[From Risks to Ressources in Dementia and Depression of the Elderly - Cooperative Multiprofessional Treatment of a Couple in a Psychogeriatric Outpatient Department].
Authors: Spannhorst S, Wittmiß S, Schmid-Furstoss U, Kreisel S Abstract This case report provides insight into advantages of multiprofessional cooperation in the context of psychogeriatric treatment in a psychiatric outpatient department. Psychologist and psychiatrist also work as members of inpatient treatment teams und can thus resort to their intense expertise in treatment. Thus, a stepped treatment of a dementia patient and her husband suffering recidivating depression can be provided. Interdependences of the symptoms of both diseases require a close cooperation.

[The SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic and an Attempted Suicide of a Patient with Delusional Disorder].
Authors: Weise J, Schomerus G, Speerforck S Abstract The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic triggered increasing symptoms of an undiagnosed delusional disorder at a mid-60-year-old woman resulting in an attempted suicide. Because of a pandemic with noticeable and visible social changes, it seems likely that people with previously subclinical psychotic illnesses are more often admitted to psychiatric care for the first time. Building a therapeutic relationship and integrating her into an outpatient clinic was possible despite her lack of insight into the illness and her rejection of medical treatment.

CONCLUSION: In coverage, the phenomenon of burnout seems more approachable than depression due to its work-relatedness, the figurative quality of the term, and numerous disclosures by affected celebrities. We discuss that the destigmatizing potential of the term burnout may come at the expense of people with severe depression, and people outside the working context. Additionally, lower recommendation of professional treatment for burnout may delay help-seeking. PMID: 32268419 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Psychiatrische Praxis)

Authors: Krasselt A, Stengler K, Steinberg H Abstract Throughout its history, German psychiatry has been aware of the challenge it imposes to capacitate persons with severe mental disorders to participate in the job market. In the past, it was above all work therapy that was seen as an instrument to overcome this problem. The reform efforts of the Rodewisch Propositions can serve as an example. In Germany, social law legislation favored the classic rehabilitation sector to provide labor market participation benefits. Aiming at reintegrating patients in labor was not regarded a primary task of acute psychiatry. This...

Among them, concretism stands for deficiencies in the understanding of idiomatic expressions, metaphors and proverbs. However, little is known as to whether concretism is a correlate of the acuteness or severity of schizophrenia within patients. In this pilot study data of 28 patients was collected in the process of implementing a proverb test for screening purposes as part of an enhancement to the standard assessment of the general cognitive functioning of the patients.
