  • Mindfulness training for parents of children with special needs: Guidance
           for nurses in mental health practice
    • Authors: Manika Petcharat; Patricia Liehr
      Abstract: ProblemParents of children with special needs encounter specific challenges in carrying out their caregiving roles. They experience difficulty accepting their children due to unrealistically high expectations. Mindfulness training (MT) may increase parental psychological well-being and acceptance.ObjectiveThe purpose of this article is to examine the evidence-base for the effectiveness of MT in enhancing psychological well-being for parents of children with special needs as a foundation for guidance for nurses in mental health practice.MethodsA literature review of relevant research studies was undertaken using specific inclusion criteria. The literature was derived from three databases that identified 56 articles narrowed to 5, which met inclusion criteria.FindingsThe studies indicated that cultivating a more mindful way of parenting is associated with reduced stress, anxiety, and depression. Parents experienced increased mindful awareness and improved psychological well-being, and they were more accepting of their children. Their children also had fewer behavior problems and enhanced positive interaction with their parents. Because mindfulness interventions fall within the scope of independent nursing practice, nurses can play a significant role in applying mindfulness to promote psychological well-being in parents who have children with special needs.

  • Treatment recidivism in adolescents with mental illness: A focused applied
           medical ethnography
    • Authors: Chukwudi C. Ekwemalor; Cathy L. Rozmus, Joan C. Engebretson, Marianne T. Marcus, Rebecca L. Casarez, Andrew R. Harper
      Abstract: ProblemTreatment recidivism, described as frequent unplanned relapse readmissions, is a national problem predominant in adolescents with mental illness. Because the main triggers of treatment recidivism are not fully understood, the purpose of this study was to explore treatment recidivism (i) to better understand treatment recidivism from the perspectives of recidivist adolescents with mental illness, (ii) to describe major factors that contribute to treatment recidivism and how best to minimize them from the perspectives of these adolescents, and (iii) to describe their interaction with the medical culture.MethodsA focused applied medical ethnography was used to study 16 purposively selected adolescents. Interviews were conducted together with unobtrusive unit observation of the participants and collection of demographic and clinical information.FindingsThe participants were nearly unanimous in identifying the “additional stressors” of problematic parental relations and school bullying as the main triggers of treatment recidivism over and above their “routine stressors” of adolescence and mental illness. They had mixed perceptions of treatment recidivism and described their interaction with the medical culture as positive.ConclusionFurther research is needed to determine the impact of parental relations and school bullying on recidivism in adolescents with mental illness.

  • Evaluation of the use of a sensory room on an adolescent inpatient unit
           and its impact on restraint and seclusion prevention
    • Abstract: TopicRestraint and seclusion (R/S) reduction initiatives require multimodal efforts, particularly proactive approaches to facilitate patients’ regulation. Sensory approaches are an increasingly popular method for helping patients self-regulate. A plan-do-check-act quality improvement model was used to measure practical aspects of a newly implemented sensory room on an adolescent psychiatric inpatient unit.PurposeThis article describes an adolescent unit's implementation processes and methods used to evaluate a sensory room and its impact on R/S use, staff–patient relationships, and patients’ aggressive behaviors.Sources UsedSelected multidisciplinary literature on sensory rooms and R/S reduction, adolescent unit staff/patient surveys, and institutional quality metrics.ConclusionsThe use of a sensory room intervention substantially decreased patients’ distress and reduced R/S use and aggressive behaviors. Improvements were also found in patient and staff members’ sense of safety. No differences in the quality of staff–patient relationships were found based on sensory room use. An increase in the durations of R/S did occur and was attributed to a few patients who were “high users” of R/S. Considerations for continuous program improvement and research are discussed.
       
  • A case study integrating CBT with narrative therapy externalizing
           techniques with a child with OCD: How to flush away the Silly Gremlin. A
           single-case experimental design
    • Abstract: ProblemEvidence exists for the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) combined with externalizing techniques from narrative therapy for pediatric obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); however, no research gives a detailed account of what the externalizing process looks like in session or how it is incorporated into conceptualization. Literature is appraised with respect to the referral, assessment, formulation, intervention and outcome.MethodsThe case describes a 10-year-old boy who was referred with severe OCD. The evidence-based CBT model for OCD in child and adolescent populations was applied to the case. This was integrated with the externalizing technique from narrative therapy. Using these models, a shared formulation of the difficulties was developed, and created a new narrative. The intervention was assessed using the single-case experimental design.Findings and ConclusionsOn all but one routine outcome measure positive clinically significant changes were made, and the young person managed to reach his therapeutic goals. Gains maintained over a month follow-up period. The use of externalizing was an effective and developmentally appropriate intervention and is discussed further. The case highlighted the need for more research detailing externalizing processes.
       
