  • Why psychologists should reject complementary and alternative medicine: A
           science-based perspective.
    • Authors: Swan; Lawton K.; Skarsten, Sondre; Heesacker, Martin; Chambers, John R.
      Abstract: Professional psychology is in apparent conflict about its relationship to “complementary” and “alternative” medicine (CAM)—some scholars envision a harmonious partnership, whereas others perceive irreconcilable differences. We propose that the field’s ambivalence stems at least partly from the fact that inquiring psychologists can readily point to peer-reviewed empirical evidence (e.g., published reports of randomized controlled trials) to either substantiate or refute claims for the efficacy of most CAM modalities. Thankfully, recent intellectual developments in the fields of medicine and scientific psychology—developments which we refer to collectively as the science-based perspective—have led to the identification of several principles that may be used to judge the relative validity of conflicting health intervention research findings, including the need to consider (a) the prior scientific plausibility of a treatment’s putative mechanism-of-action; and, commensurately, (b) the degree of equivalence between treatment and control groups—except for the single active element of the treatment believed to cause a specific change, all else between the 2 groups should be identical. To illustrate the potential of this approach to resolve psychology’s CAM controversy, we conducted a rereview of the research cited by Barnett and Shale (2012) regarding the efficacy of 11 types of CAM that psychologists might endorse. Fewer than 15% of the studies we reviewed (N = 240) employed research designs capable of ruling out nonspecific effects, and those that did tended to produce negative results. From a science-based perspective, psychologists should reject CAM in principle and practice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Broadening the focus in supporting reintegrating Iraq and Afghanistan
           veterans: Six key domains of functioning.
    • Authors: Sherman; Michelle D.; Larsen, Jessica; Borden, Lynne M.
      Abstract: As the major ground troop presence in the Middle East is reduced, it is time to reflect, maximize lessons learned, and look forward to what lies ahead for the nearly 2.6 million service members of the United States military who have deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. A systematic review of the literature on postdeployment functioning of Iraq and Afghanistan troops was conducted. Findings are described and contextualized in terms of service members’ ongoing strengths, needs, and challenges. The corpus of research on deployed personnel indicates that service members demonstrate resilience in the face of war-related stressors. However, postdeployment impairment in 6 functional domains emerged in the literature review, including mental health, social and role functioning, relationship functioning and family life, spirituality, physical health, and financial well-being. Although risk factors and future trajectories vary across these domains, psychiatric difficulties are a consistent predictor of a worsened course. Implications for clinical practice are described based on the review findings. To promote wellbeing in the years ahead, it is important that service members are supported in their various roles (such as in the classroom, the workforce, and the family). In addition, routine assessment of functioning across domains is highly recommended for postdeployment service members. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Having or adopting another child: Perspectives from bereaved fathers.
    • Authors: Olson-Garriott; Amber N.; Gamino, Louis A.; Davies, Elizabeth B.; Gudmundsdottir, Maria
      Abstract: How does a clinician comfort a bereaved parent who presents for psychotherapy following the death of a child? What advice is given if the subject turns to the question of having another child? To address these questions, investigators mined archival data from 11 bereaved fathers to gain a more detailed understanding of the experience of fathers who went on to have a subsequent child after losing a child in a pediatric palliative care setting. Phenomenological qualitative methods were used to analyze in-depth interviews with the participants regarding their thoughts, feelings, and perceptions about the decision to have another child as well as how the subsequent child impacted their grief trajectory, mental and physical health outcomes, and overall adaptation and coping. Three primary themes emerged from the data: decision-making process and the waiting game, emerging from mourning, and furthering the connection. Based on these findings, useful strategies to use with bereaved fathers and parents are discussed, and include managing anxiety and ambivalence, rediscovery of joy and happiness, “second chance” at fathering, and enhancing a continued bond with the deceased child.

  • Motivational interviewing: Improving the delivery of psychological
           services to law enforcement.
    • Authors: Steinkopf; Bryan L.; Hakala, Kori A.; Van Hasselt, Vincent B.
      Abstract: Law enforcement officers are a high-risk population for the development of several debilitating mental and physical health problems, increasing the need for effective psychological interventions. This article reviews: (a) mental health problems that police officers are at risk of developing, (b) factors in the law enforcement profession that increase the need for mental health services for officers, (c) the current state of psychological interventions with law enforcement personnel, and (d) how the empirically supported technique of motivational interviewing (MI) may improve the overall success of the psychological treatments most widely used with this population. MI is an interview delivery style that has been shown to be highly successful with treatment-resistant populations. We propose that the incorporation of MI into current mental health services for law enforcement officers may help to reduce their resistance to change, particularly in those mandated for treatment, thus increasing the benefits of the intervention. We also suggest that future research examining the value of MI specifically for law enforcement professionals is warranted. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • College students’ perceptions of depressed mood: Exploring accuracy
           and associations.
