Chronic Impulsivity

Why this resource is helpful:

Chronic Impulsivity Chronic Impulsivity is a severe lack of self-regulation.

This can take form as an inability to control immediate reactions or troubles concentrating.

Impulsiveness makes it difficult to consider consequences of actions, completing tasks quietly, or not interrupting conversation.

Lack of self-control can lead to impulse spending or impulse eating.

Some causes of impulsivity could be related to other psychiatric complications, such as A D H D, O C D or borderline personality.

Other times, it arises due to lack of modeling of appropriate behaviors or emotional regulation during upbringing.

Treatment for chronic impulsivity includes medication and therapy.

Medication curbs impulses.

Therapy guides clients in modifying behavior, leading to more positive or appropriate responses.

A therapist can also help clients to develop healthy self-esteem, and get to any underlying cause of impulsivity.

Therapy cultivates the skills clients need to succeed and conduct healthy relationships.
