Both normative personality and DSM-IV personality disorders have been found to be heritable.
Metacognitive theory proposes that depression is caused by excessive rumination, which is in turn maintained by maladaptive positive and negative beliefs about rumination (“metacognitions”) and reduced executive control.
The 17th-century philosopher René Descartes’s radical new understanding of psychological phenomena is usually presented very inaccurately in psychological literature.
Social hierarchies occur across human societies, so all humans must navigate them.
The development of individual cognitive domains over time is not yet fully examined in first-episode schizophrenia (FES).
Traumatic events by young people can adversely affect their psychological and social well-being when left untreated.
Depression is a complex disorder with large interindividual variability in symptom profiles that often occur alongside symptoms of other psychiatric domains, such as anxiety.
Although suicidal ideation is one of the most consistent symptoms across recurrent episodes of depression, the mechanisms underpinning its maintenance are poorly understood.
Posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) are associated with serious impairments in psychological, social, and academic functioning in youth.
The purpose of this qualitative enquiry was to map the psychological motives behind sustainable lifestyles.
OBJECTIVE: To understand the meaning of trauma narration, we examined changes in the trauma narratives of youth receiving trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and explored the relationship between changes in narratives and in posttraumatic stress.
Resilience is successful adaptation despite adversity.
In contrast to the DSM-5, which expanded the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptom profile to 20 symptoms, a workgroup of the upcoming ICD-11 suggested a reduced symptom profile with six symptoms for PTSD.
What makes young people—most often young women—inflict damage on their own bodies?
Continued advances in neuroimaging technologies and statistical modelling capabilities have improved our knowledge of structural brain development in children and adolescents.
Maternal postnatal depression has been associated with a broad range of developmental risk among children.
Persons exposed to torture have suffered serious attacks on their lives, relationships, health, and sense of dignity.
How personality traits relate to structural brain changes in development is an important but understudied question.
Some past events incite more wonder about their causes than do others.
Whiplash-Associated Disorders (WAD) are characterized by great variability in long-term symptoms.
There is need for more efficient treatment of neurocognitive deficits in schizophrenia.
Two streams of research looking at referent-dependent judgments from slightly different angles are subadditivity research and research on the nonselective superiority bias.
The event-related P3 potential, as elicited in auditory signal detection tasks, originates from neural activity of multiple cortical structures and presumably reflects an overlap of several cognitive processes.
Forecasts of future outcomes, such as the consequences of climate change, are given with different degrees of precision.
Diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) continues to grow in popularity as a useful neuroimaging method to study brain development, and longitudinal studies that track the same individuals over time are emerging.
