Research Spotlight

Aetiological Understanding of Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Classificatory Analogues: A Systematic Umbrella Review

Summary

  • We included 452 reviews (132 systematic reviews including meta-analyses, 133 systematic reviews, 197 narrative reviews), of which 132 (29%) focused on two or more of the investigated health conditions simultaneously. 

  • Across diagnoses, biological factors were addressed in 90% (k = 405), psychological in 33% (k = 150), social in 12% (k = 54), and healthcare factors in 5% (k = 23) of the reviews. 

Implications

  • High-quality systematic reviews suggest that deficient conditioned pain modulation, genetic factors, changes in the immune, endocrinological, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and nervous system, and psychosocial factors such as sexual abuse and pain catastrophizing increase the risk for FSS.

Loneliness Across the COVID-19 Pandemic: Risk Factors in Norwegian Young People

Summary

  • There is evidence of increasing levels of loneliness in Norwegian young people before the COVID-19 pandemic. It is not clear how the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated necessary restrictions, impacted on these trends.

  • This study analyzed data from three waves of a Norwegian national higher education student survey on the development of loneliness over time and associated risk factors.

Implications

  • Loneliness increased among university students from 2018 to 2021 and decreased from 2021 to 2022, but was still higher in 2022 than pre-pandemic levels.

  • Loneliness was higher in areas with higher restriction levels in 2021.

  • Spending time on campus was associated with lower levels of loneliness.

  • Online learning was related to higher levels of loneliness.

Growing (Up) in Times of Multiple Crises – A Call for Mental Health (Research) Action

Summary

  • European children and adolescents face an array of challenges, including the Ukraine war, COVID-19's mental health consequences, economic decline, societal divisions, biodiversity loss, and climate change.

  • These crises have tangible implications for youth mental health, though public healthcare has failed to keep up with the developments.

Implications

  • Clinical psychologists must shift their approach to address systemic factors, moving beyond individual interventions to consider societal influences on mental health.

  • A multilevel model of societal change is recommended, emphasizing collective efforts to address these multifaceted crises and focus on prevention.
