  • Childhood Psychological Distress and Healthy Cardiovascular Lifestyle
           17–35 Years Later: The Potential Role of Mental Health in Primordial
    • Authors: Winning A; McCormick M, Glymour M, et al.
      Pages: 621 - 632
      Abstract: BackgroundMaintaining a healthy lifestyle in adulthood has been shown to significantly reduce cardiovascular disease risk. Increasing evidence suggests that behavioral risk factors for cardiovascular disease are established in childhood; however, limited research has evaluated whether childhood psychological factors play a role.PurposeTo evaluate the association between childhood psychological distress and young to mid adulthood healthy lifestyle.MethodsUsing prospective data from the 1958 British Birth Cohort, we assessed whether psychological distress in childhood (captured by internalizing and externalizing symptoms at ages 7, 11, and 16 years) predicted healthy lifestyle at ages 33 (N = 10,748) and 42 (N = 9,581) years. Healthy lifestyle was measured using an index previously demonstrated to predict cardiovascular disease, consisting of five components: absence of smoking, moderate alcohol consumption, regular physical activity, healthy diet, and ideal body weight.ResultsFew participants (3.8% at age 33 years and 2.8% at age 42 years) endorsed all five healthy lifestyle components. Linear regression models, adjusting for potential child- and family-level confounders, revealed that higher distress levels in childhood were negatively associated with healthy lifestyle at age 33 years (β = −0.11, SE = 0.01, p < .001) and 42 years (β = −0.13, SE = 0.01, p < .001). Higher distress was also associated with significantly lower odds of endorsing each lifestyle component, except physical activity, at both ages. Additional analyses indicated that childhood distress levels were highest among those whose lifestyle scores were low at age 33 and further declined between ages 33 and 42.ConclusionsPsychological distress in childhood may indicate children at risk of less healthy lifestyle practices later in life. Although our findings are preliminary, psychological distress may also provide an important target for public health interventions aimed at preventing cardiovascular disease.

  • Integrating Self-Affirmation and Implementation Intentions: Effects on
           College Student Drinking
    • Authors: Ehret P; Sherman D.
      Pages: 633 - 644
      Abstract: BackgroundHigh levels of alcohol consumption are an enduring health risk among college students. Integrating multiple, complementary behavior change theories may offer a promising approach to promote reductions in alcohol consumption.PurposeThe current study tested if integrating self-affirmation and implementation intentions would be more effective than a self-affirmation only, implementation intentions only, or control condition at reducing alcohol consumption in college students over a 2-week period.MethodTwo hundred and ninety-three college students who reported drinking in the past month were randomly assigned to a condition in a 2 (self-affirmation: values vs. control writing task) × 2 (implementation intentions: formed vs. not formed) between-subjects factorial design. Participants first completed a self-affirmation or control writing task, then read an article describing the risks of drinking. Next, all participants reported their common drinking behaviors and contexts, and then selected two harm-reduction strategies forming (or not forming) implementation intentions to use the strategies. Alcohol consumption was measured 1 and 2 weeks after the experiment.ResultsParticipants in the integrated self-affirmation and implementation intention condition were most likely to abstain from drinking 1 week later. Affirmed participants continued to be more likely to abstain from drinking 2 weeks later.ConclusionsThe findings support the efficacy of integrating self-affirmation and implementation intentions to reduce college student drinking ( number NCT02926794).

  • The Effects of Exercise on Physical and Psychological Outcomes in Cancer
           Caregivers: Results From the RECHARGE Randomized Controlled Trial
    • Authors: Cuthbert C; King-Shier K, Ruether J, et al.
      Pages: 645 - 661
      Abstract: BackgroundFamily caregivers to cancer patients are at risk for physical and psychological morbidity as a direct result of being in the caregiver role. Exercise as an intervention to support caregiver health and well-being has been tested in other caregiver populations; however, no randomized controlled trials testing the effects of an aerobic and resistance training program have been conducted where cancer caregivers only have participated.PurposeTo examine the effects of a 12-week exercise program on quality of life (Short Form 36 v2), psychological outcomes, physical activity levels, and physical fitness in caregivers to cancer patients.MethodsSeventy-seven caregivers were randomized to either an exercise intervention or wait-list control. Two participants in the exercise arm dropped out immediately after their baseline assessment. Outcome data for n = 77 participants were analyzed using intention-to-treat analysis with linear mixed models.ResultsSignificant group by time interaction effects were detected for exercise on the mental health component score of quality of life, self-reported weekly exercise levels, and the six-minute walk test. Small to medium effect sizes were detected on several outcomes including physical health component of quality of life (d = 0.36), mental health component of quality of life (d = 0.74), depression (d = 0.41), anxiety (d = 0.35), physical activity levels (d = 0.80), and the six-minute walk test (d = 0.21).ConclusionsThe findings suggest that exercise may improve health and well-being and could be considered as an additional type of support offered to cancer caregivers.Clinical trial registration noNCT02580461.

