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...

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...
