Durability of treatment effects following internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy for depression and anxiety delivered within a routine care setting
CONCLUSIONS: This study is the first to explore the remission and relapse rates after an acute phase of iCBT treatment, within a routine, stepped-care setting. The results add to the scarce literature on the durability of the effects of iCBT treatment in routine care settings, where patients are not typically followed up after receiving a completed course of treatment.PMID:35466486 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2743 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

Childhood maltreatment and self-hatred as distinguishing characteristics of psychiatric patients with self-harm. A comparison with clinical and healthy controls
CONCLUSION: Self-hatred and CM in the form of emotional abuse may be distinguishing characteristics of female patients with DSH in psychiatric settings. The present results are compatible with the hypothesis that emotional abuse leads to DSH via self-hatred, but the cross-sectional nature of the study precludes any causal conclusions. The clinical utility of the results is discussed.PMID:35467060 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2744 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

Common measures or common metrics? A plea to harmonize measurement results
DISCUSSION: Recent initiatives have proposed to mandate a limited set of outcome measures to harmonize clinical measurement. However, the selected instruments are not without flaws and, potentially, this directive may hamper future instrument development. We recommend using common metrics as an alternative approach to harmonize test results in clinical practice, as this will facilitate the integration of measures in day-to-day practice.PMID:35421265 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2742 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)

Association of real-time assessed mood, affect and suicidal ideation in psychiatric inpatients with unipolar depression
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Apr 5. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2741. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPrevious research provided preliminary support of a potential reinforcing effect of suicidal ideation demonstrating reduced negative affect and increased positive affect after thinking about suicide. The present study therefore sought to investigate the role of mood and affect as a proximal risk factor of suicidal ideation in a high-risk sample. Seventy-four psychiatric inpatients (72% female) with unipolar depression and current and/or lifetime suicidal ideation aged 18 to 85 years (M = 37.6, SD = 14.3) took part in an ecological mom...

Which, who and when? Therapeutic processes in group cognitive behaviour therapy for anxiety disorders
Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Apr 5. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2740. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe evidence for the effect of therapeutic alliance in group cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders is unclear. Identifying whether the alliance-outcome relationship depends on (1) which components are assessed, (2) who is measuring the alliance and (3) when the alliance is measured will help to clarify the role of the client-therapist relationship in therapy. The present study explored the effects of alliance component (agreement vs. bond), rater perspective (client vs. therapist) and timing (early vs. late therapy) ...
