Schematherapie ist eine wichtige aktuelle Weiterentwicklung der kognitiven Verhaltenstherapie (KVT) für Patienten mit Persönlichkeitsstörungen und anderen chronischen psychischen Problemen. In Studien hat sich insbesondere die Arbeit mit dem Schemamodus-Ansatz als hoch wirksam erwiesen. In diesem Buch wird die Behandlung mit dem Modusmodell praxisnah dargestellt. Zahlreiche Fallbeispiele illustrieren das Vorgehen. Nach einer kurzen Einführung in die Kernkonzepte der Schematherapie wird auf die Diagnostik und Fallkonzeptualisierung eingegangen. Im Anschluss wird das therapeutische Vorgehen für jeden Modus-Typ erläutert. Wichtige Schwerpunkte bilden dabei die therapeutische Beziehung, die als begrenztes Nachbeeltern konzipiert ist, sowie emotionsfokussierende Techniken, wie z.B. Stuhldialoge und imaginative Techniken. In diesen beiden Punkten unterscheidet sich die Schematherapie besonders von der klassischen KVT. Typische Fallstricke und Probleme in einer Schematherapie sowie mögliche Variationen des Vorgehens werden ebenfalls beschrieben. Insgesamt bietet der Band eine kompakte Darstellung der Arbeit mit dem Schemamodus-Ansatz bei Persönlichkeitsstörungen.

This volume combines the classical fields of perception research with the major theoretical attitudes of today's research, distinguishing between experience- versus performance-related approaches, transformational versus interactional approaches, and approaches that rely on the processing versus discovery of information. Perception is separated into two parts. The first part deals with basic processes and mechanisms, and discusses early vision and later, yet still basic, vision. The second covers complex achievements with accounts of perceptual constancies and the perception of patterns, objects, events, and actions. Gives an overview of the current status of research in classical areas and of current approaches to perception Covers research areas and theoretical approaches Combines American and European research Emphasizes complex achievements of perception: auditory patterns, object identification, event perception, and perception of action
Oedipus and the Oedipus Complex
Author: Siegfried Zepf, Florian Daniel Zepf, Burkhard Ullrich, Dietmar Seel
Publisher: Karnac Books
In contemporary psychoanalytic thought, Freud’s concept of the Oedipus complex is inclined to overshadow the interpretation of the myths surrounding Oedipus. The authors counter this situation by reversing it, utilizing the Oedipus myths to interpret the Oedipus complex. In so doing they expose it as a sheer cover story. They unmask the Oedipus complex, revealing it to be a drama staged not by Oedipus but by Jocasta, the mother, and Laius, the father. For neither Sophocles’ drama nor the Oedipus myths give any indication that Oedipus is enamoured of Jocasta and born with the intention of killing his father Laius. What the myths do mention are Jocaste’s passion for Oedipus whom she loves more than his father and Laius’ desire to eliminate Oedipus as his rival from birth. Freud neglected these aspects of the Oedipal myths. In uncovering them the authors come to the conclusion that Oedipus did not have an Oedipus complex. The myths divulge that it is not the son or the daughter who precipitate rivalry with their father or mother but the parents who unconsciously compete with their child for the love of their partner.

Schema Therapy combines proven cognitive behavioral therapy techniques with elements of interpersonal, experiential, and psychodynamic therapies in order to help people with long-term mental health problems including personality disorders and chronic depression. Schema Therapy suggests that many negative cognitive conditions are based on past experiences, and therefore provides models for challenging and modifying negative thoughts and behaviors in order to provoke change. In this book, Eshkol Rafaeli, David P. Bernstein and Jeffrey Young – pioneers of the Schema Therapy approach – indicate the 30 distinctive features of Schema Therapy, and how the method fits into the broader CBT spectrum. Divided into two parts, Theoretical Points and Practical Points, this book provides a concise introduction for those new to the technique, as well as a discussion of how it differs from the other cognitive behavioral therapies for those experienced in the field.

Author: Wilfred R. Bion
Publisher: Karnac Books
Cogitations, the last of the posthumous publications, is a collection of occasional writings representing Bion's attempts to clarify and evaluate both his own ideas and those of others by casting them in written form and frequently addressing them to an imaginary audience. Covering a period between February 1958 and April 1979, Cogitations delves into a wide range of material - psychoanalysis and science, mathematics and logic, literature and semantics. Some form a background to Bion's theoretical development, showing the doubts and arguments leading to the ideas expressed in his books, others highlighting and detailing some of the more abstract points in them, and some exploring topics destined for books that were to remain unwritten.

Neuropsychotherapy is intended to inspire further development and continual empirical updating of consistency theory. It is essential for psychotherapists, psychotherapy researchers, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, and mental-health professionals. Profoundly important and innovative, this volume provides necessary know-how for professionals as it connects the findings of modern neuroscience to the insights of psychotherapy. Throughout the book, a new picture unfolds of the empirical grounds of effective psychotherapeutic work. Author Klaus Grawe articulates a comprehensive model of psychological functioning-consistency theory-and bridges the gap between the neurosciences and the understanding of psychological disorders and their treatment. Neuropsychotherapy illustrates that psychotherapy can be even more effective when it is grounded in a neuroscientific approach. Cutting across disciplines that are characteristically disparate, the book identifies the neural foundations of various disorders, suggests specific psychotherapeutic conclusions, and makes neuroscientific knowledge more accessible to psychotherapists. The book's discussion of consistency theory reveals the model is firmly connected to other psychological theoretical approaches, from control theory to cognitive-behavioral models to basic need theories.
Culture and diversity are both challenge and opportunity. This volume looks at what psychologists are and can be doing to help society meet the challenges and grasp the opportunities in education, at work, and in clinical practice. The increasingly international and globalized nature of modern societies means that psychologists in particular face new challenges and have new opportunities in all areas of practice and research. The contributions from leading European experts cover relevant intercultural issues and topics in areas as diverse as personality, education and training, work and organizational psychology, clinical and counselling psychology, migration, and international youth exchanges. As well as looking at the new challenges and opportunities that psychologists face in dealing with people from increasingly varied cultural backgrounds, perhaps more importantly they also explain and discuss how psychologists can deepen and acquire the intercultural competencies that are now needed in our professional lives.
