*This website DOES NOT constitute treatment and only provides information and advice in a Q&A format. For treatment (therapy and/or medications) you must go to a licensed professional in your area. Please note that anything said here is not private or confidential, as this is a public forum. Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Diagnosing Intermittent Explosive Disorder is relatively easy with a face to face assessment and clinical history as the symptoms are well pronounced with this disorder. Typically treatment for Intermittent Explosive Disorder involves the use of either Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and the use of an anti-anxiety medication, mood stabilizer, or an atypical antipsychotic used to treat aggression and anger (e.g. Risperidone).
