The revised Psychosis Attachment Measure: Measuring disorganized attachment.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 May 15:e12249. Epub 2020 May 15.

Division of Psychology and Mental Health, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, School of Health Sciences, Manchester Academic Health Sciences, The University of Manchester, UK.

Objectives: The Psychosis Attachment Measure (PAM) is currently the most widely used and validated measure of attachment in psychosis. However, the PAM does not assess disorganized attachment, the type of attachment that has been most closely linked with vulnerability to psychosis. This study aimed to expand the PAM to capture the concept of disorganized attachment and to examine its psychometric properties in a psychosis sample. Read More

Scared of compassion: Fear of compassion in anxiety, mood, and non-clinical groups.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 May 4. Epub 2020 May 4.

Psychology Department, University of Waterloo, ON, Canada.

Objectives: Fear of receiving compassion from others, expressing compassion to others, and being compassionate towards oneself have been identified as potentially important factors in the persistence of depression, stress disorders, and eating disorders. There is good reason to expect that these fears may play a role in anxiety and related difficulties, but there is little available information on the extent to which they are present and associated with symptom severity.

Methods: This study compared the severity of the three fears of compassion (receiving, expressing to others, and showing to oneself) in those with a principal diagnosis of depression (n = 34), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD; n = 27), social anxiety disorder (SAD; n = 91), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD, n = 43), and a control sample with no mental health difficulties (n = 212).

The relationship between attachment insecurity and experiences on the paranoia continuum: A meta-analysis.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Mar 30. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

School of Health and Social Care, Edinburgh Napier University, UK.

Objectives: Attachment has long been theorized to play a key role in the development of paranoia. Associations between both constructs have been reported over the last decade, but have ranged widely in magnitude to date. The present study is the first publication to synthesize existing literature and provide a meta-analytic estimate of the attachment-paranoia relationship. Read More

Self-disgust mediates the relationship between childhood adversities and psychosis.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 3;59(2):260-275. Epub 2020 Feb 3.

School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield, UK.

Objective: Traumatic events in childhood have been implicated in the development of psychosis, but given that trauma is not in itself sufficient to cause psychosis, researchers have started to investigate other psychological constructs potentially involved in explaining this relationship. Given that self-disgust as a transdiagnostic construct plays a role in the development/maintenance of a range of mental health difficulties, the objective of this study was to investigate whether self-disgust mediates the relationship between childhood trauma and psychosis.

Method: A cross-sectional quantitative study design was used. Read More

Preventing relapse with personalized smart-messaging after cognitive behavioural therapy: A proof-of-concept evaluation.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 20;59(2):241-259. Epub 2020 Jan 20.

University of Nottingham, UK.

Objectives: Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, but also reduces the risk of future relapse after therapy completion. However, current CBT relapse prevention methods are resource-intensive and can be limited in clinical practice. This paper investigates a personalized means of reducing relapse using smart-messaging in two settings: research and routine care. Read More

The contribution of financial well-being, social support, and trait emotional intelligence on psychological distress.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 30;59(2):224-240. Epub 2019 Dec 30.

Department of Psychology, City College of New York, CUNY, New York, USA.

Objectives: While financial deprivation, social isolation, and low emotional intelligence (EI) have been separately identified as important predictors of mental illness, no research has assessed the contribution of these factors together in understanding early markers of severe psychological distress. This information can have key implications for the development of comprehensive interventions and psychological treatment programmes. This study investigated the shared and unique contribution of financial well-being, social support, and trait EI on different types of psychological distress. Read More

Mind-wandering in children with and without ADHD.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 27;59(2):208-223. Epub 2019 Dec 27.

Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Sweden.

Objectives: Mind-wandering (MW) is a commonly experienced phenomenon, characterized by focus of attention drifting away from the present situation to intrinsically originated thoughts. Studies in adults show that MW is related to ADHD symptoms, but this association is understudied in children. We set out to investigate the associations of MW in children with and without ADHD and to simultaneously validate the self-report Mind Excessively Wandering Scale (MEWS) in children. Read More

Exploring nonverbal synchrony in borderline personality disorder: A double-blind placebo-controlled study using oxytocin.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 27;59(2):186-207. Epub 2019 Nov 27.

Division of Social Neuropsychiatry and Evolutionary Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Preventive Medicine, LWL University Hospital Bochum, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.

