  • Editorial: Making the Move to Single-Blinding in the Journal of Pediatric
    • Authors: Palermo T.
      Pages: 1069 - 1071
      Abstract: This editorial explains the rationale for a policy change for the Journal of Pediatric Psychology (JPP) to move to a single-blinded peer review process. The terminology for peer-review processes differs a bit between disciplines, so I will clarify them here. In the psychological sciences, when the identities of the authors and reviewers are not revealed to each other, it is called a “masked review process,” which is known as “double-blinded peer review” in the terminology of other disciplines. JPP has always operated its peer review process as a double-blinded or masked review where reviewers were blinded to the author(s) and the author(s) were blinded as to the reviewers. Effective January 1, 2019, we will move to a single-blind review process where authors will no longer be asked to mask/blind their manuscripts; however, authors will remain blinded as to the reviewers of their submission.

  • Featured Article: Trajectories of Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms in Parents
           of Children With a Serious Childhood Illness or Injury
    • Authors: Muscara F; McCarthy M, Hearps S, et al.
      Pages: 1072 - 1082
      Abstract: ObjectiveSerious childhood illness is associated with significant parent psychological distress. This study aimed to (a) document acute and posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) in parents of children with various life-threatening illnesses; (b) identify trajectory patterns of parental PTSS and recovery over 18 months; (c) determine psychosocial, demographic, and illness factors associated with trajectory group membership.MethodsIn total, 159 parents (115 mothers, 44 fathers) from 122 families participated in a prospective, longitudinal study that assessed parent psychological responses across four time points—at diagnosis, and 3, 6, and 18 months later. Children were admitted to the Cardiology, Oncology, and Pediatric Intensive Care Departments in a tertiary pediatric hospital. The primary outcome was parent PTSS.ResultsThree distinct parent recovery profiles were identified—“Resilient,” “Recovery,” and “Chronic.” The “Resilient” class (33%) showed low distress responses across the trajectory period, whereas the “Recovery” class (52%) showed significantly higher levels of distress at the time of diagnosis that gradually declined over the first months following their child’s illness. Both of these classes nevertheless remained within the normative range throughout. In contrast, the “Chronic” class (13%) was consistently high in severity, remaining within the clinical range across the entire period. Psychosocial factors such as mood, anxiety, and emotional responses predicted group membership, whereas demographic and illness factors did not.ConclusionsParents show considerable resilience in the face of children’s life-threatening illnesses. Early assessment of parent psychosocial factors may aid identification of those who would benefit from early intervention.

  • JPP Student Journal Club Commentary: Parental Posttraumatic Stress Symptom
           Trajectories of Children With Serious Illnesses/Injuries
    • Authors: David J; Daly B.
      Pages: 1083 - 1085
      Abstract: The prevalence of psychological distress among parents of children who experience life-threatening illnesses/injuries is well-established in the extant literature (Bonner et al., 2006; Muscara et al., 2015; Woolf, Muscara, Anderson, & McCarthy, 2016), but less is known about the trajectories of parental distress. Research has developed theoretical models of parental stress and coping, including the Integrative Model of Pediatric Medical Traumatic Stress (Kazak et al., 2006; Price, Kassam-Adams, Alderfer, Christofferson, & Kazak, 2016), and grief models, such as the Bonanno model (Bonanno, 2004). The Integrative Model of Pediatric Medical Traumatic Stress posits that coping is innately dynamic, where individuals experience acute, evolving, and longer-term responses to trauma, with psychosocial, demographic, and medical factors contributing to the presentation of posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS; Kazak et al., 2006). The Bonanno stress-coping model hypothesizes four coping trajectories: resilient trajectory (low distress at baseline, low distress over time), delayed trajectory (low distress at baseline, increasing distress over time), chronic trajectory (high distress at baseline, high distress over time), and recovery trajectory (high distress at baseline, decreasing distress over time; Bonanno, 2004). The research on parental distress in childhood illness/injury has largely been limited to cross-sectional approaches and/or focus on a single illness cohort (De Young, Hendrikz, Kenardy, Cobham, & Kimble, 2014; Hearps et al., 2014; Santacroce, 2003). The study by Muscara et al. (2018) uses the Bonanno stress-coping model and contributes to the extant literature by using a prospective longitudinal study that assessed parental PTSS across pediatric medical specialties for children with serious illnesses/injuries. As a JPP Student Journal Club commentary, this article seeks to critically assess the Muscara and colleagues (2018) article, published in this issue, and offer clinical and research considerations.

