Comparing Attitudes to Containment Measures of Patients, Health Care Professionals and Next of Kin.

Front Psychiatry 2018 26;9:529. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, University Hospital of Psychiatry Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

In clinical psychiatric practice, health care professionals (HCP) must decide in exceptional circumstances after the weighing of interests, which, if any, containment measures including coercion are to be used. Here, the risk for patients, staff, and third parties, in addition to therapeutic considerations, factor into the decision. Patients' preference and the inclusion of relatives in these decisions are important; therefore, an understanding of how patients and next of kin (NOK) experience different coercive measures is crucial for clinical decision making.

Altered cellular immune reactivity in traumatized women with and without major depressive disorder.

Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Berlin, Germany. Electronic address:

Alterations of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis such as altered glucocorticoid receptor sensitivity and increased immune reactivity might contribute to the pathogenesis of major depressive disorder (MDD). Exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACE) precipitates vulnerability to MDD and might be associated with endocrine and immune alterations in the disorder. In order to disentangle the effects of ACE and MDD, we recruited 87 women: n = 23 with MDD and ACE as determined by clinical interview and questionnaires (Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV, Early Trauma Inventory, Childhood Trauma Questionnaire), n = 24 with MDD without ACE, n = 21 with ACE but no current or lifetime MDD, and n = 26 healthy women without either MDD or ACE.
