    Abstract Objective: This study was conducted to explore the relationships among sedentary behavior (SB), electronic product addiction (EPA), and depression (D) in adolescents during the COVID-19 epidemic. Methods: A total of 604 adolescents (including 309 girls and 295 boys aged 12–18) were selected from Qufu City, Shandong Province, China for three rounds of investigation. The model was constructed using AMOS 23.0 software, and cross-lagged analysis was conducted. Results: SB at T1 can significantly positively predict SB and EPA at T2 (p < 0.05). EPA at T1 can significantly positively predict SB and D at T2 (p < 0.05). More >

    Brigitta Munkácsi1,*, Enikő Felszeghy1, Flóra Kenyhercz2, Beáta Erika Nagy1

    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) More > Graphic Abstract

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 55-64, 2023, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0233

    Abstract Chaque année en France, 1 850 enfants de moins de 15 ans et 450 adolescents de 15 à 17 ans déclarent un cancer, et 20 % de ces cancers pédiatriques restent incurables. Les jeunes peuvent alors être amenés à être accompagnés par une équipe de soins palliatifs pédiatriques, en collaboration étroite avec les services d’oncologie pédiatrique. Ces équipes ont entre autres pour mission de favoriser la poursuite de la scolarité du jeune, en milieu ordinaire lorsque cela est possible médicalement et souhaité par ce dernier. Or, très peu d’études se sont intéressées aux spécificités de More >
