NEWSPAPERS ARE BACK AT THE MATER LIBRARY!
With more and more content from news services disappearing behind paywalls, the Library has decided to subscribe to print copies of both the Newcastle and Sydney Morning Herald.
We hope that you might enjoy visiting us and perusing the papers when you get a chance.
Feel free to bring your morning, afternoon tea or lunch with you.

INVESTIGATING THE MODEL OF COMMUNITY-BASED
CASE MANAGEMENT IN THE NSW BRAIN INJURY
All clinicians (n=72) providing case management within 14 Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program (BIRP) community rehabilitation teams in NSW completed a 3-part survey investigating their organizational context, clinical approach, and case management (CM) interventions. Participants were from 12 adult and 2 pediatric services (8 located in metropolitan areas, 6 in rural areas). All services provided a direct service model of CM. The underlying principles were uniform across services. CM interventions included the provision of individual support, family support, advocacy, and community development alongside assessment, monitoring, referral, and liaison tasks. There were little differences in practice based on age (adult vs pediatric) and location (metropolitan vs rural)

SPECIALIZED PSYCHOTHERAPIES FOR ADULTS WITH BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) affects up to 2% of the population and is associated with poor functioning, low quality of life and increased mortality. The aim of this systematic review was to investigate whether specialized psychotherapies (dialectical behavior therapy, mentalization-based treatment, transference-focused therapy and schema therapy) were more effective than nonspecialized approaches (protocolized psychological treatment, general psychiatric management) for BPD. A total of 20 studies with 1375 participants were included. They found moderate quality evidence that specialized psychotherapies are effective in reducing overall BPD severity. However, further research should identify which patient groups profit most from the specialized therapies.
