Conclusion Currently available pharmacotherapies for PTSD are poorly effective on a substantial proportion of patients. Given this high rate of pharmacological unresponsiveness, further studies are needed to extend the knowledge of the basic mechanisms associated with the pathophysiology of this disorder. The findings discussed in this review suggest that DAergic dysfunction, especially genetic-dependent DAergic alteration, plays a prominent role in the pathophysiology of PTSD; as a consequence, drugs targeting the DAergic system might be therapeutically relevant. A better understanding of how and which DAergic dysfunctio...

Discussion of the treatment potential, or usefulness of empathy inductions for therapeutic change, is presented. • Remaining empirical questions are presented. The “Standard” Empathy Definition vs. A Non-canonical Approach to Empathy Most often, the term empathy is used to refer to the vicarious sharing of another's pain or sorrow (1). This form of empathy has been described as empathic concern (2–4) because the empathizer “shares in” the negative emotional experience of the target. However, the main argument made here is that positive-valence forms of empathy exist and should ...

The objective of this study was to assess the patterns and predictors of depression treatment among older adults with dPD in the US. We adopted a cross-sectional study design by pooling multiple-year data (2005-2011) from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and the outpatient department of the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS). The final study sample consisted of visits by older adults with dPD. Depression treatment was defined as antidepressant use with or without psychotherapy. To identify predictors of depression treatment, multivariate logistic regression analysis was conducted a...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe review recent advances in psychotherapies for depressed older adults, in particular those developed for special populations characterized by chronic medical illness, acute medical illness, cognitive impairment, and suicide risk factors. We review adaptations for psychotherapy to overcome barriers to its accessibility in non-specialty settings such as primary care, homebound or hard-to-reach older adults, and social service settings.Recent FindingsRecent evidence supports the effectiveness of psychotherapies that target late-life depression in the context of specific comorbid conditions including...

ConclusionThis study is the first to provide data on the psychological status of PDC in our country. It is important that PDC's psychological problems are reduced by psychotherapy or, if necessary, by treatment. This situation has a direct negative effect on the patient's daily life activities. The data in this study show that, in particular, female Parkinson's Disease Caregivers in our country are at higher risk in terms of anxiety and depression.

Americans spend billions of dollars each year  on antidepressants, but the National Institutes of Health estimates that those medications work for only 60 percent to 70 percent of people who take them. In addition, the number of people with depression has increased 18 percent since 2005, according to the World Health Organization, which this year launched a global campaign encouraging people to seek treatment. The  Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA is one of a handful of hospitals and clinics nationwide that offer a treatment that works in a fundamentally different way tha...
