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.. ...

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 ...
Stress exposure has been well-documented as a determinant for the development of several mental disorders, including among others depression, substance use disorders, eating disorders, adjustment disorders and post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). However, little is known about the factors influencing the relationship between stress and psychopathology, especially concerning the interplay of vulnerability and resilience factors as well as the role of different types of stress in the development of psychopathological conditions. In addition, the introduction of the new category

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 ...

The autopsy report of Guantánamo detainee number 78, Mohammad Ahmed Abdullah Saleh al-Hanashi, similarly raises serious questions about the circumstances surrounding his death. The prisoner was said to have strangled himself using elastic bands from his underwear.. The report provides details about the medical and psychiatric condition of the Yemeni detainee at the time of his death. According to the report, al-Hanashi had a "long history" of psychiatric problems at the Joint Task Force penal facility, including "adjustment disorder, anti-social personality disorder and stressors of confinement." (Emphases added.). The presence of psychiatric problems is consistent with a reported "history of suicide gestures and multiple failed suicide attempts" going back to 2003. The previous attempts included methods of killing oneself such as hanging, "self-inflicted sharp force injuries and frequent blunt force trauma to the head," as well as "neck ligature," which is the kind of self-strangulation that ...

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 ...

As a result, they often do not have a baseline with which to compare current functioning ...

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 ...

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..

  • In recent years, there have been a few reports of the relationship between eating disorders in mothers and the psychological adjustment of their children. (lsu.edu)
  • Overall it appears that mothers with eating disorders do not have children who evidence significant eating and behavioral difficulties in early to late childhood, though these mothers described experiencing a high rate of pregnancy and birth complications, high parenting stress, and symptoms of clinical depression.
