    Serial Multiple Mediation of the Relationship between Positive Coping Style and Post-Traumatic Growth among Chinese College Students in the Aftermath of COVID-19

    Qi Li, Jinsheng Hu*, Peng Wan

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.11, pp. 1173-1186, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.030343


    Given the ongoing character of COVID-19, higher-education students encountered multifaceted pressures brought about by the pandemic and had to overcome many difficulties during this period. Accordingly, it is imperative to identify the factors that may have protective effects on the social functioning and mental status of college students in the aftermath of COVID-19. This cross-sectional study sought to ascertain the internal mechanism of positive coping (PC) styles affecting post-traumatic growth (PTG) and considered the mediating roles of cognitive reappraisal (CR), psychological resilience (PR), and deliberate rumination (DR), which are essential for understanding how and to what extent these factors shaped… More >

The present study aimed to examine the relationships between religiosity and spirituality with Post Traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms among a civilian population frequently exposed to missile and rocket threats. One hundred and twenty-four (N = 124) civilian participants living within 10 km from shelling and missile attacks fired towards them, completed demographic, religiosity, spirituality, and PTSD questionnaires. The study findings demonstrate that religiosity is associated… More >

    Consultations de suivi à long terme d’adultes guéris d’un cancer survenu dans l’enfance : vécus traumatiques et travail de narration. Récits dans l’après-coup de la maladie

    M. Laget, L. Fasse, B. Fresneau, E. Ricadat, S. Rivollet

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 267-272, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0190

    Abstract As part of the medical follow-up program for adult survivors of childhood cancer at the Institut Gustave Roussy (Villejuif, France), a psychological consultation is offered. This article is based on 198 interviews with patients between the ages of 18 and 67 who were diagnosed between the ages of 0 and 24. These meetings give voice to the subjectivity of cancer and recovery, revealing the traces of this experience afterwards. The issues at stake in the narrative activity initiated in the context of this consultation, and which may continue beyond, are approached from a metapsychological perspective.

    Reciprocal Association between Psychological Distress and PTSD and Their Relationship with Pre-Displacement Stressors among Displaced Women

    Erhabor S. Idemudia1, Babatola D. Olawa1,*, Gail E. Wyatt2, Norweeta G. Milburn2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.5, pp. 699-710, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.026852

    Abstract It is established in the psychological literature that pre-displacement stressors, PTSD symptoms, and psychological distress are associated among internally displaced persons. However, existing studies have not demonstrated the mechanism underlying these associations. This study compared two explanatory models; one with PTSD symptoms severity explaining the indirect association between pre-displacement stressors and psychological distress, and the other with psychological distress explaining the indirect relationship between pre-displacement stressors and PTSD symptoms severity. In a cross-sectional design, 631 women (Mean age = 31.18 ± 8.59) were conveniently and purposely selected from the displaced women harboured in two camps in Borno State, Nigeria, due… More >

    Diagnosis of Middle Ear Diseases Based on Convolutional Neural Network

    Yunyoung Nam1, Seong Jun Choi2, Jihwan Shin1, Jinseok Lee3,*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.2, pp. 1521-1532, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.034192

    Abstract An otoscope is traditionally used to examine the eardrum and ear canal. A diagnosis of otitis media (OM) relies on the experience of clinicians. If an examiner lacks experience, the examination may be difficult and time-consuming. This paper presents an ear disease classification method using middle ear images based on a convolutional neural network (CNN). Especially the segmentation and classification networks are used to classify an otoscopic image into six classes: normal, acute otitis media (AOM), otitis media with effusion (OME), chronic otitis media (COM), congenital cholesteatoma (CC) and traumatic perforations (TMPs). The Mask R-CNN is utilized for the segmentation… More >

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 173-191, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.018800

    Abstract In recent decades, Haiti has been subject to man-made and natural disasters that have left its citizens vulnerable to a range of shocks. With a weak state unable to protect its populace, Haitians are exposed to some of the highest levels of poverty and violence in the Western Hemisphere. In recent years, Haitians have experienced two crises that this study analyzes: the instability and political violence of “peyi lòk” as well as the global pandemic of COVID-19. This community-based assessment explores the impact of these two crises on the mental health and psychological well-being of 38 Haitian university students in… More >

    Abstract Concomitant acute epidural hematoma (EDH) and subdural hematoma (SDH) is a rare finding, and its bilateral onset has not yet been reported in literature. We present the first report of a patient affected by post-traumatic concomitant EDH and SDH, with the contralateral, delayed onset of another, associated with meningioma previously treated with gamma knife. A 60-year-old female patient with a history of simple focal seizures with motor symptoms and well-controlled by drugs since childhood, arterial hypertension, and incidental diagnosis of multiple meningiomas was referred to our department after falling down the stairs. Initially, the patient was prescribed gamma knife treatment… More >

    Salubrinal alleviates traumatic spinal cord injury through suppression of the eIF2α/ATF4 pathway in mouse model


    BIOCELL, Vol.46, No.6, pp. 1527-1535, 2022, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2022.018269

    Abstract Spinal cord injury (SCI) remains an intractable clinical challenge of neurosurgery, it can be divided into two stages: uncontrollable primary injury induced by mechanical damage and controllable secondary injury regulated by continuous cell death. The apoptosis was the one of most important events in secondary injury, previous studies revealed that excessive endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress breaks down the homeostasis and triggers apoptosis in the spinal cord. To deter or alleviate the secondary jury, we screen one of fat-soluble compounds, salubrinal, which was an inhibitor of eIF2α dephosphorylation can repair SCI by inhibiting ER stress in mice after SCI.

    Abstract Metastatic spread of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to the spleen is uncommon, only occurring in approximately 1% of cases. Atraumatic splenic rupture due to HCC metastasis is extremely rare and affects patient prognosis, clinical management, and mortality. We report a case of a 65-year-old man with a history of chronic hepatitis B infection who presented with left-sided abdominal pain and fatigue. Clinical examination showed acute anemia with elevated levels of serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and protein induced by vitamin K absence (PIVKA-II). On ultrasound and computed tomography imaging, hemoperitoneum caused by a ruptured splenic tumor was revealed. In addition to multiple hepatic… More >
