Neben dem Grundlagenband des Lehrbuchs der psychoanalytischen Therapie dient Band 2 der Praxis. Der Leser kann hier Einblicke in die psychoanalytische Sprechstunde gewinnen und sich mit speziellen behandlungstechnischen Problemen vertraut machen. Die Beschreibungen prägnanter Übertragungs-, Gegenübertragungs- und Widerstandsprozesse stammen aus den Analysen von 37 Patienten, die an einer Vielzahl seelischer und psychosomatischer Erkrankungen unterschiedlicher Schwere gelitten haben. Es werden Krankengeschichten und Behandlungsberichte vorgelegt, die während eines Zeitraumes von mehr als drei Jahrzehnten entstanden sind. Die Wirksamkeit psychoanalytischer Therapien konnte somit in vielen Fällen langfristig katamnestisch überprüft werden. Neben der genauen Wiedergabe therapeutischer Dialoge stützen sich die kasuistischen Illustrationen auch auf traditionelle Protokollierungen und zusammenfassende Beschreibungen von Behandlungsverläufen. Ungewöhnlich ist die Bereitschaft der behandelnden Analytiker, ihr therapeutisches Denken und Handeln offenzulegen. Stellungnahmen von Patienten bilden einen wichtigen Bestandteil der Diskussion der Behandlungsergebnisse. Probleme der allgemeinen und speziellen psychoanalytischen Krankheitslehre werden im Anschluß an die Fallbeispiele erörtert.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Angst ist ein Gefühlszustand, der gekennzeichnet ist durch negative Emotionen und körperliche Symptome von Anspannung. Der Begriff Angst leitet sich von dem lateinischen Wort „anxius“ ab und definiert einen Zustand von Erregung und Belastung.“ (ESSAU, Cecilia A., 2003) In der Wissenschaft wird die Angst in ihrer Ursache und Wirkung, sowohl gegenwärtig als auch zukunftsorientiert als eine komplexe Erfahrung verstanden. Sie äußert sich körperlich, kognitiv und im Verhalten. Angststörungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen sind ernstzunehmende Störungen. Es gibt unterschiedliche Risikofaktoren auf der familiären Ebene, der kognitiven Ebene und im Bereich unterschiedlicher Lebensereignisse. Mit Lebensereignissen sind Augenblicke gemeint, in denen das Kind oder der Jugendliche eine extreme negative Erfahrung gemacht hat. Aufgrund dieser unterschiedlichsten Risikofaktoren gilt es als Lehrer, eine Sensibilität für Symptome möglicher Angstreaktionen zu entwickeln. Kinder werden ihre Gefühle je nach Alter direkt oder indirekt beschreiben können. In jedem Fall gilt es, Beobachtungen mit den Eltern bzw. anderen Lehrern abzugleichen und eventuell einen Therapeuten zur Behandlung aufzusuchen. Durch die Klassifikationsmöglichkeiten nach DSM-III und ICD-10 ist es heute möglich, nach einer genauen Diagnose und einer dazu passenden Behandlung weitere Folgen und eine Verfestigung der jeweiligen Angststörung zu verhindern.

