How to Identify & Manage Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, A Psychologist ’ s Perspective
Conclusion OCD can take all kinds of forms, but the key principles in managing it remain the same. Start questioning the beliefs your cycle of thoughts and actions is based on, and at the same time work on breaking the cycle by extending the time between the thought and the action. When Daniel came to me the idea that, he was suffering from a simple, treatable condition like OCD was unthinkable, but after a few short weeks of treatment his symptoms had all but vanished and his mood and life were back on track. OCD shouldn’t be able to ruin your life, so follow these simple steps to put your intrusive thoughts back in...

Online Therapy Necessary To Address Growing Mental Health Burden
A “massive and growing” mental health burden across the world can only be tackled successfully with a major expansion of online psychiatric resources such as virtual clinics and web-based psychotherapies, specialists said on Tuesday. With resources tight and the global mental health system only serving around 10 percent of patients even now, specialists speaking at the European Congress on Psychiatry (ECP) said the web is the only option for significant extra treatment capacity. The World Health Organization (WHO) said last week mental disorders ― in particular depression ― are now the leading cause of ill...

Can playing Tetris help prevent PTSD?
Conclusion Involvement in a traumatic event such as a traffic accident can have long-lasting effects on mental health. Some people have months or years of distressing, intrusive flash-backs, feelings of guilt or helplessness, anxiety and depression. At present, there are no treatments that can be given straight away to prevent such long-term effects. The lack of long-term effects in the study results mean we need to be cautious about claims that playing Tetris could "prevent" PTSD. Limitations of the study – such as an untested control intervention, and the relatively small number of participants – me...

Cognitive behavioural therapy for non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease: a clinical review
Neuropsychiatric symptoms are common in Parkinson's disease (PD) and have a disproportionate impact on quality of life and carer burden. Pharmacological treatment is the main approach in dealing with these symptoms, but it is limited by variable efficacy and risk of drug interactions. Non-pharmacological approaches using the cognitive –behavioural therapy (CBT) model are viable alternatives and in this review paper we summarise the evidence of CBT for three of the most common psychiatric manifestations of PD: depression and anxiety, impulse-control disorders and insomnia. Most studies modified the usual CBT format to...

There is a pressing need to generate clear hierarchies of the benefits and harms of available treatments to implement optimal clinical practice.

Conclusion There was some evidence people doing yoga – compared with those doing no exercise – saw some improvement in back-related function at three and six months. It was not clear if those undertaking yoga, compared with other exercise or adding yoga to exercise, was any better than exercise alone. The study does, however, have some downfalls: Only 12 trials were included, the majority of which were in the US. This may mean results are less generalisable to other countries. Not all trials looked at all reported outcomes. For example, only four trials were included when comparing yoga with non-yoga exerc...
