Tackling test anxiety may help prevent more severe problems
Showing students how to cope with test anxiety might also help them to handle their built-up angst and fretfulness about other issues. The results of a new study by Carl Weems of the University of New Orleans show that anxiety intervention programs that focus on academic matters fit well into the demands of the school routine, and do not carry the same stigma among youth as general anxiety programs do. (2014-05-08)

Behavior and demographics associated with divorce may have greater effect on children than actual divorce, study says

Genetic differences across species guide vocal learning in juvenile songbirds
Juvenile birds discriminate and selectively learn their own species' songs even when primarily exposed to the songs of other species, but the underlying mechanism has remained unknown. A new study, by researchers at Uppsala University, shows that song discrimination arises due to genetic differences between species, rather than early learning or other mechanisms. The results are published in Nature Ecology & Evolution. (2017-06-12)

Sleep breathing machine shows clear benefits in children with sleep apnea
Children and adolescents with obstructive sleep apnea had substantial improvements in attention, anxiety and quality of life after treatment with positive airway pressure -- a nighttime therapy in which a machine delivers a stream of air through a mask into the nose.

Achieving patient-centered care across the spectrum
Providing patient-centered care consistently in clinical practice requires practitioners who are able to recognize that different clinical situations require different approaches and are skilled enough to adapt. Dr. Glyn Elwyn of the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science is the principal investigator of a study in the current issue of Annals of Family Medicine. Elwyn said that practitioners could use or integrate two methods: shared decision making and motivational interviewing when discussing options for treatment with patients. (2014-05-13)

Juvenile Courts May Face Higher Caseload Due To Welfare Reform
Federal welfare reform may end up burdening the country's already-stressed juvenile justice system, according to an expert at Ohio State University. She said reforms that force people from the welfare rolls will have a disproportionate effect on children because they make up the majority of welfare beneficiaries. (1999-04-28)

Children with autism need intervention over a long period of time
Nine out of 10 preschool children with autism still have major difficulties within the autism field at school age, despite having received early intervention. A majority of the parents stated that the children do not receive sufficient support at school.

Hearts that drum together beat together
Researchers from Bar-Ilan University found that in a structured group drumming task aspects of participants' heart function synchronized. In a subsequent improvisational drumming task, groups with high physiological synchrony in the structured task showed more coordination in drumming. The data show that behavioral synchronization and enhanced physiological synchronization while drumming each uniquely predicts a heightened experience of group cohesion. Additionally, higher physiological synchrony predicts enhanced group performance in a subsequent, different group task. (2020-05-21)
