Explanations of psychological phenomena seem to generate more public interest when they contain neuroscientific information. Even irrelevant neuroscience information in an explanation of a psychological phenomenon may interfere with peoples abilities to critically consider the underlying logic of this explanation. We tested this hypothesis by giving naïve adults, students in a neuroscience course, and neuroscience experts brief descriptions of psychological phenomena followed by one of four types of explanation, according to a 2 (good explanation vs. bad explanation) x 2 (without neuroscience vs. with neuroscience) design. Crucially, the neuroscience information was irrelevant to the logic of the explanation, as confirmed by the expert subjects. Subjects in all three groups judged good explanations as more satisfying than bad ones. But subjects in the two nonexpert groups additionally judged that explanations with logically irrelevant neuroscience information were more satisfying than ...
The National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A) was designed to estimate the lifetime-to-date and current prevalence, age-of-onset distributions, course, and comorbidity of DSM-IV disorders in the child and adolescent years of life among adolescents in the United States; to identify risk and protective factors for the onset and persistence of these disorders; to describe patterns and correlates of service use for these disorders; and to lay the groundwork for subsequent follow-up studies that can be used to identify early expressions of adult mental disorders. The core NCS-A interview schedule was an adaptation of the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). NCS-A also administered the non-verbal subtest (Matrices subtest) of the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT). In addition to interviewing adolescents, information was collected from a parent or a parent surrogate to obtain an additional perspective on the adolescents mental ...

The centuries-old philosophical idea that man has an image of the self containing an image of the self (of the second order) obtains a new life in the mathematical model of the subject possessing reflexion. One assumption underlying the model is that the subject tends to generate patterns of behavior such that some kind of similarity is established between the subject himself and his second order image of the self. We demonstrate that this model allows a single explanation for three diverse, experimentally observed phenomena: (a) the nonlinear relation between magnitude estimation and categorization of identical stimuli (Parducci, Stevens, Galanter), (b) the avoidance of the value of 0.5 in estimating stimuli equidistant from two samples on a psychological scale (Poulton, Simmonds), and (c) the formal correspondence between, on the one hand, frequency of choice for particular alternatives and, on the other, reinforcement rate, found in some experiments with animals and people (Herrnstein, Baum). ...
Nonetheless, our conclusion that the allure of neuroscience is conceptual rather than pictorial should be further explored in future studies. A promising approach would be to directly compare a neuroscience image to a non-neuroscience image. Assuming that perceptual features of the stimuli are well matched across conditions, this comparison could show more conclusively that brain images have an effect because of the conceptual information they provide and not because of their perceptual properties. Future studies should also explore whether the effect of the neuroscience text is fully redundant with the effect of the neuroscience image. If so, a brain image without accompanying text should be sufficient to cause a maximum effect. In the absence of a contribution from perceptual fluency (an absence we documented in Experiment 1), we predict that an isolated brain image will be less effective than neuroscience text. On the other hand, studies on moral judgment have sometimes shown that the ...
Interview with Ronald C. Kessler, PhD, author of Severity of 12-Month DSM-IV Disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication Adolescent Supplement
New research by Associate Dean Paul Litton and MU Associate Professor of Philosophy Philip Robbins shows that offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged more negatively than mentally disordered offenders whose criminal behavior is rooted in environmental factors, such as childhood abuse. Additionally, offenders with genetic mental disorders are judged just as negatively as offenders whose mental disorder has no explanation.. Before conducting two surveys with 600 participants, Dean Litton and Professor Robbins hypothesized that offenders with a mental disorder that predisposes them to criminal behavior would be judged more negatively if the disorder was genetic rather than environmental in origin. That hypothesis was confirmed, though they were surprised that genetic explanations did not mitigate judgments of blame compared to cases with no explanation of the offenders disorder.. They also expected to find that different environmental explanations would elicit different judgments. For ...
This course involves a careful examination of the etiology (biological, psychological, and social), clinical diagnosis, and treatment of severe and persistent mental illness (i.e., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, severe character pathology, dual diagnosis) in a community mental health setting. A comprehensive, integrative, and contemporary theoretical framework through which to understand and treat severe and persistent mental illness across the lifespan will be introduced. Students will become adept at differential diagnosis, and the application of effective, evidenced-based treatments found in community mental health settings. Included will be consideration of issues related to the early onset of psychosis; the inclusion of family members in treatment; and the application of recovery and wellness principles in the treatment of severe mental illness.

