Measurement of transference interpretations. (1/141)

The authors present a cost-efficient process rating scale for detailed measurement of how much transference interpretations and related therapist interventions are used in brief dynamic psychotherapy. Theoretical and methodological considerations on how to operationalize and quantify such therapeutic interventions are discussed. The scale had highly satisfactory interrater reliability for three raters, who rated 60 whole sessions from an ongoing randomized study of two manualized forms of brief dynamic psychotherapy. In one treatment group, moderate emphasis on transference analysis was intended. In the other, minor or no use of the studied component was intended. The two treatment groups differed significantly in the use of transference interpretations and related interventions. There was no significant difference in therapists' general therapeutic skill or use of supportive interventions. The treatment differentiation was consistent with the manuals.  (+info)

Psychological sequelae of elective abortion. (2/141)

A mild, short, depressive and guilt ridden period following abortion is quite common, but a severe psychological reaction is rare. The indication for the abortion and the preabortal psychological state of the patient are the two most important factors. Almost all reported instances of postabortion psychoses have occurred in patients who had severe preabortal psychiatric problems. Women undergoing abortion for socioeconomic or psychosocial indications appear to be at minimal risk for long-term negative psychological sequelae. In contrast, women in whom abortion is carried out because of exposure to rubella and the risk of fetal malformation, maternal organic disease or the prenatal diagnosis of a genetically defective fetus are at greater risk and may need supportive psychotherapy.  (+info)

Confirmation of a two-factor model of premorbid adjustment in males with schizophrenia. (3/141)

Because schizophrenia is considered to be a neurodevelopmental disorder, premorbid adjustment is of particular interest. Premorbid adjustment is probably not a unitary construct but rather is expressed across a number of developmental domains. The current investigation examined the validity of a two-factor model that differentiated premorbid adjustment across social and academic domains and evaluated relationships between these premorbid adjustment domains and other variables of interest. Participants with schizophrenia (n = 141) underwent evaluation of premorbid adjustment (using the Premorbid Adjustment Scale), intellectual functioning, and psychiatric symptoms. Using confirmatory factor analysis, a two-factor model of premorbid adjustment was identified that included an academic domain and a social domain. The social domain was associated with symptom variables, while the academic domain was associated with measures of intelligence. Results provide evidence for at least two domains of premorbid adjustment in schizophrenia. Distinguishing between these two premorbid domains may be theoretically important because of potential differences in incidence rates and deterioration courses; some individuals with schizophrenia may exhibit adequate academic adjustment but poor social adjustment, while others may exhibit the opposite pattern.  (+info)

Psychiatric morbidity and impact on hospital length of stay among hematologic cancer patients receiving stem-cell transplantation. (4/141)

PURPOSE: To determine the prevalence of psychiatric disorders during hospitalization for hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (SCT) and to estimate their impact on hospital length of stay (LOS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a prospective inpatient study conducted from July 1994 to August 1997, 220 patients aged 16 to 65 years received SCT for hematologic cancer at a single institution. Patients received a psychiatric assessment at hospital admission and weekly during hospitalization until discharge or death, yielding a total of 1,062 psychiatric interviews performed. Psychiatric disorders were determined on the basis of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition. Univariate and multivariate linear regression analyses were used to identify variables associated with LOS. RESULTS: Overall psychiatric disorder prevalence was 44.1%; an adjustment disorder was diagnosed in 22.7% of patients, a mood disorder in 14.1%, an anxiety disorder in 8.2%, and delirium in 7.3%. After adjusting for admission and in-hospital risk factors, diagnosis of any mood, anxiety, or adjustment disorder (P =.022), chronic myelogenous leukemia (P =.003), Karnofsky performance score less than 90 at hospital admission (P =.025), and higher regimen-related toxicity (P <.001) were associated with a longer LOS. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (P =.009), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (P =.04), use of peripheral-blood stem cells (P <.001), second year of study (P <.001), and third year of study (P <.001) were associated with a shorter LOS. CONCLUSION: Our data indicate high psychiatric morbidity and an association with longer LOS, underscoring the need for early recognition and effective treatment.  (+info)

