Akathisia is probably the most common and one of

the most distressing of the movement disorders associated with

antipsychotic drugs. Little is known about its prevalence and its

risk factors in real-world psychotic and bipolar patients to date.


The main objective of this study was to determine the

prevalence of akathisia and to determine the risk factors and the

treatments associated with it in a sample of Tunisian patients with

schizophrenia, schizoaffective or bipolar disorder.


Seventy-four patients with schizophrenia, schizoaffec-

tive or bipolar disorder were included and assessedwith a validated

scale: the Barnes Akathisia scale (BAS). Ongoing psychotropic treat-

ments were recorded.


The global prevalence of akathisia (as defined by a


2 on the global akathisia subscale of the BAS) was 20.5%.

Akathisia was significantly more common in patients with schizo-

phrenia or schizoaffective disorder than in patients with Bipolar

disorder (27.5% vs 9.4%;


= 0.049). However, the prevalence of

akathisia did not differ according to sex, age, the illness dura-

tion, the presence of a comorbid anxiety disorder, the number of

antipsychotics used, the type of the used antipsychotic (first vs

second-generation), the antipsychotic chlorpromazine-equivalent

total dosage, the use of benzodiazepines or anticholinergics, or the

reported drug compliance.


Akathisia seems to be more common in some

psychiatric disorders than in others such as schizophrenia or schi-

zoaffective disorder. Longitudinal studies would be required to

draw any firm conclusions concerning the factors involved in the

emergence of akathisia.

The aim of this study was to investigate the moderating

role of emotional regulation and mindfulness in the relationship

between parenting stress and styles with coping strategies.


Themethod in this study is correlation. Statistical popu-

lation consists of all adolescents in 2016, from among which 400

individuals were selected in a multi-stage cluster samplingmethod

from different areas of Tehran and completed Adolescent Coping

Scales, Parenting Stress Index, Baumrind parenting styles Inven-

tory, emotional regulation checklist of kids and adolescents and of

kids’ and adolescents’ mindfulness measurement. The data were

analyzed using multivariate regression and Pearson correlation in



The results showed themindfulness and emotional regu-

lation play amoderating role in the relationship between parenting

stress and coping strategies (


> 0.0001) as well as the relationship

between parenting styles and coping strategies (


> 0.0001).


Despite the poor parenting stress and parenting

styles, if the adolescents have emotion regulation and mindfulness

skills can reduce the negative effects of inappropriate parenting.

From Hampstead to Norwich: Ritual

violence or coaching?

R. Kurz

Cubiks, IPT, Guildford, United Kingdom


Video-recorded disclosures of two siblings emerged

describing ritual violence activities in a Hampstead “cult” including

human sacrifice murder. The UK court processes judged that the

mother “coached” the children to make false allegations. In paral-

lel, Marie Black, Jason Adams and Michael Roger were found guilty

of child sexual abuse purely based on historical accounts of five



The presentation outlines two cases that illustrate the

“unbelievable” nature of organized child abuse and what aspects

make court rulings “unsafe”.


The presentation aims to compare the Hampstead where

the videos were watched by 4 million individuals world-wide with

the little that is known about the “Norwich Three” case due to court

reporting restrictions.


Materials posted on websites, books and videos were

reviewed alongside discussionswithwhistle-blowers, relatives and

friends of people involved.


The disclosures in theHampstead casewere very extreme

but similar accounts can be found in books by Sara Scott (UK) andDe

Camp (US). Those accused of sexual abuse claim that the children

have been coached by their mother to make these allegations–the

view that the judge adopted. In the Norfolk case, 7 of the 10 defen-

dants were cleared of child sexual abuse allegations but three

individuals were found guilty. It remains unclear what the basis

was for the conviction as the disclosures could have been classed

as the result of “coaching”.


Anyone operating in forensic settings should fami-

liarise themselves with the “hall of mirrors” that cases involving

child sexual abuse routinely constitute.

The screen for cognitive impairment in psychiatry

(SCIP) is a brief, accessible scale designed for detecting cognitive

deficits in psychiatric disorders.


The objective of this study is to test the SCIP’s validity

as a cognitive test by comparisonwith standard neuropsychological

scale using the Pearson’s correlation.

Aims Test the convergent and discriminant validity of the SCIP

within the Italian SCIP validation project.
