      Rückenschmerzen therapieren

      Von der multimodalen Idee zur interdisziplinären Lösung

      by Michael Hamel, Marion Heinrich, Kay Niemier, Ulf Marnitz

      Rückenschmerzen nachhaltig behandeln? Dieses Buch beschreibt anwendungsorientiert die multimodale Therapie und stellt ausführlich die interdisziplinäre Diagnostik und Therapie von Menschen mit Rückenschmerzen anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus dem klinischen Behandlungsalltag vor. Die Forderung nach Interdisziplinarität ist nicht neu, ihre Umsetzung im Behandlungsalltag aber bisher kaum konkret beschrieben. Schwerpunkte und Vorgehen der unterschiedlichen Disziplinen - Medizin, Physiotherapie, Psychologie und Sportwissenschaft - innerhalb einer Tagesklinik werden detailliert dargestellt. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt auf der fachübergreifenden Kommunikation und der Gestaltung des auf Aktivierung und Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe ausgerichteten Behandlungsansatzes. Die Autoren, sämtlich Therapeuten mit langjähriger praktischer Erfahrung, skizzieren Möglichkeiten zur Vernetzung der Module als den wesentlichen Qualitätssprung der interdisziplinären Schmerztherapie. Das gibt, auch nicht in einem Team arbeitenden Kollegen, Anregungen, für andere Disziplinen „mitzudenken" und den eigenen Behandlungsansatz weiterzuentwickeln.

      Philosophy, Counseling, and Psychotherapy

      by Editor(s): Elliot D. Cohen and Samuel Zinaich, Jr.

      Can philosophy help ordinary people confront their personal or interpersonal problems of living? Can it help a couple whose marriage is on the rocks, or someone going through a midlife crisis, or someone depressed over the death of a significant other, or who suffers from anxiety about making a life change? These and many other behavioral and emotional problems are ordinarily referred to psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, or other mental health specialists. Less mainstream is the possibility of consulting a philosophical counselor or practitioner. Yet, there is presently a steadily increasing, world-wide movement among individuals with postgraduate credentials in philosophy to harness their philosophical training and skills in helping others to address their life problems.But is this channeling of philosophy outside the classroom into the arena of life a good idea? Are philosophers, as such, competent to handle all or any of the myriad emotional and behavioral problems that arise in the context of life; or should these matters best be left to those trained in psychological counseling or psychotherapy?Through a diverse and contrasting set of readings authored by prominent philosophers, philosophical counselors, and psychologists, this volume carefully explores the nature of philosophical counseling or practice and its relationship to psychological counseling and psychotherapy. Digging deeply into this relational question, this volume aims to spark more rational reflection, and greater sensitivity and openness to the potential contributions of philosophical practice. It is, accordingly, intended for students, teachers, scholars, and practitioners of philosophy, counseling, or psychotherapy; as well as those interested in knowing more about philosophical counseling or practice.

      Individual Analytical Psychology

      The Concept of Alfred Adler from an Existential Perspective

      by Gisela Eife

      This book poses questions that we therapists ask patients whose existence is threatened by hidden fear and hopelessness. These fears of patients of not being able to live or survive, consciously or unconsciously lead to a commitment to countervail the perceived threats. Alfred Adler sees a general principle of human life in this compensation. The special feature of the individual analytical psychology is in emphasising the individual experience and in the concept of double dynamics of compensation and sense of community. This vision is the result of case vignettes from therapy.

      Psychopharmacology and Psychoanalysis

      Basics, Clinic, Research

      by Joachim Küchenhoff

      Psychoanalysis is, in theory and practice, indispensable for psychiatry - and vice versa. Psychoanalysis becomes impoverished if it does not pose itself the challenges that can occur in psychiatric therapy. The book enters new territory when it asks how a psycho-pharmacological treatment and a psychoanalytic treatment interact: What is changed in the therapeutic relationship, if psychotropic drugs are issued? How does the medication dose change, if it is reflected psychodynamically? How can the interaction of psychodynamic and neurobiological effects be scientifically classified? The work gets to the bottom of these important questions and clarifies the meaning and the effects of psychopharmacology for certain mental disorders on a psychoanalytic basis.

