  • Positive psychiatry comes of age
    • Authors: Dilip V. Jeste
      Pages: 1735 - 1738
      Abstract: Positive psychiatry is the science and practice of psychiatry that focuses on psycho-bio-social study and promotion of well-being and health through enhancement of positive psychosocial factors (such as resilience, optimism, wisdom, and social support) in people with illnesses or disabilities as well as the in community at large (Jeste and Palmer, 2015). It is based on the principles that there is no health without mental health and that mental health can be improved through preventive, therapeutic, and rehabilitative interventions to augment positive psychosocial factors. Positive psychiatry is not a naïve, feel-good pseudoscience that views the world through rose-colored glasses. It is an evidence-based approach to understanding normal behavior as well as psychopathology and to improving well-being by measuring and enhancing positive psychosocial factors (Jeste et al., 2015).

  • How valuable are ecopsychosocial interventions in prevention and treatment
           of dementia'
    • Authors: Olusegun Baiyewu
      Pages: 1739 - 1740
      Abstract: Dementia is a disorder that arouses major public health interest and concern. It has been projected that there will be a global increase in the number of people affected from about 46.8million in 2018 to 131million by 2050; global cost of care for 2015 was put at US$818 billion (Prince et al., 2015). Consequently, such development will lead to tremendous social and financial cost on family and society. Currently, there is no cure for dementia and that has led to increased research activities on prevention strategies, which often has to start with a number of midlife activities. These include regular exercise, diet, treatment of cardiovascular risk factors, and social and educational stimulation through life.

  • Spirituality, health and well-being in the elderly
    • Authors: Orestes V. Forlenza; Homero Vallada
      Pages: 1741 - 1742
      Abstract: Bailly et al. (2018) examined the trajectory of spirituality in a cohort of 567 non-institutionalized older adults living in Tours, France, during a period of five years. The measurements for spirituality (Daily Spiritual Experience Scale, DES), social support (Satisfaction with Social Support subscale of the Duke Social Support Index), and accommodative tendencies (Flexible Goal Adjustment) were longitudinally collected at three time points (2007, 2009, and 2012). The results of the study confirmed some expected observations, such as higher levels of spirituality among religious older adults when compared with the ones without religion, and older women reporting higher levels of spirituality than older men. But the most interesting finding was the observation that the measured levels of spirituality among older adults remained stable during this five-year period. Based on a growing number of studies and theories of aging suggesting that the levels of spirituality increases during a person's lifetime, one would expect an increase in the levels of spirituality along the study follow-up. The authors, however, interpreted the stable level of spirituality informed by the participants as having already reached a relatively high mean rating score of spirituality at baseline. From the beginning of the trail, many participants expressed self-contentment and reported having found meaning in their lives. Moreover, the responders had, in general, more years of education than expected for people in their age group, lived at home independently with a good self-health evaluation, had relatively fewer diseases, and a good perception of financial satisfaction; these characteristics perhaps make this group not representative of the French general population in the same age bracket.

  • Spirituality, social support, and flexibility among older adults: a
           five-year longitudinal study
    • Authors: Nathalie Bailly; Guillaume Martinent, Claude Ferrand, Océane Agli, Caroline Giraudeau, Kamel Gana, Nicolas Roussiau
      Pages: 1745 - 1752
      Abstract: Objectives:The objectives of the study were to examine the trajectory of spirituality among older adults, to investigate the roles of gender and religion on the developmental trajectory of spirituality, and to explore whether the linear growth of spirituality accelerated or decelerated at time points at which the participants reported high scores of social support and flexibility.Design:A five-year longitudinal study.Setting:The research used data from a longitudinal study, which follows a non-institutionalized older adults cohort of residents from France. The data used in this paper were collected at three time points (T1: 2007; T2: 2009; T3: 2012).Participants:A total of 567 participants were included in the analysis (59.44% female; Mage = 75.90, SD = 5.12).Measurements:Multilevel growth curve analysis was used measuring spirituality, satisfaction with social support, and flexibility.Results:The results indicated the following: (1) stability of spirituality over time, (2) older women reported higher levels of spirituality than older men, and those who had a religion reported higher scores of spirituality than their counterparts who had no religion (these effects were strong and clinically meaningful), (3) older adults who reported higher levels of social support and flexibility also reported higher levels of spirituality, and (4) the slope of spirituality seemed to accelerate at time points at which participants also had higher levels of social support and flexibility (these effects were rather small but of theoretical interest).Conclusion:The results of the present study help to improve the understanding of the potential benefit of encouraging the spiritual aspects of life.

