  • Evidence Supporting the Internal Validity of the Proposed ND-PAE Disorder
    • Authors: Julie A. Kable; Claire D. Coles
      Pages: 163 - 175
      Abstract: The internal validity of the proposed Neurobehavioral Disorder Associated with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (ND-PAE) was evaluated in children diagnosed with either Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) or partial FAS who were 3–10 years of age and had enrolled in a math intervention study. Symptoms were coded as present or absent using assessments conducted in the study, including standardized measures of neurocognitive and behavioral functioning, parent interview, and direct observations of the child. The number of endorsed ND-PAE symptoms was not related to environmental factors but was moderately related to the child’s age. ND-PAE symptoms were highly consistent and this did not vary by age. Evidence suggested the ND-PAE adaptive symptoms may be too restrictive and only one symptom from this domain may be sufficient. Impulsiveness was not related to an endorsement of the ND-PAE disorder but research is needed with other clinical groups to establish the discriminative validity of this symptom.

  • Feminine Discrepancy Stress and Psychosocial Maladjustment Among
           Adolescent Girls
    • Authors: Dennis E. Reidy; Poco D. Kernsmith; Carolyn A. Malone; Alana M. Vivolo-Kantor; Joanne P. Smith-Darden
      Pages: 176 - 186
      Abstract: Discrepancy stress, stress about being perceived to not conform to one’s gender role (i.e., gender role discrepancy), has demonstrated effects on risky sexual and violent behaviors. However, evidence of these effects has been limited to men and boys, neglecting the impact gender role discrepancy and discrepancy stress may have on girls. In addition, no study to date, has assessed the mental health correlates of gender role discrepancy and discrepancy stress. In the current study, we sought to elucidate the relationship between perceived feminine discrepancy and feminine discrepancy stress and psychosocial maladjustment while controlling for trauma symptoms stemming from the potential repercussions of feminine discrepancy. Maladjustment was measured by creating a second-order latent factor derived from four first-order latent constructs: sexual behavior, substance use, mood disorder symptoms, and hopelessness. Data are drawn from a cross-sectional sample of female students in middle and high school (N = 643) who completed self-report questionnaires. Using structural equation modeling, we found girls reporting feminine discrepancy (i.e., less feminine than the average girl) were more likely to report feminine discrepancy stress and trauma symptomatology. Controlling for feminine discrepancy and trauma symptoms, the relationship between discrepancy stress and maladjustment was positive and significant. Additionally, girls reporting feminine discrepancy scored higher on trauma symptomatology, and trauma demonstrated a strong direct effect on psychosocial maladjustment. These data suggest that developing trauma focused prevention strategies that incorporate social norms around gender socialization may have an impact on multiple behavioral and mental health problems.

  • Anxiety Sensitivity Moderates the Relation Between Family Accommodation
           and Anxiety Symptom Severity in Clinically Anxious Children
    • Authors: Jessica L. Schleider; Eli R. Lebowitz; Wendy K. Silverman
      Pages: 187 - 196
      Abstract: High levels of family accommodation (FA), or parental involvement in child symptoms, are associated with child anxiety symptom severity. The strength of associations has varied across studies, however, highlighting the need to identify moderating variables. We investigated whether anxiety sensitivity (AS) moderated the FA-anxiety symptom severity association in clinically anxious children (N = 103, ages 6–17; mean age 11.07 years). We collected child and mother ratings of FA, child anxiety symptom severity, and child AS ratings. AS significantly moderated the FA-child anxiety severity link. Specifically, this link was significant for low-AS but not high-AS children. Findings suggest that FA may operate in the typically observed fashion for low-AS children—alleviating immediate distress while inadvertently exacerbating longer-term anxiety—whereas high-AS children may experience distress following anxiety-provoking stimuli regardless of FA. Assessing AS in research and clinical settings may help identify subsets of children for whom FA is more closely tied to anxiety severity.

