According to PSYCH Central, “Cognitive behavior therapy is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behavior.” (Black, 2016). In some cases where the patient presents depression, aggressiveness, irritability and anxiety it can be treated with mood stabilizers, but there are many question about how effective these medications can be with this type of disorder because many of the affected do not recognize that they have a problem.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