  • Moms growing together: Piloting action methods and expressive arts in a
           therapeutic group for teen mothers
    • Abstract: PurposeThe purpose of this pilot study was to test the safety, acceptability, feasibility, and effectiveness of Moms Growing Together (MGT), an intervention to prevent and reduce psychological distress in teen mothers.Study Design and MethodsA mixed method design was used. The primary outcomes were reported satisfaction with MGT (acceptance); successful recruitment and retention of teen mothers (feasibility); and prevention or reduction of psychological distress (safety and effectiveness). Summary scores on each of three symptom measures operationally defined psychological distress. Sixteen African-American teen mothers participated in the study: eight in MGT and eight in a comparison group.ResultsMGT was considered safe and acceptable. MGT had a negative small effect (effect size [ES] = –0.028) on decreasing depression in participants and a moderate effect in reducing anxiety (ES = 0.395) and trauma symptoms (ES = 0.521–0.554) relative to the comparison group. Prolonged recruitment limited feasibility.ConclusionBecause psychological distress casts a long shadow on teen mothers’ well-being, developing teen-friendly clinical programs that address their mental health is a high priority.

  • Disorder-specific versus generic cognitive-behavioral treatment of anxiety
           disorders in children and young people: a systematic narrative review of
           evidence for the effectiveness of disorder-specific CBT compared with the
           disorder-generic treatment, Coping Cat
    • Abstract: BackgroundCoping Cat (CC), a generic cognitive-behavioral intervention for anxiety disorders in children and young people, is recommended in the United Kingdom for social anxiety disorder (SAD), generalized anxiety disorder, separation anxiety (SA), and specific phobias (SP), with disorder-specific approaches generally favored in treatment of anxiety disorders in adults.ObjectivesTo compare CC with disorder-specific cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions based on anxiety-related treatment outcomes.Study SelectionPrimary research articles describing treatment of children and young people aged 7–17 for SAD, generalized anxiety disorder, SA, and SP, using CC or disorder-specific CBT.ResultsTen studies implemented CC and four implemented disorder-specific CBT. One study compared CC with a disorder-specific approach. There was a lack of data to support use of CC in treatment of SPs. However, CC was equally effective as disorder-specific treatments for SA and SAD.ConclusionsA lack of data exists for disorder-specific CBT interventions compared to CC.
       
  • What are the family needs when a parent has mental health problems'
           Evidence from a systematic literature review
    • Abstract: ProblemLittle evidence exists showing how a given high-risk group of children born to parents with poor mental health seek help and how care may be improved in order to better reach and support their families.MethodsA systematic literature review was undertaken to identify the needs and help-seeking behaviors of children and their parents. Through an analysis of both quantitative and qualitative studies, published in German- and English-speaking research literature, the needs of children and parents were identified and categorized. Findings concerning their help-seeking behavior and the influence of demographic variables on needs and help-seeking behaviors were also described.FindingsIn the primary studies, the most identified parental needs were “the need for being a good parent”; “worries about the child's well-being”; and “the need for practical help.” For children, the categories identified included “the need for knowledge”; “worries about parent's well-being”; and “the need for normality.” However, information about help-seeking behaviors and influences of demographic factors was fairly limited in the literature.ConclusionsIn families with parental mental health problems, it seems especially important to take a family-focused approach. The individual needs of children (and their families) should shape the planning of treatment and nursing care.
       
  • Ethical considerations for involving Latina adolescents in mental health
           research
    • Abstract: TopicUS Latina adolescents experience significant mental health disparities, such as depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation and, therefore, should be involved in research studies focused on minimizing these health disparities. However, researchers must consider the specific ways this population is vulnerable and provide adequate protections to reduce risks related to these vulnerabilities.PurposeThe purpose of this article is to describe the different ways that Latina adolescents with mental health problems can be vulnerable research participants, identify strategies to protect this population during a research study, and describe steps taken to apply these strategies in an ongoing qualitative study examining depression in Latina adolescents.Sources UsedKipnis's (2003) article describes seven ways that children can be vulnerable research participants. These seven vulnerabilities are used to describe the vulnerabilities of Latina adolescents with mental health problems. Specific strategies to protect this population are synthesized to provide a list of strategies that can be used by researchers to reduce the risks associated with the vulnerabilities of this group.ConclusionsIn order to minimize risks for Latina adolescents, researchers must be engaged in Latino/a communities, use culturally and linguistically appropriate consent processes, and implement strategies to protect the confidentiality of Latina adolescent participants.
       
  • Hospital rules and regulations: The perspectives of youth receiving
           psychiatric care
    • Abstract: BackgroundRules and regulations represent an aspect of psychiatric hospitalization about which little is known.Study PurposeTo explore the perceptions of rules from the perspective of youth receiving hospital-based psychiatric services.DesignQualitative descriptive.MethodsPerceptions of rules were elicited through semi-structured interviews with a convenience sample of six youth.ResultsRules were perceived as governing virtually all aspects of everyday living in the hospital environment. Rules were used to structure daily activities, routines, and social interactions, and were embedded within clinical protocols and treatment plans. For each participant, “making sense” or “not making sense” were central themes through which rules were interpreted as being either therapeutic or oppressive. Rules that made “no sense” negatively affected youth mood, behavior, treatment adherence, and engagement in a collaborative relationship.ConclusionWorking in partnership with youth in psychiatric care to establish, implement, and evaluate rules that “make sense” can promote positive health outcomes and prevent negative, unintended consequences.
