  • Pediatric mental health crisis: Propelling the Surgeon General’s
           advice to action.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The nation is facing a pediatric mental health crisis that is years in the making. The pandemic potentiated the crisis by isolating youth and compounding family stressors. In response, the US Surgeon General issued an advisory in late 2021 recommending actions that health care and other sectors should take to improve youth well-being. Integrated care has a critical role to play in both implementing and moving beyond the Surgeon General’s recommendations. The Collaborative Family Healthcare Association’s Pediatric Special Interest Group (SIG) meets monthly to provide support and learning experiences and to promote dissemination of innovations to address the pediatric mental health crisis. In this article, we share recommendations, informed by the conversations in the CHFA Pediatric SIG, to propel the Surgeon General’s advice into actions. We prioritize and emphasize structural changes that are needed in the health care system and highlight practical and actionable steps individual providers can take to increase cross sector collaboration.

  • Fractured families and social networks: Identifying risk and resilience
           factors for supporting positive mental health in Venezuelan immigrant
           groups.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives: Language barriers, isolation, and challenges related to social integration, acculturative stress, and systemic discrimination are correlated with poor physical and mental health outcomes among immigrant populations. Emerging literature highlights the importance of social networks for resiliency and well-being. This study explores the experiences of Venezuelan immigrants in central Florida, factors that have promoted resilience, and considerations for mental health providers to meet the needs of this population. Method: A phenomenological approach was used to engage Venezuelan immigrants who had been in the United States for at least 6 months (n = 48) in dialogue about forced migration, identity, and adaptation. Five focus groups using a semistructured format were conducted to explore aspects of the experience before, during, and after migration. Recruitment was done through word of mouth and community gatekeepers. Results: Participants were 54% female with an average age of 45, 85% had at least 1 college degree, and more than half left Venezuela since 2011. Themes were identified from the focus group transcripts and clustered into three broad areas: characteristics and individual experiences, mental health, and family and social context. Major findings included the need for culturally responsive mental health support, which appeared to mitigate distress and the centrality of social networks in support of resiliency. Conclusions: Findings from the present study suggest that community context, support for ethnic identity, and the ability to foster meaningful connections to others with similar experience and identity are critical factors in resilience.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this article, the authors highlight their experience in navigating outdated, inequitable policies at institutions and in advocating for changes that support health equity research with a focus on participant compensation. As two new assistant professors establishing their programs of health equity research, they call on colleagues to examine their practices of participant compensation while consider an intersectional and systems-level framework. Their goals are to develop culturally responsive interventions that bolster well-being and ameliorate harm caused by continuous exclusion or poor research methods. They highly recommend health equity researchers evaluate their institutions’ research and financial practices to promote equitable payment options that are inclusive of everyone.

  • Inequities in behavioral health: What do we really know'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Behavioral health problems are ubiquitous in today’s society. Social, environmental, and physical stressors impact our daily activities and wellness, contributing to mental health conditions, both diagnosed and undiagnosed, as well as substance use. We know that populations and identities are not equally impacted. Populations who experience greater stressors suffer more. Structures and systems cause and reinforce inequities in health, inclusive of behavioral health. Still, there is insufficient understanding of the existing disparities in behavioral health. Right now, what do we know' And perhaps more importantly, what do we know that we do not know' Behavioral health itself is an inequity in health care. Predominantly isolated from physical health, we still have not achieved parity in preventive measures, access, management, or reimbursement for care. We cannot let what we do not know prevent us from advocating for adequate resource allocation and prioritizing community driven solutions for populations with the greatest needs. These efforts must shift from programmatic interventions to full-scale paradigm shifts in public policy and adoption of disaggregated racial data to effectively narrow the gaps in equality and help us address behavioral health with the respect deserved to balance inequities.

  • Review of UNSTUCK: An OCD kids movie.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Reviews the documentary film, UNSTUCK: An OCD Kids Movie by Kelly Anderson and Chris Baier (2017). In the film, Anderson and Baier interview six children diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), whom they refer to as “kid experts.” It provides a new way of educating the public on a psychological disorder that is often casually referenced but frequently misunderstood. With its focus on children and their families, UNSTUCK offers families, educators, therapists, and researchers alike a viewpoint often overlooked in current film and literature regarding OCD: the viewpoints of the children and adolescents themselves. Individuals working in pediatrics or family therapy, thosewith personal or family experience with OCD, and those interested in learning more about the patient–child experience of psychiatric disorders and corresponding impact on family dynamics will be interested in this film.