Objectives: Interpersonal dysfunction is a central feature of borderline personality disorder (BPD), and the neuropeptide oxytocin (OT) has been shown to impact patients' behaviour in numerous ways. Nonverbal signals such as the coordination of body movement (nonverbal synchrony) are associated with the success of interpersonal exchanges and could thus be influenced by features of BPD and by the administration of OT.

Design: We explored the effect of intranasal OT (inOT) on nonverbal synchrony in sixteen patients with BPD and fifteen healthy controls (CTL) randomly assigned to two double-blind clinical interviews under inOT and placebo (PL). Read More

Modelling changes in anxiety and depression during low-intensity cognitive behavioural therapy: An application of growth mixture models.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Jun 7;59(2):169-185. Epub 2019 Nov 7.

Ulster University, Coleraine, UK.

Objectives: Research largely supports the clinical effectiveness of low-intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (LICBT) for mild-to-moderate anxiety and depression, delivered by psychological well-being practitioners (PWPs). Knowledge regarding the predictors of treatment response, however, is relatively limited. The primary aim of this study was to model the heterogeneity in longitudinal changes in anxiety and depression throughout LICBT provided by PWPs in Northern Ireland (NI), and to explore associations between pre-treatment variables and differences in treatment response.

The relationship between insecure attachment and paranoia in psychosis: A systematic literature review.

Br J Clin Psychol 2020 Mar 7;59(1):39-65. Epub 2019 Aug 7.

Division of Psychology and Mental Health, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, University of Manchester, UK.

Objectives: Paranoia is a key symptom in psychosis and associated with a range of poor outcomes. Earlier life experiences increase vulnerability to paranoid thinking, and attachment theory has been proposed as a key model in explaining this causal pathway. Previous reviews highlight evidence of associations between insecure attachment styles and overall severity of psychotic symptoms. Read More

Empathy for others' pain is disrupted at the neurophysiological level in schizophrenia.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Nov 19;58(4):406-426. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Objective: Previous research has shown that empathy for pain is disrupted at the neural level in people with schizophrenia. However, many of these studies have failed to assess key background contextual variables that have previously been linked to neurophysiological responding. Moreover, no study to date has examined the potential influence of schizotypal characteristics on neurophysiological responding in non-clinical individuals. Read More

Characteristics of severe life events, attachment style, and depression - Using a new online approach.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Nov 13;58(4):427-439. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Social Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, UK.

Objectives: Severe life events are established as provoking agents for depression in combination with vulnerability factors. Identifying features of severe events improves the prediction of disorder but are rarely utilized, mainly because life event research is increasingly dominated by self-report checklists with no capacity for inferring such characteristics. This paper investigates the association of severe life events' features with depression and insecure attachment styles using a new online measure of life events in a clinical and control sample.

Self-reported affective biases, but not all affective performance biases, are present in depression remission.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Sep 10;58(3):274-288. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Objective: Individuals with active major depressive disorder (MDD) have shown affective biases in cognitive flexibility and memory, particularly for negatively valenced stimuli. We evaluated whether impairments in affective flexibility would remain even during remission (rMDD), potentially representing trait- or scar-like effects of illness.

Method: Participants completed the Emotion Card Sort Test (ECST), a measure of cognitive flexibility containing emotionally valenced stimuli, and the Emotion Word Stimulus Test (EWST), a measure of affective biases in delayed recall and recognition memory, and several self-report measures.

Anticipatory pleasure for future experiences in schizophrenia spectrum disorders and major depression: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Nov 10;58(4):357-383. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Department of Clinical Psychology, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Objectives: Deficits in anticipating pleasure may be an important dimension of anhedonia and functioning in psychiatric disorders, particularly schizophrenia and depression; however, inconsistent findings have limited the conclusions that can be drawn. We conducted the first systemic review and meta-analysis of the extant literature for research comparing psychiatric groups to healthy control groups on anticipatory pleasure.

Methods: Academic Search Complete, Science Direct, and CINAHL databases were systematically searched up to 9 June 2018 for relevant peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and dissertations. Read More

A feasibility study of a cross-diagnostic, CBT-based psychological intervention for acute mental health inpatients: Results, challenges, and methodological implications.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Jun 2;58(2):211-230. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

School of Health and Social Care, Edinburgh Napier University, UK.

Objectives: Acute psychiatric inpatient wards are characterized by minimal provision of therapeutic activities and high readmission rates. Implementation of a comprehensive inpatient psychological intervention service has been recommended to overcome these problems; however, whether this is feasible or effective remains unclear.

