„Psychiatric diagnostics and treatment“

This interdisciplinary work group examines psychological research questions on the prevention, early detection/ recognition and treatment of mental disorders. We apply a broad spectrum of state-of the art assessment and clinical methods to examine family-genetic and environmental risk factors and the course patterns of mental disorders to improve prevention and early-targeted treatment.

Aims of our studies refer to the following research levels:

a) Early recognition of mental disorders and development of innovative diagnostic instruments (e.g. Early Recognition of Bipolar Disorders, Puppet Interview on Illness Perceptions, Fear of Progression Questionnaire (FoP-Q), Composite International Diagnostic Interview for Women (CIDI-V))

b) Prospective-longitudinal studies on risk factors and course patterns of mental disorders (e.g. Maternal Anxiety in Relation to Infant Development-Study, Follow-up of patients who consulted the Early Recognition Center in Dresden, Online survey on the psychological impact of the corona virus pandemic in individuals with psychiatric disorders)

c) Development and evaluation of innovative prevention and treatment approaches (e.g. Evaluation of a manualized group program for siblings of children with diseases or disabilities)

2. Fear of Progression Questionnaire

Fear of Progression (FoP), the fear of further disease progression, is one of the most common psychological strains of chronically ill patients and can also be found in healthy relatives of cancer patients (e.g. parents). Thus, children with cancer and their parents are at risk of developing distinct fears that may persist after medical treatment. Within several studies in pediatric oncology psychometric properties of the Fear of Progression Questionnaire (FoP-Q) were examined in children with cancer and in their parents.
The FoP-Q is a short questionnaire with adequate psychometric properties (reliability, validitiy). Associations of FoP were found with the child’s current medical condition, time since diagnosis, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, capacity to cope with disease-related fears and quality of life.
The FoP-Q offers a feasible and sensitive questionnaire to assess disease-related fears for children with cancer and their parents. For clinicians, evaluation of individual results can provide insight into specific problem areas for parents of children with cancer. The questionnaire is well suited for use in psycho-social care of families within the field of paediatric oncology.

3. Puppet interview on illness perceptions of pediatric-oncological patients (Deutsche Krebshilfe)

Illness perceptions are beliefs and expectations regarding one’s own or others‘ illness and have been used to explain individual behaviour and coping strategies as well as impairments that are experienced by the affected persons and that affect the individual course of the disease. In this research project that is conducted at the university hospitals and the parents’ associations in Dresden and Leipzig, illness perceptions of children and adolescents with cancer in acute treatment and follow-up care are prospectively investigated. Based on the internationally recognised Illness Perception Questionnaire (IPQ-R) for adults, a puppet interview has been developed. This puppet interview is used to examine children aged 4-12 years. Psychometric properties of the puppet interview will be tested. Older children and adolescents will be given the IPQ-R as a questionnaire. Preliminary results show that the children’s and adolescents’ view on the illness adds important information to the parents’ view. This additional information is exceedingly important for individual medical treatment.

2. Psychological impact and effect of the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic in individuals with psychiatric disorders – an online survey

The COVID-19 pandemic is a public health emergency of international concern and poses a challenge to psychological resilience. It is placing great pressure on the society and the economy, at a local and global scale. At an individual level, early research suggests differing levels of psychological distress, depending on variables such as sex and proximity to the outbreak. It is unclear whether those with an existing psychiatric illness experience greater or lesser degree of psychological distress than healthy comparators, and if greater, whether the psychological symptoms represent a new presentation or an exacerbation of their existing condition. 

In light of the significant and ongoing challenge presented by COVID-19, a longitudinal multi-center online survey is conducted in different countries (Austria, Germany, UK, France, and Canada) to develop evidence-driven strategies to reduce the adverse psychological impacts and psychiatric symptoms arising during the pandemic. The main aim of this study is to measure current affective symptoms and psychological distress in individuals with mental disorders during the COVID-19 pandemic using an online questionnaire. This study will also identify individual beliefs, coping strategies and resilience patterns utilized to manage the psychological effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hypothesize that the loss of daily structure, reduced social contacts, loneliness, reduced face-to-face psychiatric care, and other possible lifestyle changes due to the quarantine and social distancing measures, will have a detrimental effect on psychological symptoms (depression, anxiety, somatization etc.) in individuals with a psychiatric disorder compared to healthy controls. We posit that in contrast, resilience and positive cognition processes will be positively correlated with psychological wellbeing.

The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the Technische Universität Dresden (PI: Prof. Dr. Dr. Michael Bauer, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Julia Martini) is a study center of this survey that is led by Prof. Eva Reininghaus at the Medical University Graz.

3. Maternal anxiety and depression in relation to infant development (MARI Study)

Family-genetic studies suggest that anxiety disorders run in families and that mechanisms of familial transmission might act as early as during pregnancy. Recent evidence has shown that peripartum anxiety and depressive disorders are associated with adverse consequences for mother and child. Thus, it is important to examine risk factors, correlates and course patterns of anxiety and depressive disorders during pregnancy and after delivery.

The MARI Study is a prospective-longitudinal study program on N =306 pregnant women who were enrolled during early pregnancy and prospectively investigated in seven waves of assessment until 16 months postpartum. N =274 mothers could be retained until T7 (retention rate: 89.5 %). Clinical and psychosocial measures were repeatedly used including standardized diagnostic interviews (CIDI-V) of the mother and standardized observation paradigms of mothers and infants.
Findings from this study contribute to improved knowledge about the natural course of anxiety and depressive disorders during transition to parenthood and associated outcomes that are assumed to be early indicators of later psychopathology in the infants. Results provide new insights into mechanisms of familial transmission and clues for targeted prevention and early intervention.
Until now, 20 original research articles in peer-review journals and 5 book contributions have been published and more than fifty theses were based on data of the MARI Study. The publication on risk factors and course patterns of anxiety and depressive disorders during peripartum period was highly cited in Web of Science from 2016 until 2019. Our Masters student I. Huttarsch was honoured with the Lohrmann Medaille for extraordinary achievements and our PhD student J. Petzoldt successfully applied for a three-year fellowship granted by the Foundation of German Business (Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft, sdw) in collaboration with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Furthermore, several travel awards were designated to staff members of MARI study by the Friends and Sponsors (Gesellschaft der Freunde und Förderer) and the Graduate Academy (Graduiertenakademie) of the Technische Universität Dresden as well as by the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst).

C) Development and evaluation of innovative prevention and treatment approaches

Evaluation of a manualized group program for siblings of children with diseases or disabilities

This study evaluates a manualized group program for siblings of children with life-threatening/ life-limiting diseases or disabilities. The program aims to activate resources and to reduce emotional and behavioral problems using cognitive-behavioral methods and experience-based interventions. In this multi-center study, 13 GeschwisterTREFFs were conducted by 11 study sites in Germany. Prior to and after the intervention 97 siblings aged 7 to 14 years and their parents were examined with standardized questionnaires. At baseline, the siblings of children with diseases or disabilities showed significant more emotional and behavioral problems compared to the respective norm samples. After the intervention, the siblings reported declined problem behavior scores that were mostly in the range of the particular norm values. Furthermore, the children indicated a significant improvement of self-esteem, self-efficacy, school competences and relations to their siblings. However, parents reported more problem behavior and less health-related quality of life of their children at both assessments. The present multi-center study showed the interventions’ feasibility in different settings and confirmed expected improvements of target variables during the intervention period. Randomized-controlled trails are warranted to verify our results.
