Our expert says:
This is a disorder one should be very cautious about diagnosing, and it too easily shades into a quack concept too often attached to bogus and even dangrous"therapies". If your 13-year old is behaving in a way that worries you, and especially if you feel you have reason to worry that he might harm the other child ( other than the empty sales talk of a quack therapist ) take him to see a properly qualified child psychiatrist for a proper professional assessment and a discussiopn of treatment options if necessary. The diagnosis should NEVER EVER be made or treated except by a fully trained and qualified child psychiatrist or child psychologist
And as Purple says, there have been some highly dangerous and wickedly irresponsible "therapies" used based on such dodgy diagnoses, and they should be avoided at all costs.
