Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a major international public health issue. The disorder is common and characterized by marked loss of quality of life years, financial burden and high mortality. Effective interventions include psychotherapy, antidepressant drugs, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). However, failure to respond to antidepressant treatment occurs in up to 30% of patients with MDD [1], with 52% of these pharmacotherapy resistant patients unresponsive to ECT. Such patients are categorized as having treatment-resistant depression (TRD) [2], which is associated with more frequent hospitalization, higher suicid...

As a relatively new and still poorly recognized concept, few people come to therapy identifying as suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). As a rule, a diagnosis of C-PTSD comes only after the process of self-discovery in therapy has begun. When people suffering from C-PTSD are referred to a therapist, or decide to seek help for themselves, it is usually because they are seeking help for one of its symptoms, including dissociative episodes, problems forming relationships, and alcohol or substance abuse. One of the more common issues that leads to the discovery of C-PTSD is the presence of an eating ...

ConclusionOur preliminary findings suggest that mindfulness‐based approaches may be helpful in increasing self‐compassion and reducing shame‐proneness in mixed groups of anxious and depressed patients. Controlled studies of the effects of mindfulness‐based interventions on shame in clinical populations are warranted. Practitioner points Shame‐proneness and external shame showed different patterns of relationship with depressive and stress symptoms and with self‐compassion. Shame‐proneness decreased to a greater extent than external shame decreased following participation in an MBCT group. Mindfulness‐bas...

ConclusionsThis study provides further discussion and evidence regarding the RRS‐10 two‐factor structure, as well as a valid version of RRS‐10 to use in Brazil in order to reliably assess rumination in medical and research settings. Practitioner points This is the first study to test and confirm the RRS two‐factor structure invariance across groups. RRS‐10 two‐dimensionality was confirmed in medical and non‐medical samples of women. Brooding subscale showed significantly stronger relationships with psychopathology and experiential avoidance than Reflection. The study provides evidence that RRS can be used...

We examined target groups that have been examined in randomized trials, including women, older adults, students, minorities, patients with general medical disorders, and specific types of depression, and we examined where patients were recruited. We conducted subgroup and multivariate metaregression analyses in a sample of 256 trials (with 332 comparisons) comparing psychotherapy with an inactive control condition. Only 22% of the studies had low risk of bias (RoB), heterogeneity was high and there was a considerable risk of publication bias. A meta-regression analysis among low RoB studies showed that effect sizes found f...

Abstract We analyzed the verbal behavior of patients with mood or/and anxiety disorders during psychotherapy. Investigating the words people used, we expected differences due to cognitive and emotional foci in patients with depression vs. anxiety. Transcripts of therapy sessions from 85 outpatients treated with cognitive behavioral therapy were analyzed using the software program Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count. Multivariate group comparisons were carried out investigating the LIWC-categories first-person-singular pronouns, sad, anxiety and fillers. Differences between the three diagnostic groups were found in v...

By guest blogger Tomasz Witkowski It’s hard to imagine a crueller fate than when a child receives a diagnosis of an illness as difficult as cancer. A young human being, still not fully formed, is suddenly and irrevocably thrown into a situation that many adults are unable to cope with. Each year, around 160,000 children and youngsters worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, and this trend is growing in industrialised societies. Faced with such facts, it is particularly important to understand how children cope. What traces of the experience remain in their psyche if they manage to survive? Partial answers to these ...