A 12-year prospective study of the long-term effects of early child physical maltreatment on psychological, behavioral, and academic problems in adolescence. (5/141)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether child physical maltreatment early in life has long-term effects on psychological, behavioral, and academic problems independent of other characteristics associated with maltreatment. DESIGN: Prospective longitudinal study with data collected annually from 1987 through 1999. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Randomly selected, community-based samples of 585 children from the ongoing Child Development Project were recruited the summer before children entered kindergarten in 3 geographic sites. Seventy-nine percent continued to participate in grade 11. The initial in-home interviews revealed that 69 children (11.8%) had experienced physical maltreatment prior to kindergarten matriculation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Adolescent assessment of school grades, standardized test scores, absences, suspensions, aggression, anxiety/depression, other psychological problems, drug use, trouble with police, pregnancy, running away, gang membership, and educational aspirations. RESULTS: Adolescents maltreated early in life were absent from school more than 1.5 as many days, were less likely to anticipate attending college compared with nonmaltreated adolescents, and had levels of aggression, anxiety/depression, dissociation, posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms, social problems, thought problems, and social withdrawal that were on average more than three quarters of an SD higher than those of their nonmaltreated counterparts. The findings held after controlling for family and child characteristics correlated with maltreatment. CONCLUSIONS: Early physical maltreatment predicts adolescent psychological and behavioral problems, beyond the effects of other factors associated with maltreatment. Undetected early physical maltreatment in community populations represents a major problem worthy of prevention.  (+info)

Burn morbidity: a followup study of physical and psychological disability. (6/141)

Fifty-one burn patients were studied in a retrospective manner to determine the effects of the burn injury on their ability to return to their pre-burn physical and social status. The results of this study indicate that: 1) 79% of the patients were able to return to work or school, though 45% required a change in work and 25% were not able to continue with their peer groups in school; 2) the average time of disability was 6 months; 3) there was a significant psychological morbidity as demonstrated by self-confessed depression, juvenile delinquency and divorce. There is a need for awareness of these problems so that proper counseling can be offered to the burn patient and his family both during his hospitalization and after discharge.  (+info)

Reducing long term sickness absence by an activating intervention in adjustment disorders: a cluster randomised controlled design. (7/141)

AIMS: To compare an innovative activating intervention with "care as usual" (control group) for the guidance of employees on sickness leave because of an adjustment disorder. It was hypothesised that the intervention would be more effective than care as usual in lowering the intensity of symptoms, increasing psychological resources, and decreasing sickness leave duration. METHODS: A prospective, cluster randomised controlled trial was carried out with 192 patients on first sickness leave for an adjustment disorder. Symptom intensity, sickness duration, and return to work rates were measured at 3 months and 12 months. Analyses were performed on an intention to treat basis. RESULTS: At 3 months, significantly more patients in the intervention group had returned to work compared with the control group. At 12 months all patients had returned to work, but sickness leave was shorter in the intervention group than in the control group. The recurrence rate was lower in the intervention group. There were no differences between the two study groups with regard to the decrease of symptoms. At baseline, symptom intensity was higher in the patients than in a normal reference population, but decreased over time in a similar manner in both groups to approximately normal levels. CONCLUSION: The experimental intervention for adjustment disorders was successful in shortening sick leave duration, mainly by decreasing long term absenteeism.  (+info)

Quality of rehabilitation among workers with adjustment disorders according to practice guidelines; a retrospective cohort study. (8/141)

AIMS: To assess the quality of occupational rehabilitation for patients with adjustment disorders and to determine whether high quality of care is related to a shorter period of sickness absence. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted by means of an audit of 100 files of patients with adjustment disorders who visited their occupational physicians. Quality of rehabilitation was assessed by means of 10 performance indicators, derived from the guidelines for the treatment of employees with mental health disorders. Performance was dichotomised into optimal and deviant care according to explicit criteria. The performance rates were related to time until work resumption during a one year follow up period. Kaplan-Meier survival analyses and Cox proportional hazards analysis were used to study this relation. RESULTS: Four of 10 performance rates were below 50%: continuity of care (34%), interventions aimed at providers of care in the curative sector (39%), assessment of impediments in the return to work process (41%), and assessment of symptoms (45%). The highest performance rate concerned assessment of work related causes (94%). Overall optimal care was found in 10% of the cases. Median time to complete recovery was 195 days (IQR 97 to 365), and 73% of all patients recovered completely after one year. Optimal continuity of care was significantly related to a shorter time to both partial and complete work resumption (hazard ratio (HR) 0.3; CI 0.2 to 0.6) independently of other performance indicators. Performance regarding interventions aimed at the organisation was also related to a shorter time until first return to work (HR 0.5; CI 0.3 to 0.9). CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the rehabilitation process of employees with adjustment disorders leaves significant room for improvement, especially with regard to continuity of care. Quality of care was partly related to a better outcome. More rigorous study designs are needed to corroborate these findings.  (+info)