  • To Know Another’s Pain: A Meta-analysis of Caregivers’ and Healthcare
           Providers’ Pain Assessment Accuracy
    • Authors: Ruben M; Blanch-Hartigan D, Shipherd J.
      Pages: 662 - 685
      Abstract: BackgroundAcute and chronic pain affects millions of adults yet it is often inadequately assessed and treated.PurposeThe purpose of the present meta-analysis was to examine the overall level of pain assessment accuracy among caregivers and providers and identify patient, observer, and assessment level factors that moderate pain assessment accuracy.MethodsA systematic literature search was conducted in PubMed and PsycINFO to identify studies addressing providers’ pain assessment accuracy, or studies that compared patients’ self-report of pain with observers’ (healthcare providers, caregivers, and strangers) assessment of pain. We present two separate meta-analyses examining the overall effect of under-/overestimation of pain and correlational pain assessment accuracy.ResultsSeventy-six articles meeting inclusion criteria yielded 94 independent effect sizes for the correlational accuracy meta-analysis. Ninety articles yielded 103 independent effect sizes for the paired comparison meta-analysis. The correlational pain assessment meta-analysis showed that in general, observers were significantly better than chance when assessing pain; however, the paired comparison meta-analysis showed that observers significantly underestimated patients’ pain. Patient’s age and gender, pain type, and provider type moderated these effects.ConclusionsResults suggest that certain healthcare providers and caregivers need training to more accurately assess patient pain and that there are particular groups of patients who may be at a greater risk for having their pain inaccurately assessed.

  • Integrated Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Improves Illness
           Intrusiveness in Veterans With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
    • Authors: Renn B; Hundt N, Sansgiry S, et al.
      Pages: 686 - 696
      Abstract: BackgroundProgressive illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) impart a high level of physical and psychological burden. Evidence-based psychotherapies hold the potential to improve perceptions of physical health impairment, yet few studies have documented these effects.PurposeTo evaluate the effect of brief cognitive behavioral therapy (bCBT) on disease-related illness intrusiveness.MethodsParticipants were 175 Veterans with COPD and clinically elevated symptoms of depression and/or anxiety enrolled in a larger randomized trial (n = 99 randomized to bCBT, n = 76 to enhanced usual care; EUC). bCBT included up to six treatment sessions and optional booster sessions over a 4-month period. EUC entailed an assessment with documentation in the medical record. Primary outcomes focused on posttreatment changes on the Illness Intrusiveness Rating Scale (IIRS), an established measure of perceived impairment from a chronic health condition.ResultsIllness intrusiveness improved for bCBT participants relative to EUC, after controlling for baseline IIRS scores, depression, and anxiety (p = .03, partial η2 = .03). Specific improvement was observed in the Instrumental subscale (p = .02), encompassing improved intrusiveness of COPD on daily activities and daily functioning. IIRS scores improved in the absence of changes in physical functioning.ConclusionsIllness intrusiveness was high among Veterans with COPD but improved over the course of bCBT. Integrated behavioral health interventions hold the potential to reduce disease intrusiveness. The IIRS may be a valuable tool to augment traditional assessment and measurement-based care approaches of behavioral health interventions for medically ill patients.

