Authors: Karl A, Williams MJ, Cardy J, Kuyken W, Crane C Abstract This paper explores the relationship between dispositional self-compassion and cognitive emotion regulation capacities in individuals with a history of depression.

Study 2 (n = 68) was an experimental study examining the association between dispositional self-compassion, use of cognitive emotion regulation strategies, and changes in mood and self-devalua...

AbstractA uniquely Islamic theoretical framework for an Islamic psychology has yet to be established. To do so requires that we understand how human beings are conceptualized within the cosmology that characterizes the Islamic tradition. This paper presents a model of the soul from within an Islamic paradigm, generated through a grounded theory analysis of interviews with 18 key informants with relevant academic or religious expertise. The model elaborates aspects of a mechanism for the development of the soul that constitutes a potential foundation for an Islamic theory of human psychology and has particular relevance for...

One of my first psychotherapy patients during my fellowship in an outpatient geriatric psychiatry clinic was an 82 year-old woman who told me the following: “My doctor said I should come see you. He thinks I'm depressed. I see years of nothingness ahead. I don't want to live anymore and it seems logical I should feel that way.” A recent article in AJGP by Dr. Oliver Glass1 highlights the story of an 85-year-old woman who presented to the emergency d epartment with thoughts of wanting to die (but no intent for suicide) and a report of having not eaten for two days; she was admitted to the inpatient psychiatric u...

When we hear the word tantrum, we picture a 2-year-old lying on the floor kicking and screaming. Very rarely do we use it to describe an adult having an outburst. In reality, adults can have this kind of outburst at any moment in time. We don’t typically refer to an adult as having a tantrum. We refer to them as being angry or “just blowing off some steam.” However, when their behavior becomes cyclical, predictive, or problematic the impact of their behavior should be assessed and addressed. Tantrums typically follow an action made by another person that results in the recipient feeling angry, disappoint...

CONCLUSION: A single session of post-immediate or deferred debriefing has been found to have a miraculous effect on post-traumatic symptoms, confirmed by follow-up. When disorders are chronic and complex, however, treatment can last several months or years. In each case, although certain therapeutic principles are key, other psychotherapeutic and pharmacological treatments should be adapted to the individual's clinical situation, and the symptoms they present.
