can you define and describe emotional deficiency disorder?

There is no DSM code: It seems that some doctors are describing a feature of adhd, bipolar and perhaps other diagnoses that reflects violent outbursts as a emotion regulation deficiency. There are also some descriptions of psychopathic people as lacking emotional reaction to their bad behaviors. It is not, in itself, a diagnosis.
