OBJECTIVE: Understanding how treatments work is a goal of psychotherapy research, however the strength of relationships between therapy processes and outcomes is inconsistent. DeRubeis, Cohen, et al. (2014) proposed that process-outcome relationships are moderated by patient characteristics. These "patient response patterns" (PRPs) indicate individuals' responsiveness to the active ingredients of treatment. Given the same quality of therapy, one individual may receive more benefit than another depending on their PRP...

OBJECTIVE: Findings from multilevel and latent growth modeling analysis (GMA) need to be included in literature reviews, and this article explicates 4 rarely discussed approaches for using GMA studies in meta-analysis. METHOD: Extant and new equations are presented for calculating the effect size (d) and its variance (v) from reported statistics from GMA studies with each method, and a fixed effects meta-analysis of results from 5 randomized clinical trials was conducted to demonstrate their applications...

OBJECTIVE: Cognitive bias modification (CBM) eliminates cognitive biases toward negative information and is efficacious in reducing depression recurrence, but the mechanisms behind the bias elimination are not fully understood. The present study investigated, through computer simulation of neural network models, the neural dynamics underlying the use of CBM in eliminating the negative biases in the way that depressed patients evaluate facial expressions. METHOD: We investigated 2 new CBM methodologies using biologically plausible synaptic learning mechanisms-continuous transformation learning and trace learning-which guide learning by exploiting either the spatial or temporal continuity between visual stimuli presented during training...

OBJECTIVE: Through intensive experience sampling, we studied the practice and development of mindfulness as a dynamic process in time and context. We focused on role(s) and salutary function(s) of mindfulness and decentering for emotional experience over the course of mindfulness practice and development. METHOD: Eighty-two meditation-naive adults from the general community, 52% women, Mage (SD) = 25.05 (3.26) years, participated in a 1-month, 6-session, Mahasi-based mindfulness-training intervention (Mahasi, 1978)...

OBJECTIVE: A key issue in chronic pain treatment concerns the changes necessary for improved physical and emotional functioning. Traditionally, reducing pain intensity and pain-related distress have been viewed as a prerequisite for these improvements. Alternatively, acceptance and commitment therapy, a behavior change approach, theorizes that pain and distress reduction are not necessary for improvement, rather responses must change, such that functioning improves in clearly specified areas (e...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence indicates that children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) experience acute and prolonged academic impairment and underachievement including marked difficulty with completing homework. This study is the first to examine the effects of behavioral, psychostimulant, and combined treatments on homework problems, which have been shown to predict academic performance longitudinally. METHOD: Children with ADHD (ages 5-12, N = 75, 71% male, 83% Hispanic/Latino) and their families were randomly assigned to either behavioral treatment (homework-focused parent training and a daily report card; BPT + DRC) or a waitlist control group...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive control impairments may place remitted depressed (RMD) patients at increased risk for developing future depressive symptomatology by disrupting emotion regulation processes. Research has shown that directly targeting cognitive control has beneficial effects on high trait ruminators and clinically depressed patients. The current study tested whether internet-delivered cognitive control training (CCT) can be used as an intervention to increase resilience to depression in RMD patients...

This response to the commentary by Gaynor (in press) (a) underscores the importance of defining terms (predictor, moderator, and mediator variables) used in psychological treatment outcome research, (b) notes the improvements in mediation analyses using treatment of youth anxiety as the illustration, and (c) encourages continued advancement in the methodology for mediation analyses. We agree with Gaynor (in press) both on the importance of temporal precedence and on the use of cautious language with regard to interpreting mediational analyses...

OBJECTIVE: Comment on the issue of temporal precedence and the implications for interpreting the results of the mediation analyses in the Child/Adolescent Multimodal Treatment Study. METHOD: Review of Kendall et al. (2016). RESULTS: Kendall et al. reported that residualized (baseline to posttreatment) change in coping efficacy, but not anxious self-talk, mediated residualized (baseline to follow-up) change in anxiety symptoms in cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), sertraline (SRT), and CBT + SRT compared to placebo...

OBJECTIVE: There is a dearth of empirical studies aimed at examining the impact of differential cultural adaptation of evidence-based clinical and prevention interventions. This prevention study consisted of a randomized controlled trial aimed at comparing the impact of 2 differentially culturally adapted versions of the evidence-based parenting intervention known as Parent Management Training, the Oregon Model (PMTOR). METHOD: The sample consisted of 103 Latina/o immigrant families (190 individual parents)...

OBJECTIVE: Concerns about the maturing science of cultural adaptation of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) have encompassed deficient standardization of theoretical frameworks and inefficiencies adapting multiple EBIs for multiple ethnic groups. Others argue that original EBIs applied with fidelity address universal processes applicable across ethnicity without adaptation. Study goals were to (1) establish a unifying data-driven framework for culturally adapting mental health EBIs for ethnic minorities, and (2) provide information for the fidelity debate by examining the extent to which fidelity to core EBI components is achieved in the cultural adaptation process...

OBJECTIVE: We tested the relation of perceived criticism (PC) from a parent or spouse/romantic partner to outcome of psychotherapy for panic disorder (PD). METHOD: Participants were 130 patients with PD (79% with agoraphobia) who received 24 twice-weekly sessions of panic-focused psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, or applied relaxation therapy. Patients were predominantly White (75%), female (64%), and non-Hispanic (85%). At baseline, Week 5 of treatment, termination, and at 6- and 12-month follow-up, patients rated PC from the relative with whom they lived...

OBJECTIVE: Depression among pregnant women is a prevalent public health problem associated with poor maternal and offspring development. Behavioral activation (BA) is a scalable intervention aligned with pregnant women's preference for nonpharmacological depression care. This is the first test of the effectiveness of BA for depression among pregnant women, which aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of BA as compared with treatment as usual (TAU). METHOD: Pregnant women (mean age = 28...

OBJECTIVE: The current study examined the frequency with which randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of behavioral and psychological interventions for anxiety and depression include data pertaining to participant sexual orientation and nonbinary gender identities. METHOD: Using systematic review methodology, the databases PubMed and PsycINFO were searched to identify RCTs published in 2004, 2009, and 2014. Random selections of 400 articles per database per year (2,400 articles in total) were considered for inclusion in the review...

OBJECTIVE: Government initiatives undertaken to improve the earning potential of disadvantaged unmarried parents assume that job training and additional schooling will strengthen these families, yet alternative models predict that these same interventions could overwhelm couples' limited resources, undermining family stability. METHOD: We use 3 waves of dyadic data and propensity score analysis to test these competing perspectives by examining the effects of job-related and school-related interventions on 3-year marriage rates...
