A driving force in the emergence of the Recovery movement has been the increasing sense of agency of people with mental illness in their own return to mental health. Peer worker programmes leverage individual experiences of successful recovery from mental illness to provide patients with exemplars to help them find their own paths back to health. The October podcast features Dr Frances Dark, Clinical Director of the Rehabilitation Academic Clinical Unit, Metro South Health, Brisbane, who talks about developing long-stay psychiatric rehabilitation services primarily staffed by peer workers. Dr Dark believes that peer workers should not displace allied health professionals in treating mental illness, but can complement their clinical skills, with powerful roles in promoting engagement, autonomy, and communication. While acknowledging the specific circumstances of peer workers, Dr Dark reports that in practice perceived problems such as the possibility of peer workers becoming mentally unwell are most appropriately handled using the same principles and mechanisms as with other health workers, particularly self-care, work-place flexibility, and professional responsibility.

The revolutionary impact of Freud’s empirically derived and intuitively developed psychoanalysis generally obscures his early attempts to ground his invention in a secure neuroscientific framework. In the June issue of the Australasian Psychiatry podcast I speak with Dr George Halasz, child psychiatrist, about how rapid advances in neuroscientific understanding over the last thirty years is starting to change psychoanalytic theory and practice. Using his background in trauma therapy as an example, Dr Halasz describes how an awareness of the dynamic systems within and between clinician and patient in therapy can improve outcomes and reduce conscious and unconscious distress for both parties.

Revalidation and continuing professional development

The RANZCP has recently adopted a more strategic approach to recognise and encourage leaders from within its fellowship, to ensure ongoing improvement in the management of mental health and general wellbeing in Australasia. In the October podcast, I speak with Associate Professor Greg De Moore of Westmead Hospital about his book “Finding Sanity: John Cade, lithium, and the taming of bipolar disorder”. Professor De Moore describes John Cade as the most influential psychiatrist in Australia’s history due to his role as the herald of the age of psychopharmacology. John Cade's demonstration that lithium could greatly improve the symptoms of patients with bipolar affective disorder was a necessary first step towards the end of the asylum system, as well as the development of more effective and humane alternatives for serious mental illness than older treatments such as psychosurgery, early electroconvulsive therapy, and psychoanalysis. Professor De Moore also discusses how the art of biography allows him to use the story of a fascinating life to reach beyond the academic psychiatric audience to engage the general population in a greater awareness of the history of psychiatry and the nature of mental illness.

In the August 2016 issue of the Australasian Psychiatry podcast, Dr Andrew Amos speaks with Professor Gordon Parker about his article on the clinical management of patients who are ultra-rapid metabolisers of antidepressant medications. Professor Parker starts with the premise that much of the heterogeneity of response to antidepressant medication is due to the poor reliability of diagnosis, and proposes that antidepressant medication is particularly indicated for patients with melancholic forms of depression. Professor Parker suggests we should be sensitive to the possibility of ultra-rapid metabolism in patients with melancholic depression who report no clinical benefit and no side effects of medication at higher doses, including in young patients experiencing their first episode. He describes his approach, which includes the use of tricyclic antidepressants both because of the existence of serum level assays, and for their greater efficacy in some patients with depression. Finally, Professor Parker discusses the use of stimulant medications and ketamine in patients with treatment-resistant depression, and issues a challenge to the profession to improve the evidence base for treatment-resistant depression and ultra-rapid metabolisers in particular.In the August 2016 issue of the Australasian Psychiatry podcast, Dr Andrew Amos speaks with Professor Gordon Parker about his article on the clinical management of patients who are ultra-rapid metabolisers of antidepressant medications.

Leadership and management in Australasian Psychiatry - the Australasian psychiatric fraternity has long provided leadership in understanding the mechanisms, treating the symptoms, and managing the problems associated with mental illness. An early innovator was John Cade, the Australian psychiatrist who first reported the mood stabilising properties of lithium in the late 1940s. The Australasian Psychiatry podcast has interviewed many psychiatric leaders active in our region, from Professor John McGrath constructing a self-perpetuating framework for performing clinical trials while training the next generation of psychiatrist scientists; to Professor Ernest Hunter’s inspiring endeavours to improve mental health care and training for indigenous people in remote Australia and the Pacific Islands; to President-elect of the World Psychiatric Association Helen Herrman’s ambitions to identify, develop, and disseminate knowledge and resources appropriate for improving mental health across all the diverse peoples of the world.

In a wide-ranging interview, Dr O’Connor discusses the need for a new generation of leaders among Australasian psychiatrists, and opportunities for psychiatrists and registrars such as the Leadership Workshops at the College Congress in Hong Kong in May this year. While acknowledging that not every psychiatrist would be interested in pursuing particular leadership roles such as College President, company CEO, or Clinical Director, Dr O’Connor describes the need for many different types of leader in modern mental health, from clinical leadership of individual treating teams, through academic leadership in research and training, to active liaison between the mental health system and other institutions such as government, business, and NGOs.

