: The Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) is widely used to assess adolescent depressive symptom severity. Psychometric investigations, including factor-analytic studies, with adolescents support the reliability and validity of the BDI-II. However, a major limitation of this research is that samples have been predominantly Caucasian/White. This is critical because depressive illness is highly prevalent across race and ethnicity, and the extent to which reliability and findings generalize to no...

: Despite the developmental roots of the relation between attachment-based reflective function (RF) and borderline pathology, there is a lack of empirical studies examining this link in youth. We examined this link taking into account potential relations between RF and internalizing and externalizing pathology. A total of 421 clinical adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 completed the Child Attachment Interview (CAI; Shmueli-Goetz, Target, Fonagy, & Datta, 2008), which was coded using the C...

: The identification of theoretically and empirically supported correlates of suicide ideation is important to improve treatment approaches to suicide. This study sought to examine the association between interpersonal trust (theoretically conceptualized as a distal risk marker) and suicide ideation in adolescence. Specifically, it was hypothesized that interpersonal trust would be negatively associated with suicide ideation via perceived burdensomeness and thwarted belongingness (conceptualized...

Background Interpersonal trust is an important target for the conceptualization, identification, and treatment of psychiatric disorders marked by interpersonal difficulties. A core feature of adolescent externalising disorders is interpersonal impairment. However, research investigating trust is scarce. A relatively novel approach for studying trust in psychopathology is through examination of social decision making using behavioural economic games. Objective To employ a modified trust game in o...

Background Extant literature indicates that Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) may be reliably assessed in adolescence. Sharp and colleagues’ (2011) suggested that mentalization could be an important early target for intervention in BPD adolescents and showed that hypermentalizing may represent an important marker to distinguish emerging BPD from adolescent turmoil. We aimed at testing if both dimensionally-assessed and categorically-diagnosed BPD was selectively associated with hypermentaliz...

: The Borderline Personality Features Scale for Children (BPFS-C) was recently shortened using item response theory to an 11-item version that is optimal for use in epidemiological studies and repeated assessment over time. Only 1 study has examined invariance of the BPFS-C-11 items across gender and no study has done so over time. The present study employed a longitudinal design to address this gap by evaluating measurement invariance across gender and over time during the transition into adult...

Abstract This study aimed to examine the concurrent relation between six dimensions of emotion dysregulation, proposed by Gratz and Roemer (2004), and suicide ideation and attempt in a large sample of psychiatric adolescent inpatients. A sample of 547 adolescent inpatients completed measures on dimensions of emotion dysregulation, psychiatric diagnoses, and suicidal ideation and attempt. Binary logistic regression analyses revealed that limited access to emotion regulation strategies, difficulti...
