  • Featured Article: Multiple Comorbid Conditions, Sleep Quality and
           Duration, and Academic Performance in Urban Children With Asthma
    • Authors: Reynolds K; Boergers J, Kopel S, et al.
      Pages: 943 - 954
      Abstract: ObjectiveCommon comorbid medical conditions including allergic rhinitis (AR), obesity, and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) have been linked with asthma exacerbations; however, these conditions also impact sleep and academic functioning. The current study sought to examine unique and combined associations of these common comorbidities on sleep and academic performance among urban minority children with persistent asthma. We expected additional comorbid diagnoses would be associated with poorer sleep and academic functioning.MethodUrban children 7–9 years old (n = 249) with persistent asthma from African American, Latino, and non-Latino White backgrounds participated in this cross-sectional study. Asthma and AR were assessed using guidelines-based approaches. Overweight/obesity was assessed using body mass index and parents reported on SDB risk. Sleep quality (sleep efficiency) and sleep duration were assessed via 4 weeks of actigraphy. A cumulative risk index (CRI) score of asthma-related comorbidities (i.e., number of comorbidities for which each child met criteria) was calculated.ResultsComorbid conditions were prevalent (AR, 85%; overweight/obese, 39%; SDB risk, 44%). Lower SDB risk and better AR control were both associated with fewer school absences. A higher CRI score was associated with shorter sleep duration and more absences. For children with 1 comorbid condition, better lung function was associated with better sleep efficiency.ConclusionFindings suggest increased risk of shorter sleep and more frequent school absences among urban minority children with asthma and more comorbid conditions. Assessment and treatment of this high-risk group must consider how comorbid conditions exacerbate children’s asthma and may affect sleep and daytime functioning.

  • JPP Student Journal Club Commentary: Sleep in Youth With Chronic Health
           Conditions: Expanding Models to Understand Complexity in Youth With
           Comorbid Conditions
    • Authors: Ramasami J; Fehr K.
      Pages: 955 - 957
      Abstract: Reynolds and colleagues (2018) highlight the role that comorbid medical conditions play in exacerbating negative quality of life outcomes for pediatric populations. They demonstrated that in minority youth with persistent asthma, those with more comorbid conditions also experienced, on average, poorer sleep and academic outcomes. More specifically, higher cumulative risk index (CRI) scores (i.e., more comorbidities) were significantly related to decreased sleep duration and increased school absences. CRI scores were also assessed as a moderator between asthma-related lung function and sleep and academic functioning. They found that better lung function was associated with better sleep efficiency for individuals with one comorbid condition; CRI scores did not moderate the relationships among the remaining models. Multiple comorbidities may create a more complex picture for understanding the relationship between lung function and sleep quality. Additionally, higher sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) risk was associated with more school absences in the full sample and in the Latino group, but not for the African-American group. However, African-American children had higher rates of SDB risk than Latino children. This work contributes to the literature on sleep problems in youth and underscores the compounding impact of chronic medical conditions on functional outcomes. However, certain family- and cultural-level components were not fully explored, and further research is needed to better understand the complex relationships between comorbidities of chronic health conditions and sleep quality.

  • Effectiveness of Disease-Specific Cognitive Behavioral Therapy on Anxiety,
           Depression, and Quality of Life in Youth With Inflammatory Bowel Disease:
           A Randomized Controlled Trial
    • Authors: Stapersma L; van den Brink G, van der Ende J, et al.
      Pages: 967 - 980
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo evaluate the effectiveness of a disease-specific cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocol on anxiety and depressive symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adolescents and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).MethodA parallel group randomized controlled trial was conducted in 6 centers of (pediatric) gastroenterology. Included were 70 patients and young adults (10–25 years) with IBD and subclinical anxiety and/or depressive symptoms. Patients were randomized into 2 groups, stratified by center: (a) standard medical care (care-as-usual [CAU]) plus disease-specific manualized CBT (Primary and Secondary Control Enhancement Training for Physical Illness; PASCET-PI), with 10 weekly sessions, 3 parent sessions, and 3 booster sessions (n = 37), or (b) CAU only (n = 33). Primary analysis concerned the reliable change in anxiety and depressive symptoms after 3 months (immediate posttreatment assessment). Exploratory analyses concerned (1) the course of anxiety and depressive symptoms and HRQOL in subgroups based on age, and (2) the influence of age, gender, and disease type on the effect of the PASCET-PI.ResultsOverall, all participants improved significantly in their anxiety and depressive symptoms and HRQOL, regardless of group, age, gender, and disease type. Primary chi-square tests and exploratory linear mixed models showed no difference in outcomes between the PASCET-PI (n = 35) and the CAU group (n = 33).ConclusionsIn youth with IBD and subclinical anxiety and/or depressive symptoms, preliminary results of immediate post-treatment assessment indicated that a disease-specific CBT added to standard medical care did not perform better than standard medical care in improving psychological symptoms or HRQOL.

