- Non-suicidal self-injurious behavior in conduct disorders and schizotypal disorderby J V Khutoryanskaya on November 9, 2023
CONCLUSION: The study showed that the difference between the compared nosological groups according to the methods and motives of self-harming actions is determined not so much by intergroup differences as by sex and age patterns within each of the compared groups. This allows us to talk about the proximity of the mechanisms of self-harm in various mental disorders, and the phenomenon of NSIB itself should be considered rather as a nosologically nonspecific psychopathological phenomenon.

- Dysfunctional personality beliefs and psychopathology in patients with central serous chorioretinopathyby F Çam on November 2, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: This first study investigating the relationship between CSC and dysfunctional personality beliefs indicates that CSC patients have higher levels of dysfunctional beliefs related to avoidant and obsessive-compulsive PD than healthy volunteers. These findings present a new aspect of the personality profile of CSC patients and point to a target for intervention, i.e., dysfunctional beliefs, through a cognitive-psychiatric approach.
