ADHD May Mask Autism in Young Kids: This might lead to delay in getting the right diagnosis and treatment, experts say
Symptoms attributed to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may overshadow or mask autism spectrum disorder in very young children, a new study reveals. This can create a significant delay in the diagnosis of autism. It took an average of three years longer to diagnose autism in children initially thought to have just ADHD, the researchers said.

Homophobic people often have psychological issues
Homophobic attitudes may say a lot about the person who holds them, new research suggests. A new study of university students in Italy revealed that people who have strongly negative views of gay people also have higher levels of psychoticism and inappropriate coping mechanisms than those who are accepting of homosexuality.

Social media pressure may lead to anxiety, depression in teens
New research sheds light on teenagers' use of social media, suggesting the pressure to be online 24 hours a day disrupts their sleep patterns and may lead to mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression. The research team - including Dr. Heather Cleland Woods and Holly Scott from the University of Glasgow in the UK - recently presented their findings at The British Psychological Society (BPS) Developmental and Social Psychology Section Annual Conference in ...

Higher fish consumption linked to reduced risk of depression
A high intake of fish is frequently regarded as being part of a healthy diet. Now, researchers suggest that eating a large amount of fish could also reduce the risk of depression. The meta-analysis, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, looked at data from relevant studies published between 2001 and 2014. "Higher fish consumption may be beneficial in the primary prevention of depression," the authors write. "Future studies are needed to ...

How can one assess the effectiveness of hypnosis?
Although hypnosis has existed for hundreds of years, today it is still difficult to clearly judge its usefulness in the medical domain. In a report submitted to the French Directorate General for Health, researchers from Inserm led by Bruno Falissard assessed the effectiveness of this complementary medical practice for some of its indications (women’s health, digestive ailments, surgery, psychiatry, etc.). The latter illustrates its therapeutic value during anaesthesia, and in the ...

Mothers Help Daughters Obtain Positive Body Image
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) research demonstrates how mothers’ emphasis on the many aspects of well being, fitness and a sense of self-fulfillment helps to counteract the innumerable “ideal” body images seen and heard by their daughters in the mass media. The new study published in Feminism and Psychology focuses on how mothers instilled resilience in their daughters to combat body dissatisfaction, which can lead to eating disorders.

A new factor in depression? Brain protein discovery could lead to better treatments
Low. Down. Less than normal. That’s what the word depression means, and what people with depression often feel like. But sometimes, depression can mean too much of something – as new research shows. The discovery, about a protein called fibroblast growth factor 9 or FGF9, goes against previous findings that depressed brains often have less of key components than non-depressed brains. In this case, people with major depression had 32 percent more ...

Link between insomnia, control of emotion
People who are losing the ability to regulate their emotions may be more likely to suffer from insomnia. And if they do, that insomnia is more likely to become persistent, research suggests. Researchers surveyed 2333 adult members of the general public in Sweden. They were asked to complete a series of questionnaires on emotional regulation and a series on insomnia. The researchers found that a reduced ability to regulate emotions was associated with ...

One-Third of U.S. Kids With ADHD Diagnosed Before Age 6: But researchers add that few valid tests exist to support diagnosis in children that young
Almost a third of U.S. children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) were diagnosed before the age of 6, even though there aren't many valid tests to support diagnosis in children that young, a new federal government report shows. It's difficult to determine whether the results show overdiagnosis of ADHD or not, said Joel Nigg, director of the division of psychology at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.

Bisexual and Questioning Women Have Higher Risk of Eating Disorders Than Straight and Lesbian Peers
Young women who are attracted to both sexes or who are unsure about who they are attracted to are more likely to develop an eating disorder than those attracted to only one sex, according to a new study from Drexel University. However, the results of the study suggest that females attracted to the same-sex are no more likely to experience disordered eating symptoms than their peers with opposite-sex attractions. This finding is contrary to previous assumptions that ...

Impulsive, Agitated Behaviors May Be Warning Signs for Suicide: New study of more than 2,800 people with depression might give clearer clues to state of mind, experts say
Risky behaviors such as reckless driving or sudden promiscuity, or nervous behaviors such as agitation, hand-wringing or pacing, can be signs that suicide risk may be high in depressed people, researchers report. Other warning signs may include doing things on impulse with little thought about the consequences. Depressed people with any of these symptoms are at least 50 percent more likely to attempt suicide, the new study found.

Borderline personality traits linked to lowered empathy

Confidence in parenting could help break cycle of abuse
To understand how confidence in parenting may predict parenting behaviors in women who were abused as children, psychologists at the University of Rochester have found that mothers who experienced more types of maltreatment as children are more critical of their ability to parent successfully. Intervention programs for moms at-risk, therefore, should focus on bolstering mothers’ self-confidence—not just teach parenting skills, the researchers said.

How Parents Add to Math Anxiety: Voicing concerns, helping with homework may increase child's fear, study finds
Parents can spur math anxiety and poor math performance in children, a new study suggests. "We often don't think about how important parents' own attitudes are in determining their children's academic achievement. But our work suggests that if a parent is walking around saying 'Oh, I don't like math' or 'This stuff makes me nervous,' kids pick up on this messaging and it affects their success," study co-leader Sian Beilock said in a news release from the ...