           Learning to “Think Like a Psychologist”
    • Authors: Thompson R; Jr..
      Pages: 1086 - 1092
      Abstract: My professional development as a psychologist began as the field of pediatric psychology was emerging and the opportunity to contribute to the Pioneers in Pediatric Psychology series has stimulated reflection on the interrelationship of these developmental processes. More specifically, I want to share my reflections on the formative role of three factors: the zeitgeist of innovative ideas that drive emergent processes, spawn new fields, and provide new opportunities to make a difference; the core values and defining characteristics of psychology as a behavioral science; and the importance of structures in fostering both disciplinary and personal development.

  • Depression and Quality of Life in Siblings of Children With Cancer After
           Group Intervention Participation: A Randomized Control Trial
    • Authors: Barrera M; Atenafu E, Nathan P, et al.
      Pages: 1093 - 1103
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe objective of this study was to (1) assess the effects of a group intervention called Siblings Coping Together on siblings’ psychosocial adjustment compared with controls; (2) explore the potential moderating effect of siblings’ gender; and (3) investigate whether the intervention was more effective for siblings with more depressive symptoms at baseline.MethodsThis was a repeated measure, parallel randomized controlled trial (RCT) with two groups. Seventy-five healthy siblings (7–16 years old, 41 males) participated. Both groups had 8 weekly 2-hr sessions. Intervention sessions had psychoeducational, social, and therapeutic problem-solving goals taught through games and crafts (n = 41); controls (n = 34) had games and crafts only. Self-reported symptoms of depression (Children’s Depression Inventory, CDI) and self- and proxy-reported quality of life (QOL) (Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory, PedsQL) were obtained at baseline, postintervention, and 3 months later. Multivariable analyses with a mixed effects model were performed.ResultsNo significant main group effect or group × time interactions were found for any of the scales assessed. Significant improvement over time was found for total CDI (p < .01) and proxy-reported PedsQL total (p < .001) in both groups, which may have been attributable to the passage of time.ConclusionsNo sufficient evidence was obtained for the efficacy of the intervention in the current study. Future research may examine conducting a larger RCT comparing sibling support group to no treatment control group.

  • Validation of the Spanish Version of the Psychosocial Assessment Tool
           (PAT) in Pediatric Cancer
    • Authors: Kazak A; Hwang W, Chen F, et al.
      Pages: 1104 - 1113
      Abstract: ObjectiveFamily psychosocial risk screening is an important initial step in delivering evidence-based care and in addressing health disparities. There is currently no validated measure of family psychosocial risk in Spanish. The Psychosocial Assessment Tool (PAT) is a brief parent report screener based on the trilevel Pediatric Preventative Psychosocial Risk Model (PPPHM; Universal, Targeted, and Clinical). The current article validates a Spanish version of the PAT (Version 3.0) in pediatric oncology.MethodSpanish-speaking Hispanic primary caregivers of 79 children newly diagnosed with cancer participated in this 4-institution multisite investigation, completing Spanish versions of the PAT and validation measures using REDCap.ResultsOver 60% of the sample had a high school or lower level of education and they primarily identified as Hispanic in terms of acculturation. Internal consistency for the total score (KR20 = 0.76) and the Social Support, Child Problems, Sibling Problems, and Family Problems subscales was strong (KR20 = 0.69–0.79). Stress Reactions, Family Structure, and Family Beliefs subscales were lower (KR20 = 0.43–0.55). Moderate to strong correlations with the criteria measures provided validation for the total and subscale scores. Nearly two-thirds of the sample scored in the Targeted or Clinical range of the PPPHM. The PAT was successful in identifying clinical cases.ConclusionsThe Spanish version of the PAT can be used with families of children newly diagnosed with cancer. Elevated psychosocial risks were found and warrant particular attention in providing psychosocial care attentive to the needs of Spanish-speaking families.

