Childhood neglect (CN) is one of the most widespread type of child maltreatment. CN can generate several consequences (e.g. depression, anxiety) throughout adolescence and adulthood. Maternal and paternal neglect may cause different pathological outcomes in development. Children who experienced CN tend to use specific maladaptive strategies of emotional regulation, including rumination. This project aims to investigate the connection between maternal and paternal neglect and repetitive thoughts (i.e. depressive and anger rumination).

Electronic devices (such as mobile phones) can be used as a support for mental health practices. The advantages of using this technology in clinical settings are multiple, from the remote acquisition of data using self-report questionnaires to the recording of psychophysiological data through biosensors (e.g pulse rate, heart rate variability, sleep cycles monitoring). All these data can be used to build home-based models of health care with a significant reduction of costs and an increase of their efficacy (Kumar et al., 2013).Moreover, mobile applications can be used also to deliver self-administered interventions for the management of negative mental and physical states (e.g. guided mindfulness-based exercises, psychoeducational contents). The aim of this project is to implement new technologies into existing health care services and thus to simplify the current practices by means of: (1) computerized questionnaires and tasks and fully automated scoring procedures for psychological assessments; (2) mobile applications for the collection of time series which can be used to build personalized temporal network of functioning possibly able to predict the evolution of symptoms over time.

Perfectionism is a well-known multidimensional construct defined as ‘high standards of performance which are accompanied by tendencies for overly critical evaluations of one’s behavior’ including overconcern with mistakes to the extent that performance is either perfect or worthless and minor flaws represent failure (Frost et al., 1990). Specific error-related EEG components have been observed while performing an error-signaling task (Steinhauser and Yeung, 2010), but there is still no evidence of an associated autonomic activation. The aim of this project is to investigate the presence of an autonomic response to errors during a simple visual task performance and to compare the activation of individuals with low and high levels of perfectionism measured using validated self-reported questionnaires.

Virtual reality (VR) received increasing attention in the last years since the drop of its cost allows to spread its use in a variety of contexts. In particular, the possibility to experience sensory stimulation in VR immersive environments gives psychologists the opportunity to create customized exposure experiences for the treatment of phobias, post-traumatic stress disorders, and substance use disorder (Botella et al., 2017; Beidel et al., 2019; Worley, 2019). There are multiple advantages in the use of VR compared to traditional techniques (e.g mental imagery, in vivo exposure): VR can be personalized in great detail; it offers the opportunity of carrying out exposures in a safe environment (compared to in vivo exposure); and it can be extended to domestic use by means of smartphones (Hartanto et al., 2015). The aim of this project is to create personalized virtual environments for the implementation of a VR-based exposure therapy protocol and to test their efficacy.

The experimental approach will be based on brain stimulation using repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in healthy subjects. This technique is used to treat various pathologies including depression, addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and Tourette syndrome. We will evaluate the role of the Pre-supplementary motor area and language centres using low frequency (inhibitory) and high frequency (excitatory) rTMS. The experiment will involve participants producing words following the presentation of a stimulus cue. The voluntary control and inhibition processes will also be evaluated using the Stroop task. They will be evaluated at two stages: before receiving rTMS, and during the stimulation, either, giving an excitatory and inhibitory stimulus, with the aim of comparing the changes if these occur with the baselines (status before the stimulation). The time between the presentation of the stimulus and the response of the subject will also be considered, as well as the intensity and fluency of the speech.

Regardless the potential of regulatory focus theory 1for interdisciplinary research, the theory rests underexplored by health professionals interested in sexually transmitted diseases prevention. To address this gap, the current study examines whether the different message framing (fit vs. unfit)2 between the regulatory focus (promotion vs. prevention) would lead to higher or lower risk perception of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Moreover, the study aims to test the existence of correlations between regulatory focus with obsessive and compulsive tendencies, providing a deeper explanation about risk perception of STIs.In this area of research, experimental tests of the effects of regulatory fit can improve the design of persuasive health messages and the development of effective intervention campaigns.

