Authors:
RUGGERI Mirella, et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Psychiatry, 178, March 2001, pp.268-275.
Publisher:
Royal College of Psychiatrists

Explores the role of subjective and objective Quality Of Life dimensions and their cross-sectional and longitudinal predictors. The relationship between QQL, as measured by the Lancashire Quality Of Life Profile (LQL), and demographic variables, diagnosis, psychopathology, disability, functioning, affect balance, self-esteem, service use and service satisfaction was investigated at two points in time, using factor analysis and multiple regression techniques. Concludes that subjective and objective data are distinct types of information. Objective measures may be more suitable in detecting treatment effects. Subjective information is necessary to complete the QQL picture and to enhance the interpretation of objective data.

Worry content reported by older adults with and without generalized anxiety disorder

Authors:
DIEFENBACH G.J., STANLEY M.A., BECK J.G.
Journal article citation:
Aging and Mental Health, 5(3), August 2001, pp.269-274.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

This study investigated worry content in older adults with and without generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). This is an important topic of research, where findings may promote improved recognition and treatment of this disorder in late-life, as well as provide information about the nature of worry across the lifespan. Worry content was compared for 44 older adults diagnosed with GAD and 44 normal control (NC) volunteers matched for age, gender, and ethnicity. Results indicated that older adults with GAD reported a wider variety of worry topics than did NC participants. However, there were no differences in worry content patterns between older adults with and without GAD. These results suggest that pathological worry in later life is not uniquely defined by content, and implications of these findings for assessment and treatment of GAD in older adults are discussed. Worry content reported by older adults also was compared with previously published younger adult worry content data. Age differences in worry content were found in both the clinical and non-clinical groups in patterns that were generally consistent with common age-related developmental changes. Directions for future research of worry across the lifespan are proposed.

Co-occurring psychosocial distress and substance abuse in community clients: initial validity and reliability of self-report measures

Authors:
O'HARE Thomas, et al
Journal article citation:
Community Mental Health Journal, 37(6), December 2001, pp.481-487.
Publisher:
Springer

This American study examines the self-reports of community support clients using a paper and pencil questionnaire that included the South Shore Problem Inventory-revised (a brief multi-dimensional psychosocial distress scale), a one-item index of self-rated substance abuse (SRSA), a quantity-frequency index for alcohol consumption (QFI), and a one-item index measuring the frequency of marijuana use. Results support the factor structure and internal consistency of the SSPI-r, and show significant correlations among the substance use indices. Implications for including brief mental health and substance abuse measures are discussed within the context of routine assessment and practice evaluation.

Dual diagnosis: HIV and mental illness: a population-based study

Authors:
STOSKOPF Carleen H., KIM Yang K., GLOVER Saundra H.
Journal article citation:
Community Mental Health Journal, 37(6), December 2001, pp.469-479.
Publisher:
Springer

This is a American cross-sectional, population-based study using hospital discharge abstract data to determine the relative risk associated with having a dual diagnosis of mental illness and HIV/AIDS. The analysis addressed issues of gender, race, and age, as well as type of mental illness. Persons with a mental illness are 1.44 times more likely to have HIV/AIDS. Women are at increased risk of being dually diagnosed. There are no risk differences by race. Those with specific diagnosis of substance abuse or a depressive disorder are more likely to have a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS.