  • From surviving to thriving: Strategies to cultivate individual and
           organizational resilience in the health care workforce.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this president's column, the author notes that resilience has been identified as a strategy to mitigate the triumvirate of burnout, compassion fatigue, and moral distress. Once viewed as an innate personality trait, there has been an increased focus on the cultivation of resilience among health care providers, with attention to evolving educational models depending on the career stage of the provider and interventions for interprofessional health care workers. Strategies to develop the “7Cs” of individual resilience, which were initially applied to children and adolescents, have begun to be applied to physicians. If we are to really celebrate our frontline workers, we need to not only promote their personal wellbeing, but also make conscious efforts to restructure the environments and health care systems in which they work. Only through thoughtful and comprehensive interventions—targeting both the individual and the institution—can we truly foster well-being. Such efforts can help move our workforce and teams from the constant state of merely surviving that they have been in the past several years to thriving and finding joy again in their work.

  • Clinician’s commentary to accompany “group well-child care model for
           Latino children in immigrant families: Adapting to and learning from the
           COVID-19 context”.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Comments on an article by Nomi S. Weiss-Laxer et al. (see record 2022-71815-001). Providing virtual services takes time for many providers and families to get familiar with and many prefer in-person contact over telehealth; however, many of the challenges of doing telehealth can be overcome with creativity and flexibility. As clinicians, they agree with the authors that using the features of the technology to our advantage was helpful and that confirming with each person that they had privacy was vital to effective communication. Problem-solving was often needed, and most times parents had the best ideas for working around the limitations of their home environment. The article highlighted the possibility of hybrid models of care considering the needs and wants of both patients and providers. Such a hybrid approach can increase connection to clinics through in-person visits which can jump-start the establishment of therapeutic relationships and build trust (confianza) with clinicians and clinic staff. As the pandemic becomes more controlled, giving parents a choice and flexibility to change modalities can help them stay engaged and reduce drop out. Clinics will need to assess the language preferences of the families they serve to ensure they have enough staff and providers who are bilingual or multilingual to deliver such programs or use trained interpreters. These concerns would need to be addressed if implementation were increased on a large scale. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Group well-child care model for Latino children in immigrant families:
           Adapting to and learning from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
           context.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Group well-child care (GWCC) is an alternative to traditional pediatric well-child care designed to increase parental social support and peer learning. This mixed methods study explored the adaptation and implementation of GWCC to a virtual format during coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19 pandemic) among Spanish-speaking Latino immigrant families. Method: Interviews were conducted with eight providers and 10 mothers from May through September 2020. Qualitative analyses used a priori codes based on an implementation science framework. Quantitative data included demographics, the COVID-19 Impact Scale, and virtual group attendance. Bivariate analyses identified correlates of virtual visit attendance. Results: Eighty percent of mothers reported the pandemic had moderately or extremely impacted at least one major life domain such as daily life, food security, or family conflict. Of 27 mothers offered virtual groups, 67% attended. Mothers who attended virtual groups reported lower English proficiency (p = .087) and fewer friends and family members with COVID-19 (M = 1.0 vs. 5.1, p < .05) than those who did not attend. Women described virtual GWCC as acceptable and a source of social support. Some described differences in group dynamics compared with in-person groups and had privacy concerns. Providers noted scheduling and billing challenges affecting feasibility and sustainability. They reported that visits with good attendance were productive. Mothers and pediatric providers offered recommendations to improve feasibility and privacy and address sustainability. Discussion: Competing demands for those most impacted by COVID-19 may outweigh benefits of attendance. Virtual Spanish language GWCC appears acceptable and feasible for Spanish speaking Latina mothers. Thematic analysis and recommendations identify areas of improvement.

  • Shared decision making and autonomy preferences of pediatric health care
           providers and parents of pediatric patients.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: The aim of the current study was to determine whether parents of pediatric patients and health care providers (i.e., physicians and nurse practitioners) have different preferences for shared decision making (SDM) and whether these preferences vary across medical situations. Method: Participants consisted of parents of children presenting to pediatric clinics (n = 164) and their matched pediatric health care providers (n = 18). Parents and providers completed measures of preferred autonomy for decision-making in general and across specific medical scenarios. Results: Preferences for autonomy were not uniform and varied across situations among providers and among parents. Further, parents and their providers differed from one another in their autonomy preferences across most scenarios, but not in general preferences. Discussion: The results of this study provide evidence of the complex nature of the provider-parent relationship in pediatric practice. This study highlights the need for providers to consider contextual factors that impact parents’ preferences for autonomy when making shared medical decisions.

