BACKGROUND: Adherence to medication is a key factor for successful treatment of children with ADHD. However, most children do not adhere to their pharmacotherapy regimen, and have no contact with their physician during the first month of pharmacotherapy.

METHOD: The study sample included 39 children with ADHD (27 boys), aged 9...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of alcohol related harm (ARH) in Israel has traditionally been low. The lack of familiarity with ARH may derive from the fact that in the past there was limited clinical exposure to these harms. However, ARH is becoming more common in Israel but it is unclear whether the medical and nursing workforce's knowledge is adequate to manage these problems. Our main objective was to assess knowledge regarding ARH among medical and nursing staff (MNS) in an Israeli university affiliated general hospital...

BACKGROUND: This article examines the attachment characteristics of the offspring as a function of the survival situation of their parents (Holocaust survivors). According to Bowlby's theory (1), proximity to a significant "other" increases the capability to regulate difficult emotions. Therefore, Holocaust survivors who were accompanied by a significant "other" should be less traumatized than a lone survivor who had to be completely self-reliant during the war. Therefore, we hypothesized that the parent's survival situation (alone or accompanied by a significant other) affected the way they bonded with their children...

BACKGROUND: Many studies have described perfectionism and low self-esteem as traits associated with eating disorders (ED). More recently, research has shown the role played by worry, rumination, control and metacognitive beliefs. This paper investigates the role played by cognitive and metacognitive variables in the psychopathological mechanism of eating disorders, assuming that not only perfectionism and low selfesteem but also metacognitive beliefs and processes can discriminate between controls and EDs...

The purpose of the present study is to present the empirical basis for the capability of the theory of psychodynamic self-psychology to predict in crosssectional and prospective longitudinal studies, both the development of and the remission from eating disorders. In addition, we present the effectiveness of psychodynamic self-psychological treatment in a randomized control study over two other techniques. Theoretical constructs of the theory and technique suggestions will be weaved into the empirical data.
