An exploration of the conditions for deploying self-management strategies: a qualitative study of experiential knowledge in depression
Living with recurrent, and/or chronic depression requires long-term management in addition to active coping on a day-to-day basis. Previous research on long-term management, and coping with depression mainly f...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the preoperative anxiety of hospitalized patients exposed to Spiritist “passe,” laying on of hand with the intention of healing (Sham) and without laying on of hand. Other variables as depression, pain, physiological parameters, muscle tension, and well-being were assessed. Patients in the Spiritist “passe” intervention group showed greater reductions in anxiet y (p

Paediatric-onset multiple sclerosis presents in childhood or adolescence with fatigue and depression common among those living with POMS.1 Fatigue and depression are often comorbid conditions that have been consistently shown to affect cognitive function, social adjustment and anxiety among younger cohorts.2 Improved health behaviours, including improved physical activity, have been suggested as potential mediators of fatigue and depression among POMS patients.
Conclusion: Whereas previous research suggests associations between reduced resources and decreased absolute frequency of compensation use, the present study found that poorer cognitive status and perceived health are both linked to increased reliance on compensation in order to preserve well-being. In line with their anticipatory nature, the use of optimization strategies was independent from health and cognitive resources in our sample. We discuss the absence of conclusive effects regarding selection in this study in light of the distinction between elective and loss-based selection.Gerontology

DISCUSSION: The results demonstrated a dissociation of depression (higher amplitudes better) and cognitive (lower amplitudes better) related outcomes. Future work is warranted to elucidate the relationship between amplitude, electric field, neuroplasticity, and clinical outcomes. PMID: 32651051 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Skewes MC, Gonzalez VM, Gameon JA, FireMoon P, Salois E, Rasmus SM, Lewis JP, Gardner SA, Ricker A, Reum M Abstract American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities experience notable health disparities associated with substance use, including disproportionate rates of accidents/injuries, diabetes, liver disease, suicide, and substance use disorders. Effective treatments for substance use are needed to improve health equity for AI/AN communities. However, an unfortunate history of unethical and stigmatizing research has engendered distrust and reluctance to participate in research among many Native co...
(University of Cambridge) Apathy offers an important early warning sign of dementia in individuals with cerebrovascular disease, but depression does not, new research led by the University of Cambridge suggests.
