Attachment Styles of Dermatological Patients in Europe: A Multi-centre Study in 13 Countries. Acta Derm Venereol. 2017 Jan 25;: Authors: Szabó C, Altmayer A, Lien L, Poot F, Gieler U, Tomas-Aragones L, Kupfer J, Jemec GB, Misery L, Linder MD, Sampogna F, Middendorp HV, Halvorsen JA, Balieva F, Szepietowski JC, Romanov D, Marron SE, Altunay IK, Finlay AY, Salek SS, Dalgard F Abstract Attachment styles of dermatological outpatients and satisfaction with their dermatologists were investigated within the framework of a multicentre study conducted in 13 European countries, organized by the European Society for Dermatology and Psychiatry. Attachment style was assessed with the Adult Attachment Scale. Patient satisfaction with the dermatologist was assessed with an 11-degree scale. A total of 3,635 adult outpatients and 1,359 controls participated in the study. Dermatological outpatients were less able to depend on others, were less comfortable with closeness and intimacy, and experienced similar rates of anxiety in relationships as did the controls. Participants who had secure attachment styles reported stressful life events during the last 6 months significantly less often than those who had insecure attachment styles. Patients with secure attachment styles tended to be more satisfied with their dermatologist than did insecure patients. These results suggest that secure attachment of dermatological outpatients may be a protective factor in the manageme...

This study evaluated the anxiolytic and antidepressant activities of the hydroethanol leaf extract of N. laevis in mice.Materials and methodsThe hole-board (HBT), elevated plus maze (EPMT), light/dark exploration (LDET), open field (OFT), social interaction (SIT) (anxiolytic activity), forced swim (FST) and tail suspension (TST) (antidepressant property) tests were employed in this investigation. Mice randomly allotted to different groups were treated orally with distilled water (10 ml/kg), diazepam (1 and 3 mg/kg), imipramine (20 mg/kg) and N. laevis (25–200 mg/kg). The mice were subjected to the various tes...

In this study, the results of clinical diagnosis of the population of 557 consecutive patients with orofacial pain based on multidisciplinary diagnostics were evaluated. 15.6% of patients have given up on the participation in the study. It has been shown that the patients who dropped out of the study were significantly older (p=0.0411) than those who agreed to participate, but there was no difference in gender ratio (p=0.185) since the proportion of female patients prevailed. In an analysis of 84.4% of patients participating in the study, the elevated anxiety values were established (mean value on STAI 1 was 39.2 and STAI ...

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related DisordersAuthor(s): Julia Keleher, Amita Jassi, Georgina KrebsAbstractExposure techniques are underutilised in the treatment of anxiety disorders in routine practice, but little is known about the use of exposure with response prevention (ERP) for OCD, particularly in youth. The current study aimed to examine the utilisation of ERP for paediatric OCD via an anonymous online survey completed by clinicians (N = 107). Specifically, we explored the association of clinician characteristics and OCD symptom subtypes with ERP...

We examined (a) moderation effects of anxiety, depression, psychological inflexibility, and interpretation of intrusions and (b) the role of psychological inflexibility and interpretation of intrusions respectively as processes of change. Participants with less dysfunctional appraisals at pretreatment performed consistently better in ERP relative to ACT + ERP. In process analyses, psychological inflexibility and interpretation of intrusions positively influenced OCD severity over time in both conditions but OCD symptom severity also positively influenced psychological inflexibility and interpretation of intrusion...

Levitt, Blair H. Smith, G. Gregory Neely, Michael Costigan, David L. BennettNeuropathic pain (NeuP) arises due to injury of the somatosensory nervous system and is both common and disabling, rendering an urgent need for non-addictive, effective new therapies. Given the high evolutionary conservation of pain, investigative approaches from Drosophila mutagenesis to human Mendelian genetics have aided our understanding of the ma...
