 Impulse Control Disorders and Impulsivity: Future Directions

Show Summary Details


Although research funding for impulse control disorders has been lacking, the last several years have seen an explosion in the amount of research and clinical information on these fairly common and debilitating behaviors. This information has been helpful in developing improved prevention and treatment strategies for many people. Despite these advances, substantial gaps remain in our understanding of impulse control disorders. The field of impulse control disorders therefore remains an important frontier in clinical research.
