Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Tilburg University, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

We examined several aspects of the crying experiences of physicians and medical interns, including the most common reasons to cry in the workplace, and their perceptions of and attitudes towards crying in the workplace and in the presence of a patient. A sample of Dutch physicians and medical interns (N = 1068 and N = 302 and for the full version N = 776 and N = 181) completed an especially designed anonymous online questionnaire about experiences with crying in the workplace, and perceptions of and attitudes towards crying in the workplace and in the presence of patients. Crying is a rather frequent behavior among physicians, in particular when they have to deal with the severe suffering of patients and their relatives. Read More

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Advanced Studies in Psychology, Kean University, 1000 Morris Ave., Union, NJ, 07083, USA.

More than 2 million people in the United States are living with some form of aphasia, a communication disorder that has been associated with high incidence of clinical depression. Despite their large numbers, persons with aphasia have received little clinical attention from psychologists and other mental health providers. The life participation interventions and supported communication methods developed and routinely employed by speech-language pathologists could assist mental health professionals in addressing the needs of this underserved population.

Theoretical Rationale and Case Illustration of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Fear of Cancer Recurrence.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Behavioral Medicine Program, Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is a common problem among cancer survivors and evidence-based interventions grounded in theoretical models are needed. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based intervention for reducing health anxiety that could be useful to apply to FCR. However, there has only been one study of MBCT for FCR to date, and the theoretical rationale and practical application of MBCT for FCR has not been described. Read More

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Webster University, St. Louis, MO, 63119, USA.

Cancer centers have adopted a holistic approach to cancer treatment to better meet the psychosocial needs of cancer survivors. However, the current number of psychosocial providers in oncology is inadequate to meet the growing demand and psychosocial providers may face barriers in accessing oncology-specific training. The current study aims to explore the career development of psychologists working in oncology to inform training and workplace supports, as well as to inform training for health psychologists interested in other sub-specialties.

Acceptability of the Stepped Care Model of Depression Treatment in Primary Care Patients and Providers.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Psychology, Rowan University, 201 Mullica Hill Road, Glassboro, NJ, 08028, USA.

Primary care has become the first and only point of contact for a majority of individuals experiencing depressive symptoms. One alternative model of care that has been adopted in international primary care settings as an alternative to standard care is the stepped care model. Emerging evidence suggests that the stepped care model is at least as effective as standard care for depression; however, little is known about attitudes of patients and providers regarding this model, especially within the US.

The Grief of Parents After the Death of a Young Child.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Division of General Pediatrics, Department of Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115, USA.

Research demonstrates that severe forms of grief and grief-related pathology exist in the general population. Less attention, however, has been paid to the grief of parents following the death of a young, dependent child. In this review, we summarize a search of Pubmed, PsycINFO and Web of Science from 1995 to 2017, using the terms 'parental complicated grief', 'parental traumatic grief', and 'parent Prolonged Grief Disorder', specifically addressing parental grief and identified risk factors for complicated or prolonged grief.

Brief Behavioral Intervention for Disruptive Behavior in a Child with a Hypothalamic Hamartoma: A Case Report.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Pediatrics, Psychology Service, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital, 6701 Fannin Street, CCC 1630, Houston, TX, 77030-2399, USA.

Most children with hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) manifest symptoms of epilepsy and associated cognitive deficits and behavioral difficulties as well as central precocious puberty (CPP). However, there is little to no research examining behavioral difficulties in children with HH without epilepsy, nor is there research examining treatments to address the behavioral difficulties of patients with HH without epilepsy. In the current case report, the authors implemented a validated parent management training program [the Brief Behavioral Intervention (BBI)], to treat symptoms of ADHD and disruptive behavior in a 6-year-old female patient with HH and CPP.

Institute of Psychology, Health & Society, University of Liverpool, Whelan Building, Brownlow Hill, Liverpool, L69 3GB, UK.

