Introduction: Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) is a mental disorder of children and adolescents. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of persistently irritable or angry moods and frequent temper outbursts. The symptoms may disrupt many areas of a child's life such as Family, School, and social settings in the form of Family conflict, difficulty in an interpersonal relationship with peers and other members of society, and difficulty in academic performance and peer relation at school, School suspensions, and an environment of stress. According to DSM-V diagnostic criteria for diagnosis, the symptoms must be present in at least two of three settings (i.e., at home, at school, with peers) and are severe in at least one of these. The symptoms are observable by parents, family members, peers, and school teachers. Pharmacological and Psychological treatments are two major types of treatment currently used to treat disruptive mood dysregulation disorder symptoms. Psychological treatments include Cognitive-behavioral therapy exposure-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal psychotherapy, Integrative Group, Dialectical Behaviour, Emotion Regulation Training, Parent Training, and Computer-based training. Conclusion: According to DSM-V diagnostic criteria for diagnosis, the symptoms must be present in at least two of three settings and are severe in at least one of these and the symptoms must be observable by parents, family members, peers, and school teachers. The most of the treatment approach is based on teaching or behavior modification, and applicable for children as well as parents teachers, and caregivers, many studies focused on teaching one factor such as either parents or teachers, so teaching one group is not efficient for diagnosis, because identification and treatment need multidimensions approach, it is necessary to train together to all stakeholders responsible for children mental health, it is necessary to educate parents, teachers, and community healthcare workers for better identification because the collaborative decision is beneficial for children with disruptive mood dysregulation disorder.
