OBJECTIVE Research has supported a link between insecure attachment and eating disorders (EDs) in adolescents; however, mechanisms accounting for this association remain unclear. Growing evidence suggests impaired mentalizing as a potential mechanism. Yet, little is known about the relationship between mentalizing and ED symptoms or how it relates to the link between attachment and EDs in adolescents. This study examined mentalizing deficits in adolescents with ED symptoms relative to psychiatri...

A persistent and significant barrier to the diagnosis and treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD) in adolescents is clinician reluctance to label an adolescent with a stigmatized, intractable, treatment-resistant diagnosis. The goal of the current study was to evaluate this claim by examining the 18-month longitudinal course of borderline pathology in adolescents after discharge from inpatient treatment. 556 adolescent consecutive admissions (64.6% female; ages 12–17, M = 15.29, SD = ...

Children with a constellation of dark traits may be particularly challenging to parents because these traits are associated with an increased chance for parents to lose a supportive attitude in dealing with the child's difficultness and to turn instead toward punishing strategies. The present study looks with more detail into the construct of parental punishment and examines differences and similarities in the effects of physical (harsh) versus nonphysical (corrective) discipline on the developm...

AbstractNarrative coherence refers to the overall completeness of the narrative that helps the individual to draw meaning from past events. Research has predominantly focused on developmental trajectories of narrative coherence among typically developing individuals and less research sheds light on narrative coherence in adolescents facing serious psychological difficulties. This study is the first to apply Baerger and McAdams’s well-validated coding scheme of narrative coherence to adolescents ...

Discrepancies in parent-adolescent reports of parenting practices may reveal important information about parent-adolescent relationship quality. Youth attachment security has been identified as a factor that may explain discrepancies between parents and adolescents in reporting on parenting. However, previous research has not examined this question among clinical samples, and has generally utilized non-optimal analytic strategies in modeling discrepancies. The current study aimed to extend previ...
