Theory and research concerning sexual orientation has been restricted in its scope and influence by the lack of clear and widely accepted definitions of terms like heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual. In an attempt to better demarcate and understand the complexities of human sexual attitudes, emotions, and behavior, the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid(More)
We have previously shown that the mortality of patients with recurrent affective disorders in long-term lithium treatment is not higher than that of the general population. In the present study on 471 patients from Denmark and Germany, we examined mortality during the initial year of lithium treatment and during later lithium treatment. During initial(More)
BACKGROUND Individuals with schizophrenia use psychoactive substances more frequently than the general population. The genetic vulnerability to develop schizophrenia may also increase risk for the development of substance use disorders. We examine this hypothesis by assessing the rates of substance use disorders and nicotine use in non-psychotic siblings of(More)
OBJECTIVE Findings from a recent international multi-centre trial are compatible with the idea that long-term lithium treatment extends the survival of patients suffering from affective disorders to match the general population. A similar reduction of mortality was found in Canadian patients, although important questions remained to be answered about(More)
The present study investigates the psychomotor performance of schizophrenic inpatients receiving neuroleptic medication and comedication according to their clinical demands in regard to their fitness to drive. The hypothesis was tested that even under polydrug medication, the clozapine-treated patients (n = 10) would have a superior performance compared to(More)
Excess mortality has repeatedly been found in patients with recurrent affective disorders. In previous studies our group has shown that during long-term lithium treatment the mortality of such patients is not significantly higher than that of the general population. In the present study, we extended our investigation to 273 patients from the earlier IGSLI(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to estimate the effect of the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) approach compared with usual outpatient rehabilitation on activity and participation in people <3 months poststroke. METHODS An exploratory, single-blind, randomized controlled trial, with a usual-care control arm, was(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of executive function deficits immediately after mild stroke that are known to impact participation in home, work, and community life. Individuals with mild stroke who were discharged from the acute setting to the home with few or no rehabilitation services were assessed within 1 week after discharge(More)
The objective of the study was to determine how performance on cognitive assessments administered in the subacute phase of mild stroke change or remain stable over time. A prospective longitudinal cohort pilot study was used to assess the cognitive status of participants with mild stroke (n = 20) at two time points: (1) within 3 weeks post-discharge from(More)
