Mood dysregulation is a symptom that is present in a variety of disorders, particularly trauma-based and anxiety disorders.  It can be challenging for clinicians to understand and manage dysregulated mood since it can present as irritability, mood swings, and angry outbursts, which can challenge the therapeutic relationship. This webinar will provide information to assess better mood dysregulation and how it may present itself differently in various disorders and discuss therapeutic challenges and strategies to address them.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify mood dysregulation in adolescents and adults, particularly better understanding the role of mood dysregulation in trauma disorders, conduct and personality disorders, mood disorders, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
  • Understand Disruptive Mood Dysregulation disorder in adolescence, why it was included in the DSM 5 as a better explanation of many youth mood disorders than Bipolar disorder, and how it manifests itself over the life course.
  • Analyze therapeutic challenges of mood dysregulation, such as irritability and anger towards providers and concerns about safety and self-harm.
