Neuro Endocrinol Lett. 2019 Dec 29;40(5):233-246 Authors: Kolek A, Prasko J, Vanek J, Kantor K, Holubova M, Slepecky M, Nesnidal V, Latalova K, Ociskova M, Grambal A Abstract OBJECTIVES: Little is known about the relation between severity of panic disorder, adverse events in childhood, dissociation, self-stigma and comorbid personality disorders. The aim of this study is to look for the intercorrelations between these factors. METHOD: The study explores the relation between clinical, demographic and social factors in panic disorder using cross sectional design. The inpatients with pharmacoresistant panic disorder with and without agoraphobia were included in the study. Participants were also assessed for comorbidity with other anxiety or personality disorder. The Clinical Global Impression (CGI), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), Internalized Stigma of Mental Illness (ISMI), Childhood Trauma Questionnaire-Short Form (CTQ-SF), Panic Disorder Severity Scale (PDSS) and demographic data were used as measurement tools. RESULTS: A total of 142 pharmacoresistant patients with panic disorder with or without agoraphobia were admitted for 6-week cognitive behavio...

It can even make people feel more separated and lonelier than before. They may feel their loved ones don’t understand them and that’s a stress factor for everyone. So, is there a better, modern way to manage anxiety? This would be a short and sad article if there wasn’t – so here is the good news: there sure is… Source: uniquemindcare.com Let’s see some facts Anxiety ...

Authors: Park SC, Kim YK Abstract Under the partial influences of paradigm shift form category to dimension, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM) was revised to the fifth edition (DSM-5); however, due to the lack of consistent biological makers and processes and the restricted availability of dimensional meta-structure, the revisions for the DSM-5 were based on a combination of categorical and dimensional approaches. Anxiety disorders were more clearly and consistently defined in the DSM-5 with the removal of obsessive compulsive, acute stress, and post-traumatic stress disorders. Differen...

Conclusion: Trauma is frequently associated with depression, anxiety disorders, somatoform pain disorder and PTSD in a clinical population. The clinical presentation and comorbidity of these disorders seem to vary significantly between traumatized patients with Norwegian, refugee and non-refugee immigrant backgrounds. After a major trauma, refugees may be at greater risk for both PTSD and depression than other immigrants and the native population. PMID: 31961250 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In individuals with asthma, the MINI screen appeared to be a simple and useful clinical tool to screen for untreated/sub-optimally-managed psychiatric co-morbidities that may impact management.
