Am J Psychother 2020 Mar 3;73(1):8-14. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Department of Clinical Psychological Science, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Maastricht University, Maastricht, the Netherlands (Lemmens, van Bronswijk, Peeters, Roefs); Department of Clinical Psychology, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam (Arntz); Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee (Hollon); Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (DeRubeis, Huibers); Department of Clinical Psychology, VU University Amsterdam, Amsterdam (DeRubeis, Huibers).

Objective: Although the effectiveness of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and cognitive therapy (CT) for major depression has been established, little is known about how and for whom they work and how they compare in the long term. The latter is especially relevant for IPT because research on its long-term effects has been limited. This overview paper summarizes findings from a Dutch randomized controlled trial on the effects and mechanisms of change of IPT versus CT for major depression. Read More

Laura J Dietz

Am J Psychother 2020 Mar 13;73(1):22-28. Epub 2020 Feb 13.

Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh.

Family-based interpersonal psychotherapy (FB-IPT) is an evidence-based psychosocial intervention for depression in preadolescents (ages 8-12 years). Adapted from interpersonal psychotherapy for adolescents with depression and modified for younger children, this therapy includes structured dyadic sessions with preadolescents and their parents, guidance for parents in supporting their children and decreasing negative parent-child interactions, and a focus on preadolescents' comorbid anxiety and peer relationships. This article reviews the conceptual foundations and risk factors related to preadolescent depression and the rationale for focusing on improving preadolescents' interpersonal relationships to decrease depressive symptoms and risk for depression during adolescence.

Examination of the Interpersonal Model With Adolescent Military Dependents at High Risk for Adult Obesity.

Am J Psychother 2020 Jun 13;73(2):43-49. Epub 2020 Feb 13.

Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, Maryland (Pine, Shank, Higgins Neyland, Schvey, Quattlebaum, Leu, Olsen, Sbrocco, Klein, Quinlan, Tanofsky-Kraff); Department of Medicine, Military Outcomes Cardiovascular Research, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda (Shank, Higgins Neyland, Tanofsky-Kraff); Department of Psychology, Fordham University, New York (Burke); Section on Growth and Obesity, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, (Schvey, Yanovski); Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, (Wilfley); Department of Family and Community Medicine, Pennsylvania State University, State College (Stephens); Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Fort Belvoir, Virginia (Jorgensen, Klein).

Objective: Adolescent military dependents may be at higher risk for psychosocial stressors and disordered eating compared with civilian youths, but the mechanisms underlying these risks are unclear. Interpersonal theory proposes that difficult relationships lead to negative affect, thereby promoting emotional eating, which has been linked to and predictive of disordered eating. The interpersonal model may have particular relevance for understanding disordered eating among adolescent military dependents, given the unique stressors related to their parents' careers.

The Psychotherapy Supervisor as an Agent of Transformation: To Anchor and Educate, Facilitate and Emancipate.

Authors:
C Edward Watkins

Am J Psychother 2020 Jun 6;73(2):57-62. Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Department of Psychology, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas.

Objective: The objective of this review was to answer the question, What do supervisors actually do in promoting transformative change in the beginning therapist supervisee? New therapist trainees, lacking treatment skills and a sense of "therapist identity," are prone to experience self-doubt, feel anxious and demoralized, and think of themselves as impostors. Psychotherapy supervision can be helpful and encouraging to beginning therapists in their process of development.

Methods: Using Mälkki and Green's concepts of liminality, edge emotions, and boundary confusion as framework, the author examines the pivotal role of the supervisor in striving to create a transformative supervision space. Read More

Mentalizing in Interpersonal Psychotherapy.

Am J Psychother 2019 Dec 22;72(4):95-100. Epub 2019 Nov 22.

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York (Markowitz); Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College, Cornell University, New York (Milrod); Department of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium (Luyten); Department of Brain Sciences, University College London, London (Luyten); Department of Behavioral Sciences and Learning, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden (Holmqvist).

Mentalization-how people understand their own minds and those of others-is an attachment-based, normative, cognitive, and affective capacity important to interpersonal relations and to certain kinds of psychotherapy. Mentalization seems related to aspects of, and may hold important implications for, interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT). Weissman and colleagues' IPT manual does not explicitly describe improvement in mentalization as a targeted outcome of therapy, but IPT may utilize mentalization as an underlying process. Read More

Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy for Patients With Major Depressive Disorder.

Am J Psychother 2020 Mar 22;73(1):29-34. Epub 2019 Nov 22.

Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Otago Christchurch, Christchurch, New Zealand (all authors).