Mental Health Nursing Carewas written to provide a broad fundamental knowledge base for LPN/LVN students that is interesting and engaging to read, and readily applicable to nursing practice. Our teaching philosophy is that learning is maximized when the teacher is enthusiastic about the subject; the material is presented in a clear and appealing style; and the concepts are relevant to real application. The learner must be willing to participate in the learning process. Learning is participative. This book is written as psychosocial nursing is really practiced: with intelligence, empathy, caring, and based on evidence. It is above all practical, with strategies that students can actually use to promote the health, well-being, and empowerment of their clients. The major curriculum concepts are: Mental health The biopsychosocial nature of mental disorders Insight development and mental health promotion for nursing students The nursing process (a part of which is critical thinking) Care of diverse clients (across ages, genders, and cultures) Client and nurse empowerment Collaborative care with other members of the health-care team Psychosocial nursing as a component of general nursing practice, as well as in the psychiatric setting The writing style is deliberately personal for the purpose of making this complicated and fascinating subject engaging and easy to understand. It is clear without oversimplification or disrespect to the subject or the student. The style, organization, and pedagogy are chosen with adult learning principles in mind. We wrote this book with the knowledge that the majority of nurses do not practice in the psychiatric nursing specialty. Promoting mental health and working with clients with mental disorders and psychosocial issues are part of the nursing role in every practice setting. We teach students to practice psychosocial nursing with diverse clients in a variety of settings. We bring in case studies and quotes from clients in their own words to help students who do not have psychiatric nursing clinical opportunities to develop empathy for our clients. The authors bring their enthusiasm and experience in teaching psychiatric mental health nursing to this book. We teach the theory and practice of psychiatric nursing to diverse nursing students. The needs of students who speak English as a nonnative language, immigrant students, and other nontraditional students were considered in the writing of this book. Advocacy for people who have mental disorders and their families is an important aspect of the book as well. We are committed to psychiatric nursing education, and to helping you teach your students. Organization UNIT 1:Foundations of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursingprovides a basis for understanding the fundamentals on which psychiatric nursing is built. Personality development is discussed as a psychosocial basis for mental disorders. Various personality theories are presented as the basis for the various therapeutic approaches to disorders of thinking, feeling, and behavior. Mental health and mental illness are covered, as well as the stigma of mental illness in our culture. Practical strategies for mental-health promotion are included. Stress management is presented as it relates to clients and nurses. UNIT 2:Psychiatric Mental Health Nursingencourages the mentally healthy practice of nursing. The nurse-client relationship is presented as the foundation of nursing practice. Ethical and legal aspects of psychiatric nursing are covered in this unit. The importance of client advocacy is emphasized. The biological basis for mental disorders is discussed. Psychopharmacology is given its rightful place as a major cornerstone of psychiatric nursing, but not the only cornerstone. UNIT 3:Nursing Care of Clients with Mental Disorderscovers specific biological and clinical information about the major mental illnesses included in the DSM-IV-TR. Biological and psychosocial issues are the foundation for nursing goals and interventions. The nursing process provides the format for nursing practice. Medication management, collaboration with other health professionals, and client empowerment are integral parts. UNIT 4:Nursing Care of Clients with Disorders Related to Developmentincludes disorders of children, adolescents, and the elderly. Dementia and cognitive disorders are covered extensively because of their importance in nursing practice. Eating disorders are also presented here. UNIT 5:Special Topics in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursingincludes the timely topics of violence and abuse, as well as psychosocial issues for general client care. The final chapter takes psychosocial nursing to every client and presents realistic strategies for managing the care of "difficult" clients in general nursing practice. Each chapter begins withSharing Experiences,that provide words of wisdom from the lived experiences of those who have been touched by mental illness.Learning Outcomesmap the direction and goals of each chapter. Key Termsare defined in each chapter when they are first used. They are also included in an audio glossary on the Companion Website and Student CDROM, in which the words are spoken aloud to provide guidance for pronunciation.Key Pointssummarize the vital points in each chapter that will continue to be important for years to come. The clinical chapters end withCritical Thinking Care Mapsthat provide brief case studies, assessment data, and a nursing diagnosis. The student sorts the data, chooses from interventions provided, evaluates the outcomes, and charts the results. A built-in study guide concludes each chapter. The study guides have NCLEX-style questions, learning activities, and aFor Further Studyfeature. This is a handy list of cross-references within the book to facilitate locating related topics.EXPLORE MediaLinkcalls attention to additional interactive learning activities on the Companion Website and CD-ROM. Features Features are basedon adult learning principles. TheLearning About You!feature captures students' interest and applies their learning to their own lives.

Nursing Process Care Plansillustrate realistic situations and engage students in problem solving and application of their new knowledge. Culture Careboxes highlight transcultural nursing issues. Reality Checkboxes present experiences of real people with mental illnesses in their own words. Client Empowerment Plans,unique to our book, combine teaching and empowerment strategies for clients with selected mental disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, generalized anxiety, and families of patients with cognitive impairment). These empowerment plans are formatted with the thought of duplication for client-teaching purposes. They include client and family teaching, collaboration with care providers, problem-solving and coping strategies, and self-advocacy.

Most importantly, we think you will learn some interesting things that you can use to improve people's lives, including your own.