  • Maladaptive Personality Traits and 10-Year Course of Psychiatric and
           Medical Symptoms and Functional Impairment Following Trauma
    • Authors: Waszczuk M; Li K, Ruggero C, et al.
      Pages: 697 - 712
      Abstract: BackgroundPersonality is a major predictor of many mental and physical disorders, but its contributions to illness course are understudied.PurposeThe current study aimed to explore whether personality is associated with a course of psychiatric and medical illness over 10 years following trauma.MethodsWorld Trade Center (WTC) responders (N = 532) completed the personality inventory for DSM-5, which measures both broad domains and narrow facets. Responders’ mental and physical health was assessed in the decade following the WTC disaster during annual monitoring visits at a WTC Health Program clinic. Multilevel modeling was used in an exploratory manner to chart the course of health and functioning, and examine associations of maladaptive personality domains and facets with intercepts (initial illness) and slopes (course) of illness trajectories.ResultsThree maladaptive personality domains—negative affectivity, detachment and psychoticism—were uniquely associated with initial posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); detachment and psychoticism were also associated with initial functional impairment. Five facets—emotional lability, anhedonia, callousness, distractibility and perceptual dysregulation—were uniquely associated with initial mental and physical health and functional impairment. Anxiousness and depressivity facets were associated with worse initial levels of psychiatric outcomes only. With regard to illness trajectory, callousness and perceptual dysregulation were associated with the increase in PTSD symptoms. Anxiousness was associated with greater persistence of respiratory symptoms.ConclusionsSeveral personality domains and facets were associated with initial levels and long-term course of illness and functional impairment in a traumatized population. Results inform the role of maladaptive personality in the development and maintenance of chronic mental-physical comorbidity. Personality might constitute a transdiagnostic prognostic and treatment target.

  • Global Versus Momentary Osteoarthritis Pain and Emotional Distress:
           Emotional Intelligence as Moderator
    • Authors: Parmelee P; Scicolone M, Cox B, et al.
      Pages: 713 - 723
      Abstract: BackgroundPain and emotional well-being are complexly associated both globally and in the moment. Emotional regulation strategies may contribute to that complexity by shaping the pain–well-being association.PurposeUsing emotional intelligence (EI) as an integrative conceptual framework, this study probed the role of emotional regulation in the associations of osteoarthritis pain with emotional well-being in varying time frames. Perceived attention to, clarity, and regulation of emotions were examined as predictors of well-being, and as moderators of the well-being–pain association, at global and momentary (within-day) levels.MethodsIn a microlongitudinal study, 218 older adults with physician-diagnosed knee osteoarthritis self-reported global pain, depressive symptoms, and EI (mood attention, clarity, and repair). Momentary pain and positive and negative affect were then assessed four times daily for 7 days. EI subscales were examined as moderators of the pain–well-being association at global and momentary levels, controlling demographics and general health.ResultsGlobal and momentary pain were positively associated with mood clarity and negatively with attention, but not with repair. Clarity and repair negatively predicted depression, and buffered effects of pain on depression. Momentary negative affect was negatively predicted by mood clarity and repair; again, clarity and mood repair buffered effects of momentary pain on negative affect. Only mood repair predicted positive affect, with no interactions emerging.ConclusionsAttention to mood states exacerbates the experience of pain in both short and long terms. In contrast, both mood clarity and ability to repair moods appear important to both momentary and longer-term emotional well-being.

  • Sense of Purpose Moderates the Associations Between Daily Stressors and
           Daily Well-being
    • Authors: Hill P; Sin N, Turiano N, et al.
      Pages: 724 - 729
      Abstract: BackgroundHaving a sense of purpose in life has been consistently demonstrated as a predictor of positive health outcomes, including less perceived stress, yet, little is known about the role of sense of purpose on stressful days.PurposeThe current study investigated the sense of purpose as a moderator of stressor-related changes in daily physical symptoms, positive affect, and negative affect.MethodsA subset of the Midlife in the United States study (n = 1949, mage: 56.4 years) reported their sense of purpose, along with up to eight daily assessments of stressors, affect, and physical symptoms. Multilevel models evaluated whether sense of purpose was associated with deviations in affect or physical symptom reporting on days when participants reported a stressor versus days when stressors did not occur.ResultsSense of purpose was associated with higher daily positive affect, lower daily negative affect, and fewer daily physical symptoms. Compared with individuals who reported lower levels of purpose, those reporting higher levels encountered the same number of daily stressors, yet showed less of an increase in negative affect and physical symptoms on stressor days than on stressor-free days. Purpose did not predict changes in positive affect in response to daily stressors.ConclusionsFindings provide evidence that a purposeful life may be characterized by lower negative affect and physical symptom reporting on stressful days.
