  • Feasibility, Acceptability, and Preliminary Effects of the COPE Online
           Cognitive‐Behavioral Skill‐Building Program on Mental Health
           Outcomes and Academic Performance in Freshmen College Students: A
           Randomized Controlled Pilot Study
    • Authors: Bernadette Mazurek Melnyk; Megan Amaya, Laura A. Szalacha, Jacqueline Hoying, Tiffany Taylor, Kristen Bowersox
      Abstract: Problem Despite the increasing prevalence of mental health disorders in university students, few receive needed evidence‐based treatment. Objective The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility and preliminary effects of a seven‐session online cognitive‐behavioral skill‐building intervention (i.e., COPE, Creating Opportunities for Personal Empowerment) versus a comparison group on their anxiety, depressive symptoms, and grade performance. Methods A randomized controlled pilot study was conducted from September 2012 to May 2013 with 121 college freshmen enrolled in a required one credit survey course. Findings Although there were no significant differences in anxiety and depressive symptoms between the groups, only COPE students with an elevated level of anxiety at baseline had a significant decline in symptoms. Grade point average was higher in COPE versus comparison students. Evaluations indicated that COPE was a positive experience for students. Conclusions COPE is a promising brief intervention that can be integrated effectively into a required freshman course.

  • An Assessment and Diagnosis Case Study Is Not a Closed Case
    • Authors: Doris M. Van Byssum
      Abstract: Problem The presenting problem of anxiety is found to be one of many psychiatric symptoms resulting in a lack of clarity in diagnosis and treatment. Method The case of a 17‐year‐old reporting escalating anxiety and migraine headaches is presented. A mental health assessment, parental information, screening tools, the Personality Assessment Inventory, ongoing observation, review of treatment regimens, consultation, and test results from other healthcare professionals are included in the ongoing assessment. Findings Symptoms including anxiety, auditory and tactile hallucinations, mood alterations, substance use, insomnia, and hypomanic symptoms are identified. The symptoms are suggestive of various diagnostic categories/diagnoses: mood disorder, prodromal schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. Conclusion A thorough assessment does not necessarily lead to clarity of a diagnosis or diagnoses. Clarity may evolve over time; however, this does not eliminate the responsibility to treat the patient. It is important to consider and utilize evidence‐based treatments for the symptomatology and possible diagnoses.

  • Family Accommodation of Child and Adolescent Anxiety: Mechanisms,
           Assessment, and Treatment
    • Authors: Kaila R. Norman; Wendy K. Silverman, Eli R. Lebowitz
      Abstract: Topic Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern for youth. Unfortunately, a substantial number of children and adolescents do not respond positively to current evidence‐based interventions and/or relapse. As pediatric anxiety disorders are fundamentally a systemic phenomenon, focusing on the ways in which parents become involved in their children's anxiety symptoms may be a promising alternative approach to treatment. Purpose To inform psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) about the phenomenology, associated neurobiology, and assessment of family accommodation (FA) as well as clinical interventions targeting FA. FA refers to ways that parents adapt their own behaviors to reduce their children's anxiety‐related distress. Sources Used A literature search was performed using Psyc‐INFO and PubMed. Conclusions Current findings indicate a high prevalence of FA associated with pediatric anxiety disorders. FA has a potentially deleterious impact on course of illness and treatment response and is associated with greater caregiver burden. Potential neurobiological underpinnings of FA include dysregulation of parent cortico‐limbic circuitry and the oxytocinergic system. PMHNPs are in a unique position to identify families engaged in problematic FA, educate their clientele, provide psychotherapy services with the goal of reducing FA, and consult with multidisciplinary team members.

  • Enhancing the Capacity of School Nurses to Reduce Excessive Anxiety in
           Children: Development of the CALM Intervention
    • Authors: Kelly L. Drake; Catherine E. Stewart, Michela A. Muggeo, Golda S. Ginsburg
      Abstract: Problem Excessive anxiety is among the most common psychiatric problems facing youth. Because anxious youth tend to have somatic complaints, many seek help from the school nurse. Thus, school nurses are in an ideal position to provide early intervention. This study addresses this problem and describes the plans to develop and test a new intervention (Child Anxiety Learning Modules; CALM), delivered by school nurses, to reduce child anxiety and improve academic functioning. Methods An iterative development process including consultation with an expert panel, two open trials, and a pilot randomized controlled study comparing CALM to usual care is proposed. Feedback will be solicited from all participants during each phase and data on outcome measures will be provided by children, parents, teachers, and independent evaluators. Findings Data will be collected on intervention satisfaction and feasibility. Primary outcomes that include child anxiety symptoms, classroom behavior, and school performance (e.g., attendance, grades, standardized test scores) will be collected at pre‐ and post‐interventions and at a 3‐month follow‐up evaluation. Conclusions Pediatric anxiety is a common problem that school nurses frequently encounter. Consequently, they are well positioned to play a key role in enhancing access to behavioral health interventions to reduce anxiety and may therefore make a significant positive public health impact.