Stockholm Syndrome is the psychological phenomenon whereby captives bond with their captors even to the point of sympathizing with and defending them. It is thought to have its roots in our hunter-gatherer past, where the experience of being forcibly co-opted into a new band of hunter-gatherers was a not uncommon occurrence.. Usually it is viewed as an individual psychological condition, affecting those individuals who are kidnapped or held hostage, such as the hostages in the 1973 botched robbery in Stockholm that gave the phenomenon its name, but there is no reason why it cant be extended to much larger groups if they appear to demonstrate the behavior specified by the condition.. The phenomenon is thought to be more common among women than men, for obvious reasons, but it is unclear whether it has a racial aspect, although this seems likely. To date the most famous examples - Patty Hearst, Jaycee Lee Dugard, etc. - have typically been young White women.. There is a certain rationale to ...
The word frequency effect is a psychological phenomenon where recognition times are faster for words seen more frequently than for words seen less frequently. Word frequency depends on individual awareness of the tested language. The phenomenon can be extended to different characters of the word in non-alphabetic languages such as Chinese. A word is considered to be high frequency if the word is commonly used in daily speech, such as the word the. A word is considered to be low frequency if the word is not commonly used, such as the word strait. Some languages such as Chinese have multiple levels of daily speech that impact frequency of words. There is frequency at the character level or at the word level. There is also an effect of frequency at the orthographic level. Lower frequency words benefit more from a single repetition than higher frequency words. Most studies looking at the word frequency effect use eye tracking data. When words have a higher frequency, readers fixate on them for ...

Evolutionary perspectives on human behavior are almost as old as the science of psychology itself. A new brand of functionalism has emerged; it draws inspiration from developments in evolutionary biology in the past half-century. This chapter offers an overview of evolutionary biology as applied to human psychology. An ecological niche is discussed, and the critical issue of the nature of the niche humans entered and defined is addressed. Unusually, individuals fitness was highly dependent on their ability to attract, form, and maintain cooperative coalitions with others and harness the competencies of others to their own. Several broad, evolution-inspired proposals about human social behavior are described, illustrating how evolutionary perspectives offer integrative understanding of psychological phenomena and generate new research programs. Individual differences from an evolutionary perspective are addressed. Evolutionary perspectives, rather than representing alternatives to social or cultural

First paragraph: Let me put up my hand straight away: I am a naturalist about cognition. What does this mean? First things first: I take cognition to be a catch-all term encompassing the various states and processes that we typically identify as psychological phenomena (the states and processes of memory, perception, reasoning, and so on). The guiding thought of naturalism is that philosophy should be continuous with empirical science. So the naturalist about cognition (thats me) thinks that the philosophical understanding of cognition (of the states and processes of memory, perception, reasoning, and so on) should be continuous with cognitive science. I take the naturalist notion of continuity with empirical science to be determined by the following principle of conflict resolution (Wheeler 2013): if and when there is a genuine clash between philosophy and some eminently well-supported (by the data) empirical science, then that is a good reason for the philosopher to at least revisit her ...
The researchers in the Crusius group investigate a variety of topics in social cognition. One key interest concerns how trust vs. distrust changes the way humans process information and influences social behavior. Furthermore, we explore how social comparisons, their underlying cognitive processes, and their emotional consequences affect psychological phenomena at the intraindividual, the interpersonal, and at the group level. Further important research areas include moral cognition and moral behavior, stereotyping and prejudice, the consequences of ostracism, the psychology of personal beliefs such as mind-body dualism, and empathy and perspective taking. Taken together, our research interests cover a broad array of basic and applied questions about social behavior. ...
We present a theory of human artistic experience and the neural mechanisms that mediate it. Any theory of art has to ideally have three components. The logic of art: whether there are universal rules or principles; The evolutionary rationale: why did these rules evolve and why do they have the form that they do; What is the brain circuitry involved? Our paper begins with a quest for artistic universals and proposes a list of Eight laws of artistic experience (...) -- a set of heuristics that artists either consciously or unconsciously deploy to optimally titillate the visual areas of the brain. One of these principles is a psychological phenomenon called the peak shift effect: If a rat is rewarded for discriminating a rectangle from a square, it will respond even more vigorously to a rectangle that is longer and skinnier that the prototype. We suggest that this principle explains not only caricatures, but many other aspects of art. Example: An evocative sketch of a female nude may be one which ...
I think that a well-known psychological phenomenon is impeding progress in cosmology - we humans tend to prefer beliefs that we find personally comfortable and convenient. It is far more convenient to publish results from refined and extended Dark Matter simulations that have been developed over years than to learn how to create and study solutions of a new gravitational theory. For many, the intellectual barrier is significant, possibly leading them to seek comfort in the demise of STVG. After Einsteins General Relativity appeared in 2015/2016, and Eddington confirmed in 1919 its prediction of the precession of the orbit of Mercury, Eddington was accused of being one of only three people in the world who understood GR. Eddington was puzzled, and wondered aloud who might be the third! Although GR is now familiar to many, STVG is more complex. Nevertheless, this last year has seen the appearance of about a dozen preprints from those independently studying the predictions of STVG for particular ...
Spit on the contrary appears much more simple. Two opposing screens show the artist s face. He spits and spittle hits his face and runs down slowly. The opposite position of the images evokes the impression as though he spat into his own face. Spitting in someone s face is an act of humiliation born by fury or contempt. Spitting oneself consequently appears as a form of self-contempt which, as a psychological phenomenon, largely remains invisible. Also, the splitting of the self, in this regard, gains some schizophrenic aspect. Or does the artist meets himself with a masculine display pattern as young hooligans in bigger towns like to spit on the street? A starting point for Spit was a photographic series in which Kunkel collected photos of spittle in the city. Childhood games like spitting cherry stones as far as possible or who has more spittle in his mouth (Collecting as much saliva as possible in one s mouth to imagine lemons is helpful and then making a huge blob on the ground) lie in the ...
The perception of absolute distance has been assumed to be important in the perception of the size of objects and the depth between them. A different hypothesis is proposed. It is asserted that perceived relative size and distance are the primary psychological phenomena, with perceived absolute distance derived from the perceptual summing of perceived relative depths. In agreement with this point-of-view, it is stressed that relative, rather than absolute retinal extents, are the determiners of visually perceived extents. A principle called the adjacency principle is identified as perceptually organizing the relative retinal stimuli. This principle states that the apparent size or position of any object in the field-of-view is determined by whatever size or distance cues occur between it and adjacent objects.