  • Evaluation of an Intensive Interdisciplinary Pain Treatment Based on
           Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Adolescents With Chronic Pain and
           Their Parents: A Nonrandomized Clinical Trial

      Pages: 981 - 994
      Abstract: ObjectiveParental factors are central in the development and maintenance of chronic pain in youths. Only a handful of studies have investigated the impact of psychological treatments for pediatric chronic pain on parental factors, and the relationships between changes in parental and adolescent factors. In the current study, we evaluated the effects of an intensive interdisciplinary pain treatment (IIPT) program based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for adolescents with chronic pain, on adolescent and parental variables, and the relationship between parental psychological flexibility and adolescent pain acceptance.MethodsAdolescents (N = 164) with chronic pain were included, with a mean age of 15.5 years, and completed the 3-week treatment with an accompanying parent (N = 164). Linear mixed-effects models were used to analyze change over time (from pretreatment to 3-month follow-up) on parent (depression, health-related quality of life and parent psychological flexibility) and adolescent (physical, social and emotional functioning, and adolescent pain acceptance) variables. Additionally, linear mixed-effects models were used to analyze the relationship between parent psychological flexibility and adolescent pain acceptance.ResultsResults illustrated significant improvements over time in depressive symptoms and levels of psychological flexibility in parents. Excluding social development, adolescents improved significantly in all assessed aspects of functioning and pain acceptance. Additionally, changes in parent psychological flexibility were significantly associated with changes in adolescent pain acceptance.ConclusionsResults indicated that treatment had positive effects for parents and adolescents, and a significant positive relationship between changes in parent psychological flexibility and adolescent pain acceptance was found.

  • “It’s Just for Us!” Perceived Benefits of Participation in a Group
           Intervention for Siblings of Children With Cancer
    • Authors: Barrera M; Neville A, Purdon L, et al.
      Pages: 995 - 1003
      Abstract: ObjectiveThis qualitative substudy aimed to investigate the outcomes of sibling group interventions from the perspective of siblings of children with cancer and their caregivers.MethodSiblings were randomized to receive the Siblings Coping Together intervention (SibCT) or attention control (CG). In all, 30 participants, 18 siblings (average age = 11.89 years, 9 CG and 9 SibCT) and 12 caregivers (4 CG and 8 SibCT), were interviewed following group participation. SibCT consists of eight 2-hr manualized sessions delivered weekly; in each session, it combines arts and crafts and cognitive–behavioral strategies structured around a specific theme (family or school). The CG is structured only around arts and crafts. Interviews were analyzed using content analysis.ResultsThemes common to both groups included the following: having a group just for siblings, improving family relationships, and feeling reassured of parental role. Themes unique to the SibCT group included the following: learning program targets, increasing self-confidence, feeling less different, and connecting caregivers and siblings through homework. Themes unique to the control group included the following: being a good helper and being in the hospital for positive reasons.ConclusionThis study uncovered additional intervention effects not captured in quantitative measures. Whereas benefits were noted in both groups and speak to the importance of support for siblings in general, positive personal and relational changes unique to siblings in the SibCT group and their caregivers support the importance of specific interventions focused on problem-solving siblings’ issues.

