Use of the Pediatric Symptom Checklist to screen for psychosocial problems in pediatric primary care: a national feasibility study. (1/661)

BACKGROUND: Routine use of a brief psychosocial screening instrument has been proposed as a means of improving recognition, management, and referral of children's psychosocial morbidity in primary care. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of routine psychosocial screening using the Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) in pediatrics by using a brief version of the checklist in a large sample representative of the full range of pediatric practice settings in the United States and Canada. We evaluated large-scale screening and the performance of the PSC in detecting psychosocial problems by (1) determining whether the prevalence of psychosocial dysfunction identified by the PSC was consistent with findings in previous, smaller samples; (2) assessing whether the prevalence of positive PSC screening scores varied by population subgroups; and (3) determining whether the PSC was completed by a significant proportion of parents from all subgroups and settings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-one thousand sixty-five children between the ages of 4 and 15 years were seen in 2 large primary care networks: the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network and the Pediatric Research in Office Settings network, involving 395 pediatric and family practice clinicians in 44 states, Puerto Rico, and 4 Canadian provinces. Parents were asked to complete a brief questionnaire that included demographic information, history of mental health services, the 35-item PSC, and the number of pediatric visits within the past 6 months. RESULTS: The overall prevalence rates of psychosocial dysfunction as measured by the PSC in school-aged and preschool-aged pediatric outpatients (13% and 10%, respectively) were nearly identical to the rates that had been reported in several smaller samples (12%-14% among school-aged children and 7%-14% among preschoolers). Consistent with previous findings, children from low-income families were twice as likely to be scored as dysfunctional on the PSC than were children from higher-income families. Similarly, children from single-parent as opposed to those from 2-parent families and children with a past history of mental health services showed an elevated risk of psychosocial impairment. The current study was the first to demonstrate a 50% increase in risk of impairment for male children. The overall rate of completed forms was 97%, well within an acceptable range, and at least 94% of the parents in each sociodemographic subgroup completed the PSC form. CONCLUSIONS: Use of the PSC offers an approach to the recognition of psychosocial dysfunction that is sufficiently consistent across groups and locales to become part of comprehensive pediatric care in virtually all outpatient settings. In addition to its clinical utility, the consistency and widespread acceptability of the PSC make it well suited for the next generation of pediatric mental health services research, which can address whether earlier recognition of and intervention for psychosocial problems in pediatrics will lead to cost-effective outcomes.  (+info)

The Montefiore community children's project: a controlled study of cognitive and emotional problems of homeless mothers and children. (2/661)

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the prevalence of emotional, academic, and cognitive impairment in children and mothers living in the community with those living in shelters for the homeless. METHOD: In New York City, 82 homeless mothers and their 102 children, aged 6 to 11, recruited from family shelters were compared to 115 nonhomeless mothers with 176 children recruited from classmates of the homeless children. Assessments included standardized tests and interviews. RESULTS: Mothers in shelters for the homeless showed higher rates of depression and anxiety than did nonhomeless mothers. Boys in homeless shelters showed higher rates of serious emotional and behavioral problems. Both boys and girls in homeless shelters showed more academic problems than did nonhomeless children. CONCLUSION: Study findings suggest a need among homeless children for special attention to academic problems that are not attributable to intellectual deficits in either children or their mothers. Although high rates of emotional and behavioral problems characterized poor children living in both settings, boys in shelters for the homeless may be particularly in need of professional attention.  (+info)

Alexithymia: a facet of essential hypertension. (3/661)

Two hundred thirty-seven newly diagnosed yet untreated hypertensive men and women, 35 to 54 years of age, were compared with an age- and gender-stratified random population sample of 146 normotensive men and women to find out whether psychological distress symptoms, anger expression, and alexithymia are associated with elevated blood pressure and whether the possible associations are independent of sodium and alcohol intake, body mass index, and physical fitness. The independent attributes of mean arterial pressure were studied by multivariate regression analyses after combining the subjects in the hypertensive and control groups. Three questionnaires were used: the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI-37), a 31-item version of the Spielberger State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI), and the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-26). Total scores of the TAS-26 were higher (P<0.001) in hypertensive men and women than in their normotensive control subjects (75.6+/-7.8 vs 64.1+/-9.8 in men and 72.9+/-7.1 vs 57.5+/-11.5 in women). There were no differences between the study and control groups in psychological distress symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and hostility, or in anger expression. In multivariate regression analyses, higher age, male gender, higher sodium intake, lower physical fitness, and alexithymia were independently and highly significantly (P<0.01 for male gender, P<0.0001 for other variables) associated with increased blood pressure, explaining altogether 39.5% of the cross-sectional variation in mean arterial pressure. We conclude that alexithymia, that is, poor ability to experience and express emotions, is associated with elevated blood pressure independent of sodium and alcohol intake, body mass index, and physical fitness.  (+info)

