Editorial: Making Sense of Youth Psychotherapy Dropout From Depression Treatment

Adolescent depression is a prevalent disorder that increases risk for significant functional impairment and suicidality.1-3 Several psychotherapies are available, and it has been widely assumed that failure to complete these therapies will undermine benefit. The important study by O ’Keeffe et al. raises questions about that assumption.4

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson To me, age is more a state of mind than anything else. It’s perception that comes into play, what we think about when we consider who’s old, or what it means to be old, or even what age makes someone old. Frankly, centenarians are lauded and celebrated for good reason: They’ve lived through many experiences and deserve to be honored. Thus, since through my research and personal experience I’ve found many potential mental health benefits of living to age 100, I wanted to share them. Taking ...

AbstractBipolar disorder (BD) is a debilitating psychiatric disorder characterized by recurrent depression, manic, and hypomanic episodes. Patients with BD are also likely to experience difficulties with executive functions and emotion regulation. The literature review states that little research has been done on dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for BD, and there has not been an examination of this therapy on BD patients ’ executive functions and emotion regulation. The present study addresses this absence of research with a pilot study on 60 BD patients. Participants in the intervention group received twelve 90-mi...

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...

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world.  – E. B. White If you’re a caring person who is concerned about the current state of affairs, perhaps you feel inclined toward saving the world — or at least improving our current condition. At the same time, you might be acutely aware of how quickly time passes and want to enjoy your life, while you have the good health and resources to do so. You may want to relish the beauty of nature and our planet before it deteriorates further, as well as enjoy time with your loved ones a...

This study examined the effects of the Marriage Checkup, a brief two ‐session Assessment and Feedback relationship intervention, on depressive symptoms. Two hundred and nine married couples participated in the Marriage Checkup and were randomized into Treatment (N = 108) and Waitlist‐Control Conditions (N = 101). Compared to the control condition, intervention participants reported significant improvements in depressive symptoms (d = 0.55), with an even greater effect for those who were reporting more severe baseline depression symptoms (d = 0.67).
