Neural Responses To Peer Rejection In Anxious Adolescents: Contributions From The Amygdala-Hippocampal Complex, Jennifer Y.F. Lau, Amanda E. Guyer, Erin Tone, Jessica Jenness, Jessica M. Parrish, Daniel S. Pine, Eric E. Nelson

Psychology Faculty Publications

Peer rejection powerfully predicts adolescent anxiety. While cognitive differences influence anxious responses to social feedback, little is known about neural contributions. Twelve anxious and 12 age-, gender- and IQ-matched, psychiatrically-healthy adolescents received ‘not interested’ and ‘interested’ feedback from unknown peers during a Chatroom task administered in a neuroimaging scanner. No group differences emerged in subjective ratings to peer feedback, but all participants reported more negative emotion at being rejected (than accepted) by peers to whom they had assigned high desirability ratings. Further highlighting the salience of such feedback, all adolescents, independent of anxiety levels, manifested elevated responses in the amygdala-hippocampal ...


Collaborative Problem Solving: Is Empathy The Active Ingredient?, Kevin Ashworth, Sara Tapsak, Susan Tinsley Li 2012 Pacific University

Collaborative Problem Solving: Is Empathy The Active Ingredient?, Kevin Ashworth, Sara Tapsak, Susan Tinsley Li

Student Scholarship (SPP)

Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is a cognitive-behavioral model that has gained popularity in the last decade as a promising treatment option for children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder type (ODD-type) behaviors and aggression. Collaborative Problem Solving aims to help caregivers identify a child’s skill deficits, understand the role of triggers in maladaptive behaviors, and implement a framework for communicating with a child. While multiple studies provide empirical support for the use of CPS in a variety of settings, only one experimental study has been conducted to date that compares CPS to a well-established parent-training program (Barkley’s Behavior Management Program ...


New Therapies, Old Problems, Or, A Plea For Neuromodesty, Stephen J. Morse 2012 University of Pennsylvania Law School

New Therapies, Old Problems, Or, A Plea For Neuromodesty, Stephen J. Morse

Faculty Scholarship

This article suggests that investigational deep brain stimulation (DBS) for mental disorders raises few new bioethical issues. Although the scientific basis of the procedure may be both complex and largely unknown, addressing informed consent in such situations is a familiar problem. After reviewing the legal and moral background for investigating DBS and the scientific difficulties DBS faces as a potential treatment for mental disorders, the article focuses on informed consent and makes two primary suggestions. The study of DBS may proceed, but "hyper-disclosure" of the complexities should be required for competent subjects or proper surrogates if the candidate is not ...


Hemicrania Continua Headache In A Veteran With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder And Major Depressive Disorder Without Traumatic Brain Injury, Brandon A. Kohrt, Erica Duncan 2012 George Washington University

Hemicrania Continua Headache In A Veteran With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder And Major Depressive Disorder Without Traumatic Brain Injury, Brandon A. Kohrt, Erica Duncan

Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Faculty Publications

Hemicrania continua is a headache characterized by chronic unremitting unilateral pain associated with ipsilateral autonomic findings. This type of headache responds to high-flow oxygen and indomethacin. This case report describes a male veteran with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and major depressive disorder who suffers from comorbid hemicrania continua. The psychiatric symptoms were recalcitrant to psychopharmacological intervention. However, when the patient's hemicrania continua was treated appropriately, the patient's psychiatric symptoms also abated. This case demonstrates the need to address physical comorbidities that may exacerbate psychiatric disorders, such as PTSD.


A Counselor’S Role In Diagnosing The Proposed Dsm-5 Attenuated Psychosis Syndrome: A Pathway To Early Intervention Or Iatrogenic Consequences?, Vanessa Jung Tirman, Ryan P. Melton 2012 Antioch University - Santa Barbara Branch

A Counselor’S Role In Diagnosing The Proposed Dsm-5 Attenuated Psychosis Syndrome: A Pathway To Early Intervention Or Iatrogenic Consequences?, Vanessa Jung Tirman, Ryan P. Melton

