The Underlying Role of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms in the Association between Intimate Partner Violence and Deliberate Self-harm among African American Women
African American women are at heightened risk for intimate partner violence (IPV) and its negative consequences, including health-compromising behaviors. Deliberate self-harm (DSH) is one clinically-relevant behavior that has been understudied among African American women generally and those with exposure to IPV in particular. To date, no studies have examined factors that may account for the relationship between IPV and DSH. Therefore, the goal of the present study was to examine the intercorrelations among IPV (physical, psychological, and sexual), PTSD, and DSH history and versatility, and the potentially mediating role...

Spanish adaptation and validation of the Brief Negative Symptoms Scale
Negative symptoms prevalent in schizophrenia are associated with poor outcome. Developing new instruments to identify new treatments was highlighted at the NIMH-MATRICS Consensus Development Conference on Negative Symptoms. The new Brief Negative Symptoms scale (BNSS) demonstrated strong psychometric properties, but there is a need for validating it in non-English languages. A multi-center study was conducted to validate the Spanish version of the BNSS (BNSS-Sp) in 20 schizophrenia patients, following the original BNSS validation methodology.

Metacognitions and emotional schemas: a new cognitive perspective for the distinction between unipolar and bipolar depression
Clinicians need to make the differential diagnosis of unipolar and bipolar depression to guide their treatment choices. Looking at the differences observed in the metacognitions, and the emotional schemas, might help with this differentiation, and might provide information about the distinct psychotherapeutical targets.

Psychometric properties of the General Self Efficacy-12 Scale in Spanish: General and clinical population samples
The General Self Efficacy Scale (GSES-12) is a short version of the Sherer's Self-Efficacy Scale, and evaluates a general dimension and three aspects of self-efficacy: initiative, persistence and effort. The aim of this study is to explore the factorial structure, reliability, and criterion validity of the Spanish adaptation of the GSES-12 in general and clinical populations. The sample was composed of 714 volunteers (332 from the clinical population). Results of the principal components analysis yielded a 3-factor structure that was later confirmed through Confirmatory Factor Analysis. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

Internalizing disorder in adopted versus non-adopted adults: A NESARC based study
The objective of the study consisted of comparing lifetime prevalence rates and odds ratios of anxiety, mood, and psychotic disorders in adopted-versus-non-adopted people in a nationally representative sample. The data were drawn from the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC). The main outcome measure was the prevalence of lifetime internalizing psychiatric disorders in adopted (n=378) versus non-adopted (n=42,503) individuals. Adoptees and non-adoptees were compared to estimate the odds of lifetime internalizing disorders using logistic regression analyses. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

Differences between patients with borderline personality disorder who do and do not have a family history of bipolar disorder
Diagnostic confusion sometimes exists between bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder (BPD). To improve the recognition of bipolar disorder researchers have identified nondiagnostic factors that point toward bipolar disorder. One such factor is the presence of a family history of bipolar disorder. In the current report from the Rhode Island Methods to Improve Diagnostic Assessment and Services (MIDAS) project, we compared the demographic, clinical, and psychosocial characteristics of patients with BPD who did and did not have a family history of bipolar disorder.

Distinctive correlations of sociotropy and autonomy with working models of the self and other
Beck's cognitive theory of depression postulates personality vulnerability factors termed sociotropy and autonomy, which are accompanied by characteristic interpersonal styles. Meanwhile, Bartholomew contends that negative working models of the self and other built through insecure attachment relationships are externalized as distinctive interpersonal styles. The present study examined the relationships of sociotropy and autonomy with the self- and other-models, and attempted to promote understanding of the two personality traits from an attachment perspective.

Persistence of aggression into adulthood in detained adolescent females
Although detained adolescent females show high rates of severe aggression, we know little about the long-term impact of this risk-behavior. Furthermore, qualitative differences in aggression between males and females argue for gender specific research. In contrast to males, females display aggressive acts more often towards themselves (inward aggression; self harm behavior) than towards others (outward aggression). Therefore, this prospective study investigated the prevalence and predictive validity of different types of aggression in detained adolescent females. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)
