  • Comment on “Serving transgender youth: Challenges, dilemmas, and
           clinical examples” by Tishelman et al. (2015).
    • Authors: Zucker; Kenneth J.
      Abstract: Comments on the article “Serving transgender youth: Challenges, dilemmas, and clinical examples” by Tishelman et al. (see record 2015-06830-005). In their informative essay on transgender youth, Tishelman et al. wrote that “The Amsterdam group opened the first specialized gender identity clinic for children and adolescents in 1987 . . .” (p. 38). This is inaccurate and the current author corrects the historical record. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

      Abstract: Replies to the comments made by Kenneth J. Zucker (see record 2015-34242-004) on the authors' original article, "Serving transgender youth: Challenges, dilemmas, and clinical examples” (see record 2015-06830-005). We appreciate the correction of the historical record that the Amsterdam clinic was the third and not the first specialty clinic to serve gender dysphoric children and youth. The clinics in Los Angeles and Toronto should be recognized for their pioneering work in this important field. Our intent was to highlight the critical role of the Amsterdam group, the first pediatric academic hospital-based program to provide pubertal suppression for transgender adolescents.

  • Using scholarship on whistleblowing to inform peer ethics reporting.
    • Authors: Rice; Alexander J.
      Abstract: The Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (American Psychological Association, 2010) charges psychologists with upholding the standards of the profession, and states that they should approach or report peers who are engaging in unethical behavior. However, peer-reporting by psychologists is not well documented, and knowledge in this area could be augmented by research on whistleblowing and peer-reporting in other professions. This research points to 3 factors that could influence peer-reporting by psychologists: individual factors, such as biases in processing peer behavior; situational factors, such as the potential costs and benefits of reporting in each case; and factors related to the organizational culture in which the psychologists work. In light of this research, recommendations are made for how individual psychologists and organizations might increase their awareness of, and improve their response to, ethical violations.

  • Immigrant perceptions of therapists’ cultural competence: A
           qualitative investigation.
    • Authors: Rogers-Sirin; Lauren; Melendez, Frances; Refano, Christie; Zegarra, Yessica
      Abstract: Over the past decades, there has been a concerted effort to increase therapists’ cultural competence in the American Psychological Association, American Counseling Association, and graduate programs that train mental health practitioners. Has this effort resulted in positive therapy experiences for immigrant clients? Currently, little is known about what immigrants actually experience behind the closed doors of therapy rooms. The purpose of the current study was to gather client level data from immigrants regarding their perceptions of their therapists’ cultural competence. This study used a modified Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR) approach using interview data gathered from immigrant college students who had been in therapy. Ten immigrant college students answered questions about their therapy experiences, including questions about what they did and did not find helpful, and what they did and did not like about their therapy experiences. They also answered open ended questions about how they felt culture may have related to their reasons for seeking therapy, and their experiences in therapy. Data were organized into culturally competent and incompetent behaviors. Relevance to the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD) multicultural competencies are discussed.

  • Correction to Tishelman et al. (2015).
    • Authors: No authorship indicated
      Abstract: Reports an error in "Serving transgender youth: Challenges, dilemmas, and clinical examples" by Amy C. Tishelman, Randi Kaufman, Laura Edwards-Leeper, Francie H. Mandel, Daniel E. Shumer and Norman P. Spack (Professional Psychology: Research and Practice, 2015[Feb], Vol 46[1], 37-45). The Author Note did not acknowledge funding from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) grant 1T32HD075727-01. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2015-06830-005.) Historically, many gender variant individuals have lived in a chronic state of conflict between self-understanding and physical being, one in which there was a continual misalignment between others’ perceptions of them and their internal self-perception of gender. Only recently have professionals from mental health and medical realms come together to provide services to these youth. This article describes an innovative program: the first mental health and medical multidisciplinary clinic housed in a pediatric academic center in North America to serve the needs of gender variant youth. We describe our model of care, focusing on the psychologist’s role within a multidisciplinary team and the mental health needs of the youth and families assisted. We highlight clinical challenges and provide practice clinical vignettes to illuminate the psychologist’s critical role. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • North American psychologists’ experiences of stalking, threatening,
           and harassing behavior: A survey of ABPP diplomates.
    • Authors: Kivisto; Aaron J.; Berman, Ashleigh; Watson, Malorie; Gruber, Devona; Paul, Hannah
      Abstract: Most psychologists will be confronted by clients who stalk, threaten, or harass them at some point in their career. Despite the predictability of these challenges, most psychologists feel unprepared for managing them based on the training they receive. This study examined (a) the prevalence and types of stalking, threatening, and harassing behavior (STHB) experienced by highly trained North American psychologists (N = 157); (b) differences in the nature and extent of STHB that psychologists practicing in different specialty areas and endorsing different theoretical orientations experience; (c) the types of risk management responses that these experienced clinicians found most (and least) effective; and (d) the personality characteristics of clients who engage in STHB using a clinician-rated standardized measure of personality (SWAP-P). Nearly 3 in 4 psychologists in this sample had been harassed at some point in their career, more than 1 in 5 threatened, and about 1 in 7 stalked. A majority of these highly trained psychologists reported feeling unprepared for these challenges. Results indicate a range of generally effective risk management strategies along with several clinical strategies that appear relatively more likely to make these situations worse. Forensic psychologists experienced STHB at rates nearly twice as high as nonforensic psychologists, and psychologists endorsing a psychodynamic orientation experienced higher rates of STHB than those endorsing a cognitive–behavioral orientation. The implications of these findings are discussed in terms of the need for improved access for psychologists to empirically informed risk management training and recommendations for practice are offered.