Adjustment disorders are quite common in children and adolescents. They occur equally in males and females. While adjustment disorders occur in all cultures, the stressors and the signs may vary based on cultural influences. Adjustment disorders occur at all ages, however, it is believed that characteristics of the disorder are different in children and adolescents than they are in adults. Differences are noted in the symptoms experienced, severity and duration of symptoms, and in the outcome. Adolescent symptoms of adjustment disorders are more behavioral such as acting out, while adults experience more depressive symptoms.. ...
Adjustment disorder is a common condition that has a prevalence that ranges from 3 - 10% in regular healthcare settings. It is often undiagnosed by family doctors. Adjustment disorder can be diagnosed in both children and adults; however, children with AjD tend to show it through their behavior (acting out) rather than through their emotional state (a depressed mood). Adult women are diagnosed with adjustment disorder twice as often as adult men.. ...

Background. Individual-based cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is in short supply and expensive.. Aims. The aim of this randomised controlled trial (RCT) was to compare mindfulness-based group therapy with treatment as usual (primarily individual-based CBT) in primary care patients with depressive, anxiety or stress and adjustment disorders.. Method. This 8-week RCT ( ID: NCT01476371) was conducted during spring 2012 at 16 general practices in Southern Sweden. Eligible patients (aged 20-64 years) scored ⩾10 on the Patient Health Questionnaire-9, ⩾7 on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale or 13-34 on the Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (self-rated version). The power calculations were based on non-inferiority. In total, 215 patients were randomised. Ordinal mixed models were used for the analysis.. Results. For all scales and in both groups, the scores decreased significantly. There were no significant differences between the mindfulness and control ...
The criteria to diagnose someone with AD include that (1) the symptoms must clearly follow a stressor, (2) symptoms should be more severe than would be expected, (3) no underlying disorders, and (4) symptoms present are not part of a normal grieving process.. Adjustment disorders are also classified as either acute or chronic:¹. 6 months or less (acute) - In these cases, symptoms may go away on their own, especially if the individual actively follow self-care measures.. More than 6 months (chronic) - In these cases, symptoms will most likely continue to disrupt the individuals life without professional treatment.. How is AD treated?. Most often, the treatment for AD is psychotherapy (also known as counselling or talk therapy).This therapy can consist of group therapy, individual therapy or family therapy. This helps establish a support system and learning healthy coping skills. In some cases, medication may be prescribed to help combat symptoms of depression and anxiety. References ...

Tenderness is the language of the young children, of those who need the other. A childs love for mom and dad grows through their touch, their gaze, their voice, their tenderness. I like when I hear parents talk to their babies, adapting to the little child, sharing the same level of communication. This is tenderness: being on the same level as the other. God himself descended into Jesus to be on our level. This is the same path the Good Samaritan took. This is the path that Jesus himself took. He lowered himself, he lived his entire human existence practicing the real, concrete language of love. Yes, tenderness is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women. Tenderness is not weakness; it is fortitude. It is the path of solidarity, the path of humility. Please, allow me to say it loud and clear: the more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly. If you dont, your power will ruin you, and you will ...
Objectives: Stressful life events (SLEs) have been associated with adjustment problems in ado- lescence (APA) in cross-sectional studies. Using a longitudinal cohort, we examined the influence of these events and predefined covariates on APA and compared internalizing and externalizing trajectories among children with many versus few SLEs. Methods: Data were obtained from the Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development. One thousand three hundred sixty-four children and their families were followed from childs birth until age 15 years. Adjustment problems at age 15 years were defined as high ( > 60 T-score) internalizing and/or externalizing problems on the Youth Self-Report and Child Behavior Checklist. Stressful life events were evaluated at 54 months, and third and fifth grade. Categories created by mixture model analyses for covariates were used in logistic regressions to predict adjustment problems. Results: Mothers reported higher rates of adjustment problems than adolescents ...

