The authors discuss violence as a current epidemics and violent behavior in children and adolescents. They present a repertory study including the characteristic and peculiar symptoms of 12 patients, with clinical diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and the symptoms corresponding to the diagnostic criteria in the DSMIV transcribed in repertory language. The result is a materia medica for patterns of violent behavior. Keywords: violent behavior, homeopathy, children and adolescents, ADHD, Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
Introduction Violence is a pattern of human behavior characterized by anger, frequently associated to actual or potential physical aggression in order to obtain something. "Violence results from the action or an irresistible power in order to achieve an objective that would not have been achieved without it"(1). Masi Elizalde (2) utilizes the terminology egolysis and alterlysis to name miasmatic dynamics stages related to auto (against oneself), hetero (against others) and eco violence (against environment)(3). Following a worldwide tendency, violence is also increasing in Brazil. Although it is often attributed to violent male outlaw teenagers (47), in fact a relatively small number of youths commit a large part of crimes. Violent behavior is not exclusive of socially marginalized individuals and is not always related to socioeconomic status (8, 9). Children and teenagers, in whom the mind and brain formative process is not yet finished, have difficulty to consider the limits between the real and virtual worlds, thus, beyond environmental socioeconomic conditions, violence presented by the media can act
like a trigger in susceptible individuals to promote violent behavior (1012). This fact is also observed in clinical homeopathic practice, when pathological stimuli and susceptibility are synergic. Children and adolescents in violent settings may exhibit patterns of violent behavior frequently associated to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), with or without Hyperactivity / Impulsiveness (ADHDI). (13,14) ADD, a neuropsychological disturbance that alters the ability to concentrate in tasks and to control impulses and motor activity has become the most frequent health problems in children and one of the main causes of learning disturbance and school failure. It affects around 20% of children in school age and attacks three times more males than females. It usually begins before the age of 7, might continue throughout adolescence to reach adulthood. On the other hand, learning disturbance may be a risk factor for delinquent behavior (1517). In the DSMIV section devoted to Conduct Disorder (CD, CID10 312,8) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD, CID10 313.81) (18), there are listed and classified the diagnostic criteria of behavioral disturbs related to children and adolescents unlawful acts (19). They can be compared to the 7
Tarentula. 37). v. due to the current concept of epidemics. Bufo rana.7. Although violent behavior is associated to many causes. hyperactivity and impulsiveness. issue 22. Chamomilla. it could be spoken as an "energy contagion". Sulphur. Hyosciamus niger. CD and ODD is presented in Table 1. The application of these studies is used to control health problems (Center for Disease Center/AtlantaUSA). Thus. Agaricus. Anacardium orientale. Epidemiology means the "study of the epidemics" and is defined as the study of the distribution and determinants of the states or events related to health in a specific population.36) the peculiar and most characteristic symptoms were extracted. family dynamics. All these symptoms were analyzed together (20. The 25 remedies with the highest potential to elicit the characteristic symptoms of these disturbs on healthy individuals are: Aconitum napellus. Moreover. Phosphorus. Nitric acidum. which investigates the social determinants of disease. Materials and Methods From the records of 12 children and adolescents homeopathically treated for CD. some authors consider violence as a modern epidemics. spiritual conditions. Results and discussion The repertory analysis of the homeopathic symptoms corresponding to ADHDI. March 2008 ©2008 GIRI symptoms contained in the homeopathic repertory (20) and related to the symptoms of egolysis and alterlysis. which would not occur in its absence. in many cases the contact (“contagion”) with or by a violent environment can awake in the susceptible this kind of behavior. it is only a part of children and adolescents living in violent environments who become "infected" by violence precisely those children susceptible to this “contagion”. Lachesis muta. It may sound odd to speak of an “epidemics of violence”. economic. Hepar sulphur. Thus. in a more comprehensive concept. Arsenicum album. Stramonium. As an area in constant transformation (22) it is expanding into other fields of knowledge like sociology and law. The list was completed with the diagnostic criteria for these same disorders as described in DSMIV transcribed into the homeopathic repertory language. epidemiologists are also approaching chronic illnesses. so to be applied by similarity to actual patients.International Journal of High Dilution Research. the understanding of the process of healthillness has improved with the emergence of social epidemiology. The standard treatment of these conditions uses methylphenidate (Ritalin®) or amphetamine. as Kent stated (34). cultural and social conditions. From a classic homeopathy point of view. but in its basic institutions like the family and the work and school environments (2433). homeopathy may be one of them. it can be defined as an abnormal situation in a community. ODD.14. It may cause the same devastating effects as prolonged use of cocaine (21). Causticum. usually associated to the occurrence of an acute infectious disease involving "contagion/infection". Staphisagria. or a change in the miasmatic dynamics (2). experienced trauma.35. Belladona. which may cause the same problems they are able to treat: lack of attention. Opium. etc. p. However. an epidemics is defined as the incidence in a short period of time of a large number of cases of a disease. Mercurius.720. Plumbum.. the search for alternative therapeutic options is justified. ADD and ADHDI (3. According to Barata (23). a potential severe event triggering social pressures that must be answered by the sanitary authorities with the highest urgency. exactly as in the case of infectious biological agents. Calcarea carbonica. threatening populations not only physically. The resulting remedies were classified in decreasing value of coverage. Nux vomica. including biological. as if they belonged to one only patient in order to characterize the symptomatic image of the epidemics. but together with the perception that several factors contribute to the rise of any one disease. The aim of this study is to define homeopathic remedies useful in violent situations affecting children and adolescents. 2) to facilitate the differential diagnosis among them in realtime practice and guide the search in the homeopathic materia medica (3845). Lycopodium clavatum. metabolic. they were not included in our list as they did not present a significant part of the 8 . in order to compose a list of the remedies that when tested on healthy human beings showed a potential to elicit violent acts. An epidemics of violence? Currently. Although some authors (4649) have described other remedies as violent. Veratrum album e Zincum. hyperactive children taking methylphenidate are at a higher risk of developing an addiction. But. The epidemiology of infectious diseases is still of highest importance.