  • Evidence‐Based Practice in the Face of Complexity and Comorbidity: A
           Case Study of an Adolescent With Asperger's Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression,
           and Chronic Pain
    • Authors: Maria E. Loades
      Abstract: Problem Working with clients who present with multiple conditions and comorbidities, including mental health difficulties, neurodevelopmental disorders, and physical health conditions, requires the therapist to go beyond the existing evidence base to make decisions about which specific cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) models and resultant treatment approaches to draw on in therapy. Routine outcome monitoring across a number of parameters, including goal progress, symptom improvement, and changes in functioning, are core to maintaining accountability through monitoring the ongoing impact of idiosyncratic interventions. Method The case of a young person (age 17 years) who presented with mixed anxiety and depression in the context of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and chronic pain are presented. In addition to evidence‐based adaptations to CBT for clients with ASDs, the therapist selected a cognitive model of low self‐esteem as a means of collaboratively conceptualizing the client's difficulties. Findings and Conclusion Routine outcome measurement demonstrated the effectiveness of the intervention.

  • Family‐Style Dining on a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Unit: A
           Quality Improvement Project to Reduce Weight Changes in Patients
    • Authors: Nancy Praglowski
      Abstract: Background Improving nutritional standards for children has become a national health initiative. However, children who are hospitalized are often at additional risk for poor nutrition and diet. Following a change to family‐style dining, nursing staff noted significant patient weight changes. We undertook a quality improvement project to address this issue and promote healthy weight maintenance. Methods Nursing staff requested changes to the types of foods served and placed limits on how much patients were permitted to eat. We also developed a nutrition group to educate the patients on healthy food choices. Results We were able to reduce weight changes in patients on our unit from a mean change of 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) to a mean change of 0.01 kg (0.027 lb). Conclusions Patient education, healthy food offerings, and limiting the amount of food eaten at meals had positive outcomes on patient weights during a child and adolescent psychiatry hospitalization.

  • Pediatric Obsessive‐Compulsive Disorder: An Update for Advanced
           Practice Psychiatric Nurses
    • Authors: Kirstyn Marie Kameg; Luann Richardson, Janene Luther Szpak
      First page: 84
      Abstract: Obsessive‐compulsive disorder (OCD) may have an onset in childhood or adolescence resulting in significant functional impairment and disability into adulthood. There are frequently developmental differences in the content of the obsessions and compulsions in youth compared to adults. Lack of insight or shame may result in failure of the youth to seek treatment. This delay in treatment may lead to the development of other psychiatric comorbidities, including suicide. Evidence‐based treatments for OCD include cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure/response prevention, and in moderate to severe cases, use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors is indicated. Advanced practice psychiatric nurses are in a unique position to provide psychoeducation, psychotherapy, and medications, if indicated, to youth with this condition to improve functioning and reduce morbidity and mortality. This article will provide an overview of the diagnostic criteria for OCD, etiologies, assessment strategies, differential diagnoses, common comorbidities, and evidence‐based treatment options.

  • The Relationships of Coping, Negative Thinking, Life Satisfaction, Social
           Support, and Selected Demographics With Anxiety of Young Adult College
    • First page: 97
      Abstract: Problem Understanding young adults' anxiety requires applying a multidimensional approach to assess the psychosocial, behavioral, and cognitive aspects of this phenomenon. Methods A hypothesized model of the relationships among coping style, thinking style, life satisfaction, social support, and selected demographics and anxiety among college students was tested using path analysis. A total of 257 undergraduate students aged 18–24 years completed an online survey. The independent variables were measured using the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, the Brief Students' Multidimensional Life Satisfaction Scale, the Brief COPE Inventory, the Positive Automatic Thoughts Questionnaire, and the Cognition Checklist‐Anxiety. The outcome, anxiety, was measured using the Anxiety subscale of the 21‐item Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale. Findings Only negative thinking and maladaptive coping had a direct relationship with anxiety. Negative thinking was the strongest predictor of both maladaptive coping and anxiety. Conclusion These findings suggest that helping undergraduates manage their anxiety by reducing their negative thinking is critical. Designing and testing interventions to decrease negative thinking in college students is recommended for future research.

  • Factors Affecting Medication Adherence in Children Receiving Outpatient
           Pharmacotherapy and Parental Adherence
    • Authors: Masaharu Nagae; Hideyuki Nakane, Sumihisa Honda, Hiroki Ozawa, Hiroko Hanada
      Pages: 109 - 117
      Abstract: Problem Although pharmacotherapy is an effective treatment for many psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents, medication adherence rates among children are low. This study clarifies factors affecting children's medication adherence and the role of parental involvement. Method Patients aged 7–17 years with a history of psychotropic medication treatment and their mothers were included in this study. Each mother and child completed self‐administered questionnaires. Thirty mother–child pairs who fully completed the questionnaires were included in the analysis. Results Medication adherence was greater in children and mothers when mothers felt that “children's symptoms improved with treatment and medication.” Medication adherence in children and mothers significantly correlated with the child's reported trust in their parent. Conclusions The results suggest the need for psychosocial support that considers the influence of mothers on medication adherence in children treated in child psychiatry departments.