In psychology, Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a real paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness ...

A brief primer on the genetics of 15q11.2. This microdeletion is one of the genetic disorders that occurs due to the duplication architecture of the human genome. The genomic regions on the left and on the right of this microdeletion are almost identical (segmental duplications), which may results in a misalignment when DNA is replicated. When the replication machinery skips the part between both segmental duplications and the genomic region between is deleted, a microdeletion has occurred. Microdeletions are causes of many genetic disorders including Angelman Syndrome or DiGeorge Syndrome. Also, some microdeletions have a wide range of associated disorders such as the 15q13.3 microdeletion. These are the diseases that we compare 15q11.2 to when we think of genomic disorders. And this results in a psychological phenomenon called anchoring heuristic.. How bad is 15q11.2? Anchoring refers to the fact that our perception of a given situation is influenced by using comparisons. If microdeletions at ...
Abstract: In this contribution first results of experiments on pedestrian flow through bottlenecks are presented and then compared to simulation results obtained with the Social Force Model in the Vissim simulation framework. Concerning the experiments it is argued that the basic dependence between flow and bottleneck width is not a step function but that it is linear and modified by the effect of a psychological phenomenon. The simulation results as well show a linear dependence and the parameters can be calibrated such that the absolute values for flow and time fit to range of experimental results ...

Emotion analysis (EA) and sentiment analysis are closely related tasks differing in the psychological phenomenon they aim to catch. We address fine-grained models for EA which treat the computation of the emotional status of narrative documents as a regression rather than a classification problem, as performed by coarse-grained approaches. We introduce Ekmans Basic Emotions (BE) and Russell and Mehrabians Valence-Arousal-Dominance (VAD) model-two major schemes of emotion representation following opposing lines of psychological research, i.e., categorical and dimensional models-and discuss problems when BEs are used in a regression approach. We present the first natural language system thoroughly evaluated for fine-grained emotion analysis using the VAD scheme. Although we only employ simple BOW features, we reach correlation values up until r = .65 with human annotations. Furthermore, we show that the prevailing evaluation methodology relying solely on Pearsons correlation coefficient r is ...
Oliva Sabuco de Nantes Barrera (1562-1622) was a Spanish writer in holistic medical philosophy in the late 16th - early 17th century. She was interested in the interaction between the physical and psychological phenomena; therefore she wrote a collection of medical and psychological treatises that target human nature and explain the effects of emotions on the body and soul. She analyzed theoretical claims of ancient philosophers and wrote an early theory of what is now considered applied psychology. She was born in Alcaraz, Spain in 1562 and was baptized in the Holy Trinity church on December 2 of that same year. Her mother was Francisca de Cozar and her father was Don Miguel Sabuco y Alvarez. By 1580, at the age of 18, she was married to Don Acacio de Buedo. Although not much is known about her formal education it is evident that Oliva Sabuco was taught medicine by her father. She was well acquainted with classical and contemporary philosophy and was knowledgeable about medical theory. By age ...

