The Cause Is Often Lying And Stealing In Full Awareness?
. I have a friend with whom he has a tendency to steal and lie in full awareness. He stole not out of necessity, he lied also not in an urgent situation … but he was really aware, if insinuated he did not respond to anything … he did it all without a clear motive … but we are not sure that he has Kleptomania According to the doctor, does he really have Kleptomania? Does he have another psychological illness?
Hello Kathryn, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Some possible causes of your complaint from you include:
Impaired inability to control desire (eg Kleptomania)
Psychosis disorders (delusions or hallucinations) Kleptomania is a state of impulsive control disorder or inability to control desires where the patient cannot refrain from stealing or taking other people's things that he does not really need. Generally does occur in adolescence but can also occur in children or adults and is done without criminal motives.
Some signs and symptoms of Kleptomania include:
Clptomania sufferers cannot refrain from stealing things they don't really need. Usually sufferers will feel anxious, worried, or tense when before they act. After committing theft, people will usually feel happy and satisfied after successfully doing the action. After that, guilt usually arises, regret, shame, and afraid if caught. But usually sufferers still can not hold back / urge so great to repeat his actions again Usually a condition of Kleptomania is also associated with other disorders such as anxiety disorders, personality disorders, mood disorders, or other disorders. It is difficult to determine whether someone is lying or not, and the patient's feelings, motives, and strong feelings or urge must be explored when he wants to steal to be called a Kleptomania disorder. It is better to suggest your friend to consult with a psychiatrist, because interviews or more complete information about the condition of the patient is needed. Your doctor may suggest cognitive behavioral therapy, counseling therapy, psychodynamics, perila modified therapy, or medications to help the patient's condition.
