CONCLUSIONS: CCBT with a modest amount of support from a clinician or other helping person was found to be efficacious with relatively large mean effect sizes on measures of depressive symptoms. Self-guided CCBT for depression was considerably less effective. Future research should focus on enhancing the implementation of CCBT, including evaluating the amount and type of support needed for effective delivery, methods to improve engagement with computer-assisted therapies, and ways to improve treatment outcome in primary care settings.

To study the factors associated with poorer health-related quality of life at 1-year post-allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT), a secondary analysis of a prospective feasibility study was performed. Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory questionnaires were collected in 76 children undergoing alloHCT at baseline (within 30 d before transplantation), day 100, 6 months, and 12 months posttransplantation. The global score improved post-HCT (baseline: 67.1, 12 mo: 76.6). Females (odds ratio, 6.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.002-42.17; P=0.04) and patients with low baseline scores (odds ratio, 7.2; ...

By Emma Young Smartphone addiction (SA) is a controversial concept that is not recognised by psychiatry as a formal diagnosis. Critics say that a problematic relationship with one’s phone is usually a symptom of deeper underlying issues and that it is inappropriate to apply the language of addiction to technology. Nonetheless, other mental health experts believe SA is real and they’ve accumulated evidence suggesting it is associated with reductions in academic and work performance, sleep disorders, symptoms of depression and loneliness, declines in wellbeing – and an increased risk of road traffic ac...

How should we choose treatment for children and adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder? Current AACAP guidelines recommend cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) alone for those with milder symptoms, with consideration of serotonin reuptake inhibitors added to CBT for children with scores higher than 23 on the Children's Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (CYBOCS).1 The Pediatric OCD Treatment Study (POTS) 2 found that "The rate of clinical remission for combined treatment was 53.6%,... for CBT alone, 39.3%,...