Psychology has made, and continues to make, a significant contribution to the discipline area of education. Since one of the main aims of education concerns student learning -- which is an indisputably psychological phenomenon -- we argue that the emerging research agenda of embodied cognition has much to offer educational practitioners, researchers, and/or policy-makers. Although embodied cognition is still in its infancy, the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary nature of the literature provides some thought-provoking recommendations to enhance educational practice or practices, which in turn can bring about student learning more effectively. Consequently, this article will be concerned with the discussion of two issues: first, we provide a brief historical overview that foregrounds embodied cognition, and, second, we outline the educational implications of embodied cognition through the use of some examples significant to education. We conclude with an argument for the
Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon described in 1973 in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. Wikipedia. In political terms, most people might tend to associate the word occupation with a (foreign) military presence that controls a region or country. Any such occupation may not necessarily imply troops visibly patrolling the streets. It can be much subtler. Take Britain, for instance. The Guardian journalist Seumas Milne says that the USs six military bases, dozens of secretive facilities and 10,000 military personnel in Britain effectively tie the countrys foreign policy into the agenda of the US empire and its endless wars.. The vast majority of Brits do not regard this as an occupation. They might feel they are being protected by the US with which Britain has a special relationship. Such is the Stockholm syndrome.. The ...

Change Blindness is an interesting psychological phenomenon thats attracting a lot of research these days. There are a number of theories about why it occurs, and from a quick look at the literature Im inclined to think its something to do with the role of attention and something called re-entrant processing.
The image of heiress Patty Hearst, with her automatic rifle slung over her shoulder during a 1974 bank robbery, is synonymous with any mention of the Stockholm syndrome, described as the tendency for abductees to sympathize with, and even join, their abductors. Thirty years later when kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart was found to have taken no action to escape her kidnappers after nine months of opportunities, the term was flaunted by the news again. But in psychological circles, the Stockholm syndrome is not necessarily taken for granted quite so easily. Is the Stockholm syndrome a real psychological phenomenon, or is it just a media buzzword, an attention-grabbing label that can be slapped onto every abduction case where the victim could have escaped but didnt?. It was 1973 when furloughed prisoner Janne Olsson attempted to rob the Norrmalmstorg Kreditbanken in Stockholm, Sweden. A police standoff ensued, during which Olsson took four young women hostage who worked at the bank. He demanded ...
The NCS-A was carried out under a cooperative agreement sponsored by NIMH to meet a request from Congress to provide national data on the prevalence and correlates of mental disorders among U.S. youth. The NCS-A was a nationally representative, face-to-face survey of 10,123 adolescents aged 13 to 18 years in the continental United States. The survey was based on a dual-frame design that included 904 adolescent residents of the households that participated in the adult U.S. National Comorbidity Survey Replication and 9,244 adolescent students selected from a nationally representative sample of 320 schools. The survey was fielded between February 2001 and January 2004. DSM-IV mental disorders were assessed using a modified version of the fully structured World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview ...
Mental Health Disorders in Parents: The Affects on Children and Youth IntroductionIt has been reported that 21-23 percent of children have or have had atleast one parent with a mental health disorder. These statistics raise concern about the wellbeing of children with parents who possess a server mental illness and the resources not just for the parent, but the child or children affected. Children require numerous amounts of needs from their caregivers and an issue with parents who carry a severe mental health disorder is that the parents are unable to provide necessary needs due to their disorder and symptoms associated. Parents who possess a mental health disorder may unconsciously put their child at risk if proper attention isnt given to the childs development. Although these risks can be indirectly and unconsciously such as the social stigma attached to mental health disorders, mental effects on the child, genetic predisposition to mental illnesses themselves and the academic affects on ...
Psychiatric disorders are significantly associated with the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, mortality, hospital readmissionn. Oral and dental hygiene may play a role in such association. This study aimed to evaluate the controlled direct effect of psychiatric disorders on cardiovascular diseases by controlling the mediating effect of oral and dental hygiene. The data used for this study came from the baseline phase of Ravansar Non-communicable Disease (RaNCD) cohort study. RaNCD cohort study is including a representative sample of 10,065 adults (35-65 years old) living in Ravansar, a city in the west of Iran. The marginal structural model with stabilized inverse probability weights accounted for potential confounders was used to estimate the controlled direct effect of psychiatric disorders on cardiovascular diseases. Three different models using three mediators including oral and dental hygiene behaviors, oral ulcer and lesions, and decayed, missing, and filled tooth, were used.

