Nationally Recognized Psychotherapist, Sex Therapist, and Author of For Better For Worse Forever: Discover the Path to Lasting Love - BEATTY COHAN SELFIES CONSIDERED TO BE A MENTAL DISORDER, ACCORDING TO AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION According to the American Psychiatric Association, the act of taking a selfie can be considered a mental disorder. The disorder has been labeled selfitis and is defined as an obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of oneself and publish it onto social media, like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and so on. Apparently this is to help make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy. Wow, pretty heavy stuff, huh? Now there are a few stages of selfitis, starting with borderline where you take photos 3 times a day but don't necessarily post them on social media. Then there is acute selfitis which includes taking photos of oneself at least 3 times a day and posting it on social media. Then there is also chronic selfitis which is the "uncontrollable urge" to take photos of oneself around the clock and posting them onto social media at least six times a day. At the moment there is no cure for the disorder, but apparently Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be considered as a temporary treatment.