Lifetime low-level exposure to environmental lead and children's emotional and behavioral development at ages 11-13 years. The Port Pirie Cohort Study. (4/661)

The Port Pirie Cohort Study is the first study to monitor prospectively the association between lifetime blood lead exposure and the prevalence of emotional and behavioral problems experienced by children. Lead exposure data along with ratings on the Child Behavior Checklist were obtained for 322 11-13-year-old children from the lead smelting community of Port Pirie, Australia. Mean total behavior problem score (95% confidence interval (CI)) for boys whose lifetime average blood lead concentration was above 15 microg/dl was 28.7 (24.6-32.8) compared with 21.1 (17.5-24.8) in boys with lower exposure levels. The corresponding mean scores (95% CI) for girls were 29.7 (25.3-34.2) and 18.0 (14.7-21.3). After controlling for a number of confounding variables, including the quality of the child's HOME environment (assessed by Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment), maternal psychopathology, and the child's IQ, regression modeling predicted that for a hypothetical increase in lifetime blood lead exposure from 10 to 30 microg/dl, the externalizing behavior problem score would increase by 3.5 in boys (95% CI 1.6-5.4), and by 1.8 (95% CI -0.1 to 11.1) in girls. Internalizing behavior problem scores were predicted to rise by 2.1 (95% CI 0.0-4.2) in girls but by only 0.8 (95% CI -0.9 to 2.4) in boys.  (+info)

Income group differences in relationships among survey measures of physical and mental health. (5/661)

The present research tested the hypothesis that the experience of health is hierarchically organized such that gratification of physical health needs must precede gratification of mental health needs. It was reasoned that because the nondisadvantaged possess greater resources for the gratification of health needs in general, symptoms of mental illness would be more salient for this group and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness. On the other hand, it was reasoned that symptoms of physical illness would be more salient and thus better able to explain variance in both mental and physical illness for the disadvantaged. Results of the study indicate income group differences in patterns of relationships among health variables, supporting the hypothesis and suggesting important differences in the validity of health measures across income groups. The results are related to previous findings in medical sociology, and suggestions for future research are made.  (+info)

Dissociable neural responses to facial expressions of sadness and anger. (6/661)

Previous neuroimaging and neuropsychological studies have investigated the neural substrates which mediate responses to fearful, disgusted and happy expressions. No previous studies have investigated the neural substrates which mediate responses to sad and angry expressions. Using functional neuroimaging, we tested two hypotheses. First, we tested whether the amygdala has a neural response to sad and/or angry facial expressions. Secondly, we tested whether the orbitofrontal cortex has a specific neural response to angry facial expressions. Volunteer subjects were scanned, using PET, while they performed a sex discrimination task involving static grey-scale images of faces expressing varying degrees of sadness and anger. We found that increasing intensity of sad facial expression was associated with enhanced activity in the left amygdala and right temporal pole. In addition, we found that increasing intensity of angry facial expression was associated with enhanced activity in the orbitofrontal and anterior cingulate cortex. We found no support for the suggestion that angry expressions generate a signal in the amygdala. The results provide evidence for dissociable, but interlocking, systems for the processing of distinct categories of negative facial expression.  (+info)

The three dimensions of headache impact: pain, disability and affective distress. (7/661)

It is increasingly recognized that pain measures alone provide incomplete information about the impact of pain on functioning or quality-of-life. A wide range of measures that promise to provide additional information about the impact of pain on people's lives are thus coming into use. In order to clarify the construct of headache impact, we attempted to identify the dimensions assessed by a set of 22 headache-impact measures and to identify the specific measures that best assessed each of these headache-impact dimensions. Adults (n=329) with frequent benign headache disorders completed a comprehensive assessment battery that included 22 headache-impact measures. Factor analysis was then used to identify dimensions underlying the headache-impact measures. Three factors labeled Affective Distress, Pain Density and Disability best accounted for correlations among headache-impact measures. Interfactor correlations ranged between 0.37 and 0.20, suggesting three correlated but separable impact dimensions. These results suggest the construct of headache impact needs to be broadened beyond pain and disability to include affective distress. An adequate assessment of the impact of recurrent headache disorders in clinical trials and other research may require measures from all three of the headache-impact dimensions identified here.  (+info)

