However it is conceived and described by psychotherapists with different orientations, a stronger ego is a universally-acknowledged goal of therapeutic work. Inner Strengths is the first book to meet the need for a comprehensive treatment of approaches to ego-strengthening in psychotherapy. It provides contemporary psychodynamic, object relations, self-psychology, ego state, and transpersonal theoretical models for understanding how and why ego-strengthening occurs. The authors are experienced psychotherapists who integrate hypnosis into their own practice of psychotherapy. They have been active in developing the newer, projective-evocative ego-strengthening techniques emphasizing the utilization of patients' inner resources. They survey the history of ego-strengthening efforts and show how that which has been considered intrinsically hypnotic connects with the great traditions of psychotherapy. Additionally, they offer step-by-step instructions for a diversity of ego-strengthening methods that can be used for patient self-care, internal boundary formation, and personality maturation in a wide range of clinical conditions. Their discussion of the fundamental concepts of ego-strengthening draws on their theoretical and clinical explorations of dynamic internal resources such as memory, strength, wisdom, self-soothing, and love. Throughout the book, theory is balanced by an unusual richness of extended clinical examples and a wide variety of practical ego-strengthening scripts. Clinicians need not be trained in hypnosis to find Inner Strengths clarifying and helpful reading; the fundamental points so vividly made by the authors are relevant to many nonhypnotic-therapeutic interventions and issues.

As the average age of the population rises, mental health professionals have become increasingly aware of the critical importance of personality in mediating successful adaptation in later life. Personality disorders were once thought to "age out," and accordingly to have an inconsequential impact on the lives of the elderly. But recent clinical experience and studies underscore not only the prevalence of personality disorders in older people, but the pivotal roles they play in the onset, course, and treatment outcomes of other emotional and cognitive problems and physical problems as well. Clearly, mental health professionals must further develop research methods, assessment techniques, and intervention strategies targeting these disorders; and they must more effectively integrate what is being learned from advances in research and theory into clinical practice. Inspired by these needs, the editors have brought together a distinguished group of behavioral scientists and clinicians dedicated to understanding the interaction of personality and aging. Offering a rich array of theoretical perspectives (intrapsychic, interpersonal, neuropsychological, and systems), they summarize the empirical literature, present phenomenological case reports, and review psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and pharmacological treatment approaches. This comprehensive state-of-the-art guide will be welcomed by all those who must confront the complexity and the challenge of working with this population.

The past decade has seen more and more clinicians involved in the assessment and treatment of abused and traumatized children. They have contributed to an impressively large body of literature on the impact of abuse and trauma at all ages, the focus of which has been the short and long-term sequelae apparent in the child's behavior, emotional experience, and social interaction. But there have been few efforts to investigate the ways in which abuse and trauma damage the intrapsychic systems and structures that often guide, direct, and inform the child's manifest adjustment and functioning. The need to redress the balance was the major impetus for this book. Kelly offers a clinical paradigm for the personality assessment of abused or traumatized children via projective instruments--the TAT and Rorschach--and shows how various projective measures and indices can be utilized as sensitive barometers of changes in self, object, and ego functioning following therapeutic interventions and other corrective experiences. But further, integrating the tenets of trauma theory and those of psychoanalytic theory, he sets this clinical paradigm in a meaningful theoretical context, and draws on both theory and clinical experience to develop a comprehensive psychological composite of the child who has been maltreated. Part I provides an overview of theoretical models relevant to the assessment and diagnosis of the maltreated child. Contemporary psychoanalytic theory serves as one frame and is discussed first, with particular emphasis on object relations and ego functions. Equal attention is devoted to developmental psychology as another frame. Part II reviews relevant research. The Mutality of Autonomy Scale (MOA) and the Social Cognition and Object Relations Scale (SCORS) are introduced as examples of reliable and valid instruments readily employed to assess the impact of abuse or trauma on a child's object relations functioning. Additional Rorschach indices--boundary disturbance measures, thought disorder indices, trauma markers, and defensive functions measures--are discussed as measures of the impact on different facets of ego functioning. These various projective measures can be utilized as sensitive barometers of changes in self, object, and ego functioning following therapeutic interventions and other corrective experiences. Part III includes a variety of extended clinical illustrations. Seven cases of boys and girls subjected to varying degrees of abuse and trauma are presented to demonstrate the clinical utility of projective material for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning. For the clinician who takes the idiographical-phenomenological approach, appropriate given the uniqueness of each situation of abuse or trauma and the frequent brevity and barrenness of the protocol, such material can open a window onto a rich vista of the child's psychological terrain. The resulting map can point the way to wise decisions about type, timing, and level of therapeutic intervention, the resolution of such process issues as transference and countertransference, plus additional questions. Two cases of adult women who were abused as children and find themselves continuing to struggle with enduring unresolved issues vis a vis their own children are also presented. These cases underscore the value of TAT and Rorschach material, and object relations measures, in assessing and understanding the abusive and potentially abusive parent.

Welche Faktoren bringen uns dazu, das zu tun, was andere von uns wollen? Und welche Techniken machen von diesen Faktoren am wirksamsten Gebrauch? In seinem Bestseller “Die Psychologie des Überzeugens” beschäftigt sich Robert B. Cialdini - der zunächst in den Bereichen Verkauf, Fundraising und Werbung praktische Erfahrungen sammelte und heute Professor für Sozialpsychologie ist - mit Theorie und Praxis des Überzeugens. Frühere Ausgaben des Buches wurden für ihre gute Lesbarkeit, ihre praktischen Anregungen sowie ihre wissenschaftliche Genauigkeit hoch gelobt und haben eine große Leserschaft unter Wirtschaftsfachleuten, Fundraising-Spezialisten und Menschen mit Interesse an Psychologie gefunden. Die vorliegende Neuausgabe enthält: - doppelt so viele Berichte von Leserinnen und Lesern über deren persönliche Erfahrungen mit den im Buch beschriebenen Prinzipien - neue Beispiele aus den Bereichen Populärkultur und neue Technologien sowie - mehr darüber, wie Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Beeinflussung in unterschiedlichen Kulturen zum Ausdruck kommen.

In der Traumatherapie wird nicht mehr automatisch nur auf das Schwere fokussiert, sondern ganz bewusst mit den Klientinnen und Klienten nach Ereignissen in ihrem Leben gesucht, die gelungen sind, schön waren, erfolgreich und lustbetont. Dieses Buch vermittelt bewährte Techniken zur Ressourcenaktivierung mit EMDR, von denen die Autoren aufgrund ihrer praktischen Arbeit überzeugt sind. Zusätzlich zum EMDR-Standardprotokoll haben sich etliche Protokolle entwickelt, in denen die bilaterale Stimulation von EMDR mit verschiedenen anderen Techniken kombiniert wird. Das Buch soll einen Überblick über genau die Techniken geben, bei denen sich die Ressourcenaktivierung mit EMDR im klinischen Einsatz bewährt hat und möchte andere Therapeuten ermutigen, die Techniken ebenfalls auszuprobieren und zu erforschen. Die Erstauflage von 2008 wurde für diese Neuauflage um einige Beiträge erweitert. Mit Beiträgen von: Christine Rost, Arne Hofmann, Franz Ebner, Dagmar Eckers, Reinhard Plassmann, Michael Hase, Susanne Leutner, Mark Novy, Björke Kühn von Burgsdorff, Visal Tumani
