Kids with Bipolar or Temper Dysregulation Disorder with Dysphoria
Controversies Surrounding the Pediatric Bipolar Diagnosis & Treatment (Bioethics Briefs)
A research scholar at a bioethics center describes issues and controversies with children diagnosed with bipolar disorders or a newer diagnosis proposed for the DSM-V, temper dysregulation disorder with dysphoria (TDD), which would reclassify those who may have been given a bipolar label. Discusses some issues involved with changing diagnoses, and with the lack of effective treatments for either. Excellent, very informative commentary examining pros and cons.
