Vulnerability to exercise addiction, socio-demographic, behavioral and psychological characteristics of runners at risk for eating disorders
Excessive exercise is frequently associated with eating disorders and may degenerate into exercise addiction. We still don't know whether runners at risk for eating disorders are at risk for exercise addiction. Our aim is to assess: 1) Risk for exercise addiction in runners at risk for eating disorders. 2) Socio-demographic, behavioral and psychological characteristics distinguishing runners at-risk from not-at-risk for eating disorders.

Subthreshold Autism Spectrum Disorder in patients with Eating disorders
Increasingly data suggest a possible overlap between psychopathological manifestations of eating disorders (EDs) and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The aim of the present study was to assess the presence of subthreshold autism spectrum symptoms, by means of a recently validated instrument, in a sample of participants with EDs, particularly comparing participants with or without binge eating behaviours.

Attachment and psychopathic traits in inpatient female and male adolescents
As high levels of psychopathic traits designate a severe group of antisocial individuals, there is an important need to find its correlates and intervention targets. In particular, there is a need to identify key dimensions of parent-child relationships that are related to psychopathic traits. The aim of the current study was to investigate relations between psychopathic traits and attachment to parents in female and male inpatient adolescents. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

The divergent impact of catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val158Met genetic polymorphisms on executive function in adolescents with discrete patterns of childhood adversity
Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val158Met functional polymorphisms play a crucial role in the development of executive function (EF), but their effect may be moderated by environmental factors such as childhood adversity. The present study aimed at testing the divergent impact of the COMT Val158Met genotype on EF in non-clinical adolescents with discrete patterns of childhood adversity.

Investigating the predictors of happiness, life satisfaction and success in schizophrenia
Previous studies have suggested that, despite marked functional impairments, remitted first episode patients with schizophrenia report levels of well-being that are comparable to healthy controls. The aim of the current study was to specifically evaluate self-reported happiness, life satisfaction and success in individuals with schizophrenia beyond their first-episode of psychosis, and to investigate the impact of symptoms and functioning on these subjective experiences.

Initial Psychometrics, Outcomes, and Correlates of the Repetitive Body Focused Behavior Scale: Examination in a Sample of Youth with Anxiety and/or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Body focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), including skin-picking, hair-pulling, and nail-biting, commonly occur in youth, even at elevated/problematic levels, and are associated with a number of other psychiatric symptoms. The present study examined the internal consistency of a brief screening tool for BFRBs as well as the prevalence, severity, and correlates of BFRBs in a sample of youth with a primary anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Posttraumatic growth among people with serious mental illness, psychosis and posttraumatic stress symptoms
Recent research has shown high rates of exposure to trauma among people with serious mental illness (SMI). In addition, studies suggest that psychosis and mental illness-related experiences can be extremely traumatic. While some individuals develop posttraumatic symptomatology related to these experiences, some appear to experience posttraumatic growth (PTG). Little is known, however, about PTG as a possible outcome among people who experienced psychosis as well as posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS). (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

The relationship between ADHD traits and sensory sensitivity in the general population
Preliminary studies in children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) report both hypo-responsiveness and hyper-responsiveness to sensory stimuli, as well as problems modulating sensory input. As it has been suggested that those with ADHD exist at the extreme end of a continuum of ADHD traits, which are also evident in the general population, we investigated the link between ADHD and sensory sensitivity in the general population. Two online questionnaires measuring ADHD traits and sensory responsivity across various sensory domains were administered to 234 participants. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

Differentiating multiple vs single lifetime suicide attempters with Bipolar Disorders: a retrospective study
The risk of suicide in Bipolar Disorder (BD) has been estimated up to 20-30 times higher compared with the general population. Previous suicide attempts (SAs) represent a well-established risk factor for further attempts and for death by suicide in patients with psychiatric disorders. However, little is known about the socio-demographic and clinical profile of BD patients with a history of multiple SAs (MSAs). The present study sought to characterize BD patients with MSAs versus single suicide attempt (SSA) within a large Italian sample. (Source: Comprehensive Psychiatry)

Emotionally laden impulsivity interacts with affect in predicting addictive use of online sexual activity in men
The interest in studying addictive use of online sexual activities (OSA) has grown sharply over the last decade. Despite the burgeoning number of studies conceptualizing the excessive use of OSA as an addictive disorder, few have tested its relations to impulsivity, which is known to constitute a hallmark of addictive behaviors. To address this missing gap in the literature, we tested the relationships between addictive OSA use, impulsivity traits, and affect among a convenience sample of men (N = 182; age, M = 29.17), building upon a theoretically driven model that distinguishes the various facets of impulsivity.

Illness perceptions and adherence in bipolar disorder: an exploratory study

Emerging research suggests that this model could be used to explore illness perceptions in mental health. The aim of this exploratory study is, firstly, to measure and describe illness perception in French patient s with a bipolar diagnosis and, secondly, to explore associations between illness perceptions and adherence in this population.

Towards a psychopathology specific to Substance Use Disorder: Should emotional responses to life events be included?
The severity of emotional responses to life events (PTSD spectrum) as part of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Substance Use Disorder (SUD) patients has often been considered from a unitary perspective. Light has also been shed on the possible definition of a specific psychopathology of SUD patients. This psychopathology has been proved to be independent of treatment choice, of being active in using substances, of lifetime psychiatric comorbidity and primary substance of abuse (heroin, alcohol, cocaine).

Avoidant Personality Disorder and Social Phobia: does mindreading make the difference?
Avoidant personality disorder (AvPD) is closely related to and partially overlaps with social phobia (SP). There is an ongoing debate as to whether AvPD and SP can be classified as separate and distinct disorders or whether these diagnoses rather reflect different degrees of severity of social anxiety. The hypothesis of this study is that in patients with AvPD and in those with AvPD and comorbid SP both interpersonal functioning and metacognitive abilities (the ability to understand mental states) are more severely impaired than they are in patients with SP only.

Mental disorder classification is foundational to both clinical and research endeavors. Recent years have seen an explosion of classification research, and significant advances have been made regarding how best to reconceptualize psychopathology in a data-driven way. These findings are frequently framed around transdiagnostic constructs – dimensional variables that cut across traditional diagnostic boundaries – and hold great potential for overcoming limitations of traditional categorical diagnoses (e.g., poor reliability and construct validity).