Introduction: Obesity is a risk factor for heart disease, diabetes mellitus, liver and joint disorders, and cancer. The WHO estimates that 1.5 billion people worldwide are overweight and 500 million are obese. The obesity problem is no longer limited to industrialized countries.Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a form of complementary medicine and has a holistic view of humans. It focuses on strengthening the affected organ systems (element earth and wood) and the reduction of pathogenic factors (moisture, phlegm, stagnation). From the point of view of TCM, all complaints and diseases are caused by an imbalance between body and soul, as well as the 5 organ systems that are also assigned to specific elements (5 element theory). The primary goal of TCM is to strengthen the immune system and restore the inner balance.For several reasons, including reduction of pharmacological treatment, TCM can make a significant contribution to health care and quality of life. The combination of conventional medicine and concomitant TCM treatment has been accepted and increasingly established in Asian culture and Western society.
Design: Prospective multicentric questionnaire study
Study cohort: 12 German-speaking D-A-CH centers: 5000 respondents
Objective: The aim of the study is to evaluate the acceptance of visitors to the obesity outpatient clinics for an accompanying TCM treatment using a questionnaire. The question is, whether the patients have already used bariatric treatments, including conventional Western and / or Complementary medicine, what kind of complaints they have, and whether they would treat them with TCM. Furthermore, the type of TCM treatments they would choose, the frequency of outpatient visits and the amount of money they would be willing to pay for various TCM therapies are evaluated. In a TCM outpatient clinic, herbal therapy prescriptions and acupuncture treatments are prescribed. In addition, training, nutritional advice and cooking classes are recommended. For the effective workflow of a TCM outpatient clinic, it is essential to evaluate the funds available to patients so that the prescribed additional therapies are actually used.

Einleitung: Fettleibigkeit ist ein Risikofaktor für Herzerkrankungen, Diabetes mellitus, Leber und Gelenksstörungen und Krebs. Die WHO schätzt, dass 1,5 Milliarden Menschen weltweit übergewichtig und 500 Millionen adipös sind. Das Fettleibigkeitsproblem ist nicht mehr nur auf die Industrieländer beschränkt.Die Traditionelle Chinesische Medizin (TCM) ist eine Form der Komplementärmedizin und hat eine ganzheitliche Sicht auf den Menschen. Sie fokussiert auf die Stärkung der betroffenen Organsysteme (Element Erde und Holz) und der Reduktion von pathogenen Faktoren (Feuchtigkeit, Schleim, Stagnation). Aus Sicht der TCM entstehen sämtliche Beschwerden und Erkrankungen durch ein Ungleichgewicht zwischen Körper und Seele, sowie den 5 Organsystemen, die auch spezifischen Elementen zugeordnet werden (5 Elemente Theorie). Die TCM zielt primär darauf ab, das Immunsystem zu stärken und die innere Balance wieder herzustellen. Aus mehreren Gründen einschließlich Verringerung der pharmakologischen Behandlung kann TCM einen bedeutenden Beitrag zur Gesundheitspflege und zur Lebensqualität leisten. Die Kombination von konventioneller Medizin und begleitender TCM-Behandlung wurde akzeptiert und zunehmend in der asiatischen Kultur sowie in der westlichen Gesellschaft etabliert.
Design: Prospektive multizentrische Fragebogenstudie
Studienkohorte: 15 deutschsprachige D-A-CH Zentren: 5000 Befragte
Ziel: Ziel der Studie ist, die Akzeptanz von BesucherInnen / PatientInnen der Adipositas-Ambulanzen bezüglich einer begleitenden TCM Behandlung anhand eines Fragebogens zu evaluieren. Gefragt wird, ob die PatientInnen bereits bariatrische Behandlungen einschließlich konventioneller westlicher und/oder komplementärer Medizin in Anspruch genommen haben, welche Art von Beschwerden sie haben, und ob sie die mit TCM behandeln würden. Weiters wird die Art der TCM Behandlungen, die sie wählen würden, die Häufigkeit der Ambulanzbesuche und die Menge an Geld, die sie bereit wären, für verschiedene TCM-Therapien zu zahlen, evaluiert. In einer TCM-Ambulanz werden Kräutertherapie-Rezepte und Akupunkturbehandlungen verordnet. Zusätzlich werden Schulungen, Ernährungsberatungen sowie Kochkurse empfohlen. Für den effektiven Betrieb einer TCM-Ambulanz ist es wesentlich, zu evaluieren, welche Geldmittel den Ambulanz-PatientInnen zur Verfügung stehen, damit die verordneten zusätzlichen Therapien auch wirklich in Anspruch genommen werden.

