*  Family Based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The investigators proposed a preliminary randomized control trial of Family Based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT), a family-based adaptation of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depressed Adolescents (IPT-A; Mufson et al., 2000). Forty-five preadolescent children (ages 8-12) diagnosed with a depressive disorder will be randomized to receive a 14-week course of FB-IPT or Client Centered Therapy (CCT), a supportive nondirective psychotherapy that closely approximates treatment at usual in community mental health clinics. In addition to assessing the feasibility and acceptability of randomization and each of the treatment conditions, this project will evaluate the effects of FB-IPT and CCT across multiple domains, including symptomatology and psychosocial functioning. Preadolescents will be assessed prior to treatment, during treatment (Weeks 3, 7, 11), one week post-treatment, and at 3 and 6 months post-treatment to compare changes in depressive symptoms, ...

*  Psychiatry and Psychotherapy: A Troubled Relationship
The Great Psychotherapy Debate: The Evidence for What Makes Psychotherapy Work / Bruce E. Wampold and Zac E. Imel. The medical model emphasizes the biological bases of behavior and pharmacological manipulation of these biological bases to achieve behavior change (Gabbard, 1994; Schatzberg, Cole, & DeBattista, 1997), while psychotherapy is rooted in and enhanced by a therapeutic alliance between therapist and client/patient that involves a bond between the psychologist and the client/patient, as well as agreement about the goals and tasks of the treatment (Cuijpers, van Straten, & Smit, 2006; Karver et al., 2006; Lambert, 2004; Norcross, 2011; Shirk & Karver, 2003; Wampold, 2007).. There is consistent research showing that the general or average effects of psychotherapy are widely accepted to be significant and large (Chorpita et al., 2011; Smith, Glass, & Miller, 1980; Wampold, 2001). These large effects of psychotherapy are ...

*  European Psychiatric Association Guidance on psychotherapy in chronic depression across Europe. - Oxford Neuroscience
PURPOSE: Patients with chronic depression (CD) by definition respond less well to standard forms of psychotherapy and are more likely to be high utilizers of psychiatric resources. Therefore, the aim of this guidance paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of current psychotherapy for CD. The evidence of efficacy is critically reviewed and recommendations for clinical applications and research are given. METHODS: We performed a systematic literature search to identify studies on psychotherapy in CD, evaluated the retrieved documents and developed evidence tables and recommendations through a consensus process among experts and stakeholders. RESULTS: We developed 5 recommendations which may help providers to select psychotherapeutic treatment options for this patient group. The EPA considers both psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy to be effective in CD and recommends both approaches. The best effect is achieved by ...

Background: Major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder are among the most commonly diagnosed mental illnesses in Canada; both are associated with a high societal and economic burden. Treatment for major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder consists of pharmacological and psychological interventions. Three commonly used psychological interventions are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, and supportive therapy. The objectives of this report were to assess the effectiveness and safety of these types of therapy for the treatment of adults with major depressive disorder and/or generalized anxiety disorder, to assess the cost-effectiveness of structured psychotherapy (CBT or interpersonal therapy), to calculate the budget impact of publicly funding structured psychotherapy, and to gain a greater understanding of the experiences of people with major depressive disorder and/or generalized anxiety disorder ...

*  Bodymind Healing Psychotherapy
You've heard psychotherapists called 'shrinks.' Bodymind Healing Psychotherapy takes the 'shrink-rap' off to unveil an expansive view of psychotherapy and mind-body healthcare that includes ancient sacred wisdom traditions and energetic approaches to healing. This 'era of energy,' begun by Einstein, is marked by an outer energy crisis and a search for sustainable solutions. At the same time, an equally insidious 'inner energy crisis' is taking place where stressed-out, battle-fatigued soldiers of the information age reach for pills or extra cups of coffee on a quest to restore depleted internal reserves. In this book you'll discover natural ways to harness the energy of life for bodymind healing, and how to sustain energy, replenish vitality, and cultivate inner peace. Drawing from 30 years of training in Tai Chi and Qigong with some of the most respected masters of these traditions, Dr. Mayer shows how to integrate the essence of these ...

*  "Clinician perspectives on psychodynamic psychotherapy with experienced" by Patricia A McKenna
Despite the large proportion of clients who use psychotherapy more than once in their lifetimes, little empirical, theoretical, or technical literature focuses on conducting subsequent therapy. This qualitative study used in-depth interviews of 8 experienced doctoral-level psychologists (all with over 15 years experience conducting therapy) to examine the process of conducting psychotherapy with experienced clients. Psychotherapists in the sample were all trained with a psychodynamic or psychoanalytic orientation and continued to work partially or exclusively in that tradition. Results include analysis by interviewee including presentation of specific cases, as well as thematic analysis across interviewees. Thematic analysis is divided into three sections: classifications of subsequent therapy in relation to previous therapy, practice considerations and recommendations, and therapists' subjective experience and beliefs about experienced ...

