CELAM Research Seminars, Spring 2018


Under hösten kommer seminarier hållas, ungefär varannan tisdag, där forskare verksamma inom CELAM presenterar delar av sin forskning.

Seminarierna är öppna för forskare, studenter och verksamheternas personal.
Om du åker kommunalt – buss Blå Express mot Gråbo eller Stenared, hållplats Rågården.
Om du inte har inpasseringskort till Rågården anmäl dig till Åse Holl så hon kan skriva upp dig på besökslistan. Viktigt att ta med giltig legitimation att visa i receptionen.

CELAM Seminar:

Predicting Negative Outcomes in Adulthood in Individuals Displaying Symptoms of Anxiety in Childhood in a Nation-Wide Twin Study.
Seminariet kommer att hållas på engelska.

Sabrina Doering, PhD Student

In the developed world, mental disorders account for one eighth of the disability adjusted life years due to disease and are a leading cause of disability. Anxiety disorders account for one fourth of the disability attributed to mental disorders and are often followed by depression, substance abuse, a decreased life satisfaction and losses in educational, social, or familial spheres. Research has shown that anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders in childhood and adolescence, with a median age of onset of 11 years and prevalence estimates between 15 and 20%. From a clinical perspective, delineating trajectories of anxiety based on type and severity of coexisting disorders will provide information as to whether comorbidity constellations constitute more meaningful and clinically relevant syndromes with distinguishable outcomes. If they do, then treatment planning should be adjusted accordingly. In this seminar, I will present my recently started doctoral project which aims to develop prediction models to identify individuals with anxiety/anxiety-symptomatology that are in need of special attention with regards to high likelihood of developing negative life outcomes. In addition, the project aims to understand and depict the features that characterize the group of individuals with anxiety/anxiety-symptomatology with a high likelihood of developing negative life outcomes. The specific aims are to predict common negative outcomes (e.g., mental health problems, poor school achievement, unemployment, sick leave) in adolescence in individuals with anxiety, as well as to predict rare negative outcomes (e.g., suicide attempts and criminality) in adolescence and early adulthood in individuals with anxiety. Outcomes will be based on the Swedish twin registry (Child and Adolescent Twin Study in Sweden; CATSS) and patient-register based.