  • Patient screening for integrated behavioral health in adult primary care:
           A rapid review of effective procedures.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose: Although many primary care clinics screen for behavioral health (BH) conditions using validated tools, it is not clear whether adult BH screening leads to better patient outcomes. Our objective was to determine the evidence base by reviewing effectiveness research for multiple strategies of BH screening in adult primary care identified in the Practice Integration Profile. Method: We conducted five rapid reviews of effectiveness research supporting BH screening strategies cited in the Practice Integration Profile. Each rapid review was conducted using an adapted REAL (Rapid Evidence Assessment of the Literature) methodology and a standardized search tailored for each screening strategy to identify evidence related to BH screening in primary care. Results: The database search yielded 931 references. Following eligibility review and extraction, we evaluated data from 20 references examining five screening strategies. Results demonstrated limited support for all five strategies and high risk of bias within most studies. Outcomes associated with various BH screening strategies were rarely the focus of study. Conclusions: There is an absence of robust, well-structured evidence supporting many of the BH screening strategies advocated for in primary care. Stakeholders may wish to understand how to ensure value when developing a robust screening program that will improve patient health outcomes. Future research should advance the science of BH screen selection, timing, and implementation by answering new questions about screening strategies.

  • Mental health screening of patients with cystic fibrosis through
           telehealth during COVID-19: Evaluation of feasibility and process
           adoption.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Persons with cystic fibrosis (CF) have higher rates of depression and anxiety compared to the general population. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation guidelines recommend annual screening for depression and anxiety for people with CF. COVID-19 and related social distancing has created challenges for administration of mental health screening by CF centers. The aim of this quality improvement project was to evaluate the feasibility of implementing mental health screening during multidisciplinary telehealth appointments for adult patients with CF during COVID-19, adoption of screening by CF mental health providers, and patient screening results before and after introduction of telehealth. Method: Patients were screened via telehealth using the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 between April and October 2020. Results: CF mental health providers implemented a mental health screening process via telehealth and 93.9% of patients seen during that time completed the screening. The screening did not increase clinic visit length and no significant differences were found between rates of depression and anxiety and 2019 clinic rates. Discussion: Implementation of mental health screening during a multidisciplinary telehealth clinic is feasible and can be adopted by providers and patients, even when health systems operations are impacted by COVID-19. It allows CF centers to maintain adherence to mental health screening and treatment guidelines. This method of screening can be applied to other patient populations and systems of care to expand access to mental health services during COVID-19 and beyond.

  • Clinical, operational, and financial evaluation practices in integrated
           behavioral health care.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction: Integrated behavioral health care is an important pathway to providing whole person care. It is delivered through a transdisciplinary lens and team and funded through complex policies, billing codes, and systems. While the clinical practice of integrated behavioral health care has received attention in the research, less is known about how health care systems demonstrate and evaluate the utility, effectiveness, impact, and longevity of integrating behavioral health into primary care. Method: Health care professionals (N = 145) working in integrated settings were recruited to participate in a metaevaluation about their evaluation practices. Descriptive and regression analyses were used to summarize and evaluate findings on clinical, operational, and financial evaluation practices. Results: There were a variety of types of evaluation practices across the national sample, as well as understanding across professional roles. Findings from the survey, which included primary care providers, behavioral health clinicians, and administrators working in integrated care settings confirmed that there was a lack of knowledge about evaluation and resources necessary to engage in the evaluation of clinical, operational, and financial outcomes. Furthermore, administrators were more likely to know about evaluation practices compared to medical providers and behavioral health providers. The survey also highlighted that organizational barriers to implementing integrated care were an issue across programs. Discussion: Utilizing clinical, operational, and financial evaluation together provide a more comprehensive review of the implementation integrated behavioral health. Real-world implementers and evaluators should consider forming integrated and inclusive evaluation teams, including administrators, medical providers, behavioral health clinicians, patients, and families.