Introduction: Abdominal obesity, insulin resistance with diabetes mellitus 2, lipid metabolism disorders and high blood pressure form the quartet of the metabolic syndrome. Heart diseases, fatty liver, musculoskeletal disorders, depression and cancer are serious consequences of metabolic derailment. The WHO estimates that nearly 2 billion people worldwide are overweight (39% of the world's population) and 650 million are obese (13% of the world's population). Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and works by stimulating the autonomic nervous system and release of neurotransmitters in the hypothalamus and several cranial nerve nuclei. These effects could be proven in countless studies. The WHO has published a clear indication list for acupuncture and thus confirmed the effect. Liver fasting according to Dr. Worm is an essential life style measure to improve liver metabolism. This helps to reduce and maintain weight in the long term.
Design: Prospective Randomized Monocentric Study
Study cohort: 141 patients
Group A (Acupuncture & Liver fasting): 49 patients; Group B (Liver fasting): 49 patients; Group C (Control): 42 patients
Aim: The study aims to study the effect of acupuncture (body and ear acupuncture) in combination with preoperative liver fasting according to Dr. Worm with subsequent meal replacement to evaluate a weight reduction before bariatric surgery. Using objective metric parameters (body mass index - BMI, body weight, bio-impedance analysis, etc.), laboratory parameters (liver function parameters, HbA1c, etc.) and the subjective quality of life (questionnaires: WHOQOL-BREF, BAROS, BARAQOL) the effect should be reliably mapped.

Herzerkrankungen, Leberverfettung, Erkrankungen des Bewegungsapparates, Depressionen und Krebs sind schwerwiegende Folgen der metablischen Entgleisung. Die WHO schätzt, dass knapp 2 Milliarden Menschen weltweit übergewichtig (39% der Weltbevölkerung) und 650 Millionen adipös (13% der Weltbevölkerung) sind.Die Akupunktur ist Teil der Traditionellen Chinesischen Medizin (TCM) und wirkt unter anderem durch Stimulation des vegetativen Nervensystem und Freisetzung von Neurotransmittern im Hypothalamus und mehreren Hirnnervenkernen. Die WHO hat eine klare Indikationsliste für die Akupunktur herausgebracht und somit die Wirkung bestätigt. Das Leberfasten nach Dr. Worm ist eine  Maßnahme, um den Leberstoffwechsel zu verbessern. Dadurch lässt sich langfristig das Gewicht reduzieren und auch halten.

Meta-cognition refers to the “stable knowledge or beliefs about one’s own cognitive system, and knowledge about factors that affect the functioning of the system; the regulation and awareness of the current state of cognition, and appraisal of the significance of thought and memories” (Wells, 1995, p. 302). Wells and Matthews (1994, 1996) developed the self-regulatory executive function (S-REF) model in which meta-cognitive beliefs play a role in the persistence of maladaptive forms of coping (e.g. heightened self-focused attention, rumination and worry, and threat monitoring; termed the cognitive attentional syndrome - CAS), which in turn contribute to the development and maintenance of psychological disturbances and distress. Meta-cognitive beliefs can be divided in: 1) positive meta-cognitive beliefs about control strategies that impact on inner events and 2) negative meta-cognitive beliefs concerning the significance, controllability, and danger of inner events (Wells, 2000). 
Coherently with the S-REF model, meta-cognition has been investigated as a feature of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive and panic disorder, and depression on adult populations (Cucchi et al., 2012; Holeva, Tarrier, &Wells, 2001; Papageorgiou & Wells, 2003). Recent studies have extended the meta-cognitive model to a different target age, evaluating its applicability to children and adolescents (Ellis & Hudson, 2010; Esbjørn, Normann, & Reinholdt-Dunne, 2015; Simons, Schneider, & Herpertz-Dahlmann, 2006).
Previous research suggests that children as young as 7 years of age endorse both positive and negative beliefs about worry, and that these beliefs are positively associated with emotional symptoms. Moreover, emerging research supports the extension of metacognitive model of anxiety to developmental age populations. Thus, studies on worry and metacognition in children affected by anxious and depressive symptoms can help in determining whether the metacognitive model can be applied to children. Moreover, no study, to our knowledge, has so far compared worry and positive/negative beliefs about worry in different types of anxiety symptoms. In addition, the role of depressive symptoms in moderating the relationship between worry/metacognition and anxiety is actually unclear. Evaluating whether metacognitive processes contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety symptoms can guide the development of specific training for the treatment of anxiety disorders, as well as the elaboration of preventive programs.
Interestingly, studies conducted on both adults and adolescents found that low emotion identification skills and emotional awareness are able to predict poor emotion regulation strategies and higher rates of anxiety/depression (Ciarrochi et al., 2008; Taylor & Bagby, 2004). Therefore, such constructs also deserve to be investigated in the present work.

