Resumen

Individuals with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) frequently experience strong reactions to emotionally evocative situations. Difficulties modulating anger and other upsets have clinically significant behavioral consequences. Those with ADHD may have anomalies in emotion generation, emotion expression, or both that predispose to these problems. The association between ADHD and emotion dysregulation raises Important clinical and research issues, including possible heterogeneity in the mechanisms by which they are related. Although first-line treatments for ADHD often help to resolve emotional dysregulation symptoms as well, the evidence base for widespread practice of combination pharmacotherapy remains sparse. Psychosocial treatments that engage processes underlying emotional dysregulation are in development.