This paper addresses consequences of exposure to violence and trauma. Traumata are defined as events with an extraordinary threat or catastrophic extent. Beside Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), affected people may develop Complex PTSD, Prolonged Grief Disorder or Adjustment Disorder as direct consequences of exposure with extreme stress. Indirect trauma-related disorders are amongst others Major Depression, Substance Dependency and Personality Disorders. These disorders develop often comorbid to PTSD. The likelihood to develop a PTSD at one point during the life course is 1-4 % in Germany. A PTSD is diagnosed if for any length of time the traumatic situation is re-experienced (e.g. in pictures or nightmares), potential triggers are avoided, emotional reactivity is numb and a permanent hyperarousal is experienced. The intensity, the duration and the frequency of traumatic experiences as well as the lack of social support after the trauma are important risk factors for the development of a ...

Objective: To examine the demographic and clinical differences between men and women admitted to a Physicians Health Programme (PHP). Method: Retrospective chart-review of 778 medical records of physicians admitted to the Barcelona PHP from February 1st 1998 until December 31st 2015. Results: Women admitted to the Barcelona PHP were younger than men, were more likely to be self-referred and to be admitted forfor a non-addictive mental disorder. Prevalence of unipolar affective disorders (60.1% vs. 37.6%), adjustment disorders (62.4% vs. 37.6%) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (61.1% vs. 38.9%) was significantly higher among women while prevalence of alcohol use disorders was lower (32.7% vs. 67.3%). Nevertheless, both groups were similar with regards to medical specialty, working status, length of their first treatment episode, and presence of hospitalization during that episode. After multivariate analysis, age, type of referral and main diagnosis (addictive disorders vs. other mental disorders)
Kesava Jataka is about a psycho physiological reaction following separation and this reaction is much similar to the adjustment disorder that has been illustrated in the DSM. According to the story the ascetic Kesava lived in Himalaya forest with five hundred pupils. A Brahmin student of Kasi was his senior pupil. Once Kesava went to Benares and the King invited him to live in the royal park as his guest. He was given all the comforts by the King. Although he had all the facilities at the royal park Kesava became nostalgic. He missed the Himalaya forest and his students. Kesava fell ill of loneliness, and the five physicians of the king could not cure him. Kesava looked depressed and he neglected his mediations and self care. His appetite was changed and he ate very little. He could not sleep at nights. At his own request he was taken to the Himalaya forest by the kings minister. When he went to his familiar surrounding and met his students Kesava had a spontaneous recovery. Again Kesava ...

Unfortunately, its been a number of years since we have seen the Crown Princess Scroll Tiara. We rarely see Masako in a tiara since she withdrew from much of her public life after she began suffering from what has been termed an adjustment disorder, popularly speculated to have been caused by the strict life of the Japanese imperial court and the intense pressure to produce a much-needed heir. (The couple welcomed a daughter, Aiko, eight years after their marriage, but only males are eligible to inherit the throne. Discussion of changing the policy halted when Naruhitos brother, Prince Akishino, and his wife had a son.) We do occasionally see her arriving for the New Years event in the car, but for the past few years she has chosen her second tiara - a pearl-tipped fringe that was also worn by Michiko - for that job. Masako, who celebrated her 50th birthday this week, has been showing signs of improvement, notably traveling to the inauguration in the Netherlands earlier this year. So ...

It has been estimated that 40% to 70% of individuals with mental retardation have diagnosable psychiatric disorders.4 This subgroup of individuals, however, are not the only ones who come in contact with psychiatrists. Like anyone else, a developmentally disabled person may present with emotional, behavioral, interpersonal, or adjustment problems that do not constitute major psychiatric disorders but that may benefit nonetheless from psychiatric input. Psychiatrists should remember that in clinical settings they do not have the opportunity to see people with mental retardation living and working in the community in a normal, non-problematic manner. As a result, they often do not have a baseline with which to compare current functioning ...

Materials and Methods: A total of 49 consecutive patients of chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis were included in the study with their consent. The Institute Ethics Committee clearance was obtained before the start of the study. The psychiatric interview was conducted only after the dialysis procedure was over. Patients were assessed using the Schedule for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry and Hamilton rating scale for depression.. Results: A total of 49 patients in the age range of 15-64 years were included in the study. Majority of the sample was males (75.5%). Out of the patients enrolled in the study group, 45% had psychiatric comorbidity which included depression (26%), adjustment disorder (12.2%), generalized ...