Objective: This study aimed to conduct a safety analysis among patients with major depressive disorder receiving interpersonal and social rhythm therapy (IPSRT) with and without cognitive remediation.

Methods: This preliminary safety analysis of the outcomes of patients with major depressive disorder was part of a larger randomized controlled trial (RCT) in which patients with bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder received IPSRT; half were randomly assigned to receive additional cognitive remediation. The study focused on patients with major depressive disorder because IPSRT had not been trialed with this group; their outcomes were compared with those of patients with bipolar disorder. Read More

Multicultural Orientation in Psychotherapy Supervision: Cultural Humility, Cultural Comfort, and Cultural Opportunities.

Am J Psychother 2019 Jun 4;72(2):38-46. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Psychology, University of North Texas, Denton (Watkins, Hook); Department of Counseling Psychology, University of Denver (Owen); Department of Counseling and Psychological Services, Georgia State University, Atlanta (DeBlaere, Davis); Department of Psychology, Hope College, Holland, Michigan (Van Tongeren).

As a complement to multicultural competence, the multicultural orientation (MCO) perspective has been proposed as a pragmatic way to enhance cultural understandings about psychotherapeutic dynamics, processes, and outcomes. Consisting of three core components-cultural humility, cultural comfort, and cultural opportunities-the MCO is considered relevant for both individual and group treatment. However, the MCO perspective has yet to be specifically applied to psychotherapy supervision. Read More

Department of Psychology, Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel (Arnon-Ribenfeld, Bloom, Atzil-Slonim, Peri, Hasson-Ohayon); Department of Clinical Psychology, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam (de Jong).

People with schizophrenia spectrum disorder face a major challenge in the ability to reflect on their own and others' mental activities and about specific psychological problems in their lives. These deficits are associated with increased symptoms and lower functioning. Specific interventions have been designed to enhance these abilities, one of which is metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT). Read More

Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT) for Persons With a Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorder and Interpersonal Trauma.

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 21;71(4):186-195. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Department of Psychology, Chillicothe VA Medical Center, Chillicothe, Ohio (Hillis, Bidlack); Department of Psychology, Louisville VA Medical Center, Louisville (Macobin).

Schizophrenia often involves a loss of metacognitive capacity, the ability to form complex and integrated representations of self and others. Independent of symptoms and neurocognition, deficits in synthetic metacognition are related to difficulties engaging in goal-directed activities in social and vocational settings. Against this backdrop, the authors provide a case report of the effects of metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT) provided over the course of seven months to assist a client with persistent schizophrenia.

Risk Management with Clients Who Stalk, Threaten, and Harass Mental Health Professionals.

Am J Psychother 2018 Nov;71(3):110-120

School of Psychological Sciences, University of Indianapolis, Indianapolis, IN.

Although most psychologists will at some point be confronted with a client who engages in stalking, threatening, or harassing behavior (STHB), few feel prepared to manage these situations. In this article, the results of a survey of 112 psychologists who endorsed experiencing STHB are reported. Psychologists were asked about their perceptions of client motivations and personality pathology, frequency of use of 18 risk management responses, and perceived effectiveness of these responses.

Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy for Schizophrenia: Case Study of a Patient With a Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorder.

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 7;71(4):155-163. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Psychiatry, Kaiser Permanente, Redwood City, California (James); Department of Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis (Leonhardt); Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indianapolis (Buck).

Decrements in metacognitive functioning, or the ability to form complex and integrated representations of oneself and others, have been identified as a core feature of schizophrenia. These deficits have been observed to be largely independent of the severity of psychopathology and neurocognitive functioning and are linked to poor outcomes for those with the disorder. This study is a case illustration of the efficacy of metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT) in increasing the metacognitive capacity of an individual diagnosed as having co-occurring schizophrenia and a substance use disorder during three years of individual therapy.

Recovery in First-Episode Psychosis: A Case Study of Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT).

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 7;71(4):128-134. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Prevention and Recovery Center, Eskenazi Health/Midtown Community Mental Health, Indianapolis (Leonhardt, Ratliff, Vohs); Department of Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis (Leonhardt, Vohs).

Despite historically pessimistic views from both the professional community and lay public, research is emerging that recovery from psychosis is possible. Recovery has evolved to include not only a reduction in symptoms and return to functioning, but a sense of agency and connection to meaningful roles in life. The development of a more comprehensive conceptualization of recovery has particular importance in the treatment of first-episode psychosis, because early intervention may avoid some of the prolonged dysfunction that may make recovery difficult.

Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT): Application to a Long-Term Therapy Case of Borderline Personality Disorder.

