  • Coaching to improve mealtime parenting in treating pediatric obesity.
    • Abstract: Childhood obesity is a significant public health concern, with about 17% of children in the United States reported as obese (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2012a). Family Mealtime Coaching (FMC) is a live coaching intervention using positive psychology interventions and modeling to improve mealtime parenting, child behavior and weight status, and parent–child communication. The purpose of this study was to examine how parent coaching affects feeding practices and pediatric obesity in 2 to 10 year olds. We used a pre-/postexperimental design comparing treatment assessments of children and their caregivers participating in FMC. Caregivers (N = 51) consented to participate in the study. Only those participants with at least 2 measurements of height and weight from which BMI could be calculated (N = 43) were included. The children averaged 6.96 years of age (SD = 2.7), ranging between 2 and 11 years of age, and 58% were female. The large majority were Latino (84%). Children’s baseline body mass index (BMI) averaged at the 97.3 percentile (SD = 3.4), and waist circumference averaged 78.02 cm. Results of analyses showed that children entering treatment within the upper limits of BMI percentile (i.e., 97th percentile or higher) were more likely to complete treatment and showed a significant reduction in BMI z score. The intervention also yielded significant increases in family style serving, intuitive eating, and mealtime communication; reduced maladaptive feeding comments among parents; and decreased problematic mealtime behaviors in the children. These findings suggest a promising empirical basis for using coaching to reshape feeding-related parent–child interactions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Transitioning to self-care for children with chronic illnesses: The
           challenge of developmental timing and parental buy-in: Commentary on
           Bruni, Lancaster, and Kullgren (2017).
    • Abstract: Comments on the case study by T. P. Bruni et al. (see record 2017-12014-001) of an outpatient pediatric psychology patient with spina bifida-myelomeningocele who resisted self-catheterization. This case captures the difficulties experienced when adolescents with chronic illnesses begin taking over care their own activities of daily living. This comment focuses on two points that stand out for the author with this case. First, the developmental timing of taking over self-care and, second, parental buy-in for interventions stand out as relevant discussion points for this case.

  • Ethical considerations and treatment decision making when parental
           adherence difficulties impact treatment outcomes: Comment on Bruni,
           Lancaster, and Kullgren (2017).
    • Abstract: The case study presented in “How the interaction between parent and child can lead to non-adherence: A case study of self-catheterization” exemplifies the complexity of treatment decision making when intervention progress is impacted by difficulties with parental adherence. When parents do not adhere to treatment recommendations, a variety of clinical and ethical factors are important to consider in determining how to proceed. This commentary discusses factors relevant to this treatment decision-making process, including the family’s commitment to treatment, barriers to treatment, and whether termination should be considered.

  • The clinical challenge of adolescent grief: Comment on Zakreski (2017).
    • Abstract: Comments on the case study by M. J. Zakreski (see record 2017-17054-001) involving the treatment of complicated grief in a teenager with autism. This case highlights a hard truth that clinicians who work with bereaved children struggle with frequently—to date, there remains a lack of empirically validated, evidence-based interventions for grieving children. Overall, the role of clinicians should not be to try to help this patient move past her grief but rather to help her learn how to function more effectively in her life alongside it. The role of clinicians should be to help her father understand that, although it is difficult to see her struggle in her grief, clinicians can still work to support her in that struggle.

  • Treating complicated grief in a teenager with autism: Comment on Zakreski
    • Abstract: The objective of this commentary is to provide a case conceptualization framework for a challenging case involving an adolescent presenting with symptoms of autism spectrum disorder, exposure to trauma, and traumatic grief with lack of treatment response after approximately 9 months. Consideration of the multiple factors that contribute to adaptive and maladaptive responses to the loss highlights additional treatment approaches that may be helpful in challenging cases involving complex grief. Additionally, modifications to traditional cognitive–behavioral therapy-based approaches that encourage response to treatment in children with autism spectrum disorders are also discussed.

  • Ethical considerations in the care of children with life-limiting
           conditions: A case illustration of the role of a pediatric psychologist on
           a hospital ethics committee.
    • Abstract: Recent advances in neonatal medicine have led to increased survival rates in children with life-limiting diseases. The care of these children often involves ethical questions regarding the potential risks and benefits of prolonging life through increasingly invasive procedures, or forgoing interventions, in the best interest of the child, in order to limit their possible suffering. This article presents current ethical guidelines that can inform the care of such children. Additionally, the important role of pediatric ethics committees in facilitating family centered care is discussed. Finally, a case illustration is included with the aim of describing how a pediatric psychologist, who is integrated into an ethics committee, can promote joint decision-making, as well as serve in an important consultative role to medical teams to facilitate collaborative and compassionate care.

