CONCLUSIONS: It is uncertain whether CBT reduces HSB in male adolescents compared to other treatments. All studies had insufficient detail in what they reported to allow for full assessment of risk of bias. 'Risk of bias' judgements were predominantly rated as unclear or high. Sample sizes were very small, and the imprecision of results was significant. There is very low-certainty evidence that group-based CBT may improve victim empathy when compared to no treatment, and may improve cognitive distortions when compared to sexual education, but not treatment as usual. Further research is likely to change the estimate. More r...

This study is the first of its kind to use a novel longitudinal qualitative methodology to directly compare family/carers earlier experiences supporting ARMS individuals to 12-months later. This provides a more ecologically valid insight into how perceptions change over time and how family/carers adapt. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten family/carers at two points within a 12-month period. This study was embedded within a randomised control trial, the Individual and Family Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (IFCBT) trial. Interview transcripts were analysed using thematic analysis, with a focus on how experienc...

e M Abstract Body Dysmorphic Disorder: Diagnosis, Treatment and Challenges in the General Practice Abstract. Body dysmorphic disorder (point prevalence: 1.7-2.4 %) is characterized by excessive preoccupation with one or more subjectively perceived blemishes of the appearance, as a result of which those affected show a high burden of disease due to avoidance behavior and time-consuming rituals, and often secondary problems (including depression, suicidal tendencies). The disorder is often accompanied by pronounced shame and is therefore associated with challenges in diagnostics, which is why the indication and spec...

As the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects spread, concerns about mental health impacts continue to grow. For example, we worry for health and human services professionals whose duties involve higher risk for trauma exposure and post-traumatic stress. Reports of global increases in family violence also suggest that there will be many violence victims and witnesses in need of mental health support. Add to this the potential effects of social isolation, health-related anxiety, and that these mental health problems may persist and worsen long after society goes back to “normal.” And this is all happening as...

AbstractSuicide is one of the major public health problems in young adults. Detecting the risk factors and correlates among university students might help identify students who are under risk and who need early interventions for suicide prevention. The current study aimed to investigate the cognitive style, self-esteem, hopelessness, rumination, cognitive reactivity, and personality characteristics of Turkish university students, who previously attempted suicide and who did not. A total of 355 university students (34 previous suicide attempters) were recruited for this study, and they completed the Ten-Item Personality Inv...

AbstractThere is a growing body of research aimed at identifying predictors of suicide risk among Veterans. One predictor may be hostility, as hostility and anger are associated with greater suicidal ideation among Veterans. The interpersonal theory of suicide suggests hostility may be associated with suicide risk through perceived burdensomeness and thwarted belongingness. The aim of the current study was to investigate associations among hostility, perceived burdensomeness, thwarted belongingness, and suicide risk among a sample of Veterans enrolled in a clinical trial. Participants (N = 90) completed self-...

ConclusionsYounger participants had greater symptom improvement, particularly if they received individual treatment. Other pretreatment variables did not predict outcome. CPT appears to be robust across most pretreatment variables, such that comorbid disorders, baseline symptom severity, and suicidal ideation do not interfere with application of CPT. However, individual CPT may be a better option particularly for younger service members.
