This outstanding book is an important collection of papers from the 2013 John Bowlby Memorial Conference by accomplished clinicians from different modalities who share their experience of working with people with different kinds of addiction. The papers bring together an in-depth understanding that addictions are a response to, and hold the pain of, broken attachments and are best treated within healthy interpersonal relationships. For a long time the person with an addiction has been seen as the problem with society being able to live in denial of the causes. These papers open up innovative and effective ways of working with people troubled by addiction from an attachment-informed perspective.Contributors: Cara Crossan, Richard Gill, Lynn Greenwood, Bob Johnson, Liz Karter, Edward Khantzian, Arlene Vetere, Kate White, Jason Wright

»Hari vereint präzise Recherche mit einer zutiefst menschlichen Erzählung. Dieses Buch wird eine dringend notwendige Debatte auslösen.« Glenn Greenwald Der Krieg gegen die Drogen gilt inzwischen als gescheitert, der Handel mit Drogen ist ein blühendes Geschäft, alle Maßnahmen gegen den Konsum sind weitgehend erfolglos. Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise – von Brooklyn über Mexiko bis nach Deutschland – und erzählt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwährenden Kampf gegen Drogen geprägt ist: von Dealern, Süchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren. Mit seiner grandiosen literarischen Reportage schreibt Hari sowohl eine Geschichte des Krieges gegen Drogen als auch ein mitreißendes und streitbares Plädoyer zum Umdenken. »Hervorragender Journalismus, packend erzählt.« Naomi Klein »Phantastisch!« Noam Chomsky

Rich traditions of group therapy permeate the substance misuse field - from residential and day-centre group programmes and the fellowship group tradition to the panoply of support/education and relapse prevention groups offered by out-patient services. There are specialist groups - e.g. art therapy and psychodrama- and groups for special population- e.g. relatives, prisoners and adult children of alcoholics. This important collection is written by many well-known experts, several renowned on the international stage, with perspectives from the UK, USA and Scandinavia. They share their extensive experiences in the conceptualisation, setting up and running of therapy groups. Ultimately, all are concerned in their groups to increase empathic contact and thereby to facilitate opportunities for addicts to embark upon change. With no equivalent UK book of its kind, the reader has a rare opportunity to consider this subject in impressive scope, diversity and depth.

[Doing Things for Reasons] What exactly are the reasons for our actions, and how are they related to the results of these actions? The conventional doctrine is that these reasons are mental states of the actant, such as volition or opinion, but here a new thesis is developed; according to Bittner, our actions are motivated by states or events in the world. This answer, worked out and defended in detail, leads ultimately to a radical new conception of ourselves as actants.

Das erste Rätsel, vor dem ich stand, war: Wie konnte es sein, dass ich immer noch depressiv war, obwohl ich Antidepressiva nahm? Ich machte alles richtig - und doch lief etwas falsch. Warum? Das zweite Rätsel: Warum gibt es heute so viel mehr Menschen, die unter Depressionen und schweren Ängsten leiden? Was hat sich verändert? Da ging mir auf, dass noch ein drittes Rätsel über allem schwebte. Konnte es sein, dass etwas anderes, und nicht die Chemie in meinem Hirn, Depressionen und Ängste bei mir und so vielen anderen Menschen auslöste? Und wenn ja: Was konnte es sein? »Wenn Sie sich jemals niedergeschlagen oder verloren gefühlt haben, wird dieses Buch Ihr Leben ändern.« Elton John »Eine wunderbare und bestechende Analyse.« Hillary Clinton »Ein Buch, das viel über unsere innere Verzweiflung und unseren Lebenswandel verrät« Naomi Klein »Ein brillanter, anregender und radikaler Ansatz zur psychischen Gesundheit« Matt Haig

Gruppenpsychotherapie ist eine wirksame und ökonomische, dabei jedoch sehr anspruchsvolle Behandlungsform. Ohne gründliche Kenntnis der gruppendynamischen Verläufe und speziellen therapeutischen Anwendungen ist Angst vor Gruppen aus Therapeuten-Sicht durchaus berechtigt. Diese Angst vermag das Buch zu zerstreuen durch - eine kompetente Darstellung der Wirkprinzipien in Therapiegruppen, - die praxisnahe Beschreibung der Zusammenstellung von Gruppen, ihrer typischen Phasenverläufe und erwartbaren Konflikte, - Erfahrungsberichte aus störungsspezifischen Gruppen - und zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht: die Vermittlung speziellen Wissens über Gruppen mit traumatisierten Menschen (Luise Reddemann).

