first_img Tags anxietymental healthpost-traumatic stress By Leah Samuel March 23, 2016 Reprints And psychologists are now using these kinds of events to better understand the phenomenon of resilience — how it’s made, what it looks like, who has it, and how to create it where it doesn’t yet exist.All that will come later, though. In the immediate aftermath of Tuesday’s attacks, the Belgian Institute for Psychotraumatology started mobilizing a team of emergency responders to provide mental health services for citizens who feel affected by the attacks.According to Naomi Vandamme, a clinical psychologist with the organization, her team is particularly focused on those who are most vulnerable to post-traumatic stress disorder.“PTSD rarely comes alone,” Vandamme said. “People who get it will often have some other disorder, like depression or anxiety. And those who had already been traumatized before the event will experience more post-traumatic stress.”One of the first signs of post-traumatic stress that Belgium can expect to see is that some people will avoid certain areas, Vandamme said.“People may think, ‘I’m not going to take the metro,’ or ‘I won’t go into the city,’ or ‘I’m not going to take my vacation because it might not be safe,’” she said, adding that those behaving so fearfully will need supportive care. But it is what happens after those feelings are manifested that most intrigues mental health experts. Researchers now want to go beyond the trauma to find out how some people recover quickly or limit the emotional and mental damage.

Geert Vanden Wijngaert/AP Tragic events — from the 9/11 attacks to the Boston Marathon bombing to the recent shootings in San Bernardino, Calif., and Paris — have all brought attention to their psychological impact. Research has shown, for example, that after terrorist attacks, later disasters and media coverage can increase post-traumatic stress.advertisement Related: Recovering from a traumatic event like the airport and subway attacks in Brussels this week starts long before the final tally of casualties and damage. For psychology professor Elke Van Hoof, it started in her classroom on Tuesday morning at Vrije University in Brussels.As her students’ phones started pinging with news of the terror, “we stayed in the classroom together and talked,” Van Hoof told STAT, just hours after the attack.Some students cried, others got angry. “It’s okay to feel angry and to feel despair,” Van Hoof said.advertisement HealthBrussels attacks: A tragic opportunity to study mental health response to terror How Paris hospitals dealt with the terror attacks Vandamme and her colleagues will also be researching the fallout from the deadly bombings in Brussels — yet another tragic data point in the growing literature about how people do or don’t persevere through the chaos.“It’s a little too soon to know what we will study, but we have a research team in place,” Vandamme said. “I would be very interested in comparing the group that will have a lot of trauma-related disorders to those that don’t. What I would love to learn about are the people who will not have a problem.“We do know that people who have a safe relationship with a supportive figure in their lives, and people with a stronger sense of identity, have better coping skills,” Vandamme added. “But we want to learn how, so we can bring services that can bring people closure on these events.”last_img read more

first_imgA year after I failed the MoCA, a top neuroimmunologist on the East Coast diagnosed me with a neurological virus that caused atrophy and hypometabolism — in short, neurons were dying — on the left side of my brain. As a result, I lost significant function in my right arm and leg, and my ability to think and remember declined. He strongly urged neurological rehabilitation geared toward stroke management, since my symptoms were similar to those that follow a stroke.Rehab was my only shot at improving, he said, so I went. I spent 2 1/2 years in five types of neurological rehab at two academic medical centers in New York. I attended therapy up to six times a week and never missed a session. From ages 35 to 37, I sat in stroke rehab centers and braved onlookers who clearly wondered why a youngster like me was in the waiting room.All the while I grappled with a deeply distressing mix of feelings: fear that rehab wouldn’t work, uncertainty that I would regain my complete functional capacity, and profound confusion about what had happened to me.My rehab worked tremendously, thanks to brilliant specialists and my deep desire to pull out of the hold the virus had on me. Emotionally, I worked to accept that I had lost nearly five years of my life to a virus. That I had gone from a fundraising consultant for nonprofits to a patient with a drastic loss of function. That a young woman with post-graduate degrees had failed a cognitive assessment test designed for people twice her age.I could not have anticipated the politicization of the MoCA in the 2020 election. I have watched talking heads and cable news anchors laugh as they depict the MoCA in the context of President Trump and his professed perfect score. They mock the section where the testee is asked to name line drawings of three animals. Feign disbelief that anyone without diagnosed dementia can’t draw a clock showing a specific time. Are certain that anyone can name scores of words that start with “f.”I wasn’t laughing when I failed the test. And I’m not laughing now.