Keywords:Animal model, bipolar disorder, depression, endophenotype, microendophenotype, psychiatric disorder, PTSD, schizophrenia.. Abstract:Psychiatric disorders are caused not only by genetic factors but also by complicated factors such as environmental ones. Moreover, environmental factors are rarely quantitated as biological and biochemical indicators, making it extremely difficult to understand the pathological conditions of psychiatric disorders as well as their underlying pathogenic mechanisms. Additionally, we have actually no other option but to perform biological studies on postmortem human brains that display features of psychiatric disorders, ...
It has been suggested that certain types of work may increase the risk of common mental disorders, but the exact nature of the relationship has been contentious. The aim of this paper is to conduct the first comprehensive systematic meta-review of the evidence linking work to the development of common mental health problems, specifically depression, anxiety and/or work-related stress and to consider how the risk factors identified may relate to each other. MEDLINE, PsychInfo, Embase, the Cochrane Collaboration and grey literature databases were systematically searched for review articles that examined work-based risk factors for common mental health problems. All included reviews were subjected to a quality appraisal. 37 review studies were identified, of which 7 were at least moderate quality. 3 broad categories of work-related factors were identified to explain how work may contribute to the development of depression and/or anxiety: imbalanced job design, occupational uncertainty and lack of ...
Patients requiring bariatric surgery often have mental health disorders according to a newly published study featuring in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The UCLA study provided a review of 68 publications between 1988 and 2015 emphasizing bariatric surgery and prevalence of mental health disorders. The two most common mental health disorders found with bariatric surgery patients are binge eating disorder and depression. However, these findings do not automatically disqualify a person from the surgical weight loss procedure. Previous studies have shown that severely obese patients seeking bariatric surgery are often diagnosed with depression as well. Nonetheless, no study has brought consistent proof that mental health disorders hinder weight loss goals in the postoperative phase.. Patients requiring bariatric surgery often have mental health disorders. While several questions remain unanswered, the newly published study revealed the prevalence of mental health disorders ...

This article represents a preliminary attempt to answer these and related questions, and thereby to comprehend on a deeper level the interactive constitutive relationship between law and social identity. Legal institutions, sociolegal research has shown, play a role in the constitution of social identities. But social identity itself is the consequence of a complex arrangement of sociological, social, and cognitive psychological phenomena. Hence, a deeper and more complete understanding of laws constitutive influence requires bridging advances in sociolegal studies to research in these related fields. To that end, Part II, just below, relates the processes of legal categorization to human cognitive categorization of the social world, suggesting that the categorization of persons that results from law should be associated with, and indeed be conceptualized as partially derivative of, social cognitive categorization. Part III then considers the essential nature of social categories, drawing an analogy
Reviews the book, The Many Faces of Shame edited by Donald L. Nathanson (see record 1987-98141-000). The consideration of shame as a psychological phenomenon has been almost nonexistent in the literature until quite recently. With few exceptions, the concept of shame is simply not in our clinical or, for that matter, academic vocabulary. This book attempts to draw attention to an area that has been grossly neglected. The majority of chapters have a psychoanalytic focus. While there is some variability in the quality of the chapters, they do provide the reader with a very interesting and quite extensive review of the concept of shame. However, the book is unsatisfying in some aspects because of omissions that limit its value. Mention has already been made of the absence of writings from a multicultural prospective.

One of the most deadly creatures in Australia is in the water, the Irukandji jellyfish. Despite it being almost unseen by the naked eye, it makes its presence known by their sting. Irukandji jellyfishs venom is 100 times as potent as that of a cobra and 1,000 times as potent as that of a tarantula. The venom induces excruciating muscle cramps in the arms and legs, severe pain in the back and kidneys, a burning sensation of the skin and face, headaches, nausea, restlessness, sweating, vomiting, an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, and psychological phenomena such as the feeling of impending doom. Yikes!. ...

PURPOSE: Epidemiological research has consistently shown an association between mental disorders and marital dissolution. However, this research mostly examined the association of divorce as a risk factor for mental illness. This study prospectively examined the associations of mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders with future marital dissolution and new marriages in a representative population sample. METHODS: The study used data from the National Comorbidity Survey panel study-a two-wave community epidemiological survey of 5001 participants interviewed in 1990-1992 and re-interviewed in 2001-2003. Mental disorders were ascertained with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview, a fully structured instrument. Associations of baseline lifetime disorders and disorders with onset after the baseline with subsequent divorce and marriage/remarriage were examined using discrete-time survival analysis models. RESULTS: Mental disorders at baseline or with onset after baseline were associated ...

A mental disorder or mental illness is a psychological or behavioral pattern generally associated with subjective distress or disability that occurs in an individual, and which is not a part of normal development or culture. Such a disorder may consist of a combination of affective, behavioural, cognitive and perceptual components. The recognition and understanding of mental health conditions have changed over time and across cultures, and there are still variations in the definition, assessment, and classification of mental disorders, although standard guideline criteria are widely accepted. A few mental disorders are diagnosed based on the harm to others, regardless of the subjects perception of distress. Over a third of people in most countries report meeting criteria for the major categories at some point in their lives. The causes are often explained in terms of a diathesis-stress model or biopsychosocial model. In biological psychiatry, mental disorders are conceptualized as disorders of ...
Mental illness tends to run in families. This is true not only within types of disorders - such as families with multiple members who tend toward alcoholism - but across types as well. People whose family members struggle with one type of mental illness have a higher risk of having any kind of mental health disorder. In particular, a person who grew up with a parent who had a mental illness is more likely to develop mental illness, according to the American Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. When both parents have a mental illness, the childs risk is even greater.. Nevertheless, having a family member with a mental health disorder does not guarantee that an individual will develop one. There are other factors that come into account. For example, a child whose parent has a mental health disorder may be less likely to develop mental illness if there are certain protective factors, such as if the child:. ...