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 7;71(4):145-154. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indianapolis (Buck and Kukla); San Francisco VA Healthcare Service, San Francisco (Vertinski); Department of Psychology, Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (Kukla).

Impairments in metacognitive capacity-or the processes that enable individuals to access, understand, and integrate their ideas about their own and others' mental states-are a core barrier to recovery for many people with borderline personality disorder. Although therapeutic approaches that focus on metacognitive capacity are emerging, few deal with the concept of recovery at a foundational level. This article describes how a form of metacognitively oriented psychotherapy focused on recovery, metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT), assisted a patient with borderline personality disorder and initial metacognitive deficits to develop a complex understanding of himself and others and then to use that knowledge to act as an agent in the world and effectively respond to life challenges.

Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy for Persons With Severe Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia.

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 7;71(4):135-144. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

School of Psychological Science, University of Indianapolis, Indianapolis (George); Richard L. Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Indianapolis (Buck).

Individuals with schizophrenia possess enduring deficits that limit their capacity for interpersonal connection. Negative symptoms of schizophrenia provide additional barriers to interpersonal relatedness in that they include a range of deficits related to an individual's ability to express and experience emotions-basic human capacities that are needed for daily functioning and an acceptable quality of life. Additionally, metacognitive deficits are closely related to the development and maintenance of negative symptoms; previous research has indicated that treatment of negative symptoms should focus on providing interventions that target metacognition.

Application of Integrative Metacognitive Psychotherapy for Serious Mental Illness.

Am J Psychother 2018 Dec 10;71(4):122-127. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Eskenazi Health, Midtown Community Mental Health, Indianapolis (Hamm); Department of Psychiatry, Roudebush Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Indianapolis (Lysaker), and Department of Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis (Lysaker).

Recovery for many people with serious mental illness is more than symptom remission or attainment of certain concrete milestones. It can also involve recapturing a previously lost coherent and cohesive sense of self. The authors review several case studies of integrative metacognitive psychotherapy offered to adults with broadly differing clinical presentations. Read More

Humor Associated With Positive Outcomes in Individual Psychotherapy.

Am J Psychother 2018 Nov 12;71(3):95-103. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Psychiatry, Hôpital St. Joseph, Liège, Belgium (Panichelli); private practice, Cabinet Bois-le-Comte, Sprimont, Belgium (Panichelli); Université de Liège, Département des Sciences de la Santé Publique, Service de Biostatistique, Liège, Belgium (Albert, Donneau); Université de Liège, Service de Clinique Systémique et Psychopathologie Relationnelle, Liège, Belgium (D'Amore); Hôpital de Jour Universitaire La Clé, Liège, Belgium (Triffaux); Université de Liège, Département des Sciences Cliniques/Psychiatrie et Psychologie Médicale, Liège, Belgium (Ansseau).

Considerable anecdotal evidence points to the usefulness of humor in the therapeutic process, but empirical evidence is lacking. The purpose of this study, conducted in Belgium, was to search for an association between humor and therapy outcomes in a population of 110 adult psychotherapy clients who attended at least 10 therapy sessions. Clients and their therapist evaluated the frequency and intensity of humorous events, as well as therapy effectiveness, therapeutic alliance, perceived hope, and pleasure in participating in therapy sessions.

Relationship of Christian Beliefs to Attitudes Toward People With Mental Illness.

Am J Psychother 2018 Nov 12;71(3):104-109. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Psychology, Counseling, and Family Therapy, Valdosta State University, Valdosta, GA (all authors).

This study assessed the influence of Christian beliefs on attitudes toward people with mental illness. Participants (N=204) provided demographic information and completed the Christian Orthodoxy Scale, the Religious Fundamentalism Scale, and the Attitudes to Mental Illness Questionnaire. Participants read vignettes of a person with a mental illness (schizophrenia), a general medical illness (diabetes), and a control condition (practicing Christian) and rated them on five criteria representing stigmatizing attitudes.

The Supervision Pyramid: A Commonalities-Based Synthesis of Intervention, Relationship, and Person/Personhood.

Authors:
C Edward Watkins

Am J Psychother 2018 Nov 15;71(3):88-94. Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Dr. Watkins is with the Department of Psychology, University of North Texas, Denton (e-mail: ).

Adapting the therapeutic pyramid to the supervision of psychotherapy, the author presents and describes the supervision pyramid-a simple meta-model of the broad conceptual organizers of the supervisor's contribution to the experience and outcomes of supervision. The supervision pyramid consists of three commonalities: supervisor skills and interventions, the supervisory relationship, and the supervisor's person and personhood. Those three commonalities converge to stimulate supervisee learning and relearning and client improvement and symptom reduction. Read More