  • Parent resilience after young child minor burn injury.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective: Pediatric burn injuries are common injuries that are traumatic for the child and their families. Although many families report high amounts of distress soon after injury, most are resilient and do not continue to experience prolonged psychosocial problems. The aim was to identify factors associated with parent resilience after pediatric burn injury. Method: Fifty-seven parents of young children (< 5 years old) enrolled in a longitudinal assessment study. Baseline evaluations were conducted within 1 week of injury and included a medical chart review and parent self-report measures of resilience, social support, family functioning, and coping. Follow-up measurement of parent traumatic stress was measured 3 months after injury. We examined baseline resilience, positive emotionality, social support, family functioning, and problem-solving coping behaviors for relationships to traumatic stress. Results: Parent resilience at baseline was associated with lower rates of parent traumatic stress symptoms at follow-up. Lower rates of traumatic stress were more common in parents of older children with more trait-level resilience, more social support, and more planning problem-solving behaviors at baseline. Conclusions: Baseline resilience characteristics are associated with less traumatic stress for parents several months after the injury. Findings can be used to develop screening strategies and interventions that address planning and problem-solving and emphasize social support.

  • Bilingual care navigation and enhanced case management during COVID-19.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: COVID-19 disparities exposed health inequity across socioeconomic status, with community members of color experiencing higher rates of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and death. Racial/ethnic differences were especially disparate in Benton and Washington counties in northwest Arkansas, a region in the United States that experienced high COVID-19 infection rates. To address these disparities and support families with COVID-19, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and Community Clinic (a federally qualified health center) worked with the Arkansas Department of Health and community partners to develop systematic Care Navigation and Enhanced Case Management. During an initial screening process, contact tracers offered Care Navigation and Enhanced Case Management services to individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 within Washington and Benton counties. Bilingual community health navigators, social workers, and nurses began providing enhanced case management to households that accepted services. Between September 9, 2020 and June 19, 2021, 3,502 households representing ∼13,000 individuals were offered services, and 1,511 (43.1%) households requested/accepted services. Based on our experience, we provide four recommendations for practice: (a) provide contact tracing in community members’ preferred language, (b) incorporate assessments into the contact tracing process to ensure community members have necessary resources for quarantine, (c) implement comprehensive care navigation and case management services for those who need additional support, and (d) integrate bilingual health navigators who are part of the target community into the process.

  • COVID-19 and crisis communication among African American households.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background: African American (AA) families are disproportionately burdened by COVID-19 resulting in morbidity and death. How pandemic risks and impacts are communicated to parents and in turn translated to children can have implications for familial mental wellbeing. Because culture shapes how information is received, processed, and utilized, there is need to understand how AA parents’ experiences of COVID-19 information sharing and perceived vulnerabilities influenced communication with their children. Methods: Data was collected through semistructured in-depth telephone interviews conducted among 11 African American households with school aged child (5 to 17 years). Line-byline coding and thematic analysis were used to deduce meaning from professionally transcribed data. Preliminary Findings: Four themes on trust in information sources, risk perceptions, attitudes to prevention methods, and parent–child risk communication emerged. Although participants felt challenged by their inherent vulnerabilities and communicating COVID-19 risks at an appropriate comprehension level to their children, they leaned into cultural safety nets such as “the dinner table” to encourage conversation and foster resilience. Implications: Understanding how African American families with children were impacted by COVID-19 and how adequate crisis communication can help mitigate adverse health consequences, strengthen recovery, foster resilience, and promote family and community healing is important. Clinicians and therapists who work with AA families should be sensitive to their social vulnerability and culturally responsive to AA family systems when communicating about public health emergencies.

  • Parenting about challenges and adolescents’ social anxiety, disrupted
           classroom concentration, and resilience knowledge: The mediating role of
           authentic self-esteem.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background: A large theoretical and empirical literature indicates that parenting practices affect young people’s well-being and resilience, but there is much still to learn about psychological mechanisms, especially beyond infancy/early childhood. A recent model of authentic self-esteem argues that it arises out of experiences of challenge situations shared with parents and that it can subsequently act as a protective factor that supports well-being and resilience among young people. The aim of the current study is to test (a) if parenting about challenges can predict 3 indices of adolescents’ well-being, namely their social anxiety, disrupted classroom concentration, and ability to spontaneously generate resilient strategies; and more substantially, (b) if authentic self-esteem can mediate those associations if found. Method: Adolescents (N = 836) completed a questionnaire that measured all the study variables via self-report with the exception that unprompted open questions were used to gauge their ability to spontaneously generate resilient strategies. Results: Parental discussions of challenges did significantly predict all 3 well-being indices, and authentic self-esteem was found to mediate all these relationships. Discussion: These results support the view that parenting about challenges is a practice that supports well-being and resilience in adolescents. It appears to do so through promoting the development of authentic self-esteem, a capacity to evaluate the self in a positive manner in the context of challenges. The theoretical and practical significance of these findings are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
