Studying major depressive disorders and related factors is necessary to understand the nature of this disorder and to formulate more effective therapeutic strategies. Approximate duration of one episode of major depressive disorder is averagely between 3 to 12 months; however, in chronic types, the ratio would be prolonged to 24 months. The aime of this research which performed through second-order dynamic model was to investigate the effectiveness of antidepressants and third wave cognitive-behavioral therapies on the duration of any episode of major depressive disorder. Through MATLAB programming and changing the model parameters, we investigate the effectiveness of treatments on duration of episode in major depressive disorder. The average age of any participants were considered  64 years old. Outcomes before and after 14 weeks treatment with antidepressants drugs (as imipramine or its equivalent of therapeutic services) and psychotherapies (included mindfulness-based acceptance and commitment therapty [ACT] and  dialectical behavior therapy [DBT]) were obtained. According to the findings, for most of people suffering from major depressive disorder, relapses are prevalent phenomena. Depression relapse time durations have been 144, 71, 68, and 59 months respectively under following conditions: receiving no treatment; receiving untidepressants; receiving dialectical behavior therapy; and, receiving a combination of antidepressants and dialectical behavior therapy. The results from dynamic modeling showed that combined method of ACT, DBT, and using antidepressant (or its equivalant) drugs provides better outcomes in treatment for depression and relapse prevention. This combined method reduced the duration of recovery from depression by 10 months.

The aim of this research was comparison of the effectiveness of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy(MBCT) and Transcranial direct-current Stimulation(tDCS) in pain intensity and quality of life and their subcomponents on fibromyalgia patients. The study was semi-experimental pre-post treatment design. 36 fibromyalgia patients were selected and randomly classified into three MBCT, tDCS and sham group. The members of these groups were asked to complete short form of McGill Pain questionnaire and SF-36 Quality of life questionnaire before and after the intervention. Multivariate Covariance analysis showed that in terms of the pain intense variable, while both treatments were effective, but no significant differences between MBCT and tDCS treatment was seen(P<0.05) In terms of quality of life, the MBCT method was significantly more effective than both sham and tDCS groups(P<0.05) this paper showed significant results in effectiveness of MBCT and tDCS on fibromyalgia patients that could help the therapists to treat them and decrease their treatment costs.

The present study investigated the role of cognitive control and positive memory characteristics with special attention to the mediating roles of cognitive process and cognitive fatigue in flood-stricken victims. A sample of 280 participants were selected from flood-stricken areas including Gonbad, Gomishan and Aghghala. Data were collected using PCL-5, CPOTS, MEQ_SF, Mental Fatigue Scale, WAIS-IV, Stroop Test and Wisconsin Card Sorting. The data were then analyzed using SPSS and Smart PLS-3 softwares. The findings indicated no direct link between cognitive process and PTSD symptoms. However, cognitive process played a full mediating role in the relationship between cognitive control and PTSD symptoms and a partial mediating role in the relationship between positive memory characteristics and PTSD symptoms. The findings also revealed cognitive fatigue played a partial mediating role in the relationship between both cognitive contol and PTSD symptoms and positive memory characteristics and PTSD symptoms. The findings further showed  the purposed model to investigate the relationships between the variables enjoyed a good fit. These findings can be the first step in identifying the PTSD symptoms of people who have been through flood trauma and can help us design evidence-based educational and rehabilitative programs to reduce psychocognitive pains of flood victims

Self-differentiation is a contextual phenomenon and dependent on social conditions that is formed and experienced in a dynamic process under the influence of various conditions. Considering this issue, the question was raised, what are the basic components in the formation of self-differentiation? For this purpose, the qualitative approach, the systematic design of grounded theory at the level of conceptual ordering has been used. Through theoretical sampling and according to theoretical saturation, 17 people were interviewed. Data analysis was done using the first stage of theoratical coding method. After data analysis, 112 primary codes were identified, then 28 subcategories and 3 categories were formed. The findings show that self-differentiation emerges and flows in the form of independent thoughts, behaviors and attitudes along with identity seeking and social dignity. As a result, in the formation of self-differentiation, the basic components are mainly experienced as intellectual independence, but identity seeking and social dignity are another part of these components that are experienced. The findings of this study, guidance for future researches and provided a deeper understanding of this psychological characteristic in the cultural context, which can also have practical consequences in family therapy with regard to multicultural issues.

Death anxiety is commonly experienced by individuals with advanced cancer who have a limited life expectancy. The Death and Dying Distress Scale (DADDS) is a validated measure that was created to capture this experience; but no Persian version is available to date. We conducted a cross-sectional study to explore the psychometric properties of a Pearsion version DADDS (DADDS) in patients with advanced cancer.200 patients with advanced cancer were recruited from the Imam Khomeini, Shohada Tajrish and Baqiyatallah hospitals. Measures administered included: DADDS-C, Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9), and General Anxiety Disorder-7(GAD-7). McDonald's Omega, Cronbach's alpha, Confirmatory Factor Analysis were used to test DADDS reliability and validity.The Persian version of DADDS has good reliability (internal consistency between 0.67 and 0.91 and test-retest reliability between 0.73 and 0.89) and appropriate convergent validity through correlation with PHQ-9 and GAD-7 in the range was between (0.47 to 0.51). Also, according to construct validity, SEM showed that the two-factor model is the best fitting model for DADDS in Persian language.The DADDS is a valid measure of death anxiety in Iranian patients with advanced cancer. It may provide useful information in the assessment and treatment of distress in patients near the end of life.