Methods Participants were patients referred to the regional Department of Occupational Medicine. Inclusion criteria were (i) sick leave due to work-related stress complaints and (ii) a diagnosis of adjustment disorder/reactions to stress or mild depression.

On-label usage includes the treatment of anxiety disorders, fears, irritability and decreased mood.. Its anxiolytic action is comparable to benzodiazepines and confirmed by various studies.. In a comparative study on 189 patients with adjustment disorder with anxiety, one group of patients took 150mg of Stresam daily for 28 days, while the other group took 2mg of Lorazepam (Ativan). The treatment efficiency was similar for both drugs regarding mean HAM-A score. However, more people from etifoxine group responded to the treatment by the day 28 (72% and 56%). The first group also experienced fewer side effects compared to lorazepam group and fewer cases of rebound anxiety. Similar results were obtained in the comparative study of Stresam with Alprazolam (Xanax).. In a double-blind placebo-controlled study on healthy adults performed to evaluate the adverse effects of Stresam and Lorazepam, Stresam did not caused amnesia and sedation as Lorazepam.. Another study was carried out to compare the ...

Pulse 2 Anesthesia for the Bariatric Patient: Optimizing Safety and Managing Complications oximetry is used for the monitoring of oxygenation during the perioperative period and should be maintained as long as patients remain at increased risk for airway compromise [24]. Capnography is used to monitor ventilation intraoperatively. End-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) may not accurately reflect arterial carbon dioxide tension (PaCO2) due to ventilation-perfusion mismatch in severely obese patients. Transcutaneous CO2 (TcCO2) monitoring may provide an alternative to end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring, and has been shown to be more accurate than ETCO2 at estimating PaCO2 [25, 26]. Patients with severe and chronic psychiatric disorders, such as adjustment disorders, personality disorders, or major depression, may have more difficulties accepting the behavioral changes imposed by surgery and thus be less likely to achieve successful weight loss [14, 15]. Ultimately, psychological distress secondary to ...
With an estimated 1.4 million deaths per year, lung cancer is the leading cause of death by cancer worldwide. Even with the best available treatment, five-year survival is merely 16% and about 60 to 70% of patients die within the first year after diagnosis [1]. This poor prognosis is often caused by a late diagnosis as the presentation usually occurs when the lung cancer is advanced. Patients may develop burdensome symptoms like pain, dyspnoea, fatigue and cough and they may undergo radical treatment, including surgery, chemo- and radiotherapy. Not surprisingly, lung cancer has a major impact on the psychological wellbeing of patients and their family. Akechi and colleagues [2] showed that 19% of patients with advanced lung cancer meets the criteria of psychiatric disorders, especially depressive and adjustment disorders. Of patients who had been successfully treated for lung cancer 15% met the criteria for a minor or major depressive disorder [3]. The prevalence rate of depressive and anxiety ...

How common is Pyromania?. It is not currently known what how common pyromania is, but it appears to be very rare as a main diagnosis. The lifetime prevalence for fire setting is just over 1% of the population, but simply setting fires alone is not enough to be diagnosed with pyromania, as all of the other symptoms must be present as well.. In those with the disorder, episodes can come and go over a period of time. Research has not been able to document a relationship between setting fires in childhood and pyromania in adulthood. Fires set during childhood or adolescence are often a result of conduct disorder or an adjustment disorder, and do not meet the criteria for pyromania.. Pyromania has been shown to occur much more commonly in males than in females, and especially in males with poorer social skills and learning difficulties.. What are the risk factors for Pyromania?. Risk factors for pyromania have not yet been identified.. What other disorders or conditions often occur with ...

Our client Mr A, from Margate in Thanet, Kent, developed a large incisional hernia following surgery in August 2011 and underwent open mesh surgical repair on a non-urgent basis in March 2013 at the QEQM Hospital Margate.. Unfortunately our client was again admitted to hospital in April 2013 with a non-functioning surgical drain and an infected mesh.. Regrettably the infected mesh was unreasonably left in place until July 2014 which prevented the healing of our clients abdominal wounds. As a result our client suffered Seroma which became infected resulting in 16 months of dressing and two further operations.. As a further consequence of his experiences our client suffered an adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and a depressive reaction.. The Defendant (East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust) conducted unrealistic settlement negotiations and it became necessary to issue court proceedings which resulted in the Defendant agreeing to pay £27,000 compensation..
