Preliminary data on the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in Brazilian male and female juvenile delinquents. (1/5)

The aim of the present investigation was to study the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in a sample of delinquent adolescents of both genders and to compare the prevalence between genders. A total of 116 adolescents (99 males and 17 females) aged 12 to 19 on parole in the State of Rio de Janeiro were interviewed using the screening interview based on the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School-Age Children -- Present and Lifetime (KSADS-PL). Data were collected between May 2002 and January 2003. Of 373 male and 58 female adolescents present in May 2002 in the largest institution that gives assistance to adolescents on parole in the city of Rio de Janeiro, 119 subjects were assessed (three of them refused to participate). Their average age was 16.5 years with no difference between genders. The screening interview was positive for psychopathology for most of the sample, with the frequencies of the suggested more prevalent psychiatric disorders being 54% for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, 77% for conduct disorder, 41% for oppositional defiant disorder, 57% for anxiety disorder 57, 60% for depressive disorder 60, 63% for illicit drug abuse, and 58% for regular alcohol use. Internalizing disorders (depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and phobias) were more prevalent in the female subsample. There was no significant difference in the prevalence of illicit drug abuse between genders. There were more male than female adolescents on parole and failure to comply with the sentence was significantly more frequent in females. The high prevalence of psychopathology suggested by this study indicates the need for psychiatric treatment as part of the prevention of juvenile delinquency or as part of the sentence. However, treatment had never been available for 93% of the sample in this study.  (+info)

Rather than operating as an independent self contained unit it has been closely integrated with the local authority social services and educational services.  (+info)

Melatonin treatment in an institutionalised child with psychomotor retardation and an irregular sleep-wake pattern. (5/5)

An institutionalised 13 year old girl with psychomotor retardation suffered from an irregular sleep-wake pattern. Multiple measurements of urinary sulphatoxy-melatonin (aMT6) concentrations were abnormally low, without any significant day-night differences. Administration of exogenous melatonin (3 mg) at 18:00 resulted in increased nocturnal urinary aMT6 concentrations and improvements in her sleep-wake pattern.

Abstract: Background: some cohort studies of ageing and health supplement questionnaire-based surveys with in-home measurements of biological parameters and others have required respondents to attend assessment centres. Centre-based assessments facilitate detailed measurements and novel technologies, but may differentially influence participation. The aim of this paper is to compare the characteristics of participants who attended a centre with those who chose a home assessment and those who did not have a health assessment.. Methods: trained field workers administered a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI) to a random sample of community-dwelling people aged 50 and over in the participants homes. All questionnaire respondents were invited to attend an assessment centre for a comprehensive physical assessment. Participants who refused or were unable to attend a centre were offered a home assessment.. Results: of the 291 participants who completed the CAPI, 176 had a health assessment: ...

I got my bfp a week ago at 10dpo, strangely though, it disappered. I tested the next morning and got a bfn and a faint line on different tests. the next 2 days i got more faint barely there line. I was confused and knowing that i need treatment from the very start i went to the early pregnancy assessment centre at the hospital where i was expecting to be given an injection of 10000units of hcg hormone (part of our plans by rpl doctor) They took a blood test which showed my hcg was only 8, they were not very hopeful because this was 4 days after my initial good dark bfp. I was told to come back in 2 days time for another blood test, if this showed that my hcg was increasing then the pg is viable and then they will start treating me with the weekly hcg injections ...

I also remember Chadswell Assessment Centre, the horrible dirty Pindown childrens home I was kept prisoner in on a place of Safety court order when I was 14 years old. Before that, I remember the 4 big policeman (especially the very tall one with a porky looking face and very dark brown hair) who threatened to hold me by my arms and legs if I didnt take my knickers off and allow the police surgeon to do a vaginal investigation on me to see if I had had sex, and I remember seeing them at the door and hearing them laughing and joking while I was, in effect, being clinically raped, and I remember hardly being able to walk home and shivering like crazy when they finally called my dad to take me home, and my dad putting his big coat round me to keep me warm. I remember all that vividly, and other things as well. ...