Regional Research Institute for Human Services Publications

Psychosis in general, and schizophrenia specifically, are among the most debilitating and difficult to treat disorders in mental health (Correll, Hauser, Auther, & Cornblatt, 2010). Identifying a patient with at-risk symptoms before the first episode of schizophrenia can be invaluable to the patient, clinician, and the community because the patient is treated early in the course of the disease where treatment is highly effective. After years of research it has been confirmed that at-risk symptoms for schizophrenia generally precede the first episode of psychosis, which results in the diagnosis of schizophrenia (Correll et al., 2010). At present however, the assessment and recognition of these symptoms for schizophrenia or APS remain under debate (Carpenter, 2009). Research has shown that utilizing low dose antipsychotic medication, cognitive behavioral therapy, and having a supportive family and social environment are essential resources to recovery and reduction of trauma for a patient experiencing symptoms of APS (Lencz, Smith, Auther, Correll, & Cornblatt, 2003; McGlashan, Walsh, & Woods, 2010; Olsen & Rosenbaum, 2006; Portland Identification and Early Referral Program, 2009; S.Trevino, personal communication, November 18, 2010). At this time research shows that early detection of APS symptoms can achieve secondary and tertiary prevention, such as delaying the onset of psychosis and reducing suicide, but does not prevent schizophrenia from occurring (McGlashan, et al., 2010.) There are various ways in which counselors can receive referrals to assess a patient for APS. The patient can be referred by a ...

Counseling and School Psychology Faculty Publication Series

Advances in technology and transparency have greatly accelerated the ability of clinicians to remain current with regards to being informed and informing patients about the risk/benefit ratio when considering antidepressant medication. In spite of this, the current climate of pharmaceutical industry influence on medical practice does much to hinder informed consent processes. Recent findings of previously unknown and potentially dangerous adverse effects of the second- and third-generation classes of antidepressants underscore the importance of enhancing the practice of informed consent. After considering the concept of informed consent as it has evolved over time, the authors summarize some of the ...

Activity Scheduling As A Core Component Of Effective Care Management For Late-Life Depression, Genevieve Riebe, Ming-Yu Fan, JüRgen UnüTzer, Steven D. Vannoy

Steven D Vannoy

Background: Activity scheduling is an established component of evidenced-based treatment for late-life depression in primary care. We examined participant records from the Improving Mood-Promoting Access to Collaborative Treatment (IMPACT) trial to identify activity scheduling strategies used in the context of successful depression care management (CM), associations of activity scheduling with self-reported activity engagement, and depression outcomes. Methods: This study used observational mixed methods analysis of 4335 CM session notes from 597 participants in the intervention arm of the IMPACT trial. Grounded theory was used to identify 17 distinct activity categories from CM notes. Logistic regression was used to evaluate associations ...

Latino Adolescent Adjustment: An Examination Of Cultural Values, Maria I. Iturbide 2012 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Latino Adolescent Adjustment: An Examination Of Cultural Values, Maria I. Iturbide

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research: Department of Psychology

In the U.S., 22% of children under the age of 18 are Latino and 52% of Latino children have at least one parent who is foreign-born (Fry & Passel, 2009). Latinos are likely to experience acculturative strains associated with a range of negative outcomes such as academic underachievement. A mixed method sequential explanatory design was used to examine the protective effects of cultural factors that may ameliorate the negative effects of acculturative strains on psychological and academic adjustment.

The quantitative phase of the study examined whether biculturalism and ethnic identity would reduce the negative influence of acculturation strains on adjustment ...


Anthropological Data Regarding The Adaptiveness Of Hebephilia, Raymond B. Hames, Ray Blanchard 2012 Universit of Nebraska Lincoln

Anthropological Data Regarding The Adaptiveness Of Hebephilia, Raymond B. Hames, Ray Blanchard

Anthropology Faculty Publications

Hebephilia is the sexual attraction to early pubertal children in Tanner Stages 2 and 3, generally ages 11 through 14.

The second author of this letter (R.B.), a member of the Paraphilias Subworkgroup of the Work Group on Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders for DSM-5, proposed a diagnostic entity for DSM-5 that resembles the ICD-10 model, but with a different name: Pedohebephilic Disorder. In the original proposal (Blanchard, 2010a), this disorder would have three subtypes: pedophilic, hebephilic, and pedohebephilic. In the current version of the proposal, which is still under consideration, the name has been changed to Pedophilic Disorder ...