  • Proactive and Reactive Aggression Subgroups in Typically Developing
           Children: The Role of Executive Functioning, Psychophysiology, and
           Psychopathy
    • Authors: Nicholas D. Thomson; Luna C. M. Centifanti
      Pages: 197 - 208
      Abstract: This study aimed to assess whether groups of aggressive children differed on psychopathic traits, and neuropsychological and neurobiological measures of prefrontal functioning consistent with the objectives of their aggression—reactive or proactive. Including 110 typically developing children (9–11 years), a latent class analysis identified a low aggression group, a high reactive aggression group, and a mixed (high reactive and proactive) aggression group. Results show high callous–unemotional traits and low resting respiratory sinus arrhythmia increased the likelihood of children being in the mixed aggression group, when compared to the reactive and low aggression groups. However, deficits in planning and inhibitory control increased the likelihood of children being in the reactive aggression group, when compared to the mixed and low aggression groups. Executive functioning deficits did not differentiate the mixed group from the low aggression group. These findings highlight psychobiological and executive functioning differences that may explain heterogeneity in childhood aggression.

  • Examining the Relationship Between Parent and Child Psychopathology in
           Treatment-Seeking Veterans
    • Authors: Alyson K. Zalta; Eric Bui; Niranjan S. Karnik; Philip Held; Lauren M. Laifer; Julia C. Sager; Denise Zou; Paula K. Rauch; Naomi M. Simon; Mark H. Pollack; Bonnie Ohye
      Pages: 209 - 216
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine: (1) the relationship between parental psychopathology and child psychopathology in military families and (2) parenting sense of competence as a mediator of the relationship between veteran psychopathology and child psychopathology. As part of their standard clinical evaluations, 215 treatment-seeking veterans who reported having a child between the ages of 4 and 17 were assessed for psychopathology (posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and stress), their sense of competence as a parent, and their child’s psychopathology (internalizing, externalizing, and attentional symptoms). A path analysis model examining parenting sense of competence as a mediator of the relationship between veteran psychopathology and child psychopathology showed significant indirect effects of veteran depression on all child psychopathology outcomes via parenting sense of competence. Parental sense of competence may be a critical mechanism linking veteran depression and child psychopathology, and may therefore be an important target for intervention.

  • An Adapted Measure of Sibling Attachment: Factor Structure and Internal
           Consistency of the Sibling Attachment Inventory in Youth
    • Authors: Valerie A. Noel; Sarah E. Francis; Micah A. Tilley
      Pages: 217 - 224
      Abstract: Parent-youth and peer relationship inventories based on attachment theory measure communication, trust, and alienation, yet sibling relationships have been overlooked. We developed the Sibling Attachment Inventory and evaluated its psychometric properties in a sample of 172 youth ages 10–14 years. We adapted the 25-item Sibling Attachment Inventory from the Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment-Revised peer measure. Items loaded onto three factors, identified as communication, trust, and alienation, α = 0.93, 0.90, and 0.76, respectively. Sibling trust and alienation correlated with depression (r s  = −0.33, r s  = 0.48) and self-worth (r s  = 0.23; r s  = −0.32); sibling trust and alienation correlated with depression after controlling for parent trust and parent alienation (r s  = −0.23, r s  = 0.22). Preliminary analyses showed good internal consistency, construct validity, and incremental predictive validity. Following replication of these properties, this measure can facilitate large cohort assessments of sibling attachment.

  • Gender Specific Characteristics of Revolving Door Adolescents in Acute
           Psychiatric Inpatient Care
    • Authors: Noora Similä; Helinä Hakko; Pirkko Riipinen; Kaisa Riala
      Pages: 225 - 233
      Abstract: This study examined the impact of clinical and family related factors on adolescent revolving door (RD) phenomenon, defined as having three or more psychiatric hospitalizations before the age of 18. A clinical sample of adolescents (N = 508) aged 13–17 years, admitted to psychiatric inpatient care between April 2001 through March 2006, were interviewed using the k-SADS-PL and the EuropASI instruments. The national Finnish Care Register for Health Care provided life-time data on child and adolescent psychiatric inpatient hospitalizations. RD boys were shown to be significantly more likely than non-RD boys to be admitted to psychiatric inpatient care from child welfare placements and have previous self-mutilative behavior (SMB) and suicide attempts. RD girls were more likely to come from child welfare placements, have unemployed mothers and a history of SMB. Mortality in RD boys was significantly higher compared to non-RD boys. Frequent use of psychiatric inpatient care warrants comprehensive assessment of suicidal behavior in adolescents.

