The reliability and validity of the constructed questionnaire is also tested. Different interviewers applied the BIRDEF to randomly selected 32 participants, in order to test the interrater reliability of the questionnaire. The interrater reliability coeficient was found 0. It is suggested to have good prognosis and response to treatment. In some of the patients, the diagnosis is switched to schizophrenia or mood disorders in the follow-up.

This study aimed to determine sociodemographic and clinical features of patients diagnosed with acute and transient psychotic disorder, as well as changes in the diagnosis in a 5 year the follow-up. METHODS: The sample was constituted by patients who diagnosed with acute and transient psychotic disorder during their hospitalization in Medical records of these patients were examined restrospectively in , including past 5 years.

Mean age was The majority were single The rate of patients who have been rehospitalized was Most common diagnoses in the follow-up were atypical psychosis Therefore, the cases who diagnosed with acute and transient psychotic disorder, especially if they carry risk factors, should be evaluated in detail in terms of prodromal period of schizophrenia.

Furthermore, a close follow-up would be beneficial. Schizophrenia is an illness which is chronic that leads to disability. Particularly obtaining sufficient treatment response in patients with first episode schizophrenia is important in determining the course of the illness. Predicting treatment response with antipsychotic drugs would allow to obtain efficient clinical response by reducing unnecessary drug use and enhance the adherence to treatment. In this context, considering the importance of topic, this review is written out relevant to predictive factors of antipsychotic treatment response in patients with first episode schizophrenia.

Electronic search was conducted for this review in Pubmed database. Although there are varied links between drug response and both biological, including pharmacological, neuroimaging and electroencephalography EEG findings, and clinical, including duration of untreated psychosis, antipsychotic agents which are used in treatment, soft neurological signs, kind and severity of psychotic symptoms and neurophysiologic indicator of frontal lobe function NoGo Anteriorization, NGA , variables in studies which are conducted in this field, there is a need for further studies as a conclusion.

Despite all the progress made in the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual LGBT area of study, especially where media representations are considered, violence, discrimination, and marginalization toward those individuals continues.

Mental health studies report that LGBT individuals, as opposed to the general population, have higher rates of psychological and physiological problems. It is assumed that this situation occurs due to the adverse effects of exposure to the LGBT identity related with negative life experiences of these individuals on psychological well-being. In the current paper negative life experiences, discrimination and the marginalizing experiences of LGBT individuals are discussed in relation to the concept of bullying.

Bullying behaviors that are experienced by LGBT individuals due to their LGBT identities may have negative effects on their current and later life well-being status via shaping their self-perceptions and expectations about others. In this regard, this paper examined the effects of exposure to bullying and social support on the psychological well-being of LGBT children and young adults.

Firstly, the relationship between bullying experiences and LGBT identity was discussed. Secondly, the effects of the LGBT identity related to the exposure to bullying experiences on psychological well-being were examined. Thirdly, the role of social support in this process was considered. Lastly, bullying prevention strategies for LGBT people was mentioned. Vaginismus is a type of sexual dysfunction in which caused by spasm of the vaginal musculature prevents penetrative intercourse.

The presence of recurrent or persistent involuntary spasm of the musculature of the outer third of the vagina that interferes with sexual intercourse. In many cases frequently anxiety, quality of the maritial relationship, sexual functioning of partner and lack of knowledge about elemantary anatomy and sexuality are some of the suggested factors with a probable role in the etiology of vaginismus, however the findings are inconsistent.

In the recent studies, the conditioned fear response to a certain stimulant was suggested as one of the responsible mechanism of the formation way of this vaginal response.

According to these results, psychotherapeutical and pharmacological treatment modalities that use for reducing anxiety and fear are the treatment options that prefered nowadays. In Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, bilateral stimulation of eye movement is provided by the therapist. Dual attention stimulation sets are continued until anxiety disappear or greatly reduce. In this case report, we discussed a patient who presented with therapy-resistant vaginismus secondary to childhood sexual trauma and was treated successfully with the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy.

Over embriogenesis, a deletion of an approximately 3 Mb frame from 22q Alongside different clinical features and phenotypes, these patients should be followed up on psychiatric symptoms and disorders such as speech delay, specific learning difficulties SLD , mental retardation, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD , autism, anxiety, depression and even schizophrenia and other pcychotic disorders.

This case, diagnosed with partial DGS and followed by immunology, cardiology, endocrinology and neurology departments, admitted to our clinic on account of his difficulties in learning and inattention.

There is still no clear causative relation between these, so there is a need to clarify this with further studies. As seen in our case, the patients with DGS and having some inattention or learning difficulties are needed to be examined by the child psychiatrists. Hide Abstracts.
