Despite the consistency of the alliance outcome relationship across treatment modalities and diagnoses, little attention has been given to this potential prognostic indicator in exposure therapy for anxiety-related disorders. Given that exposure therapy ...

AbstractMetacognition refers to the set of activities which allow persons to have a sense of oneself and of others available to them within the flow of daily experience. These activities range from awareness of discrete aspects of experience to their synthesis into larger, more complex ideas. Following research documenting the existence and influence of metacognitive deficits in schizophrenia, psychotherapeutic frameworks have emerged aiming to improve metacognition in this group. Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT) is one such integrative psychotherapy framework. Therapeutic targets and principles of MERI...

After exclusion criteria were applied, 75 articles were included in the final thematic analysis. A thematic analysis or...

andra Biffi There is still little research on psychological wellbeing, life satisfaction and reported problems in preadolescents and adolescents under therapy for leukaemia, and also little research comparing them with their healthy peers.

AbstractSocial functioning can be severely impaired in non-affective psychotic disorder (NAPD). Current models of psychosis pathogenesis do not tend to focus on social dysfunction and pharmacological treatment fails to ameliorate it. In this article, we propose that mentalization theory provides a valuable contribution to the understanding and treatment of NAPD. Impaired mentalizing may contribute to both positive and negatives symptoms as well as social dysfunction observed in NAPD. Furthermore, impaired mentalizing may help explain the relation between childhood abuse, insecure attachment and psychosis. Mentalization bas...