Adolescent and Young Adult Addiction

The Pathological Relationship to Intoxication and the Interpersonal Neurobiology Underpinnings

This thought provoking book “Adolescent & Young Adult Addiction: The Pathological Relationship to Intoxication and The Interpersonal Neurobiology Underpinnings” discusses the struggles of that the youth of today are faced with and puts forth that adolescent and young adult addicts are not addicted to marijuana, heroin, etc. The name of the drug is an illusion as they are hooked on a pathological “relationship to intoxication.” This book bridges the gap between the mental health and the addiction fields. This book helps the reader to understand that there is no separation between relationships, mind and brain (bio-psycho-social). The peak of intoxication is a release of neurotransmitters, such as, dopamine and often opiate/endorphins. These regulatory systems are actually built, sustained, broken and also repaired in attuned and mis-attuned relationships. How is this so? How does it get repaired? How do we bring this awareness to the client, family and offer the experience of attuned relationships? How do pressures of our left brain, solution focused, material chasing, “on-the-go” culture contribute to this problem? Adolescents and young adults are not supposed to “ask for help” as it is the role of the social systems to work together in a way that helps them recognize their drug use as a problem. After these systems have helped to “lift the bottom” and dislodge the addict’s relationship to intoxication, then the work is on understanding and treating the underpinnings that drive addiction. If the underpinnings are not dealt with, then relapse and cross-addictions will occur. Utilizing attuned relationships to rewrite the internal working model, and sustain neurobiological regulatory systems is the key for long term sobriety... Jon Daily, LSCW, CADCII is an expert in the specialized field of adolescent and young adult addictive disorders and dual diagnosis. Jon’s wisdom on understanding and treating today’s youth combined with his ability to conceptualize and translate interpersonal neurobiology in a straight forward applicable fashion is a real gift to the reader.

In the UK it is estimated that a third of patients in mental health services have a substance use problem, and that half of patients in drug and alcohol services have a mental health problem. Part of Palgrave's Foundations of Mental Health series, this book explores the intertwined issues of substance use and mental health as a social phenomenon and offers a critical, informative guide to understanding dual diagnosis. Written by authors with extensive experience within mental health and drug treatment services, Working with Dual Diagnosis explores areas that are key to understanding the relationship between the two, including: • models for understanding substance use, mental health and the correlation of complex social and psychological factors; • treatment processes for working with individuals, groups and families and within a community setting; • the historical social, political, economic and legislative context of mental health and substance use; • practice implications for dual diagnosis, including how practitioners can work with and promote better treatment, after care and support for those experiencing dual diagnosis issues. Enriched with reflective exercises, case studies and key points, this book will inform all work related to dual diagnosis populations within health, social and criminal justice service, and is an essential text for social work, nursing, occupational therapy and probation students.

Relational Approaches to Group Psychotherapy

The One and the Many: Relational Approaches to Group Psychotherapy applies advances in relational psychoanalysis to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy. In this volume Robert Grossmark and Fred Wright bring together leading writers in the group psychotherapy field, both psychoanalysts and group therapists, who have integrated ideas from contemporary relational psychoanalysis. Together, they constitute a vibrant and dynamic new wave in group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis that challenge much accepted wisdom and practice in the field, including classic group psychotherapy ideas regarding the therapist’s role, the group-as-a-whole and unconscious processes in group. In this book, Grossmark and Wright show how the development of relational psychoanalysis has had a transformative impact on the field of psychoanalysis that has reverberated in the group psychotherapy world. The contributors illustrate how the broadening scope of the contemporary relational scene offers much that coheres with and amplifies the theory and practice of group treatment. The focus on dissociation, enactment, trauma, mutuality and intersubjectivity in the clinical setting, the foregrounding of sub-symbolic communication and implicit relational knowing, the registration of mutual containment and mutual regulation, all open new and exciting vistas for understanding the process and healing properties of group treatment. The One and The Many expands the theory and practice of group psychotherapy offering innovative and refreshing ways to understand group interaction and to formulate interventions in both large and small groups. This book will be of interest and practical help to all who practice group psychotherapy, group process, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in general, including all mental health practitioners, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors and pastoral counsellors.

Wie man die Angst vor dem Tod überwindet

Gibt es ein Leben vor dem Tod? Über die Dinge im Leben, die wirklich wichtig sind ... Die größte Herausforderung für den Menschen ist es, seiner eigenen Sterblichkeit ins Auge zu blicken. Die Angst vor dem Tod unterscheidet den Menschen vom Tier: Jede Religion, jede Kulturleistung ist ein Versuch, sich das Undenkbare begreiflich zu machen. Der amerikanische Psychoanalytiker und Bestsellerautor Irvin D. Yalom nähert sich in diesem Buch einer der größten Fragen der Menschheit sowohl auf der professionellen wie auch auf einer zutiefst persönlichen Ebene. „Auch ich fürchte den Tod wie jeder Mensch“, schreibt Yalom, „er ist unser düsterer Schatten, der sich nicht abschütteln lässt.“ In seiner praktischen Arbeit hat er andererseits erfahren, wie sehr das Wissen um den nahen Tod bei vielen seiner Patienten zu einer vollkommenen Neuorientierung, ja Bereicherung führte. Wie sie auf einmal in der Lage waren, Entscheidungen zu treffen, die ihnen wirklich am Herzen lagen. „In die Sonne schauen“ ist deshalb nicht nur eine Auseinandersetzung mit der Endlichkeit des Lebens, sondern auch ein Plädoyer für ein bewusstes Leben. „Es ist kein düsteres Buch“, so Yalom, „meine Hoffnung ist vielmehr, dass wir begreifen, wie kostbar jeder Moment ist und wie tröstlich unser Miteinander, wenn wir unserer Endlichkeit, unserer kurzen Zeit im Licht, wirklich ins Auge sehen.“
