Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Department of Molecular and Translational Medicine Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, Biostatistics and Epidemiology Consulting Lab, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, El Paso, Texas, USA.

Background: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an FDA-approved, noninvasive modality for treating major depressive disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Earlier studies evaluating therapeutic effects of rTMS on symptom scores of patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and panic disorder (PD) have yielded inconsistent findings.

Methods: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of interventional studies assessing the effect of rTMS on symptom scores in patients with GAD or PD with or without psychiatric comorbidities using studies published up to April 2021. Read More

Treatment engagement of depressed patients with and without psychosis in a partial hospital program: Dropout, symptom reduction, and satisfaction.

Ann Clin Psychiatry 2022 May;34(2):106-113

Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Brown Medical School.

Background: The ways patients with psychosis and depression engage in therapeutic treatment is not well understood.

Methods: The present study from the Rhode Island Hospital Methods to Improve Diagnostic Assessment and Services (MIDAS) project compared dropout rates, treatment response, and satisfaction among 219 individuals with psychosis and major depressive disorder (MDD) to 2,545 individuals with MDD at a general, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy-based partial hospital program (PHP).

Anxiety, depression, and rejection towards parents among individuals who grew up in a hoarded home.

Ann Clin Psychiatry 2022 02;34(1):77-88

Quality of life in trichotillomania: An assessment of specific life domains.

Ann Clin Psychiatry 2022 02;34(1):27-32

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Chicago Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Background: The Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI) gauges importance and satisfaction ratings in areas of life such as work, health, and family. An examination of QOLI scores among individuals with trichotillomania (TTM), a hair-pulling disorder, might provide insight on domain-specific interventions to counteract factors that may be contributing to lower quality-of-life (QOL) scores.

Methods: Three hundred thirty-three adults with TTM and 90 healthy controls (age 18 to 65) completed the QOLI and various symptom severity measures. Read More

Real-life contextualization of exposure therapy using augmented reality: A pilot clinical trial of a novel treatment method.

Ann Clin Psychiatry 2021 11;33(4):220-231

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Background: Phobias, including arachnophobia, are common and can be treated with exposure therapy, a method that is limited by a lack of feared objects/situations in clinical settings.

Methods: In a pilot parallel randomized controlled trial (RCT) to test the feasibility and efficacy of augmented reality exposure therapy (ARET), 25 men and women ages 18 to 45 with arachnophobia were designated (ABAB block allocation) to ARET for arachnophobia (n = 13) or waitlist control (n = 12). Data were collected at baseline, 1-week, and 1-month follow-up, and single-session ARET occurred immediately following baseline collection for the intervention group. Read More
