Longitudinal associations between positive attributes and psychopathology and their interactive effects on educational outcomes.

Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry 2021 Sep 24. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Universidade Federal Do Rio Grande Do Sul, Ramiro Barcelos, 2350 - room 2202, Porto Alegre, 90035-003, Brazil.

Psychopathology is associated with impaired learning and early termination of schooling, whereas positive attributes are associated with better educational outcomes. However, it is important to understand if and how psychopathology and positive attributes longitudinally impact each other so we could shed light on where to intervene to promote educational outcomes through these constructs. A large prospective school-based community cohort of youths (5-15 years of age, 45% female) were assessed and followed up for 3 years (n = 2010; 80% retention). Read More

Current Findings and Perspectives on Aberrant Neural Oscillations in Schizophrenia.

Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 2021 Sep 23. Epub 2021 Sep 23.

Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Charité - Universitätsmedizin, Berlin, Germany.

There is now consistent evidence that neural oscillation at low- and high-frequencies constitute an important aspect of the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Specifically, impaired rhythmic activity may underlie the deficit to generate coherent cognition and behavior, leading to the characteristic symptoms of psychosis and cognitive deficits. Importantly, the generating mechanisms of neural oscillations are relatively well-understood and thus enable the targeted search for the underlying circuit impairments and novel treatment targets.

Intergenerational effects of violence on women's perinatal wellbeing and infant health outcomes: evidence from a birth cohort study in Central Vietnam.

BMC Pregnancy Childbirth 2021 Sep 23;21(1):648. Epub 2021 Sep 23.

Institute for Community Health Research, Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Hue University, Hue, Vietnam.

Background: Girls exposed to violence have a high risk of being victimized as adults and are more likely than non-abused women to have children who are treated violently. This intergenerational transmission may be especially serious when women suffer violence during pregnancy and early motherhood, as it impairs maternal wellbeing and infant health and development. This study examined the intergenerational effects of being exposed to childhood maltreatment (CM) and prenatal intimate partner violence (p-IPV) on perinatal mental distress and birth outcomes in central Vietnam.

Nonvoluntary or Forced Sex Among Women, by Sexual Identity, Attraction, and Behavior - National Survey of Family Growth, United States, 2011-2017.

MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2021 Sep 24;70(38):1326-1331. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Nonheterosexual (sexual minority) women report experiencing more sexual violence than heterosexual (sexual majority) women (1,2). Sexual minority women are often categorized as a collective whole, which fails to capture the nuances in sexual violence among subgroups of sexual minority women, such as bisexual and lesbian women (3). To estimate the prevalence of lifetime forced vaginal intercourse (forced sex) and of nonvoluntary first vaginal intercourse among women aged 18-44 years in the United States, CDC analyzed data from female respondents who were interviewed during 2011-2017 for the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG); respondents were stratified by self-reported sexual identity, attraction, and behavior.

A window into racial and socioeconomic status disparities in preschool disciplinary action using developmental methodology.

Ann N Y Acad Sci 2021 Sep 23. Epub 2021 Sep 23.

Institute for Policy Research and Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences, Evanston, Illinois.

There are large differences in expulsions and suspensions on the basis of race starting in preschool and divergent explanations for their cause. The current study explores how developmental methodology can shed light on this vexing issue. We leverage two measures: (1) childcare provider complaints about children's behavior and their recommended disciplinary action (measured by parent report); and (2) observed disruptive behavior measured by a laboratory-based standardized observation tool, the Disruptive Behavior Diagnostic Observation Schedule (DB-DOS), among a large, sociodemographically diverse sample of children (n   430; mean age   4.

Sources of variability in the prospective relation of language to social, emotional, and behavior problem symptoms: Implications for developmental language disorder.

J Abnorm Psychol 2021 Aug;130(6):676-689

Psychology and Language Sciences.

Children with developmental language disorder (DLD) are at risk for social, emotional, and behavioral (SEB) maladjustment throughout development, though it is unclear if poor language proficiency per se can account for this risk as associations between language and SEB appear more variable among typical-language children. This study investigated whether the relationship between language and SEB problems is stronger at very low levels of language and considered confounders including socioeconomic status, sex, and nonverbal intelligence. These were examined using a population-based survey design, including children with a wide range of language and cognitive profiles, and assessed using the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire and six standardized language measures (n = 363, weighted n = 6,451).
