The veridicality and reactivity of children's self-report of covert and overt memory strategies were investigated in a task allowing a direct comparison of self-report and the strategy observed. External memory strategies (e.g., moving objects) were investigated with 7-, 9-, 11-, and 17-year-old typical children and 11- and 17-year-old children with mild(More)
BACKGROUND A growing body of evidence supports the Behavioral Activation System (BAS) dyresgulation model of bipolar disorder, however its application to bipolar II disorder is limited. The current study examines its potential relevance to bipolar I and II disorders. We specifically sought to determine whether bipolar sub-types would differ in terms of BAS(More)
While psychotherapies are of established value, they may, as active treatments, risk adverse outcomes. As there is no validated measure of potentially negative psychotherapeutic ingredients, we sought to develop such a measure for use in psychotherapy evaluation studies. Based on a review of the literature, a 103-item experiential measure was derived.(More)
West Virginia University (WVU) has multiple campuses in various and often remote areas of the state in addition to its main campus in Morgantown. Starting in August 2007, WVU's Office of Information Technology has offered a few synchronous online professional development training sessions to faculty via Wimba Classroom as an alternative to trainers(More)
BACKGROUND DNA polymerase zeta (Polζ) is a specialized DNA polymerase that, unlike classical replicative polymerases, is capable of replicating past DNA lesions, i.e. of performing translesion synthesis (TLS). The catalytic subunit of hPolζ, hRev3, has been shown to play a critical role in DNA damage-induced mutagenesis in human cells, but less is known(More)
BACKGROUND The Experiences of Therapy Questionnaire (ETQ) is a reliable measure of adverse effects associated with psychotherapy. The measure has not been subject to validity analyses. This study sought to examine the validity of the ETQ by comparison against a measure of therapist satisfaction. METHODS Participants were recruited from the Black Dog(More)
Current diagnostic criteria define bipolar I (BP I) and bipolar II (BP II) disorders as distinct conditions, differing only slightly by clinical features. This review seeks to identify commonalities and differentiating features across the two sub-types, and emphasize that differences in causes and treatments are likely to be highly dependent on the(More)
BACKGROUND There is limited research examining temperament and personality in bipolar II disorder. We sought to determine any over-represented temperament and personality features in bipolar II disorder compared to other affective groups. METHOD Scores on a self-report measure of temperament and personality were examined in a sample of 443 participants(More)
Multiple approaches have been adopted in an attempt to effectively identify and discriminate melancholic and non-melancholic depressive subtypes. We recently developed the Sydney Melancholia Prototype Index (SMPI) which incorporates antecedent and illness course variables as well as symptoms, with clinician-rated and self-rated SMPI versions, and with the(More)
