Conclusion Chapter. References

This chapter first reviews impulse control disorders as mental disorders, and then considers the available research on the clinical features, epidemiology, psychiatric comorbidity, biology, and treatment response of various recognized and putative impulse control disorders (except for trichotillomania and pathological gambling, which are reviewed in Chapterii4.1i3.21 and Chapter4.13.3 respectively). It is concluded that impulse control disorders are legitimate mental disorders.
