  • Autism Spectrum Disorder and Psychosis: A Case Study
    • Authors: Andrew Cashin
      Abstract: PROBLEM While apparently relatively common, there is often little clinician awareness of the risk of psychosis for people with autism. METHODS A comprehensive review of the peer‐reviewed literature and a presentation of a case study. FINDINGS There is a paucity of research available to determine the prevalence of the experience of psychosis in people with autism. CONCLUSION There is significant boundary overlap between autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia spectrum disorder. This article provides a comprehensive review of the research and a case study of a 16‐year‐old male with autism who experienced a brief reactive psychosis.

  • An Introduction to the Psychopharmacology of Children and Adolescents With
           Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Jason F. Earle
      Abstract: TOPIC Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Psychopharmacology can play an important role within an array of services to help children and adolescents with ASD. PURPOSE This article reviews the current evidence supporting the use of various psychiatric medications to treat common symptoms that often compromise functioning: severe irritability, interfering repetitive behaviors, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and sleep dysregulation. Based on the accumulating research, the article also offers practice recommendations. SOURCES The article primarily draws on the science generated by investigators from the Research Units on Pediatric Psychopharmacology Autism Network. This body of work consists of randomized controlled trials, meta‐analyses, open trials, and review articles. CONCLUSIONS There are currently no FDA‐approved medications to treat the core symptoms of ASD. Consequently, all medications, besides risperidone and aripiprazole for severe irritability, are considered off‐label. Additionally, due to reduced levels of effectiveness and higher rates of side effects, more typical medications such as antidepressants and stimulants should be used with caution. However, the evidence indicates that the thoughtful use of psychiatric medication in conjunction with other interventions may be beneficial in helping children and adolescents with ASD thrive at school and home.

  • Psychophysiological Manifestations Associated With Stress in Students of a
           Public University in Mexico
    • Abstract: PROBLEM Academic stress is defined as a physiological, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral activation reaction to stimuli. This stress can impact students’ ability to cope with the school environment. OBJECTIVE To identify the psychophysiological manifestations associated with high‐level academic stress in public university students in Mexico. METHODS A representative random sampling of 527 students was evaluated during 2012. The Academic Stress Symptom Inventory and the Rossi classification were used; data were analyzed with a binary logistic regression analysis to estimate association between psychophysiological manifestations and the high level of academic stress in public university students. FINDINGS Results indicated a meaningful association between high levels of academic stress situations and psychophysiological manifestations such as concentration and memory problems, mental blocks and chronic fatigue, drowsiness, and despair. CONCLUSION Identifying academic stress situations and students’ maladaptive responses may help promote timely attention to psychophysiological manifestations before they exacerbate and become harmful to college students’ health.

  • A Case Study of an Adolescent With Health Anxiety and OCD, Treated Using
           CBT: Single‐Case Experimental Design
    • Abstract: PROBLEM The sparse research evidence base for adolescents with health anxiety proposes a challenge in the treatment of such mental health difficulties. Similarities are drawn between health anxiety and obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) in terms of their development and maintenance. The literature is reviewed and discussed in relation to the referral, assessment, formulation, cognitive behavioral intervention, and treatment outcome. METHODS The case of an adolescent girl (aged 15 years) who presented with significant levels of health anxiety and OCD is described. An adult cognitive behavioral model of health anxiety was adapted and integrated with evidence‐based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for children and adolescents with OCD. These models were used to collaboratively conceptualize the young person's presenting difficulties. A single‐case experimental design was employed to assess the effectiveness of the intervention. FINDINGS AND CONCLUSION Routine outcome measures demonstrated the effectiveness of the OCD intervention, and the need for further research in health anxiety in young people, including the development of disorder and age‐specific measures. The implications for the use of CBT to treat health anxiety for young people are discussed.

  • The Richness Available Within Medication Management
    • Authors: Doris M. Byssum
      Abstract: PROBLEM An 18‐year‐old male patient comes in for an initial evaluation of his anxiety. His anxiety is not in remission on his current medication, and he is experiencing tics when his anxiety escalates. METHODS Time and patience are used to complete a comprehensive evaluation of the patient by interviewing him, gathering collateral information from a family member, utilizing a screening tool, reviewing past history and treatment regimens, and conceptualizing the patient. FINDINGS A thorough interview and assessment reveals a rich history of possible antecedents to the anxiety of the patient. CONCLUSION In order to make a thorough biopsychosocial assessment, the practitioner needs to approach the patient with a genuine interest. By utilizing time and patience, the practitioner has a greater opportunity to gather pertinent information for comprehensive recommendations. Underlying issues contributing to the patient's anxiety may be alleviated through nonpharmacologic management in addition to medication.