The main purpose of the study is to evaluate metacognitive processes (worry and rumination) and metacognitive beliefs in children presenting different types of anxiety symptoms (somatic anxiety, separation anxiety, social anxiety, generalized anxiety) and depressive symptoms, considering the moderation effect of emotional status, emotional awareness and meta-emotive competence. In addition, considering the tight (and variable) relation among theory of mind, executive functions and metacognition, relevant measures assessing such abilities will be administered to children. Finally, the relationship between children’s and parents’ metacognition will be analysed.

The project aims at developing a non-invasive tool for recognizing and analysing emotional response in children with anxiety disorders symptoms. The project is carried out within an interacting environment that combines and integrates expertise in the field of Statistics, Computer Science, Bioengineering, Psychology. Specifically, as a final result, we aim at contributing to the research in the field of affective sciences by identifying a set of physiological indices and psychological traits/characteristics/profiles characterizing different emotional states in children affected by symptoms of anxiety disorders. This goal can be reached only by integrating data on facial expression, biosignals, clinical and demographic characteristics and using robust statistical methodology. Deriving accurate classification rules of emotional states based on all these information is crucial for improving/enhancing child’s social performances and psychosocial wellness. The identification of processes underlying the development and maintenance of deficits in these abilities is crucial not only from a diagnostic point of view and for determining trait complexity but also to improve treatment of anxiety disorders.

The purpose of this study is to undertake a first experiment to explore the direct causal effect of desire thinking on permissive beliefs.  A recent experimental study demonstrated that the induction of desire thinking had a significant effect on craving compared to distraction across a range of addictive behaviours in a community (Caselli, Soliani & Spada, 2013) and clinical sample of patients with AUD (Caselli, Gemelli & Spada, 2017). The impact of desire thinking was independent of baseline craving. The current study extended the investigation about the effect of desire thinking on permissive belifs in a sample of social drinker and patients with AUD. In particular, we tested: (1) whether the induction of desire thinking would have a stronger effect on rate of conviction in permissive beliefs compared to a control cognitive response in the form of distraction; and (2) whether this effect would be specific for the AUD patients.

Jealousy is supported by some cardinal elements: core beliefs and rules or intermediate beliefs (on self, others and world), automatic thoughts and cognitive bias (systematic errors of thought), worry and rumination (dysfunctional coping strategies that are used in order to deal with threats of rejection, betrayal or abandonment). All these elements contribute to maintain and process the initially detected feeling of threat, amplify the importance of events, confirm fears and fix the imagination on what could happen or what we think has already happened. Furthermore, there is another cardinal element that is metacognition, a knowledge system consisting of a set of beliefs that the individual uses to evaluate his or her mental phenomena. Metacognition influences attentional resources and focuses individual's attention on specific aspects of his or her mental phenomena, creating dysfunctional processes and self-confirming circuits that help generate and maintain symptoms. The aim of the study is to investigate jealousy, metacognition and worry in romantic relationships. Questions will investigate and focus on thoughts, moods (anxiety or depression traits), jealousy and worry

The experiment aims to investigate how much desiring brooding affects permissive beliefs about smoking.
The subjects will be divided into two main groups: Heavy Smokers (subjects who smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day) and Light Smokers (subjects who smoke less than 15 cigarettes a day).
Each group will be measured the permissive convictions in a baseline phase through the use of a questionnaire, then a "induction" phase will take place in which the desiring brooding will be induced to each subject.
Later in the “T1” phase the permissive convictions will be measured again through the use of the same questionnaire used in the baseline phase. Subsequently, within each main group, 3 subgroups will be created (randomly) to perform a different task.
Task 1: Smoking reasoning to convince a person to smoke
Task 2: Smoking reasoning to convince a person to quit smoking
Task 3: Reasoning on why smoking campaigns don't work.
Once the tasks are completed, the permissive beliefs will be measured in the “T2” phase. Subsequently in the “break” phase, the subjects will be able to relax. Finally, in the “T3” phase the permissive convictions will be measured again.

