A multicenter, randomized, controlled study of Training Executive, Attention, and Motor Skills (TEAMS) in Danish preschool children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Rationale and description of the intervention and study protocol

Helle Annette Vibholm/ Jesper Pedersen/ Anne Holm/ Søren Krue

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a highly prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder that is often detected during the preschool years. Neuroimaging data indicate that children with ADHD have brains that are characterized by growth and functional anomalies. Data suggest that the diminution of ADHD symptoms is correlated with improved neural functioning and growth. On the basis of these findings, interventions that target neural growth, which indicates neural development, can possibl(..)

Non-Suicidal Self-Injury and Indirect Self-Harm Among Danish High School Students

Bo Møhl/ Peter la Cour/ Annika Skandsen

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and indirect self-harm are prevalent among adolescents, but it is rare to see them described as related topics. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there is a correlation between the frequencies of NSSI and indirect self-harm (e.g., eating problems, alcohol and drug use) and how this may be influenced by gender. Questionnaires about NSSI (e.g., cutting, burning, scratching, hitting oneself) and indirect self-harm were distributed to high school st(..)

Latent Classes of Symptoms related to Clinically Depressed Mood in Adolescents

Eva Henje Blom/ Mats Forsman/ Tony T. Yang/ Eva Serlachius/ Jan-Olov Larsson

The diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD), according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is based only on adult symptomatology of depression and not adapted for age and gender. This may contribute to the low diagnostic specificity and validity of adolescent MDD. In this study, we investigated whether latent classes based on symptoms associated with depressed mood could be identified in a sample of adolescents seeking psychiatric care, regardless of traditionally (..)

Psychological Difficulties among Children and Adolescents with Ethnic Danish, Immigrant, and Refugee Backgrounds

Ingrid Leth/ Janni Niclasen/ Else Ryding/ Yasmine Baroud/ Barbara H. Esbjørn

This study investigated and compared the prevalence of psychological difficulties among Danish, immigrant, and refugee children. We enrolled 332 children between the ages of 8 and 18 years (148 Danish children, 81 immigrant children, and 67 children with refugee backgrounds), all from low-income areas of residence. The Health Behaviour in School-aged Children Symptoms Checklist, the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire, and the Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale were applied. We(..)

Secondhand Smoke Exposure and Severity of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Preschoolers: A Pilot Investigation

Mini Tandon/ Christina N. Lessov-Schlaggar/ Rebecca Tillman/ Melbourne F. Hovell/ Joan Luby

Less is known about the effects of secondhand smoke (SHS) on mental health as compared with other medical disorders. The aims of this study were to examine the following: 1) the association of SHS exposure with childhood attention-deficit/hyperactivity (ADHD) and disruptive disorders; and 2) the association of maternal recall of a child’s SHS exposure and that child’s exposure as measured by bioassay. Sixty children had their saliva collected and assayed for cotinine when they were 4 years old a(..)

Immigrant Preadolescents and Risk of Emotional Distress

Daniele E. Alves/ Heather L. Corliss/ Espen Roysamb/ Henrik D. Zachrisson/ Brit Oppedal/ Kristin Gustavson

The question of whether immigrants have more emotional problems than their non-immigrant peers has yielded mixed results. In Norway, there has been a tendency toward immigrant youth reporting higher rates of emotional problems. In addition to studying levels of emotional problems across those with immigrant backgrounds, there is a need to investigate whether the phenomenology of these problems is comparable across ethnic groups. We used latent class analysis (LCA) to identify subgroups of preado(..)
