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.

Authors: Haid-Stecher N, Sevecke K Abstract Childhood Maltreatment and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury - the Impact of Emotion Regulation Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a common phenomenon in adolescence. Furthermore, it is often associated with maltreatment during childhood. One factor determining the relation between childhood maltreatment and NSSI is maladaptive emotion regulation strategies. The current study examines this relation in adolescent psychiatric inpatients (n = 97). Adolescents engaging in NSSI present maladaptive strategies in emotion regulation more frequently. In addition, they experienced maltreatm...

Recent researches have indicated that S100A4 participates in tissue fibrosis, whereas calcimycin inhibits this process as a novel S100A4 transcription inhibitor. However, the relationship and mechanisms between calcimycin and S100A4 in keloid fibroblasts (KFs) remain unknown. The present research was aimed to evaluate the effect of calcimycin on S100A4 expression and pathogenesis in KFs. Keloid fibroblasts were cultured and exposed to different concentrations of calcimycin in the absence or presence of transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1). The results showed that the expression of S100A4 was significantly incre...
