Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy/International Institute for the Advanced Study of Psychotherapy and Applied Mental Health, Babeş-Bolyai University, No 37 Republicii Street, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Objective: Cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) is considered the "golden standard" psychotherapy for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) but, at this point, we have little information about differences among various CBT approaches.

Method: We conducted a randomized controlled trial to compare three CBT protocols for GAD: (a) Cognitive Therapy/Borkovec's treatment package; (b) Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and (c) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy/Acceptance-based behavioral therapy. A number of 75 patients diagnosed with GAD, aged between 20 and 51 (m = 27. Read More

Compulsory treatment in eating disorders: Control, provocation, and the coercion paradox.

J Clin Psychol 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Institute of Behavioural Sciences, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.

In eating disorders, the denial of the illness is a central phenomenon. In the most severe forms of anorexia, compulsory treatment may be necessary. The professional acceptance of involuntary treatment is controversial due to the fact that the autonomy of the patient is juxtaposed with the obligation of the health care practitioner to save lives.

The evolution of our understanding and treatment of eating disorders over the past 50 years.

Authors:
Andrea Marks

J Clin Psychol 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Pediatrics, The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY.

Although historical descriptions date back to the Hellenistic era, and Gull's naming of anorexia nervosa as a medical disorder to the late 19th century, it is only in the past 50 years that eating disorders have become widely recognized as the prevalent, potentially fatal, complex, and confounding biopsychosocial illnesses we confront today. This paper reviews the considerable advancements in our knowledge of eating disorders during three time periods: the "early years" of the 1960s and 1970s; the "middle years" of the 1980s and 1990s; and the 21st century to date. The recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition describes six major feeding and eating disorders. Read More

Introduction: Novel perspectives on the psychology and psychotherapy of eating disorders.

J Clin Psychol 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Medical School, Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, Israel.

The aim of this introduction to this issue is to review and summarize significant new psychological perspectives and psychotherapeutic interventions in the treatment of eating disorder (EDs). In this issue, five novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of EDs are presented. These include a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy and neuropsychology, two recent modifications of cognitive behavioral therapy (the MANTRA, and the conceptualization of change in patients with ED in terms of sense of agency), a specific group movement therapy, and an innovative rehabilitation treatment.

Stopping the "revolving door": "Zeida Laderech," a unique rehabilitation house for young adults with severe and enduring eating disorders.

Authors:
Yael Latzer

J Clin Psychol 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

School of Social Work, Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Science, Haifa University, Haifa, Israel.

A failure to maintain improvement achieved during acute treatment, followed by a "revolving door syndrome," is a common phenomenon in eating disorders (EDs). As a result, many patients develop a chronic course that is difficult to treat. To target these difficulties, we established a novel rehabilitation treatment model in Israel for patients with severe and enduring EDs, based on the "recovery theory" in mental health treatment.

J Clin Psychol 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

A sense of agency is a transtheoretical concept that increases our understanding of important processes in psychotherapy. Agency can be described in terms of how strongly the person believes that she can have an impact on her problematic experiences and behaviors. In this case study, a patient's sense of agency in relation to symptoms of bulimia nervosa was assessed during 3 years of psychotherapy. Read More

J Clin Psychol 2019 May 27;75(5):898-911. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Faculty of Medicine, Graduate school, Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile.

The primary aim of this study is to improve our understanding of therapists' experience of a "difficult patient" and consider the different variables involved in this label. What makes a patient be perceived as difficult by a therapist in public health services? Results of our analysis of 10 qualitative semistructured interviews of therapists working in public health service in Chile indicated that therapists' perceptions of a "difficult patient" depend on variables that go beyond the patient's intrinsic characteristics, including patients' negative attitude toward the therapist and treating team, patients' negative effects on therapists, and a difficult treatment context (e.g. Read More

J Clin Psychol 2019 May 21;75(5):859-873. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Center for Psychosocial Medicine, Institute for Psychosocial Prevention, University Hospital Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany.

Parent-infant psychotherapy treats parents to reduce infants' symptoms and strengthen the quality of the parent-infant relationship. However, little is known about the change processes that are set in place in parent-infant psychotherapy and the therapeutic techniques that are most helpful. The aim of this study was to provide a comprehensive description of the course of one treatment with a depressed mother of an 8 months old infant who received focused parent-infant psychotherapy (fPIP), a brief psychological intervention that aims at fostering mentalizing in the parent.

The process of change in psychotherapy with a pregnant patient following perinatal losses: An analysis of a case study.

J Clin Psychol 2019 May 15;75(5):874-885. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

The Department of Psychology, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel.

Aim: Despite research suggesting increased anxiety and depressive symptoms after a perinatal loss and during future pregnancies, little knowledge exists to guide clinicians treating pregnant women after perinatal loss. This case study explores processes that facilitated therapeutic change for a pregnant patient with major depressive disorder (MDD) and posttraumatic stress disorder after perinatal losses.

Method: The study integrated quantitative and narrative analyses in a single case derived from the pilot phase of a randomized controlled trial on supportive-expressive therapy for MDD. Read More

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

Objective: This study examined whether a history of childhood abuse (CA) strengthened the association between borderline personality disorder (BPD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath of intimate partner violence (IPV). This hypothesis arises from clinical literature but has not been examined empirically. We predicted that a history of CA would enhance associations between BPD features and PTSD symptoms. Read More
