Impulse Therapy Q & A

What is an Impulse Control Disorder?

Many people struggle to understand impulse control disorders. The disorder makes it difficult for individuals to resist the urge or urge to “act out” It includes everything from addiction to stealing (kleptomania) The impulse typically develops in response to increased stress or feeling out of control. There are considered to be five main behavioral stages that characterize impulsivity: Indication, guilt and grief. Participating in the act generally results in pleasure and gratification. The more dangerous form of impulse control relates to individuals who don't have any regrets for their negative actions and therefore have no desire to change, such as those who have no regrets for what they have done. Multiple impulse therapy is a way to reduce the pain and negative response or responses that you may have in your life through pain-free methods and therapies. Impulse control can be chronic and occur because of a group of individuals or by one's own self. While pain is at the core of patients' problems recognizing and trying to practice restraint and self-regulation, oftentimes times treatment will go on and on due to the fact that the chronic formed habits are not easy due to the patient's sense of self.

 

Causes of Impulsion Control Disorders: The exact cause for impulse control disorder

Impulse Control Disorder Impulsivity symptoms are more common in individuals with childhood ADHD Impulsivity is more likely to persist into adulthood Impulsive patients became less impulsive after age 40 - Impulse Control Disorder Treatment: Impulsivity can be treated by a combination of behavioral therapy and medication. Impulse control disorder treatment for children Impulsive behavior rarely responds well to psychotherapy alone; Impulse-control disorder medications that are used include stimulants, tricyclic antidepressants, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Impulse control disorder can be described as a frequent inability to resist impulses. Impulsiveness is mainly focused on what comes first that is why people often see impulsivity as an inability to delay gratification. Impulsivity has been related to certain psychiatric disorders such as to conduct disorder, kleptomania, pathological gambling, and Tourette's syndrome.

Impulsive behavior can be due to many factors including head injury, birth trauma, acquired brain injury, physical illness (such as multiple sclerosis), genetic factors (such as hyperthymic temperament) medications, and substance abuse.- Impulse control disorders are marked by failure of the frontal cortex of the brain to properly regulate behavior. Impulse control disorders include kleptomania, pyromania, and compulsive sexual behavior, which are also known as impulse-control problems. Impulse control disorders are not connected to some other psychiatric conditions such as antisocial personality disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder.- Impulse is an arousal of the mind towards a given act and it is inborn in all living creatures; it supplies direction to our actions, but it can lead people toward many different things — from good to bad. Impulses can be separated into two groups: internal impulses which originate within a person and external ones which happen around him/her.

Internal vs . external impulses

Internal Impuses are characterized as wanting to do something which we feel like but inappropriate to the given situation. These Impulses can be managed by a given person, however; sometimes Impulses are not well-regulated and lead people into doing bad things (physical or mental). These Impulses are regulated from inside the brain, they reside in many different parts of it, such as the frontal lobe, amygdala — these Impulses control us i. e. moods, emotions, and even sexual ones. Impulse disorders occur when Impulses get out of control - some Impulse disorders include kleptomania, pyromania, trichotillomania, and compulsive gambling.

External impulses originate outside a given person, leading them to do things that they know are wrong but they do them anyways. Impulse control disorders occur when there is a difference between one's behavior and what one desires to do. Impulses stem from these thoughts, feelings, or compulsions that lead people to perform actions without considering the consequences of their deeds. Impulse control disorders are caused by chemical imbalances in the brain that influence dopamine production and use. Impulses affect many parts of a person's life including social interactions, finances, work performance, and personal relationships. Impulses can also cause physical harm due to high-risk behaviors such as smoking and drug abuse. Impulses can be controlled through therapy, but some disorders cannot be cured with treatment alone.

 

Multiple Impulse therapy

Impulsivity is a tendency to react to stimuli quickly and without much thought. It often involves unplanned risky behavior, action without forethought. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders now categorizes impulse control issues separately from addictions and compulsions. Some theorists believe impulsivity is behavioral. Some see it as a cognitive phenomenon.

There are biological, neuropsychological, and biopsychosocial perspectives on impulsivity as well. Another study found that people with lower levels of dopamine had higher rates of impulsive behavior, offering a biological explanation for impulsivity. People with lower dopamine levels may also show more rapid reactions to stimuli with little or no thought given to consequences because they do not have enough dopamine to process this information. Impulsivity, cognitive response to an impulse, is often seen in individuals with borderline personality disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and conduct disorders. Impulsive responses may result from biological factors such as genetics or neurochemistry (or both). Impulsivity can also be learned through the environment including some parenting styles.

Although impulsivity can be associated with drug abuse and alcoholism it can exist independently of these behaviors. Impulsive people are sometimes referred to as being "high-risk" because their impulsive actions expose them to unnecessary risks which could lead to physical harm in high-speed vehicular accidents or fights or sexual encounters with multiple partners who may be carrying STD's or STI's. Impulse disorders can all too easily take a toll on one's daily life and wellbeing. If you or someone you love is showing signs of impulsive, disruptive behavior such as excessive gambling, hair pulling, or other such unhealthy habits, it's time to seek help.

Our program at familyTime Centers utilizes CBT and impulse reduction techniques to alleviate symptoms through treatment programs. Reviews from our past clients have indicated that our program has had many successful patients who after sessions exhibit high results in a reduction of symptoms. Our treatment plans leverage clinical analysis and data that has been a point of study for many years. Our pain-free techniques engage the patient to find a sense of self and practice reduction of the underlying symptom of pain. In sessions, both individual and group sessions patients are instructed to look inside for a sense of relief. Research shows that treatment is possible by allowing patients to recognize their pain in both group and individual sessions. The results have been astronomical with the amount of % of visits. These techniques use a results-based program with an emphasis of internal mindfulness for treatments in almost every session.

Clients reported relief over the weeks and felt confident with their results to reduce the number of visits to the clinic without any problems. The resources produced by Family Time centers, allow for a clinic-like setting where the primary focus is based on feeling relief through the body of the participants. After the individual conducts an analysis of themselves, the doctor will perform the analysis to determine how to support the patient or group with cbt techniques or a number of different technologies.

After weeks of visits and primary body and mind treatment, participants report having a better sense of self with a response that indicates a high level of relief. Participants and doctors could reduce the number of visits to the location to show how the cbt therapy. Patients can feel comfortable knowing that the treatments don't involve pain and that the medical device used will re-establish a sense of self. This noninvasive technology takes place of any medicine that early treatments may have used. Neurofeedback has taken over as the primary device at our clinic as the technology is one that helps the treatment of patients without any pain. A study has shown how this device and its technology with multiple impulse therapy is an effective way to alleviate the symptom or symptoms brought on by early impulse problems. Treatment with the technology has allowed participants and a doctor to determine if a nonmedicine approach is working, after 20 sessions with neurofeedback technology and completion of the program, the doctor can either determine if the patient needs medicine or if the they need to head in different directions to fix a specific symptom. Most clinical doctors will track treatment models using technology.