  • Raising the Level of Nursing Involvement in the National Precision
           Medicine Initiative: An Example
    • Authors: Ukamaka Marian Oruche; Janet S. Carpenter, Jamie Renbarger, Sydney E. Ross
      Abstract: PURPOSE The Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) goal of ushering in a new and more effective era of health care that benefits all Americans requires two critical and interdependent components: a cohort assembly of 1 million or more Americans who reflect the diversity of the United States of America and an interdisciplinary workforce that includes nursing. The purpose of this article is to provide an example of nursing involvement in PM, specifically as related to gathering biospecimens (saliva) from vulnerable, understudied adolescents with disruptive behavior disorders and their family members. SOURCE(S) First, we provide a brief description of important concepts related to PM as well as current roles of nurses in PM. Then, we share lessons learned from our feasibility study aimed at increasing the diversity of our statewide cohort assembly that has provided biospecimens for the Indiana Biobank. CONCLUSION Nurses can definitely contribute to biobanks in support of the PMI. This article is a call to action for nurses to take their rightful place in PM.

  • Awareness and Knowledge of Child and Adolescent Risky Behaviors: A
           Parent's Perspective
    • Authors: Nancy R. Ahern; Jeanne Kemppainen, Paige Thacker
      First page: 6
      Abstract: PROBLEM Adolescence is a developmental stage marked by risk‐taking and limited comprehension of dangers of risky behaviors. Previous research has focused on adolescents’ perspective of risk with little evidence on parents’ knowledge regarding risk. METHODS This qualitative study examined parental knowledge and perspectives of child/teen risk behaviors associated with salvia, sexting, inhalant use/abuse, and self/participant‐assisted choking. A sample of 30 parents of children/teens aged 10–17 completed a self‐administered survey based on Flanagan's critical incident technique. FINDINGS Data were analyzed according to Flanagan's guidelines. Two advanced practice nurses determined category reliability with 95% agreement. The survey yielded five categories of parental responses to potential risky behaviors in their child/teen including the following: talking to my children, setting up consequences, confronting the child, seeking help, and talking to others. Although the majority of the parents were aware of newer behaviors, less than one half of the participants reported discussing risks with their child/teen. One third reported that their child knew a friend who was thinking about/tried sexting. One quarter of parents reported that they were not monitoring their child/teen's media use. CONCLUSIONS Study findings provide important implications for developing an evidence‐based education intervention to improve parents’ awareness, knowledge, and identification of risk behaviors in their children/teens.

  • Perception of Parental Bonds and Suicide Intent Among Egyptian Adolescents
    • First page: 15
      Abstract: PROBLEM Suicidal adolescents, compared to their nonsuicidal peers, tend to perceive their parents as less “caring” and more “controlling”—which characterizes the “affectionless control” parenting style. Research findings are inconsistent regarding the distinct influence of mother versus father parenting on youth suicide intent; moreover, the influence of parents’ joint parenting styles on suicide intent has not been investigated. METHODS Using a cross‐sectional design and large sample (N = 150 youth, 13–21 years old), currently hospitalized in a treatment center in Egypt for a recent suicide attempt, data were collected using the Suicide Intent Scale, Parental Bonding Instrument, and Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale. FINDINGS Seventy percent of youth reported high suicide intent. Mother and father parenting styles, assessed independently, were not associated with adolescent suicide intent. The joint effect of both parents’ parenting style, however, was positively associated with suicide intent (Wald χ2 = 8.79, p = .03). Suicide intent was stronger among adolescents who experienced neglectful compared with optimal parenting style (B = 1.93, Wald χ2 = 4.28, p = .04). CONCLUSIONS The findings have direct implications for mental health nursing interventions, signaling the critical need to engage both parents in family‐based interventions to address youth suicidal behavior.