  • The Validity of the Screen for Child Anxiety Related Emotional Disorders
           Revised (SCARED-R) Scale and Sub-Scales in Swedish Youth
    • Authors: Tord Ivarsson; Gudmundur Skarphedinsson; Markus Andersson; Håkan Jarbin
      Pages: 234 - 243
      Abstract: We evaluated the clinical utility of the Swedish SCARED-R in child- and adolescent psychiatric outpatients (n = 239) and validated it against Longitudinal Expert All Data (LEAD) DSM IV diagnoses based on the Children’s Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia (KSADS) and subsequent clinical work-up and treatment outcome. The SCARED-R total score and subscales had acceptable sensitivity/specificity for child and parent reports for cut-offs based on Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curves, with mostly moderate area under the curve. Sensitivity ranged from 75% (parent rated social anxiety) to 79% [child rated Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)]. Specificity, ranged from 60% for child-rated GAD to 88% for parent rated social anxiety. Parent-child agreement was moderate, and each informant provided unique information contributing to most diagnoses. In conclusion, the SCARED-R is useful for screening anxiety symptoms in clinical populations. However, it cannot replace interview based diagnoses, nor is it adequate to use just one informant.

  • Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Parent Group Interventions for
           Primary School Children Aged 4–12 Years with Externalizing and/or
           Internalizing Problems
    • Authors: Sarah Buchanan-Pascall; Kylie M. Gray; Michael Gordon; Glenn A. Melvin
      Pages: 244 - 267
      Abstract: This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluates the efficacy of parent training group interventions to treat child externalizing and/or internalizing problems. A search identified 21 randomized controlled trials of parent group interventions aimed at ameliorating child externalizing and/or internalizing problems in children aged 4–12 years. Random effects meta-analyses yielded significant pooled treatment effect size (g) estimates for child externalizing (g = −0.38) and internalizing problems (g = −0.18). Child anxiety symptoms or internalizing problems evident in children with externalizing behavior problems did not change significantly following intervention. Study quality was a statistically significant moderator of treatment response for child externalizing problems, however hours of planned parent group treatment and treatment recipient were not. Findings support the use of parent group interventions as an effective treatment for reducing externalizing problems in children aged 4–12 years. Whilst statistically significant, programs had a limited impact on internalizing symptoms, indicating a need for further investigation.

  • Shame on Me! Self-Conscious Emotions and Big Five Personality Traits and
           Their Relations to Anxiety Disorders Symptoms in Young, Non-Clinical
           Adolescents
    • Authors: Peter Muris; Cor Meesters; Mike van Asseldonk
      Pages: 268 - 278
      Abstract: This study explored the relations between self-conscious emotions, personality traits, and anxiety disorders symptoms in non-clinical youths. One-hundred-and-eighteen adolescents aged 12–15 years completed the brief shame and guilt questionnaire for children (BSGQ-C) and items of the youth self-report (YSR) to measure shame and guilt, the big five personality questionnaire for children, and the youth anxiety measure for DSM-5. Results for shame indicated that this self-conscious emotion—either measured by the BSGQ-C or the YSR—was uniquely and positively associated with a broad range of anxiety disorders symptoms, and correlated positively with neuroticism and negatively with extraversion. Guilt did not show significant associations with anxiety disorders symptoms once controlling for the influence of shame, and links with personality traits varied dependent on the assessment instrument that was used (BSGQ-C or YSR). Finally, when controlling for neuroticism and extraversion, shame consistently remained a significant correlate of anxiety disorders symptoms. Altogether, these results add to the growing body of evidence indicating that high levels of shame are clearly associated with anxiety pathology.

      Abstract: The present study aims to validate the interRAI Child and Youth Mental Health (interRAI ChYMH), Disruptive/Aggression Behaviour Scale (DABS) and Hyperactive/Distraction Scale (HDS). Data were collected from children/youth aged 4–18 (N = 3464) across 39 mental health agencies in Ontario, Canada. Unrestricted factor analysis using polychoric correlation matrices and Samejima’s graded item response theory (IRT) parameterizations were conducted for both measures. Scores on the HDS and DABS were also compared amongst children/youth diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and disruptive behaviour disorder (DBD) respectively using DSM-IV criteria. Results from the factor analysis and IRT analysis demonstrated good measurement properties. Using a receiver operating characteristics curve, the area under the curve (AUC) for the HDS and DABS is 0.79 and 0.75 for a diagnosis of ADHD and DBD respectively. Overall, converging results suggest that the interRAI HDS and DABS may serve as effective measures that detect externalizing mental health indicators.

