The effects of psychological treatments of depression in children and adolescents on response, reliable change, and deterioration: A meta-analysis

Pim Cuijpers
Meta-analysis of psychotherapies usually report effects sizes. For patients and clinicians, however, it is important to know what the chances are of getting better after a treatment. The SMD is not very informative in this respect and cannot be see as an indicator of clinical relevance, because it is still a statistical concept. For patients and clinicians it is important to simply now the proportions of patients who get better when they receive treatment and...

An attentional limbo: saccades become momentarily non-selective in between saliency-driven and relevance-driven selection

A meta-analytic database of randomised trials on psychotherapies for depression

Pim Cuijpers & Eirini Karyotaki
Background. The number of trials on psychotherapies for adult depression is very large and is quickly growing. Because of this large body of knowledge, it is important that the results of these studies are summarized and integrated in meta-analytic studies. More than a decade ago we developed a meta-analytic database of these trials, which was updated yearly through systematic literature searches. Recently, we developed a new version of this meta-analytic database, built on the systems...

Unguided self-help stress management interventions for college students: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Yagmur Amanvermez, Ruiying Zhao, Eirini Karyotaki, Leonore de Wit & Pim Cuijpers
Psychological problems are prevalent among college students (Auerbach et al., 2016, 2018; Mortier et al., 2018). The onset of the common psychological disorders peaks during college years (Kessler et al., 2007). At this developmental stage, college students encounter several stressors including academic demands, changes in relationships and lifestyle, and financial problems (Acharya, Jin, & Collins, 2018). As a result, a considerable number of college students experience elevated levels of stress. However access to mental health...

Study 6: Analysing Reliability of Questionnaire Items

Siska Fitrianie, Willem-Paul Brinkman, Merijn Bruijnes, Kim Baraka, Rianne van den Berghe, Ulysses Bernardet, Tibor Bosse, Frances Brazier, Jacob Browne, Franziska Burger, Mathieu Chollet, Leigh Clark, Benjamin Cowan, Salam Daher, Ding Ding, Frank Foerster, Emer Gilmartin, Catholijn Jonker, Mirjam de Haas, Mojgan Hashemian, Evelien Heyselaar, Kangsoo Kim, Marion Koelle, Barbara Kuhnert, Felix Lindner … & Philipp Wicke
This research is the first study into the validation of the questionnaire instrument for evaluating human interaction with an artificial social agent. It involves crowd workers on an online crowdsourcing platform. They will be asked to use the questionnaire instrument to rate an interaction between an agent and a human user, which is displayed in a 30 second video clip. The result of this study will be analysed and used to examine the reliability of...

Networking the Yield Curve: Implications for Monetary Policy

Tatjana Dahlhaus, Julia Schaumburg & Tatevik Sekhposyan
"How do different monetary policies affect the yield curve and interact with each other? To answer this question, we introduce a novel network model for interest rate surprises of different maturities. We establish model properties and identification through simulation studies. Using the model, we implement different monetary policy scenarios: modelling simultaneous interventions in different segments of the bond market while varying the strength of forward guidance. We find that the overall effect on the yield...

Situational Strength in Economic Games: Do Strong Situations Restrict Behavioral Variance in Cooperation? An Examination Using the Cooperation Databank

Ranran Li, Daniel Balliet, Isabel Thielmann & Reinout de Vries
Initially formulated by Mischel (1977), the situational strength hypothesis has had an important influence on the person-situation debate. The situational strength hypothesis posits that the way personality translates into behavior depends on the strength of the situation. Specifically, strong situations – compared to weak situations – restrict behavioral variance and thus prevent personality from being expressed in behavior. Lately, however, researchers have started to question the restricted behavioral variance assumption, noting that behavioral variance does...

Use of Text, Audio and Video Recognition Algorithms in Recognition of Depression and Anxiety: A Scoping Review Protocol

Marketa Ciharova, Khadicha Amarti, Ward van Breda, Heleen Riper, Christiaan Vis, Pim Cuijpers, Eirini Karyotaki & Mieke Schulte
Common mental health disorders, more specifically mood and anxiety disorders, are highly prevalent and lead to decrease in general health, quality of life as well as social functioning, contributing substantially to the global burden of disease. Objective, real-time assessment of their active and passive signs, presented as expressions of sentiment in text, specific vocal features or facial expressions, may contribute to earlier recognition, diagnosis of and treatment for these disorders. Techniques allowing for such assessment...

Psychological treatment of depression in patients with somatic disorders

Clara Miguel, Pim Cuijpers, Marketa Ciharova, Eirini Karyotaki & Brenda Penninx
It is estimated that depression affects about 6% of the worldwide adult population every year (Bromet et al., 2011). In populations with somatic disorders the odds of suffering depression are significantly higher, as indicated by epidemiological and meta-analytical evidence (Moussavi et al., 2007; Chang-Quan et al., 2010; Read et al., 2017). Moreover, in individuals with somatic conditions, depression has been associated with poorer functional health outcomes and an increased risk of mortality (Baune, Adrian &...

Homeschooling in Dutch families during the COVID-19 lockdown: Parental experiences, risk and resilience.

Marina Iliás, Anne Tharner, Marleen de Moor, Carlo Schuengel & Mirjam Oosterman
Unprecedented measures have been taken worldwide in an attempt to control the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns and school closures upended normal family life. In many countries, parents became primarily responsible for their children’s education on top of their work obligations or stress of (impending) loss of work or income. Concerns have been raised about the consequences for children’s wellbeing and learning. When parents are unable to provide the necessary resources, learning activities, or support of such...

COVID-19 and Mental Health: An umbrella review of systematic reviews with or without meta-analyses

Anke Witteveen, Susanne Young, Pim Cuijpers, Jose Mateos, Corrado Barbui, Bertolini Federico, Maria Cabello, Naomi Downes, Daniele Franzoi, Michael Gasior, Brandon Gray, David Gunnell, Ann John, Christina Palantza, Marianna Purgato, Judith van der Waerden, Mark van Ommeren, Siyuan Wang & Marit Sijbrandij
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to world-wide human suffering, which may include negative effects on mental health (United Nations, 2020). A great number of research projects have assessed the mental health impacts of COVID-19, which have been integrated into systematic reviews (SRs) with or without meta-analyses (MAs). Although some authors have reported direct and indirect negative effects of COVID-19 on specific mental health problems (e.g., depression or post-traumatic stress symptoms) and elevated generic psychological distress...

Lack of lipid accumulation in two species of Chalcidoid wasps with secondarily evolved phytophagy

Jacintha Ellers
Stable co-evolutionary relationships between species can result in the loss of autonomous synthesis of essential nutrients when these can be obtained from the ecological partner. Parasitoid insects obtain the majority of their nutrients from their host, and contain multiple, independently-evolved lineages that do not increase their adult lipid reserves despite feeding on a surplus of dietary sugars, although some parasitoid species in these lineages were found to have reactivated adult lipogenesis. Several clades within the...

Item-validity analysis of the SED-S in a multicenter sample of adults with an intellectual disability

Hauke Hermann, Gloria Kempelmann, Brian Barrett, Sandra Zaal, Jolnada Vonk, Filip Morisse, Paula Sterkenburg & Tanja Sappok
Recognition of the level of emotional development (ED) is essential in adults with an intellectual disability to align treatment and support accordingly. The empirical-based Scale of Emotional Development – Short (SED-S) assesses the level of ED in 5 reference age groups from 0 - 12 years in eight different domains. The scale is assessed by an expert in developmental psychology in a semistructured interview with close caregivers. It consists of eight domains: ‘Relating to his/her...