For her, it was as if an alien presence was moving her mouth and speaking for her. At the same time, thoughts raced around in her head so fast her mind felt like it was about to dissolve into chaos, and she felt like she was floating in space miles above the earth. When all of this happened, a plastic calmness immediately settled over her face, as it always did when she felt upset, and particularly so when she felt very upset. Jessica was shocked that no one had ever noticed and asked if she was OK. Nonetheless, she lived with the fear that one day someone would discover who – or what – she really was. She decided that the best way to prevent that was to act as if she really was a needing, wanting person. Without hesitating a second in any situation, Jessica did whatever was expected of her, and in a way that wouldn’t upset anyone and keep her as inconspicuous as possible. Jessica was certain what would happen if her secret ever leaked out. Strangers would suddenly surround her and, with arms raised and fingers pointed directly at her, shout “Imposter! Imposter! Here’s the imposter!” Before she knew it, she’d find herself in court and quickly found guilty of impersonating a real human being. The next day’s headlines would surely read: SCIENTISTS GATHER TO EXAMINE ALIEN IMPOSTER. Until Jessica entered therapy as an adult, she had no way of knowing how she had become such a mystery to herself. After a slow start to her therapy, she asked for multiple-hour sessions several days a week in hopes of a breakthrough. Her intuition proved correct. She started to remember experiences from the first weeks of her infancy. During that time, when every minute should have been filled with exciting discoveries about herself and her world, she rarely saw a smiling face, or experienced a soft caress, or heard a tender voice, or felt her body being handled in a gentle way. In many of the events that Jessica remembered, her mother’s inattentive, hurried behavior made her feel that the needing, wanting part of her was “dangerous” and that for her own survival she “had to stay away from it.” In these longer sessions, as Jessica remembered more and more early experiences she also felt more and more like a needing, wanting person. For Dr. Von Glahn, listening to these recollections was just like listening to an infant who could talk describe every psychologically dramatic moment of its life as it was happening. All of those recollections were audio-taped and included in this book in edited form for ease of reading. Today, Jessica is an articulate spokesperson for the emotional well-being of infants

      THE POWER OF SIX

      HOW THE BRAIN FEELS

      Working with Emotion and Cognition

      by Philip Harland

      “Let my heart be wise. It is the gods’ best gift.” Euripides Models of facilitation (therapy, counselling, teaching, coaching, health management, etc.) have rarely dealt with the inter-dependency of emotion and cognition. In the 1980s, NLP researchers developed the concept of the structure of emotion. Work in the 1980s on ‘Meta-States’ addressed the modulating of primary emotional states with cognitively-led meta-levels of feeling. Here Clean Language psychotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner Philip Harland explores the neuro-linguistic basis of Emotional Intelligence, relating recent work on the structure and relationship of emotion and cognition to innovative therapist David Grove’s work in Clean Language and Therapeutic Metaphor. Philip worked for many years with the late David Grove. They co-facilitated many clients together and ran seminars in Britain, France and New Zealand. Philip Harland is a Clean Language psychotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. He is also the author of ‘Trust Me, I’m The Patient: Clean Language, Metaphor and the New Psychology of Change’; ‘The Power of Six: A Six Part Guide to Self Knowledge; and the two short Clean Language–related books ‘Resolving Problem Patterns with Clean Language and Autogenic Metaphor’ and ‘Possession and Desire: working with addiction, compulsion and dependency’; all published by Wayfinder Press.

