Aggravating factors and assessment tools for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in children after hospitalization. Psychiatriki. 2019 Jul-Sep;30(3):264-270 Authors: Triantafyllou C, Matziou V Abstract Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder caused by several distressing events that are related with psychotrauma. It is very frequent in childhood and untreated traumatic stress symptoms in children and adolescents often result in debilitating consequences on development with increased risks for a variety of physical and mental disorders. Ιt has been found that PTSD symptoms are reduced as soon as therapeutic interventions have been applied. The aim of the present review was to summarize the available literature regarding aggravating factors associated with the development of PTSD in children after hospitalization and assessment tools for a quick and reliable screening of children who are at risk for developing PTSD. A review of published papers was conducted until April 10, 2019 to identify articles that discuss the aggravating factors and the assessment tools for PTSD in children after hospitalization published in English, German or Greek language. Search was performed on PubMed with the following combination of key-words: "PTSD" and "children" and "hospitalization", using the filters ''human'' and "Publication date from 30/11/2007 to 09/04/2019" and choosing "all fields'' in PubMed Advanced Sea...

Authors: Cooke A, Brett C Abstract Some theories (e.g. Jackson's Paradigm Shifting Hypothesis) and many personal accounts suggest that some psychotic crises, whilst distressing, can also be transformative, leading to growth and valued outcomes. However, little is known about the extent to which this idea informs mainstream mental health care. Clinical psychologists are influential advocates of psychosocial approaches more broadly: this study explored their use of transformative models. Twelve UK clinical psychologists were interviewed: transcripts informed a grounded theory. No participants saw psychosis as a purel...

To the Editor We read the network meta-analysis on pharmacological, psychotherapeutic, and combination treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) published by Merz et al with great interest. In this meta-analysis, the authors found that psychotherapy alone and the combination of pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments were significantly associated with better outcomes than pharmacotherapy alone at long-term follow-up assessment, while all approaches demonstrated similar results at the end of short-term treatment. We have some concerns about this network meta-analysis.

OCD and PTSD are characterized by intrusive, distressing clinical phenomenology. Whereas OCD can start after a precipitating event, PTSD is defined by experiencing severe trauma. Both disorders are ameliorated by exposure during psychotherapy, suggesting an underlying common mechanism. The current study aims to characterize demographic and phenomenological similarities and differences between OCD and PTSD in a large youth inpatient psychiatric sample group.
