Impulse Control


The medical dictionary provides readers with the following definition of impulse control :  “The Psychology The degree to which a person can control the desire for immediate gratification or other; impulse control may be the single most important indicator of a person’s future adaptation in terms of number of friends, school performance, and future employment.”

Impulse control is perhaps the most significant issue that plagues teens today. Without effective impulse control, a teen is at risk of engaging in harmful and reckless behaviors that could result in dire consequences. Troubled teens are a large demographic of adolescents who struggle with impulse control and require treatment to effectively and safely make a change for the better.

When a troubled teenage girl is unable to control her behaviors and urges to follow through with risky decisions, this more often than not, results in detrimental consequences for the teen.
