The current study examined whether subgroups of individuals with schizophrenia could be identified based on their profiles of trait positive and negative emotional experience, and whether those subgroups differed in their symptom presentation and functional outcome. Participants included 192 outpatients diagnosed with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder (SZ) and 149 demographically matched healthy controls who completed the trait version of the Positive and Negative Affect Scale, as well a...

Research supports increasing cultural pressures for leanness among young men; however, few studies have examined whether weight dissatisfaction or efforts to alter weight have become more prevalent for men over time. The present study evaluated secular trends in weight dissatisfaction and related behaviors among college-age men across 4 decades; 1,097 men completed surveys while they were in college in 1982 (n = 276), 1992, (n = 233), 2002 (n = 241), and 2012 (n = 347). In 1982, men with a body ...

A substantial body of research demonstrates that experiences of trauma are associated with disruptions in learning processes. Specifically, research shows altered nonassociative and associative learning in individuals who report traumatic experiences. The combination of trauma and altered learning also confers risk for negative health and mental health outcomes. One subtype of trauma that receives less attention in terms of its association with learning processes is exposure to violence (ETV)-wi...
Reports an error in "Identity confusion in complicated grief: A closer look" by Benjamin W. Bellet, Nicole J. LeBlanc, Marie-Christine Nizzi, Mikaela L. Carter, Florentine H. S. van der Does, Jacqueline Peters, Donald J. Robinaugh and Richard J. McNally (Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 2020[May], Vol 129[4], 397-407). In the original article, the following acknowledgment of funding was missing from the author note: "Donald J. Robinaugh's work on this article was supported by federal funding from...
Prior research indicates that individuals with schizophrenia (SZ) display emotion regulation abnormalities that are critically linked to increased symptom severity and poor functional outcome. However, processes contributing to the aberrant implementation of various strategies are unclear. The current study took a multimodal approach to identifying mechanisms underlying the impaired implementation of 2 strategies: reappraisal and distraction. Participants included 25 individuals with SZ and 25 h...

The past decades of research on predictors of depression have frequently emphasized interactive diathesis-stress questions: What kinds of vulnerabilities under stressful circumstances increase risk of developing depression? This study addresses 3 theoretically important gaps in our knowledge regarding diathesis-stress models of depression: the role of temperament (neuroticism), interactive versus additive effects of neuroticism-stress relationships, and effects of stressor characteristics (acute...

Although numerous longitudinal studies have examined heterogeneity in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom course, the long-term course of the disorder remains poorly understood. This study sought to understand and predict long-term PTSD symptom course among a nationwide sample of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom veterans enrolled in Veterans Health Administration services. We assessed PTSD symptoms at 4 time points over approximately 4.5 years (M = 55.11 months, SD = 6.89)....

People with eating disorders (ED) have elevated rates of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. We used network analysis to identify symptoms that bridge EDs and suicidality, as well as central symptoms within the network, among 3 groups of adults. Participants were either (a) clinical psychiatric outpatients without current EDs (n = 538), (b) clinical psychiatric outpatients with a lifetime suicide attempt (n = 166), or (c) people with current EDs (n = 238). Networks were jointly estimated among grou...

Unique pathways to adolescents' co-occurring internalizing/externalizing problems, a severe and common form of psychopathology, remain poorly delineated; this paucity of knowledge impedes the development of personalized interventions. We examined established measures of genetic risk and early childhood temperamental dimensions to clarify potentially distinct pathways to adolescents' co-occurring internalizing/externalizing problems. Participants were drawn from a longitudinal randomized controll...

: Biased social cognition toward an enhanced processing of negative social information might contribute to instability in interpersonal relationships. Such interpersonal dysfunctions are important for the understanding of several mental disorders, among them borderline personality disorder (BPD). To experimentally test enhanced memory retrieval of negative social information, using a newly developed variant of a looking-at-nothing paradigm, 45 BPD patients and 36 healthy women learned positive a...