'Goth' Teens Report More Depression, Self-Harm: But study findings didn't prove cause-and-effect, only showed an association
The dark look associated with Goths may not be all show: Teens in this subculture appear more prone to depression and self-harm than their peers, researchers report. Fifteen-year-olds who strongly identified as Goth -- recognized by their distinctive black clothes, white and black makeup and black hair -- were three times more likely to be depressed at 18 compared with teens who did not identify as Goth, the British researchers found.

ADHD Risk Rises for Each Week a Preemie Is Born Early: Being underweight or overweight at birth also linked to higher odds, study says
The more premature a child is born, the higher the likelihood of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a recent Finnish study. Babies born particularly underweight or overweight for their gestational age also had an increased risk of ADHD, researchers found. "Although ADHD is more common in babies who are either underweight or overweight, the risks are greatest for those babies with the most severe degree of poor growth in the womb," ...

Brains of abused teenagers show 'encouraging' ability to regulate emotions
Children who have been abused typically experience more intense emotions than their peers who have not been abused. This is often considered a byproduct of living in volatile, dangerous environments. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP) set to find out what happens when these children are taught how to regulate their emotions. Could that better help them cope with difficult situations?

Women warriors at no greater risk for PTSD than men, study finds
While past research on the question has been mixed, a new study by Defense and Veterans Affairs researchers suggests that women in the military are at no greater risk than men for developing posttraumatic stress disorder, given similar experiences—including combat. The findings are in the September 2015 Journal of Psychiatric Research. The study involved active-duty troops and Veterans who are part of the Millennium Cohort Study. That effort has more than 200,000 participants ..

Happiness spreads but depression doesn’t
Having friends who suffer from depression doesn’t affect the mental health of others, according to research led by the University of Warwick.

Teen smokers struggle with body-related shame, guilt: Exercise may provide a promising solution to prevention, cessation
Are teen smokers who pick up the habit doing so because they have a negative self-image? Does the typical teenaged smoker try to balance out this unhealthy habit with more exercise? And if so, then why would an adolescent smoke, yet still participate in recommended levels of physical activity? A recent study sought to answer these questions.

Early life adversity and later depression for teens
Tough experiences before age six, like family instability or abuse, are tied to changes in brain structure and to a higher risk of anxiety or depression, according to a study of mother-son pairs in England. “Early adversity increases later symptoms of depression or anxiety, which, in turn, can associate with variation in cortical structure,” said senior author Edward D. Barker of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience at King’s College London.

Increased risk of depression for mothers undergoing fertility treatment
Women giving birth after undergoing fertility treatment face an increased risk of depression compared to women ending up not having a child following fertility treatment, according to new research from the University of Copenhagen.

How to Mend a Broken Heart? Your Gender May Matter: Men don't process experience or seek support to cope with end of relationships, experts say

"At some point, clearly, women get over a breakup," said study author Craig Morris, a research associate at Binghamton University in New York. "They will discuss in great detail the pain, the suffering, the misery, but they are talking about it in the past." Women often "return to the dating scene in many ways better than they were ...

Overreliance on imagination may be a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
Confusing reality with imagination and losing contact with reality are two key characteristics that could play a role in the development of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Many U.S. Adults Sext, and It May Even Help Some Relationships: Survey found three-quarters do so in context of a committed couple
A new survey finds more than eight in 10 adults admit to sending or receiving a sexually explicit text message -- commonly known as "sexting" -- and many say the practice leads to increased sexual satisfaction, particularly when couples are involved. "Most people have focused on the dangers of sexting and how it can harm a relationship," said study lead author Emily Stasko, a doctoral candidate in the department of psychology at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Could Too Many Refined Carbs Make You Depressed? Study found postmenopausal women who ate more processed foods faced higher risk of mood disorder
Refined carbohydrates -- such as those found in white bread, white rice and sodas -- may harm more than the waistlines of older women. New research shows that eating too much of these highly processed foods might also raise their risk of depression. Luckily, the opposite also appears to be true: The analysis also found that those who ate lots of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and dietary fiber appeared to see their risk for depression drop.

Punishing a child is effective if done correctly: Some children need consequences to succeed, psychologists say

Mindfulness Therapy Might Help Ease PTSD: Study found learning to accept disturbing memories, thoughts and feelings reduced symptoms
Mindfulness therapy seems to help veterans cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a new study suggests.

The approach may help those who aren't doing well using existing treatments, said lead researcher Melissa Polusny, a staff psychologist from the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs ...

Even moderate picky eating can have negative effects on children's health
Picky eating among children is a common but burdensome problem that can result in poor nutrition for kids, family conflict, and frustrated parents.

Positive reinforcement plays key role in cognitive task performance in ADHD kids, according to new study
A little recognition for a job well done means a lot to children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – more so than it would for typically developing kids.
