Abstract Few studies have investigated anxiety sensitivity (AS) in the context of inflammatory arthritis (IA), despite evidence of a relationship between AS and pain. This study examined cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships between AS and indicators of IA severity in 148 participants with IA. AS and its factors (social, physical, cognitive) were self-reported. Arthritis severity was physician-assessed (disease activity scales) and self-reported (physical function; pain and fatigue). Cr...

Abstract One of the core features of social anxiety disorder (SAD) is the persistent fear of being evaluated. Fear of evaluation includes fear of negative evaluation (FNE) and fear of positive evaluation (FPE). Few studies have examined the relationship between self-reported FNE and FPE and neural responses to simulated negative and positive social evaluation. In the current study, 56 participants, 35 with SAD and 21 healthy controls, completed questionnaires to assess dimensions of social anxie...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to report findings on the epidemiology of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) using data from the Singapore Mental Health Study (SMHS) 2016, and draw comparisons with results from the first SMHS in 2010. Singapore residents aged 18 years and above participated in the household survey where the WHO Composite International Diagnostic Interview 3.0 was administered to assess the prevalence of GAD and other mental health conditions. The findings revealed that the lif...

Abstract Background Cognitive models propose that attentional dysregulation, including an attentional bias towards threat, is one of the factors through which chronic pain and post-traumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) maintain and exacerbate one another. The current investigation assessed the attentional bias for painful facial expressions and its relationship with PTSS, using both traditional and variability-based attentional bias measures, among veterans with chronic pain and PTSS and controls. Me...

The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of imagery rescripting (ImRs), an established technique for the treatment of traumatic stress, as a treatment for OCD symptoms that were not responsive to standard exposure and response prevention (ERP). Thirteen patients completed a baseline assessm...

Abstract Internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (ICBT) for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has been demonstrated to be efficacious across multiple clinical trials. However, most of these interventions include clinician support, and many individuals with OCD prefer to manage their own symptoms. Self-guided ICBT overcomes this problem, but to date the efficacy of self-guided interventions has only been studied in uncontrolled trials. The present study aims to examine the efficacy and ac...

Abstract Transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals frequently confront discrimination, rejection, and violence. Such experiences may put TGNC individuals at risk for minority stress and associated psychiatric symptoms. Protective factors like social support, pride in one’s gender identity, or connectedness to similar others may make TGNC individuals less vulnerable to psychiatric symptoms, and the presence of risk and protective factors may vary depending on living environment.