  • “I just can’t, I am frightened for my safety, I don’t
           know how to work with her”: Practitioners’ experiences of
           client violence and recommendations for future practice.
    • Authors: Jussab; Fardin; Murphy, Helen
      Abstract: To what extent is the therapist–client relationship damaged following client-perpetuated violence, and what steps can we take to diminish its impact? Much of the information we have on client violence comes from multiple mental health disciplines in the U.S. and the U.K. over the last 20 to 30 years and has formed a useful, though sometimes dated and sporadic, quantitative baseline to delineate a range of issues. However, there is limited systematic research on how practitioner psychologists process the violence in the course of their everyday practice and how this impacts the therapist–client dynamic. Using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), we explored 7 therapists’ experiences of client violence across a range of work sites—acute psychiatric hospital wards, forensic hospital wards, and community mental health teams. Three main themes were documented: processing the moment-to-moment experience of client violence; professional vulnerabilities and needs as a result of client violence; and the ruptured therapeutic relationship. Strategies for supporting practicing psychologists and providing continuing professional care for clients include challenging self-doubt and reenergizing professional competencies as well as repairing ourselves and repairing the therapeutic relationship. Recommendations for credentialing and regulatory bodies in relation to client violence are also highlighted. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Psychological evaluations for firearm ownership: Legal foundations,
           practice considerations, and a conceptual framework.
    • Authors: Pirelli; Gianni; Wechsler, Hayley; Cramer, Robert J.
      Abstract: In the present article, we present a framework we developed for practitioners conducting psychological evaluations in civilian firearm ownership matters. These evaluations should be grounded in forensic psychology principles and those specifically related to forensic mental health assessment (FMHA); however, they represent a unique class of assessments with a particular set of considerations. The framework we developed is based on a number of empirically driven considerations and domains that reflect the contemporary bodies of literature associated with firearm-related issues in the context of mental illness, violence and suicide risk assessment, and FMHA more generally. We also present considerations for research and practice. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Ten parental alienation fallacies that compromise decisions in court and
           in therapy.
    • Authors: Warshak; Richard A.
      Abstract: False beliefs about the genesis of parental alienation and about appropriate remedies shape opinions and decisions that fail to meet children’s needs. This article examines 10 mistaken assumptions: (a) children never unreasonably reject the parent with whom they spend the most time, (b) children never unreasonably reject mothers, (c) each parent contributes equally to a child’s alienation, (d) alienation is a child’s transient, short-lived response to the parents’ separation, (e) rejecting a parent is a short-term healthy coping mechanism, (f) young children living with an alienating parent need no intervention, (g) alienated adolescents’ stated preferences should dominate custody decisions, (h) children who appear to function well outside the family need no intervention, (i) severely alienated children are best treated with traditional therapy techniques while living primarily with their favored parent, and (j) separating children from an alienating parent is traumatic. Reliance on false beliefs compromises investigations and undermines adequate consideration of alternative explanations for the causes of a child’s alienation. Most critical, fallacies about parental alienation shortchange children and parents by supporting outcomes that fail to provide effective relief to those who experience this problem.

