Measuring psychopathology by Anne Farmer( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measuring Psychopathology describes the methods by which the signs and symptoms of mental disorder are elicited, examined and evaluated.; Written for the non-clinical researcher as well as for those with clinical experience, the authors start by considering the question 'what is psychopathology?' They then employ a historical perspective to explain why and how mental disorders are currently classified, and how the use of an operational approach to diagnosis was adopted. The use of operational criteria to define psychiatric disorder has facilitated the development of standardised interviewing techniques, questionnaires and rating scales. These tools are all covered in some detail, not only with regard to adults with mental disorders, but also with reference to special and challenging groups such as children and the elderly, and those with a learning disability, substance misuse, or who have a personality disorder.; The strengths and weaknesses of current methodologies are explored and debated as well as the future diagnostic needs for research in the 21st century.; Essential reading for clinicians and non-clinical scientists engaged in research on psychiatric disorders, trainees and junior psychiatrists, and clinical psychologists

Can the interaction of poverty and literacy explain some variability of suicide rates in Europe? by Andrej Marušič( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The main aim of the study was to investigate whether literacy rates and gross domestic products interact in predicting national suicide rates in 33 Europeancountries where data for all these rates are available. It resulted that high literacy rates significantly predicted high suicide rates even when controlling for gross domestic product (GDP) and age distribution (r = 0.584; p <0.001). When the GDP per capita was added to the linear regression model, the latter improved considerably (F = 10.801; p <0.001). We concluded that literacy rates may represent an important ecological risk factor for completedsuicides. One potential mechanism for negative impact of high literacy rates could be that high literacy leads to a better understanding of impoverished social circumstances. It is also possible that literacy is just aconfounding variable. For example, suicide statistics might be more reliable in countries with higher levels of literacy. Nevertheless, the striking finding that literacy and suicide rates are associated is worthy of further investigation

Light( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Mark Porter looks at how light is being used to treat conditions as diverse as acne and cancer. Photodynamic therapy using light-sensitive drugs called photosensitisers is being used to destroy tumours. We also hear about Seasonal Affective Disorder, a type of depression that affects people during the onset of the winter months. Finally, laser treatments may provide a cure for many acne sufferers
Epidemiology of suicide risk and gene-environment interaction by Andrej Marušič( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

At first sight, it seems plausible that socio-cultural factors should be the major causes of different suicide rates across the world, however, sucha thesis fails to hold up under closer scrutiny. The main objective of this paper is to ascertain, wheter genetic differences, could at least in part, account for the varying rates of suicide, for example, genetic and environmental risk factors acting additively, undder a multifactorial polygenic mode of inheritance. The main method used was systematic review of scientific papers on environmental, genes and suicidal behaviour. First, we will argue that it is not possible to explain the differences in suicide rates_ across Europe, by socio-cultural differences alone. Second, we will explore the case for shared genetic risk factors influencing the rates of suicide in high-risk countries, using evidence from population genetics. Third, we will speculate on the role of possible interactions between exposureto alcohol and genetic vulnerability. We conclude that there is sufficient evidence to support the need for more genetic research. The proposal that there is a genetic aetiological component to suicidal behaviour does not mean, that psychosocial and other risk factors are not important. If anything, it would make it even more necessary to control environmental risk factors in populations of high genetic risk
