The purpose of the current study was to explore family members' perceptions of the causes of first-episode psychosis (FEP). A qualitative study with 68 family members of patients with FEP was performed. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and submitted for thematic analysis. The attributions for FEP were: use of psychoactive substances as a trigger; influence of genetic and personal factors; exposure to stressful life events; and lack of previous health care and knowledge about psychotic symptoms...

The left-behind experience refers to the experience of children who were taken care of by caregivers in their hometowns for ≥6 months before reaching age 18, as one or both parents left the rural hometown for better paying jobs in bigger cities. The current study was conducted with college students to test the effect of the left-behind experience on self-efficacy. The General Self-Efficacy Scale and a questionnaire designed by the authors were adopted for a survey of 200 Chinese college students in their final year of university...

The current study used secondary data analysis to examine mediating and moderating effects of depression literacy on the relationship between depression stigma and attitude toward use of mental health care services in Korean American parents. Of 141 survey respondents, 36 (25.2%) were fathers and 105 (74.8%) were mothers. In mediation analysis, the indirect effects of personal stigma (B = -0.14, p < 0.05) and total stigma (B = -0.09, p < 0.05) were statistically significant. The moderating eff ect of depression literacy on the relationship between personal stigma and attitudes was also significant (B = -0...

The opioid epidemic is a national public health concern. Nurses are the largest portion of the health care workforce and play a critical role in education, recognition, and referral to treatment. The purpose of the current article is to offer recommendations for nurses caring for individuals using opioid drugs. Searches for abuse, nursing, opioid, opiate, prescription, identify, and treatment were performed using Ovid Nursing, PubMed, and CINAHL databases. Articles were judged based on title, keywords, and abstract to determine inclusion...

Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) refers to depression that fails to remit after at least two to four medication and psychotherapy treatment strategies. TRD carries significant personal burden and risk for suicide and poses substantial burden to society. Less than 30% of individuals diagnosed with major depressive disorder achieve complete remission of symptoms. Using the evidence-based predictors of TRD in the initial assessment of patients, clinicians can arrive at a treatment plan to improve outcomes...

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects functioning of the family, decreasing interactions and loyalty and increasing conflict between adolescents with ADHD and their families. Irritable mood and difficulties with emotional dysregulation are common in children with ADHD. The objective of the current study was to assess levels of irritability in adolescents with ADHD using self- and parent-report scales, and investigate the relationship between irritability levels and parental attitudes. A total of 47 adolescents with ADHD and 39 adolescents with typical development participated in the current study...

The purpose of the current study was to make a case for instituting parent-child relational problem (PCRP) screening as a standard of care in pediatric inpatient psychiatric units due to increasing evidence that PCRP may be an underreported problem that affects more adolescents than currently realized. Adolescents who are admitted to the hospital for mood exacerbation, suicidal ideation, self-harm behavior, or behavioral escalation may improve and be discharged. However, these adolescents often are readmitted, which may be associated with parent-child relational factors...

Some situations require psychiatric staff nurses to respond to service users' negativity or aggression. As a result, psychiatric staff nurses may experience anger. The current study examined how anger levels of psychiatric staff nurses triggered by anger-generating situations by service users affected nurses' confidence and attitudes. A questionnaire survey was administered among 386 psychiatric staff nurses. The questionnaire surveyed anger levels in anger-generating situations, aggressiveness, nurses' attitudes toward aggression, and self-efficacy of intervening in aggressive situations...

Using a grounded theory approach, the current descriptive qualitative design was conducted with sophomore students to understand the meaning participants gave their freshman experiences with depression. Twelve participants were recruited using scripted class announcements across campus. After informed consent, interviews began with the question: What was the experience of your freshman year in college? All interviews were completed with the primary investigator and transcribed verbatim. Interviews were analyzed using constant comparative methodology...

Sleep terrors, one of the non-rapid eye movement parasomnias, are interesting nighttime phenomena that can be distressing for parents. For most children, this behavior is temporary and does not cause significant problems. However, some psychiatric conditions may have a higher prevalence of parasomnias, including sleep terrors. Although sleep terrors may be a benign and common event in children, a basic mental health examination should include a sleep-related screening to possibly identify underlying issues...

As a survival strategy, trauma arouses intensive neurobiological mechanisms that, if unchecked, contribute to severe chronic stress responses and disability. Although posttraumatic stress disorder can be considered a distinctive psychiatric disorder, it likely underlies many psychiatric disorders, including depression and mood, anxiety, substance use, and personality disorders. Psychiatric-mental health nurses need to carefully assess for trauma symptomatology in all patients and diverse populations, such as children; adolescents; immigrants; active and inactive military personnel; women; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer individuals...

In today's health care-focused climate, in which encouraging breastfeeding is part of national and international health care initiatives, clinicians in any field should have resources available for breastfeeding mothers. The current article provides information for psychiatric clinicians on how breastfeeding may affect women with psychiatric conditions, the type of lactation counselor likely to be best prepared to collaborate with psychiatric clinicians, and resources available regarding maternal psychiatric medications safe for breastfeeding infants...

Addressing tense and escalating situations with noncoercive measures is an important element of inpatient psychiatric treatment. Although restraint rates are frequently monitored, the use of pro re nata (PRN) intramuscular (IM) injections to address agitation is also an important indicator. In 2015, at the current study site, a significant increase was noted in PRN IM medication use despite unit leadership's efforts to build a culture of trauma-informed care (TIC). The purpose of the current quality improvement project was to educate staff on methods to incorporate TIC into daily practice and the use of brief solution-focused therapy techniques in escalating situations...
