Novel biotherapies are needed in youth mental health.
PD Abstract Adverse effects and lack of efficacy in a significant number of patients limit pharmaceutical interventions in youth psychiatry. This is exemplified by the fact that no medication is currently approved for the treatment of non-OCD anxiety disorders or major depressive disorder in young people younger than 18 years of age in Australia. Here, emerging biological therapies for youth with mental health problems are discussed. There is an urgent need for more research into biological interventions with acceptable risk-benefit balances. Omega-3 fatty acids, cannabidiol and N-acetylcysteine are currently bei...

A clinical update on post-traumatic stress disorder in burn injury survivors.
CONCLUSIONS: The role of the multidisciplinary treatment, integrated and trauma-informed care is essential. While level 1 evidence for PTSD treatments theoretically applies, adaptations that consider comorbidities and treatment contexts are often essential with further research required.

Here and Now Aboriginal Assessment (HANAA): a follow-up survey of users.
CONCLUSIONS: Respondents reported a high level of utility and cultural applicability of the HANAA's assessment domains, semi-structured narrative style of administration and simple rating system. The HANAA is making a useful and practical contribution to the assessment of Aboriginal SEWB at a community level. Recommendations for future work on the HANAA include consideration of addition of a personality domain and development of a child and adolescent version.

Complex PTSD - a better description for borderline personality disorder?
CONCLUSIONS: Trauma, in its broadest definition, plays a key role in the development of both c-PTSD and BPD. Given this current lack of differentiation between these conditions, and the high stigma faced by people with BPD, it seems reasonable to consider using the diagnostic term 'complex post-traumatic stress disorder' to decrease stigma and provide a trauma-informed approach for BPD patients.

The self is an illusion: a conceptual framework for psychotherapy.
CONCLUSIONS: Our usual experience of the self is an illusion. Rather than a discrete entity, it is a network of processes that maintains apparent irreducible unity via alterations of perceptions, beliefs, intentions and memories. By providing an efficient summary of an individual and its surroundings, the self-illusion allows one to predict, experience and interact with the world efficiently. Targeting mechanisms that preserve the self-illusion could provide a focus for psychotherapy. Viewing the self as a complex network offers a valuable conceptual framework for psychotherapy.

The evolution of psychoanalytic thought: a brief view through the lens of Western art and history: Freud and beyond.
CONCLUSION: An alternative perspective in understanding the evolution of Man's nature can be drawn from a discourse between art, history and psychoanalytic thought. Using art as evidence that reflects concurrent changes in psychoanalytic thought is a stimulating way to engage trainee psychiatrists and psychiatrists in their exploration of human nature.

Characteristics of patients seen by visiting psychiatrists through Medicare in a rural community mental health service with an established telemedicine service.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine characteristics of patients receiving Medicare-funded face-to-face consultations by psychiatrists in a rural service with an established telemedicine service. METHODS: For this study, 55 case-managed patients from four rural community mental health teams in South Australia provided information through questionnaires regarding psychological symptoms, quality of life, body mass index (BMI) and gave access to their Medicare data. RESULTS: In a logistic regression, it was found that being younger was more likely associated with a Medicare psychiatric consultation ( p

The value of a registrar psychotherapy post to psychiatry training.
CONCLUSIONS: This psychotherapy registrar position is a novel role that provides an opportunity to work in an intensive and sustained way with patients and within multidisciplinary teams whilst being supported by supervision and a rich teaching milieu. It offers experience of psychotherapeutic work not usually available in public mental health services. It thus assists the development of psychotherapeutic skills that are likely to enhance the future practice of those undertaking the role.

Special population - child and adolescent psychotherapy.
CONCLUSION: The emerging neuroscience-driven paradigm of psychotherapy poses challenges for the child and adolescent psychotherapist: to embrace the new conceptual reference points as organising principles leads to an urgent need to rethink traditional diagnostic formulations and time-honoured techniques for intervention. Our child patients and their families are entitled to benefit from the translation of the new research evidence from attachment regulation theory to clinical psychotherapy. Our clinical psychotherapy should sustain the 'best-interest-of-the-child' standards for well-being while also heeding Frances Tustin...

CONCLUSIONS: The Youth Mood Clinic (YMC) provides multidisciplinary, team-based treatment for young people aged 15-25 years.
