      Self-injury is a common and intransigent behaviour for many individuals with intellectual disability. Operant learning models and their derived interventions continue to be the most effective and evidence-based approaches; however, they are often neglected in clinical practice. This review paper presents research delineating phenotype × environment interactions and suggests a developed model of self-injury to account for these interactions. Specifically, the influence of pain upon self-injury is discussed. In addition, the influence of impaired behavioural control on the development of self-injury is hypothesised.

    1. Research Review: Neuropsychological test performance in pediatric obsessive–compulsive disorder – a meta-analysis

      Amitai Abramovitch, Jonathan S. Abramowitz, Andrew Mittelman, Abigail Stark, Kesley Ramsey and Daniel A. Geller

      Article first published online: 13 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/jcpp.12414

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Neuropsychological investigations in pediatric obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) yield inconsistent results. We conducted the first meta-analysis of cognitive functions in pediatric OCD. Small and statistically insignificant effect sizes were found across domains. Our results suggest that youth with OCD do not exhibit meaningful neuropsychological deficits. Given the small number of available controlled neuropsychological studies in pediatric OCD, more research using larger samples is highly needed in this population.
