Fears of compassion magnify the harmful effects of threat of COVID-19 on mental health and social safeness across 21 countries
CONCLUSIONS: Fears of compassion have a universal magnifying effect on the damaging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health and social safeness. Compassion focused interventions and communications could be implemented to reduce resistances to compassion and promote mental wellbeing during and following the pandemic.PMID:33880832 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2601 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

The associations of obsessive-compulsive symptom dimensions and general severity with suicidal ideation in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder: The role of specific stress responses to COVID-19
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2021 Apr 21. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2602. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSuicidal ideation is prevalent in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); but, during COVID-19 it may be increased. The present study aimed to examine the effects of obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptom dimensions and OCD severity on suicidal ideation by considering the role of stress responses in reaction to COVID-19 in a clinical sample of patients with OCD. In a cross-sectional study, 304 patients with OCD completed measures of OC symptom dimensions, OCD severity, general mental health (depression and anxiety), and COVID-1...

Critical Considerations for the Positive Memory-Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Model
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2021 Apr 18. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2599. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPosttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) includes changes in processes such as encoding and retrieval for both traumatic and positive memories. However, most work has predominantly focused on traumatic memories. Thus, Contractor and colleagues (2018) proposed a Positive Memory-PTSD model, which highlighted potential benefits associated with and mechanisms underlying positive memory retrieval and processing among individuals with PTSD symptoms. To enhance research and clinical impacts of this model, the current review provides critical co...

How Narrative Source Impacts Convergence of Ratings From the Social Cognition and Object Relations Scale - Global Rating Method with Psychotherapy Process Measures
This study examines the construct validity of the Social Cognition and Object Relations Scale - Global Rating Method (SCORS-G; Westen, 1995; see also Stein & Mulford, 2018) by exploring the degree of convergence across different narrative sources (i.e., early memories [EM] and psychotherapy narratives [PT]) in relation to patient- and therapist-rated psychotherapy process measures. Using a university-based outpatient sample (n = 81), we found limited convergence for SCORS-G ratings across narrative type. First, paired t tests showed that the means for six of the eight SCORS-G dimensions differed significantly between t...

Live psychotherapy by video versus in-person: A meta-analysis of efficacy and its relationship to types and targets of treatment
In conclusion, substantial and significant improvement occurs from pre- to post-phases of VDP, this in turn differing negligibly from IPP treatment outcome. The VDP improvement is most pronounced when CBT is used, and when anxiety, depression, or PTSD are targeted, and it remains strong though attenuated by publication bias. Clinically, therapy is no less efficacious when delivered via videoconferencing than in-person, with efficacy most pronounced in CBT for affective disorders. Live psychotherapy by video emerges not only as a popular and convenient choice but also one that is now upheld by meta-analytic evidence.PMID:33...

Differential diagnosis of borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder: self-concept, identity and self-esteem
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2021 Apr 3. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2591. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSymptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD) and bipolar disorder (BD) often overlap. In some cases, it is difficult to conduct a differential diagnosis based only on current diagnostic criteria Therefore, it is important to find clinical factors with high discriminatory specificity that, used together with structured or semi-structured interviews, could help improve diagnostic practice. We propose that a clinical analysis of identity, self-concept and self-esteem may help distinguish the two disorders, when they are not comorbid...