*  Relaxation, Depressive Symptoms, Quality of Life, Immunological and Virological Status in People Living With HIV: a Pilot Study...
Prevalence of depression is higher in people living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLHIV) than among seronegative people. Depressive symptoms have been observed in up to 40% of seropositive population. Presence of depressive symptoms has a negative impact on quality of life, optimal compliance of antiretroviral treatment, adoption of safe sexual behaviors, and on immune status and viral load.. Although antidepressants and psychotherapeutic interventions -particularly those with cognitive-behavioral components- have been proven effective in decreasing depressive symptoms in PLHIV, their use is limited among other causes due to misdiagnosis, patient refusal, possible interaction with antiretroviral treatments, or unavailability in the case of psychotherapy. Furthermore, identification and assessment of more accessible interventions that would decrease depressive symptoms and improve quality of life in ...

*  Efficacy of 18-Months of Antidepressive Medication Plus CBT or Dynamic or Supportive Psychotherapy for Recurrent Major...
Major Depressive Disorder affects approximately 15% of the adult population over a lifetime. Controlled studies indicate that short-term antidepressive medications or psychotherapy produce full remission in only about 46% of patients. Furthermore, about 80% of patients will continue to have subsequent recurrences after remission of the first episode, with each episode increasing the probability of future recurrences. The World Health Organization estimates that by the year 2020 depression will be the second largest cause of medical disability worldwide. As a result, there is a need to validate treatments that produce remission and prevent recurrences upon long-term follow-up. Furthermore, since several treatment types are currently widely practiced, there is a need to demonstrate both their efficacies and cost effectiveness.. We propose to conduct a pilot study to determine the feasibility and provide estimates for a randomized controlled ...

A severely ego-impaired three-and-a-half-year-old boy, with a constant, longstanding, divergent strabismus of widely variable angle, began psychotherapy. Within a few months the symptom lessened considerably and later vanished almost completely in the therapeutic environment. Careful documentation of when, where, and how the strabismus varied led to conviction about the influence of the therapeutic relationship on the symptom. From infancy the child had suffered beatings from both parents. The hypothesis is raised that the parents' aggression made it necessary for the child "to avoid seeing the threat, to avoid focusing on the threat." The author also proposes that strabismus is a derivative of the psychic fragmentation which follows the loss of or inability to construct an inner object. Other major strides in ego functioning are also shown to parallel the internalization of the therapist and the mastery of aggression. A link between the capacity for depth perception and intraspsychic ...

This meta-analysis by Dusseldorp et al reinforces previous findings that psychoeducational interventions reduce major cardiac risk factors, and that this reduction contributes to decreases in cardiac death, angina, and MI. A unique finding was that patients who had received a psychoeducational programme were 3 times more likely to quit smoking than those who had not. Two other reviews differed: Mullen et al reported no significant programme effect on smoking behaviour,1 and Ebrahim and Smith observed a 4.2% reduction in smoking prevalence rates.2 Many studies report inconsistent results for smoking cessation; success has been associated with a desire to stop, a life threatening cardiac event, advice to stop, and support.3. Dusseldorp et al also reported no significant programme effect on anxiety or depression; this finding contrasted with Linden et al's study review which showed reductions in psychological stress after psychosocial interventions.4 Specific ...

There were 8 men and 45 women in the treatment group compared with 17 men and 32 women in the control group (P , 0.05 for excess of men in the control group), but men and women showed similar trends toward symptom improvement. 30% of patients had major depression and 18% had anxiety states. After 3 months, the median severity score assigned by the gastroenterologist was improved for patients receiving psychotherapy (median, 2; range, 0 to 8) but was unchanged for control patients (median, 5; range, 0 to 8, P , 0.01). Abdominal discomfort and diarrhea improved more in the treatment group than in the control group based on the gastroenterologists' ratings (P , 0.01 and P , 0.05, respectively). Patients' biweekly ratings and daily charts showed similar improvement, but also showed more improvement for distension in the treatment group (P , 0.01).

*  Psychotherapy by Elliott Wisner on Prezi
focus. Psychotherapy or councelling? What's the difference? Councelling is seen as a system intended to 'help people improve their sense of wellbeing, alleviate their distress, resolve their crises and increase their ability to solve problems and make decisions for themselves'. This suggests it works best with people who already have a sense of wellbeing and are able to solve problems and make decisions but need a helping hand during a crisis. Psychotherapy might be more helpful for psychological problems that have built up over years than at a time of crisis or distress. Given the variety of opinion on this subject, there's bound to be someone who reads this and disagrees, and they'll probably have a view worth listening to ...
