Physical and Psychological Health of African American Women Caregivers: Unmasking the Paradox.
Authors: Rhodes SL Abstract Existing evidence consistently shows that African American (AA) caregivers experience a health paradox; participants of AA ethnicity have commonly reported having worse physical health but better mental health related to caregiver burden when compared to other racial groups. However, inconsistencies exist in the literature regarding mental health outcomes for this population. In order to provide culturally appropriate, health-promoting interventions, it is imperative to identify accurately the impact of caregiving burden on the mental health of AAs.

Borderline Personality Disorder: A Case for the Right Treatment, at the Right Dose, at the Right Time.
Authors: Campbell K, Lakeman R Abstract There is now compelling evidence that a range of psychotherapeutic treatments are effective in the treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Such treatments are often lengthy, expensive, subject to high rates of incompletion and are rarely available to people with sub-threshold symptoms. There is broad agreement that some combination of vulnerability, invalidating environment, childhood adversity, disrupted attachment in childhood or trauma play a role in the aetiology of the syndrome of BPD. These factors also contribute to problems with the capacity to mentalise, ...

A Concept Analysis of Dependence Using Rodgers' Evolutionary Method.
Authors: Lingerfelt CN, Hutson SP Abstract The concept of dependence covers a broad range of experiences. Many health-related professions, including nursing, use the concept in the context of substance use and addiction; however, the use of the concept is often confusing and lacks distinct boundaries. Researchers and theorists in nursing require conceptual clarification and definition because it helps ensure effective theory development and operationalization of the concept as a research variable. A concept analysis using Rodgers' Evolutionary Method is presented, resulting in a revised definition of dependence, as...
