Implications of comorbid OCD on PTSD treatment: A case study.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(4):344-359

Houston VA HSR&D Center for Innovations in Quality, Effectiveness and Safety, Michael E. De-Bakey VA Medical Center, Houston, Texas.

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. This article details the case of a veteran with comorbid PTSD and OCD who sought intensive trauma-focused treatment within the U. Read More

The SPACE program, a parent-based treatment for childhood and adolescent OCD: The case of Jasmine.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(4):266-287

Child Study Center, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

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

Comprehensive behavioral treatment for an adult with sensory-based trichotillomania: An illustrative case study.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(4):288-307

Post-doctoral fellow, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston.

Trichotillomania (TTM) is a poorly understood condition that causes significant impairment, but effective behavioral management strategies exist. The phenomenology of TTM is complex and requires an individualized treatment approach, and there are some important facets of TTM that have only recently been recognized. Specifically, contemporary research indicates that hair pulling is often performed to regulate aversive sensations and provide somatosensory reward. Read More

Treatment of OCD in a young person: Using the C in CBT.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 ;82(4):326-343

Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

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.

University of Detroit Mercy, Detroit, Michigan.

Carefully listening to the patient is of paramount importance for psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The present study explored whether patient vocalization as well as the gender of the analyst play significant roles in clinical listening. Fifty-one psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic therapists were randomly assigned to listen to one of two dramatized psychoanalytic sessions. Read More

Sexual functioning and disordered eating: A new perspective.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 9;82(1):71-91. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

Central Texas Veterans Health Care System, Olin E. Teague Veterans' Center, Austin, Texas.

Fears about sexual maturity and intimacy were among early explanations for the etiology of eating disorders and related concerns, and research with clinical samples revealed a relationship between eating disorders and atypical sexual experiences. In contrast, feminist scholars offer explanations for both eating disorders and sexual dysfunction that emphasize societal pressures. As an alternative approach to understanding these difficulties, the authors empirically explored the relationship between the cognitive and affective aspects of sexuality and disordered eating among a nonclinical sample of 167 university women.

Like grandparents, like parents: Empirical evidence and psychoanalytic thinking on the transmission of parenting styles.

Bull Menninger Clin 2018 9;82(1):46-70. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

Department of Psychology, University of Milano-Bicocca, Milano, Italy.

The authors discuss the issue of intergenerational transmission of parenting from an empirical and psychoanalytic perspective. After presenting a framework to explain their conception of parenting, they describe intergenerational transmission of parenting as a key to interpreting and eventually changing parenting behaviors. Then they present (1) the empirical approach aimed at determining if there is actually a stability across generations that contributes to harsh parenting and eventually maltreatment and (2) the psyphoanalytic thinking that seeks to explain the continuity in terms of representations and clinical phenomena.

Short-term psychodynamic therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder: A manual-guided approach to treating the "inhibited rebel".

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 26;81(4):341-389. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Department of Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy, University of Giessen, Germany.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic disabling disorder characterized by recurrent obsessions and uncontrolled compulsions. Recent research on anxiety disorders suggests that manual-guided short-term psychodynamic therapy (STPP) may be a promising approach. Building on this, a model of STPP for OCD was developed based on Luborsky's supportive-expressive (SE) therapy. Read More

The coconstruction of interpersonal recognition in the clinical dialogue of the diagnostic process: A multilevel analysis of the verbal content and vocal nonverbal dimension.

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 26;81(4):314-340. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Lecturer at the Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca.

The present study is an empirical evaluation of a clinical setting from a particular point of view, able to integrate the vocal dimension-used in different fields of psychology as an indicator of rational phenomena-with the linguistic dimension of contents. Starting from the "interpersonal recognition" extracted from the contents of the verbatim transcripts of some diagnostic processes using the Strumento di Valutazione del Riconoscimento Interpersonale (Evaluation Tool for Interpersonal Recognition), the variation of vocal parameters both in the clinician and in the patient were analyzed. The goal consists in identifying possible nonverbal vocal micro indicators used in the dyadic process of interpersonal recognition. Read More

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 26;81(4):299-313. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Department of Psychiatry, University of California Irvine School of Medicine, Orange, California.

