Experts are seeing an alarming increase in severe emotional and behavioral disorders among young children, characterized by abusive language, physical threats, and violent tantrums.

In this program, ABC News anchors Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson investigate the frightening world of children with severe anger control problems, focusing on how to identify a child at risk and the vital importance of early intervention.

Soothing the Savage Beast [electronic resource]: Venting Rage

Is the physical release of anger in a controlled setting a healthy way to process it? Many angry people say yes-but not all researchers agree: "It's a seductive theory. It does make sense, but it's a myth," says noted psychologist Dr. Brad Bushman. In this program, ABC News anchors Charles Gibson and Connie Chung and correspondent John Stossel set the record straight about two different anger disorders and the methods used to control them. For under-venters, bataka bats and anger release workshops may be the prescription, but for over-venters, an anger management workshop is a better choice.

The Worst Offenders [electronic resource]: Can They Change?

Those who prey upon children for sex have committed crimes so abhorrent that most of us would like to lock them away for life. But in some cases, an offender can be rehabilitated-and, in the process, provide insight into the predator's mind. This program goes inside a pedophile's distorted thought patterns while showing how expert psychological treatment, combined with blunt feedback from fellow offenders, can help bring such criminals out of denial and curb their deviant behavior. Following a professional actor who, using real criminal profiles, takes on the psyche of a child sex offender, the film examines Rolleston Prison's groundbreaking Kia Marama rehabilitation unit in Christchurch, New Zealand.

With unprecedented access to the inner workings of the Houston Police Department's homicide division, this ABC News program offers a rare glimpse into the tactics investigators use to get people to talk. Chris Cuomo reports on murder investigations in which Sgt. Brian Harris, one of the department's most respected interrogators, is able to extract confessions from resistant suspects.

Sleepwalking (Parasomnia) [electronic resource]

Some people wander, get dressed, even eat in their sleep. Others lash out in violent ways. Is it possible that people can commit complex crimes-even murder-while walking in their sleep? With only a dead victim and a seemingly disoriented suspect at the scene of the crime, it's hard to know for sure. This program explores the question, following extensive sleep tests performed on accused murderers in a quest for truth and scientific clarity. But even if science bolsters the sleepwalking defense, could it actually work in a courtroom? More frighteningly, could sleepwalking become a legitimized pretense for murder?
