Now don't get me wrong, I have great respect for the field of clinical psychology (after all I married one) and I certainly am not an expert, but the fact that this hit the media outlets by storm makes me wonder which drug company will introduce a new pharmaceutical for this "IED disorder" next week. Oh, but maybe the real reason for this "discovery" is buried in this comment toward the end of this press release:
Since IED so often arises at a young age, the researchers write, early detection "would most reasonably take place in schools and might well be an important addition to school-based violence prevention programs."
Newsflash: if we think the Great American Public School system is going to identify this problem earlier and impose more "violence prevention programs" in our schools that reshape our kids, think again. It might not be that simple.
The real work starts at home. Especially if Dad is depressed.