Most doctors derive their sense of worth and identity from meeting the intellectual, emotional, and professional challenges of their demanding but rewarding careers. Psychiatrists in particular rely upon the confidence of their patients to trust us with their intimate thoughts and emotions in pursuit of mental wellness. In the April 2016 Australasian Psychiatry podcast, Professor Carmelle Peisah explores adaptive and less adaptive means used by psychiatrists to manage anxiety about declining capacity as retirement approaches.

Professor Peisah draws upon the articles in the special April issue on successful ageing to illustrate the advantages of continual self-evaluation to allow for the early identification of problems and opportunities associated with changing capacities. The podcast and these eight articles convincingly demonstrate that the decision to retire is highly personalised and related to a considered balance between workload and resilience that changes over time.

In this podcast, Dr Sue Fletcher-Watson discusses with Laura Crane about her article Attitudes of the autism community to early autism research.


Australia is a wealthy, free, and harmoniously multicultural society, but our treatment of people who attempt to achieve asylum by arriving on Australian territory without permission has attracted international criticism and generated fierce domestic debate. The rapid change in boat arrivals associated with the imposition of stronger measures by the Liberal Government led by Tony Abbott in 2013, including offshore processing of claims for refugee status and turning back boats of asylum seekers in some circumstances, appears to have provided the Australian Federal Government with effective political cover, leaving the Opposition unwilling to raise strong moral or ethical objections.

 

Professor Louise Newman of Melbourne University is current Convenor of the Alliance of Health Professions for Asylum Seekers, and past chair of the Expert Health Advisory Group, which was responsible for providing advice to the Government on the health implications of the treatment of Asylum Seekers. In the February 2016 Australasian Psychiatry podcast Professor Newman addresses the professional, societal, and personal implications of mandatory detention. As an infant psychiatrist with expertise and a research history in attachment and trauma, she emphasises the deleterious impact on the mental health and development of young children, and discusses the moral dilemma facing clinicians including psychiatrists who face a double bind when they have to accept legal and practical constraints on their care and advocacy for detained asylum seekers as the cost of providing any care at all.

Heather Littleton talks to PWQ Editor Jan Yoder about her article, co-authored with Amie E. Grills-Taquechel, Katherine S. Buck, Lindsey Rosman, and Julia C. Dodd, 'Health Risk Behavior and Sexual Assault Among Ethnically Diverse Women' which was published in the March 2013 issue of Psychology of Women Quarterly.

 

Abstract:

Sexual assault is associated with a number of health risk behaviors in women. It has been hypothesized that these risk behaviors, such as hazardous drinking, may represent women’s attempts to cope with psychological distress, such as symptoms of depression and anxiety. However, extant research has failed to evaluate these relationships among ethnic minority samples or identify the mechanisms responsible for this association. The current study examined sexual assault history and two health risk behaviors (hazardous drinking and engaging in sexual behavior to regulate negative affect) in a diverse sample of 1,620 college women. Depression and anxiety were examined as mediators of the relationship between sexual assault and health risk behaviors. There was evidence of moderated mediation, such that for European American women, but not for ethnic minority women, both forms of psychological distress were significant mediators of the sexual assault/hazardous drinking relationship. In contrast, among all ethnic groups, the relationship between sexual assault and both forms of psychological distress was mediated by the use of sexual behavior as an affect regulation strategy. Results support a need to evaluate the assault experiences of ethnically diverse women, as well as the impact of the assault on their postassault experiences including health risk behaviors and psychological adjustment. Additionally, results suggest that practitioners should carefully assess health risk behaviors among victims of sexual assault and be aware that there may be differences in the risk factors and motives for these behaviors among women of various ethnic backgrounds.

In this podcast, Professor Herrman, President-elect of the World Psychiatric Association describes her vision of international cooperation to identify, develop, and disseminate knowledge and resources appropriate for improving mental health among the diverse range of people and situations across the world. Professor Herrman is particularly optimistic about the interchange of ideas, acknowledging the growing importance of psychiatry as it is practiced outside western democracies, in places as diverse as the Pacific Island nations, China and India. Professor Herrman argues that psychiatry need not be defensive, but can be confident enough to assert its central role within medical practice. She makes the important point that advocacy by patients, carers, and broader social groups all have a part to play in guiding policy makers’ decisions about resource allocation, in Australia and New Zealand as well as the rest of the world.

Alongside the recent move towards dimensional diagnosis of psychiatric illness, there appears to be a tendency to dismiss Bipolar Affective Disorder – Type II as merely a less severe form of Type I. In the April 2015 podcast of Australasian Psychiatry, Scientia Professor Gordon Parker of the Black Dog Institute argues that bipolar I and II are categorically distinct entities which share hypomanic/manic symptoms but which can be differentiated by the presence of psychotic symptoms only in type I illness.
