What Causes Behavioral Problems?

Problem behavior is a complex manifestation that can stem from various factors, necessitating evaluation by psychiatric, mental health, or medical professionals to ascertain its origins.


Several life events and family situations may contribute to problem behavior. Conflict within the family, economic struggles, anxiety, or experiences like the loss of a loved one can act as triggers. Additionally, aging can introduce challenges such as dementia, profoundly influencing an individual's behavior.


Common conditions linked to problem behavior encompass a range of psychiatric and mental health disorders, including:

Symptoms of Behavioral Problems

Problem behaviors are those that deviate from what is typically considered acceptable. While everyone may experience occasional disruptions or errors in judgment, problem behavior is characterized by a recurring pattern that may require attention and intervention.


Problem behaviors vary widely in severity and can manifest in both children and adults. Addressing these behaviors often necessitates medical intervention to understand and ameliorate their underlying causes. Identifying symptoms is crucial for developing targeted strategies that promote healthier behavior patterns:

  • Abuse of Alcohol or Drugs: Engaging in excessive or harmful substance use.

  • Agitation: Restlessness or heightened emotional arousal.

  • Angry, Defiant Behaviors: Exhibiting defiance or hostility towards authority figures.

  • Carelessness: Lack of attention or concern for consequences.

  • Disinterest or Withdrawal from Daily Life: Seeming detached or disengaged from regular activities.

  • Drug Use: Involvement in substance use, indicating potential dependency.

  • Emotional Flatness: Lack of emotional expression or responsiveness.

Behavioral Problems FAQs

  • What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?
    Transcranial magnetic stimulation, often referred to as TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when antidepressant medications haven’t been effective, have ceased working, or as an alternative to medication.
  • How does TMS work?
    TMS involves delivering magnetic pulses to specific parts of the brain.
  • How long is TMS treatment?
    A typical initial course of treatment is about 19-37 minutes daily over 4-6 weeks.
  • Is TMS Therapy covered by my insurance?
    A vast majority of commercial and Medicare plans have recognized the effectiveness of treating depression with TMS Therapy and now cover TMS as part of their plans.
  • Is TMS Therapy a good alternative for patients who cannot tolerate the side effects of antidepressant medications?
    TMS does not circulate in the blood throughout the body, so it does not have side effects like weight gain, sexual dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, sedation, etc. The most common side effects reported during clinical trials were headache and scalp discomfort —generally mild to moderate—occurring less frequently after the first week of treatment
  • Is TMS Therapy like other alternative therapies that use magnets to treat some illnesses?
    No. TMS Therapy involves a unique method of using pulsed magnetic fields for a therapeutic benefit. The intensity of the magnetic field is similar to that of an MRI. These techniques differ radically from the popular use of low intensity, static magnetic fields. Those products deliver weak and undirected static fields that are not capable of activating brain cells. The activation and stimulation of brain cells is a key part of why TMS is so effective.
  • Does it hurt?
    While there may be some minor discomfort at the treatment site (where the device touches your head), it generally subsides within the first week of treatment. There is no sedation, or impact on your alertness. You can read, watch TV, or talk with your treatment coordinator during your session, and you can drive home immediately after treatment.
