Excessive reassurance seeking mediates relations between rumination and problematic smartphone use.

Bull Menninger Clin 2020 20;84(2):137-155. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

Associate professor, University of Macau, Macau, Republic of China.

Aside from depression and anxiety, less is known about the relationship of problematic smartphone use (PSU) to other psychopathology- related variables. The authors' aim was to test previously neglected variables in relation to PSU: rumination and excessive reassurance seeking behavior (ERSB). The authors recruited 295 college students for a web-based survey of smartphone use frequency, PSU, depression and anxiety, ruminative thinking, and ERSB. Read More

Psychometric evaluation of the Functional Analytic Psychotherapy Intimacy Scale in obsessive-compulsive and related disorders.

Bull Menninger Clin 2020 26;84(2):156-179. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

Professor, Department of Psychology, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio.

Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) is a contextual behavioral therapy that targets specific ideographic behaviors related to interpersonal functioning and intimacy. There is a scarcity of measures specifically focused on behavioral measurement of intimacy as well as limited studies that examine intimacy in obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCRDs). Leonard and colleagues (2014) created the Functional Analytic Psychotherapy Intimacy Scale (FAPIS). Read More

Treatment of anxiety in older adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorders: A pilot study.

Bull Menninger Clin 2020 22;84(2):105-136. Epub 2020 Jan 22.

Associate professor, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, Los Angeles, California.

Anxiety disorders are commonly comorbid in adolescents and young adults with high-functioning autism. Cognitive-behavioral treatments (CBT) for anxiety, when adapted and expanded to target autism spectrum disorder (ASD) characteristics, may be beneficial, but there is minimal evidence to guide clinicians in their application. This multiple-baseline design study evaluated the initial efficacy of a CBT protocol adapted to address anxiety symptoms and adaptive functioning in this population. Read More

Considering equifinality in treatment planning for social impairment: Divergent paths in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(3):278-300

Department of Psychology, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) present with deficits in both social cognition and executive functioning (EF), which contribute to social impairment. Autistic youth are also frequently diagnosed with comorbid attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a disorder that, like ASD, includes impaired EF and social functioning. The comorbidity of ASD and ADHD may result in compounded social impairment, but prior research has not sufficiently evaluated the extent to which this comorbidity profile responds to evidence-based intervention targeting social deficits.

Social performance-based interventions promote gains in social knowledge in the absence of explicit training for youth with autism spectrum disorder.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(3):301-325

Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York.

Youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience deficits in social knowledge. It has long been theorized that these youth must learn these skills explicitly, and social skills interventions (SSIs) have followed suit. Recently, performance-based SSIs have emerged, which promote in vivo opportunities for social engagement without explicit instruction. Read More

Teaching emotion regulation to children with autism spectrum disorder: Outcomes of the Stress and Anger Management Program (STAMP).

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(3):235-258

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia.

Young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) struggle with emotion regulation (ER), which is developmentally preceded by lability/negative affect (L/N), and their parents face unique challenges to parenting and providing assistance. The Stress and Anger Management Program (STAMP) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment designed to address ER deficits in young children with ASD through child skill-building and parent training. The current study evaluated child L/N, ER, and parental confidence outcomes in 4- to 7-year-old children with ASD ( = 23; 19 boys) and their parents randomly assigned to a treatment ( = 12) or a waitlist control group ( = 11).

Update on the effectiveness of psychotherapy for anxiety disorders in children and adolescents with ASD.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(3):326-352

University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

A growing body of research has examined the efficacy of varying formats (individual, group, linear, modular) of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as a treatment for anxiety disorders in children and youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The present review utilized Chambless and Hollon's (1998) criteria for efficacious treatments to: (1) critically review the current evidence base for the efficacy of CBT for anxiety disorders in ASD; and (2) provide recommendations for future research. Findings identify two probably efficacious CBT programs (one group and one individual program) and five possibly efficacious programs, but no well-established programs. Read More

Conceptualizing and managing risk in pediatric OCD: Case examples.

Bull Menninger Clin 2020 5;84(1):3-20. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

It is not uncommon for patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) to present with symptoms that suggest possible risk. This can include apparent risk, which reflects the content of obsessional fears, and genuine risk arising as the unintended consequence of compulsive behaviors. In both situations, risk can cause confusion in relation to diagnosis and treatment. Read More

Acceptance-enhanced behavior therapy for trichotillomania: Randomized controlled trial rationale, method, and strategies for recruiting minority participants.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 5;83(4):399-431. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Trichotillomania (TTM) involves the chronic pulling out of hair to the point of hair loss or thinning, which continues despite repeated attempts to stop. Behavior therapy is a promising treatment for the condition, but studies have been limited by the lack of a credible control condition, small sample sizes, follow-up periods of short duration, and low participation by underrepresented populations. In the current article, the authors describe the theoretical rationale for an acceptance-enhanced form of behavior therapy for TTM in adults and describe the methodology used to test the efficacy of this intervention against a psychoeducation and supportive control condition.

Is countertransference a valid source of clinical information? Investigating emotional responses to audiotaped psychotherapy sessions.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 10;83(4):353-375. Epub 2019 Jun 10.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychosomatische Medizin und Psychotherapie, Technische Universität München, Germany.

The study aimed to test whether countertransference reactions contain valid information about the patient. The authors examined whether a significant part of the variance in emotional, cognitive, and motivational responses to recorded therapy sessions is attributable to the patient. Six student raters listened to 605 audiotaped sessions of 81 patients with major depression treated by 19 therapists and indicated their reactions using a modified version of the Countertransference Questionnaire.

