The Protective Role of Rational Beliefs on the Relationship Between Irrational Beliefs, Emotional States of Stress, Depression and Anxiety

Abstract The current study focuses on the protective role of rational beliefs in the relationship between irrational beliefs and negative emotional states (stress, depression and anxiety) in a sample of Turkish undergraduate students (N  = 440). The findings suggest that irrational beliefs, especially the need for achievement, the need for approval, and the need for comfort, are important predictors of negative emotional states (stress, depression, and anxiety). The findings also provide additional evidence for the protective r ole of rational beliefs. Findings suggest that rational beliefs have a moderator role in the relationship between irrational beliefs and negative emotional states (stress, depression and anxiety). Contributions and the implications of this study were discussed in detail.

As working conditions are increasingly characterized by socio-emotional demands, interpersonal interactions and relationships, and mental requirements, at least in high-income, post-industrialized societies, work and mental health has evolved as a key topic of occupational health research (1, 2). In this editorial, we focus on three main themes within this topic: (i) identifying factors at work that contribute to the onset of mental health problems and clinical mental disorders; (ii) using work as a “therapeutic tool” for individuals with mental health problems; and (iii) conducting an d evaluating interventi...

ic M Abstract Multi-family therapy for Bulimia Nervosa (MFT-BN) was developed in response to the modest outcomes following both Family Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy for adolescents with BN. BN impacts individuals and their family members with high levels of carer stress. MFT-BN targets barriers to treatment including low motivation to change, hostility and criticism, negative affect alongside emotion dysregulation and common comorbidities. MFT-BN enhances treatment, providing a community of support and acquisition of emotional regulation and interpersonal skills. The study describes the clinical character...

ConclusionFew studies were found, which limits the possibility of drawing strong conclusions about cost effectiveness. There is some evidence based on decision-analytic modelling that anti-bullying interventions represent value for money. Generally, there is a lack of studies that take into account long-term costs and effects.Systematic Review Registration NumberCRD42019115882.

By guest blogger Jack Barton Technology and screens are supposedly the enemy of health. They ruin our sleep, mental health and we’re slaves to their constant need for attention. At least that’s what seems to be the consensus in the news. However, the reality is much more two-sided. In fact, a new study demonstrates that our blue light emitting devices can be a force for good — by providing a novel way to deliver mental health interventions. Problems with sleep, such as insomnia, have been shown to be associated with mental health difficulties such as depression. Although long recognised as a symptom...

DiscussionThis randomised controlled trial will provide preliminary evidence on whether this intervention, requiring relatively low levels of therapist input, is safe and clinically effective.

Once you begin to dip your toes into psychological therapies, it doesn’t take long before you begin to see TLAs all over the place. So today I’m going to post on two things: some of the TLAs, and why or how we might consider using these approaches in pain rehabilitation. The first one is CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT grew out of two movements: behaviour therapy (Skinner and the pigeons, rats and all that behaviour modification stuff), and cognitive therapy (Ellis and Beck and the “cognitive triad” – more on this later). When the two approaches to therapy are combined, we have c...

AbstractDysfunctional beliefs are the central element in cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations of obsessive –compulsive disorder (OCD). The purpose of this study was to further elucidate the etiological role of preexisting dysfunctional beliefs in the occurrence of unwanted intrusive thoughts and neutralizing behaviors after a critical event by examining their predictive value and specificity in a prosp ective study with undergraduate students. The dysfunctional belief domains importance/control of thoughts (ICT), responsibility/threat (RT), and perfectionism/certainty (PC) were assessed at baseline 8 weeks pr...

AbstractBackgroundSymptoms of anxiety and depression are common in patients with cancer, and associated with impaired quality of life (QoL). The aim was to evaluate the effect of internet-based stepped care (iCAN-DO) on symptoms of anxiety and depression and QoL in patients with cancer, compared to standard care (SC).MethodsiCAN-DO was developed in cooperation between professionals and patients with cancer. Consecutive patients (N  = 245), with self-reported symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, according to the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, were randomized to iCAN-DO or SC. iCAN-DO comprised intera...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Cancer patients may experience psychological distress, like anxiety and depressive symptoms. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been shown to alleviate this psychological distress. However, patients experience barriers in participating in face-to-face MBCT. Individual internet-based MBCT (eMBCT) could be an alternative. AIM: To compare MBCT and eMBCT to treatment as usual (TAU) for psychological distress in cancer patients. METHOD: 245 cancer patients with psychological distress were randomly allocated to MBCT (n = 77), eMBCT (n = 90) or TAU (n = 78). Patients completed baseline (T...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Obesity is a global pandemic with psychological, physical and metabolic consequences including in people with mental health conditions. Anti-obesity medications (AOMs) are available to treat obesity and can produce clinically meaningful weight loss but do not address associated psychological issues. We evaluated the usefulness and acceptability of an adjunct online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programme for improving psychological outcomes. METHOD: We conducted a real-world 26-week observational study of 120 adults attending an obesity clinic who undertook a comprehe...