Self-reported history of physician-diagnosed asthma and common mental disorders among civil servants at a public university in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: the Pró-Saúde study. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.7, pp.1633-1639. ISSN 0102-311X. https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2007000700014.. This study investigates the association between history of asthma and common mental disorders among employees at a public university in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Phase 1 cross-sectional data from a cohort study (the Pró-Saúde Study) were collected from 4,030 employees. Asthma was ascertained by self-reported medical diagnosis, and the occurrence of common mental disorders was based on the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12). Generalized linear models were used to calculate prevalence rates. Asthma prevalence was 11% (444), of whom 39.7% (176) presented common mental disorders. History of asthma was associated with higher ...

Our second and third hypotheses related to predictors for 12-month mental health service utilisation in patients with depressive symptoms. We hypothesised that a positive intention to seek help from a healthcare professional and severity of depression could predict subsequent 12-month mental health service use. From our findings, however, a positive intention to seek help from a mental health professional and a higher severity of depression had no effect on subsequent mental health service use. Using Ajzens theory of planned behaviour,6 an individuals behaviour may be influenced by their own personal beliefs (patients own attitudes), subjective norms (the social norms) and control beliefs (perceived practical barriers).6 ,21 In our study population, it appears that the patients intentions regarding help-seeking was an insignificant contributor to subsequent mental health service utilisation. Conversely, identification of depression by a doctor was a very strong predictor for subsequent ...
Mental disorders during Cocainum use. Narcomaniacs usually smell cocainum, it is easily soaked up in a blood through a nasal mucosa. At intravenous injection the influence of a narcotic is stronger. Cocainum causes revaluation of the opportunities, often there are crazy ideas, hallucinations as a result of which socially dangerous acts are performed.. Cocainic intoxication is characterized as similar to maniacal, with well expressed euphoria. Having taken cocainum, the person feels extraordinary self-confident, capable for everything, own thoughts seem him very deep, full of mysterious sense. Also cocainum causes sexual exaltation.. At cocainum overdosage convulsive attacks, syncopes happen.. Other mental disorders are also frequent:. - Cocainic delirium. The patient sees bright visual, auditory and tactile hallucinations which he confuses with real life.. - Cocainic oneiroid. The patient passively watches similar to stage performance pictures.. - Cocainic paranoid. The patient unexpectedly has ...
Perinatal mental disorders are associated with increased risk of psychological and developmental disturbances in children. However, these disturbances are not inevitable. In this Series paper, we summarise evidence for associations between parental disorders and offspring outcomes from fetal development to adolescence in high-income, middle-income, and low-income countries. We assess evidence for mechanisms underlying transmission of disturbance, the role of mediating variables (underlying links between parent psychopathology and offspring outcomes) and possible moderators (which change the strength of any association), and focus on factors that are potentially modifiable, including parenting quality, social (including partner) and material support, and duration of the parental disorder. We review research of interventions, which are mostly about maternal depression, and emphasise the need to both treat the parents disorder and help with associated caregiving difficulties. We conclude with policy

Licensed psychiatrists and psychologists can both diagnose mental health disorders. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in mental health. A psychologist also specializes in mental health but does not hold a medical degree. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication; psychologists cannot. Specialized education and practical experience are needed to be licensed in both professions.. Mental health professionals typically begin an evaluation by having a conversation about current symptoms. Often, mental health disorders can be diagnosed through informal conversations with a therapist. Sometimes, the therapist will administer a more structured psychological evaluation in order to better determine the correct diagnosis. These evaluations come in many forms, depending on the specific diagnosis in question. Oftentimes, the therapist will assess the clients answers to the particular tests questions to determine which diagnosis is most appropriate.. Most psychiatrists and psychologists use ...