Eating disordered patients: personality, alexithymia, and implications for primary care. (8/661)

BACKGROUND: Eating disorders are becoming more apparent in primary care. Descriptions of character traits related to people with eating disorders are rarely reported in the primary care literature and there is little awareness of the implications of alexithymia--a concept that defines the inability to identify or express emotion. We hypothesised that many individuals with active eating disorders have alexithymic traits and a tendency to somatize their distress. AIM: To analyse the character traits and degree of alexithymia of a selected group of women with active eating disorders and in recovery, and to recommend responses by members of the primary care team that might meet the needs of such individuals. METHOD: Letters were sent to 200 female members of the Eating Disorders Association who had agreed to participate in research. Seventy-nine women volunteered to complete four postal questionnaires. This gave a response rate of 38.5%. Responders were categorised into three groups--anorexic, bulimic, and recovered--using the criteria of the Eating Disorders Inventory (EDI-2). The results of the 16PF5 Personality Inventory (16PF5) and the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-20) were analysed using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and correlated using Pearson's correlation. A biographical questionnaire was also completed. RESULTS: In all three subgroups, high scores were achieved on the 16PF5 on 'apprehension and social sensitivity', while there were significant differences in the scores for 'privateness': a scale that measures the ability to talk about feelings and confide in others. On the TAS-20, 65% of the anorexic and 83% of the bulimic group scored in the alexithymic range compared with 33% of the recovered group. There was a significant negative correlation between alexithymia and social skills such as 'social and emotional expressivity' on the 16PF5. CONCLUSION: The results of this study emphasise the difference between those with active eating disorders who achieved high scores for privacy, introversion, and alexithymia, and those who have recovered. These character traits give potential helpers an important indication of the areas that can both block and facilitate recovery, and they act as a reminder that the presenting symptoms in eating disorders and other psychosomatic conditions are the outward presentation of internal conflict. It is suggested that effective screening and needs assessment will facilitate a more appropriate and prompt therapeutic response. This may be provided in the primary care setting where appropriate training has occurred.  (+info)

Alexithymia /ˌeɪlɛksəˈθaɪmiə/ is a personality construct characterized by the subclinical inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. The core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relating. Furthermore, people with alexithymia have difficulty in distinguishing and appreciating the emotions of others, which is thought to lead to unempathic and ineffective emotional responding. Alexithymia occurs in approximately 10% of the population and can occur with a number of psychiatric conditions. The term alexithymia was coined by psychotherapist Peter Sifneos in 1973. The word comes from Greek α (a, "no", the negating alpha privative), λέξις (léxis, "word"), and θυμός (thymos, "emotions", but understood by Sifneos as having the meaning "mood"), literally meaning "no words for mood". Alexithymia is considered to be a personality trait that places affected individuals at risk for other medical and ...
Alexithymia refers to a cluster of emotion-related deficits such as difficulty attending to and identifying ones feelings. Although not a diagnosable psychiatric condition, alexithymia is considered a personality risk factor for multiple pathologies, including somatoform, substance use, eating, and mood disorders. Evidence suggests heritability, but few studies have examined the influence of specific genes on alexithymic traits. Candidate genes explored thus far include those involved in modulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and dopamine, two neurotransmitters whose functions have been implicated in human emotion processing. This study investigated the relationship between the C270T polymorphism of the BDNF gene, facets of alexithymia, and possible interactions with the COMT, DAT1, and ANKK1 genes in a sample of 130 healthy adults. Given the multidimensionality of the alexithymia construct and its overlap with the related constructs of emotional intelligence and mood awareness, we used
Emotional disturbance includes schizophrenia. The term does not apply to children who are socially maladjusted, unless it is determined that they have an emotional disturbance. Intellectual Disability means significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning, existing concurrently with deficits in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period, that adversely affects a childs educational performance. Hearing impairment means an impairment in hearing, whether permanent or fluctuating, that adversely affects a childs educational performance but that is not included under the definition of deafness in this section. Multiple Disabilities means concomitant impairments (such as mental retardation-blindness or mental retardation-orthopedic impairment), the combination of which causes such severe educational needs that they cannot be accommodated in special education programs solely for one of the impairments. Multiple disabilities do not include deaf-blindness. Orthopedic ...
Cocaine is a highly addictive psychostimulant drug extracted from the leaves of coca plant. Listed as a Schedule II drug in the United States, it has a high potential for abuse. As such, the medical usage of cocaine is almost nonexistent and it is a mere recreational drug that surpasses its medical usage. Its only known medicinal usage is as a topical anaesthetic.. Cocaine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that speeds up respiration, blood pressure and heart rate. It also raises energy, alertness, wakefulness, focus and attention while suppressing appetite. Due to its ability to increase energy and confidence, it is a popular party drug at social events. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) report, an estimated 1.9 million people aged 12 and above are the current users of this illicit drug in the U.S.. In the absence of effective interventions, the chronic users of cocaine witness adverse impacts on their brain functions depending on the frequency of ...
In 1982, Jane Knitzers Unclaimed Children described continued nationwide failure to provide services for children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbances. Since 1982, there has been considerable change in the philosophy, administration, and operation of services for this population. The current study compared state child and adolescent (C/A) mental health systems to those described in Unclaimed Children. Present findings are based on surveys of State Mental Health Representatives for Children and Youth in 1988/89 and 1993. Results indicated a marked increase in the number of state administrative offices and staff for C/A mental health. Much pertinent legislation had been passed.