Autobiographical Memory is a form of declarative episodic memory known to have a significant role in identity, self-regulation, and socialization. Conceivably, it may also influence outcome of psychopathology. This is a preliminary report in which the authors are proposing the notion of Identity Narrative (IdN), a set of implicit memories acquired throughout life and consolidated according to a gradient of emotional valence.

Viersprong Institute for Studies on Personality Disorders (VISPD), Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is common in clinical practice. Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice, and mentalization-based treatment (MBT) is one of the empirically supported treatments that are currently available. For adults, two variants of MBT (MBT day hospital [MBT-DH] and MBT intensive outpatient [MBT-IOP]) have been developed and empirically evaluated. Read More

Need to screen for clinical levels of OCD? Four questions are the key.

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 26;81(3):247-263. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Cognitive and therapy specialist at The Menninger Clinic, Houston, Texas.

The aim of this study was to investigate a new measure, the Wetterneck-Hart OCD Screener (WHOS), as a self-report screening tool for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The authors examined relationships between the WHOS and severity scores of OCD measures taken via three methods of data collection: online, at OCD consumer conferences, and from an intensive, residential OCD program. Severity measures included the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale-Self Report (Y-BOCS-SR), the Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DOCS), and the Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory-Revised (OCI-R).

McNair Scholar and a senior psychologist, The Menninger Clinic, and an associate Professor, Menninger Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine.

In an era of health care that is driven by biological and technical advances, there is a need to safeguard the caring component of care, the humanistic part of care. With this in mind, the authors constructed a Patient-Centered Caring model consisting of three overlapping constructs: delivering customer service, understanding the illness experience, and providing trauma-informed care. These practices operate within an interprofessional competency context. Read More

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 26;81(3):213-232. Epub 2017 Jul 26.

Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The current study developed a new index of violence risk from scales within the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). Clinical patients from inpatient and outpatient settings completed the PAI along with reports of violence history and arrest record. A forward-selection hierarchical logistic regression was employed (N = 388) to identify the PAI scales (AGG-P, AGG-A, NON, PAR-H, and ANT-A) that could effectively distinguish patients with and without a history of violence.

Transference and countertransference: A review.

Bull Menninger Clin 2017 ;81(2):167-211

Department for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, Medical University Vienna, Austria.

Originally a psychodynamic concept, the therapeutic relationship (also therapeutic alliance, helping alliance or simply alliance) has become a pan-theoretical model for the professional relationship between a therapist and his or her client (Kivlighan, 1995). With the development of this concept in the latter half of the 20th century, psychotherapeutic theory and practice saw a paradigm shift away from strict adherence to technique with little room for responsive, individual behavior from the therapist and toward the "authentic" human relationship at the core of therapy. This meant that more consideration was given to the idea of mutual influence from patient and therapist to the success of therapy (Safran & Muran, 2006). Read More

Psychiatrists' emotional reactions: Useful for precise diagnosis in adolescence?

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(4):316-325

Medical University Vienna, Department for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, Vienna, Austria.

Therapist response (countertransference) can be defined as the range of emotions a clinician experiences when interacting with a patient. Previous research has shown that this reaction plays an important role in the establishment of the therapeutic relationship, and that certain psychiatric disorders are systematically related to strong countertransference reactions in clinicians. For this study, 30 videotaped sessions were retrospectively analyzed by one observer using the Therapist Response Questionnaire (TRQ). Read More

Psychosomatic patients in integrated care: Which treatment mediators do we have to focus on?

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(4):326-347

Department of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy at the Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

The field of psychosomatics has gained increasing significance; it has been struggling to establish its position as either an independent discipline or a subdomain of specific areas such as internal medicine or psychiatry. However, the rise of psychosomatic syndromes and disease patterns as well as an increase of specific integrated psychosomatic wards is a clear indication for the growing importance of interdisciplinary approaches to psychosomatic disorders. The study presents data from an 8-week inpatient treatment at a psychosomatic facility and investigates whether patients improved in their subjective symptom experience. Read More

Real time functional MRI training to decrease motion in imaging studies: Lack of significant improvement.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(4):348-356

Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is widely used to study brain circuitry in healthy controls and in psychiatry. A major problem of fMRI studies is motion, which affects the quality of images, is a major source of noise, and can confound data if, for example, the experimental groups move differently. Despite continual reminders to experimental subjects about keeping still, however, movement in the scanner remains a problem. Read More

Mentalizing techniques used by psychodynamic therapists working with children and early adolescents.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(4):281-315

Anna Freud Centre and in the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, Gower Street, London, UK.