We appraise the role of screening for distress as part of health psychology assessment of patients newly diagnosed with cancer. We reviewed records of consecutive patients who accepted a health psychologist's assessment over 4 years, examining convergence and divergence of the result of screening (whether patients reached threshold as 'cases') with the psychologist's clinical judgment of need for intervention. Of 261 patients, 88 (33. Read More

Predicting Posttraumatic Growth in Mothers and Fathers of Critically Ill Children: A Longitudinal Study.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Biological and Health Psychology, Psychology Faculty, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain.

Research on parental psychological effects related to a child's critical illness has focused on studying negative outcomes, while the possibility of posttraumatic growth (PTG), defined as the perception of positive changes after a traumatic event, has been overlooked. This study explores the degree of parental PTG after a child's hospitalization in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and the role of resilience, emotions, perceived severity of the child's condition and stress in predicting PTG. In the first 48 h after their child's discharge from a PICU, N = 196 parents were assessed for resilience, emotions, perceived stress, and the degree to which they perceived their child's condition as severe.

Motivational Interviewing Training Outcomes Among Providers in a Children's Hospital.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Motivational interviewing (MI) has proven a well-established psychotherapeutic intervention designed to enhance motivation for behavior change. While the benefits of MI have been established, little research has systematically evaluated dissemination of MI efforts to healthcare providers, especially among pediatric providers. The present pilot study evaluated whether healthcare providers gained valuable knowledge, confidence and desire to utilize MI, and skills in MI techniques and if these outcomes varied based on provider characteristics or duration and intensity of MI training.

Health Care Decisions and Delay of Treatment in Companion Animal Owners.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Psychology Department, Marshall University, 1 John Marshall Drive, Harris Hall 304, Huntington, WV, 25755, USA.

Previous research has indicated that companion animal ownership may confer health benefits; however, no studies have considered how companion animal ownership impacts key health decisions. The purpose of the current studies was to examine the extent to which animal-related factors influence health care decision making, specifically, owners' willingness to proceed with necessary medical treatments. In Study 1, a sample of 162 companion animal owners was recruited via Amazon Mechanical Turk to complete an online survey which included measures of social support, quality of relationship with the companion animal and two vignettes describing needed hospitalization.

The Role of Pediatric Psychologists in the Transition of Youth to Adult Health Care: A Descriptive Qualitative Study of Their Practice and Recommendations.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Nov 12. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Psychology, Université de Montréal, Montreal, Canada.

Transition from pediatric to adult health care setting is a challenge for young patients because of the psychosocial issues they may present that could hinder their commitment to treatment and medical care. Psychologists play a key role in supporting these patients. They intervene with the most vulnerable ones for whom the current transitional practice does not necessarily meet their specific needs and help them to develop an appropriate level of autonomy despite medical condition.

Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid, 22110, Jordan.

This study was performed to check the hypothesis that low serum vitamin D and reduced calcium intake may contribute to the comorbidity of psychological symptoms (anxiety and depression) and non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP). The design was a case-control study that involved 40 subjects with NCCP and 40 age and gender-matched healthy controls. Serum vitamin D was assessed using electrochemiluminescence immunoassay; anxiety and depression symptoms were assessed using Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and dietary calcium intake was assessed by self-reporting.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Jul 24. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

The University of Tulsa, Tulsa, OK, USA.

Sleep disorders are frequently under assessed and not well understood by medical practitioners. This study investigated medical practitioners' knowledge of, experience with, and treatment considerations for sleep disorders, with a particular emphasis on nightmares. Eighty-eight individuals practicing medicine in the United States completed a survey eliciting information in three domains: (a) professional experience with nightmares, (b) knowledge of nightmares, and (c) attitudes about treatment of sleep disturbances.

