Teenagers are the greatest enigma. Maturing, yet still young in so many ways, teenagers are in a unique place in life, and when each young person brings with them not only a diagnosis, but a personality, a temperament, dreams, talents, struggles, and histories, the best therapies are designed that take all of this into account, giving room for each teen to be treated individually. In her interactive work, DBT Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Working With Teens, Carol Lozier takes all she has learned about working with teenagers with borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and other emotional sensitivities and c...

Conclusion: This study provides evidence that ego-dystonicity partially affects the association between alexithymia and obsessive-compulsions. Alexithymia and ego-dystonicity have a synergistic effect on the symptoms of OCD. Alexithymia in healthy participants associates to the OC symptoms only through ego-dystonicity. Targeting ego-dystonicity dimensions in psychotherapy would help improve the symptoms of OCD.Psychopathology

Insomnia is highly comorbid with other psychological and medical disorders (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder, major depressive disorder) and typically persists after successful treatment of the other complaint. Clearly, insomnia is a significant problem that should be addressed by providers treating individuals with other psychological complaints, yet sleep pro...

We examined the effects of integrated cognitive-behavioral therapy for depression and insomnia (CBT-D + CBT-I, respectively) delivered via videoconference in rural middle-aged and older adults. Forty patients with depressive and insomnia symptoms were randomized to receive either 10 sessions of CBT-D + CBT-I or usual care (UC). Patients in the integrated CBT condition were engaged in telehealth treatment through Skype at their primary care clinic. Assessments were conducted at baseline, posttreatment, and 3-month follow-up. CBT-D + CBT-I participants had significantly greater improvements in sleep at posttreatment and 3-mo...

Conclusion: The use of nutritional interventions in psychiatry equips therapists with a promising tool for both the prevention and treatment of psychiatric disorders. Besides pharmacological therapy, psychotherapy and physical activity, nutritional interventions are an important pillar in the multifactorial, biopsychosocial treatment of psychiatric disease and could be used as a potential therapeutic target.Neuropsychobiology

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a prevalent condition affecting 16.2% of the US population at some point in life (Kessler  et al., 2003). The disorder is also responsible for a significant burden, representing the second leading cause of years lived with disability (YLDs) in the world (Ferrari et al., 2013). Current standard treatments for MDD are medications and psychotherapy (Olfson et al., 2016). However, up t o one third of the patients do not achieve remission after several adequate antidepressant trials (Rush et al., 2009).

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a very common psychiatric disorder, impacting between 7.0 and 12% of men and between 20.0 and 25.0% of women in the general population.(Kessler et al., 2003) Though numerous well-established treatments for MDD exist (e.g., antidepressants, psychotherapy, somatic interventions), approximately 30% of MDD patients remain symptomatic, even after multiple adequate medication trials.(Rush et al., 2009) Risk of hospitalization among such patients with “treatment-resistant depression” (TRD) is at least twice as high, and TRD patients incur significantly higher costs than their non-tre...

It is usually associated with iron deficiency anemia or mental abnormalities like intellectual disabilities, autism, etc. Very few case reports have reported association of eating ice cubes with compulsive behavior or depressive disorders. In this case report, we present the association of pagophagia with sadness in a patient with recurrent depressive d...