  • Reducing Health Risk Behaviors and Improving Depression in Adolescents: A
           Randomized Controlled Trial in Primary Care Clinics
    • Authors: Bai S; Zeledon L, D’Amico E, et al.
      Pages: 1004 - 1016
      Abstract: ObjectivePrimary care (PC) is a major service delivery setting that can provide preventive behavioral health care to youths. To explore the hypothesis that reducing health risk behaviors (HRBs) would lower depressive symptoms, and that health risk and depression can be efficiently targeted together in PC, this study (1) evaluates an intervention designed to reduce HRBs among adolescent PC patients with depressive symptoms and (2) examines prospective links between HRBs and depressive symptoms.MethodA Randomized controlled trial was conducted comparing a behavioral health intervention with enhanced Usual PC (UC+). Participants were 187 adolescents (ages 13–18 years) with past-year depression, assessed at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months. Primary outcome was the Health Risk Behavior Index (HRBI), a composite score indexing smoking, substance use, unsafe sex, and obesity risk. Secondary/exploratory outcomes were an index of the first three most correlated behaviors (HRBI-S), each HRB, depressive symptoms, and satisfaction with mental health care.ResultsOutcomes were similar at 6 and 12 months, with no significant between-group differences. HRBI, HRBI-S, and depressive symptoms decreased, and satisfaction with mental health care increased across time in both groups. HRBI, HRBI-S, and smoking predicted later severe depression. Conversely, severe depression predicted later HRBI-S and substance use.ConclusionsUC+ and the behavioral health intervention yielded similar benefits in reducing HRBs and depressive symptoms. Findings underscore the bidirectional links between depression and HRBs, supporting the importance of monitoring for HRBs and depression in PC to allow for effective intervention in both areas.

  • Incorporating Appetite Awareness Training Within Family-Based Behavioral
           Treatment of Pediatric Obesity: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study
    • Authors: Njardvik U; Gunnarsdottir T, Olafsdottir A, et al.
      Pages: 1017 - 1027
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo assess additive effects of incorporating appetite awareness training (AAT), a strategy to encourage eating in response to hunger and satiety cues, within a family-based behavioral treatment (FBT) for childhood obesity.MethodsTotal 84 families with a child with obesity in the age range of 8–12 years, Body Mass Index Standard Deviation Score (BMI-SDS)  ≥ 2, and a participating parent were randomly allocated to two conditions; standard FBT was compared with FBT incorporating AAT strategies (FBT-AAT). Treatment consisted of group therapy sessions (held separately for children and parents) as well as single-family (parent–child dyad) sessions (24 sessions total) delivered over 18 weeks at a tertiary care outpatient clinic. One booster session was provided 1-year posttreatment and a final follow-up assessment was conducted at 2 years. The primary outcome was change in child standardized body mass index (BMI-SDS).ResultsThe two conditions did not differ significantly at posttest, but the FBT-AAT group was at a significantly lower weight compared with FBT at both the first-year, F(1, 82) = 4.150, p<.05, and the second-year follow-ups, F(1, 82) = 14.912, p <.001. It was notable that over the second-year of follow-up, the FBT-AAT group continued to show improvement, whereas the FBT group did not.ConclusionsIncorporating specific self-regulatory training in attending to hunger and fullness signals during a standardized family-based treatment may have enhanced the long-term maintenance of treatment effects. Findings are promising and warrant further study.

  • Factor Structure of a Spanish Translation of an Obesity-Specific
           Parent-Report Measure of Health-Related Quality of Life
    • Authors: Borner K; Mitchell T, Gray J, et al.
      Pages: 1028 - 1037
      Abstract: ObjectiveLatino youth are disproportionately affected by pediatric obesity and consequently experience impaired health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Although many caregivers of Latino youth do not speak English fluently, no validated Spanish translations of obesity-specific HRQOL measures exist for this population. Therefore, non-English-speaking Latino parents have typically been excluded from analyses related to HRQOL. This study assesses the factor structure of a Spanish translation of a parent-report measure of obesity-specific HRQOL, Sizing Them Up, in a treatment-seeking sample of children with obesity.MethodsStructural equation modeling was used to assess the factor structure of the 6-subscale, 22-item Sizing Them Up measure in 154 parents of treatment-seeking Latino youth (5–18 years of age). Analyses exploring internal consistency and convergent validity were also conducted.ResultsAcceptable measurement fit was achieved for the six-factor solution. However, the higher-order model assessing Total HRQOL did not reach acceptable levels, as results found that the Positive Social Attributes (PSA) subscale was not representative of Total HRQOL; internal consistency and convergent validity results also supported this finding.ConclusionsThe current study provides support for the utility of a modified version of Sizing Them Up, excluding the PSA Scale, as a parent-report measure of obesity-specific HRQOL in treatment-seeking Latino youth with obesity.