Allen G. Breed/AP First OpinionI failed — at age 34 — the now-politicized Montreal Cognitive Assessment Please enter a valid email address. One sunny day in October 2016, I failed the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA). That’s the test pundits are having a field day with because it’s probably the one President Trump recently bragged that he “aced.”I remember that day vividly. My neurologist and I sat facing each other over a mahogany desk in Menlo Park, Calif. I’d taken the test because of worrisome cognitive symptoms I was experiencing. I failed, she said. At age 34.She told me in a calm yet concerned tone, with a hint of surprise. Actually, more than a hint.advertisement Privacy Policy Sabrina Kippur About the Author Reprints I’d failed the MoCA mainly because I had struggled with the memory, attention, language, and delayed recall sections. Regardless of one’s political party, the insensitivity of those poking fun at the test, and by extension the people who fail it, is difficult to take.I understand the media attention. I get that we don’t want a president who requires a cognitive assessment test, or one who feels compelled to boast about his alleged score. But I’m insulted by the unchecked politicization of the MoCA, and I bet others are too.It’s insulting to those who have to take it. Who fail it, especially those who are young when they fail it. Who don’t have dementia or fit the profile of the kind of person who would fail this easy test. Who don’t find the test easy at all. And who work for years to get better.I feel deeply for others taking the MoCA today — young or old — who failed after trying as hard as they could.

first_imgRelatedFive-Day Regional Workshop on Bird Flu Opens Advertisements RelatedFive-Day Regional Workshop on Bird Flu Opens RelatedFive-Day Regional Workshop on Bird Flu Openscenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail As countries worldwide implement measures for early detection and prevention of the Avian Influenza (Bird Flu), response mechanisms in Jamaica and the region are also being intensified.Among these response activities is a workshop on emergency assistance for early detection of the virus, organized by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), through its regional office for Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Wildlife Conservation Society.The workshop is being held at the Hotel Four Seasons in Kingston, from November 13 to 17, with representation from 13 Caribbean islands. The forum will provide training in epidemiology surveillance and management of poultry and wild birds for the early detection of Bird Flu in the American continent.Addressing the opening session today (Nov. 13), Minister of Agriculture and Lands, Roger Clarke thanked the FAO for spearheading the US$0.5 million initiative, which was launched in May 2006, to provide emergency assistance for early detection of Bird Flu in the Caribbean sub-region.Mr. Clarke pointed out that the virus continued to threaten the livelihoods of millions of poor livestock farmers as well as poultry producers, with the potential danger becoming even more immediate with the virus progressing north westerly since 2004.He said that against the background of reports of cases of the virus in 13 new countries, the World Health Organisation (WHO) had urged countries to strengthen their surveillance, laboratory diagnostic services, and emergency preparedness procedures.Focusing on the region, he said Caribbean poultry production was critical to the social and economic landscape of the region, with more than 44 million dozen eggs and 130 million broiler birds produced by CARICOM countries each year.“There are also in excess of 2,600 commercial poultry farmers in the region, employing some 35,000 to 40,000 people. Additionally, more than 16,000 backyard poultry farmers have been identified and the total ex-factory/farm sales have been valued at US$5 billion,” the Minister told the gathering.“For Jamaica, chicken continues to be the most affordable protein source of choice for the mass of the population, and poultry rearing has consistently played the critical role of providing quick cash for small farm households,” he continued, adding that Jamaica was currently self-sufficient in egg production with some 2,000 layer farmers supplying an average of 11 million dozen eggs annually, from which there were earnings of $660 million.With this in mind, Mr. Clarke pointed out that an outbreak of the virus in the region would, “not only have devastating economic and public health-related consequences, but would also pose a serious food security risk. We therefore welcome this FAO training intervention”.He said that although there was no immediate threat to the Caribbean sub-region, the training would go a far way in facilitating preparedness to meet regional and international obligations.In his remarks, FAO Representative for Jamaica, the Bahamas and Belize, Dr. Dunstan Campbell emphasised that, “this workshop is extremely important in assisting countries to put together robust animal disease preparedness plans for invasive species”.“In this particular case, the focus is on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) and one of its main transmitters. We are conscious that this region is at present, free of HPAI and the chances of the virus being transmitted by wild birds at this time are slim.However, we are also aware of the impact that its arrival can have on the economies and health of this region,” he added.The workshop is part of the FAO’s broader comprehensive programme in the region that involves strengthening and developing the capacity of veterinary laboratories to test for Avian Influenza, the training of technicians to identify Bird Flu symptoms, effective national surveillance plans and programmes, and working with the media to inform the public in understanding the nature of the virus and its health implications.The specific objective of the workshop is: to train veterinarians from the national veterinary services of each country, so that they can serve as trainers in their respective countries, on sample collection techniques, proper handling and shipment to reference laboratories, of samples from poultry and wild birds.On completion of the course, each participant should have knowledge on the epidemiology and pathology of the HPAI (H5N1) virus and be able to understand and design surveillance programmes; understand the importance of approaching the problem in a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional manner; know how to collect samples from live and dead birds; know about current regulations applied to air transportation of samples; have knowledge of proper personal safety protocols and disinfectant procedures, and which actions must be taken in the event of wild bird or poultry mortalities when HPAI is suspected.

