The study aimed to assess the relationship between

mental disorders symptomswithpain coping strategies indentistry



One hundred and twenty people with dental pain

that attended in dentistry clinics were randomly selected and

responded to Rosenstein and Keefe’s Pain Coping Strategies Ques-

tionnaire (PCSQ) and Derogatis’s Symptom Checklist (SCL-90-R).

PCSQ assesses six pain coping strategies: diverting attention,

reinterpretation pain sensation, self-negotiation, ignoring pain,

disastrous thought, hope–praying, and SCL-90 measures nine

dimensions: somatization, obsessive compulsive, interpersonal

sensitivity, depression, anxiety, hostility, phobic anxiety, paranoid

ideation, and psychoticism. The data were analysed with Pearson

correlation coefficient and independent




Findings showed positive and significant relationship

between disastrous thought with all mental disorders symptoms;

and reinterpretation pain sensation with depression and anxiety.

Also there is negative significant relationship between ignor-

ing pain with obsessive compulsive, interpersonal sensitivity and

somatization; and hope – praying with interpersonal sensitivity,

depression, anxiety, paranoid ideation and psychoticism. Mean-

while there were significant differences in males and females.

Females got more scores in ignoring pain thanmales, andmales got

more scores in anxiety, hostility and paranoid ideation tan females.


With regard to findings, it is recommended that in

addition to drug treatment, for changing the attitudes and thinking

in patients with dental pain, psychiatrists and psychologists apply

psychological treatments specially cognitive-behavior therapy to

reduce abnormal thinking level about pain so that the length dur-

ing of treatment declines, and as a results reduce the personality

and health problems that is related with dental pain before and in

during of drug treatment.

The work describes a successful experience in the

utilization of art as a tool to work the prevention of the use of

drugs. The experience was developed with children and adoles-

cents between the ages of 3 and 17 who reside in a risky area near

Latin America’s biggest dump, located in the city of Taguatinga, FD,



Create a therapeutic space to make possible the dia-

log with the children and adolescents, promoting the prevention

and the consciousness about the harm of the use of psychoac-

tive substances, providing clarification on the theme, through art,

being the use of formal language and terms, like “illicit drugs”,



The children, who participated in the project, used, as

expression tool, several painting items. The public was divided by

age in two groups: the children received ludic approach, allowing

the team nearness and interaction with them, in such a way that

the former transmitted information and guidance about the harm

on the use of psychoactive substances.


The results were satisfactory. All the children and ado-

lescents involved in the project demonstrated adhesion to the use

of the offered tools and established a communication link, which

allowed the receptivity of information about prevention in the use

of psychoactive substances.


Through the developed activities, it was observed

that the strategy utilization of art as a language had better effiency

than a formal approach since the children and adolescents could

have a learning space in a spontaneous way, demonstrating inter-

neurocognitive functioning and

metabolic syndrome (MetS)

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) parameters are: ele-

vated waist circumference (WC), triglycerides (TG), fasting glucose

(FBG) and blood pressure (BP) and reduced high-density lipopro-

tein cholesterol (HDL). MetS parameters are associated with poor

cognition and this association should be studied in the context of

other factors. In particular, factors that are involved in maintaining

poor lifestyle choices – MetS is largely a lifestyle illness. One factor

important to consider is cognitive insight – an individual’s ability

to be flexible in how you think about yourself and others and to

question your own thoughts.


To conduct an exploratory cross-sectional study

investigating the influence of cognitive insight on the relation-

ship between MetS parameters and cognition in non-psychiatric



To explore the nature of the relationship between cognition

andMetS parameters and test whether cognitive insight moderates

the association.


Our sample consisted of


= 156 participants with

mixed-ancestry. Correlations between MetS parameters and cog-

nition were tested. ANOVA was used to test interaction effects and

logistic regressionwas done to test the predictive power of selected



BP correlated with attention, delayed memory, and

RBANS total scale score. The BCIS self-certainty subscalemoderated

the relationship between BP and immediatememory and attention.

Age and BCIS self-certainty were the only predictors of elevated BP.
