Is Irritability a Top Problem in Youth Mental Health Care? A Multi-informant, Multi-method Investigation
We examined assessment data from a diverse sample of youths (N = 206; ages 7-15; 52% male, 48% female; 33% White, 27% Black, 25% Latinx) referred for outpatient treatment of emotional and behavioral concerns. Caregivers and youths completed nomothetic (standardized checklist) and idiographic (free response) measures at intake. Irritability was identified as a top problem (TP) in 58% of cases, commonly reported by caregivers (38%), youths (42%), or both (23%)-rates that were significantly greater than those of other TP domains (depression, anxiety, ADHD, conduct, and defiance). Further analyses identified clinical correlate...

Measuring Parental Reflective Functioning: Further Validation of the Parental Reflective Functioning Questionnaire in Portuguese Mothers of Infants and Young Children
This study examines the factor structure and psychometric properties of the Portuguese Parental Reflective Functioning Questionnaire (PRFQ). The PRFQ is a brief questionnaire of parental reflective functioning that comprises three subscales: pre-mentalizing modes of mental states, certainty about mental states, and interest and curiosity in mental states. Two independent samples were included in the study: a sample composed of 710 mothers of children aged 0 to 36 months (Study 1) and a sample composed of 120 mothers of children aged 1 to 5 years (Study 2). Each sample completed a different set of self-report questionnaires...

Paediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Comorbid Body Dysmorphic Disorder: Clinical Expression and Treatment Response
This study explored the expression, occurrence, and treatment outcomes of comorbid body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in 107 youth (7-17 years) seeking treatment for primary obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In the overall sample, appearance anxiety (AA) was positively associated with OCD-related impairment, severity, symptom frequency, comorbid symptoms, and maladaptive emotion regulation. Comorbid BDD occurred in 9.35% of youth, equally affected males and females, and was associated with older age. AA negligibly reduced following treatment. Compared to those without (a) comorbid BDD and (b) without any comorbidity, youth ...

Piloting Smartphone Digital Phenotyping to Understand Problematic Internet Use in an Adolescent and Young Adult Sample
This study pilots a 6-week DP protocol in 28 youth in mental health treatment in order to assess relationships between PIU, mood symptoms, and daily behaviors like smartphone engagement and daily travel in this high-risk population. Our results found shared associations between depression and PIU, where symptom severity of both worsened in the setting of decreased smartphone engagement. These clinically relevant findings indicate that, rather than uniformly worsening mental health, increased digital engagement may actually provide short-term relief from negative affect in youth with psychiatric comorbidities.PMID:35044580 ...

We examined this question using data from 197 Swedish and Spanish youth with OCD. All youth completed the OCI-CV and clinically significant symptom severity within each major OCD dimension was established with a validated interview-based measure. Results showed that a score ≥ 3 on the OCI-CV washing scale excellently captured those with clinically significant contamination/cleaning symptoms (AUC = 0.85 [0.80-0.90], 79% accuracy). A score ≥ 4 on the obsessing scale adequately captured those with disturbing thoughts/checking symptoms (AUC = 0.71 [0.64-0.78], 67% accuracy) and a score ≥ 3 on the ordering scale adequa...

The Use of Rumination and Reappraisal in Adolescents Daily Life: Links to Affect and Emotion Regulation Style
This study explored the association between temperament-i.e., positive affect (PA) and negative affect (NA)-and emotion regulation (ER), and what momentary factors influence the selection of rumination or reappraisal during adolescents' daily life. The type of social situation in which negative events occurred, the self-rated degrees of discomfort, the types of predominant emotions experienced, and the use of reappraisal and rumination were assessed at 24 different times with an ecological momentary assessment approach given to 71 adolescents. PA, NA, and ER style were evaluated using self-reports. Bivariate Pearson correl...
