Child multi-type maltreatment and associated depression and PTSD symptoms: the role of social support and stress.
TLDR
Findings support both direct and mediational effects of social resources on adult depression and PTSD symptoms in women with histories of CMM, suggesting that resources are key factors in psychological adjustment of C MM victims. Expand
Socioeconomic status, resources, psychological experiences, and emotional responses: a test of the reserve capacity model.
TLDR
Women with varying socioeconomic status (SES) monitored positive and negative psychosocial experiences and emotions across 2 days to test several tenets of the reserve capacity model and found that lower SES was associated with less perceived control and positive affect and more social strain. Expand
Psychological factors predict disability and pain intensity after skeletal trauma.
TLDR
It is found that psychological factors that are responsive to cognitive behavioral therapy--catastrophic thinking, in particular--are strongly associated with pain intensity and disability in patients recovering from musculoskeletal trauma. Expand
Contribution of kinesophobia and catastrophic thinking to upper-extremity-specific disability.
TLDR
Kinesiophobia and catastrophic thinking were the most important predictors of upper-extremity-specific disability in a model that accounted for symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pathophysiology (diagnosis) and explained more than half of the variation in disability. Expand
The relationship of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression to antiretroviral medication adherence in persons with HIV.
TLDR
Only depression contributed significant unique variance to multiple regression analyses that included both continuous and dichotomous PTSD and depression and controlled for shared variance due to clustering of multiple observations, suggesting the primary role of depression and the secondary role of PTSD in poor adherence in individuals with HIV. Expand
Psychosocial aspects of disabling musculoskeletal pain.
TLDR
The effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy and other treatments that address the psychosocial aspects of disabling musculoskeletal pain has been confirmed in numerous high-quality studies. Expand
Risk factors for continued opioid use one to two months after surgery for musculoskeletal trauma.
TLDR
Patients who continue to use opioid pain medication one to two months after surgery for musculoskeletal trauma have more psychological distress, less effective coping strategies, and greater symptoms and disability than patients who do not take opioids, irrespective of injury, surgical procedure, or surgeon. Expand
The development of a patient-centered program based on the relaxation response: the Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP).
TLDR
The goal of the 3RP is to enhance individuals' adaptive responses to chronic stress through increasing awareness and decreasing the physiological, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral effects of the stress response, while simultaneously promoting the effects of being in the RR. Expand
Quality of life among adult patients with neurofibromatosis 1, neurofibromatosis 2 and schwannomatosis: a systematic review of the literature
TLDR
Visibility and disease severity were strong predictors of skin-specific quality of life in NF1 patients, and psychosocial factors in this population, especially in patients with NF2 and schwannomatosis are examined. Expand
Correlation of DASH and QuickDASH with measures of psychological distress.
TLDR
It is suggested that a shorter and therefore potentially more practical measure of arm-specific disability can be used in studies that evaluate psychosocial aspects of illness behavior. Expand
