Social cognitive determinants of physical activity in young adults: A prospective structural equation analysis
TLDR
Results of structural equation modeling indicated a good fit of the social cognitive model to the data, and self-efficacy had the greatest total effect on physical activity, mediated largely by self-regulation, which directly predicted physical activity.
Cognitive functioning of long-term heavy cannabis users seeking treatment.
TLDR
It is confirmed that long-term heavy cannabis users show impairments in memory and attention that endure beyond the period of intoxication and worsen with increasing years of regular cannabis use.
Comparison of extended versus brief treatments for marijuana use.
TLDR
Results indicated that marijuana use, dependence symptoms, and negative consequences were reduced significantly in relation to pretreatment levels at 1, 4, 7, 13, and 16-month follow-ups.
A randomized controlled trial of brief cognitive-behavioral interventions for cannabis use disorder.
TLDR
A secondary analysis of the 6CBT and 1CBT groups showed that treatment compliance was significantly associated with decreased dependence and cannabis-related problems, which supports the attractiveness and effectiveness of individual CBT interventions for cannabis use disorders and the need for multisite replication trials.
Treating adult marijuana dependence: a test of the relapse prevention model.
TLDR
Men in the RP condition were more likely than men in the SSP condition to report reduced use without problems at 3-month follow-up, and posttreatment increases in problems associated with alcohol did not appear to relate to reduced marijuana use.
The Marijuana Check-up: promoting change in ambivalent marijuana users.
TLDR
The PF intervention, delivered in the context of a check-up, shows potential as a way of reaching and motivating change in marijuana users with a diagnosable disorder who otherwise are not ready to approach treatment.
Brief counseling for marijuana dependence: a manual for treating adults.
TLDR
Brief intervention using motivational enhancement and cognitive behavioural approaches to encourage abstinence in adolescents with high-risk of alcohol abuse.
Marijuana Dependence and Its Treatment
TLDR
The problems associated with marijuana use, including unique characteristics of marijuana dependence, and the results of laboratory research and treatment trials to date are reviewed.
Adult marijuana users seeking treatment.
TLDR
People who did not report evidence of alcohol or other drug abuse reported less severe consequences of marijuana use and experienced less general psychological distress than those who also reported lifetime or current abuse of other substances in addition to marijuana.
Coping and self-efficacy in marijuana treatment: results from the marijuana treatment project.
TLDR
Results showed that marijuana outcomes were predicted by treatment type and by coping skills use, but that the coping-skills-oriented MET-CB treatment did not result in greater use of coping skills than did the MET treatment, suggesting that mechanisms of cope skills treatment may need to be reconceptualized.
