An anxiety prevention programme is not effective over the long term in UK primary schools
This NIHR funded trial of an anxiety prevention programme in UK primary schools found it was effective after one year if led by health practitioners, but not after two years. The programme was not effective at all if led by a teacher. After two years, anxiety had reduced a similar amount for both the intervention group and controls, who received the usual curriculum, including personal, social and health education (PSHE) lessons. The nine-week programme, delivered in the classroom, is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and leads nine- and ten-year-olds through activities and tasks that, through changing the way t...

Play Therapy Is More Than Child’s Play
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” – Plato Some issues that clients bring to the counseling office can be addressed via talk therapy, while others respond more adroitly to non-verbal interactions. For those in the younger set, being able to express themselves beyond words is an essential aspect of healing. Play Therapy is best suited for those ranging in age from 3-16 years old. The Association for Play Therapy (APT) defines play therapy as “the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play...

The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy compared with maintenance antidepressant treatment in the prevention of depressive relapse/recurrence: results of a randomised controlled trial (the PREVENT study).
Individuals with a history of recurrent depression have a high risk of repeated depressive relapse/recurrence. Maintenance antidepressant medication (m-ADM) for at least 2 years is the current recommended treatment, but many individuals are interested in alternatives to m-ADM. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been shown to reduce the risk of relapse/recurrence compared with usual care but has not yet been compared with m-ADM in a definitive trial.

Brain scans used to see if Facebook is addictive
ConclusionThis study draws comparisons between "addiction" to social media and substance addiction, while making it clear there are important differences between the two. The differing consequences of spending too much time on Facebook (which might include too little time working or studying) are less extreme and immediate than the consequences of addiction to hard drugs. The study has some obvious limitations. The results are based on just 20 young people from a US university, which means they may not be applicable to people of different ages, levels of education, or backgrounds. Importantly, none of the st...

Thankfully “the war” is ending and it is increasingly recognised that it is not a binary debate between cognitive behavioural therapy and psychoanalysis.CBT is an effective intervention for some people at certain times in their lives, and proponents such as Richard Layard (Tony Blair’s “happiness tsar”) and Professor David Clark should be congratulated for ensuring its increasing availability within the NHS.

Our news predictions for 2016
CRISPR-Cas9 leads to a range of new gene editing research You probably haven't heard of CRISPR-Cas 9, but that could well change by the end of 2016. CRISPR-Cas9 is a gene editing technique that uses a combination of the Cas9 protein and a strand of RNA to make breaks in strands of DNA. Then new genetic code can be placed inside the breaks. This can allow genetic code to be rewritten. Gene editing is nothing new, but the reason CRISPR-Cas 9 has got the scientific community to sit up and take notice is that it is powerful, reliable, quick and, most importantly, cheap. CRISPR-Cas 9 "components" can be bought off the...

ConclusionPrevious research has shown that both second generation antidepressants and CBT can be helpful for people with depression. This study found that they seem to work about as well as each other.The study has many strengths, including the fact it is a systematic review, and includes information from RCTs involving more than 1,500 people. However, the studies don't give us much information about adverse effects of treatments, or who responds best to which type of treatment. This is important, because what works for one person may not work as well for another. Some doctors think people with severe depression need to be...

Chronic Depression and Codependency
Dysthymia, or chronic depression, is a common symptom of codependency; however, many codependents aren’t aware that they’re depressed. Because the symptoms are mild, most people with chronic depression wait 10 years before seeking treatment. Dysthymia doesn’t usually impair daily functioning, but it can make life feel empty and joyless. Sufferers have a diminished capacity to experience pleasure and may withdraw from stressful or challenging activities. Their emotions are dulled, though they may feel sad or melancholy or be irritable and anger easily. Unlike with major depression, they’re not incapa...

Are you a hoarder? Do you hate to throw things out, and save mementos of all sizes and shapes... forever? Like every category of emotional disorders, hoarding has its ranges.

In fact, at some point in the future, I believe hoarding will most likely have a category of its own.

Flynt via Bigstockphoto Do you have a very careful pre-sleep routine? One of the first things people do when they're not sleeping well is to introduce rules around sleep. Carefully adjusting their sleeping environment in an attempt to control all noise and light. Not eating too late, avoiding caffeine, not exercising in the evening, wearing earplugs, buying a new pillow, getting a new mattress, fitting blackout curtains. Whilst these things can help with sleep to some extent, often people try too hard and these rules become part of the problem. Sound familiar?
