Streit und Beziehungsdramen - Symptom einer Traumafolgestörung? 30 bis 50 % aller Paare, die eine Paarberatung aufsuchen, hatten in der Kindheit traumatische Erlebnisse. Gleichzeitig kann man feststellen: In fast jeder Herkunftsfamilie mussten die eigenen Eltern grauenvolle Kriegserlebnisse bewältigen. Menschen, die in ihrer Kindheit traumatische Erfahrungen mit wichtigen Bezugspersonen machen mussten, tragen oftmals schlimme Beziehungswunden in sich. Missbrauch, Vernachlässigung, Misshandlung, Tod, Verlust, schwere Krankheiten, psychische Gewalt, Armut oder psychische Störungen der Eltern führen zu vielfältigen emotionalen Problemen. Die Wunden der Kindheit wirken auf die Paarbeziehung in Form von Streit, Dramen und sexuellen Konflikten. Es gibt kaum Anleitungen für die Behandlung traumatisierter Paare und ebenso keine Literatur zum Thema Paare und Trauma. Somit bricht dieses Buch mit einem Tabu und schließt eine Lücke. Es ist ein Praxisleitfaden mit etlichen Fallbeispielen.

In this sizzling companion to the critically acclaimed 738 Days, Stacey Kade once again creates a masterful combination of romance, angst, and thrills in the backdrop of a Hollywood film set. At twenty-two, Calista Beckett is trying to overcome her early fame and fortune. The former savior of the world on Starlight is now a freshman at college—miles away from L.A. and her former existence. She sees it as her start to a new life, a normal life, one where she won’t make the same mistakes she made before—a brush with heroin addiction and losing her freedom to her controlling mother, thanks to a court order. Eric Stone played her older brother, Byron, on Starlight. But she’s been in love with him pretty much since they kissed—her first kiss—while auditioning. When Eric shows up on campus out of the blue, Calista’s struck immediately by two things: first, in spite of everything that’s happened, she still feels something dangerous for him, and second, she’s absolutely determined not to let him ruin her life again. Only Eric’s not going away so easily. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Narratives We Organize by
Author: Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges, Pasquale Gagliardi
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
This book is a collection of texts that explore the analogy between organizing and narrating, between action and text. The raw material of everyday organizational life consists of disconnected fragments, physical and verbal actions that do not make sense when reported with simple chronology. Narrating is organizing this raw and fragmented material with the help of such devices as plot and characters. Simultaneously, organizing makes narration possible, because it orders people, things and events in time and place. The collection, written by organization researchers from many different countries, explores this analogy in both directions, reporting studies that show how narratives are made in situ, and applying narrative analysis (structuralist and poststructuralist) to stories already in existence. Barbara Czarniawska is Skandia Professor of Management Studies at GRI, School of Economics and Commercial Law, Göteborg University, Sweden. Pasquale Gagliardi is Professor of Sociology of Organization at the Catholic University of Milan, and Managing Director of ISTUD- Istituto Studi Direzionali, Milan-Stresa, Italy.

The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine
Author: Rita Charon, Sayantani DasGupta, Nellie Hermann, Craig Irvine, Eric R Marcus, Edgar Rivera Colsn, Danielle Spencer, Maura Spiegel
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Narrative medicine is a fresh discipline of health care that helps patients and health professionals to tell and listen to the complex and unique stories of illness. The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine expresses the collective experience and discoveries of the originators of the field. Arising at Columbia University in 2000 from roots in the humanities and patient-centered care, narrative medicine draws patients, doctors, nurses, therapists, and health activists together to re-imagine a health care based on trust and trustworthiness, humility, and mutual recognition. Over a decade of education and research has crystallized the goals and methods of narrative medicine, leading to increasingly powerful means to improve the care that patients receive. The methods described in this book harness creativity and insight to help the professionals in being with patients, not just to diagnose and treat them but to bear witness to what they undergo. Narrative medicine training in literary theory, philosophy, narrative ethics, and the creative arts increases clinicians' capacity to perceive the turmoil and suffering borne by patients and to help them to cohere or endure the chaos of illness. Narrative medicine has achieved an international reputation and reach. Many health care settings adopt methods of narrative medicine in teaching and practice. Through the Master of Science in Narrative Medicine graduate program and health professions school curricula at Columbia University, more and more clinicians and scholars have obtained the rigorous training necessary to practice and teach narrative medicine. This text is offered to all who seek the opportunity for disciplined training in narrative medicine. By clearly articulating our principles and practice, this book provides the standards of the field for those who want to join us in seeking authenticity, recognition, affiliation, and justice in a narrative health care.