Preliminary evidence of biased attentional mechanisms and reward processing in adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(2):128-151

Research assistant, Department of Pediatrics, University of South Florida-Tampa, Florida.

Individuals with obsessive-compulsive-disorder (OCD) may have difficulties in using feedback from rewarding and punishing experiences to optimally guide future decisions. The current aim was to examine how adults with OCD use associative learning feedback to direct attention toward learned stimuli when the action-outcome contingency for those stimuli has changed. Participants first learned to select high-probability (over low-probability) rewarding stimuli and low-probability (over high-probability) loss stimuli. Read More

Trajectories of pediatric sleepiness and their associations with health-related quality of life.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(2):175-197

Clinical Child Psychology Program, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas.

The need for sleep in children has sparked extensive research, with inconclusive support for an association between sleep duration and sleep quality and health-related quality of life (HR-QOL). Daytime sleepiness, which captures a child's subjective sleep experience, has seldom been explored. Latent class growth analysis (LCGA) was employed to identify longitudinal trajectories of children's sleepiness. Read More

Development and validation of the Physical Activity Body Experiences Questionnaire.

Bull Menninger Clin 2019 ;83(1):53-83

Department of Psychology, Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio.

Embodiment is defined as a state in which one experiences one's physical body as an essential aspect of one's lived experiences, a potential protective factor against body image and eating disturbance. The Physical Activity Body Experiences Questionnaire (PABEQ) was rationally derived as a measure of embodiment based on focus groups, literature reviews, and expert review. The PABEQ and measures of body image, self-objectification, and disordered eating were administered to two samples randomly selected from a pool of 606 female undergraduate students at least 18 years of age and a third test-retest sample of 58 female undergraduates.

Given the high degree of diagnostic overlap and limited empirical literature surrounding the comorbidity between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), appropriately conceptualizing the relationship between the comorbid symptoms and their impact on the treatment process can be challenging. This is especially true when the symptoms of the two disorders become functionally connected, with each symptom set maintaining the other.

Current evidence-based treatments for obsessive-compulsive disorder in children and adolescents include cognitive-behavioral therapy, specifically exposure and response prevention, and psychopharmacological treatments. Despite the established efficacy of these treatments, many youth do not benefit from them, and barriers, including lack of motivation and resistance to treatment, prevent many youth from even attempting them. Parent-based treatments offer an alternative approach to child-based therapy. Read More

Evidence for using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in young people emphasizes the use of exposure with response prevention (ERP) as the key ingredient. CBT with a cognitive focus is used more often in adults, and comparatively there is less evidence for its use with young people. Although a significant proportion of young people with OCD respond well to CBT using ERP, a subset does not. Read More

Reconciling stakeholder interests in the era of open data.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(3):253-259

Texas State University, San Marcos, Texas.

While there is great enthusiasm about new data sharing initiatives in mental health research, some concerns have recently been expressed that reflect tension between those who generate data and those who engage in secondary data analysis. While many aspects of data sharing have been considered, some of this tension has not been fully addressed. If this tension continues to go unresolved, enthusiasm for data sharing initiatives may be hindered. Read More

The relationship between defense mechanisms and religious coping using a new two-factor solution for the Defense Style Questionnaire-40.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(3):224-252

Pacella Research Center of the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, New York, New York.

This study examined the factor structure of the Defense Style Questionnaire (DSQ-40) and explored the relationships between defense mechanisms and religious coping in a diverse sample of 380 college students. In contrast with the three-factor model of defenses proposed by the developers of the DSQ-40, principal axis factoring yielded two internally consistent components: adaptive and maladaptive defense styles. Endorsement of adaptive defenses was positively correlated with the use of positive religious coping strategies and negatively correlated with negative religious coping. Read More

Psychometric evaluation of the Inventory of Interpersonal Problems 32.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(2):93-113

Department of Psychology, Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas.

The Inventory of Interpersonal Problems 32 (IIP-32; Horowitz, Aiden, Wiggins, & Pincus, 2000) is a brief, 32-item, self-report questionnaire used to screen for interpersonal problems. While studies of the IIP-32's psychometric properties have been conducted in other nations, and studies have examined the psychometric properties of the IIP-32's circumplex structure, no studies have examined the factor-analytic structure in the United States since the original standardization sample. The aim of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the IIP-32 in American college women for the first time and explore its structural validity as a circumplex measure and its concurrent validity with measures of attachment.

Schizophrenia as a psychosomatic illness: An interdisciplinary approach between Lacanian psychoanalysis and the neurosciences.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 9;82(1):1-18. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

Assistant professor, Research Center for Psychoanalysis and Society, EA3522, UFR Psychoanalytic Studies, University Paris-Diderot Sorbonne-Cité, Paris, France.

According to Lacan's theory of schizophrenia (as well as other delirious forms of psychosis), under certain conditions the signifying function breaks down, thus turning the schizophrenic individual's world into one in which a number of events become enigmatic and signal him or her. The schizophrenic individual tries to deal with these signs that besiege him or her either by means of an interpretative attitude (a stable delusional mood) or by apathy. These two types of responses correspond with the stereotypical (and mood) processes by which the schizophrenic individual attempts to avoid the distress provoked by the enigmatic desire of the Other, while simultaneously corresponding with psychosomatic processes of the brain organ.
