Fifteen-Year Prevalence, Trajectories, and Predictors of Body Dissatisfaction From Adolescence to Middle Adulthood
TLDR
There may be a critical period for body image development during childhood/early adolescence and Clinicians should intervene with clients experiencing body dissatisfaction before it becomes chronic and target depression, self-esteem, parent/child connectedness, and responses to teasing and peer dieting.
Core psychopathology of treatment-seeking patients with binge-eating disorder: a network analysis investigation
TLDR
The results provide support for including shape/weight overvaluation as a diagnostic specifier for binge-eating disorder (BED), the most prevalent eating disorder in the United States.
Rumination in Patients with Binge‐Eating Disorder and Obesity: Associations with Eating‐Disorder Psychopathology and Weight‐bias Internalization
TLDR
It is suggested that, among patients with BED/obesity, rumination is an important cognitive process associated with severity of eating-disorder psychopathology even after accounting for overvaluation of shape/weight.
Longitudinal predictors of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors in sexual and gender minority adolescents.
TLDR
Investigating attitudes based on SGM identity, depression, self-criticism, body image, family support and family strain, friend NSSI engagement, and experiences of everyday discrimination suggests that minority-specific factors may predict SITBs in SGM adolescents.
Using the Comparison Curve Fix Index (CCFI) in Taxometric Analyses: Averaging Curves, Standard Errors, and CCFI Profiles
TLDR
A series of simulation studies examine the use of the CCFI to flesh out some empirically supported guidelines and find that constructing a CCFI profile can help to differentiate categorical and dimensional data and provide a less biased and more precise estimate of the taxon base rate than conventional methods.
Which Brief Is Best? Clarifying the Use of Three Brief Versions of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale
TLDR
Examining the existing brief DERS measures on internal reliability and concurrent validity indices in a large sample of undergraduate students suggested that it may be useful for future research and clinical work to use brief versions that retain subscale scores.
Restrictive eating is associated with emotion regulation difficulties in a non-clinical sample
TLDR
Findings indicate that endorsement of restrictive eating among non-clinical individuals is uniquely associated with emotion regulation deficits, especially those reflecting emotional under-control.
Rumination mediates the associations between sexual minority stressors and disordered eating, particularly for men
TLDR
Sexual minority men who experience discrimination and conceal their sexual orientation may engage in more disordered eating because they dwell on sexual minority stigma, and other potential mechanisms that may be relevant for sexual minority women are proposed.
Ethical dilemmas posed by mobile health and machine learning in psychiatry research
TLDR
This review highlights emerging ethical challenges and unresolved ethical questions in mobile health research and provides recommendations on how mobile health researchers can address these issues in practice.
Model complexity improves the prediction of nonsuicidal self-injury.
TLDR
This study examined the accuracy of three different model types, of increasing complexity, in predicting NSSI across 3, 14, and 28 days and demonstrated that model complexity was associated with predictive accuracy.
