Innovative Brain Imaging Identify Brain Abnormalities In Borderline Personality Disorder
Innovative Brain Imaging Brings Into View Centers Linking Poor Impulse Control with Negative Emotion. Borderline personality disorder is a devastating mental illness that affects between 1 to 2 percent of Americans, causing untold disruption of patients' lives and relationships. Nevertheless, its underlying biology is not very well understood. Hallmarks of the illness include impulsivity, emotional instability, interpersonal difficulties, and a preponderance of negative emotions such as anger—all of which may encourage or be associated with substance abuse, self-destructive behaviors and even suicide.

Physiologic measurements suggest biologic component to feelings of empathic connection
Empathy is well known to be an important component of the patient-therapist relationship, and a new study has revealed the biology behind how patients and therapists “connect” during a clinical encounter. In the February Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) report the first physiologic evidence of shared emotions underlying the experience of empathy during live psychotherapy sessions. The researchers found that, during moments of high positive emotion, both patients and therapists had similar physiologic responses and that greater levels of similarity were related to higher ratings of therapist empathy by patients.

Canadian Cardiac Randomized Evaluation of Antidepressant and Psychotherapy Efficacity (CREATE) Study Delivers Surprising Results
Nearly twenty percent of cardiac patients suffer from major depression, which may have a significant negative impact on the outcome of the cardiac disease. A Canada-wide study directed by Dr. François Lespérance, professor of psychiatry at the Université de Montréal and head of the Department of Psychiatry at the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is the first to assess the value of two treatments available to these patients: SSRI antidepressants and interpersonal psychotherapy. The results, to be published tomorrow in the Journal of the American Medical Association, demonstrate the effectiveness of antidepressants, while showing that psychotherapy has little benefit for depressed heart patients.

Schema Therapy fosters full recovery in borderline personality disorder
For the first time, a major outcome study has shown that a high percentage of patients with Borderline Personality Disorder can achieve full recovery across the complete range of symptoms. The controlled study, appearing in a recent issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry published by the American Medical Association, shows that a new approach -- Schema Therapy -- is more than twice as effective as a widely practiced psychodynamic approach, Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP). Schema Therapy was also found to be less costly and to have a much lower drop out rate. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has until recent years been considered untreatable, with little scientific justification for longer-term therapy.

Hypnotherapy improves quality of life for people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) who took part in hypnotherapy sessions reported reduced symptoms and improved quality of life, according to research published in the June issue of Journal of Clinical Nursing. Dr Graeme D Smith from University of Edinburgh studied 75 patients with IBS - which affects up to one in seven adults - before and after they took part in four to five treatment sessions over three months. He discovered that before the sessions, women were most concerned with quality of life issues such as diet and energy and that men had the highest levels of anxiety and depression and worried about their physical role.
