Read the DSM V section on Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder instead of this book.
Why do I need a pen name?
I believe we should read various sources and draw our own conclusions considering he provides no data.
Sam
If it had fonts and margins more like a typical paperback book it would be about 50 pages.

that cannot be found in the DSM 5. The information seems correct but is not worth the price under the circumstances. As I psychologist, I found this to be a long, direct dig against the Papalos' book. For example, he tells you to throw their book away four times in the 1st 30 pages. I believe we should read various sources and draw our own conclusions considering he provides no data.

I found Todd Finnerty's new book on DMDD very helpful. It is easy to read and well informed; it is written in a rare format that makes it approachable and useful to both professionals and laypeople. So the audience is both mental health professionals and parents of children with such problems. Finnerty is clearly aware he is speaking to both groups, and gives helpful references for further reading to each.

I am a Psychiatrist, practicing both psychotherapy and medication management. I, and many people in my profession, have been concerned about the problems with the diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder. There is clearly a group of people that have chronic problems with irritability, impulsivity, and behavior that have not fit clearly delineated diagnostic categories in the DSM system. One worrisome answer has been to use the Bipolar diagnosis, in an overly flexible way, that has led to many individuals being misdiagnosed. This has been especially concerning with child patients. To use the Bipolar diagnosis for such children, and then to form-fit medication treatments on such children, exposes them to potentially dangerous medications when that may not be the most beneficial treatment. More important, it might deny them more effective treatments such as psychotherapy and interventions through the family and school milieu.

In answer to this, the American Psychiatric Association has developed a new diagnosis, DMDD. While retaining the Bipolar disorder (which does occasionally occur in children), they now recognize this new diagnosis, and the need for treatments potentially different than those useful for a patient with Bipolar Disorder.

Finnerty's book generally covers 3 themes; he describes the professional phenomenon noted above, then the new diagnosis, then treatment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This pamphlet comes across as few hurriedly written pages of poor quality,rushed through publication, to maximize marketing potential by coinciding with the publication of DSM V. The author mostly repeats what DSM V says about DMDD, which is an artificial category made up mostly for political purposes, with not much clinical or scientific support for it. Repetitive statements to throw away some book the author does not like comes across as childish. One gets the impression the author does not have much experience being the ultimately responsible person for the treatment of children with severely troublesome behavior and serious mental illnesses and hence makes statements that come across as wishful fantasies to bolster one's way of thinking and practice. Many of the author's suggestions how to handle the problems of such children, are of little value and could even make the plight of these children worse or even dangerous.

This pamphlet cannot be taken seriously and is even misleading for people who have serious interest and commitment to the welfare of mentally ill children.

I am a parent of a child who fits disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) to a T. I am hopeful that the new diagnosis will help guide research that will help treatment of children like my daughter. This book is a well written overview of what is known about DMDD and other mood disorders in children. There are a few interesting points that I was not able to find via basic web searches. What I found most promising was the assertion that these kids don't have to be restricted to the same meds that bipolar kids get, and that antidepressants and stimulants <may> be worth trying.

However, this is more of a booklet than a book. It's about 80 pages with big fonts and a very large top margin. If it had fonts and margins more like a typical paperback book it would be about 50 pages. Expect to read it in about an hour.