Methods: This non-randomized parallel cluster feasibility trial examined the feasibility of delivering and evaluating cross-diagnostic psychologically informed acute psychiatric care the Edinburgh-Acute Psychological Inpatient Therapy Service (EDAPTS) and gathered preliminary clinical outcome data.

Comparing cognitive styles in social anxiety and major depressive disorders: An examination of rumination, worry, and reappraisal.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Jun 28;58(2):231-244. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.

Objective: Social anxiety disorder (SAD) and major depressive disorder (MDD) are commonly occurring and frequently comorbid disorders. Though individuals with SAD and MDD are more likely to engage in rumination and worry, relatively few studies have compared individuals with SAD, MDD, or both disorders on their use of these cognitive styles. Similarly, the extent to which the disorders differ in their use of reappraisal remains unclear. Read More

Depression diagnoses, but not individual differences in depression symptoms, are associated with reduced autobiographical memory specificity.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Jun 15;58(2):173-186. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

University of Leuven, Belgium.

Objectives: Difficulties recalling specific events from one's autobiographical past have been associated with a range of emotional disorders. We present the first examination of whether diagnoses of depression or individual differences in depression severity explain the most variance in autobiographical memory specificity. We also examine the contribution of other key cognitive factors associated with reduced memory specificity - rumination and verbal fluency - to these effects. Read More

Testing models of post-traumatic intrusions, trauma-related beliefs, hallucinations, and delusions in a first episode psychosis sample.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Jun 13;58(2):154-172. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Objective: There is increasing evidence that childhood trauma may play a role in the aetiology of psychosis. Cognitive models implicate trauma-related symptoms, specifically post-traumatic intrusions and trauma-related beliefs as primary mechanisms, but these models have not been extensively tested. This study investigated relationships between childhood trauma, psychotic symptoms (hallucinations and delusions), post-traumatic intrusions, and trauma-related beliefs while accounting for comorbid symptoms.

Anticipated and imagined futures: prospective cognition and depressed mood following brain injury.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Mar 21;58(1):91-109. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, UK.

Objectives: Depression, which is common following acquired brain injury (ABI), has been shown to predict cognitive impairment, rehabilitation outcome, and quality of life. Whilst many studies have examined links between depression and cognitive-affective processing in the non-ABI population, their applicability to this important clinical group, where cognitive difficulties can be marked, remains unknown. Here, we investigated biases in prospective cognition, which is known to be disrupted in (non-ABI) depression yet important for well-being. Read More

Paranoia and interpersonal functioning across the continuum from healthy to pathological - Network analysis.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Mar 20;58(1):19-34. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, The University of Texas at Dallas, Richardson, Texas, USA.

Objective: Previous research has suggested that paranoia is associated with impaired social functioning in patients with schizophrenia and healthy individuals with high levels of paranoid ideation. This study analysed the relationship between paranoia and interpersonal functioning across the paranoia continuum using network analysis.

Method: Levels of paranoid ideation and interpersonal functioning were measured in a non-clinical sample (N = 853) and in patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders (N = 226). Read More

Does the addition of cognitive therapy to exposure and response prevention for obsessive compulsive disorder enhance clinical efficacy? A randomized controlled trial in a community setting.

Br J Clin Psychol 2019 Mar 8;58(1):1-18. Epub 2018 Jul 8.

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Objectives: Exposure and response prevention (ERP) remains the most empirically supported psychological treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Clinical guidelines recommend the addition of cognitive approaches to ERP although the presumed additive benefits have not been directly tested. The aim of this was to compare a treatment that integrated cognitive therapy with ERP (ERP + CT) to traditional, manualized ERP to test the additive benefits. Read More

Schizotypal personality traits and social cognition are associated with childhood trauma exposure.

Br J Clin Psychol 2018 Nov 20;57(4):397-419. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales, Randwick, New South Wales, Australia.

Objectives: Childhood trauma is a common risk factor for adult psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia (SZ) and bipolar-I disorder (BD). However, its association with schizotypal personality traits, as well as cognitive and social cognitive abilities, is less well studied in these populations.

Methods: In a cohort of 79 SZ cases, 84 BD cases, and 75 healthy controls (HCs), clinically significant levels of childhood trauma exposure (according to scores on the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire; CTQ) were evident in 54 SZ, 55 BD, and 26 HC individuals. Read More