first_imgRelatedGov’t to Pursue Equitable Trade Policy RelatedGov’t to Pursue Equitable Trade Policy Gov’t to Pursue Equitable Trade Policy Foreign AffairsJune 24, 2012 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government intends to institute a trade policy and modern enforcement mechanism that ensures equity between Jamaica and its trading partners, Industry, Investment and Commerce Minister, Hon. Anthony Hylton has revealed. “The (Ministry)…will be embarking on an initiative to put in place a trade policy and enforcement mechanism that seeks to harness the expertise resident in the Trade Board, Fair Trading Commission, the Anti-Dumping and Subsidies Commission, the Bureau of Standards, Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) and Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO),” he said while making his contribution to the 2012/13 Sectoral Debate in Gordon House on June 20. He said the administration will be embarking on this initiative as it moves to organise its agencies and institutions to address obstacles to fair trade for the benefit of its economic actors.  Pointing out that Jamaica is a signatory to a number of trade arrangements, he cited the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and Treaty arrangements in CARICOM in particular, that imply “benefits and burden imposed on our economies,” noting that creating a balance in the negotiated benefits and burdens, is essential. “In order to achieve and maintain that balance we must produce competitively; (and) we must have access to the marketplace at competitive pricing, as well as presence on the shelves and on the tables of the consumers,” the Minister stressed. He said that from experience, this is known to be a costly endeavor, and that this cost can be increased or reduced based on measures taken by the country’s trading partners. “We are well aware of the various barriers that have acted as impediments to access and expansion in the marketplace,” the Minister pointed out. Mr. Hylton noted that the “modern and responsive enforcement mechanism” to be established, will be put at the disposal of the country’s producers “in order to bring about a level playing field, through engaging the dispute settlement bodies after diplomatic initiatives have been exhausted”. “This in our view is very much needed to ensure that the benefits under these agreements, and not only the burdens, are enjoyed by the productive sector and the society,” Minister Hylton said.center_img RelatedGov’t to Pursue Equitable Trade Policy Advertisementslast_img read more
