- Association between impulsivity and orthorexia nervosa / healthy orthorexia: any mediating effect of depression, anxiety, and stress?by Emmanuelle Awad on December 4, 2021
CONCLUSION: Our study suggests that depression, anxiety and stress play a mediating role between impulsivity and orthorexia nervosa/healthy orthorexia. Our findings provide a ground for future investigations of impulsive behaviors, psychopathology, and orthorexia in different populations.
- Exploring the factor structure of the mini-ICF-APP in an inpatient clinical sample, according to the psychiatric diagnosisby Stephan T Egger on December 4, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: The factor structure of the mini-ICF-APP appears to modify according to the main diagnosis. However, a one-factor model demonstrates better fit regardless of diagnostic category. Consequently, we consider the mini-ICF-APP to be a trans-diagnostic measurement instrument for the assessment and grading of psychosocial functioning. The use of the mini-ICF-APP sum score seems to best reflect the degree of impairment in an individual, even taking into account that affected domains may...
- From alcohol to aggression: Examining the structure and nomological network of dysregulated behaviors in a trauma-exposed community sampleby Konrad Bresin on December 4, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: These results have implications for several areas of psychopathology and intervention research.

The respective weights of these factors vary as a function of age group. Finally, some, such as health locus of control, family dynamics or extraversion, can be modified as an adjunct to pharmacological treatment.
