Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often experience distinct physical changes – including a higher body mass index and advanced pubertal onset – that could heighten social stressors, according to research led by Blythe Corbett, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The Vanderbilt Center of Excellence for Children in State Custody (COE) launched a 12-week series, titled "Roots of Resiliency," in partnership with Tennessee Department of Children's Services in response to a request from Tennessee Governor Bill Lee's office to provide support for families across the state during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Yi Deng, M.D., resident in Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, and Warren Taylor, M.D., professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, have worked together to publish a paper titled "Predictors of recurrence in remitted late-life depression" in the journal Depression and Anxiety. The paper examines factors in older adults that may predict the return of depression after successful antidepressant treatment. Click here to view the abstract.
