The new nomenclature in the DSM-5 is Unspecified Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorder (UDICCD), however, there are little to no data available on the new nomenclature. The current article is aimed at examining the practical usage of the UDICCD diagnosis by mental health practitioners in the juvenile justice system (JJS). Among the findings, three were most ...

Abstract Two approaches to word learning were investigated in 1214 6th- to 12th-grade students. Definitions were provided, followed either by two sentences that were semantically correct exemplars, called semantic reinforcement learning, or by one correct sentence and a contrasting incorrect sentence (i.e., example followed by a structurally aligned non-example), called semantic discrimination learning. Type of learning was blocked, and examples and non-examples were explained. Effects of affix ...

Objective: There is an urgent need to equip community-based careworkers with the skills to address the mental health needs of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) as an essential response to shortages in human resources for mental health in Sub-Saharan Africa.

OBJECTIVE: Retrospective and prospective memory deficits are associated with lower quality of life (QoL); however, there are no validated measures that comprehensively and directly assess the impact of memory problems on QoL. The Survey of Memory-Related Quality of Life (SMRQoL) was developed as a 30-item questionnaire to measure memory-related QoL. METHOD: Both HIV+ (n = 195) and HIV- (n = 146) participants completed the SMRQoL, a neurocognitive research battery, and validated self-report quest...

OBJECTIVE: Lifespan outcomes of simultaneous versus sequential myelomeningocele repair and shunt placement or effects of repeated shunt revisions on specific domains of IQ or fine motor dexterity are largely unknown. The current study addressed these gaps in a large cohort of children and adults with spina bifida myelomeningocele (SBM). METHODS: Participants between 7 and 44 years of age with SBM and shunted hydrocephalus were recruited from international clinics at two time points. Each partici...