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of desire thinking on the urge to execute a compulsive behaviours.
Desire thinking is a voluntary cognitive process that arise when a desire for something rise in the individual consciousness.
It’s a bipolar construct consisting in an imaginal part called “imaginal prefiguration’’ and a verbal part called “verbal perseveration’’ .
We would investigate whether an exposure to desire thinking would increase the urge to execute a compulsive behaviour (hands cleaning) using some tactile and visual stimuli on the headphones in a group of a non-clinical sample of student (18-29 y/o).
The present study would shown an increase of cleaning behaviours after exposure and desire thinking induction through the observation and measurement of subjects’s behaviours.
Previous researches found that there is an association between desire thinking and compulsive behaviours, a study conducted on 180 subjects of the normal popolation, show a significant association between desire thinking and obssessive-compulsive symptoms; for these reason, we expect that subjects that will be exposed to an aversive stimuli plus induction of desire thinking will feel more urge to execute a compulsive behaviour compared to subjects that will be exposed to a distraction induction paradigm.

Resilience research is nowadays undergoing a deep transformation. Recent reviews of the literature highlighted a surprising lack of information about the predictors of resilience in preschool age and developmental trajectories of resilience over time in healthy subjects. The main aim of the present study is thus to investigate potential predictors of resilience in a sample of Italian preschoolers. A sample of 100 children aged four years (attending the second year of kindergarten) will be recruited and followed for four years (until the second year of primary school). Parents will be informed about the aims of the research and will sign an informed consent in order to participate and to allow their children’s participation in the study, in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki. Taking into account preschoolers’ limited attention span, data will be collected on an individual basis in three different occasions by a trained experimenter. Correlates and potential predictors of resilience were selected basing on the literature review. Therefore, children's assessment will comprehend a test on resilience and the administration of tasks on theory of mind, verbal ability, executive functions, quality of life, relationship with the teacher, coping and attributional style. In order to have a clearer picture of the children's functioning, we will also administer questionnaires to teachers and parents. More specifically, teachers will complete questionnaires regarding their relationship with each child and children’s behaviour. Whereas parents will complete questionnaires on their child’s behaviour, resilience and life events, and on satisfaction with parenthood. Results of the present research will allow a better comprehension of the mechanisms underlying the gradual evolution of resilience over the transition to primary school and will constitute a basis for interventions aimed at enhancing resilience among healthy children.

Objective

The label “Learning Disabilities” (LD) refers to an umbrella construct in which different developmental disorders are compelled. They are characterized by difficulties in one or more domains of school skills (reading, writing and arithmetic) and they can not be ascribed to the lack of education, to intellectual disabilities or sensory and/or neurological deficits. The aim of the present study, quantitative in nature, is to analyze cognitive profiles measured by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. Fourth Edition (WISC-IV) in an Italian speaking sample of children (7-13 years old) affected by different LD (200 children affected by Dyslexia, 200 children affected by Dysorthography, 200 children affected by Dyscalculia) and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (200 children) compared to a control group. Several benefits could derive from this research line. First of all, by jointly evaluating cognitive profiles and other neuropsychological tests, a more reliable clinical tool for assessing patients’ symptomatology could be developed, thus improving assessment processes. Moreover, changes in cognitive profiles could be used as a primary measure in evaluating treatment efficacy. From a methodological point of view, our sample will include children who will refer to several diagnostic centers of developmental psychology in Italy for learning difficulties. Scores obtained in WISC-IV subtests will be compared in order to understand deficit in cognitive abilities peculiar of these diagnostic categories. The neuropsychological assessment of LD, ADHD, Cognitive Abilities and the rating of the emotional-behavioral phenotypes will be realized using standardized test. Statistical analyses, such as independent-samples t-test and chi-square test, will be used to compare both sub-tests mean scores and ipsative mean scores among our groups. Parents will be informed about the aims of the research and will sign an informed consent in order to allow their children’s participation in the study in accordance with Declaration of Helsinki.
