Nonsuicidal self-injury by E. David Klonsky( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a baffling, troubling, and hard to treat phenomenon that has increased markedly in recent years. Key issues in diagnosing and treating NSSI adequately include differentiating it from attempted suicide and other mental disorders, as well as understanding the motivations for self-injury and the context in which it occurs. This accessible and practical book provides therapists and students with a clear understanding of these key issues, as well as of suitable assessment techniques. It then goes on to delineate research-informed treatment approaches for NSSI, with an emphasis on functional assessment, emotion regulation, and problem solving, including motivational interviewing, interpersonal skills, CBT, DBT, behavioral management strategies, delay behaviors, exercise, family therapy, risk management, and medication, as well as how to successfully combine methods
The psychology of Twilight by E. David Klonsky( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It doesn't take a trained psychologist to see that the Twilight Saga has tapped into its readers' psyches, but psychology has plenty to offer when it comes to understanding what makes Twilight so dearly loved. Led by husband-and-wife team E. David Klonksy, PhD, and Alexis Black, the psychologists contributing to The Psychology of Twilight look at love, family, vampires, werewolves, and our Twilight obsession, and offer more than a dozen fascination new angles on the series--just in time for the November 2011 release of Breaking Dawn, part one. Why Edward captivates Bella (it's not the perfect face or chiseled abs--it's as chemical as Edward's attraction to the smell of Bella's blood) Vampirism as eating disorder (and what we can learn from how the Cullens cope) Twilight's rejection of strict dualities like good/evil and human/monster and what that has to do with the way our minds process experience and information The psychological benefits of Twilight fandom. and more fresh insights into the series that's enthralled millions"-

How Affective Science Can Inform Clinical Science( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The construct of emotion dysregulation has been used to describe and explain diverse psychopathologies. Although this is intuitively appealing and sensible, the application of emotion reactivity and regulation to the study of psychopathology has, to a large extent, proceeded independently from concepts and measures informed by affective science. Utilizing the innovative research approaches, measures, paradigms, and insights that have emerged in the burgeoning field of affective science holds substantial promise for emotion dysregulation theories of psychopathology. In this introduction to the special series on emotions and psychopathology, we review many of these advances, and highlight several broad methodological and conceptual issues that researchers seeking to continue this crosscutting work should bear in mind. We close with a brief review of the six articles that constitute the special series, noting how each exemplifies the pioneering methodological and substantive advances that are typical of the best work in this new interdisciplinary field
The relationship of perfectionism to suicide ideation and attempts in a large online sample( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Perfectionism is a personality construct hypothesized to increase suicide risk. Previous research observed greater levels of perfectionism among those with histories of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. However, it is unclear whether perfectionism is best conceptualized as a predictor of suicide ideation, suicide attempts among ideators, or both. To answer this question, we recruited a large online US-based sample to examine differences on two self-report measures of perfectionism among participants with (1) a history of suicide attempts (attempters; n=107), (2) a history of suicide ideation but no history of suicide attempts (ideators; n=164), and (3) no history of either suicide ideation or suicide attempts (nonsuicidal; n=194). Medium effect size differences were obtained on two dimensions of perfectionism: Socially Prescribed Perfectionism (d =0.47) and Nondisplay of Imperfection (d =0.53) were both higher in ideators compared to nonsuicidal participants. These differences remained statistically significant when controlling for symptoms of depression and anxiety. In contrast, when comparing ideators to attempters, only small to negligible differences were obtained on all dimensions of perfectionism (d range=0.00-0.26). Our findings suggest that perfectionism is likely associated with the development of suicide ideation, but not the progression from suicide ideation to suicide attempts. Highlights: Compared perfectionism in suicide attempters, ideators, and nonsuicidal individuals Two types of perfectionism were higher in ideators than nonsuicidal individuals. Perfectionism was similar between suicide ideators and attempters. Perfectionism predicts ideation better than attempts among ideators
Decreased Neural Response to Threat Differentiates Patients Who Have Attempted Suicide From Nonattempters With Current Ideation( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Suicide prevention efforts have not slowed suicide rates, in part because of limited understanding of differences in risk for suicide ideation versus suicide attempts. Reduced fear of pain and death may be key to this distinction. In the present study we examine whether blunted neural response to threat of death, bodily harm, or illness, measured by the late positive potential (LPP), differentiates individuals who had previously attempted suicide from individuals who had never attempted suicide, controlling for current levels of suicidal ideation. We compared psychiatric outpatients with no history of suicide attempts (n = 152) and those with a history of suicide attempts (n = 83). Attempters exhibited a blunted threat-elicited LPP compared to patients with no history of attempts, regardless of current ideation. Findings suggest diminished neural response to threat can distinguish attempters from ideators and might be a target for future research on the transition from ideation to action
Assessing cognitive impairment using PROMIS® applied cognition-abilities scales in a medical outpatient sample( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Having a brief, standardized, reliable, and valid self-rated test of perceived cognitive functioning could be beneficial in psychiatry clinical practice, research, and clinical trials. The PROMIS ® Applied Cognition-Abilities scales were developed, evaluated, and distributed by the National Institutes of Health to measure perceived cognitive functioning. This study examines several aspects of the reliability and validity of the PROMIS ® Applied Cognition-Abilities eight and four-item scales in a sample of adult and older adult medical outpatients (N =148). Internal consistency reliability was high for both PROMIS ® cognition scales. The brief four-item scale was highly correlated with the full eight-item scale (r s =0.98). There was a moderate correlation between the PROMIS ® Applied Cognition-Abilities scales and measures of depression (PHQ-9) and anxiety (GAD-7). Subgroups of participants screening positively for depression or anxiety reported significantly worse cognitive functioning than medical controls, with large effect sizes. The base rates of individual items endorsed by depressed, anxious, and control participants are reported. More than 42% of depressed and anxious participants reported problems with their memory and concentration compared with fewer than 8% of medical controls. The field would benefit from studies using the PROMIS ® Applied Cognition-Abilities scales in more demographically diverse samples and with other established measures of cognition. Highlights: We examine the reliability and validity of two versions of a brief cognition screen. Both versions of the cognition screen had high internal consistency. The cognition screen was moderately correlated with depression and anxiety screens. Depressed and anxious participants reported greater cognitive impairment. The base rates of individual items in three samples is reported
