Psychotherapeutic and Psychopharmacologic Treatment

Diagnostic Criteria
My assigned neurocognitive disorder for this weeks discussion is major frontotemporal neurocognitive disorder. Per the DSM-5, diagnostic criteria for this disorder includes that criteria are met for both mild and major neurocognitive disorder and that there is an insidious onset and gradual progression (APA, 2013). Either (1) or (2) must be present: (1) the behavioral variant with three or more of the following behavioral symptoms: behavioral disinhibition, inertia or apathy, loss of empathy or sympathy, compulsive/ritualistic, preservative, or stereotyped behavior, or dietary changes and hyperorality (APA, 2013). There is also a prominent decline in executive abilities or social cognition (APA, 2013). (2) is the language variant which includes when the language ability shows a prominent decline including word finding, speech production, grammar, object naming, or word comprehension (APA, 2013). There is a relative sparing of memory, learning, and perceptual-motor function (APA, 2013). The disturbances are also not better explained by another neurodegenerative disease, cerebrovascular disease, the effects of a substance, or another disorder (APA, 2013). The difference in major and mild neurocognitive disorders are subtyped pathologically and etiologically on the basis of associated symptoms, time course, and if they interfere with independence in completing daily activities (APA, 2013).

Antipsychotic medications have been used in this disorder to treat psychosis and agitation, but there is a great risk carried due to the safety and side effect profiles of these medications in this population (Young et al., 2018). However, if caring for extremely violent or disruptive patients with this disorder, these medication benefits may have to outweigh the risks (Tsai
