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)

Administration of exogenous melatonin (3 mg) at 18:00 resulted in increased nocturnal urinary aMT6 concentrations and improvements in her sleep-wake pattern. Melatonin may help disabled children suffering from sleep disorders.  (+info)

The design and implementation of an assessment centre in the South Yorkshire and South Humberside deanery for selecting doctors into postgraduate training in paediatric medicine is described. Eleven competency domains were identified in the job analysis. An assessment centre comprising of four exercises was implemented to assess candidates. There were modest relationships between candidates performance on the various assessment centre exercises. Outcomes based on interview performance were related to, but not the same as, outcomes based on the combined results of the three other assessment centre exercises. Candidates perceived the assessment centre to be a fair selection method. It is concluded that an assessment centre approach to SHO recruitment is feasible and provides a greater breadth and depth of information about candidates than does a structured interview. ...

University students are routinely influenced by a variety of natural stressors and experience irregular sleep-wake cycles caused by the necessity to trade sleep for studying while dealing with academic assignments. Often these factors result in long-term issues with daytime sleepiness, emotional instability, and mental exhaustion, which may lead to difficulties in the educational process. This study introduces the Daily Sampling System (DSS) implemented as a smartphone application, which combines a set of self-assessment scales for evaluating variations in the emotional state and sleep quality throughout a full academic term. In addition to submitting the daily sampling scores, the participants regularly filled in the Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scales (DASS) reports and took part in resting-state EEG data recording immediately after report completion. In total, this study collected 1835 daily samples and 94 combined DASS with EEG datasets from 18 university students (aged 23-27 years), with ...

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: ...
A perpetual challenge facing any organisation is the development and career growth of its individual employees: measuring an individuals suitability for a current role, identifying associated development needs, and predicting suitability for a future role..

A key aim of the centres is for all participants to return to the workplace with a clearer view of their role within the organisation; a better understanding of their own strengths, weaknesses and areas requiring development; and a defined path for personal ...

Prior to the pandemic, many insurers had been trying to steer consumers to DRP shops for the initial damage repair estimate. In the future, if the vehicle is not operable or the photos suggest the vehicle may be a total loss, theyll attempt to have the vehicle moved to a damage inspection/assessment center with free storage (i.e. auto auction, salvage yard, etc.) for evaluation. If the vehicle is deemed to be repairable, the insurer will aggressively encourage (steer) the consumer to a local DRP service provider for repair. If the vehicle is deemed to be a total loss, it will be where it needs to be. Insurers will avoid many charges often assessed by non-DRP repair shops, such as ...

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 ...

I said STOP quite loudly and told him to stop allowing such negative thoughts to fill his mind. I d done some in-depth work to help him to identify his perfect career and this was it.

Wave 1 and 3 of TILDA included a comprehensive health assessment, with a health assessment also planned for Wave 6 (2020-2021). After completing the CAPI part of the survey at Wave 1, each participant was then invited to travel to one of two health centres (based in Dublin and Cork) for a comprehensive health assessment. At Wave 3, the health centre was based in Dublin only. Participants who were unable / unwilling to attend a health centre were offered a modified and partial assessment in their own home. Health assessments were carried out by qualified and trained research nurses. Cognitive, cardiovascular, gait and balance and vision measurements and tests were taken in the health assessment.

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 ...