  • The relation of close friends to cognitive performance in old age: the
           mediating role of leisure activities
    • Authors: Andreas Ihle; Michel Oris, Marie Baeriswyl, Matthias Kliegel
      Pages: 1753 - 1758
      Abstract: Background:From a conceptual point of view, close friends are an important resource for promoting activity engagement in old age. Leisure activity engagement in turn is a key predictor of cognitive performance. Empirically, it remains unclear so far whether leisure activity engagement mediates between having close friends on the one hand and cognitive performance on the other, which we investigated in a large sample of older adults.Methods:We assessed cognitive performance (Mill Hill vocabulary scale and Trail Making Test (TMT) parts A and B) in 2,812 older adults. Participants reported information on leisure activity engagement and close friends.Results:A larger number of leisure activities and a larger number of close friends were significantly related to better cognitive performance in the Mill Hill vocabulary scale and TMT parts A and B. A larger number of close friends were significantly related to a larger number of leisure activities. The number of leisure activities mediated more than half of the relation of the number of close friends to performance in all three cognitive measures.Conclusions:Having close friends may be helpful to stimulate and promote activity participation in old age. By enhancing individuals’ cognitive reserve, this may finally preserve their cognitive performance level in old age.

  • Reflections on wisdom at the end of life: qualitative study of hospice
           patients aged 58–97 years
    • Authors: Lori P. Montross-Thomas; Jamie Joseph, Emily C. Edmonds, Lawrence A. Palinkas, Dilip V. Jeste
      Pages: 1759 - 1766
      Abstract: Objective:Wisdom is a complex trait, and previous research has identified several components of wisdom. This study explored the possible impact of a diagnosis of a terminal illness on the conceptualization and evolution of wisdom while facing the end of life.Design and Participants:Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with 21 hospice patients aged 58–97 years who were in the last six months of their life.Methods:Hospice patients were asked to describe the core characteristics of wisdom, as well as how their terminal illness might have impacted their understanding of this concept. The interviews were audiotaped, transcribed, and coded by the research team using a grounded theory analytic approach based on coding consensus, co-occurrence, and comparison.Results:Broad concepts of wisdom described by the hospice patients align with the extant literature, thereby supporting those general conceptualizations. In addition, hospice patients described how their life perspectives shifted after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. Post-illness wisdom can be characterized as a dynamic balance of actively accepting the situation while simultaneously striving for galvanized growth. This delicate tension motivated the patients to live each day fully, yet consciously plan for their final legacy.Conclusion:The end of life offers a unique perspective on wisdom by highlighting the modulation between actively accepting the current situation while continuing the desire to grow and change at this critical time. This paradox, when embraced, may lead to even greater wisdom while facing one's own mortality.

  • Strategies employed by older people to manage loneliness: systematic
           review of qualitative studies and model development
    • Authors: Kalpa Kharicha; Jill Manthorpe, Steve Iliffe, Nathan Davies, Kate Walters
      Pages: 1767 - 1781
      Abstract: Objectives:To (i) systematically identify and review strategies employed by community dwelling lonely older people to manage their loneliness and (ii) develop a model for managing loneliness.Methods:A narrative synthesis review of English-language qualitative evidence, following Economic and Social Research Council guidance. Seven electronic databases were searched (1990–January 2017). The narrative synthesis included tabulation, thematic analysis, and conceptual model development. All co-authors assessed eligibility of final papers and reached a consensus on analytic themes.Results:From 3,043 records, 11 studies were eligible including a total of 502 older people. Strategies employed to manage loneliness can be described by a model with two overarching dimensions, one related to the context of coping (alone or with/in reference to others), the other related to strategy type (prevention/action or acceptance/endurance of loneliness). The dynamic and subjective nature of loneliness is reflected in the variety of coping mechanisms, drawing on individual coping styles and highlighting considerable efforts in managing time, contacting others, and keeping loneliness hidden. Cognitive strategies were used to re-frame negative feelings, to make them more manageable or to shift the focus from the present or themselves. Few unsuccessful strategies were described.Conclusion:Strategies to manage loneliness vary from prevention/action through to acceptance and endurance. There are distinct preferences to cope alone or involve others; only those in the latter category are likely to engage with services and social activities. Older people who deal with their loneliness privately may find it difficult to articulate an inability to cope.

