In clinical practice many adult patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) ask for an additional psychotherapeutic intervention besides the medical therapy. In this paper we present a structured skill training program particularly tailored for adult patients with ADHD. The program is based on the principles of cognitive-behavioral(More)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a serious mental disorder that often persists in adulthood. In a pilot study, a structured skills training group program for adult ADHD led to significant symptomatic improvements. The present study evaluated the program's effectiveness, feasibility, and patient acceptability in a multicenter setting.(More)
OBJECTIVE Shame is considered to be a central emotion in borderline personality disorder and to be related to self-injurious behavior, chronic suicidality, and anger-hostility. However, its level and impact on people with borderline personality disorder are largely unknown. The authors examined levels of self-reported shame, guilt, anxiety, and implicit(More)
BACKGROUND States of strong aversive inner tension and dissociative symptoms are clinical hallmarks of borderline personality disorder and major reasons for self-injurious behavior, a severe clinical condition for which there are no established pharmacologic treatment options. METHOD The acute effect of 75 and 150 microg of clonidine administered orally(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown depression-like sleep abnormalities in borderline personality disorder (BPD). However, findings in BPD are not unequivocal for REM dysregulation, as well as for a decrement of slow wave sleep and sleep continuity disturbances. Earlier findings in sleep EEG abnormalities in BPD may have been confounded by concomitant(More)
Summary form only given. Mechatronic systems request for high reliability, especially in the context of time where mostly hard real-time capabilities are mandatory. May be even stronger requirements regard the robustness against software failures and interdependences from erroneous tasks to others. We propose the concept of robust partitioning for reliable(More)
Antidepressants and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) have been reported to decrease severity of psychopathology in PTSD-patients. To date, no study has been carried out which compares psychopharmacolo-gical and psychotherapeutic treatments. In a randomized pilot study, PTSD-patients were treated either with paroxetine or CBT. Diagnoses were made by(More)
This paper describes a new interconnect standard, the Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI, ANSI/IEEE Std 1596-1992), and new developments in parallel computer architecture that become possible by this technology. For instance, using SCI, shared-memory multiprocessors can be built from standard desktop machines at low costs. The technical features and(More)
This paper presents a framework for specification and testing of component-based embedded systems using formal description techniques (FDTs). We deal with embedded systems from the point of view of communication and thus we propose a communication model for them. We further explain the meaning of component-based embedded systems and how these can be(More)