  • Maternal Communication in Childhood Cancer: Factor Analysis and Relation
           to Maternal Distress
    • Authors: Murphy L; Preacher K, Rights J, et al.
      Pages: 1114 - 1127
      Abstract: ObjectiveThis study aimed to characterize mothers’ communication with their children in a sample of families with a new or newly relapsed pediatric cancer diagnosis, first using factor analysis and second using structural equation modeling to examine relations between self-reported maternal distress (anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress) and maternal communication in prospective analyses. A hierarchical model of communication was proposed, based on a theoretical framework of warmth and control.MethodsThe sample included 115 children (age 5–17 years) with new or newly relapsed cancer (41% leukemia, 18% lymphoma, 6% brain tumor, and 35% other) and their mothers. Mothers reported distress (Beck Anxiety Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory-II, and Impact of Events Scale-Revised) 2 months after diagnosis (Time 1). Three months later (Time 2), mother–child dyads were video-recorded discussing cancer. Maternal communication was coded with the Iowa Family Interaction Ratings Scales.ResultsConfirmatory factor analysis demonstrated poor fit. Exploratory factor analysis suggested a six-factor model (root mean square error of approximation = .04) with one factor reflecting Positive Communication, four factors reflecting Negative Communication (Hostile/Intrusive, Lecturing, Withdrawn, and Inconsistent), and one factor reflecting Expression of Negative Affect. Maternal distress symptoms at Time 1 were all significantly, negatively related to Positive Communication and differentially related to Negative Communication factors at Time 2. Maternal posttraumatic stress and depressive symptoms each predicted Expression of Negative Affect.ConclusionsFindings provide a nuanced understanding of maternal communication in pediatric cancer and identify prospective pathways of risk between maternal distress and communication that can be targeted in intervention.

  • Sibling-Controlled Study of Parental Bonding, Coping, and Urgent
           Health-Care Use in Families With Children With Nonepileptic Seizures
    • Authors: Bursch B; Forgey M, Emerson N, et al.
      Pages: 1128 - 1137
      Abstract: ObjectivesPediatric psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) is a functional somatic symptom condition with significant health-care service burden. While both family and individual factors play an important role in the development and maintenance of PNES, little is known about what predicts urgent health-care use in families with children who have PNES. The aim of the current study was to explore whether child coping and parental bonding styles influence the decision to seek urgent medical care in these families.MethodsData were analyzed from youth of age 8–18 years, 47 with PNES, and their 25 sibling controls. Parents provided the number of youth emergency room visits and hospitalizations in the preceding year. Youth completed a questionnaire about their coping styles and a measure about their mothers’ and fathers’ bonding styles. Using a mixed model with family as a random effect, we regressed urgent health-care use on participant type (youth with PNES or sibling), parental bonding style, and youth coping style, controlling for number of child prescription medications.ResultsHigher urgent health-care use was associated with having PNES, coping via monitoring, and perceiving one’s father to be rejecting and overprotective. Lower urgent health-care use was associated with coping via venting and with perceiving one’s mother to be caring and overprotective.ConclusionsThis study provides preliminary empirical support for family-based clinical efforts to reduce child urgent health-care use by enhancing effective child coping skills and improving parental response to child impairment and distress in families with youth with PNES.

  • Feeding a Fussy Eater: Examining Longitudinal Bidirectional Relationships
           Between Child Fussy Eating and Maternal Feeding Practices
    • Authors: Mallan K; Jansen E, Harris H, et al.
      Pages: 1138 - 1146
      Abstract: ObjectiveChild fussy eating has been associated with a range of maternal feeding practices; however, whether effects are parent-driven, child-driven, or bidirectional (i.e., both) remains unclear. This study tested for bidirectional relationships between nonresponsive and structure-related maternal feeding practices and child fussy eating at age 2, 3.7, and 5 years using a cross-lagged model approach.MethodsFirst-time Australian mothers (N = 207) reported four nonresponsive and four structure-related feeding practices and child food fussiness (FF) using validated questionnaires at child age 2, 3.7, and 5 years. Bivariate cross-lagged analyses were conducted for each of the eight feeding practices separately.ResultsBoth child- and parent-driven associations were observed. Higher FF at 3.7 years predicted higher nonresponsive feeding practices and less structure-related practices at 5 years. Higher structure-related practices at 2 and 3.7 years predicted lower FF at 3.7 and 5 years, respectively. Use of food as a reward for behavior at 3.7 years predicted higher FF at 5 years.ConclusionsBoth parent- and child-driven associations explain the relationship between fussy eating and feeding practices. Given that early fussy eating is associated with more nonresponsive feeding, providing parents with anticipatory guidance to manage fussy eating behavior in infants and toddlers may help to avoid the use of these practices. Furthermore, the use of structure-related feeding practices and avoiding the use of food rewards may help to prevent the development of fussy eating.