Cochrane Common Mental Disorders works in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation. This partnership helps Cochrane to produce evidence that is relevant to people with everyday lived experience of common mental disorders. Our work with the Mental Health Foundation enables us to better understand what matters to people and to improve the ways we involve people with lived experience in what we are doing. Together we aim to put trusted evidence at the heart of health care decisions for people with common mental disorders.. In June 2019 this partnership was officially launched by hosting an afternoon of debate and discussion at the British Library. Watch a short video about this day below:. ...
Findings-Intent-2005 c 504: The legislature finds that persons with mental disorders, chemical dependency disorders, or co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are disproportionately more likely to be confined in a correctional institution, become homeless, become involved with child protective services or involved in a dependency proceeding, or lose those state and federal benefits to which they may be entitled as a result of their disorders. The legislature finds that prior state policy of addressing mental health and chemical dependency in isolation from each other has not been cost-effective and has often resulted in longer-term, more costly treatment that may be less effective over time. The legislature finds that a substantial number of persons have co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders and that identification and integrated treatment of co-occurring disorders is critical to successful outcomes and recovery. Consequently, the legislature intends, to the extent of ...
Background & Aims: In developed countries mental disorders are recognized by screening questionnaires and clinical interviews. Since there is a limited number of epidemiological studies about mental disorders in Iranian population, the present study was performed to find the prevalence and type of mental disorders among Kerman residents older than 15 years old. Method: At the first step, GHQ - 28 was completed door - side for 1527 residents selected through stratified cluster sampling. The cut off point of 6 was considered as disorder presence. At the second step, 490 ones who had obtained the cut off point participated in DSM - IV clinical interview. Results: In whole, 32.1% (34.5% female and 27.1% male) were diagnosed as psychiatrically ill. The frequency of mental disorders was 35.1% among those over 65 years, 35.3% among 45 - 64 years subjects, 100% in divorced, 45.8% in widows, 40.2% in illiterates, 36.9% in students, 34.7% in housewives and 34.8% in low socioeconomic class.

The prevalence of mental illness across the globe and in the United States has become a heavy public health burden. Studies have shown that people with mental illness are at high risk of mortality and morbidities. Understanding the magnitude of premature mortality and underlying risk factors among patients with mental disease has important implications for decreasing the burden of mental disease.. To quantify the social and economic impact of mortality caused by mental disease in a society, researchers and health policymakers need an index that is easy to understand for most people. One of the most commonly used methods measuring premature mortality is years of potential life lost (YPLL). YPLL is an estimate of the years a person would have lived if he or she had not died. Despite its nice interpretation, the estimate of YPLL is a biased estimate because censored data are not included. Another method to measure the risk of premature death is Cox proportional hazard model. But the estimated risk ...
Causes of Mental Disorders, 978-613-5-63794-6, Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The causes of mental disorders are complex, and interact and vary according to the particular disorder and individual. Genetics, early development, drugs, a loss of a family member, disease or injury, neurocognitive and psychological mechanisms, and life experiences, society and culture, can all contribute to the development or progression of different mental disorders. Family-linkage and twin studies have indicated that genetic factors often play an important role in the development of mental disorders. The reliable identification of specific genetic susceptibility to particular disorders, through linkage or association studies, has proven difficult. This has been reported to be likely due to the complexity of interactions between genes, environmental events, and early development or to the need for new research strategies.
Recently, an intriguing article was published in the The New York Times about virtual reality as a relatively new tool for use in psychological therapy. This new treatment has the potential to fundamentally change the way psychologists treat many mental health disorders and make quality mental health care more accessible. Results from a number of clinical trial studies dating as far back as the 1990s have successfully demonstrated that using virtual reality as a tool in psychological or exposure therapy can effectively treat mental health disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder and a variety of phobias among other conditions.. There are only a few psychologists currently using virtual reality technology to treat their patients-among them is Dr. Dawn Jewell in Colorado, US. Dr. Jewell uses the technology created by the start-up company Limbix. Limbix has revolutionized exposure therapy by incorporating virtual reality and a Google headset named Daydream View which works alongside a ...
Objective: Scientific knowledge about symptoms of common mental disorders in elite sports is scarce. Consequently, the objectives of the study were to (i) establish the 12-month incidence of symptoms of common mental disorders (CMD; distress, anxiety/depression, sleep disturbance, adverse alcohol use, eating disorders) among Dutch elite athletes and (ii) explore their potential association with several stressors (being injured, recent life events, career dissatisfaction).Methods: A prospective cohort study with a 12-month follow-up period was conducted. The study used validated questionnaires to assess symptoms of common mental disorders (thus not clinically diagnosed) as well as several stressors; an electronic questionnaire was set up and repeatedly distributed.Results: A total of 203 elite athletes gave their written informed consent to participate in the study, from which 143 completed the 12-month follow-up period (follow-up rate of 70%). Incidence of symptoms of CMD ranged from 6% for ...

