Cross-Cultural Adaptation of the KONTAKT Social Skills Group Training Program for Children and Adolescents with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder: A feasibility Study

Nora Choque Olsson/ Agneta Karlsson/ Sofia Andersson/ Annie Boström/ Mari Ljungström/ Sven Bölte

Social skills group training is an intervention method that has demonstrated moderate evidence of improvement among children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). KONTAKT is a manualized social skills group training program that was developed in Germany and that has demonstrated preliminary evidence of positive effect. In this study, we describe its adaptation to Scandinavian settings. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical feasibility of the Swedish version of KONTAKT(..)

Anxiety Disorders among Adolescents referred to General Psychiatry for Multiple Causes: Clinical Presentation, Prevalence, and Comorbidity

Susanne Olofsdotter/ Sofia Vadlin/ Karin Sonnby/ Tomas Furmark/ Kent W. Nilsson

Reports of anxiety disorder characteristics among youth in clinical settings typically include descriptions of patients who have been specifically referred for anxiety treatment. At odds with a large body of evidence which demonstrates these disorders to be most common among young people, prevalence studies in samples referred to general psychiatry for multiple causes are scarce and report highly discrepant estimates. For this study and regardless of their presenting symptoms, 125 adolescents (5(..)

A Danish study of One-session Treatment for Specific Phobias in Children and Adolescents

Mette Djernes Nielsen/ Christina Linddahl Andreasen/ Mikael Thastum

One-session treatment (OST) is a short-term massed exposure therapy for the treatment of specific phobias in children and adults. Systematic reviews have demonstrated the effectiveness of the treatment for children and adolescents across countries and age groups. A single-group open trial design was used to examine the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of OST for youths with specific phobias in a Danish context. At the Anxiety Clinic of Aarhus University, 10 youths between the ages of 7 and 1(..)

Are Autistic Traits in Youth Meaningful? A Replication study in Non-referred Siblings of Youth with and without Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Joseph Biederman/ Maura Fitzgerald/ Stephen V. Faraone/ Ronna Fried/ K. Yvonne Woodworth/ Alexandra Saunders/ Kristina Conroy/ Gagan Joshi

We previously described the high prevalence and burden of significant autistic traits (ATs) in youth with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These traits are associated with significantly greater impairment in psychopathological, interpersonal, educational, and neuropsychological functioning. Because the sample consisted of referred ADHD youth, uncertainty remained regarding whether these findings are generalizable to non-referred populations of youths with and without ADHD. The ai(..)

Injury Patterns among Individuals Diagnosed with Infantile Autism during Childhood: A Case-Control Study

Svend Erik Mouridsen/ Bente Rich/ Torben Isager

To date, injury risk among people with infantile autism (IA) has been a relatively poorly researched issue. The purpose of our study was to compare the prevalence and types of injuries in a clinical sample of 118 patients diagnosed with IA during childhood with those of 336 age- and sex-matched controls from the general population. All participants were screened through the nationwide Danish National Hospital Register. The average amount of time that the participants were observed was 30.3 years(..)

Ginger E. Nicol/ Rachel P Kolko/ Monica Mills/ Thrudur Gunnarsdottir/ Michael D. Yingling/ Julia A. Schweiger/ Eric J. Lenze/ John W. Newcomer/ Denise Wilfley

Background: Youth who are being treated with antipsychotic medications are at increased risk for the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Behavioral weight loss treatments show promise for reducing obesity and diabetes risk among adults treated with these drugs, but such treatments have not previously been studied in youth. Objective: We describe a rationale for behavioral weight loss intervention for high-weight youth being treated with antipsychotic medications. We report behavioral, an(..)
