Impulse control / con.trol


The medical dictionary defines impulse control as: “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.”

Those who show poor impulse control, lack self-discipline. If an individual lacks discipline, that individual is subject to participating in harmful, impulsive behaviors. Moreover, those who lack skills of impulse control must develop self-discipline in order to overcome their personal afflictions.

To young men and women who have let their impulse control, or lack thereof, effect or even destroy their life, there is hope. With appropriate therapies and clinical, professional treatment, teens and young adults can develop impulse control.