  • Perceived Police Injustice, Moral Disengagement, and Aggression Among
           Juvenile Offenders: Utilizing the General Strain Theory Model
    • Authors: Tamika C. B. Zapolski; Devin E. Banks; Katherine S. L. Lau; Matthew C. Aalsma
      Pages: 290 - 297
      Abstract: Although many juvenile offenders report experiencing police injustice, few studies have examined how this source of strain may impact youths’ behavioral outcomes, including risk for future recidivism. This study begins to address that gap in the literature. We applied the general strain theory as our theoretical framework to examine the interactive effect of perceived police injustice and moral disengagement on juvenile aggressive behavior. Our sample included 95 juvenile offenders who completed questionnaires on measures of perceived police injustice and moral disengagement. Results supported our hypothesis, such that moral disengagement predicted past month aggression among juvenile offenders, but only by youth who reported mean and high levels of perceived police injustice. While more research is needed in this area, this study’s findings underscore the need to address both perceived police engagement and moral disengagement among youth at-risk of engaging in delinquent behaviors. Implications for intervention programs are also presented.

  • Boys with Oppositional Defiant Disorder/Conduct Disorder Show Impaired
           Adaptation During Stress: An Executive Functioning Study
    • Authors: Jantiene Schoorl; Sophie van Rijn; Minet de Wied; Stephanie van Goozen; Hanna Swaab
      Pages: 298 - 307
      Abstract: Evidence for problems in executive functioning (EF) in children with oppositional defiant disorder/conduct disorder (ODD/CD) is mixed and the impact stress may have on EF is understudied. Working memory, sustained attention, inhibition and cognitive flexibility of boys with ODD/CD (n = 65) and non-clinical controls (n = 32) were examined under typical and stressful test conditions. Boys with ODD/CD showed impaired working memory under typical testing conditions, and impairments in working memory and sustained attention under stressful conditions. In contrast to controls, performance on sustained attention, cognitive flexibility and inhibition was less influenced by stress in boys with ODD/CD. These results suggest that boys with ODD/CD show impairments in adaptation to the environment whereas typically developing boys show adaptive changes in EF.

  • Children’s and Parents’ Ability to Tolerate Child Distress: Impact on
           Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
    • Authors: Robert R. Selles; Martin Franklin; Jeffrey Sapyta; Scott N. Compton; Doug Tommet; Richard N. Jones; Abbe Garcia; Jennifer Freeman
      Pages: 308 - 316
      Abstract: The present study explored the concept of tolerance for child distress in 46 children (ages 5–8), along with their mothers and fathers, who received family-based CBT for OCD. The study sought to describe baseline tolerance, changes in tolerance with treatment, and the predictive impact of tolerance on symptom improvement. Tolerance was rated by clinicians on a single item and the CY-BOCS was used to measure OCD severity. Descriptive results suggested that all participants had some difficulty tolerating the child’s distress at baseline while paired t tests indicated large improvements were made over treatment (d = 1.2–2.0). Fathers’ initial tolerance was significantly related to symptom improvement in a multivariate regression as were fathers’ and children’s changes in distress tolerance over the course of treatment. Overall, results provide support for examining tolerance of child distress including its predictive impact and potential as a supplemental intervention target.

  • Play-Modified One-Session Treatment for Young Children with a Specific
           Phobia of Dogs: A Multiple Baseline Case Series
    • Authors: Lara J. Farrell; Helen Kershaw; Thomas Ollendick
      Pages: 317 - 329
      Abstract: The one-session treatment (OST) approach for SPs is deemed well-established, and has been found to be highly effective for older children and adults; however, has not yet been trialled with very young children. The present study examines the preliminary effectiveness of play-modified OST for young children with a SP of dogs, using a multiple baseline controlled case series design. Treatment involved play modified one-session of intensive cognitive-behavioural therapy (OST plus Play) which was followed by brief telephone delivered maintenance calls over the 3 weeks immediately following treatment. Four young children (4 years of age) participated and symptoms were assessed at pre-treatment, across a 1–3 week baseline phase, immediately following the OST plus Play, and at 1 and 3 months follow-up. Visual inspection provided evidence for stability of symptoms across the baseline phase, followed by reductions in symptoms over the course of treatment and follow-up. Non-parametric analyses offered further support, with significant improvements in following the intensive OST plus Play intervention.

