Einführung in die kognitive Therapie nach Aaron T. Beck Neben Albert Ellis zählt vor allem Aaron T. Beck zu den Begründern der kognitiven Therapien. Beck unterzog die Psychoanalyse bei der Behandlung von Depressionen einer kritischen Überprüfung und kam zu dem Schluss, dass sie zu langwierig sei und keine nennenswerten Verbesserungen erziele. Eine kognitive Therapie der Depression sollte Abhilfe schaffen und in den Vordergrund rücken, wie Patienten ihre Wahrnehmung aktiv gestalten. Die Prinzipien der kognitiven Therapie nach Beck sind inzwischen erfolgreich auf viele weitere psychische Störungen übertragen worden. Frank Wills erläutert in diesem Buch ihre Entstehung und typischen Merkmale sowie Unterscheidungsmerkmale, die sie von anderen psychologischen Ansätzen abgrenzt. Dieses Buch ist ein weiterer Band aus der Reihe „Therapeutische Skills kompakt“, in der Theorie und Praxis einzelner Therapieformen fundiert und kurzweilig vorgestellt werden.

Life-span Development

Frameworks, Accounts and Strategies

Category: Psychology

Page: 256

This thorough revision of the highly successful first edition of Life-Span Development offers the reader a wide-ranging and thought provoking account of human development throughout the lifespan. The lifespan approach emphasises that development does not stop when we cease to be adolescents but goes on throughout adulthood and into old age. In initial chapters Leonie Sugarman outlines the issues surrounding the notion of development and how it can be studied, including reviews of the work of key theorists Erikson, Levinson and Gould. She goes on to consider the different ways in which the life course can be construed: as a series of age-related stages; as a cumulative sequence; as a series of developmental tasks; as a series of key life events and transitions or as a narrative construction which creates a sense of dynamic continuity. A final chapter looks at how people cope, the resources that are available and the theoretical and practical issues regarding interventions to assist them in the process. New to this edition is increased coverage of the topical issue of successful ageing and a new chapter on the increasingly popular narrative approach to lifespan development. This edition is also more student-friendly with exercises in self-reflection that encourage the reader to look at the development of their own lives or those of their current or future clients. Boxed material highlighting major theories and clarifying concepts is also included. This book will be invaluable for students of developmental and occupational psychology and professionals in the fields of health management, education and social work.

Praise for the First Edition: `An excellently edited book... It touches upon the core philosophical bases of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic, cognitive and humanistic counselling, and explores the complicated and sometimes contradictory nature of contracting within these approaches... The book is written in an accessible language and often uses very powerful imagery to underline its message... I found this book to be extremely stimulating, accessible and readable. I recommend it to all people interested in counselling, and particularly to students of counselling at all levels' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Second Edition is a practical guide to an essential area of professional knowledge and skills. Any kind of therapeutic relationship requires an agreement between practitioner and client at the outset. When contracting with clients, practitioners need to consider a whole range of factors including: " goals of counselling " theoretical orientation " brief or open-ended counselling " different personality types " ethical and legal issues. This book provides a unique guide to the nature of counselling contracts, why they are needed and how they are made. For the second edition, the book has been thoroughly updated to take account of the BACP ethical framework. Two new chapters have been added covering the legal aspects of contracting, and how to make contracts with trainees. Contracts in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Second Edition is an authoritative source of information and practical guidance for trainees and practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy.

This book deals with what is perhaps the central question in therapy - who is the therapist? And how does that actually come across and manifest itself in the therapeutic relationship? A good deal of the thinking about this in psychoanalysis has come under the heading of countertransference. Much of the thinking in the humanistic approaches has come under such headings as empathy, genuineness, nonpossessive warmth, presence, personhood.