    • Authors: Geisner; Irene M.; Kirk, Jennifer L.; Mittmann, Angela J.; Kilmer, Jason R.; Larimer, Mary E.
      Abstract: College is a time of high risk for depressed mood. Theories about depression (i.e., cognitive theory and depressive realism theory) are well researched, but suggest different venues of understanding the cognitive underpinnings of mood. In addition, much research is available about normative perceptions around substance use and how those perceptions relate to behaviors. However, there are no studies examining normative perceptions around depressed mood nor how these perceptions may relate to students’ own well-being. Undergraduates (N = 1,577) ages 18–24 responded to an online survey as part of a larger study on drinking and depressed mood. The survey assessed symptoms of depression and feelings of sadness, depression, and suicidal ideation experienced in the past 2 weeks, as well as students’ perceptions of the prevalence of these feelings among other students. Rates of sadness and depression reported in the sample were relatively high; whereas rates of reported suicidal ideation were low. Most students underestimated the prevalence of sadness and depression experienced by other students; a finding that was especially true for male students. Conversely, most students overestimated the prevalence of suicidal ideation. Students who reported experiencing a given feeling in the past 2 weeks perceived greater rates of the feeling among other students. Depression symptoms were associated with both greater perceived prevalence of sadness, depression and suicidal ideation, as well as correct and overestimates of the prevalence of sadness and depression. Implications for future directions in prevention and interventions efforts are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Avoiding a clash of the titans: A literature- and experience-based
           discussion of considerations for preventing and managing challenging
           caregiver behaviors throughout child-focused family therapy.
    • Authors: Perle; Jonathan G.
      Abstract: Presenting for a variety of reasons, a caregiver that exhibits behaviors that make them challenging to work with (e.g., stress, hostility, questioning, psychopathology) may prevent or impede gains when working within the context of a child-focused family therapy (i.e., therapy involving caregivers in the planning and implementation of child-centered treatments). Although some work has addressed the challenging patient, little research is available that has concisely translated such information into considerations, recommendations, and tips for preventatively facilitating strong rapport or managing any recognized challenging behaviors that the caregiver of the identified child patient may exhibit. For this reason, the current article aims to provide an integration of literature and clinician experience to provide practice-oriented considerations for those conducting child-focused behavioral or cognitive–behavioral family-based interventions. Discussion begins by outlining the initial contact and preparation with the family before reviewing techniques for ongoing treatment. Considerations for situations in which hostility, confrontation, or anger arises toward the clinician, as well as the patient (i.e., the child) are then discussed. Finally, clinician-focused factors to consider are examined. Effectively negotiating challenging caregiver behaviors within the context of a child treatment can enable clinicians to provide the often necessary and beneficial treatment that would otherwise not be possible. Through integration of proposed preventative and management considerations, a clinician may facilitate a strong relationship with the family, work to repair any ruptures in the relationship, and negotiate challenges brought forth by the challenging caregiver to avoid therapeutic disruptions or premature termination.

  • Men’s perinatal mental health in the transition to fatherhood.
    • Authors: Singley; Daniel B.; Edwards, Lisa M.
      Abstract: While fathers have come to be more involved with their partners and infants throughout the perinatal period, recent research has shown that roughly 10% of new dads experience mental health difficulties including depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, few psychologists receive focused training regarding conceptualizing, assessing, or treating common men’s issues in the period spanning from conception through a year post-partum. Because men tend not to seek mental health services during this period, the lack of scholarly attention to this vulnerable group reflects a commonly overlooked public mental health disparity. This article provides an overview of the key factors which research and theory suggest inform new fatherhood, along with an in-depth look at paternal postpartum depression. Implications for further practice and research are discussed. Specifically, the authors review psychosocial factors including masculine socialization, self-efficacy, social support, involvement with babies, and paternal postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Finally, implications for research and practice are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Chronic noncancer pain and opioids: Risks, benefits, and the public health
    • Authors: Bailey; Robert W.; Vowles, Kevin E.
      Abstract: Psychologists involved with treatment teams deciding whether to pursue opioid pharmacotherapy for patients with chronic noncancer pain face a challenging dilemma. Although opioids offer a valuable treatment option for the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic pain, these medications also pose a significant risk for aberrant use among a subset of patients. The lack of clear information on this topic makes it difficult to determine how to proceed in professional practice. Notwithstanding empirical efforts to examine this complex issue, the prevalence rates of opioid abuse and dependence vary widely, and the accuracy in which the most popular assessment methods can predict aberrant use remains unclear. Furthermore, there is a paucity of data on the extent to which the long-term use of opioids can contribute to improvements in functioning and quality of life. The present paper highlights the key issues for this topic relevant to professional psychologists by reviewing the evidence regarding the benefits and risks associated with opioid use as a treatment for chronic pain and exploring areas of significant concern relevant to public health policy. At the current time, there are no simple solutions to this dilemma, and this review concludes with areas in need of further research in order to help clinicians make more informed decisions.
