Measuring suicidal ideation: validity and reliability of the turkish version of the beck scale for suicide ideation among patients who presented at a psychiatry clinic with suicidal ideations Objective: Although several self-report tools measuring suicidal ideation are used in Turkey, the validity and reliability of the Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation (BSSI), an important tool administered clinically, has not yet been examined. We hope that establishing the validity and reliability of the BSSI can improve the detection of suicidal ideation. Methods: The sample for this study consisted of 120 individuals who participated voluntarily. . . . One hundred of the 120 participants were administered related relevant instruments, the Beck Depression Inventory [BDI], Beck Anxiety Inventory [BAI], Beck Hopelessness Scale [BHS], and Suicidal Ideation Scale [SIS], to determine concurrent validity. Separately, two clinicians interviewed twenty different participants to assess inter-rater reliability. To assess internal consistency, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were computed. In addition, a principal component analysis with a Varimax rotation was performed to examine the test’s factor structure. Results: Cronbach’s alpha value was 0.84 and every item was positively correlated to the total scores on the BSSI. Inter-rater correlation was very strong and significant (r=0.94, Daha fazlası Daha az

Peripheral edema is most commonly associated with multiple medical etiologies and drugs including nonsteroidal anti-inflamatory, antihypertensives, steroids, and immunosuppresive agents. The atypical antipsychotic olanzapine is rarely related with peripheral edema. However relationship of olanzapine and edema remains as a hypothesis. In this case report a peripheral edema developing shortly after initiation of treatment in a patient with schizophrenia is reported and theoretical explanations of this phenomenon are discussed.

Severe depression with suicidal ideation associated with the use of the valsartan, an angiotensin receptor antagonist, is reported. The patient, who was unresponsive to antidepressant medication with two different groups, dramatically recovered following discontinuation of valsartan. Possible mechanisms and related issues of mood changes which caused by angiotensin II receptor antagonists, especially with valsartan are discussed. Clinicians should be aware that valsartan may cause mood changes.

Postpartum period is a vulnerable period for development of psychiatric disorders. Despite large number of studies focusing on postpartum depression and psychosis, there are few other studies reporting that aggravation or even alleviation of anxiety disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder in this period. Therefore, the presence of obsessions and/or compulsions should be carefully evaluated among all patients in postpartum period. In this article, the epidemiology, etiology and clinical features of postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder are reviewed and management through cognitive behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy in . . .comparison with other obsessive compulsive patients are evaluated based on previous literature Daha fazlası Daha az