  • Remote delivery of psychological interventions for Parkinson's disease
    • Authors: Caitlin Swalwell; Nancy A. Pachana, Nadeeka N. Dissanayaka
      Pages: 1783 - 1795
      Abstract: Objective:Over two-thirds of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients experience comorbid neuropsychiatric symptoms, which adversely impact their quality of life and often require intervention. There is a preference for non-pharmacological, psychological approaches in addressing these symptoms. Given mobility limitations, travel burden, and cost, accessibility to psychological treatment can be problematic in this population. There has been a recent shift toward delivering care via telehealth in PD. Accordingly, this review aimed to examine remotely delivered psychological interventions for PD patients.Results:Most of the telehealth studies for PD involved Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based anxiety and depression telephone interventions with relatively short (one month) follow-up periods.Conclusion:Although a preliminary work indicates efficacy, future studies should demonstrate the non-inferiority of these telehealth programs compared to face-to-face delivery, and examine the long-term outcomes of remotely delivered therapy. Video-conferencing (VC) appears to be a promising modality to overcome noted limitations of telephone delivery, and has demonstrated efficacy for PD speech programs. Further research should be conducted evaluating telehealth VC modalities for delivery of psychotherapy including CBT, as well as mindfulness-based therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy for remote treatment of depression and anxiety in PD.

  • Life story books for people with dementia: a systematic review
    • Authors: Teuntje R. Elfrink; Sytse U. Zuidema, Miriam Kunz, Gerben J. Westerhof
      Pages: 1797 - 1811
      Abstract: Objectives:There is an increasing evidence that reminiscence therapy is effective in improving cognitive functions and reducing depressive symptoms in people with dementia. Life story books (LSBs) are frequently used as a reminiscence tool to support recollecting autobiographical memories. As little is known about how LSBs are used and what type of studies have been employed to evaluate LSB interventions, we conducted a systematic review.Methods:The electronic databases Scopus, PubMed, and PsychINFO as well as reference lists of existing studies were searched to select eligible articles. Out of the 55 studies found, 14 met the inclusion criterion of an original empirical study on LSBs in people with dementia.Results:The majority of the LSBs were tangible books, although some digital applications were also found. The LSBs were created mostly in individual sessions in nursing homes with a median of six sessions. Some studies only focused on the person with dementia, while others also examined (in)formal caregivers. Most studies used qualitative interviews, case studies, and/or (pilot) randomized controlled trial (RCTs) with small sample sizes. Qualitative findings showed the value of LSBs in triggering memories and in improving the relation with the person with dementia. Quantitative effects were found on, e.g. autobiographical memory and depression of persons with dementia, quality of relationship with informal caregivers, burden of informal caregivers, and on attitudes and knowledge of formal caregivers.Conclusions:This systematic review confirms that the use of LSBs to support reminiscence and person-centered care is promising, but larger RCTs or implementation studies are needed to establish the effects of LSBs on people with dementia.

  • Neurobiological findings associated with high cognitive performance in
           older adults: a systematic review
    • Authors: Wyllians Vendramini Borelli; Lucas Porcello Schilling, Graciane Radaelli, Luciana Borges Ferreira, Leonardo Pisani, Mirna Wetters Portuguez, Jaderson Costa da Costa
      Pages: 1813 - 1825
      Abstract: Objectives:to perform a comprehensive literature review of studies on older adults with exceptional cognitive performance.Design:We performed a systematic review using two major databases (MEDLINE and Web of Science) from January 2002 to November 2017.Results:Quantitative analysis included nine of 4,457 studies and revealed that high-performing older adults have global preservation of the cortex, especially the anterior cingulate region, and hippocampal volumes larger than normal agers. Histological analysis of this group also exhibited decreased amyloid burden and neurofibrillary tangles compared to cognitively normal older controls. High performers that maintained memory ability after three years showed reduced amyloid positron emission tomography at baseline compared with high performers that declined. A single study on blood plasma found a set of 12 metabolites predicting memory maintenance of this group.Conclusion:Structural and molecular brain preservation of older adults with high cognitive performance may be associated with brain maintenance. The operationalized definition of high-performing older adults must be carefully addressed using appropriate age cut-off and cognitive evaluation, including memory and non-memory tests. Further studies with a longitudinal approach that include a younger control group are essential.

