Childhood trauma can be classified in different categories: Emotional abuse refers to verbal aggression, humiliation or degradation by an adult person. Physical aggression or violation stands for physical abuse. Sexual abuse is defined as sexual contact between the child and an older person. Besides these three categories of abuse, two further categories of childhood neglect exist: ‘ Emotional neglect refers to the failure of caretakers to provide a child’s basic psychological and emotional needs […]’ ( Bernstein and Fink 1998 ). The failure of caregivers to provide

, quality and outcome, as this would reduce the number of papers considerably and would, therefore, have restricted the current already limited overview on the effects of Ramadan on mental health. Results Table 1 gives the results of paper selection and data extraction. The literature in relation to the effects of Ramadan on mental health is limited to a few areas: that is, effects in the general population and healthy volunteers (7 papers), in sports (3 papers), on eating and eating disorders (3 papers), on severe physical disorders (3 papers) and on mental

monsoon climate ( Yeasmin & Islam, 2011 ). As a result, river bank erosion is one of the major devastating ongoing natural disaster for the country ( Islam & Rashid, 2011 ). Large number of people in this region live along the rivers and are more likely to be affected by bank erosion ( Das et al., 2017 ). The affected people face displacement, economic loss, physical and psychosocial problems that shift them in economic downwards. All these stressors put their coping capacity and mental health in a stressful condition and the insufficient coping behaviour under chronic

( Vuilleumier & Pourtois, 2007 ). Deficits in FER and executive control could thus be associated also in EDs. Consistently, determining whether the impairment in EDs is cognitive-affective may have key therapeutic implications, as these require different intervention strategies ( Legenbauer, Vocks, & Rüddel, 2008 ). It might well be that, also in people with EDs, set-shifting and FER are jointly compromised, at least as regards the impairment of certain emotions. Nonetheless, to our knowledge, no empirical research exists, explicitly addressing this issue. We thus tested the

Unlike the first two categories, chronic stress is not exciting but can destroy bodies, minds and lives; can affect people of all ages and genders and can lead not only to physical but also to psychological health problems ( Anderson, 1998 ). Chronic stress can be defined as the response to emotional pressure experienced for a prolonged period of time, when the individuals have the feeling of having little or no

Joining Medical College where Armed Forces discipline prevailed with uniforms, parades, and training in rifle shooting was an interesting experience as was the language. English was the medium of instruction, and I had to polish my language. Another factor was the use of Marathi, which was the local language, so learning Marathi to communicate with patients was important. There were 3 parts of MBBS each with 3

readers differentiate the terms as they apply in alcohol studies. Firstly, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015–2020 define moderate alcohol consumption as a form of drinking that is up to one or less drinks per day for women and up to two or less drinks per day for men.

Harmful alcohol use, on the other hand, is alcohol consumption that results in consequences to physical and mental health, and is characterised by