The aim of this study was to identify, categorize, and develop a conceptual frame of mentalization-based interventions used by experienced child and adolescent psychodynamic therapists. Two experienced therapists selected 14 sessions that represented their work during the first year of treatment. Sessions were transcribed and segmented to identify interactional units for coding.

The development and preliminary psychometric evaluation of an attachment Implicit Association Task.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(3):255-80

University of Houston.

The importance of measuring attachment insecurity is underscored by a vast literature tying attachment insecurity to numerous psychological disorders. Self-report measures assess explicit attachment beliefs and experiences, while interview measures, like the Adult Attachment Interview, assess implicit internal working models about the self as worthy of care and others as reliable sources of care. The present study is a preliminary psychometric evaluation of a potentially cost-effective method of assessing implicit internal working models of attachment through the development of an Implicit Association Test (IAT).

Birth order and memories of traumatic and family experiences in Greek patients with borderline personality disorder versus patients with other personality disorders.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(3):234-54

First Department of Psychiatry, Center of Psychotherapies and Department of Personality Disorders, Athens University Medical School, Eginition Hospital, Athens, Greece.

The purpose of this study was to assess the possible effect of recalled traumatic experiences, perceived parental rearing styles, and family parameters on the occurrence of borderline personality disorder (BPD) versus other personality disorders (other-PDs). A total of 88 adult outpatients with personality disorders completed the Traumatic Antecedents Questionnaire and the Egna Minnen av Barndoms Uppfostran, which measures perceptions regarding parental rearing. Results indicated that incidence of traumatic childhood experiences was higher among those in the BPD group compared to those in the other-PD group. Read More

The relation between attachment, personality, internalizing, and externalizing dimensions in adolescents with borderline personality disorder.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(3):213-33

William James Center for Research, ISPA - Instituto Universitário, Lisboa, Portugal.

The relation between attachment and personality features is an important field to explore in adolescent borderline personality disorder (BPD), and previous research has shown that personality features may be conceptualized within latent internalizing and externalizing dimensions. This cross-sectional study used a structural equation model to examine the association between the BPD participants' perception of attachment and personality features, mediated by the underlying internalizing/externalizing personality dimensions. Data were analyzed for 60 adolescents, ages 15 to 18 years, diagnosed with BPD who completed attachment and personality self-report measures. Read More

Operationalizing NIMH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) in naturalistic clinical settings.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(3):187-212

The Menninger Clinic, Houston, Texas.

Recently, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) introduced the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) initiative to address two major challenges facing the field of psychiatry: (1) the lack of new effective personalized treatments for psychiatric disorders, and (2) the limitations associated with categorically defined psychiatric disorders. Although the potential of RDoC to revolutionize personalized psychiatric medicine and psychiatric nosology has been acknowledged, it is unclear how to implement RDoC in naturalistic clinical settings as part of routine outcomes research. In this article, the authors present the major RDoC principles and then show how these principles are operationalized in The Menninger Clinic's McNair Initiative for Neuroscience Discovery-Menninger & Baylor College of Medicine (MIND-MB) study.

A qualitative study of cognitive-behavioral therapy for Iranian migrants with mild/moderate depression in Austria.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(2):166-86

Department of Psychology, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

This qualitative study was carried out to investigate the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for Iranian migrants suffering from major depressive disorder (MDD) and living in Austria for an average of 14 years. The qualitative data were collected through interviews based on the Farsi version of the Structured Clinical Interview for the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). However, to obtain more information from the participants, they were asked to talk in more detail about their childhood and teenage years, reasons for immigration, their lifestyle before and after immigration, and their social activities.

Cross-cultural bias in the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder.

Bull Menninger Clin 2016 ;80(2):146-65

Associate professor of psychiatry, Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is an internationally recognized disorder, although it is slightly varied in its nosology in the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10), the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5), and the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders (CCMD). While it is recognized by genetic and neurobiological patterns, instability of affect, impaired interpersonal relationships, and unstable sense of self, its manifestation is extremely varied based on environmental factors, particularly culture. Several studies of the manifestation of BPD between and across countries, particularly in immigrant populations, identify variations in symptom prevalence based on culture. Read More
