Grave Concerns Expressed by Psychiatrists  Over Current Immigration Policies
As members of the Global Mental Health and Psychiatry Caucus of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), we would like to express our grave concerns about the ongoing policies and treatment of asylum seekers, refugees, and immigrants coming to the United States, and the adverse mental health sequelae that such policies will have on these individuals and populations.

The Forest and the Trees: Evidence-Based Medicine in the Age of Information
In 2005, John Hamilton2 wrote in the Journal on how best to practice evidence-based medicine, namely develop an answerable question from a clinical situation and then work your way down a hierarchy of evidence to identify the best available evidence to inform your clinical decision. He advised formulating each clinical question requiring the use of evidence as population, intervention, comparison, outcome, and timing (PICOT). Actually, Hamilton referred to PECOT, where “E” stands for “exposure,” but we prefer the acronym Haynes et al.3 used. For Alyssa’s query, the question would be, &ldq...

Meeting a Child's Eyes
Why won ’t you look at me…why won’t you take my eyes?—Justin Torres, We the Animals1We begin the 2019 Book Forum the way I start each academic year with child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, pointing to a paper by a trusted mentor. Though it’s been over two decades since Michael Jellinek publis hed “Professional Identity: May the Force Be With Us…Always,” much in this short essay is timeless. I think specifically of Jellinek’s idea that once we see a child, they matter to us. They “no longer can be defined as a statistic, cost, or disorder but instead (as a p...

Probing the Irritability −Suicidality Nexus
Suicide is a major public health concern.1 Although still rare in absolute numbers, suicide is the second cause of death in adolescents and seems to be on the rise.2 One of the strongest risk factors for suicide is suicidality (ie, suicide ideation and attempts) alongside depression, substance abuse and, of course, access to lethal means.3-5 Identifying modifiable early predictors of suicidality and suicide should therefore be a priority for mental health researchers. In this issue of the Journal, Orri et al. examine whether distinct childhood trajectories of irritability, one of the most common symptoms across psychiatric...

Inaugural Review Issue
Courtney and colleagues1 point out, in this issue of the Journal, that as the depth and complexity of the literature on children ’s mental health has grown, the challenges in synthesizing this literature and extracting its implications for science, practice, and policy have become more complicated. The vastness of our literature is breathtaking. Authors of the six review articles included in this issue of the Journal assess ed a total of over 2,700 articles to construct their reviews. Although the ability to search our literature remains a critical core competency, our need for review articles has never been greater....

Editors ’ Best of 2018
There is, in the content of the Journal, an embarrassment of riches, and picking a “best” seems to demand a certain qualification: is the “best” the most interesting, most surprising, most educational, most important, most provocative, most enjoyable? How to choose? We are hardly unbiased and can admit to a special affection for the ones that we and the authors worked hard est on, hammering version after version into shape. Acknowledging these biases, here are the 2018 articles that we think deserve your attention or at least a second read. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

Cringe-inducing and heartening, Bo Burnham ’s Eight Grade is an independent film depicting the last week of middle school for awkwardly charismatic introvert, Kayla. Played by actor Elsie Fisher, who was only 14 when the film was shot, Eighth Grade is irreverent and feels essential. Alongside Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, it joins the pan theon of films which honor, as opposed to glorify the potential excesses of, early teen development. Perhaps that is what my coauthor and training director, Edwin Williamson, saw in Eighth Grade when he watched the trailer, making certain that all fellows in our training progra...

Adolescent Victimization and Self-Injurious Thoughts and Behaviors: A Genetically Sensitive Cohort Study
Victimized adolescents have elevated risk of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors.

Reading Acquisition in Children: Developmental Processes and Dyslexia Specific Effects
Reduced activation to print in the left ventral, dorsal and anterior pathways has been implicated in readers with dyslexia (DR) but is also characteristic for typical beginning readers. As the majority of studies compared DR to their age-matched peers, the observed results could either represent a dyslexia phenotype or a developmental delay. We aimed to disentangle reading and dyslexia effects by employing two control groups: age and skill matched, and a longitudinal design.

