  • PLS Title Deployment to military operations negatively affects the mental health functioning of deployed military personnel
  • PLS Description When military personnel are deployed to military operations abroad they face an increased risk of physical harm, and an increased risk of adverse shocks to their mental health. The primary condition under consideration is deployment to an international military operation. Deployment to a military operation is not a uniform condition; rather, it covers a range of scenarios. Military deployment is defined as performing military service in an operation at a location outside the home country for a limited time period, pursuant to orders. The review included studies that reported outcomes for individuals who had been deployed. This review looked at the effect of deployment on mental health outcomes. The mental health outcomes are: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depressive disorder (MDD), common mental disorders (depression, anxiety and somatisation disorders) and substance-related disorders. By identifying the major effects of deployment on mental health and quantifying these effects, the review can inform policy development on deployment and military activity as well as post-deployment support for veterans. In this way the review enables decision-makers to prioritise key areas.

  • PLS Title Reducing the maximum duration of unemployment benefits increases the job finding rate of the unemployed
  • PLS Description Policymakers may wish to reduce the generosity of the unemployment benefits system in order to reduce unemployment levels. Reducing benefit levels may be politically more difficult than shortening the length of the unemployment benefit eligibility period to create work incentives for the unemployed. This review summarizes studies that measure the effects of shortening the maximum duration of unemployment benefit entitlement on job finding rates.

  • Title Effect of early, brief computerized interventions on risky alcohol and cannabis use among young people
  • Spanish PLS Las intervenciones puntuales automatizadas parecen disminuir el riesgo de alcoholismo entre los jóvenes; pero no existe evidencia sobre los efectos producidos en el consumo de cannabis
  • Spanish PLS Description El consumo excesivo de alcohol y de drogas para fines recreativos entre los jóvenes es una importante preocupación de salud pública, que debiera abordarse con intervenciones eficaces que brinden ayuda y orientación. Una intervención puntual automatizada es cualquier clase de actividad preventiva o terapéutica ofrecida a través de medios electrónicos conectados o no conectados a Internet, tales como teléfonos móviles, y que se desarrolla dentro de la hora siguiente o, incluso, tras escasos minutos de ocurrido el abuso de la sustancia. Tales intervenciones buscan disminuir el consumo excesivo de drogas y de alcohol en líneas generales. Esta revisión evalúa las investigaciones realizadas sobre la efectividad de intervenciones puntuales automatizadas y oportunas en cuanto al consumo de alcohol y de cannabis por parte de jóvenes que abusan de uno de ellos o de ambos.

  • Spanish PLS Description Junto con la diversidad de aplicaciones y hallazgos positivos provenientes del uso de la Atención Integral (MBI) en adultos, así como su popularidad creciente con el público general, las MBI han estado utilizándose cada vez más con la juventud. En los últimos años, las MBI han sido objeto de un creciente interés para su uso en las escuelas, con el objetivo de apoyar el desarrollo socioemocional y mejorar la conducta y el rendimiento académico. Esta revisión examina los efectos de las MBI escolares en los resultados cognitivos, conductuales, socioemocionales y el rendimiento académico de jóvenes de educación primaria o secundaria. Las MBI son intervenciones que utilizan un componente de atención integral, definido de forma amplia como “prestar atención de una manera particular: con propósito, en el presente, sin prejuicios”, a menudo junto a otros componentes, como el yoga, estrategias cognitivo-conductuales o entrenamiento en técnicas de relajación.

Puede llevarse a cabo en la comunidad, en un refugio, o como parte del cuidado prenatal o de otro tipo de atención de salud, y varía en intensidad de menos de una hora a 80 horas. Las actividades de apoyo pueden contribuir a reducir el abuso, a empoderar a las mujeres para mejorar su situación al brindar asesoramiento y apoyo informal para la planificación de seguridad y para incrementar el acceso a diferentes servicios.
