. They can also be effectively treated with behavioral therapies.Overcoming Impulse Control Problems is written by researchers with years of experience studying the psychology of impulse control disorders. This book represents the treatment they have found to be the most effective at controlling urges to gamble, steal, set fires, and over-spend. It will also help you to better understand the true nature of impulse control problems, and will help to prevent future problems. Intended for use in conjunction with supervised therapy, this workbook includes various self-assessmnets and exercises designed to help you realize the truth behind your actions, and to reach the ultimate goal of changing your impulsive behaviors.This workbook and the corresponding therapist guide form a complete treatment package that will help you overcome your impulsive behaviors and learn skills that are useful for a lifetime.

    Impulsive Control Theory
  • Author : Tao Yang

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Technology & Engineering
  • The concept of impulsive control and its mathematical foundation called - pulsive di?erential equations,or di?erential equations with impulse e?ects,or di?erential equations with discontinuous righthand sides have a long history. In fact, in mechanical systems impulsive phenomena had been studied for a long time under di?erent names such as: mechanical systems with impacts. The study of impulsive control systems (control systems with impulse e?ects) has also a long history that can be traced back to the beginning of modern control theory. Many impulsive control methods were successfully developed under the framework of optimal control and were occasionally called impulse control. The so called impulse control is not exactly the impulsive control as will be de?ned in this book. The reader should not mixup these two kinds of control methods though in many papers they were treated as the same. - cently, there is a tendency of integrating impulsive control into hybrid control systems. However, this e?ort does not have much help to the development of impulsive control theory because impulsive systems can only be studied by the very mathematical tool based on impulsive di?erential equations. The e?ort to invent a very general framework of hybrid control system for stu- ing impulsive control and other hybrid control problems will contribute no essential knowledge to impulsive control.

  • Have you ever known that you shouldn't do something, but just couldn't stop yourself? Of course you have! Perhaps you couldn't resist having one more piece of birthday cake. Maybe your brother or sister made you so mad that you couldn't help yelling. Everyone experiences uncontrollable impulses like these sometimes. But what if these impulses happened to you all the time? How would you interact with your family, do your work at school, or make friends if you couldn't control your impulses? Jeremiah, for instance, loved fire. He loved everything about it—the way it looked, the way it smelled, how its heat enveloped everything. Even though he knew it was wrong, Jeremiah lit fires and watched them incinerate, eat, and destroy everything in their paths. Jeremiah also liked the smoke detectors in his house. He loved taking them apart. Sometimes, after school, Jeremiah would sit in his room, dismantle the smoke detector piece by piece, and then put it back together. Once the smoke detector was reassembled, Jeremiah would light a match beneath it and time how many seconds it took before the detector let out its high-pitched squeal. People like Jeremiah cannot control all the impulses they feel. Some people may get uncontrollably angry, steal, light fires, gamble, pull their own hair, or perform other impulsive actions that are harmful to themselves, their families, and their friends. When a person has repetitive impulses like these, he may be suffering from a psychiatric condition known as an impulse-control disorder. The stories and information in this book will tell you more about impulse-control disorders, how they affect people's lives, and how they can be treated.

  • 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.

  • Do you have a child who acts or talks impulsively?  Children who exhibit impulsive behavior are often labeled unruly. Even though children can be calm, their positive qualities can be often overlooked by their poor impulse control. Children without impulse control act or talk before they think, often unable to control their initial response to a situation. The ability to self-regulate is absent and they don't pause to think about future consequences. Impulsivity is related to acting without thought. As a result, children do things like take unnecessary risks, blurt things out, don't wait their turn, or interrupt conversations. Impulsive Ninja learns how to use an underused superpower to respond to frustration, anger, and criticism. Find out what happens in this SEL book about impulsiveness. Life is tough. But so are you! The new children's book series, Ninja Life Hacks, was developed to help children learn valuable life skills.

  • In the last decade, much needed attention and research has been focused on the group of psychiatric conditions termed 'impulse control disorders' or ICDs. Pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, kleptomania, hypersexuality, Internet 'addiction', among other disorders, are characterized by a recurrent urge to perform a repetitive behavior that is gratifying in the moment but causes significant long-term distress and disability. Despite the high rate of co-morbidity with obsessive compulsive disorder, ICDs are now clearly distinguished from these disorders with a unique clinical approach for diagnosis and treatment. A wide array of psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic options is now available for treating these disorders. Drs Elias Aboujaoude and Lorrin M. Koran have collated the world's foremost experts in ICD research and treatment to create a comprehensive book on the frequency, evolution, treatment, and related public policy, public health, forensic, and medical issues of these disorders. This is the first book to bring together medical and social knowledge bases related to impulse control disorders.

  • Genre : Technology & Engineering
  • Dynamic Programming for Impulse Feedback and Fast Controls offers a description of feedback control in the class of impulsive inputs. This book deals with the problem of closed-loop impulse control based on generalization of dynamic programming techniques in the form of variational inequalities of the Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman type. It provides exercises and examples in relation to software, such as techniques for regularization of ill-posed problems. It also gives an introduction to applications such as hybrid dynamics, control in arbitrary small time, and discontinuous trajectories. This book walks the readers through: the design and description of feedback solutions for impulse controls; the explanation of impulses of higher order that are derivatives of delta functions; the description of their physically realizable approximations - the fast controls and their approximations; the treatment of uncertainty in impulse control and the applications of impulse feedback. Of interest to both academics and graduate students in the field of control theory and applications, the book also protects users from common errors , such as inappropriate solution attempts, by indicating Hamiltonian techniques for hybrid systems with resets.

