Mistaking OCD for ADHD has serious consequences | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder appear very similar, but have very different neuropsychological roots.  But Prof. Reuven Dar of Tel Aviv University's School of Psychological Sciences argues that these two neuropsychological disorders have very different roots -- and there are enormous consequences if they are mistaken for each other.

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

 

 By Jim Taylor, Ph. D.

 

"There is...a growing body of research that technology can be both beneficial and harmful to different ways in which children think. Moreover, this influence isn’t just affecting children on the surface of their thinking. Rather, because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations.."

'Sex Addiction' Still Not Official Disorder

'Sex Addiction' Still Not Official Disorder | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

"Despite recent strides in 'sex addiction' research, the condition does not make the cut as an official psychiatric disorder, according to the American Psychiatric Association."

----------


Curator comment: On reflection the decision by the APA to exclude "hypersexuality disorder" (not "sex addiction") from even the provisional section of the DSM is not surprising given the relative lack of controlled studies to adequately account for the onset, prevalence, and severity of this deceptively complex behavioral phenomenon.  The many structural, philosophical and cultural factors that are amply reflected on this site are not easily reduced to a set of universally applicable diagnostic criteria residing specifically within an individual. The attempt to isolate pathological contexts within the narrow dimensions of the medical model is a grave error that already indicts many existing psychiatric diagnoses.  By this measure the APA may have done this field a favor, although their total disavowal of further consideration is hard to understand.  Judging by many of the comments that are being posted on various health-related discussion groups there are a lot of people scratching their heads over this decision.