  • Parent–child behavioral interactions during pediatric immunizations
           in a Latino sample.
    • Abstract: A number of studies have found that specific parent behaviors are strong predictors of child medical procedural distress or coping. These findings have informed treatment protocols to lower children’s distress during invasive medical events. However, the vast majority of this research has been conducted on predominately North American, English-speaking, Caucasian samples. One growing population that faces health care disparities is Latinos living in the United States. The purpose of this study was to explore the types and frequencies of parent and child behavior, as well as the association between parent behavior and child distress and coping in a sample of Spanish-speaking Latino American parent–child dyads. Nineteen 4- to 6-year-old Latino children receiving routine immunizations and their parents were video recorded, and behaviors were coded with commonly used schemes. The findings suggest that there may be differences in Latino parent and child behavior when compared to the extant—predominately English-speaking, Caucasian North American—literature. This study provides an initial examination of how cultural constructs may relate to parent–child behavior in Spanish-speaking Latino families in the United States. Future research is warranted as findings can inform culturally sensitive clinical practice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Behavioral treatment for aerophagia in a typically developing 3-year-old.
    • Abstract: Aerophagia is a functional gastrointestinal disorder involving swallowing excessive air, which is associated with gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and interference with dietary intake most commonly diagnosed among individuals with intellectual disabilities. Aerophagia is less common in typically developing children with gastrointestinal complaints and there is little previous research on successful behavioral interventions with this population. This case report illustrates an integrated behavioral approach to treating aerophagia in a typically developing 3-year-old with aerophagia that involved swallowing of emergent eructation. The family initially presented to an outpatient pediatric gastroenterology clinic. After diagnosis, the pediatric gastroenterologist referred the family to the integrated pediatric psychology service for behavioral intervention. Intake and intervention were brief, occurring over 3 outpatient sessions. Intervention included psychoeducation, selection of alternative behaviors incompatible with air swallowing, parental modeling, and systematic reinforcement. These procedures were feasible and acceptable for the family and referring provider and resulted in symptom remittance after 3 sessions, maintained at 6-month follow-up.

  • Quality of life for youth with persistent postconcussive symptoms
           following mild traumatic brain injury.
    • Abstract: The primary aim of this study was to characterize parent- and youth-reported health-related quality of life (HRQOL) for youth experiencing persistent symptoms following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The youth in the current study were participating in a longitudinal project examining neuropsychological consultation as an intervention for persistent symptoms after mTBI. Participants included 71 youth aged 8 to17 years old who had sustained mild head injuries 2 to 12 months prior to enrollment and who were referred clinically to an outpatient pediatric concussion program because of concerns about persistent problems. Parents and children completed the PedsQL over the phone at the time of enrollment. Child- and parent-reported HRQOL was significantly worse than for other pediatric populations with a variety of chronic health conditions. HRQOL was not associated with injury-related factors. One important novel finding was that families involved in litigation reported significantly lower HRQOL than families not involved in litigation. Providers would benefit from screening for involvement in litigation early on. Children who experience persistent symptomatology and impaired functioning following mTBI are likely to benefit most from early intervention and reassurance de-emphasizing injury-related factors and focusing on cognitive–behavioral treatment aimed at improving adaptive coping, pain management, and stress reduction.

  • Behavioral parent training groups for ADHD in clinical settings: Does
           offering a concurrent child group add value'
    • Abstract: There is strong evidence for the efficacy of behavioral parent training (BPT) for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, BPT can be difficult to access in many communities, which may be due to practical considerations including whether to offer concurrent child groups. Few studies have specifically examined whether concurrent child treatment is beneficial for ADHD—particularly in real-world clinical settings (i.e., not in a formal research context). Concurrent child groups may improve adherence as they address a practical barrier to attendance, and may boost treatment outcomes given the additional treatment provided directly to children. However, this should be empirically verified given that offering concurrent child treatment poses a number of practical and costly challenges (e.g., extra staff, extra space) that are not recouped by insurance reimbursement. This preliminary study explores whether offering concurrent child treatment groups provides added treatment benefits in a sample of convenience obtained from an outpatient clinic. Data was collected from 241 parents of 6- to 12-year-old children with ADHD who attended 1 of 37 8-session BPT groups, of which 15 offered a concurrent child group. Parents completed ratings of child impairment and parenting confidence at the first and last BPT session. Results showed that clinical improvement was equitable regardless of whether a concurrent child group was attended, and there were no demographic or clinical differences between those who opted to attend the parent+child groups and those who did not. Suggestions are provided for clinicians who may decide to discontinue offering concurrent child groups. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Treating complicated grief in a teenager with autism: When the client’s
           limitations prevent engagement in therapy.
    • Abstract: Treating grief in adolescents is only further complicated by a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). When the loss is traumatic, treatment becomes even more difficult, because mourning can be interrupted by the stigmatizing events of the loss, which leads to feelings of helplessness in the survivor. The case of 15-year-old Manda demonstrates a client with ASD whose traumatic grief symptoms do not respond to traditional approaches to treatment. Despite using therapeutic interventions targeted to clients with ASD and grief, 5 months of work based on complicated grief treatment (CGT) with Manda and her father has not led to any improvements in her suicidality and grief. In this treatment, her slow processing speed and cognitive rigidity seemed to prevent CGT interventions’ effectiveness. Additional months using the neuropsychological therapeutic intervention of social medicine, education, exercise, diet, and sleep (SEEDS) by Arden (2015) has resulted in limited progress by helping Manda to develop some global skills in the areas that neuropsychology indicates support general mental health. After months of intensive work, Manda still seems unable to articulate or connect her feelings of loss to her sadness. Based on a literature review of developmental grief processes, Manda would be expected to be showing more understanding of what her loss means to her life moving forward and an ability to articulate the feelings attached to that loss. Until she is able to verbalize her feelings of traumatic loss, therapy will continue to be unable to significantly address her grief and integrate those feelings.

  • How the interaction between parent and child can lead to nonadherence: A
           case study of self-catheterization.
    • Abstract: The following case study depicts an outpatient pediatric psychology patient with spina bifida–myelomeningocele who resisted self-catheterization. The patient’s case was initially conceptualized as anxiety toward the catheterization process and behavior was later reconceptualized as oppositional and attention seeking. Parent reluctance to follow through with recommendations that involved placing demands on the patient resulted in slow progress and movement away from self-catheterization. As supported in the literature, the primary barrier to progress toward self-catheterization in this case appeared related to lack of follow-through and overinvolvement on the part of parents, leading to decreased child autonomy and independence.