Our study showed that alexithymia, that is, poor ability to experience and express emotions and proneness to externally oriented thinking, differentiates men and women with untreated hypertension from their normotensive control subjects, whereas anger expression (including suppressed anger) or psychological distress symptoms (including anxiety, depression, and hostility) do not. Hypertensive women had more somatization (bodily sensations) than did normotensive women. In accordance with earlier studies, higher age,16 male gender,32 33 higher sodium intake,16 and lower physical fitness19 20 were associated with elevated blood pressure. Almost 40% of the cross-sectional variation in mean arterial pressure was attributed to age, gender, sodium intake, physical fitness, and alexithymia. Age, gender, and lifestyle factors alone explained ≈25% of the variation in mean arterial pressure. A relatively small portion of the association between blood pressure and alexithymia was mediated by lifestyle ...

The fourth component and pre-requisite of diagnosis of RSD is insomnia and emotional disturbance. The fact that the sympathetic sensory nerve fibers carrying the sympathetic pain and impulse up to the brain terminate in the part of the brain called "limbic system". This limbic (marginal) system which is positioned between the old brain (brainstem) and the new brain (cerebral hemispheres) is mainly located over the temporal and frontal lobes of the brain. The disturbance of function of these parts of the brain results in insomnia, agitation, depression, irritability, and disturbance of judgment. Insomnia is an integral part of an untreated RSD. So are problems of depression, irritability and agitation ...
Nutrient deficiencies can result from poor diet or malabsorption in the gut, and affect mood as it does overall health. The dramatic increase in depression may result from nutritionally deficient overly-refined, processed foods. The Organic Acids Test (OAT) detects underlying nutritional deficiencies, fatty acid metabolism, neurotransmitter production, and microbial levels that may cause depression.. The more the toxins and food allergens enter the bloodstream, the weaker your immune system becomes and the more "sick all over" you feel. When the Candida toxin acetaldehyde reacts with the neurotransmitter dopamine, it can cause mental and emotional disturbances such as anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and feeling spaced-out. Organic acids testing will reveal levels of Candida in the patient.. The Organic Acids Test also measures metabolites of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin, as well as vitamins C and B6, important cofactors in neurotransmitter ...

Medical insurance may be required to cover mental health disorders the same way they would cover physical ailments after a federal court of appeals ruling on August 26.. The ruling came after Blue Shield denied to pay for a Northern California womans anorexia treatment. Judge William A. Fletcher of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals stated that while the womans insurance plan with Blue Shield did not cover her treatment, the California Mental Health Parity Act does.. "The law signifies a sameness," said Dr. Nikki Saltzburg, staff psychologist for CSUN University Counseling Services. "It will reduce the stigma placed upon mental illness and puts it on the same level of a physical medical issue.". Under the Mental Health Parity Act, medical insurance companies are required to cover nine mental health disorders: schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism, serious emotional disturbances in children and adolescents, eating disorders, panic ...
... Elise Wade Long Eric E. McCollum, Ph.D., Chair Human Development (Abstract) Although there is significant prevalence of serious emotional disturbance in adolescents, research concerning the determination of appropriate levels of care is lacking. This study examined predictors of successful treatment completion in male adolescents (n=132) who were admitted to a suburban residential treatment center during a ten year period. Data on pre-treatment client variables, family participation in treatment, and length of stay were collected on each subject. Data were collected by sequentially reviewing 132 file records of previously discharged clients. Five variables (age upon admission, family constellation, family participation, previous out-of-home placements, criminal involvement) did not predict successful treatment completion. A significant relationship was found between length of stay in residential ...