  • Gender‐Related Factors for Depressive Symptoms in Turkish
    • Authors: Ahmet Hamdi Alpaslan; Ugur Kocak, Kadriye Avci
      First page: 23
      Abstract: PROBLEM Currently more adolescents suffer from mental health problems than compared to the past. PURPOSE This study was designed to extend the knowledge of depressive symptoms in adolescence and to determine the gender‐related factors associated with it. METHODS The study sample consisted of (N = 487) adolescents. The Children's Depression Inventory (CDI), Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS), Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ‐S), and UCLA loneliness scale (UCLA‐LS) were completed by the participants. FINDINGS Among the study population, 26.6% (n = 130) scored ≥19 on the CDI, which was the cut‐off point. UCLA‐LS, hyperactivity and conduct problems, and peer problems subscale scores of SDQ‐S were found significantly higher in males (p < .05). Emotional symptoms, pro‐social behavior subscale scores of SDQ‐S, and a family member, a friend subscale scores of MSPSS were found significantly higher in females (p < .05). For males, loneliness and hyperactivity and conduct problems, while for females, emotional symptoms and loneliness (p < .05) were predictive variables. Pro‐social behavior and perceived family member support were protective variables for females scoring high enough to be diagnosed with depression (p < .05). CONCLUSION We suggest further studies to confirm these results as well as establishing strategies for better detection of depressive symptoms when working on adolescents.

  • The Differential Impact of Tourette's Syndrome and Comorbid Diagnosis on
    • Authors: Deirdre O'Hare; Edward Helmes, John Reece, Valsamma Eapen, Kerry McBain
      First page: 30
      Abstract: PROBLEM Tourette's syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric disorder associated with adverse outcomes. High rates of comorbidity (80–90%) complicate presentation, yet the relationship among TS, common comorbid diagnoses, and adversity is not well understood. This research investigated the impact of comorbidity, and the discrete effects of common comorbid diagnoses, on quality of life (QoL) and functioning of youth with TS. METHODS A community sample of parents of youth with TS (n = 86) participated in this survey‐based study. Differences in QoL (Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory) and rates of psychological, behavioral, and social difficulties (Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire) reported for youth with or without comorbid disorder were determined, in addition to outcomes associated with individual disorders. FINDINGS Parametric and nonparametric analyses revealed strong associations between comorbidity and decreased global QoL, impaired emotional and school functioning, and increased emotional symptomatology (p < .001). The impact of individual comorbid disorders was restricted and disorder specific, and TS was uniquely associated with impaired social functioning and peer relationship problems. CONCLUSIONS Understanding the risks associated with TS, particularly to psychosocial well‐being, and the specific risks accompanying individual comorbid disorders, may improve assessment, prioritization of treatment goals, and interventions targeting the individual, multidimensional needs of youth with TS.

  • Focus on Teen Men: Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Wise Guys Program
    • Authors: Judith W. Herrman; Christopher Moore, Brian Rahmer
      First page: 37
      Abstract: PROBLEM Many interventions designed to promote safe sexual behaviors in teens focus on young women. Wise Guys is one curricular intervention designed to foster safe sexual practices in young men. This study assessed knowledge, attitude, and behavioral changes as the result of Wise Guys. METHODS This pre/posttest descriptive study measured changes in knowledge, attitudes, and sexual behaviors in 159 young men. FINDINGS This study detected limited knowledge and attitude changes but yielded statistically significant differences in safe sexual behaviors and likelihood to talk with parents or guardians about sexuality and dating.

    • Pages: 44 - 53
      Abstract: BACKGROUND Interventions for the treatment of anxiety disorders in children have a growing evidence base. Cognitive‐behavioral therapy for the treatment of specific anxiety disorders in children and adolescents, including obsessive‐compulsive disorder, is now an established intervention. However, a question remains concerning the benefits of parental involvement in treatment. Some studies report limited or no benefit of including parents in treatment, whereas other studies have indicated additional advantages of parental involvement. INTERVENTION The present case report describes the treatment of an 11‐year‐old girl with obsessive‐compulsive disorder using cognitive‐behavioral therapy derived largely from the treatment approaches outlined in Carr (2006), March and Mulle (1998), and Derisley, Heyman, Robinson, and Turner (2008). The child's mother attended all sessions and also a one‐off parent‐only session toward the end of treatment. The report considers the benefits of involving the child's mother in treatment and possible factors that could suggest parental involvement is indicated in future cases. OUTCOMES Both child and mother, and the therapist, believed that parental involvement had been an important and useful element of treatment. Possible reasons for benefits of parental involvement were considered to be high parental anxiety at the outset of treatment, age of the client, and involvement of the parent in obsessions and compulsions.