Shakespeare on the Couch

Page: 150

Drawing upon a vast literature in psychoanalytic journals and either upon Shakespeare's characters themselves or alluding to those characters in the course of other topics, this book discusses eight of Shakespeare's plays and the relationships between the main characters in them.Psychoanalytic and literary approaches sometimes diverge, but they can also concur in seeing characters either as true examples of different psychological states and types of relating or as symbolic of aspects of the personality. The chapters contain many references to psychoanalytic interpretations from Freud onwards, although these cannot be proved, and in some cases are over-stretched, there will be times when psychoanalytic criticism 'rings bells' in the reader. The importance of this book lies in its drawing together from a large number of disparate sources, many of which will be inaccessible to those who do not have access to the journals or psychoanalytic databases. It is nonetheless relevant for counsellors and therapists, as well as for those interested in literature, particularly in Shakespearean studies. It is written for the thinking lay reader, and does not blind the ordinary reader with psychoanalytic terminology and concepts. Readers who are therapists may gain some insights into aspects of some of their clients; everyone should be encouraged through these ideas and theories to muse upon aspects of his or her own personality, thoughts, fantasies and behaviours.

Erik H. Erikson is widely considered one of the most influential thinkers to have emerged from the field of psychoanalysis. His work is concerned with the relevance of psychotherapy to the everyday modern society. It was Erikson who originated the term 'identity crisis' and this book shows how his theories developed in response to his own life experience. It offers a comprehensive view of Erikson as a person, as a writer and thinker, and as a psychotherapist.As well as exploring the way Erikson's life and work are connected, this book examines the application of his thinking to contemporary social and political issues, and to current psychotherapeutic and counselling practice. His writings have a humanity and approachability that reach beyond the world of psychotherapy to consider questions fundamental to all of us. These include the precariousness as well as the creative resilience of individual and group identities; racial and other forms of discrimination; non-violent conflict resolution; the generation gap; and issues of human development from childhood and adolescence to maturity and old age.Erik Erikson will be of interest to counsellors and psychotherapists in training and in practice. It is relevant to members of the caring professions seeking deeper understanding of their work and its place in society.

Knowledge is never static. It is always open to revolutionary thinking or to evolving development. Similarly an individual's knowledge is always moving, and indeed if the ability to think about ideas is lost, an important part of the individual is also lost. In this book, a collection of some of the papers and lectures written by Michael Jacobs over a period of thirty or more years, the author shows his own thinking at work, as he challenges himself to look deeper at some important aspects of his discipline - principally psychodynamic psychotherapy, although always with reference to other forms of discourse such as literature and theology. Here the reader will find the writer behind those popular texts such as The Presenting Past, Psychodynamic Counselling in Action and Shakespeare on the Couch.

Die „Panikfokussierte Psychodynamische Psychotherapie“ (PFPP) ist eine psychodynamisch orientierte, manualisierte Behandlung der Panikstörung. Das Vorgehen wurde in den USA von der Autorengruppe um Barbara Milrod entwickelt und seine Wirksamkeit konnte in mehreren Studien empirisch belegt werden. Kern der Behandlung ist die sorgfältige Exploration der Symptomatik und der Entstehungssituationen der Panikattacken. Die damit verbundenen Gedanken, Phantasien und Gefühle des Patienten ermöglichen einen Zugang zu seinen Selbstvorstellungen und seinem Beziehungserleben, woraus sich der individuelle, die Panikstörung unterhaltende, Abhängigkeits-/Autonomiekonflikt erkennen und deuten lässt. Die Durcharbeitung des Konflikts fokussiert auf der Angst vor der Äußerung negativer Emotionen – insbesondere Ärger – in der Übertragungs-/Gegenübertragungssituation. Der Behandlungsansatz und das therapeutische Vorgehen werden anhand zahlreicher Fallbeispiele veranschaulicht und ergänzt durch eine ausführliche Darstellung des aktuellen Forschungsstands zur Ätiologie, Epidemiologie und Behandlung der Panikstörung. Der Band bietet damit eine aktuelle Übersicht zur störungsbezogenen Behandlung von Panikerkrankungen; mit der gleichzeitigen Betonung auf einem symptom- wie übertragungsbezogenen Ansatz füllt er eine Lücke in der Literatur zur Behandlung von Angststörungen.