Five key elements successfully addressed these and other challenges:. Investment in dedicated staff resources. The Durham Center led the development of a cross-system infrastructure to establish the SOC by funding two part-time positions dedicated to SOC development. Simultaneously, Dukes Center for Child and Family Policy actively supported the effort by partially funding another position. This team of three people promoted, developed, and managed Durhams emerging SOC. By 2005, the school system and county Departments of Social Services and Public Health also reallocated internal resources to establish positions to support the SOC.. Relevancy and incentive. Staff identified the most pressing challenges facing each of the key public agencies and how the SOC might address them, helping each agency to better meet its mandates and priorities. A common theme emerged: Each agency was struggling to address the needs of children with serious emotional disturbances and their families.. A "case review" ...
Women undergoing IVF show a high prevalence of depressive and anxiety symptoms. Furthermore, stress has harmful consequences on IVF and pregnancy outcomes. An immunological cascade was suggested to be involved in the process. Treatment in this setting is usually psychotherapy rather than pharmacotherapy, despite reasonable biological evidence suggesting beneficial influence of antidepressant therapy on pregnancy and well-being. Moreover, pharmacotherapy is more available and affordable than psychotherapy in the public health system. The investigators suggest to study the efficacy of antidepressant treatment in women undergoing IVF treatment, presenting with mild mood symptoms. The investigators hypothesize that treatment will result in a greater attenuation of affective symptoms, as well as in higher pregnancy success rates. Furthermore, certain immunological stress-reactive factors, may prove to be the biological mechanism underlying these effects ...

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy technique designed to help people heal from the emotional distress caused by negative life experiences. Therapists at Enterhealth, a science-based drug and alcohol treatment center in Dallas, are finding tremendous success in promoting sustained recovery by using EMDR to free patients from the distress caused by traumatic memories. EMDR therapy allows them to reprocess trauma they have experienced to resolve the emotional disturbance. When a person is very upset, the brain does not process information normally. This means that remembering a traumatic event, no matter how long ago it happened, can feel as upsetting as when the event occurred. This distressing experience can overwhelm the brains natural ability to cope with emotional stress, which often leads the person to adopt harmful coping strategies (including isolating behavior or self-medicating with drugs or alcohol). "When treating someone for addiction to drugs or ...
Academic Decline In 1981 Hamaker wrote, Along with the rest of the country, Michigans scholastic achievement scores have been dropping steadily for two decades. The downward spiral continues - and it is linked to nutrient deficiency. It is an established and accepted fact that impaired mental function results from nutrient deficiency. The brain requires a vast array of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and amino acids to produce neurotransmitters (brain chemicals that pass messages from cell to cell) and other important brain compounds. Altered brain chemistry can result from deficiency of just a single nutrient, giving rise not only to diminished mental capacity, but also to mental/emotional disturbances and behavioral disorders such as hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, depression, eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia), drug and alcohol addiction, autism and violence. If impaired mental function results from nutrient deficiency, then improving nutritional intake ...

The term alexithymia was proposed in the 1970s by Sifneos 10 at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston (MA, USA). Translated literally from the Greek, it means "a lack of words to express ones feelings". In practice, alexithymic individuals show a reduction in, or the absence of, symbolic thought, a limited ability to fantasise and difficulty in expressing their feelings in words 21 and in identifying physical sensations, such as pain or dyspnoea. Additional characteristics include a high degree of social conformity, stereotyped interpersonal relationships, difficulties in the expression of conflicts and an immature personality 21, 22. The present results are in agreement with previous findings relating the prevalence of alexithymia to older age and lower levels of education, and possibly to an intellectual limitation in verbalising feelings and physical sensations 23, 24. The influence of sex is not well established, although it appears to be more prevalent in males 25. Studies such as that of ...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) may be associated with impaired perception of facial emotions. However, emotion recognition mediated by bodily postures has never been examined in these patients. Moreover, several studies have suggested a relation between emotion recognition impairments and alexithymia. This is in line with the idea that the ability to recognize emotions requires the individuals to be able to understand their own emotions. Despite a deficit in emotion recognition has been observed in MS patients, the association between impaired emotion recognition and alexithymia has received little attention. The aim of this study was, first, to investigate MS patients abilities to recognize emotions mediated by both facial and bodily expressions and, second, to examine whether any observed deficits in emotions recognition could be explained by the presence of alexithymia. Thirty patients with MS and 30 healthy matched controls performed experi- mental tasks assessing emotion discrimination and ...
3. Tears remove toxins.. Biochemist William Frey, who has been researching tears for as long as Ive been searching for sanity, found in one study that emotional tears-those formed in distress or grief-contained more toxic byproducts than tears of irritation (think onion peeling).