  • Genre : Psychology
  • The anthology "Impulse Control Disorders" brings together diverse authors and works to highlight key components of a variety of disorders, and gives students a unique view of impulse control disorders from the perspective of self-regulation failure and addiction. The book explores impulsivity and impulse control disorders in pathology in order to understand how such pathology evolves to form elements of some of the most severe disorders of our time. Chapters 1 and 2 address the social psychology domain, exploring many of the principles of self-regulation failure in the social arena. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 deal with the addiction domain. The impulse control disorders discussed in Chapters 6 through 15 are explored within the contexts of self-regulation failure and addiction. Chapters 16 through 18 examine the transition from impulse control disorders to compulsive disorders, and well-documented psychiatric disorders. The brain mechanisms that drive self-regulation failure are explored throughout the text, but a specific focus on regulation failure and stress is provided in Chapter 20. "Impulse Control Disorders" provides essential background reading for a complete course. It can also be used in courses on drugs, addiction, and pharmacology. In addition, the material is very helpful to professionals in the field who wish to compare and evaluate disorders. George F. Koob, Ph.D. is a Professor, and Chair of the Committee on the Neurobiology of Addictive Disorders at The Scripps Research Institute. Dr. Koob is also an Adjunct Professor in the Departments of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego where he has taught upper division and graduate level courses on drugs, addiction and pharmacology. Dr. Koob has published over 700 scientific papers and received continuous funding for his research from the National Institute of Health. He has been honored as a Highly Cited Researcher by the Institute for Scientific Information, and received the Daniel Efron Award for excellence in research from the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

  • Since the 1980s, I’ve seen literally hundreds of diet plans come and go. Although a few of them, such as Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and Nutrisystem, have appeared to stand the test of time, most of them seem to come and go like the wind. I got to see this up close and personal within my own family, within myself, and within the clients of my practices. Through all these observations, and by taking an analytic approach to them, both singularly and in aggregate, I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of these diets fail because they expect the individual to make too many primary changes at once. In essence, they expect the person to change overnight—which rarely happens anywhere in nature (including within humanity, i.e., our species). The same is true of most diets (i.e., lifestyle modification plans [LMPs]). Because they are generally complex, even when someone strives to make them easy, they are difficult to permanently install as a habit, routine, and/or ritual. That’s why it’s so difficult for the vast majority of individuals to start, continue, and complete a diet (or other lifestyle plan). The Nutrient Diet isn’t just a diet and nutrition book. It’s a lifestyle book for general and mental health. David A. Wright, MD, MM, MBA, MHSA

  • In the last decade, much needed attention and research has been focused on the group of psychiatric conditions termed "impulse control disorders" or ICDs. Pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, kleptomania, hypersexuality, Internet "addiction," among other disorders, are characterized by a recurrent urge to perform a repetitive behavior that is gratifying in the moment but causes significant long-term distress and disability. Despite the high rate of co-morbidity with obsessive compulsive disorder, ICDs are now clearly distinguished from these disorders with a unique clinical approach for diagnosis and treatment. A wide array of psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic options is now available for treating these disorders. Drs. Elias Aboujaoude and Lorrin M. Koran have compiled the world's foremost experts in ICD research and treatment to create a comprehensive book on the frequency, evolution, treatment, and related public policy, public health, forensic, and medical issues of these disorders. This is the first book to bring together medical and social knowledge bases related to impulse control disorders.

  • Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Psychology - Clinic and Health Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Atlantic International University, language: English, abstract: The drugs mentioned in this paper each have their own specific effects on the user but they are similar in the manner in which they are used and the treatment used when working with the abuser. A ‘substance’ is a chemical compound that alters behaviour or mood when ingested. This group includes alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, heroin and cocaine along with chocolate and soft drinks. The vast majority of users of the ‘safe’ drugs are not perceived as addicts, they can be equally as addictive and harmful to one’s health. There is a clear distinction between a user and an abuser of drugs. ‘Substance use’ suggests that the individual ingests the drug in moderate amounts that have no significant effect on their social, educational or occupational functionality. The drug has the ability, based on the quantity ingested to create impaired judgement, mood changes and lowered motor ability; this result is referred to as intoxication. ‘Substance abuse’ as an extension of ‘use’ is really defined on how the use of the drug affects the individual’s relationships, his work or education and whether it causes him to place himself or others in physically dangerous situations (Barlow & Durand: 2005). ‘Drug dependence’ is often described as addiction. There is however some disagreement in how we best define substance dependence (Woody & Cacciola: 1997). One definition would explain how the individual requires systematically greater quantities of the drug to experience the same level of intoxication (tolerance), and will behave negatively if the drug is not ingested (withdrawal) (Franklin & Frances: 1999). An alternate view on substance dependence pertains to the behaviour that focuses on finding the required drug as a dependence indicator. A different view of substance dependence focuses on the drug seeking behaviour itself as an indication of dependence. The repetitive ingestion of the drug, an increased need for more of the drug and the likelihood that re-use of the drug will occur after a period of abstinence; are all behaviours that help to define the extent of the drug dependence. These behaviours have a psychological component and these in conjunction with physiological components of tolerance and withdrawal make for a better understanding of substance dependence. Many people are able to ‘enjoy’ a glass of wine ...
