Course Description

Impulse control disorders (ICDs), compulsive gambling, and buying, sexual, and eating behaviors are an increasingly recognized serious complication in Parkinson’s disease. Related behaviors include punding (repetitive, purposeless behaviors), dopamine dysregulation syndrome (or compulsive medication overuse), and hobbyism (e.g., compulsive Internet use, artistic endeavors, writing). These disorders adversely affect quality of life, relationships, and caregiver burden and are associated with psychiatric comorbidity.

The participant will identify the clinical characteristics of impulse control disruption in Parkinson’s disease and recognize an intervention strategy.