This book is a comprehensive exposition of the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories in both editions of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.
This collection of essays examines the various dynamic processes by which texts are preserved, transmitted, and modified in medieval multi-text codices, focusing on the meanings generated by new contexts and the possible reader experiences provoked by novel configurations and material presentation. Containing essays on text collections from many different European countries and in a wide range of medieval languages, this volume sheds new light on common trends and regional differences in the history of book production and reading practices.
Presenting a comprehensive portrayal of the reading of Chinese and Buddhist philosophy in early twentieth-century German thought, Chinese and Buddhist Philosophy in early Twentieth-Century German Thought examines the implications of these readings for contemporary issues in comparative and intercultural philosophy. Through a series of case studies from the late 19th-century and early 20th-century, Eric Nelson focuses on the reception and uses of Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism in German philosophy, covering figures as diverse as Buber, Heidegger, and Misch. He argues that the growing intertextuality between traditions cannot be appropriately interpreted through notions of exclusive identities, closed horizons, or unitary traditions. Providing an account of the context, motivations, and hermeneutical strategies of early twentieth-century European thinkers' interpretation of Asian philosophy, Nelson also throws new light on the question of the relation between Heidegger and Asian philosophy. Reflecting the growing interest in the possibility of intercultural and global philosophy, Chinese and Buddhist Philosophy in early Twentieth-Century German Thought opens up the possibility of a more inclusive intercultural conception of philosophy.
Stress and Anxiety
Author: Kathleen A. Moore, Petra Buchwald
Publisher: Logos Verlag Berlin GmbH
We present this collection of peer-reviewed papers covering a contemporary exploration of old and new concepts in the area of stress, anxiety, and coping. The papers include a consideration of the age-old questions concerning maths and test anxiety and the factors which predict or mediate these to a theoretical discussion of what is stress and how do we measure it. Several papers focus on stress and coping in applied settings, such as among patients with chronic disease, panic disorder, and also in those who play sport. Further papers are devoted to stress and coping in educational and academic settings and examine factors which contribute to students' learning as well as those which influence teachers' occupational stress. The recent emphasis by positive psychologists on resilience as well as coping has also featured here with chapters looking at their contributions to psychological health. However, the question is posed as to whether resilience and coping are cut from the same cloth.
Does Wittgenstein's method of analysis rest on the distinction between internal and external relations? Approaching Wittgenstein's writings from a new perspective, Wittgenstein on Internal and External Relations focuses on how Wittgenstein distinguishes between relations that are grounded in the nature of their related terms, internal, and those which belong to them accidentally, external. This original approach reveals the difference to be one of the most fundamental distinctions that Wittgenstein drew in his writings. Working chronologically, it summarizes the philosophical background against which the distinction emerged, addressing Hegel, Bradley, Russell and Moore. Dealing with Wittgenstein's early and later writings, it distils definitions of the notions of internal and external relations and offers its applications, before concluding with the rationale for Wittgenstein's method of analysis. Making a valuable contribution to Wittgenstein scholarship, Wittgenstein on Internal and External Relations presents significant new insights into his relationship with Russell and Moore and shows how internal and external relations inform his entire philosophical approach.
