The Effect of Emotional Resilience Training on Fear of Birth and Depression in Primiparous Pregnant Women

Start date: April 16, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Although birth has a great place in a woman's life, factors such as the woman's education level, personal experiences, social support status, whether the pregnancy is planned or not, the family's attitude towards pregnancy, and socioeconomic status increase the burden of pregnancy and can create a stressful situation for the woman. While the pain that may be experienced during birth, thoughts about the baby's health and postpartum baby care further increase this fear, primiparous women who will give birth for the first time experience many emotions that they cannot define and cannot predict the situations they will encounter during birth. The most important situation that will cause pain during birth is fear. So much so that fear of birth may cause women to avoid pregnancy and increase optional abortions.In particular, fear of birth may increase cesarean delivery rates and also lead to negative maternal outcomes such as poor mental health after birth. Fear experienced during the antenatal period can lead to difficult births, mother-baby attachment problems, and depression. While fear of birth causes depression and anxiety disorders in the postpartum period, it is stated that depression experienced during pregnancy may increase the fear of birth, or fear of birth may be a hidden symptom of depression. It is noted that emotional regulation skills and resilience in pregnant women can be effective strategies in minimizing and managing fear, anxiety, stress, and anxiety. Emotional resilience is defined as the style of coping with stress, the ability to repair oneself, the ability to recover from adverse events quickly, and the state of adapting to a new environment. In particular, individuals with high emotional resilience can protect their physical and mental health and increase their life satisfaction by reducing the negative consequences they experience. With the emotional resilience training given during pregnancy, pregnant women's stress, fear, and anxiety will be reduced, and they will be able to cope better with the difficulties they experience. This research will be conducted to examine the effect of emotional resilience training given to primiparous pregnant women on fear of childbirth and depression.

"Youth Aware of Mental Health" in Galicia

Start date: January 15, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this interventional study is to assess the effectiveness of the universal suicide prevention program "Youth Aware of Mental Health" in 3rd-year secondary education students in Galicia. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Is the YAM program effective in reducing severe suicidal ideation at 12 months from baseline within the experimental group and compared to the control group? - Is the YAM program effective in preventing the incidence of new suicidal attempts, 12 months from baseline in the experimental group compared to the control group? All participants in this study will be asked to: Complete a survey at baseline and after 12 months, consisting of measures for suicidal ideation and behavior, depressive symptoms, seeking help behaviors, bullying, problematic internet use, and emotional distress. Only those allocated to the experimental group will be asked to: Undergo the YAM program, an evidence-based intervention structured into five one-hour class group sessions (45-50 min.), focused on problem-solving by peers. The program consists of interactive presentations, dilemma discussions, role-playing, and reflection, all moderated by a trained YAM instructor. Twelve months after the intervention, all participants will undergo a re-evaluation using the same protocol. The researchers will compare differences in pre- and post-measures within the experimental and control groups, as well as between both groups, to assess the impact of the YAM intervention on outcomes such as suicidal ideation and attempts. At the end of the study, those who were allocated to the control group are going to be offered the YAM intervention program.

Online Mental Health Interventions for Children and Adolescents (OMHICA)

Start date: January 26, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Mental health has become an increasing concern, especially among children and adolescents in schools. However, not all individuals in mental suboptimal states require pharmacological treatment. With the development of internet technology, internet-based psychological therapy methods are considered to have tremendous potential and are being given significant attention. Simultaneously, due to their convenience, these approaches are widely applied. Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CCBT) can achieve its therapeutic effect by improving activation patterns of the brain's internal networks to promote self-regulation. Music Therapy (MT) can make peoples gradually relax via relaxing and soothing music, and regulate individual psychological emotions through the influence of music on individuals' cerebral cortex, hypothalamus and limbic system, further improve the mood of daily tension and anxiety. Health Education works to provide parents with knowledge and information about mental health, aiming to help them better understand and support their own and their children's mental health, thereby improving parent-child relationships. The study was designed as a randomized clinical trial with four groups, the CCBT group, the MT group, the Health Education group and the control group in children and adolescent .The CCBT group, the MT group, and the Health Education group all completed their interventions through online self-help therapy. The control group did not receive any intervention. Data collection was conducted by trained, certified and qualified personnel. The mental health intervention is a crucial component of the "School-based Evaluation Advancing Response for Child Health (SEARCH)" cohort study, focusing on observing changes in the population undergoing the intervention within the cohort study.

Effects of Nerve Blocks on Pain After Caesarean Section and Postpartum Depression

Start date: November 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

At the end of your cesarean section surgery, which is started by applying medication to the spinal cavity from your waist, pain medication will be applied between the relevant muscle and its covering from your lower abdomen or back with the help of ultrasonography and a special block needle. Then, a patient-controlled pain device with a serum containing painkillers will be connected to your vascular access, and its use and purpose will be explained to you. You will be asked about your pain condition and the severity score of your pain, if any, at certain hourly intervals. At the end of 24 hours, a pain device will be removed, your satisfaction will be questioned and your complaints, if any, will be recorded. Immediately before surgery and 4-6 days after your surgery. An evaluation survey consisting of 10 questions will be asked to you within a 5-minute period during the weeks, at a time when you are free, and your answers will be recorded.

Acute Psychological Sleep Stabilisation for Patients Hospitalised With Depression

Start date: April 15, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Disturbed sleep occurs in almost all patients in psychiatric inpatient care, and although it is well known that comorbid sleep disorders in depression often persist after treatment of depression and also increase the risk of new depressive episodes, the availability of effective, evidence-based treatments for sleep disorders in hospitalised patients is very limited. The overall goal of the current project is to translate, adapt and evaluate an acute psychological sleep treatment based on cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) for patients hospitalized with depression and comorbid sleep problems in the specialized psychiatric inpatient care in the Stockholm Region. The main hypothesis for the study is that acute psychological sleep stabilization (APS) reduces self-reported sleep complains compared to care as usual reinforced with sleep hygiene advice, and secondary hypotheses are that APS also leads to reduced depressive symptoms and earlier discharge. The project includes a pilot study, which will be followed by a randomized, controlled trial of APS compared to care as usual with structured sleep hygiene (minimal active control) and treatment effect is evaluated every three days during the hospital stay and 1,2,4 and 12 weeks after randomization. APS will be performed by existing staff in the department with the support of a psychologist.
