  • 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
      First page: 62
      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
    • First page: 79
      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.

  • 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
      First page: 85
      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.

  • The Richness Available Within Medication Management
    • Authors: Doris M. Byssum
      First page: 89
      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.

  • A Case Study of an Adolescent With Health Anxiety and OCD, Treated Using
           CBT: Single‐Case Experimental Design
    • First page: 95
      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.

  • Innovative Strength‐Based Care in Child and Adolescent Inpatient
           Psychiatry
    • Abstract: PROBLEM Child and adolescent psychiatric units serve the highest risk, most vulnerable populations in the mental health delivery system. This article describes the integration of a strength‐based approach with a traditional, medical model of psychiatric care on an acute inpatient unit. A strength‐based framework allows for increased focus on exploring patients' goals, strengths, relationships, skills, and family communication within the hospital setting. METHODS The process of integration of strength‐based care is described, followed by discussion of the implementation and evaluation of interventions, including mindfulness, family movie, narrative, and animal‐assisted therapies. FINDINGS Innovative interventions led to improvement in patient symptoms, unit culture, and patient, family, and staff satisfaction. CONCLUSION A strong emphasis on strength‐based, multidisciplinary treatment has enhanced patient care, as the goals of acute inpatient admission are broadened to include more than diagnosis and medication management.
       
  • Suicide risk screening tools and the youth population
    • Abstract: TOPIC The use of suicide risk screening tools is a critical component of a comprehensive approach to suicide risk assessment. Since nurses frequently spend more time with patients than any other healthcare professional, they are in key positions to detect and prevent suicidal behavior in youth. PURPOSE To inform nurses about suicide risk screening tools for the youth population. Suicide risk screening tools are research‐based standardized instruments that are used to identify people who may be at risk for suicide. SOURCES USED A literature search was performed using the Athabasca University Library Resource, the databases of the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, ScienceDirect, and Google Scholar. CONCLUSIONS Nurses are cautioned to utilize suicide risk screening tools as only part of the suicide risk assessment in youth populations and avoid the danger of relying on tools that may result in a blind application of evidence to the detriment of clinical experience and judgement.
       
  • Prevalence and Associated Factors of Depressive Symptoms Among
           Disadvantaged Adolescents: Results from a Population‐Based Study in
           Bangladesh
    • Abstract: PROBLEM Few studies have examined the adolescents’ depression in low‐income countries and no research has yet been carried out in Bangladesh. This study estimated the prevalence of depressive symptoms and explored the associated factors and help seeking behavior among adolescents in Bangladesh. METHODS Data originated from a cross section of 2,440 randomly selected boys and girls aged 13–19 years in a rural district and urban slums of Dhaka city, Bangladesh, during October–November 2012. Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), a 21‐item scale, measured the prevalence of depressive symptoms using a cut‐off 16 or higher. FINDINGS The prevalence of depressive symptoms among adolescents was 14%, with predominance in urban slums and among girls. Older age (15–19 years), poverty, and poor parental relation were found to be associated with depressive symptoms of both sexes; family history of depressive symptoms for boys; and reproductive illness and sexual abuse for girls. More than 80% of depressed adolescents sought no help. CONCLUSIONS Adolescent depressive symptoms are common and largely undetected public health problem in Bangladesh. Policies aimed at concerted efforts for implementing a school‐based counseling program with components of cognitive behavioral therapy and developing referral systems for those who scored at least 30 at BDI may ameliorate the potential harmful consequences of depressive symptoms in adolescents.
