Merchandise Description

Author: Robert J. Pary, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Southern Illinois, School of Medicine, Springfield, IL


Aging individuals with mental retardation are not immune from becoming aggressive. No one pattern of aggressive behavior exists. Although aggression can be a sign of a major psychiatric disorder, not all aggressive behavior is indicative of a mental disorder or requires psychotropic medication.

Produced in 1994.