  • Cardiovascular health and cognitive function among Mexican older adults:
           cross-sectional results from the WHO Study on Global Ageing and Adult
           Health
    • Authors: Jaime Perales; Ladson Hinton, Jeffrey Burns, Eric D. Vidoni
      Pages: 1827 - 1836
      Abstract: Objectives:To assess the association between cardiovascular health and cognitive function among Mexican older adults.Design:Nationally representative cross-sectional survey.Setting:Households in Mexico.Participants:Individuals aged 50 years and older (n = 1,492) from the Mexico-SAGE project Wave 1.Measurements:A continuous and a categorical index of cardiovascular health was calculated based on exercise, smoking, body mass index, and blood pressure ranging from 0 to 4. Cognitive function was obtained by averaging the standardized scores (z scores) of five psychometric tests. Associations were conducted using linear regression.Results:The continuous index of cardiovascular health was not associated with cognitive function. Using the categorical index, participants with the best levels of cardiovascular (score of 4) health performed better on global cognitive function than groups with lower cardiovascular health (scores of 0, 0.41 SD; 1, 0.39 SD; and 2, 0.56 SD). The association was moderated by age, reaching significance only among those 50–64 years old.Conclusions:If longitudinal research confirms these findings, results would suggest that dementia-related policies in Mexico need to focus on achieving optimal levels of cardiovascular health, especially in midlife.

  • Convergent and concurrent validity of a report- versus performance-based
           evaluation of everyday functioning in the diagnosis of cognitive disorders
           in a geriatric population
    • Authors: Elise Cornelis; Ellen Gorus, Karen Van Weverbergh, Ingo Beyer, Patricia De Vriendt
      Pages: 1837 - 1848
      Abstract: Background:Several methods have been developed to evaluate activities of daily living (ADLs) in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild dementia. This study evaluated the convergent and concurrent validity between (1) two report-based methods (the advanced (a)- and instrumental (i)-ADL tools) and (2) a performance-based method (the Naturalistic Action Test (NAT)) to check if their ability to differentiate between cognitively healthy comparisons (HCs), persons with MCI, and persons with mild Alzheimer's disease (AD) are comparable to each other.Method:This was a cross-sectional study, undertaken in a geriatric day hospital. The participants comprised community-dwelling HCs (n = 21, median age 78.0 years, 61.9% female), MCI (n = 20, median age 79.5 years, 55.0% female), and AD (n = 20, median age 80.0 years, 85.0% female) adults. A diagnostic procedure for neurocognitive disorders was employed. In addition, the a- and i-ADL tools and the NAT were administered separately by blinded raters.Results:The NAT and both the a- and i-ADL tools showed significant differences between HCs, MCI, and AD participants. Convergent validity showed moderate to strong significant correlations between the NAT, and a- and i-ADL tools (range −0.583 to −0.663; p < 0.01). Concurrent validity showed that the NAT (AUC 0.809–1.000) and the a- and i-ADL tools (AUC 0.739–0.964) presented comparable discriminatory accuracy (p = 0.0588).Conclusions:In contrast to prior studies comparing report-based and performance-based methods of assessing ADL, this study indicates that the NAT and the a- and i-ADL tools have strong convergent and concurrent validity, and appear to have similar discriminatory power in differentiating between HCs, MCI, and AD.

