Management Of Kleptomania In Adolescents?
Morning doctor. How do I get rid of Kleptomania in adolescents
Hello, thanks for the question.
Kleptomania is a condition of impulsive control disorder where the sufferer cannot refrain from taking other people's belongings or stealing and it is not uncommon for the items to be stolen to be not too important and worthless. Someone with this mental illness tends to cover up his illness because of embarrassment so that treatment is difficult. This disease can affect children, adolescents, and adults. People with this disease generally feel anxious and tense when committing theft, but will feel satisfied and happy after the action is successful. Theft is generally carried out alone, not related to anger, revenge, or a sense of wanting to have, this behavior only arises due to impulsive impulses from within him that can not be arrested. Kleptomania is generally difficult to cure, but can be controlled with medication and psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a cognitive behavioral therapy by giving an overview of the consequences of actions taken and ways to control impulses in themselves, and can also be given with antidepressant drugs. Kleptomania treatment must be continued so that the disease can be controlled.
so, hopefully it helps.
