Paternal depression in a "stay-at-home" father - case report.

[Paternal depression in a "stay-at-home" father - case report]. Neuropsychopharmacol Hung. 2019 Sep;21(3):136-141 Authors: Hajnaczky L, Lazary J Abstract There is a growing body of data on paternal peripartum depression (perinatal depression in father; PND-F), however, it has traditionally been investigated only in women. Recently accumulating results confirmed the prominent role of the mental health of fathers in the psychosocial development of children and new trends showed up concerning the father's role in the family. In this case report we demonstrate the clinical aspect of a depressive episode of a "stay-at-home" father of two children (a 5-year old boy living with autism and a 8-year old girl). In relation to the case we want to emphasize that various situations can be stressful for a person with affective vulnerability. It is noteworthy that although childcare is a happy period for the majority, it can be a stressful life period for vulnerable persons and it can provoke a depressive episode. Acceptance and tolerance of this correlation at the level of society is still far away, however, it is indispensible for adequate and timely intervention which is essential for the stability of families and the psychosocial development of children.

Background: Opioids are commonly used after posterior spinal instrumented fusion (PSIF) for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Prescription opioids use can potentially lead to misuse, abuse, dependence, and overdose death. Prolonged opioid use has not been extensively studied in the postoperative AIS population. The purpose of this study is to identify risk factors associated with prolonged opioid use after PSIF for AIS. Methods: A large insurance database was queried for AIS patients undergoing PSIF. Patients with prolonged postoperative opioid use were defined as those receiving new prescriptions for an opioid m...

Conclusions: Studies on the prevalence rates of EDs in ADHD and ASD and vice versa are heterogeneous, but they indicate frequent association. While there is growing evidence of clinical overlaps between the three disorders, it remains difficult to determine whether overlapping characteristics (e.g., social withdrawal) are due to common comorbidities (e.g., depression) or are instead primarily associated with EDs and neurodevelopmental disorders. Furthermore, prospective studies are required to better understand how these disorders are related and whether ADHD and ASD could be either specific or nonspecific predisposing fac...

Authors: Reinhard MA, Dewald-Kaufmann J, Wüstenberg T, Musil R, Barton BB, Jobst A, Padberg F Abstract Social exclusion (ostracism) is a major psychosocial factor contributing to the development and persistence of psychiatric disorders and is also related to their social stigma. However, its specific role in different disorders is not evident, and comprehensive social psychology research on ostracism has rather focused on healthy individuals and less on psychiatric patients. Here, we systematically review experimental studies investigating psychological and physiological reactions to ostracism in different res...

Our weekly round-up of the best psychology coverage from elsewhere on the web An MIT professor gave his students Fitbits to find out how exercise affected their academic performance — but instead stumbled upon some interesting insights into sleep, Jamie Ducharme at Time reports. Students who stuck to a consistent sleep pattern throughout the week seemed to do better in class, the team found, while differences in sleep quality between men and women could explain why female students were getting higher grades. “I can’t rewind the past and make up for all of the bad experiences I have had. But I can use th...

We read with great interest the umbrella review of Dragioti et al in this issue of JAMA Psychiatry that evaluated 45 nonoverlapping meta-analyses of observational studies examining potential adverse health effects of antidepressant agents. In this review, the authors report that there is “convincing evidence” of 2 associations: (1) selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) were associated with increased risk of suicide attempt or completion in children and adolescents, and (2) SSRI or antidepressant use during pregnancy was associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). L ike the authors, we believe that...

Americans aren’t sleeping well. Roughly 80% of U.S. adults say they struggle to fall asleep at least one night a week, according to a recent Consumer Reports survey. And research has found that sleep problems are also on the rise among adolescents. While the causes of America’s sleep woes are up for debate, there’s little disagreement about America’s favorite remedy: Melatonin, by far the country’s most-used sleep aid. What is Melatonin? Melatonin is a hormone that plants and animals, including humans, produce naturally. The melatonin sold in over-the-counter pills is synthetic, but chemically...

Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) results in a decrease of dystrophin with potential implications for cognitive and psychiatric complications. To better understand these concerns, we conducted a retrospective study of the neuropsychological symptoms and respective pharmacotherapies of 74 BMD patients. Eight (10.8%) patients exhibited autistic features, 26 (35.1%) exhibited inattention/hyperactivity, 23 (31.1%) had learning difficulties, 27 (36.5%) had language delays, 9 (12.2%) had global intellectual delays, 4 (5.4%) had features of tics or Tourette's, 27 (36.5%) had emotion dysregulation, 14 (18.9%) had obsessive-compulsiv...

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive neuromuscular disorder associated with significant neuropsychological symptoms. A retrospective case series study of 700 patients with DMD was conducted to study the prevalence of cognitive difficulties, neuropsychiatric conditions, and behavioral problems. Learning difficulties were seen in 19.6% of patients; autistic features in 7.6%; inattention/hyperactive features in 31.4%; language/speech delays in 24.4%; global intellectual delays in 3.7%; chronic tics in 2.4%; emotional/behavioral dysregulation in 38.7%; obsessive and compulsive features in 25.0%; anxiety features ...
