Learning Objective: 6.1
How does the asset support this Learning Objective? The article discusses neurological disorders associated with movement in children.
Summary: Disorders that affect movement in children are relatively common. However, they have received little attention, especially when compared with epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders. In this review article, we address the major types of movement disorders that affect children, their clinical characteristics and etiologies, and, when available, the scales used to grade them. A discussion on spasticity, which traditionally is not addressed in reviews of “movement disorders,” is also included.
Questions to Consider:
- What are the major types of movement disorders that affect children?
- What disorders are co-morbid with movement disorders?
- Wat is the most common cause of movement disorders in children?
Learning Objective: 6.4
How does the asset support this Learning Objective? The article discusses the association between personality disorders and eating disorders.
Summary: Personality disorders are oftentimes comorbid with eating disorders. According to a review of the literature, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is the most common Axis II disorder in eating-disordered individuals with restrictive eating behavior, whereas borderline personality disorder is the most common Axis II disorder in those with impulsive eating pathology. Because personality disorders developmentally precede eating disorders and the characteristics of the personality disorder oftentimes mirror the style of eating pathology (e.g., highly controlled personality styles and highly controlled eating patterns; impulsive personality styles and impulsive eating pathology), it is reasonable to assume that personality disorders influence subsequent eating pathology. Therefore, it is likely that personality disorders function, to some degree, as risk factors for the development of specific types of eating disorders. The authors discuss the clinical implications of these relationships.
Questions to Consider:
- What are the most common disorders that co-occur with eating disorders?
- How are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder different?
- What are the clinical implications for understanding the connection between personality disorders and eating disorders?
