  • Problem Behaviors of Children Adopted From the Former Soviet Union
    • Authors: Cheryl B. Robinson; Teena M. McGuinness, Andres Azuero, Leona Pallansch
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this article is to report the results of behavioral assessments collected at three time points of a cohort of children adopted from the former Soviet Union with particular emphasis on the impact of the adoptive family on problem behaviors. Problem Families adopting from the former USSR are concerned about the influence of pre‐adoptive circumstances on their child's future health. Methods The study utilized data gathered in 1998 when the children's mean age was close to 8 years, in 2001 when the children were entering early adolescence, and in 2006 when the average age of the children was just over 15 years. The authors hypothesized that the negative impact of risk factors decreases over time, and that a family environment that is stable and supportive is inversely related to problem behaviors. The Child Behavior Checklist, the Family Environment Scale, and a parental report form were used for data collection. Findings Significant relationships between family environment and problem behaviors over time were found, with lower levels of conflict and higher levels of cohesion associated to lower problem behaviors. Being female does contribute to problem behavior with the passage of time. Conclusion Although the magnitude of these effects was small to moderate, a protective family environment may assist in decreasing problem behaviors.

  • Military Deployment and Reintegration: A Systematic Review of Child Coping
    • Authors: Cindy F. Bello‐Utu; Janiece E. DeSocio
      Abstract: Topic Child coping with parent military deployment and family reintegration. Purpose A systematic review of research literature was conducted to examine the effects of deployment and family reintegration on children in military families. Sources Used A search of CINAHL, PubMed, Psyc‐INFO, and SocINDEX databases was performed using the terms “military family,” “military child,” “child coping,” “deployment,” and “reintegration.” The search was limited to publications between 2001 and 2014 to focus on the effects of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation New Dawn (OND). Twenty‐seven research reports met inclusion criteria. Conclusions Three themes were extracted: A child's coping is influenced by (a) the child's age and development, (b) the mental health and coping of the non‐deployed parent during deployment, and the mental health of both parents during family reintegration, and (c) the pre‐existing resilience/vulnerability, cumulative risks, and resources of the child and family.

  • The Role of Family Phenomena in Children and Adolescents With Attention
           Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
    • Authors: Cynthia P. Paidipati; Janet A. Deatrick
      Pages: n/a - n/a
      Abstract: Topic Previous research suggests that families are integral to the understanding of children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Purpose The purpose of this article is to identify family phenomena related to children and adolescents with ADHD and highlight research findings that intersect family phenomena with the care and treatment of ADHD in youth. Sources A literature review was conducted at the University of Pennsylvania in spring of 2014 using an online library system. The four major databases utilized are Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Ovid Medline, Scopus, and Psyc‐INFO. Conclusions A wide array of family‐related concepts are identified in the literature and represent a multifaceted and dynamic range of family phenomena related to ADHD youth. Four major themes emerged in the literature, including family stress and strain, parenting practices and caregiver health, family relationships, and family processes related to ADHD management. Different cultural and ethnic groups are reflected in the studies, but the majority of participants are self‐identified Caucasian. As a collective, the research findings suggest family‐related phenomena are essential and relevant to the investigation of children and adolescents with ADHD and worthwhile to explore in future research endeavors, especially in diverse populations.

      Abstract: Problem Little is known about how adolescent mothers use social media and the Internet, especially to access health information. Methods In this cross‐sectional, descriptive study, adolescent mothers were recruited from an academic medical center after the birth of their child (n = 94) or from a state‐funded, home visitation program during the first year after birth (n = 91). They completed the Pew Internet Survey: 37 questions related to use of social media and Internet, particularly in regard to obtaining health information. Findings All adolescent mothers used a computer and almost all went online. Most accessed the Internet by cell phone (67.4%) and used social media. The health topics searched most frequently were pregnancy/birth control (85.8%), sexually transmitted diseases (n = 134, 72.6%) and HIV (66.3%). Response to survey questions differed between the two groups (adolescent mothers surveyed after birth from academic medical center and adolescent mothers surveyed in the first postpartum year in the community). Conclusions Adolescent mothers spend significant time on the Internet including searching for health information. Cell phones are their preferred methods for accessing the Internet, and they use social media. Thus, social media and the Internet are potentially feasible and acceptable vehicles to deliver health interventions to adolescent mothers.

  • Reducing Seclusion and Restraint During Child and Adolescent Inpatient
           Treatment: Still an Underdeveloped Area of Research
    • Authors: Marije Valenkamp; Kathleen Delaney, Fop Verheij
      First page: 169
      Abstract: Problem Half of all youth hospitalized in inpatient psychiatric facilities manifest aggressive behavior. When aggression escalates to the point of danger, measures must be employed to guarantee safety of both patients and staff. In this paper, the current empirical evidence for intervention models to reduce restriction and restraint utilization in children and adolescents is reviewed. Method PubMed and PsycINFO were searched for English‐language articles published between 2006 and 2013. Included were empirical studies of child or adolescent inpatient populations using a pretest and posttest design. Finding Included in this review are three empirical papers describing two different intervention models that met the inclusion criteria. Conclusions The review indicates there are two empirical supported intervention models that are helpful in reducing seclusion and restraint utilization in children and adolescents. The promising empirical findings support evidence and application to the child/adolescent population for at least three of the six National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors core strategies for restraint reduction. The modest number of empirical papers reflects that reducing restrictive measures in child/adolescent inpatient treatment remains an underdeveloped area of research.

