Abstract Objective Understanding the fluctuating emotional and cognitive states of adolescents with depressive symptoms requires fine-grained and naturalistic measurements. This study used ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to investigate the affective correlates and consequences of mind-wandering in adolescents with anhedonia (AH) and typically developing (TD) controls. In addition, we examined the association between mind-wandering and resting state functional connectivity between the media...
Abstract Objective School-aged children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have reduced health related quality of life (HRQoL) but it is unclear whether this also applies to preschool children. It is unknown whether parent training (PT) improves HRQoL. This study compared HRQoL in preschool children with ADHD with age-matched children from the general population, examined whether PT improves HRQoL, and tested if treatment-related changes in HRQoL are mediated by improvements in...
Abstract Objective Disease containment of COVID-19 has necessitated widespread social isolation. We aimed to establish what is known about how loneliness and disease containment measures impact on the mental health in children and adolescents. Method For this rapid review, we searched MEDLINE, PSYCHINFO, and Web of Science for articles published between 01/01/1946 and 03/29/2020. 20% of articles were double screened using pre-defined criteria and 20% of data was double extracted for quality assu...

We appreciate the thoughtful and supportive comments from Dr. Masters1 and agree that coercive parent-child relationships were often what was addressed and modified during hospitalization. Lowering seclusion and restraint rates by prohibiting them, without lowering rates of aggression, is not the desired outcome. As we noted in our paper, evidence-based treatments are sorely needed for young children whose severe and destructive outbursts get them psychiatrically hospitalized.
I read with interest the article "Behavior Modification Is Associated With Reduced Psychotropic Medication Use in Children With Aggression in Inpatient Treatment: A Retrospective Cohort Study" by Carlson et al.,1 and I believe it raises important developmental questions regarding the application of adult criteria for seclusion and restraint (S/R) management to time out (T/O) procedures on child psychiatric inpatient units and the reliance on verbal de-escalation options to address behavioral cri...

A beautiful word. Probably one of the simplest concepts a mind can hold, but equally controversial and conflictual in its application. An action often assumed to be altruistic but potentially more enriching than any conceivable indulgence. At times so difficult to enact and sometimes even harder to receive. Perhaps most arduous to extend to ourselves.
The following describes the case of Miguel and a missed diagnosis in an undocumented minor. Miguel Estrada (all names changed to protect identity) was a 10-year-old boy of Central American origin initially seen at age 8 years in our university outpatient child psychiatry clinic. During the initial evaluation with a native Spanish-speaking provider, his mother, Mrs. Estrada, reported behavioral problems beginning at age 5 with diagnoses of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and intellectual...
