Quick Quiz: Kleptomania

All this talk of kleptocracy brought us to the kleptomania page of the DSM. Here's a quick quiz that should help you if you encounter a kleptomania question on the ASWB exam.

According to DSM-5, which of the following is NOT a criterion for kleptomania?

A. Recurrent failure to resist impulses to steal objects that are not needed for personal use or for their monetary value.

B. Decreasing sense of tension immediately before committing the theft.

C. Pleasure, gratification, or relief at the time of committing the theft.

D. The stealing is not committed to express anger or vengeance and is not in response to a delusion or a hallucination.

What do you think?

The answer is in comments.

Heads-up: You won't see "NOT" questions like this on the ASWB exam. You will encounter BEST and FIRST questions, though. To get practice questions in ASWB format, check out the SWTP blog and complete practice exams.

Good luck!