      POSSESSION AND DESIRE

      Working with Addiction, Compulsion and Dependency

      by Philip Harland

      Understanding and working with addiction, compulsion and dependency; a 6-part guide for addicts, enablers and therapists“Choosing the temporary discomforts of desire over the permanent discomforts of possession” Part I VIOLENT PLEASURES ARE RELIEFS OF PAIN Each one of us is prone to addiction or dependency to a greater or lesser degree. Part I is about understanding why this is so. Part II SOME ADDICTIONS FEEL PHYSICAL, BUT ALL ADDICTIONS ARE MENTAL Addiction is a subject for study. Addicting is something we do. Part II follows the bodymind process of becoming addicted as a basis for deciding where we wish to go next. PART III THE PHYSICIAN’S PROVIDER How as therapists and facilitators do we position ourselves in relation to addictive clients? How does language affect our beliefs and practices? Part III discusses the difference between intervening and interfering, and between conscious and unconscious outcome forming. It suggests a way to align ourselves with the client’s outcome and to activate change without resorting to supposition, interpretation or suggestion. PART IV THE LIMIT OF DESIRES As addicts we give energy to a system that encourages us to play victim and persecutor in turn. Part IV examines the differences between ‘quitting’ and ‘controlling’. The continuum of progression from simple desire to complex need to total possession is explored. PART V ADDICTIVE CONTRADICTIONS Part V deconstructs typically addictive double-binds and dualities, including the familiar dilemma of being caught between aversion (‘I must give up X’) and attraction (‘I can’t give up X’). Eight approaches to resolving duality thinking are identified and explained PART VI AUDITING FOR X Unscrambles haphazard approaches to client assessment and offers a systematic audit for facilitators of all kinds, including self-helpers, to assess addictions, compulsions, and dependencies and to work successfully with them through language as an alternative to medical means. The audit is arranged in four frames: person, possession, pattern, and preference: Person: how much of the client is involved, and where? Possession: what is the nature of the client's attachment? Pattern: how do the client's life patterns and internal patterns relate? Preference: what choices does the client have? Most of us can learn to move from addictive state to non-addictive state. Those uncertain about the path to take will find the aids to navigation here useful both theoretically and practically. We may all – addicts and enablers, therapists and clients alike – learn to deal with the occasional discomforts of desire rather than the permanent discomforts of possession. Philip Harland is a Clean Language psychotherapist and author of ‘Trust Me, I’m the Patient: Clean Language, Metaphor, and the New Psychology of Change’; ‘The Power of Six, A Six Part Guide to Self Knowledge’; ‘Resolving Problem Patterns with Clean Language and Autogenic Metaphor’; and ‘How The Brain Feels: working with Emotion and Cognition’.

      RESOLVING PROBLEM PATTERNS

      with Clean Language and Autogenic Metaphor

      by Philip Harland

      How can problem patterns be discerned, decoded and the information within them released? This guide has five parts: ‘What is as Pattern?’ ‘How Can Patterns be Discerned?’ ‘How Can Problem Patterns be Decoded?’ ‘How Can the Information Within be Released?’ and ‘Then What Happens: the Nature of Change’. At a time when psychoactive drugs are being prescribed more widely than at any time in history, it is more important than ever to educate ourselves about the alternatives. The drug-free resolution of problem patterns of behavior, feeling or belief is as important for health professionals to be able to facilitate as it is for their clients and patients to achieve. This guide has a bias towards the talking therapies – and in particular the radical new art of Clean Language – but its precepts and procedures are applicable to any area of human enquiry. New, more productive, patterns of behaviour, feeling and belief emerge through CleanLanguage modelling as the client identifies component parts of their perceptions, develops these in form, space, or time; elucidates key relationships between them; discerns patterns across the relationships and translates these patterns to their everyday lives. As a result it is the client, not the facilitator, who determines the significance of their perceptions. And as the system learns about its own organization, a context for self-generated change is created and it is the client, not the facilitator, who determines what needs to happen for the system to evolve. Philip Harland is a Clean Language psychotherapist and author of ‘Trust Me, I’m the Patient: Clean Language, Metaphor and the New Psychology of Change’; ‘The Power of Six: a Six Part Guide to Self Knowledge’; ‘Possession and Desire: understanding and working with addiction, compulsion and dependency’; and ‘How the Brain Feels: working with emotion and cognition’; all published by Wayfinder Press, London England.

      The Key to a Loving & Lasting Relationship

      by Dr. Sonja H. Snyman

      What makes some couples achieve happy long-lasting relationships, while others, try and try but do not? The human quest for a successful long-term relationship has produced a plethora of hypotheses, psychological theories and a lot of popular advice about how to improve relationships. This book is about how to forge a successful, lasting relationship by accepting and practising the good-enough paradigm. Psychologists, counsellors and individuals are offered a new way of understanding and looking at relationships. A new perspective shows how to leave old hurts behind, how to understand destructive behaviour patters and how to gain new insights into whether one is trapped in the blame game or in sabotaging behaviour. One will learn that no relationship has a fairy-tale ending. One will also come to realise that by accepting a relationship as being "good-enough", it will be one of the most liberating and empowering shifts that one will ever make.