  • The Effect of Neurocognitive Function on Math Computation in Pediatric
           ADHD: Moderating Influences of Anxious Perfectionism and Gender
    • Authors: Alexandra Sturm; Michelle Rozenman; John C. Piacentini; James J. McGough; Sandra K. Loo; James T. McCracken
      Abstract: Predictors of math achievement in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are not well-known. To address this gap in the literature, we examined individual differences in neurocognitive functioning domains on math computation in a cross-sectional sample of youth with ADHD. Gender and anxiety symptoms were explored as potential moderators. The sample consisted of 281 youth (aged 8–15 years) diagnosed with ADHD. Neurocognitive tasks assessed auditory-verbal working memory, visuospatial working memory, and processing speed. Auditory-verbal working memory speed significantly predicted math computation. A three-way interaction revealed that at low levels of anxious perfectionism, slower processing speed predicted poorer math computation for boys compared to girls. These findings indicate the uniquely predictive values of auditory-verbal working memory and processing speed on math computation, and their differential moderation. These findings provide preliminary support that gender and anxious perfectionism may influence the relationship between neurocognitive functioning and academic achievement.

  • The Parent Sensitivity to Child Anxiety Index
    • Authors: Karl Wissemann; Julia Y. Gorday; Alexandria Meyer
      Abstract: Anxiety sensitivity (AS) is the perception that anxiety symptoms and experiences have negative consequences, and has been identified as a risk factor for the development of anxiety disorders. AS has been measured in adults and in children, but to date, the construct of parent’s sensitivity to their children’s anxiety symptoms has not been identified, measured, or evaluated. The current study presents a novel measure of this construct, the Parent Sensitivity to Child Anxiety Index (PSCAI), and an initial evaluation of its psychometric properties. Factor analysis revealed a three-factor structure consisting of parents’ concern for physical symptoms, concern of social evaluation, and fear of anxiety symptoms. The PSCAI demonstrated good internal consistency, and was positively correlated with relevant parental constructs such as parental accommodation, anxiety sensitivity, and trait anxiety. This new measurement system opens new avenues for researching the early development of anxiety disorders and the possibility for novel targeted interventions.

  • Changes in Emotional and Behavioral Problems Between 2000 and 2011 Among
           16-Year-Old Polish Children: A Cross-Sectional Study
    • Authors: Ł. Konowałek; T. Wolanczyk
      Abstract: Since after the second world war there has been an increasing number of studies investigating secular changes in adolescent mental health. Although no general trends could be outlined, the majority of studies show at least partial deterioration of psychological wellbeing from year 2000 on. Our study adds to this knowledge by exploring changes in self-declared emotional and behavioral problems in Poland, which is a part of post-communist Europe. In this paper, we compared responses on the Youth Self-Report by Polish 16-year-olds from 2000 and those from 2011. Two independent samples consisted of 259 (year 2000) and 185 (year 2011) 16-year-olds of both genders, drawn from randomized, normative, school-based groups. We analyzed linear, ordinal and binary logistic regression models. The results revealed that teenagers from 2011 reported more self-rated internalizing and total problems. Social and thought problems also rose significantly. Gender related time trends hint at a male increase in externalizing, aggressive behaviors and anxiety/depression. Caseness rose significantly in most scales with female gender being an additional risk factor for internalizing and total problems. No reduction in self-reported emotional and behavioral problems was detected.

  • Socioeconomically Disadvantaged Adolescents with Elevated Externalizing
           Symptoms Show Heightened Emotion Reactivity to Daily Stress: An Experience
           Sampling Study
    • Authors: Bep Uink; Kathryn Lynn Modecki; Bonnie L. Barber; Helen M. Correia
      Abstract: Numerous theories assert that youth with externalizing symptomatology experience intensified emotion reactivity to stressful events; yet scant empirical research has assessed this notion. Using in-vivo data collected via experience sampling methodology, we assessed whether externalizing symptoms conditioned adolescents’ emotion reactivity to daily stressors (i.e. change in emotion pre-post stressor) among 206 socioeconomically disadvantaged adolescents. We also assessed whether higher externalizing symptomology was associated with experiencing more stressors overall, and whether adolescents’ emotional upheavals resulted in experiencing a subsequent stressor. Hierarchical linear models showed that adolescents higher in externalizing symptoms experienced stronger emotion reactivity in sadness, anger, jealously, loneliness, and (dips in) excitement. Externalizing symptomatology was not associated with more stressful events, but a stress-preventative effect was found for recent upheavals in jealousy among youth low in externalizing. Findings pinpoint intense emotion reactivity to daily stress as a risk factor for youth with externalizing symptoms living in socioeconomic disadvantage.
