Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma & Attachment
Many of my clients ask questions during the first session like “Why is my body so tight?” or “Why can’t I sleep at night?” People want to know why their bodies react to psychological stressors such as frustration, trauma, rejection, fear, and anxiety — why all of our bodies seem programmed to respond to these as well as environmental cues, facial expressions, attitudes, and other stimuli. Pat Ogden, founder and director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, and Janina Fisher, a clinical psychologist specializing in trauma, synthesize psychological and medical models to explain why we physically re...

Measuring the Neural Basis of Reward Anticipation and Reward Receipt in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: The Importance of Task Design
In the May 2015 issue of the Journal, von Rhein et al.1 investigated ventral-striatal (VS) response during monetary reward anticipation and receipt using an impressively large sample (N = 350) of adolescents and young adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), their unaffected siblings, and typically functioning controls. The goal was to resolve putative inconsistent findings in previous studies by using a statistically well-powered, multicenter, large-scale functional magnetic resonance imaging study.

How ‘core’ are motor timing difficulties in ADHD? A latent class comparison of pure and comorbid ADHD classes
This study examined whether affected motor timing accuracy and variability are specific for ADHD, or that comorbidity with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) contributes to these motor timing difficulties. An 80-trial motor timing task measuring accuracy (μ), variability (σ) and infrequent long response times (τ) in estimating a 1-s interval was administered to 283 children and adolescents (8–17 years) from both a clinic and population based sample. They were divided into four latent classes based on the SCQ and CPRS-R:L data. These classes were: without behavioral problems ‘Normal-class’ (n = 154), with only ADHD...

Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis in a Patient with Previous Psychosis and Neurological Abnormalities: A Diagnostic Challenge.
We present the case of a woman who was followed up at our facility for over 14 years for the treatment of multiple neuropsychiatric symptoms. Initially, she presented with paresthesias, memory loss, and manic symptoms. Nine years later, she presented to our facility again, this time with left sided numbness, left eyelid droop, and word finding difficulties. Finally, five years later, she presented with manic symptoms, hallucinations, and memory impairment. During her hospitalization, she subsequently developed catatonic symptoms and seizures. During her stay, it was discovered that she was positive for anti-NMDA receptor a...

[Cost-effectiveness of addiction care].
CONCLUSION: Almost all of the interventions studied were cost-saving or cost-effective. Many studies consider only health-care costs. Additional research, for instance using a social cost-benefit analysis, could provide more details about the costs of addiction and about the impact that an intervention could have in these/the costs.

Personality Change Due to Traumatic Brain Injury in Children and Adolescents: Neurocognitive Correlates.
This study aimed to examine neurocognitive correlates of PC. The sample included 177 children 5-14 years old with traumatic brain injury who were enrolled from consecutive admissions to five trauma centers. Patients were followed up prospectively at baseline and at 6 months, and they were assessed with semistructured psychiatric interviews. Injury severity, socioeconomic status, and neurocognitive function (measures of attention, processing speed, verbal memory, IQ, verbal working memory, executive function, naming/reading, expressive language, motor speed, and motor inhibition) were assessed with standardized instruments....

Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Definitive Guide for Educators
As a teacher, it can be especially rewarding to work with students who have special needs. However, that can also mean we are thrown into a classroom with a big group of kids, many of whom have been diagnosed with learning disabilities we know very little about. Because we often start the year scrambling to educate ourselves on our new students’ needs, I had hoped that Neurodevelopmental Disorders: A Definitive Guide for Educators would be a useful resource. Unfortunately, I did not come away from it with a better sense of how to help this student population. Author Frank E. Vargo provides a breakdown of types of ...
