Parent perspectives of what helps and hinders their child on the autism spectrum to manage their anxiety
ConclusionsGiven the wide range of barriers and enablers identified, working with children and families to identify the barriers and enablers for each child in managing their anxiety may be a useful process during therapy. Targeting interventions to align with the identified barriers and enablers may assist children on the autism spectrum to develop strategies for the management of their own anxiety across settings.

“Why do I obsess about my child's flaws?”: Assessing the role of parental self‐vulnerabilities in parent–child relationship obsessive compulsive disorder (ROCD) symptoms
ConclusionsResults supported the double self ‐vulnerability hypothesis suggesting that parents with child‐value and domain‐relevant self‐vulnerabilities might be susceptible to child‐related obsessions. More research is needed to further explore susceptibility of vulnerable parents to the development and maintenance of parent–child ROCD symptoms. (Source: Clinical Psychologist)

Reciprocal relations between symptoms of complicated grief, depression, and anxiety following job loss: A cross ‐lagged analysis
ConclusionsSymptom ‐levels of CG following job loss predict later depression and anxiety symptoms more strongly than vice versa. This implies that screening and targeting job loss‐related CG symptoms with early interventions might protect individuals from developing depression or anxiety symptoms after their dismi ssal.

Development and initial validation of the Body Dysmorphic Disorder Scale for Youth
AbstractBackgroundBody dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is characterised by excessive preoccupation with an imagined defect in one's physical appearance, and symptoms of the condition generally emerge during adolescence.

An alternative goal ‐setting technique for addictive behaviour interventions: The Chronos Approach
AbstractPsychological interventions for addictive behaviours (i.e., alcohol, smoking, gambling) typically focus on reducing the frequency of that target behaviour. Individuals generally set a “count goal” and then monitor the frequency of these behaviours via a process of counting/recording (i.e., number of alcoholic drinks, number of dollars gambled). We argue that this approach, although a key feature of interventions, presents a range of challenges, including: confusion regarding what constitutes a count; remembering to keep count; and remembering to stop at a certain count. We argue that these inherent feat...

Negative and positive affect and disordered eating: The adaptive role of intuitive eating and body image flexibility
ConclusionsThis study contributes to the understanding of the adaptative and mediational role that intuitive eating and body image flexibility play in the link between affectivity and eating ‐related difficulties. Indeed, these emotional regulation processes seem to play a protective role against disordered eating, by reducing reactivity and impulsive eating in response to negative and PA. The study findings suggest that prevention and intervention programs focused on body and eating‐ related difficulties should promote a more aware and adaptative pattern of eating and body image flexibility, which seems especially rel...
