Paternal involvement in Multisystemic Therapy: Effects on adolescent outcomes and maternal depression Abstract The association between paternal involvement in therapy, adolescent outcomes and maternal depression was examined within the context of Multisystemic Therapy (MST), an empirically supported, family- and community-based treatment for antisocial adolescents. Ninety-nine families were recruited from five mental health agencies providing MST. […] read more

Granic, I., Meusel, L.A., Lamm, C., Woltering, S. & Lewis, M.D. (2012). Emotion regulation in children with behavior problems: Linking behavioral and brain processes.Development and Psychopathology, 24(3), 1019-1029

Emotion regulation in children with behavior problems: Linking behavioral and brain processes Abstract Past studies have shown that aggressive children exhibit rigid (rather than flexible) parent–child interactions; these rigid repertoires may provide the context through which children fail to acquire emotion-regulation skills. Difficulties in regulating emotion are associated with minimal activity in dorsal systems in […] read more

Rubeis, S. de & Granic, I. (2012). Understanding Treatment Effectiveness for Aggressive Youth: The Importance of Regulation in Mother-Child Interactions.Journal of Family Psychology, 26(1), 66-75

Understanding Treatment Effectiveness for Aggressive Youth: The Importance of Regulation in Mother-Child Interactions Abstract Reviews summarizing hundreds of studies cite parent management training (PMT) and cognitive–behavior therapy (CBT) as some of the most effective interventions for aggressive youth. However, studies continue to report variability in outcomes, and researchers have yet to understand why certain interventions […] read more

Larsen, H., Overbeek, G.J., Granic, I. & Engels, R.C.M.E. (2012). The Strong Effect of Other People’s Drinking: Two Experimental Observational Studies in a Real Bar.American Journal on Addictions, 21(2), 168-175

The Strong Effect of Other People’s Drinking: Two Experimental Observational Studies in a Real Bar Abstract Research has demonstrated that when people are with heavy-drinking peers, they consume more alcohol than when they are in the company of light-drinking peers. This social influence process has usually been investigated in clinical laboratories or seminaturalistic drinking settings […] read more

Jansen, M., Doorn, M.E.M. van, Lichtwarck-Aschoff, A., Kuijpers, R.C.W.M., Theunissen, H.L.A., Korte, M., Rossum, J. van, Wauben, A. & Granic, I. (2012). Effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) manualized program for clinically anxious children: study protocol of a randomized controlled trial.BMC Psychiatry, 12, art.-16

Effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) manualized program for clinically anxious children: study protocol of a randomized controlled trial Abstract Background: In the Netherlands, the prevalence of anxiety disorders is 20%; and children with anxiety are at increased risk for psychopathology throughout adulthood. Recently, a revised version of a cognitive behavioral therapy manualized program called […] read more

Lichtwarck-Aschoff, A., Hasselman, F.W., Cox, R.F.A., Pepler, D. & Granic, I. (2012). A Characteristic Destabilization Profile in Parent-Child Interactions Associated with Treatment Efficacy for Aggressive Children. Nonlinear Dynamics, Psychology and Life Sciences, 16(3), 353-379

A Characteristic Destabilization Profile in Parent-Child Interactions Associated with Treatment Efficacy for Aggressive Children Abstract This study examined profiles of change in repeated mother-child interactions over the course of a 12 week treatment period for childhood aggression. The aim of this study was to investigate whether it was possible to detect the characteristic profile of […] read more

Larsen, H., Engels, R.C.M.E., Wiers, R.W.H.J., Granic, I. & Spijkerman, R. (2012). Implicit and explicit alcohol cognitions and observed alcohol consumption: three studies in (semi)naturalistic drinking settings.Addiction, 107(8), 1420-1428

Implicit and explicit alcohol cognitions and observed alcohol consumption: three studies in (semi)naturalistic drinking settings Abstract Aims Dual-process models imply that alcohol use is related to implicit as well as explicit cognitive processes. Few studies have tested whether both types of processes are related to ad libitum drinking. In a series of three studies, we […] read more

Woltering, S., Granic, I., Lamm, C. & Lewis, M.D. (2011). Neural Changes Associated with Treatment Outcome in Children with Externalizing Problems.Biological Psychiatry, 70(9), 873-879

Neural Changes Associated with Treatment Outcome in Children with Externalizing Problems Abstract Background: The current study directly investigated whether changes in the neural correlates of self-regulation (SR) are associated with the effectiveness of treatment for the externalizing problems of children. Methods: Seventy-one children 8–12 years of age with clinical levels of externalizing behavior and their […] read more

Loon, L.M.A. van, Granic, I. & Engels, R.C.M.E. (2011). The Role of Maternal Depression on Treatment Outcome for Children with Externalizing Behavior Problems.Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment, 33(2), 176-186

The Role of Maternal Depression on Treatment Outcome for Children with Externalizing Behavior Problems Abstract Studies have shown that, on average, Parent Management Training combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy decreases children’s externalizing behavior, but some children do not improve through treatment. The current study aimed to examine the role of maternal depression in understanding this variability […] read more

Larsen, H., Zwaluw, C.S. van der, Overbeek, G.J., Granic, I., Franke, B. & Engels, R.C.M.E. (2011). De invloed van het DRD4 VNTR polymorfisme op adaptatie aan andermans alcoholconsumptie [The DRD4 VNTR polymorphism affects social adaptation of alcohol use: Investigation of a gene-environment interaction].Psychologie & Gezondheid, 39(1), 5-11

De invloed van het DRD4 VNTR polymorfisme op adaptatie aan andermans alcoholconsumptie [The DRD4 VNTR polymorphism affects social adaptation of alcohol use: Investigation of a gene-environment interaction] Abstract Research suggests that people adapt their own drinking behavior to that of others. Studies have shown that when being in the company of a heavy drinking peer, […] read more
