Ist die Psyche nichts als die neuronalen Prozesse im Gehirn? Müssen zentrale mentale Begriffe wie Selbst, Bewusstsein, Unbewusstsein, etc. durch neuronale Mechanismen erklärt werden und die Psychiatrie durch die Neurowissenschaften ersetzt werden? Unser Buch zeigt auf, dass mentale Prozesse und psychische Symptome bei psychiatrischen Erkrankungen wie Schizophrenie, Depression, etc. weder reine geistige noch nur neuronale Prozesse sind. Gehirn ist immer auch schon Umwelt; und es ist die Interaktion der Umwelt-Gehirn-Beziehung, in der psychische Phänomene inklusive ihrer Abnormitäten ihren neuropsychodynamischen Ursprung haben.

Die Behandlung einer Anorexie stellt eine besondere Herausforderung für Therapeuten dar. Die Betroffenen haben eine starke Bindung an ihre Symptomatik und ein ausgeprägtes Autonomiestreben, oft verbunden mit einer fehlenden Krankheitseinsicht. Dies erschwert den therapeutischen Zugang. Hinzu kommen die mit dem Untergewicht verbundenen gravierenden gesundheitlichen Folgen. Das in diesem Band vorgestellte manualisierte psychodynamische Vorgehen wurde zur ambulanten Behandlung der Anorexia nervosa bei erwachsenen Patientinnen entwickelt. Die Wirksamkeit des beschriebenen Therapiekonzepts konnte in einer umfangreichen empirischen Studie belegt werden. Einleitend gibt der Band grundlegende Informationen zum Störungsbild der Anorexia nervosa und erläutert relevante Störungsmodelle und -theorien. Weiterhin werden Hinweise zum diagnostischen Vorgehen gegeben. Anschließend werden die Therapieprinzipien und Behandlungsphasen vorgestellt und praxisnah anhand von Interventionsbeispielen erläutert. Der Behandlungsfokus liegt besonders auf beziehungsdynamischen Aspekten und damit verbundenen zentralen Konfliktthemen. Einen weiteren therapeutischen Fokus stellen typische ich-strukturelle Beeinträchtigungen dar, z.B. in den Bereichen des Affekterlebens und der Affektdifferenzierung, der Impulssteuerung, Selbstwertregulierung und der Wahrnehmung des eigenen Körperbildes. Zwei ausführlichere Fallbeispiele runden den Band ab.

Nancy Andreasen, führende Neurowissenschaftlerin, Herausgeberin des angesehenen American Journal of Psychiatry und ausgezeichnet mit der National Medal of Science, zeigt uns in ihrem neuen Buch die Zusammenhänge zwischen Gehirn und Genom. Dank modernster Methoden und Entdeckungen in Neurowissenschaften und Molekularbiologie wissen Forscher mehr denn je über die Funktionen des Gehirns. Die Autorin beschreibt auf faszinierende und verständliche Weise, wie alles zusammenhängt - von Milliarden kleinster Neuronen im Thalamus bis hin zur moralischen Kontrollinstanz im präfrontalen Kortex. Sie erklärt die Entschlüsselung des Genoms, dessen 30000-40000 Gene fast alle in irgendeiner Form in unserem Gehirn aktiv sind. In fesselnden Geschichten beleuchtet sie aber auch, wie sich psychische Störungen entwickeln und welche Auswirkungen sie auf Patienten und Angehörige haben. Nancy Andreasen gelingt der Brückenschlag zwischen hochkomplexen Inhalten und spannender Lektüre.