  • Dispositional Mindfulness and Its Relationship With Distress and
           Functioning in Adolescents With Chronic Pain and Low-Level Pain
    • Authors: Waldron S; Gauntlett-Gilbert J, Marks E, et al.
      Pages: 1038 - 1046
      Abstract: ObjectiveDispositional mindfulness is the general tendency to pay attention to present-moment awareness without judgment. The main aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine (a) whether dispositional mindfulness is associated with psychological distress in adolescents with chronic pain and low-level pain, and (b) whether it accounts for unique variance in distress after controlling for key variables from the pain literature. A secondary aim was to explore the relationship between dispositional mindfulness and functioning.Method54 adolescents seeking help for chronic pain and 94 “healthy” adolescents with recent low-level pain from the general population completed the same battery of measures, including the Child and Adolescent Mindfulness Measure of dispositional mindfulness.ResultsAs predicted, dispositional mindfulness was associated with mood and anxiety in both groups and also accounted for unique variance in mood and anxiety in standard regression models after controlling for group, age, pain-intensity, pain-catastrophizing, and pain-acceptance. Dispositional mindfulness did not differ significantly across the two groups and did not predict physical functioning. However, it did account for unique variance in social functioning.ConclusionsDispositional mindfulness may be an important construct to consider in the context of adolescents experiencing mood and anxiety problems in both low-level and chronic pain samples. Further research should aim to replicate these findings in larger clinical samples and explore the predictive power of dispositional mindfulness using longitudinal designs.

  • Profiles of Adjustment in Pediatric Cancer Survivors and Their Prediction
           by Earlier Psychosocial Factors
    • Authors: Okado Y; Rowley C, Schepers S, et al.
      Pages: 1047 - 1058
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo examine individual differences in pediatric cancer survivors’ psychosocial adjustment and test the psychosocial predictors, assessed 2–3 years earlier, of those differences.MethodPediatric cancer survivors (n = 209, aged 8–17 years at baseline) and their parents were followed for 4 years. They provided reports of survivors’ psychosocial adjustment at 3 years post-baseline, and latent profile analysis (LPA) was used to identify subgroups of survivors who differed on those reports. Multinomial logistic regression was used to predict group membership from self- and parent-reported psychosocial factors at baseline (child adjustment, disposition, and parental functioning) and at 1 year post-baseline (child social relations).ResultsThe LPA revealed a 3-class model as the best fit: a “Resilient” group (65%), characterized by good psychosocial adjustment; a “Self-Reported At-Risk” group (23%), characterized by subclinical elevations in self-reported internalizing and attention problems; and a “Parent-Reported At-Risk” group (12%), characterized by subclinical elevations in parent-reported internalizing, externalizing, and attention problems and in self-reported attention problems. Several psychosocial predictors, including child posttraumatic stress, affectivity, and connectedness to school, as well as parental distress and overprotection, differentiated the Resilient group from the other groups, in expected directions.ConclusionsThe majority of pediatric cancer survivors exhibit enduring resilience. The protective factors identified for them—including positive affectivity and strong connectedness to school—may inform targeted prevention strategies for the minority of survivors who are at risk for maladjustment.

  • PROMIS Peer Relationships Short Form: How Well Does Self-Report Correlate
           With Data From Peers'
    • Authors: Devine K; Willard V, Hocking M, et al.
      Pages: 1059 - 1067
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo examine the psychometric properties of the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) peer relationships short form (PR-SF), including association with peer-reported friendships, likeability, and social reputation.Method203 children (Mage = 10.12 years, SD = 2.37, range = 6–14) in Grades 1–8 completed the 8-item PR-SF and friendship nominations, like ratings, and social reputation measures about their peers during 2 classroom visits approximately 4 months apart, as part of a larger study. A confirmatory factor analysis, followed by an exploratory factor analysis, was conducted to examine the factor structure of the PR-SF. Spearman correlations between the PR-SF and peer-reported outcomes evaluated construct validity.ResultsFor the PR-SF, a 2-factor solution demonstrated better fit than a 1-factor solution. The 2 factors appear to assess friendship quality (3 items) and peer acceptance (5 items). Reliability was marginal for the friendship quality factor (.66) but adequate for the acceptance factor (.85); stability was .34 for the PR-SF over 4 months. The PR-SF (8 items) and acceptance factor (5 items) both had modest but significant correlations with measures of friendship (rs = .25–.27), likeability (rs = .21–.22), and social reputation (rs = .29–.44).ConclusionsThe PR-SF appears to be measuring two distinct aspects of social functioning. The 5-item peer acceptance scale is modestly associated with peer-reported friendship, likeability, and social reputation. Although not a replacement for peer-reported outcomes, the PR-SF is a promising patient-reported outcome for peer relationships in youth.