  • The unmet support needs of carers of older Australians: prevalence and
           mental health
    • Authors: Jeromey B. Temple; Briony Dow
      Pages: 1849 - 1860
      Abstract: Background:Population aging places greater demands on the supply of informal carers. The aims of this study were to examine (1) the types of unmet support needs of carers of older Australians and (2) the association of unmet needs with mental health.Methods:Utilizing new data from the 2015 Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers, we calculated the prevalence of carers experiencing specific and multiple unmet needs for support, using single and multiple item measures. Logistic regression models were fitted to examine the association between unmet needs and psychological distress (using the Kessler psychological distress scale), once demographic and health factors were controlled for.Results:In 2015, 35% of carers of older Australians cited at least one unmet need for support. Among this group, almost two-thirds cited multiple unmet support needs (64.7%). The most prevalent types of unmet needs included financial (18%), physical (13%), and emotional support (12%), as well as additional respite care and support to improve carer health (12%). After controlling for demographic and health characteristics of the carer, having any unmet need for support increased the odds of psychological distress by twofold (OR = 2.20, 95% CI = 1.65, 2.94). With each successive unmet need for support, the odds of psychological distress increased 1.37 times (OR = 1.36, 95% CI = 1.22, 1.54). Those who had received assistance with care, but required further support were 1.95 times more likely (OR = 1.95, 95% CI = 1.17, 3.24) to be in distress and those who had not received care assistance were about 2.4 times more likely (OR = 2.38 95% OR = 1.56, 3.62) to be in distress relative to those with no unmet need.Conclusions:Addressing unmet support needs of carers is important, not only for the planning of services for carers in an aging population, but also because of the association between unmet support needs and carers mental health.

  • The effects of gender, age, schooling, and cultural background on the
           identification of facial emotions: a transcultural study
    • Authors: Leonardo Cruz de Souza; Maxime Bertoux, Ângelo Ribeiro Vaz de Faria, Laiane Tábata Souza Corgosinho, Ana Carolina de Almeida Prado, Izabela Guimarães Barbosa, Paulo Caramelli, Enrico Colosimo, Antônio Lúcio Teixeira
      Pages: 1861 - 1870
      Abstract: Background:Social cognition tasks, such as identification of emotions, can contribute to the diagnosis of neuropsychiatric disorders. The wide use of Facial Emotion Recognition Test (FERT) is hampered by the absence of normative dataset and by the limited understanding of how demographic factors such as age, education, gender, and cultural background may influence the performance on the test.Methods:We analyzed the influence of these variables in the performance in the FERT from the short version of the Social and Emotional Assessment. This task is composed by 35 pictures with 7 different emotions presented 5 times each. Cognitively healthy Brazilian participants (n = 203; 109 females and 94 males) underwent the FERT. We compared the performance of participants across gender, age, and educational subgroups. We also compared the performance of Brazilians with a group of French subjects (n = 60) matched for gender, age, and educational level.Results:There was no gender difference regarding the performance on total score and in each emotion subscore in the Brazilian sample. We found a significant effect of aging and schooling on the performance on the FERT, with younger and more educated subjects having higher scores. Brazilian and French participants did not differ in the FERT and its subscores. Normative data for employing the FERT in Brazilian population is presented.Conclusions:Data here provided may contribute to the interpretation of the results of FERT in different cultural contexts and highlight the common bias that should be corrected in the future tasks to be developed.

  • Neuropsychological correlates of instrumental activities of daily living
           in neurocognitive disorders: a possible role for executive dysfunction and
           mood changes
    • Authors: Martina Amanzio; Sara Palermo, Milena Zucca, Rosalba Rosato, Elisa Rubino, Daniela Leotta, Massimo Bartoli, Innocenzo Rainero
      Pages: 1871 - 1881
      Abstract: Since baseline executive dysfunction predicts worsening Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (i-ADL) over time and progression to Alzheimer's Disease (AD), we aimed to analyze the role of neuropsychological variables to outline which factors can contribute to functional impairment. Specific attention to executive functions (EFs) has been given.A total of 144 subjects complaining of different cognitive deficits – ranging from “MCI likely due to AD” to “mild AD patients” – underwent an overall neuropsychological assessment. The Behavioral Assessment of the Dysexecutive Syndrome was used to analyze EFs. We conducted multiple linear regression analyses to study whether the level of independent living skills – assessed with the Lawton-scale – could be associated with cognitive and behavioral measurements.We found a significant association between i-ADL and specific EFs measured by Rule Shift Cards (p = 0.04) and Modified Six Elements (p = 0.02). Moreover, considering i-ADL scores, we observed an involvement of mood changes and a reduced awareness of deficits in terms of Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (p = 0.02) and Awareness of Deficit Questionnaire – Dementia scale (p < 0.0001), respectively.Our results suggest the importance of considering the association between a reduction in i-ADL and executive dysfunction in patients who have AD etiopathology, for which the ability to inhibit a response, self-monitoring, set-shifting and mood deflection play a key role. Besides, no straightforward associations between i-ADL scores and global cognition, memory, language comprehension, attention, and perspective taking abilities were found.

