Preventing Irritability and Temper Outbursts in Youth by Building Resilience. Child and adolescent psychiatric clinics of North America Singh, M. K., Hu, R., Miklowitz, D. J. 2021; 30 (3): 595-610


Severe irritability and temper outbursts are risk factors for the onset of serious and lifelong mood disorders. In treating children and adolescents with severe irritability, clinicians should evaluate and address safety issues before acute stabilization of symptoms. Then, clinicians can initiate interventions to prevent the onset or relapses of the undesired behavior and its functional consequences. This review summarizes primary, secondary, and tertiary relapse prevention strategies, with an emphasis on strategies that build resilience in youth that mitigate the onset, recurrence, and progression of emotion dysregulation.