The Role of Disease Conviction: Exploring Its Effects on Chest Pain and Anxiety-Related Models of Non-cardiac Chest Pain.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Jun 12. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of disease conviction in the chest pain and life interference of patients with non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP), after controlling for anxiety sensitivity and body vigilance. While all three psychological constructs are theoretically implicated and empirically associated with the experience of NCCP, no research has examined the influence of disease conviction in the context of other relevant constructs. The sample included 229 participants with NCCP who were recruited after a medical evaluation failed to elicit an organic explanation for their chest pain. Read More

Patient Activation Mediates the Association Between Psychosocial Risk Factors and Spine Surgery Results.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2018 Jun 8. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Department of Psychological Sciences, Kent State University, Kent, OH, 44242, USA.

Although spine surgery (SS) and spinal cord stimulators (SCSs) can provide significant relief for patients with intractable pain, their effectiveness is variable. Previously, a number of pre-operative psychosocial risk factors have predicted suboptimal outcomes of these procedures. However, recent research has found that "patient activation"-the extent to which patients are engaged and active in their own health care-can predict positive surgical results. Read More

You Can't Take Your Baby Home Yet: A Longitudinal Study of Psychological Symptoms in Mothers of Infants Hospitalized in the NICU.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Mar;26(1):116-122

Teachers College, Columbia University, 525 West 120th Street, Box 102, New York, NY, 10027, USA.

Evidence suggests that mothers of infants hospitalized in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) experience elevated rates of psychological symptoms. However, previous studies of this population have been mainly cross-sectional and have focused on very preterm infants. Although moderate- to late-preterm infants generally thrive, the possible psychological toll on their mothers has not yet been sufficiently examined. Read More

The Effects of Pre-treatment Depressive Symptoms on Quality of Life Across Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Mar;26(1):97-105

Covenant Pain Therapies Center, Huntsville, AL, USA.

Recent studies suggest that chronic pain affects millions and carries significant physical, financial, and social burdens, and thus adversely affects quality of life (QOL). Cognitive behavioral therapy for chronic pain (CBTp) is a non-pharmacological treatment method which has been shown to reduce a sufferer's experience of chronic pain and improve overall QOL. These and other studies also indicate that affective symptoms likely impact the effectiveness of CBTp. Read More

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Mar;26(1):88-96

Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Meibergdreef 5, 1105 AZ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Previous research suggests that acute pain is a risk factor for later posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS). In a prospective cohort study, we examined the association between acute pain from accidental injury and PTSS in children and adolescents, taking into account factors potentially related to pain or posttraumatic stress. Participants were 135 children and adolescents, 8-18 years old. Read More

Department of Psychology, University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, MS, USA.

This study describes the development and psychometric evaluation of an adolescent self-report version of the Pediatric Diabetes Routines Questionnaire (PDRQ:A), a measure of diabetes-specific routines for youth with type 1 diabetes, and further validation of the parent-version (PDRQ:P) in an adolescent sample. Participants included 120 parent-adolescent dyads (ages 12-17) and an additional 24 parents who completed measures of diabetes-specific adolescent routines, general adolescent routines, diabetes self-care, and family support of youth diabetes care. The PDRQ:P/A demonstrated good internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and parent-child agreement, and adequate validity coefficients. Read More

Factorial Validity of the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-20) in Clinical Samples: A Critical Examination of the Literature and a Psychometric Study in Anorexia Nervosa.

J Clin Psychol Med Settings 2019 Mar;26(1):33-46

Center for Research in Health Technologies and Services - CINTESIS, Porto, Portugal.

There is extensive use of the 20-item Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-20) in research and clinical practice in anorexia nervosa (AN), though it is not empirically established in this population. This study aims to examine the factorial validity of the TAS-20 in a Portuguese AN sample (N = 125), testing four different models (ranging from 1 to 4 factors) that were identified in critical examination of existing factor analytic studies. Results of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) suggested that the three-factor solution, measuring difficulty identifying (DIF) and describing feelings (DDF), and externally oriented thinking (EOT), was the best fitting model.
