230. A meta-analytic review of laboratory studies testing the alcohol stress response dampening hypothesis. (Abstract)

A meta-analytic review of laboratory studies testing the alcohol stress response dampening hypothesis. Decades of research have tested the hypothesis that alcohol consumption buffers against the effects of stress. Despite this large body of literature, the evidence from carefully controlled laboratory studies in which alcohol is administered and negative affect is measured in response to a stressor is mixed. The goal of the current meta-analysis was to quantitatively summarize laboratory (...) studies of alcohol's stress response dampening effects and test theoretical and methodological factors that explain variation in effect sizes across studies. A literature search identified 52 studies that administered alcohol and measured negative affect, as defined by self-report and/or psychophysiological response to a stressor. The results showed post-stressor negative affect was significantly lower in the alcohol condition compared to the control conditions (placebo and control), d = -.38, 95% CI

232. Can Schools Reduce Adolescent Psychological Stress? A Multilevel Meta-Analysis of the Effectiveness of School-Based Intervention Programs. (Full text)

Can Schools Reduce Adolescent Psychological Stress? A Multilevel Meta-Analysis of the Effectiveness of School-Based Intervention Programs. Increased levels of psychological stress during adolescence have been associated with a decline in academic performance, school dropout and increased risk of mental health problems. Intervening during this developmental period may prevent these problems. The school environment seems particularly suitable for interventions and over the past decade, various (...) school-based stress reduction programs have been developed. The present study aims to evaluate the results of (quasi-)experimental studies on the effectiveness of school-based intervention programs targeting adolescent psychological stress and to investigate moderators of effectiveness. A three-level random effects meta-analytic model was conducted. The search resulted in the inclusion of k = 54 studies, reporting on analyses in 61 independent samples, yielding 123 effect sizes (N = 16,475

235. Systematic review and meta-analysis on the relationship between prenatal stress and metabolic syndrome intermediate phenotypes. (Full text)

Systematic review and meta-analysis on the relationship between prenatal stress and metabolic syndrome intermediate phenotypes. Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) can be considered as a consequence of a complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors and can be influenced by changes in the environment early in life. Prenatal stress (PS) exposure likely represents an important adverse intrauterine environment that may impact the biology of the developing organism. The aim of this study (...) effect sizes from 19 studies together with relevant moderators were collected. Summary estimates were calculated by using random-effects model.The combined standardized mean difference (d) for the relation between BMI and PS indicated that despite significant heterogeneity, stress exposure of expectant mothers was associated with increased BMI of their offspring [d (95% CI) = 0.268 (0.191; 0.345)]. Both objective and subjective stress have been linked to increased overweight. Preliminary results

236. Systematic Review of the Effects of Skin-to-Skin Care on Short-Term Physiologic Stress Outcomes in Preterm Infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. (Abstract)

Systematic Review of the Effects of Skin-to-Skin Care on Short-Term Physiologic Stress Outcomes in Preterm Infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) are exposed to many stressors. There is growing evidence that chronic stress early in life has long-term neurodevelopmental implications.
