Editorial: Antidepressants to the Rescue in Severe Mood Dysregulation (SMD) and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD)?

Explosive, raging, children populate emergency rooms, inpatient units, residential programs, juvenile facilities and special education classrooms. When less serious, they are excluded from social and other activities because they are unpleasant and disruptive. Often, they feel badly and even suicidal because of their behavior and the trouble it causes.

Authors: Pierre JM Abstract The gold standard for the detection of malingered psychosis involves expert clinical assessment augmented by standardized psychometric testing. The evaluation of malingered auditory verbal hallucinations is complicated, however, by increasing evidence that voice-hearing is a broadly heterogeneous experience that does not always reflect psychopathology, with atypical features nearly as common as typical characteristics. The detection of malingered auditory verbal hallucinations in clinical settings may be particularly vulnerable to false positives and false negatives due to low suspicion ...

This study used data from community-dwelling older adults aged ≥65 with a current diagnosis of major depression. Eligible participants completed measures of depression symptom severity (Hamilton Depression Rating Scale-17 item), current suicidal ideation (Geriatric Suicide Ideation Scale), and perceived stress (Perceived Stress Scale). Results: Participants were 225 older adults with a mean age of 71.4 (SD = 5.6). Sixty-five percent of the sample was female. Fifteen percent of the variance in suicidal ideation was accounted for by lower education (p = .03), male sex (p = .03) and higher current perceived stress (p
