    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.8, pp. 961-969, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.027319

    Abstract The most common comorbid psychiatric disorders in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) are depression, anxiety and behavioral disorders. Patients with comorbid psychopathology are less capable of psychically adjusting to the new life situation resulting from T1DM, which may negatively affect glycemic control and adherence related to the treatment. We aimed to investigate the association between mental health and type 1 diabetes including illness representation. 115 children and adolescents with T1DM were recruited through the outpatient clinic in Debrecen, Hungary. Measures: PRISM-D, Child Depression Inventory (CDI), Cantril Ladder and Self-Rated Health, Glycosylaeted haemoglobin (HbA1C) were measured. Children having depressive… More > Graphic Abstract

    Abstract Every year in France, 1,850 children under the age of 15 and 450 adolescents aged 15 to 17 develop cancer and 20% of these paediatric cancers remain incurable today.

    Procedure: A single interview was submitted to an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), designed to understand the system of meanings attached to a subjective and intimate phenomenon such as bereavement.

    F. Ait-Kaci, S. Vanderosieren, C. Lervat

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 289-293, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0205

    Abstract Even upset by cancer, sexuality can remain a source of satisfaction for young patients. However, in the general mind, sexuality and cancer appear as two taboos, two contradictory phenomena which cannot coexist together. To overcome this paradox, the web-series named No Taboo offers itself as a mediation tool specific to the 17 to 25 age group, which tackles with acuity and humor, the theme of love and sexual life during cancer. Its objectives are to encourage health professionals to approach this subject in a fun and didactic way; to fight the received ideas on cancer, treatment, and sexuality; to free… More >
