The social brain and heart rate variability: Implications for psychotherapy
ConclusionsOur knowledge of the social brain and its physiological underpinnings might influence important elements of a therapeutic intervention, from the initial assessment of patient's difficulties to the evaluation of therapy outcomes.Practitioner points Social relationships have emotional and self ‐regulating properties. The experience of inter‐ and intrapersonal safeness is connected to prosocial motives, such as compassion, and the inhibitory function of the prefrontal cortex. Social relationships and compassion influence different body systems, such as the vagus nerve. Many forms of psychopathology represe...

‘You should always look at the washing machine without actually being in it!’ Thematic framework analysis of patients’ understanding of transdiagnostic cognitive behaviour therapy and its mechanisms
ConclusionThe most important difference between the groups appeared to be CBT ‐specific, that is, cognitive flexibility that characterized the group doing well where thematic analysis did not indicate that other themes were important.Practitioner pointsFindings The analysis revealed four overarching themes and 18 subthemes, four of which corresponded to the difference between the two groups of participants based on treatment efficacy. The four differentiating subthemes were cognitive flexibility and comparison with others, which characterized the group doing well, and cognitive inflexibility and negative attitude towa...

Shame, social deprivation, and the quality of the voice ‐hearing relationship
ConclusionsThe results suggest that therapies that target shame may be helpful when working with negative voice ‐hearing beliefs and relationships. Future research should utilize experimental or longitudinal designs to examine the direction of the relationship.Practitioner points The results contribute to the limited research evidence available regarding the relationship between shame and voice ‐hearing. The results suggest the utility of psychological therapies that focus on shame such as compassion‐focused therapy and that conceptualize voices interpersonally such as cognitive analytic therapy. No conclusions c...

‘Like a human being, I was an equal, I wasn't just a patient’: Service users’ perspectives on their experiences of relationships with staff in mental health services
ConclusionsMental health services should be more focused uponcare, rather thancontrol. The Power Safety Identity (PSI) model, a reflexive model based upon key relational components highlighted by participants, is proposed for services and professionals to consider their work. The components of this model are managed by mental health practitioners and can determine whether these relationships maintain, increase, or alleviate psychological distress.Practitioner points Awareness of the relational components ofpower, safety, andidentity has the potential to help practitioners reflect upon the tensions they experience in thei...

Decision ‐making and risk in bipolar disorder: A quantitative study using fuzzy trace theory
ConclusionsFuzzy trace theory gist and verbatim representations were both independent predictors of risk ‐taking intentions, even after controlling for mood and impulsivity. The results offer an innovative conceptualization of the mechanisms behind risk‐taking in BD.Practitioner points Risk ‐taking behaviour in bipolar disorder is not just a consequence of impulsivity. Measures of fuzzy trace theory help to understand risk‐taking in bipolar disorder. FTT measures predict risk‐taking intentions, after controlling for mood and impulsivity.

Exploring the implementation of cognitive behaviour therapy for psychosis using the Normalization Process Theory framework
ConclusionThe results of this study suggested a mixture of barriers and facilitators to CBTp implementation. Interpreting our findings within an NPT framework indicates the importance of strong clinical leadership to address difficulties in sense ‐making and service investment in CBTp.Practitioner points Findings indicate a mixture of barriers and facilitators to CBTp implementation. NPT analysis indicates difficulties in coherence among stakeholders regarding the purpose and value of CBTp. Difficulties making sense of CBTp translates into service level barriers and impede the collective action of stakeholders. The ...

Social anxiety disorder and avoidant personality disorder from an interpersonal perspective
ConclusionsFrom an interpersonal perspective, the relationship between the diagnostic groups is well described by the severity continuum hypothesis, with similar interpersonal problems related to Nonassertiveness and lower levels of general interpersonal stress in the SAD group compared to the two AvPD groups. However, other differences in severity do not fit the severity continuum hypothesis, as there are no differences in severity on the global severity index, and, moreover, the SAD group has the most severe problems on the SCL ‐90 phobic anxiety scale. Interpersonal pathoplasticity is not found in the diagnostic group...

Engaging patients with “medically unexplained symptoms” in psychological therapy: An integrative and transdiagnostic approach
ConclusionsThe model shows that it is critical for therapists to collaborate closely with GPs to engage these patients while also highlighting barriers to doing this, reflecting the complexities of organizational and cultural change. Clinically, the model illustrates the importance of adopting a flexible, pluralistic, and integrative approach that is person ‐centred and process‐led. Doctors and therapists should embrace a holistic, biopsychosocial stance towards MUS and be sensitively attuned to its complex phenomenology.Practitioner points To engage patients with MUS psychological therapists should be person ‐cent...

Pathways from insecure attachment dimensions to paranoia: The mediating role of hyperactivating emotion regulation versus blaming others
ConclusionsOur study provides a starting point for further investigation of how paranoid delusions in psychosis could emerge from insecure attachment via ER. This might inspire further research into attachment theories of ER in paranoia. In the long term, this could provide a basis to develop interpersonally oriented interventions for this target group.Practitioner points In individuals with psychosis, there appears to be an attachment ‐specific emotion regulation (ER) pathway from attachment anxiety via hyperactivating ER to paranoia. Blaming others did not explain the significant association between attachment avoid...

How do anxious children attempt to regulate worry? Results from a qualitative study with an experimental manipulation
ConclusionsOur results demonstrate that anxious children use a variety of behavioural and cognitive strategies to regulate worry. They use these strategies in combination, they generally perceive them as ineffective, and they sometimes do not report any strategy for attempting to regulate their worry. These results indicate that clinicians should be curious about which strategies anxious children use to regulate their worry, how these strategies interact with each other, and how they are implemented by the child.Practitioner points Using an experimental manipulation followed by an interview, this study sought to investig...

Therapists ’ and non‐therapists’ constructions of heterosex: A qualitative story completion study
ConclusionThese findings raise questions about practitioner training and whether it results in therapists drawing on narrow and restrictive discourses of heterosex in clinical practice.Practitioner points Training on sexual issues is largely absent from non ‐specialist practitioner training courses, which potentially means therapists are ill‐equipped to respond to clients’ anxiety about sexual issues. Evidence from this and other research indicates that therapists’ sense‐making around heterosexual sexual relationships is underpinned by narrow and restrictive discourses that entrench traditional gender ...

Shame and the psychosis continuum: A systematic review of the literature
ConclusionsOverall, several studies provide partial support for the theory that shame is an important factor in relation to psychotic experiences in both clinical and non ‐clinical populations, particularly paranoia. However, the predominance of cross‐sectional designs prevents any conclusions being drawn concerning the temporal nature of associations. Additional research is necessary to further delineate the role of shame in relation to specific psychotic experi ences such as voice‐hearing. Longitudinal research is particularly needed to help establish the directionality and temporal aspects of effects.Practitioner ...
