Recent years have witnessed considerable growth in the field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), which describes how psychological factors, such as stress and depression, impact the neurological and immune systems. Research increasingly indicates that psychological states play a key role in the development and exacerbation of inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers, and autoimmune disorders. In this book, editor Kathleen Kendall-Tackett and an elite group of researchers explore the ways physical and psychological stressors such as poor sleep, PTSD, and depression, trigger the inflammatory response and increase the risk of disease. They approach this material from a variety of perspectives. Chapters in Part I describe the biological processes involved in inflammation, focusing on both the typical bodily response to threat as well as on the long-term deleterious effects of stress upon the immune system; while chapters in Part II examine the role of psychosocial stress in disease etiology. Throughout, chapter authors present evidence of connections between mind and body, and emphasize the need for improved communication between physicians and mental health care providers. This book will be a valuable resource for researchers as well as practitioners who hope to share the benefits of these findings with their clients.

This book sets forth a new model of development from a causal perspective. As this is an area vital to several disciplines. It has been written at multiple levels and for multiple audiences. It is based on the work of Piaget and Neo-Piagetians, but also covers other major models in development. It has elements that make it attractive as a teaching text, but it is especially research-focused. It has clinical applications. It presents many new ideas and models consistent with the existing literature, which is reviewed extensively. Students, researchers, and practitioners should find it useful. The models presented in the present work build on models introduced in prior publications (e.g., Young, 1990a, 1990b; 1997).

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.

Ärzte, Pflegekräfte und Psychotherapeuten erheben in Europa bislang im Rahmen ihrer Diagnostik in aller Regel keine spirituelle Anamnese und gehen in der Behandlung nur selten auf die spirituellen Bedürfnisse ihrer Patienten ein. Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe betrachten Religiosität und Spiritualität entweder nicht als ihren Zuständigkeitsbereich oder sind unsicher im Umgang damit. Dieses Buch gibt Grundlagen zum Thema und bietet allen Berufsgruppen innerhalb des therapeutischen Teams konkrete Hilfestellungen zum Umgang mit den spirituellen Bedürfnissen ihrer Patienten. Auch problematische Aspekte werden beleuchtet. Gesundheitsrelevante Informationen zu verschiedenen Religionen und ein Muster-Curriculum runden das Werk ab.

Psychoneuroimmunology is the study of interactions among behavioral, neural and endocrine, and immunologic processes of adaptation. These two volumes provide a clearly written, extensively referenced summary of some of the behavioral, neural and endocrine regulators of immune responses and immunologically mediated disease processes and of the behavioral and neuroendocrine effects of immune system activity. Several chapters expand upon topics reviewed in earlier editions of this series; most chapters cover active areas of research that have not previously been reviewed. As illustrated in this fourth edition, interdisciplinary research continues to provide evidence that the brain and immune system represent a single, integrated system of defense.
