Merchandise Description

Author: Stephen Schroeder, Ph.D., Director of Child Research Bureau, University of Kansas

Description:

There is growing research evidence that there is a relationship between depression and self-injurious behavior in persons who have mental retardation. Dr. Schroeder points out research findings that indicate aggression and self-injurious behavior are more common in persons who are diagnosed with depression than in those who are not depressed. This has treatment implications, as affective disorders can be treated with medications, thus reducing aggression and self-injurious behavior.
