There is limited research on client and clinician perceptions of telemental health and how these perceptions differ. The current study examines interest in and perceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of telemental health, from both college students, who are seeking mental health services, and clinicians. College student clients (N = 270) and therapists (N = 46) were surveyed to determine perceptions (e.g., benefits, concerns, preference, comfort) of several telemental health modalities. ...

Abstract Although depressive disorders are among the most common disorders in youth, highly efficacious treatments for childhood affective disorders are lacking. There is significant need to better understand the factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of depression in youth so that treatments can be targeted at optimal mechanisms. The aim of the current paper was to synthesize research on cognitive and neurobiological factors associated with youth depression, guided by De Rae...

Anxiety typically arises early in childhood and decreases during school age. However, little is known about the earlier developmental course of anxiety in preschool, especially in at risk children, posing a clinically important problem. Given that anxiety in youth has a chronic course for some and also predicts later development of other mental health problems, it is important to identify factors early in development that may predict chronic anxiety symptoms. At-risk children (oversampled for de...

AbstractThis current study tested whether attentional control moderates the relationship between attentional bias to threat and anxiety in children. Children completed a self-report measure of attentional control and anxiety and an attentional bias task. Attentional control was examined as a moderator in the relationship between attentional bias and different dimensions of anxiety. The interaction between attentional control and attentional bias was significant for total and generalized anxiety....

Standard methods of symptom assessment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) entail retrospective report of symptoms over a specified period (e.g., a week, a month). However, such methods may be subject to recall bias, leading to symptom assessments potentially discrepant from actual patient experience. The current study explored potential recall biases in two domains of symptom severity, distress, and interference, using experience-sampling methods (ESMs). Twenty-one adults with a primary dia...

Positive aspects of self-compassion (i.e., self-kindness and nonjudgmental acceptance of personal experiences) as well as negative aspects (i.e., high self-criticism and self-coldness) are strong predictors of anxiety, depression, worry, and quality of life. To date, however, relatively little is known about (a) how both aspects of self-compassion change during naturalistic treatment, (b) whether and how such changes relate to symptom improvement, and (c) which processes might explain the potent...

AbstractIntolerance of uncertainty (IU) is characterized by negative beliefs and reactions to uncertainty. IU is present in emotional disorders and may be a mechanism of change in treatment . There are two components of IU, prospective and inhibitory IU, that may be differentially associated with outcome. The current study tested associations between pre- and post-treatment changes in the components of IU, symptoms of anxiety and depression, and treatment outcome in a large diagnostically hetero...

Abstract Distress intolerance (DI) is defined as a perceived or actual inability to withstand distressing emotional or somatic states, which motivates the use of avoidance strategies. Despite widespread interest in DI, key questions about its underlying structure remain unanswered. The current study evaluated the latent structure of DI in two large samples using four-indicators and three taxometric procedures (MAMBAC, MAXEIG, and L-Mode). Data interpretation relied primarily on the Comparison Cu...

ABSTRACTBackground and objectives: Attention control deficits and repetitive negative thinking (RNT; i.e., rumination) may be key factors in the development and persistence of depression and anxiety, although their role in symptom development remains poorly understood. This represents a gap in the literature, as interventions targeting attention control and associated RNT may enhance interventions and prevent costly relapse. The current study was designed to examine the serial indirect effects o...