  • A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial Testing the Effectiveness of a
           Pedestrian Training Program That Teaches Children Where and How to Cross
           the Street Safely
    • Authors: Morrongiello B; Corbett M, Beer J, et al.
      Pages: 1147 - 1159
      Abstract: ObjectivePedestrian injury is a leading cause of injury-related mortality for children. This pilot randomized controlled trial tested the efficacy of a training program to teach where and how to cross safely.MethodsUsing fully immersive virtual reality technology, 142 children 7–10 years of age were recruited, with 130 completing crossing measures before (pretest) and immediately after (posttest) training. Training comprised 1.5 hr, was tailored to each child’s performance over trials, and focused on either where to cross (n = 44 children completed testing) or how to cross safely (n = 43); corresponding control groups comprised 22 and 21 children, respectively. Following training, children in the intervention groups completed additional tasks to test conceptual knowledge and generalization of learning. Children in the control groups spent the same time as those in training groups but played a video game that used the same game controller but provided no training in street crossing.ResultsThe primary outcomes were errors in crossing at posttest, controlling for pretest error scores. Children in the intervention group made from 75% to 98% fewer errors at posttest than control children for all pedestrian safety variables related to where and how to cross safely, with effect sizes (incidence rate ratios) varying between 0.02 and 0.25. They also showed a generalization of what they had learned and applied this knowledge to novel posttraining situations.ConclusionTraining within a virtual pedestrian environment can successfully improve children’s conceptual understanding and crossing behaviors for both where and how to cross streets safely.

  • Executive Functioning Mediates the Relationship Between Pain Coping and
           Quality of Life in Youth With Sickle Cell Disease
    • Authors: Ludwig N; Sil S, Khowaja M, et al.
      Pages: 1160 - 1169
      Abstract: ObjectiveSickle cell disease (SCD) is a lifelong condition characterized by pain, which is associated with reduced health-related quality of life (HRQL). Data suggest that patients with SCD vary in how they cope and their neurocognitive abilities. This study aimed to characterize executive functioning and pain coping styles in children with SCD experiencing a range of pain frequency (i.e., chronic, episodic, and asymptomatic) and to examine whether executive functioning mediates the relationship between pain coping and HRQL.MethodParticipants included 100 children and adolescents with SCD between the ages of 8 and 18 years (M = 13.53, SD = 2.8) and their parents who were recruited during outpatient SCD clinic visits in a children’s hospital. Children completed questionnaires related to pain experience and pain coping. Parents completed questionnaires about demographic information, their child’s executive functioning, and HRQL.ResultsPain intensity, executive dysfunction, and engagement in emotion-focused coping (i.e., internalizing/catastrophizing and externalizing) predicted poor HRQL. In addition, engagement in emotion-focused coping predicted executive dysfunction. Multivariate analysis of covariance revealed executive functioning did not differ based on pain frequency; however, executive functioning was a significant mediator that helped explain the relationships between distraction and emotion-focused coping techniques on HRQL.ConclusionFindings support that executive functioning is an important factor in understanding the relationship between pain coping and HRQL in youth with SCD. Future research is warranted to examine the potential impact of executive functioning on the utility of interventions targeting adaptive pain coping in youth with SCD.

  • Parental Psychological Distress Moderates the Impact of a Video
           Intervention to Help Parents Manage Young Child Vaccination Pain
    • Authors: Gennis H; Pillai Riddell R, O’Neill M, et al.
      Pages: 1170 - 1178
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe current study sets out to conduct a post hoc analysis of the moderating effect of parent psychological distress on a pediatric pain management intervention.MethodsParents of 6-month-old infants (n = 64) and 18-month-old toddlers (n = 64 each) were randomized to a treatment (The ABCDs of Pain Management) or control video and videotaped during the vaccination. Parent psychological distress was also measured at the vaccination. Outcomes were children’s pain, parent worry, and parent soothing behavior post-vaccination.ResultsParent psychological distress only moderated video effect on toddler pain during the regulation phase. Parent psychological distress did not moderate the impact of the video on parent worry or parent soothing post-needle at either age. The video did increase parent soothing in parents of both infants and toddlers, and reduced worry in parents of toddlers.ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first study to assess a moderating factor on a child pain management intervention. The video’s efficacy was moderated for toddlers’ pain regulation, such that parents with high psychological distress did not show as much benefit from the intervention. No other moderations were found in either age group for any other outcome. Main effects for the video impacting soothing behavior of parents of both infants and toddlers were confirmed, and a new finding of video efficacy was seen through the significantly lower worry of toddlers’ parents post-needle. Given the nonclinical sample, low levels of psychological distress were found. Efforts to replicate this study in a higher risk sample are necessary.