Crying can elevate mood.. Do you know what your manganese level is? No, neither do I. But chances are that you will feel better if its lower because overexposure to manganese can cause bad stuff: anxiety, nervousness, irritability, fatigue, aggression, emotional disturbance and the rest of the feelings that live inside my happy head rent-free. The act of crying can lower a persons manganese level. And just like with the toxins I mentioned in my last point, emotional tears contain 24 percent higher albumin protein ...
The collection of readings deals with teaching and managing both emotionally disturbed children and children who are in a state of emotional disturbance or conflict due to external factors. The readings in the first chapter, selected from fictional and non fictional literature and other sources, illustrate how it feels to be emotionally disturbed by describing what the disturbed child feels like from within. The chapter is divided into three parts: one pictures basic intrapsychic difficulties, the second shows aspects of society which breed disturbed behavior, and the third concerns drug use. Other chapters contain selections on identification and diagnosis of the disturbed child, kinds of help available (individual psychotherapy, therapies with different media, group therapy), kinds of schools and programs available, teaching strategies (the behavior modification, educational, behavioral science, and social competence models and, particularly, the psychoeducational model), mental hygienic ...
The overall long-term goal of this project is to prevent AD, which affects almost 50% of the US population over 85 years of age, and is the most common cause of dementia. Clinical signs and symptoms of AD include cognitive impairments, especially memory and emotional disturbances. In order to accomplish this goal of prevention, a population at risk must be identified. Evidence suggests that both TBI and PTSD increase risk for cognitive decline, AD, and dementia.. TBI and PTSD are common problems resulting from military service. Thus far, there have been no prospective studies using imaging and biomarkers, which directly measure changes in the brain and AD pathology to study the effects of TBI and PTSD. This proposed study will provide novel data to test these hypotheses. The results will have major implications for identifying, subjects at increased risk for AD, a possible need for early detection of AD in military Veterans with histories of TBI and PTSD, and a possible need to employ prevention ...

Continued From Above... The result can be a goiter, an enlargement of the thyroid gland. In some parts of the world, iodine is so scarce that most of the population has goiters. The parathyroid glands are four small oval bodies located on either side of and on the dorsal aspect of the thyroid gland. These glands control the level of calcium in the blood. The thyroid gland secretes hormones that regulate energy, and emotional balance may rely upon its normal functioning. When the rate of production is excessive, the results can be weight loss, nervousness, or even emotional disturbances. If the rate of production is excessively low, a slowing of bodily functions may result. The parathyroid glands, located behind the thyroid, control the blood-calcium level. Calcium is important, not only for bones and teeth, but also for nerve functioning, muscle contractions, blood clotting and glandular secretion. If we dont have enough calcium for these functions, the body will take it from the bones, causing ...

In further work-up, the patient reports that she was recently abandoned by her boyfriend after he learned about the pregnancy.

Hello, I just wanted to hear some feedback on your childrens stories about what they are going through with dealing with Scoliosis. Emotional problems, recovery and progression of this disease. My son has grown 9 inches since September and this is a fast progressing case.

