Cognitive emotion regulation strategies in relation to treatment outcome in a clinical sample of adolescents with personality disorders
In conclusion, pre-treatment CERS are not predictive for treatment outcome in this sample of adolescents diagnosed with personality disorders.

'You are trying to teach us to think more slowly!': Adapting Metacognitive Training for the acute care setting-A case report
We report the case of a first patient, NK, who participated in MCT-Acute during her mandated stay on the locked acute ward due to an exacerbation of schizophrenia.
