  • Binge Drinking and Risk Taking Behavior Among Adolescent Females in Israel
    • Authors: Richard Isralowitz; Alexander Reznik
      Abstract: Purpose This prospective study examined binge drinking and alcohol‐related problem behavior among Israeli adolescent females attending public school or a residential facility for substance abuse treatment. Problem Scant information is known about adolescent females, especially those with high‐risk (e.g., school dropout and immigrant origin) characteristics. Methods The authors hypothesized that school, residential treatment, and mothers' country of origin status are associated with binge drinking and problem behavior. Findings Females in residential treatment reported higher levels of binge drinking and problem behavior as expected. However, country of origin was not a significant factor differentiating the female adolescents in school or a residential facility. Logistic regression points to current cigarette smoking, ease of purchasing alcohol, unsupervised night activity, low religiosity, and being physically threatened as predictors of binge drinking and problem behavior. Conclusion The lack of differences based on country of origin status points to acculturation as a possible reason for the homogeneity. Further research is needed to study the impact of acculturation as well as monitor the alcohol use patterns and problems of adolescents over time and across locations to address prevailing needs.

  • The Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Depression and Low Self‐Esteem
           in the Context of Pediatric Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME): A Case
    • Authors: Maria Loades
      Abstract: Problem Up to one in three young people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) also has depressive symptoms. It is not known how best to treat young people with this comorbidity. Method This case report seeks to describe and discuss the use of a cognitive behavioral approach for depression and low self‐esteem in a 16‐year‐old girl with CFS/ME. Findings/Conclusion Therapy was effective in remediating the young person's mood difficulties, but appeared to exacerbate their CFS/ME symptoms. Therefore, it is crucial that CFS/ME and mood treatments are designed and trialed to ensure a complementary approach. Good communication and joint working between involved professionals is also important, and ideally, treatments for mood and for CFS/ME would be provided by the same team to facilitate this.

  • Issues Most Important to Parents After Their Children's Suicide Attempt: A
           Pilot Delphi Study
    • Authors: Kari Hickey; Jeanette Rossetti, Jan Strom, Kelly Bryant
      Abstract: Problem Suicide is the third leading cause of death for people aged 15–24 and results in 4,600 lives lost each year. One important risk factor for completed suicide is a nonlethal suicide attempt. To date, little research has been conducted on the needs of parents of adolescents who have made a nonlethal suicide attempt. Methods The goal of this pilot study was to describe the most important concerns of parents whose children have made a nonlethal suicide attempt from the perspective of adolescent mental health professionals. A two‐round Delphi technique was utilized with an interdisciplinary panel of adolescent mental health experts to gain consensus on what issues are most important to parents after their children's suicide attempt. Findings Panelists described the following as most important to parents after their children's nonlethal suicide attempt: keeping their children safe; identifying what caused or triggered the suicide attempt; strategies to prevent another suicide attempt; and communication and building trust for the future. Conclusions An advanced understanding of the issues most important to parents whose children have made a nonlethal suicide attempt has implications for clinicians in creating acceptable and useful interventions aimed at preventing youth suicide.

  • 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
      First page: 121
      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.

  • Family Accommodation of Child and Adolescent Anxiety: Mechanisms,
           Assessment, and Treatment
    • Authors: Kaila R. Norman; Wendy K. Silverman, Eli R. Lebowitz
      First page: 131
      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.

  • An Assessment and Diagnosis Case Study Is Not a Closed Case
    • Authors: Doris M. Van Byssum
      First page: 141
      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.

           Randomized Controlled Pilot Study
    • Authors: Bernadette Mazurek Melnyk; Megan Amaya, Laura A. Szalacha, Jacqueline Hoying, Tiffany Taylor, Kristen Bowersox
      First page: 147
      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.

  • Restraint Reduction at a Pediatric Psychiatric Hospital: A Ten‐Year
    • Abstract: Background Restraints are used as one of the safety interventions for children and adolescents in various community, hospital, and treatment settings. Although considered safety interventions, restraints are known to have many adverse effects on children and staff, including injuries; even reports of death are noted in the literature. Objective In an effort to reduce the use of restraints and to provide trauma‐informed care in a 52‐bed Pediatric Psychiatric Hospital, a quality improvement project was launched. Interventions Primary prevention principles based on trauma‐informed and strength‐based care were utilized to provide care for children and adolescents. Hospital leadership played an instrumental role in bringing positive culture change. Staff involvement and training in restraint reduction and prevention tools played a key role in this project. Debriefing and problem solving were effective interventions for the prevention of restraints. Involvement of youth and family in treatment planning built stronger relationships with staff and paved the way for better communication and trust, and improved understanding of strengths and needs of children and adolescents. Results Over a 10‐year period, mechanical restraints decreased by 100%, from 485 in 2005 to “zero” in 2014 and none in the last 3 years. Physical restraints decreased by 88%, from 3,033 in 2005 to 379 in 2014.
