Bullying and victimization in elementary schools: a comparison of bullies, victims, bully/victims, and uninvolved preadolescents.
TLDR
It was found that not only victims and bully/victims but bullies as well were disliked and that parenting was unrelated to bullying and victimization once other factors were controlled.
The interplay and etiological continuity of neuroticism, difficulties, and life events in the etiology of major and subsyndromal, first and recurrent depressive episodes in later life.
TLDR
This study demonstrated the usefulness of a dynamic stress-vulnerability model for understanding late-life depression, and evidence was found suggesting etiological discontinuity between first and recurrent but not between major and subsyndromal episodes.
Temperament profiles associated with internalizing and externalizing problems in preadolescence
TLDR
The results suggest clearly diverging temperament profiles for these groups of children, with High-Intensity Pleasure and Shyness steering the conditional probability of internalizing and externalizing problems (direction markers), Frustration mainly being related to maladaptation in general (severity marker), and Fear and Effortful Control being associated with both the severity and the direction ofinternalizing and Externalizing problems, respectively.
Vulnerability before, during, and after a major depressive episode: a 3-wave population-based study.
TLDR
There was no evidence of a negative change from premorbid to postmorbid assessment for any of the personality traits, and 2 independent simultaneous processes are suggested: the ongoing expression of vulnerability as a personality deviance; and synchrony of change between severity of depressive symptoms and personalityDeviance.
Prevalence and severity of DSM-5 eating disorders in a community cohort of adolescents.
TLDR
The most common DSM-5 eating disorder diagnoses in adolescents in the community are anorexia nervosa and binge eating disorder and Severity ratings for eating disorders seem valid in terms of both the distribution in thecommunity and the correlation with detection and treatment by health care services.
Differential susceptibility in youth: evidence that 5-HTTLPR x positive parenting is associated with positive affect ‘for better and worse'
TLDR
Youth homozygous for the functional short allele of 5-HTTLPR were more responsive to parenting as environmental context in a ‘for better and worse’ manner and this findings are consistent with the differential susceptibility hypothesis (DSH).
Internalizing and externalizing problems in adolescence: general and dimension-specific effects of familial loadings and preadolescent temperament traits
TLDR
It is important to distinguish general risk factors from dimension-specific risk factors (Frustration), and direction markers that act as pathoplastic factors (Shyness, High-Intensity Pleasure, Affiliation) from both types of risk factors.
Prevalence, 20-month incidence and outcome of unipolar depressive disorders in a community sample of adolescents.
TLDR
Depressive disorders rarely started before the age of 13, but frequent during adolescence, with an estimated lifetime cumulative incidence of 14%, and subthreshold MDD associated with considerable impairment had an almost identical course and outcome as threshold MDD.