This study evaluates the association between Internal Addiction (IA) and psychiatric co-morbidity in the literature. Meta-analyses were conducted on cross-sectional, case-control and cohort studies which examined the relationship between IA and psychiatric co-morbidity. Selected studies were extracted from major online databases. The inclusion criteria are as follows: 1) studies conducted on human subjects; 2) IA and psychiatric co-morbidity were assessed by standardised questionnaires; and 3) availability of adequate information to calculate the effect size. Random-effects models were used to calculate the aggregate prevalence and the pooled odds ratios (OR). Eight studies comprising 1641 patients suffering from IA and 11210 controls were included. Our analyses demonstrated a significant and positive association between IA and alcohol abuse (OR = 3.05, 95% CI = 2.14-4.37, z = 6.12, P | 0.001), attention deficit and hyperactivity (OR = 2.85, 95% CI = 2.15-3.77, z = 7.27, P | 0.001), depression (OR = 2
Researchers generally agree that mental disorder represents a burden to the family. The present study concerns the subjective burden of living with a person with mental disorder, more specifically the association between mental disorder in the index person and subjective well-being and symptoms of anxiety and depression in the spouse. Data were obtained from questionnaires administered to the adult population of Nord-Trøndelag County, Norway during the period 1995-1997. The present study is based on a subsample where 9,740 couples were identified. Subjective burden in spouses of persons with mental disorder was compared with subjective burden in spouses of persons without mental disorder, using analysis of variance (ANOVA). All analyses were stratified by sex. Adjusting for several covariates, spouses of persons with mental disorder scored significantly lower on subjective well-being and significantly higher on symptoms of anxiety and depression compared to spouses of index persons without mental
Recovery-oriented services are a goal for policy and practice in the Australian mental health service system. Evidence-based reform requires an instrument to measure knowledge of recovery concepts. The Recovery Knowledge Inventory (RKI) was designed for this purpose, however, its suitability and validity for student health professionals has not been evaluated. The purpose of the current article is to report the psychometric features of the RKI for measuring nursing students views on recovery. The RKI, a self-report measure, consists of four scales: (I) Roles and Responsibilities, (II) Non-Linearity of the Recovery Process, (III) Roles of Self-Definition and Peers, and (IV) Expectations Regarding Recovery. Confirmatory and exploratory factor analyses of the baseline data (n = 167) were applied to assess validity and reliability. Exploratory factor analyses generally replicated the item structure suggested by the three main scales, however more stringent analyses (confirmatory factor analysis) did ...
Mental illnesses are among the greatest challenges to understanding ourselves as human beings.. These are the words of William V. Harris, the William R. Shepherd Professor of History,and director of the Columbia Center for the Ancient Mediterranean, who is performing a groundbreaking research exploring the description of madness and other mental disorders in Classical Litterature.. Back in 2008, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation granded Prof. Harris a three-year grant of $1.5 million for distinguished lifetime achievement. The Professor decided to use the grant to promote research on the history of mental disorders in the classical world, and also on some other, not closely related, aspects of the classical world.. The examples are many. All three great tragedians, Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides, staged scenes of madness, with the most detailed being Sophocles Ajax, who slaughters sheep and cattle believing them to be Greek generals who disgraced him and he later commits suicide. From ...
This project aims to produce a preference-based measure for common mental health problems derived from the CORE-OM. The project develops methodology that can be used to derive a preference-based measure where some of the dimensions are highly correlated and are therefore not independent.. The CORE-OM is a 34-item measure monitoring clinical outcomes of people with common mental health problems. CORE-OM is characterised by high correlation across its domains. The project used Rasch analysis to reduce the number of items and response levels in order to produce a set of unidimensionally-behaving items. Rasch analysis was subsequently used to generate a credible set of health states corresponding to different levels of symptom severity using the Rasch item threshold map.. The proposed methodology resulted in the development of CORE-6D, a 2-dimensional health state description system consisting of a unidimensionally-behaving 5-item emotional component and a physical symptom item. Inspection of the ...

Pete Fleischmann. Whats it like to have mental health issues and be in a job? As someone who has experienced mental health issues, and a manager, I have thought a great deal about the issue of employment and mental health. Im one of the lucky ones. Thats because my work has been all about involving service users in the design and delivery of services and my experience of using services is seen as an asset. Also Ive been reasonably stable for a long time as I do a lot to look after my well being. However, I know that my experiences arent always the norm. At SCIE, we have a new At a glance briefing, Research Briefing and Digital Report on these issues. They say that, among the working age population, nearly one in six people will be experiencing mental health problems such depression or anxiety. There are many figures I could dazzle you with, but heres another that is high up in our briefing: Only between 10% and 20% of people with severe mental health problems are estimated to be in paid ...

Psychiatric Disorders: Eight to 15 percent of prisoners have a serious and persistent mental illness,12,18 and the proportion is even higher in maximum-security prisons.1 Many prisoners have multiple psychiatric disorders with co-morbid substance abuse.37,38 Using the NIMH Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS) III-R, Teplin et al.39 studied a randomly selected stratified sample of 1272 female arrestees in Cook County and found that 80 percent had one or more lifetime psychiatric disorders. Using similar methodology, Daniel et al.40 found that 90 percent of consecutively admitted female prisoners had an Axis I disorder and 67 percent had more than one disorder. As far as the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among suicidal inmates is concerned, studies show a wide range from 33 to 95 percent.3,22,28-30,41,42. Although mood,3,43 psychotic,29 and personality disorders dominate diagnoses30 among mentally ill prisoners, depressive disorders are more often linked to suicide than is any other ...
