Cultur Divers Ethnic Minor Psychol 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

STAR: Stress, Anxiety & Resilience Consultants.

Racial and ethnic minority women from low-resource urban communities experience disproportionately high rates of trauma exposure. Higher rates of lifetime trauma exposure are strongly associated with subsequent psychological sequela, specifically depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Communal mastery is the ability to cope with challenges and achieve goals by being closely interconnected with friends, family, and significant others. Read More

Shame as a Mediator in the Association Between Emotion Dysregulation and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptom Reductions Among Combat Veterans in a Residential Treatment Program.

J Trauma Stress 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Coatesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA.

Emotion dysregulation (ED) can be defined as one's inability to effectively respond to and manage internal experiences and the expression of emotion. ED has been linked to the development and maintenance of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), with recent research suggesting that reductions in ED may predict improved treatment outcomes among both civilian and veteran populations. However, few studies have examined how changes in ED may predict treatment outcomes among veterans with PTSD and whether certain core features of PTSD, such as shame, may act as potential mediators in the association between ED and PTSD symptom reductions.

Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study Findings Associated With Subsequent Pneumonia in Patients With Dysphagia Due to Frailty.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 5;8:690968. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, College of Medicine, Yeungnam University, Daegu, South Korea.

Dysphagia in frailty or deconditioning without specific diagnosis that may cause dysphagia such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or laryngeal pathology, has been reported in previous studies; however, little is known about which findings of the videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS) are associated with subsequent pneumonia and how many patients actually develop subsequent pneumonia in this population. In this study, we followed 190 patients with dysphagia due to frailty or deconditioning without specific diagnosis that may cause dysphagia for 3 months after VFSS and analyzed VFSS findings for the risk of developing pneumonia. During the study period, the incidence of subsequent pneumonia was 24. Read More

As Time Goes by: Understanding Child and Family Factors Shaping Behavioral Outcomes After Traumatic Brain Injury.

Front Neurol 2021 5;12:687740. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Critical Care, School of Medicine, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, United States.

To model pre-injury child and family factors associated with the trajectory of internalizing and externalizing behavior problems across the first 3 years in children with pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) relative to children with orthopedic injuries (OI).

The relationship between knee radiographs and the timing of physical therapy in individuals with patellofemoral pain.

PM R 2021 Jul 20. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Discipline of Physiotherapy, School of Health Sciences, The University of Newcastle, University Dr., Callaghan, NSW, Australia.

Background: Routine knee radiographs are discouraged for individuals with non-traumatic knee pain, but they are often still ordered despite limited evidence for their value in guiding treatment choices. Radiograph utilization may delay the use of physical therapy, which has been associated with improved outcomes and lower long-term costs.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms and Coping Motives are Independently Associated with Cannabis Craving Elicited by Trauma Cues.

J Trauma Stress 2021 Jul 19. Epub 2021 Jul 19.

Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Cannabis use is common among individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), although its use can ultimately worsen PTSD outcomes. Cannabis-use coping motives may help explain the PTSD-cannabis relationship. Frequent pairing of trauma cues with substance use to cope with negative affect can lead to conditioned substance craving.

Articular cartilage thickness changes differ between males and females four years following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

J Orthop Res 2021 Jul 20. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Univ of Vermont.

Anterior cruciate ligament injury and reconstruction (ACLR) affects articular cartilage thickness profiles about the tibial, femoral, and patellar surfaces; however, it's unclear whether the magnitudes of change in cartilage thickness, as well as the locations and areas over which these changes occur, differ between males and females. This is important to consider as differences exist between the sexes with regard to knee biomechanics, patellofemoral pain, and anatomic alignment, which influence risk of an index and repeated injury. Subjects underwent ACLR with a bone-patella tendon-bone autograft. Read More

Is neuroticism really bad for you? Dynamics in personality and limbic reactivity prior to, during and following real-life combat stress.

Neurobiol Stress 2021 Nov 28;15:100361. Epub 2021 Jun 28.

School of Psychological Sciences, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel.

The personality trait of neuroticism is considered a risk factor for stress vulnerability, putatively via its association with elevated limbic reactivity. Nevertheless, majority of evidence to date that relates neuroticism, neural reactivity and stress vulnerability stems from cross-sectional studies conducted in a "stress-free" environment. Here, using a unique prospective longitudinal design, we assessed personality, stress-related symptoms and neural reactivity at three time points over the course of four and a half years; accounting for prior to, during, and long-time following a stressful military service that included active combat.

Exposure to Domestic Violence During the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Potent Threat to the Mental Well-being of Children.

Woi Hon Boo

Malays J Med Sci 2021 Jun 30;28(3):158-159. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Ampang Baru Community Clinic, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

The unprecedented scale of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has indeed brought about tremendous ramifications on the state of mental health for children. One notable aspect deserving emphasis however, is the psychological impact in children as a result of the purported surge of domestic violence (DV) in many of the countries that imposed stay-at-home requirement. The imposition of movement restriction policy led to isolation and overcrowding, made worse by loss of income in some instances, causing high levels of stress and anxiety, thereby increasing the risk of DV and child abuse particularly those already living within violent or dysfunctional families.