I posted a while ago that Ive been given a high risk of Down Syndrome (1:45) and I was wating to hear about getting an appointment at foetal assessment centre to do a CVS. Well there wasnt an assessment centre that could fit me in and Ive now passed the threshold for being able to do a CVS. The next diagnostic test they can do is an amnio, but only at 20 weeks. And results take about 3 weeks, so would be available just befor ethe legal 24 week cut off for terminations. Thats how my doctors rooms put it to me. I must be honest, contemplating a termination at 14-15 weeks was already messing with my moral compass. Theres no possible way I could terminate at just about 6 months! Babies born around then can live. So, given the insane cost of the amnio (equal to about a months income for me) and the fact that it would no longer be a deciding factor then, weve opted not to do it. Ill get monitoring scans every 4 weeks anyway so we should pick up if something looks off. But now I just pray

I know only too well the highly uncomfortable feeling that consumes you when you receive word that you have been invited for an assessment centre which is designed to see how you cope in group activities and just how well you make yourself stand out from the crowd; the sickening feeling you get when you drag yourself to the front of the classroom, that is far too close to be right, to give that dreaded presentation you have been slaving away on all week in front of all your classmates; the butterflies that swarm aimlessly in your tummy when you host a meeting with your companys senior management team to showcase your findings on the project you have been working on; the unease that stiffens your stride as you go to a party where you literally know 2 people who are currently engaged in a discussion with a massive group of people you dont know which means you are left standing alone like a lemon in the corner of the room wondering why you came; the dread that coses up to you went your parents or ...

This implies that many organizations have to make a trade-off - cost for validity, practicality for generality. Second, while some methods perform well at some criteria and poorly at others, very few succeed at all criteria. Assessment centres are probably the most successful (see Table 10.4).. The six criteria provide some interesting issues for those using these methods to consider. A key criterion is cost. Cook notes that interview costs are generally graded as low to medium because interviews vary widely and because the costs are taken for granted as part of the process. In contrast, structured interview costs are high because the system has to be tailor-made and requires a full job analysis. Biodata costs are viewed as low or high, as their categorization depends on how they are used - the cost is high if the inventory has to be specially written for the employer, but it be might be low if ready-made consortium biodata could be used. The cost of using educational qualifications is given ...

The five dots tattoo is a tattoo of five dots arranged in a quincunx, usually on the outer surface of the hand, between the thumb and the index finger. The tattoo has different meanings in different cultures-it has been variously interpreted as a fertility symbol, a reminder of sayings on how to treat women or police, a recognition symbol among the Romani people, a group of close friends, standing alone in the world, or time spent in prison (with the outer four dots representing the prison walls and the inner dot representing the prisoner). Thomas Edison had this pattern tattooed on his forearm. The five dots tattoo is also most prevalent amongst gangsters. For example, in northern California it is a tattoo that symbolizes the membership of the "15 Street Locos", a juvenile institution gang, created and founded in Monterey County, CA and later spread across the county streets. In the US, it is also believed to have spread from Vietnamese gangs, who use it to mean, "A group of friends". Criminal ...

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. July 27, 2001 - Threats of rolling blackouts and skyrocketing energy bills have kept San Francisco State University engineering students and faculty members busy as they continue a valuable program of auditing companies and recommending ways to reduce power consumption and save money. SFSU is the only Northern California site and one of only three universities in California to conduct energy audits through the U.S. Department of Energys Industrial Assessment Center. The next scheduled audit will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2, at Sealy Mattress Manufacturing, 1130 7th St. in Richmond.

On average, the recommended savings amount constitutes about 10 percent to 20 percent of the companys total ...

When one contrasts the answers provided in the survey with the finding ads placed in preparation for international adoption, it becomes clear that almost all of the orphanages surveyed placed a preference for international adoptions. For example, the Guangzhou orphanage in Guangdong claims to have a three-year wait for domestic families, yet this orphanage has adopted internationally at the rate of between 80 and 100 children per year for the last five years. Not all of these children, of course, were healthy young infants, but a high percentage were. Foshan and Qingxin, also in Guangdong, each indicated a wait time of over two years for Chinese families, yet each submits over 25 children annually for international adoption. All of the orphanages in this survey continue to place children internationally, despite the fact that most have families willing to adopt domestically, many with those families waiting several years ...
