Questions related to Clinical Health Psychology
I'm looking for a questionnaires to use in a small study to assess Health Seeking Behaviour in a particular community.
Can anyone help?
I am conducting research for a Health Psychology MSc. My chosen topic is to explore racial healthcare experience disparities, and healthcare inequalities, in the maternal/perinatal period. I am trying to find an appropriate health psychological theories that can be applied to these to help underpin my research and interview schedule.
Kindly provide list of free publishing journals indexed in SCOPUS. I need it submit my research paper.
I just came across a really interesting point of view in a clinical manual by a leading author in clinical treatment in Spain, Miguel Ángel Vallejo. He claims, based on a study by Rude and Rehm (1991)*, that psychotherapy is most effective when it boosts already-existing capacities and skills, rather than when it focuses on ameliorating deficits. That seems to run counter to much of what I have seen before in psychotherapy; does this idea match your clinical experience, or do you have any additional bibliography that might support this claim Thanks a lot!
*The citation to this article is given as "Rude, S. S., & Rehm, L. P. (1990). Cognitive and behavioral predictors of response to treatments for depression. Clinical Psychology Review, 11, 493–514"; however, all I can find online is this other article, with a different name, although (apparently) similar content: https://psycnet.apa.org/record/1992-06180-001
Since this (Syrian IDPs) is a relatively new topic, I first want to check how much literature has been published on Syrian IDPs (I am not talking about newspapers or blog type publications here, but more academic resources).
Thank you for your help

I am interested to know the caregivers needs to provide high quality care for patients with cancer. I am not looking for the psychological needs, but the knowledge and skills that we should equip the caregivers with, and the most common demands for the patients with cancer.
If you are aware about any instrument to measure these needs, this also will be highly appreciated.
A measure that can provide information about a support figure's perceived 'treatment inclusion,' for lack of a better term. So, what is the perceived level of involvement in medical treatment for a patient's support figure? Thanks for your help in advance!

I’m about to write my Masters’ Thesis at Department of Psychology at University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I’m focusing on psychologists’ opportunities to act, when in professional conversations with terminally ill persons. I have made some interviews with Danish psychologists, and would like to do an interview with a Dutch and an American psychologist as well. My intention with doing these interviews is to compare the psychologists’ opportunities to act within the different laws in Denmark, USA and the Netherlands.
How can I get into contact with a Dutch and an American (not from Oregon, Washington, Montana or Vermont) psychologist, who works with terminally ill persons, to make an interview with them?
I really hope for your help, so that the knowledge and experiences from USA and the Netherlands can be a part of my research.
Kind regards Mai Heinecke.
What tools relied upon by Beck in the diagnosis of depression other than the list well known BDI II?
Health-based self-efficacy OR a medical adherence scale would be particularly useful since this is for a sample of chronically ill children aged 10-17. Illness type varies so it has to apply to all conditions. Thank you!
We are looking at predicting adherence to medical and behavioral health care recommendations among individuals with metabolic syndrome. I'm curious if anyone might be able to provide personal insight into specific indicators (behavioral or otherwise) that have been effective/reliable in quantifying the construct of treatment adherence?
How do I compute it?
The closest I got was this paper: Pizzagalli, D. A., Oakes, T. R., Fox, A. S., Chung, M. K., Larson, C. L., Abercrombie, H. C., ... & Davidson, R. J. (2003). Functional but not structural subgenual prefrontal cortex abnormalities in melancholia. Molecular psychiatry, 9(4), 393-405.
The authors state that its the sum of: guilty feelings (item #5), agitation (item #11), loss of pleasure/interest (item #12), late insomnia (item #16), and loss of interest in sex (item #21). So, how should I score item 16? Should I rate 3 only if the answer is late insonia (3B), and 0 for the rest of the answers?
I´ve been searching for papers on the Melancholia subscore of BDI-II but cannot find the original study of its proposal.
Thank you in advance!
The project I am involved in is about indicating the number of teaching strategies used by academic teachers providing seminars for students taking psychology course.
Students will be informed at the beginning of semester about the variety of available teaching/stimulation methods and then they will rank their preferences. After finishing seminars they will rank a)how much the strategies were used and b) How effective these strategies were found to be in learning process and developing skills ?
Maybe you have conducted/ or could suggest any research or article concerning the issue of stimulating psychology course students to activity and/or the efficiency of specific methods in teaching.
We have collected data for a 3 x 3 within subjects experiment, with several dependent variables. Some of our 3x3 interactions are significant, and on an interaction plot we think it is easy to identify which data points are ‘causing’ the significant interaction? Is there something a bit more ‘scientific’ we can add? It just seems a bit incomplete as is.
I'm interested to find out if there are different standards between countries (and states and provinces) for psychologists to provide services for injured workers. Do psychologists have to have additional training or higher qualifications above the basic professional registration requirements in your area?
All the surveys I find are designed for administrators, or they're trying to measure integration of Bx health and primary care at an organizational level (how integrated services are, etc.). I want to evaluate the providers perspectives of factors that make up integrated/collaborative health care models (shared records, etc). Any recommendations for a survey/questionnaire out there already? Thanks!
Self-regulatory failure is a core feature of many interpersonal and mental health problems. Neuroscience research suggests that successful self-regulation is dependent on top-down control from the prefrontal cortex over subcortical regions involved in reward and emotion.
I am working towards my dissertation, and am interested in contacting healthcare, hospitality, or manufacturing organizations. I am primarily interested in collecting survey data at two different time points regarding attitudes towards safety in the workplace. Does anyone have any experience in contacting such organizations?
There are a lot of attempts to define psychotherapy. But a short version would be of advantage for the field. In our paper "Der Psychotherapeut als Scientist-Practitioner - Vom Bachelor und Master über das 1. und 2. Staatsexamen zur Approbation und sozialrechtlichen Zulassung) we tried to define it either as "psychological treatment of any disorder / disease" or alternatively as "treatment of mental disorders". Both ways contain advantages and problems. The first one for example has the problem of overlapping with some fields of medicine, especially psychosomatic medicine. And the second would include the whole discipline of psychiatry.
What do you think is best? Is it possible to combine our two definitions? Do you have alternative or better (short) definitions?
I am conducting a study on smokers and on their withdrawal symptoms during a quitting program and I am assessing withdrawal symptoms through the Smoker Complaint Scale. I need to find a validation article or factor analysis of the scale.
Does anyone have information about this?
Usually psychotherapists prefer to develop a treatment "alone", disfavoring the intervention of another psychological therapist at the same time. But in complex cases with different problematics, the intervention of other experts may be useful, like in medicine (cardiac problems with cardiologists & self-immune with immunologists). For example, is a concurrent psychological treatment (different psychotherapists) advisable in cases of comorbidity of HIV, drug abuse, cognitive deterioration, personality disorder, psychosis, family conflicts, etc.?
The Bio-psycho social theory has been proven to give us a comprehensive understanding of human behavior yet health practitioners and policy makers seem to still prefer medically biased conclusions. Why is this so and is there any research addressing such issues?