Editorial: Connecting the Nodes of Altered Brain Network Organization in Eating Disorders
Two prevalent eating disorders (ED) in adolescence are anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN). AN is characterized primarily by an extensive restriction of energy intake leading to significantly low body weight. In contrast, the cardinal symptom of BN is uncontrolled eating of an abnormally large amount of food, followed by compensatory behavior to avoid weight gain (eg, self-induced vomiting or laxative abuse). Despite these differences and the fact that individuals with BN are usually of normal weight, patients with both disorders have an abnormal preoccupation with body weight and shape,1 often in the form of di...

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a heterogeneous disorder encompassing a wide array of clinical presentations, levels of impairment, etiologies, and neurobiological correlates. Despite this well-known heterogeneity, most research into the pathophysiology of ADHD has relied on comparisons between typically developing youth and those with the disorder (or perhaps further stratifying by DSM-defined ADHD subtypes). Although informative, this approach assumes a level of pathophysiologic homogeneity that belies the large and growing body of literature underscoring diverse neurobiological and neuropsychological ...

Clinical Affective Neuroscience
Affective neuroscience is a promising young field in neuroscience for understanding the basis of many types of psychopathology. It describes the scientific investigation of the neural basis of affect, emotion, and feelings. These phenomena arise from mental processes that are not always directly observable, which complicates discovering their neural basis. Nevertheless, as it has done for other inferred processes, such as memory and language, neuroscience should transform our emotion-based patient formulations and lead to novel, targeted therapeutics for emotional issues. In this Translations article, we aim to provide a b...

Intellectual Disabilities in Juvenile Justice: The Case for Screening
Recent efforts to reform and improve the juvenile justice system have overlooked one critically important issue —the widespread failure to routinely screen for intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in young offenders. Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, offenders with I/DD must receive appropriate accommodations. Yet across the countr y, adolescents and adults with I/DD must engage with the juvenile justice system without appropriate supports and often with their disabilities unknown to corrections staff, lawyers, judges, and other personnel.

Does Methylphenidate Normalize Brain Dysfunction During Fear Learning in Adolescents With Disruptive Behavior Disorders?
Conduct disorder (CD) and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), collectively termed disruptive behavior disorders (DBDs), are a major cause of impairment and suffering in those affected by these conditions and their families and communities. The prevalence of DBDs is estimated at 5-14% in school-aged children,1 and they are costly to society and linked with negative adult outcomes.2 Unfortunately, few effective psychological treatments are available, and there is a lack of evidence-based pharmacological treatments for DBDs.3 The present study by Van Lith et al.4 investigates whether acute methylphenidate administration norm...

Zooming In and Zooming Out: A Network Perspective on the Comorbidity of Depression and Anxiety
Several statistical techniques are available to shed light on the structure of psychopathology, and each is valuable in its own way. It is, however, important to realize that the results of these techniques are substantially influenced by the structure of the studied instrument. Network analyses are no exception and do not perform miracles. However, they are unique in embracing the diversity of psychopathology, as the approach is both specific, by zooming in on individual symptoms, and transdiagnostic, by zooming out on the broad spectrum of psychopathology. Therefore, I genuinely believe that it will move our field forwar...

Physical and Psychosocial Impact of a University-Based, Volunteer Student-Led Running Program for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are frequently excluded from group sports.1 This accentuates the social isolation inherent in their condition, perpetuates cycles of perceived incompetence in physical activity, and increases susceptibility to weight gain influenced by psychotropic medications.2 In a 2015 study of 376 children with ASD, 18.1% of children were overweight and 17% were obese.3 Scarcity of opportunity to participate on athletic teams can contribute to this liability and compound the social isolation inherent in the condition.4-6 Thus, programs that combine relationship building with physical conditi...

Hypothalamic Networks in Adolescents With Excess Weight: Stress-Related Connectivity and Associations With Emotional Eating
Adolescents with excess weight are particularly sensitive to stress, which may contribute to the presence of emotional eating behaviors. It is proposed that this may be due to alterations in the connectivity between hypothalamic networks and regions of the “emotional nervous system”, involved in the regulate on of energy balance and stress processing. However, this remains to be clarified in adolescents with excess weight. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