  • Beliefs about therapist suggestiveness and memory veracity in
           recovered-memory therapy: An analogue study.
    • Authors: Myers; Bryan; Myers, Jennifer; Herndon, Phillip; Broszkiewicz, Nastassia; Tar, Maria
      Abstract: Recovered-memory therapy (RMT) is controversial, largely because the practice is regarded by many memory experts as highly suggestible. However, we know little about how the public regards these practices. A sample of college students (N = 118) was randomly assigned to watch 1 of 4 videotaped enactments of a series of therapy sessions in which the client eventually reported a recovered memory of childhood sexual abuse. The therapy conditions were identical except for the level of suggestiveness employed by the therapist (i.e., control, expectation, guided imagery, hypnosis). The results indicated that participants in the expectation, guided-imagery, and hypnosis groups saw the therapist as significantly more suggestive than those in the control condition. However, participants judged the competency of the therapist and the veracity of the memory reports equally high across all 4 conditions. These findings suggest that the lay public may recognize the suggestive practices of therapists engaged in RMT, but they fail to see their relation to the accuracy of the memories reported by clients, or question the competence of the therapist.

  • Temperament traits, social support, and secondary traumatic stress
           disorder symptoms in a sample of trauma therapists.
    • Abstract: Secondary traumatic stress disorder (STSD) consists of identical symptoms as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but while PTSD originates from direct exposition to a traumatic event, STSD is a consequence of indirect exposure to trauma due to close personal contact with a trauma victim. This article examines the severity of STSD symptoms and their relationship to temperament traits and social support in a sample (N = 80) of trauma therapists in Poland. In our study, we controlled for demographic data, such as the therapist’s gender and age, and for work-related variables, such as the average number of years working as a trauma therapist, the average number of patients therapists worked with over the past 12 months, and whether therapists sought supervision for their therapeutic work. Participants filled out 3 questionnaires: the PTSD Questionnaire: Factorial Version; the Formal Characteristics of Behavior-Temperament Inventory; and the Berlin Social Support Scale. The level of STSD symptoms among trauma therapists was related to temperament traits, emotional reactivity and sensory sensitivity, as well as to perceived social support. Emotional reactivity was positively associated with level of STSD symptoms, whereas sensory sensitivity and perceived social support were negatively related to level of STSD symptoms. There was no significant relationship between therapists’ demographic characteristics and work-related variables and intensity of STSD symptoms.

  • Psychological evaluations in family law proceedings: A systematic review
           of the contemporary literature.
    • Authors: Zumbach; Jelena; Koglin, Ute
      Abstract: Over the past several decades, empirical research on psychological evaluations in family law proceedings has identified strengths and weaknesses in this important area of assessment (Bow, 2006; Saini, 2008). This systematic review aims to provide a current and comprehensive summary of empirical research findings on psychological evaluation practice. Twenty studies published from 1997 to 2013 in North America were included from a systematic literature search and analyzed in detail. Results are presented for a number of evaluation-related parameters, such as the kind of mental health professional evaluating, the assessment methods applied in evaluation practice, evaluator’s recommendations, and mental health characteristics of the evaluated families. Results are displayed both for evaluations in cases of child custody and visitation rights and for evaluations in cases of termination of parental rights. Current strengths and weaknesses in evaluation practice and evaluation research are discussed. Recommendations for practice and future research are considered.

  • Clinical approaches to addressing spiritual struggle in veterans with
    • Authors: Sherman; Michelle D.; Harris, J. Irene; Erbes, Christopher
      Abstract: Trauma survivors often face difficult spiritual challenges as they attempt to reconcile the experience of trauma with their spiritual/religious beliefs. Spirituality has been found to be associated with a range of indices of well-being, and it is a component of many clients’ coping skills and treatment strategies. However, many clinicians do not routinely assess or incorporate this domain of functioning in psychological services. This article describes a model for conceptualizing how trauma can impact spirituality by reviewing the possible consequences of each posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom cluster on clients’ belief systems and spiritual practices. Specific implications for treatment are described for each symptom cluster. A case study highlights many of the spirituality issues and intervention options described in this model. Ethical issues surrounding addressing spiritual factors in trauma survivors are considered, and clinicians are encouraged to further explore this domain with their clients.