  • The recency ratio as predictor of early MCI
    • Authors: Davide Bruno; Rebecca L. Koscik, John L. Woodard, Nunzio Pomara, Sterling C. Johnson
      Pages: 1883 - 1888
      Abstract: Objectives:Individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) present poor immediate primacy recall accompanied by intact or exaggerated recency, which then tends to decline after a delay. Bruno et al. (Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, Vol. 38, 2016, pp. 967–973) have shown that higher ratio scores between immediate and delayed recency (i.e. the recency ratio; Rr) are associated with cognitive decline in high-functioning older individuals. We tested whether Rr predicted conversion to early mild cognitive impairment (early MCI) from a cognitively healthy baseline.Design:Data were analyzed longitudinally with binomial regression. Baseline scores were used to predict conversion to early MCI after approximately nine years. Setting: Data were collected at the Wisconsin Registry of Alzheimer's Prevention, in Madison, Wisconsin.Participants:For the study, 427 individuals were included in the analysis; all participants were 50 years of age or older and cognitively intact at baseline, and were native English speakers.Measurements:Memory data were collected using the Rey's Auditory Verbal Learning Test, and the early MCI diagnosis was obtained via consensus conference.Results:Our results showed that higher Rr scores are correlated with greater risk of later early MCI diagnosis, and this association is independent of total recall performance.Conclusions:Rr is an emerging cognitive marker of cognitive decline.

  • Impact of brief education on healthy seniors’ attitudes and healthcare
           choices about Alzheimer's disease and associated symptoms
    • Authors: Robyn E. Waxman; Barbara J. Russell, Oscar C. T. Iu, Benoit H. Mulsant
      Pages: 1889 - 1897
      Abstract: Objective:The primary objective of this study was to determine whether a brief education session about Alzheimer's disease (AD) stages and associated behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) changes healthy seniors’ treatment choices. A secondary objective was to determine whether pharmacotherapy to reduce BPSD would be preferred over other potentially more restrictive interventions.Methods:Participants (n = 32; 8 men; aged > 64years; no self-reported dementia diagnosis) were assigned to one of ten group sessions during which they received information about AD and BPSD. Our a-priori hypotheses were: (1) education about AD stages significantly changes care preferences in moderate and severe stages, i.e. less active treatment options (no CPR/hospitalization) are chosen as the disease progresses; and (2) most participants prefer pharmacotherapy over restraints and seclusion to manage BPSD. The main outcome measure was a change in the interventions chosen including CPR and hospitalization. Participants completed three questionnaires and two decisional grids before and after the information session. Qualitative data were derived from discussions during the session.Results:Participants expressed a wide range of attitudes about AD, BPSD, and their management. Those who are born in Canada, had a proxy, and a university education, each have around half of the odds of receiving treatment compared to those in the complementary group. (OR 0.47, 0.40, 0.43) Finally, not knowing someone with AD increases the odds of wanting a treatment by around six times (OR 6.4). Pharmacological measures were preferred over restraints.Conclusions:Education about dementia and advance directives should consider the person's educational background and experience with dementia. Discussing BPSD may impact a person's advance directives and preferences.

  • Introducing a family intervention to elderly with first episode psychosis
    • Authors: Tuula Saarela; Monica Johansson, Ullamarja Louhija, Björn Appelberg, Kati Juva
      Pages: 1899 - 1900
      Abstract: Schizophrenia guidelines list family interventions as an efficient means in reducing relapses. Interventions aim to help families cope with their relative's problems more effectively, provide support and education, and reduce levels of distress and improve the family communication (see deHaan et al., 2002).