We live in Washington State and as far as I know there is only one doctor that will
Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious disorder with long-term consequences for those afflicted. No evidence-based care is available for adults with full or subthreshold AN. The thesis research investigated aspects of emotion and cognition relevant to the maintenance of AN that might inform psychological treatment. In addition, the effectiveness of a recent psychotherapy model of AN was investigated.. Study I investigated alexithymia and emotional awareness and their associations with depression, anxiety, and perfectionism among patients with AN compared with a control group. The AN group exhibited the same level of emotional awareness as did the control group and the same level of alexithymia when controlling for depression and anxiety. Alexithymia and emotional awareness were not associated, despite representing an overlapping construct. The results of the present study indicate that those with AN can trust their emotional awareness.. Study II explored implicit pro-thin and anti-fat attitudes ...
Background: Psychosocial and emotional factors are important in childhood asthma. Nevertheless, drug therapy alone continues to be the main treatment. Treatment programmes that include behavioural or psychological interventions have been developed to improve disturbed family relations in the families of children with severe asthma. These approaches have been extended to examine the efficacy of family therapy to treat childhood asthma in a wider group of patients. This review systematically examines these studies. Objectives: Recognition that asthma can be associated with emotional disturbances has led to the investigation of the role of family therapy in reducing the symptoms and impact of asthma in children. The objective of this review was to assess the effects of family therapy as an adjunct to medication for the treatment of asthma in children. Search strategy: We searched the Cochrane Airways Group Specialised Register of trials, and checked the reference lists in trial reports and review ...
A growth hormone deficiency is caused due to disorders in the pituitary gland - the gland which is responsible for the production of growth hormone. What can cause the pituitary gland to become dysfunctional? Age, disease, head trauma, environmental pollution and sedentary lifestyle have all been shown to affect this delicate gland.. When the production of growth hormone by the pituitary gland reduces, linear growth in adults becomes slower than usual. While growth hormone is essential to stimulate regular growth in children, it is vital for the maintenance of the right bone, muscle, and body fat levels in adults. Low levels of growth hormone can lead to emotional disturbances poor motivation and tiredness. Cholesterol levels in an individual can also be negatively affected by a growth hormone deficiency.. There is no particular age when the deficiency of growth hormone may arise in adults. A large number of individuals do not even realize that they are living with Adult Growth Hormone ...

A: Yes. Pursuant to Section 3923.28 of the Revised Code, every group policy that provides coverage for mental or emotional disorders shall provide at least $550 of outpatient benefits for mental or emotional disorders for each eligible person. It is the Departments interpretation that coverage for BBMI is coverage for a mental disorder, therefore in addition to coverage for BBMI, every group policy of sickness and accident insurance must also comply with the requirement to provide at least $550 of outpatient benefits for mental or emotional disorders. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition comments upon the fact that there is not an agreed upon definition of mental disorders and points out that there is much "physical" in "mental" disorders and much "mental" in "physical" disorders. However, it is the Departments view that the more persuasive argument is that coverage for BBMI can not be considered as coverage solely for a physical disorder and therefore ...
Keywords: Premenstrual syndrome; Premenstrual dysphoric disorder; Hormones; Oral contraceptives;Drospirenone Tempestuous premenstrual behavior was described by Hippocrates, who attributed the symptoms to agitated blood seeking escape from the womb. However, it was inthe 1930s that the premenstrual tension syndrome was first delineated, possiblycoinciding with the entry of women into the workforce. In the 1950s, the termPremenstrual Syndrome (PMS) was applied to the physical and psychological symp-toms occurring for up to 2 weeks prior to menses with relief seen after the onset ofthe menstrual period. In the 1990s, criteria were included in the Appendix of theDiagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, 3rd and then 4th edition,describing Late Luteal Phase Dysphoric Disorder (LLPDD) and finally PremenstrualDysphoric Disorder (PMDD), a particularly severe form of Premenstrual Syndromewith an emphasis on the affective symptoms (DSM-IV, 1994). In April, 2000 theAmerican College of ...
Objective Earlier studies documenting the effect of candidate genes on recovery have seldom taken into consideration the impact of emotional distress. Thus, we aimed to assess the modifying effect of emotional distress on genetic variability as a predictor for pain recovery in lumbar radicular (LRP) and low back pain (LBP). Results The study population comprised 201 patients and mean age was 41.7 years. The significant association between MMP9 rs17576 (B = 0.71, 95% CI 0.18 to 1.24, p = 0.009) and pain recovery remained statistically significant after adjusting for pain intensity at baseline, age, gender, smoking, body mass index, pain localization and emotional distress (B = 0.68, 95% CI 0.18 to 1.18, p = 0.008). In contrast, the association between OPRM1 (B = − 0.85, 95% CI − 1.66 to − 0.05, p = 0.038) and pain recovery was abolished in the multivariate analysis (B = − 0.72, 95% CI − 1.46 to 0.02, p = 0.058). Hence, MMP9 rs17576 and emotional distress independently seem to predict ...
