Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder is a condition ascribed only to children ages 6-17. It’s when a child has frequent angry outbursts that disrupt more than one area of life (school, home, extracurricular activities, etc.) and has an irritable temperament.
Available Treatment Options
Therapist interventions for children with DMDD include strategies to reduce the severity and frequency of outbursts, including mindfulness exercises and behavior modification strategies. It’s common to include parents or the family who cares for the child in therapy to learn how to discipline properly and handle their child’s moods and outbursts.
