DSM IV: Hand behaviors can signal mental disorders!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Fri Apr 22, 2011 7:58 pm

Are you already familiar with the diagnostic manual for mental disorders, titled:
'DSM IV: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Diagnosing Mental Disorders'.

Interestingly, in various sections of this 'authority' (the guidelines are used by health professionals in all regions of the world)... clear references are described which illustrate how certain 'hand behaviors' (gestures & expressions) can signal severe mental conditions- & problems.

Some of the examples related to hands that are mentioned in the DSM IV are:

1 - 'hand biting' can signal AUSTISTIC DISORDERS (page 71);
2 - 'hand tapping' can signal HYPERACTIVITY (page 86);
3 - 'tactile inabilities' can signal DEMENTIA (page 149);
4 - 'trembling hands' can signal SOCIAL PHOBIAS (page 451);
5 - 'cold, clammy hands' can signal ANXIETY (page 452);
6 - 'sleeping on the hands' can signal BREATHING-RELATED SLEEP DISORDERS (page 619);
7 - 'wringling of the hands' can signal AGITATION (page 819).

(NOTICE: The 'DSM V' is expected to be released in 2013)

In the section 'Hand Motorics' of my new website I describe various topics & examples which can play a significant role in the assessment of certain THEMES (diseases & psychological disorders) via the hand, see:

(So far the list of THEMES includes the following: autism, diabetes mellitus, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia)
