Minding my brain: Fourteen neuroscience-based principles to enhance psychotherapy responsiveness
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Feb 2. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2719. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIntersections between psychotherapy and neurosciences are at its dawn. The quest to understand the neural underpinnings of psychological processes has led several generations of scientists to explore neural correlates between mind, brain, and behavior. Neuroscience methods and research has given psychology new perspectives and insights about the structure and function of complex neural pathways, that underly human functioning (cognition, emotion, motivation, and interpersonal behavior). By translating neuroscientific findings into psy...

Assessment of Preschool-age Executive Functions: A Systematic Review
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Feb 2. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2718. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTExecutive functions (EF) are higher-order cognitive processes present in the prefrontal cortex, and are fundamental in planning, executing, and monitoring goal-oriented behaviors. Evaluating EF in early stages of child development is essential for identifying any cognitive alterations in young children, given that it allows for early intervention and minimizes future complications. Additionally, it contributes to a better understanding of this construct in this age bracket, as well as its operational model. Study of EF has recently be...

The Common-Sense Model and Mental Illness Outcomes: A Meta-Analysis
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Feb 2. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2721. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPsychotherapists can improve their patients' outcomes during and after therapy by improving patients' self-management. Patients who do not effectively manage their mental illness generally have worse outcomes. Leventhal's Common-Sense Model of Self-Regulation theorizes that patients' perceptions of their illness (illness representations) guide their self-management, influencing health outcomes. The present study quantified the relations between illness representations, self-management, and outcomes for mental illnesses. We conducted a...

Mindfulness-based and mindfulness-informed interventions in bipolar disorder: a meta-analysis based on Becker's method
In conclusion, both mindfulness interventions showed robust evidence on anxiety symptoms in pretest-posttest periods compared to control groups. Few studies and lack of evidence of follow-up periods were the main limitations found.PMID:35102640 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2717 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

Suicidal behavior in First-Episode Psychosis: the relevance of age, perceived stress and depressive symptoms
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Jan 28. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2716. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe onset of First Episode Psychosis (FEP) is a period of increased risk of suicice, which is 60% higher than in other stages of the disease. This work explored suicidal behavior and its most relevant factors in a population with FEP and a Healthy Control (HC) sample. We used the Suicide Risk Scale of Plutchik (SRSP) to assess suicide behavior and Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia (CDSS), Young Mania Rating Scale (YMRS), Personal and Social Performance Scale (PSP), Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), and Positive and Negative Synd...

'I have high self-compassion': A Face-Valid Single-Item Self-Compassion Scale for Resource-Limited Research Contexts
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Jan 26. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2714. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe original 26-item Self-Compassion Scale (SCS; Neff, 2003) and 12-item Short-Form Self-Compassion Scale (SF-SCS; Raes et al., 2011) are scales commonly used in cross-sectional and longitudinal research to assess the global self-compassion construct and its six facets. We introduce the Single-Item Self-Compassion Scale (SISC; "I have high self-compassion") to measure the global self-compassion construct in time-, space-, and resource-limited contexts (e.g., daily diaries, experience sampling, and nationally representative surveys). ...

Responsiveness and other psychometric properties of the Y-BOCS Severity Scale-Second Edition (Y-BOCS-II) in a Dutch clinical sample
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Jan 26. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2715. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) is a widely used clinician-rated interview to assess the presence and severity of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The scale is revised (Y-BOCS-II) to overcome several psychometric limitations, for example by extending the scoring for better discrimination within higher severity levels. The aim of the present study was to examine the responsiveness and other psychometric properties of the Y-BOCS-II Severity Scale in a Dutch clinical sample. The Y-BOCS-II is translated into Dutch ...

Impact of COVID-19 social distancing measures on routine mental health care provision and treatment outcome for common mental disorders in the Netherlands
DISCUSSION: Videoconferencing care during the COVID-19 pandemic had similar outcomes compared to traditional in-person care. These real-world results corroborate findings of previous randomized controlled studies and meta-analyses in which videoconferencing and in-person care has been directly compared in terms of clinical effectiveness.PMID:35068003 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2713 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

Adolescent maladaptive schemas and childhood abuse and neglect: A systematic review and meta-analysis
This study aimed to review evidence on the associations between childhood emotional, physical and sexual abuse; neglect and bullying and early maladaptive schemas, as measured in adolescence. PubMed, PsycInfo and CINAHL were searched to identify peer-reviewed studies reporting original quantitative data on the association between early maladaptive schemas or schema domains (e.g., Disconnection and Rejection) and childhood emotional, physical and sexual abuse; neglect and bullying, measured in individuals aged up to 18 years. Meta-analyses were conducted to estimate the magnitude of the associations between schemas and chil...
