Self-Reported Anxiety, Depression and Coping in Parents of Children with Phenylketonuria

AbstractLimited published research has evaluated mental health in parents of children with phenylketonuria (PKU) and their coping strategies. We aimed to assess anxiety, depression and coping in parents of Tunisian children treated for PKU. We conducted a cross-sectional study in the reference center for the management of inherited metabolic diseases in Tunisia. We used the Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) scale and the Brief-COPE. Dependent variables were anxiety, depression, HAD Depression (HADD) and Anxiety (HADA) scores, and coping scores. Linear regression and logistic binary regression were used for multivariate analysis. Sixty-five parents from 42 families participated. 62% and 57% of them had anxiety and depression, respectively. Parental female gender (p = 0.049), rural origin (p = 0.005) and agitation in children with PKU (p = 0.031) were associated with anxiety. Parental age under 35 years (p = 0.043), agitation in children with PKU (p = 0.012) and behavioral disengagement (p = 0.003) were associated with higher HADA scores. Parents used problem focused (5.64 ± 1.34) more often than emotion focused coping (4.55 ± 0.90). Female gender was associated with emotion-focused coping (p = 0.042) and religion (p = 0.018). Motor disability in children with PKU was associated with humor (p = 0.047) an...

Even back in 2005 when Making Peace With Autism came out, I knew that I’d made a terrible mistake with the opening sentence: “The hardest day of the year for me is Nat’s birthday, November 15.” How could I have thought such a thing, much less published it for everyone to see? What if Nat saw? Realistically, he wouldn’t because he doesn’t read books like that. But still. Imagine a child seeing that. Further on I wrote: Of course, Ned and I are happy to celebrate Nat’s birthday, going to great lengths to come up with presents that catch his quicksilver attention and baking a cake sla...

In this study it is analyzed, whether shame-proneness and self-compassion moderate the influence of bully-experience on depressive symptoms. Data of depressive adolescent in-patients (n = 37) and healthy controls (n = 19) is analyzed. It could be shown that high shame-proneness reinforces the influence of bully-experience on depressive symptoms. General self-compassion has no moderating influence. However, self-kindness is a protective factor against the negative impact of bully-experience on depressive symptoms. Results are discussed regarding their relevance for therapy and prevention.

Discussion “Literacy is traditionally meant as the ability to read and write. The modern term’s meaning has been expanded to include the ability to use language, numbers, images, computers, and other basic means to understand, communicate, gain useful knowledge, solve mathematical problems and use the dominant symbol systems of a culture.” The earliest written communication was in 3500-3000 BCE, with the earliest alphabet being from 1200-750 BCE. Although the percentage of the world’s adult literacy rate is increasing each decade by ~5%, “…from 55.7 per cent in 1950 to 86.2 per cent in...