  • Effects of Yoga on Patients in an Adolescent Mental Health Hospital and
           the Relationship Between Those Effects and the Patients'
           Sensory‐Processing Patterns
    • Authors: Pamela Re; John W. McConnell, Gloria Reidinger, Ronnie Schweit, Angela Hendron
      First page: 175
      Abstract: Problem This study investigated the effects of yoga as a sensory regulation tool in reducing adolescent distress in an acute care psychiatric hospital. Methods This was a descriptive, correlational pre‐intervention/post‐intervention design conducted in a mental health hospital over 5 months from mid‐January to mid‐June 2012. The population consisted of a convenience sample of 75 adolescent mental health unit inpatients and partial‐hospitalization patients 12–18 years of age who participated in two or more yoga sessions. Patient charts provided Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders‐IV Axes I‐V diagnosis, gender, and age. Dependent variables were pulse and Subjective Units of Disturbance Scale scores, which were recorded before and after each yoga class. The Adult/Adolescent Sensory Profile provided a measure of patient sensory‐processing preference levels that were related to the pulse and Subjective Units of Disturbance Scale results. Findings Yoga sessions significantly improved patient pulse and self‐reported distress ratings regardless of gender or sensory profile levels. Conclusions This article contributes to research on the therapeutic effects of yoga as a sensory regulation intervention in the treatment of psychiatrically hospitalized adolescents. Yoga has the potential to help adolescents in an acute care psychiatric hospital learn to soothe themselves, to regulate their emotions, and to find relief from emotional distress while hospitalized.

  • Improving the Culture of Safety on a High‐Acuity Inpatient
           Child/Adolescent Psychiatric Unit by Mindfulness‐Based Stress
           Reduction Training of Staff
    • Authors: Ilze S. Hallman; Nancy O'Connor, Susan Hasenau, Stephanie Brady
      First page: 183
      Abstract: Problem The purpose of this study was to reduce perceived levels of interprofessional staff stress and to improve patient and staff safety by implementing a brief mindfulness‐based stress reduction (MBSR) training program on a high‐acuity psychiatric inpatient unit. Methods A one‐group repeated measure design was utilized to measure the impact of the (MBSR) training program on staff stress and safety immediately post‐training and at 2 months. Two instruments were utilized in the study: the Toronto Mindfulness Scale and the Perceived Stress Scale. Findings The MBSR program reduced staff stress across the 2‐month post‐training period and increased staff mindfulness immediately following the brief training period of 8 days, and across the 2‐month post‐training period. A trend toward positive impact on patient and staff safety was also seen in a decreased number of staff call‐ins, decreased need for 1:1 staffing episodes, and decreased restraint use 2 months following the training period. Conclusions A brief MBSR training program offered to an interprofessional staff of a high‐acuity inpatient adolescent psychiatric unit was effective in decreasing their stress, increasing their mindfulness, and improving staff and patient safety.

  • Facilitating Access to Effective and Appropriate Care for Youth With Mild
           to Moderate Mental Health Concerns in New Zealand
    • Authors: Terryann Coralie Clark; Elizabeth Anne Johnson, Maria Kekus, John Newman, Preekesh Suresh Patel, Theresa Fleming, Elizabeth Robinson
      First page: 190
      Abstract: Problem Youth with mild–moderate mental health concerns often go unrecognized, and find access to and the navigation of support services difficult. Methods A quasi‐experimental pre‐/postintervention design was used to explore the impact of facilitated access to free counseling support using the following outcome measures: Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), Substance Abuse Choices Scale (SACS), Children's Global Assessment Scale (C‐GAS), alongside consumer feedback questionnaires. Findings A total of 581 culturally diverse youth aged 10–24 completed the intervention. Those who completed reported significant improvements in global social and psychiatric functioning measured by C‐GAS (p < .001); reduced risk of clinically significant mental health concerns measured by SDQ (p < .001); and reductions in the use and impact of drugs/alcohol measured by SACS (p < .001). Participants and their families/whānau reported that the interventions were safe and appropriate, with perceived increased skill development around coping and communication. Conclusions This intervention appears to be an effective and acceptable strategy, particularly for Māori youth and those from lower socioeconomic groups, to reduce mild to moderate mental health symptoms and concerns. This approach could be replicated by other communities wishing to reduce mental health burden for youth by facilitating access to free, culturally appropriate, and accessible counseling via a multidisciplinary and collaborative triage approach.

  • Mindfulness‐Based Psychoeducation for Parents of Children With
           Attention‐Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: An Applied Clinical
    • Abstract: Topic Attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects more than 5 million American children; the likelihood of their parents experiencing stress is high, which may lead to negative outcomes. Mindful parenting is a parent training modality that teaches compassion, listening, and creative engagement with one's child, and has been shown to be effective in decreasing levels of parental stress. Purpose An 8‐week evidence‐based applied clinical project (N = 7) was designed to answer the question: In parents of children with the diagnosis of ADHD, or exhibiting ADHD traits, what is the effect of providing mindful parenting psychoeducation in addition to standard of care treatment on levels of parental stress post intervention' Sources Used An exhaustive literature search was performed using the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, the Cochrane Library, Psyc‐INFO, and PubMed. Conclusions Outcomes were measured using the Parenting Stress Index, Fourth Edition Short Form (PSI‐4‐SF). Scores on the Total Stress scale decreased significantly after 8 weeks (p = .018); a significant decrease also occurred across two of the three PSI‐4‐SF subscales (Parental Distress and Parent‐Child Dysfunctional Interaction). Recommendations for practice change, suggestions for future clinical inquiry, and project limitations are discussed.
