A Multi-Level Investigation of the Association between Sensory Features in Boys and Adolescents with ASD and Their Mothers ’ Anxiety and Depression

AbstractThe association between boys ’ Sensory Features (SF) and their mothers’ anxiety and depression was investigated in two groups of boys with ASD (M age Gp 1  = 7.5 yr.;M age Gp 2  = 14.3 yr). Mothers completed the Sensory Profile (SP) on their sons, and the GAD7 and PHQ9 on themselves. Results indicated significant associations between mothers’ GAD7 scores and the boys’ SP quadrant scores (global level), between GAD7 scores and Auditory, Visual and Touch Processing Do mains (subscale level), and between boys’ specific SF-related Visual and Touch behaviours and specific symptoms of mothers’ GAD7 and PHQ9 scores (item level). Implications for clinical interventions with parents of these children are described.

Conclusion: The association of migraine and disordered eating attitudes was shown to be related to depression, anxiety, quality of life and personality traits and may also indicate a more clinically severe migraine. To the best of our knowledge, there is no literature study that deals with all these relevant data together. However, neuropsychiatry-based biological studies are required to better understand this multifaceted association.RESUMO Introdu ção: Poucos estudos exploraram a coexistência de migrânea e hábitos alimentares inadequados. Além disso, os mecanismos fisiopatoló...

CONCLUSIONS: RLBP patients are more disabled than HC, but have a tendency towards a general positive psychological state of mind. Non-continuous CLBP patients would most likely present a negative psychological mindset, become more disabled and have prolonged fatigue complaints. Finally, the continuous CLBP patients are characterized by more negative attitudes and believes on pain, enhanced disability and interference of pain in their daily lives.

Gabbe Giummarra Identifying who might develop disabling pain or poor mental health after injury is a high priority so that healthcare providers can provide targeted preventive interventions. This retrospective cohort study aimed to identify predictors of disabling pain or probable mental health conditions at 12 months post-injury. Participants were recruited 12-months after admission to a major trauma service for a compensable transport or workplace injury (n = 157). Injury, compensation claim, health services and medication information were obtained from the Victorian Orthopaedic Trauma Outcome Registry, Victoria...

This study was conducted on 92 patients suffering from chronic LBP admitted to the rehabilitation ward. The Polish version of the 36-item WHODAS 2.0, the Sf-36 Health Survey (SF-36), the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) and the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) questionnaires were applied to assess patients. The scale score reliability of the entire tool for the study population was very high. The Cronbach’s alpha test result for the entire scale was 0.92. For the overall result of the WHODAS 2.0, the Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC1,2) was 0.928, which confirmed...

Cochrane Review: Psychological and social interventions for the prevention of mental disorders in people living in low ‐ and middle‐income countries affected by humanitarian crisesMental health disorders are among the leading contributors to all years lived with disability. Prevention strategies offer new possibilities to reduce their disease burden, given that many risk factors for mental health conditions have social and/or environmental roots, such as gender-based violence, poverty, unemployment, social marginalization, and lack of education. This is especially true for people living in low- and middle-income countr...

CONCLUSION: These results identify clinical features of veterans and service members with mTBI(s) who are at highest risk for pain-related disability. These findings also demonstrate the need to consider mental health and sleep problems in their pain evaluation and treatment approach. PMID: 33007066 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: In this US real-world cohort, most patients had multidomain disease presentations, which was associated with worse disease activity, QOL, and work productivity measures. This study highlights the heterogeneity of PsA and the importance of assessing all PsA domains for optimizing disease management. PMID: 33004532 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectivesDepression is commonly associated with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), but its risk factors in these patients are largely unrecognized. Pro-inflammatory cytokines involved in the pathogenesis of PsA have been associated with depression in patients without autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study was to establish whether PsA patients with and without depressive symptoms differed for general or clinical variables and serum cytokines milieu.MethodsOne hundred and fifty consecutive patients with PsA were screened for depressive symptoms with Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS-D). Patients with and witho...
