Bullying happens in school, the work place, home, kids etc.. Is there a mental health diagnosis for why people bully others?

Bullying happens in school, the work place, home, kids etc.. Is there a mental health diagnosis for why people bully others?

Nonspecific: Bullying can be a final common pathway of behavior for a wide variety of reasons. There is no specific psychiatric diagnosis that matches bullying. Certainly things in such a person's history -- like being mistreated or abused at home -- may be a factor. But it's not an excuse, and bullying must be stopped. If the bully has been through trauma, s/he needs help as well as firm limit-setting. ...Read more

It depends: There are so many factors that may affect the decision. It depends on the health of the grandparents. If it happens, looking to get support from others in the family is very important. The age of the children may also be a factor. This is a long-term commitment. Many times the grandparents can be stressed. Making sure there is adequate financial support is also important. ...Read more

11 year old who urinates self, poor grooming, and add like symptoms. Recently began soiling self. Poor social skills. Is it signs of abuse?

One possibility: While abuse is one of the things in the possible reasons for this scenario, it is not the only one. There could be a neurologic problem leading to the soiling and wetting. There could be psychologic problems, with the number one disorder coming to mind being depression and/or anxiety in this age group. The kid's thyroid could be out of whack. This child needs a complete head to toe evaluation! ...Read more

Will signing up my child for martial arts lessons give him more discipline?

Will signing up my child for martial arts lessons give him more discipline?

Absolutely!: I'm glad you posted this question...Having studied martial arts myself and having enrolled my son in the study as well. 'studying' imparts not only self-discipline but confidence and self esteem as well; and can be great in potentially dealing with "bullies". The only warning would be the demeanor of the sensei(or teacher); your child needs to 'fit' with him/her so meet with first and decide. ...Read more

At the end of the movie, just after his character Dirty Harry has taken out the last bad guy, he says, "A man's got to know his limitations." This applies to women as well. Also, be sure to plan well ahead, use a calendar all the time, and keep a buffer of time in case something takes longer than expected. ...Read more

Not necessarily: I am a neurologist and to my knowledge your description of things is not sufficient to diagnose Asperger syndrome though certainly some features may be present. Other things should also be looked at and ruled out. I would be happy to help direct you in this regard. Write me-www.healthtap.com/DR-Saghafi ...Read more
