Child Abuse Management Units: How can Mental Health Services be Further Improved?

Child abuse is a broad term that includes physical, sexual, and emotional (e.g., psychological, verbal) abuse. There are huge variations with regard to the level of severity and the consequences of abuse. Because child abuse is such a sensitive topic, it is a challenging task to conduct studies concerning this subject.The aim of the study was to identify areas that could be improved to offer better health care services to patients. Therefore, routine assessments, the characteristics of the

Does School Functioning Matter in Patients of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services?

General population studies have demonstrated that good school functioning protects children and adolescents against mental health problems. However, no such studies of clinical populations have been conducted. Therefore, we explored the association between school functioning and mental health in patients referred to child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). We also examined whether good school functioning and general social competence at referral predicted better mental health

Can the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) help characterize the types of psychopathologic conditions driving child psychiatry referrals?

Introduction There is a clear recognition of the limited resources available in child and adolescent psychiatry across the world. For example, in the United States, that is most likely one of the countries with the largest number of child psychiatrists in the world, there are only 9.75 trained child psychiatrists per 100,000 children (1). This is clearly an inadequate number of psychiatrists trained to attend to the large number of youth with mental health needs in general and the many affected

The presence of a child with disabilities in a family presents more challenging conditions than the presence of a non-disabled child. One of the difficulties is of financial nature. One of the parents often has to give up their job to care for the child, which shrinks the household income. At the same time, the family has higher expenses resulting from, e.g. costs of treatment. All this increases the risk of falling into poverty. The goal of this paper is to analyse the financial situation of

Parental rearing practices such as over-involvement are associated with childhood anxiety; however, little is known about the contribution of parental perceptions to child anxiety.

For example, narrow definitions require sexual penetration which result in lower prevalence rates whereas broader definitions include non-penetrative acts of abuse. Other factors influencing definitions include restrictions on the

Development and initial validation of the Odense Child Trauma Screening: a story stem screening tool for preschool and young schoolchildren

Introduction Early detection of children who have been exposed to trauma and who are at risk of post-trauma symptomatology is crucial to allocate appropriate support and treatment and prevent long-term psychopathological outcomes (1, 2). However, assessment of young children exposed to trauma can be difficult, if the child is not able to fully talk about the trauma or verbalize his or her trauma symptoms (3). Also, a core symptom of posttraumatic stress is avoidance of reminders of the trauma

Quantitative measures are therefore essential when investigating the patterns of familiality of these traits.

DNA probe technology in parentage testing

Paternity tests involve laboratory procedures on blood samples obtained from the alleged father, mother, and child to determine if the alleged father is the true father. Conclusions are based on the principle that the child inherits half of the characteristics (markers) in his/her blood from each true parent. DNA probe analysis has emerged from the research laboratory and is currently being utilized by laboratories engaged in parentage testing to improve their efficiency in discriminating

The Education of Gifted Children in the Early Years: A First Survey of Views, Teaching Practices, Resourcing and Administration Issues

This paper reports the findings of a survey of views on the early education of gifted children in New Zealand and identifies where challenges for professional support, resourcing, and educational administration might lie. The 125 respondents represented a range of roles connected in some way with education and most (71%) also had first-hand experience of caring for or teaching a gifted child. Various views on how giftedness should be defined were expressed, indicating that no agreement on a

The IgM autoanti-I was detected at 4°C (titer 256) and also reacted at 30°C. This case highlights the potential hazard of transfusing units of blood immediately upon removal from the blood refrigerator, especially into neonates and children of small stature.

Standards of ultrasound imaging of the adrenal glands

histopathological entities but cortical adenomas without hormonal hyperfunction are the most common. Each abdominal ultrasound scan of a child or adult should include the assessment of the suprarenal areas. If a previously non-reported, incidental solid focal lesion exceeding 1 cm (incidentaloma) is detected in the suprarenal area, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging should be conducted to confi rm its presence and for differentiation and the tumor functional status should be determined

Assessment within ILP: A journey of collaborative inquiry

• Parents to share in the richness of their child’s learning journey • A holistic profile of the students, rather than one which purely focussed on academic achievements. We believe that the outcomes of this assessment inquiry will have a significant impact on all teaching and learning in our ILEs.
