Das Buch entkräftet das gängige Vorurteil, Essstörungen seien nicht heilbar. Der hier vorgestellte, auf 35-jähriger Praxiserfahrung beruhende Behandlungsansatz für die ambulante Psychotherapie gibt TherapeutInnen, Betroffen und ihren Angehörigen neue Hoffnung. »Einmal essgestört – immer essgestört« – mit diesem Urteil sehen sich PatientInnen und ihre Angehörige häufig konfrontiert. Dem widerspricht Renate Feistner, die seit 35 Jahren magersüchtige, bulimische und esssüchtige Patientinnen behandelt, vehement, denn es entspricht nicht ihren Erfahrungen. Im Zentrum des Praxishandbuches für die ambulante Therapie steht das integrative und ressourcenorientierte Therapiekonzept der Autorin, das tiefenpsychologische, verhaltenstherapeutische und systemische Aspekte vereint. Die Rahmenbedingungen eines guten Heilungsprozesses werden ebenso erläutert wie die Faktoren und Phasen der Heilung selbst. Erfahrungen anderer ExpertInnen, Berichte von Patientinnen, Fragebögen zu Heilungskriterien und Heilungsgrad sowie die Erörterung der wichtigen Frage »Was verhindert Heilung« ergänzen die therapeutischen Ausführungen. - Wichtig für alle PsychotherapeutInnen, die PatientInnen mit Essstörungen behandeln - Was fördert Heilung, was verhindert Heilung? - Mit Berichten von geheilten PatientInnen, Fragebögen zu Heilungskriterien und anderem mehr - Mit eigens entwickelten Therapiematerialien und Interventionen Dieses Buch wendet sich an: - Psychologische und Ärztliche PsychotherapeutInnen - Kinder- und JugendlichenpsychotherapeutInnen - (Kinder-)PsychiaterInnen - SozialpädagogInnen, SozialarbeiterInnen - Betroffene, ihre Eltern und Angehörige
Author: Jessica Valenti
New York Times Bestseller NPR Best Book of 2016 “Sharp and prescient… The appeal of Valenti’s memoir lies in her ability to trace objectification through her own life, and to trace what was for a long time her own obliviousness to it…Sex Object is an antidote to the fun and flirty feminism of selfies and self-help.” — New Republic Author and Guardian US columnist Jessica Valenti has been leading the national conversation on gender and politics for over a decade. Now, in a darkly funny and bracing memoir, Valenti explores the toll that sexism takes from the every day to the existential. Sex Object explores the painful, funny, embarrassing, and sometimes illegal moments that shaped Valenti’s adolescence and young adulthood in New York City, revealing a much shakier inner life than the confident persona she has cultivated as one of the most recognizable feminists of her generation. In the tradition of writers like Joan Didion and Mary Karr, this literary memoir is sure to shock those already familiar with Valenti’s work and enthrall those who are just finding it.
Author: Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann
Publisher: Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann
Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann (commonly abbreviated as E. T. A. Hoffmann; born Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann; 24 January 1776 – 25 June 1822), was a Prussian Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. His stories form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera "The Tales of Hoffmann", in which Hoffmann appears (heavily fictionalized) as the hero. He is also the author of the novella "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King", on which the famous ballet "The Nutcracker" is based. The ballet "Coppélia" is based on two other stories that Hoffmann wrote, while Schumann's "Kreisleriana" is based on Hoffmann's character Johannes Kreisler. Hoffmann's stories were very influential during the 19th century, and he is one of the major authors of the Romantic movement.

Publisher: Barbara Budrich Esser
"Fritz Riemann succeeds in convincingly presenting his thesis that anxiety is human. He gently, carefully leads the reader to recognize his/her own anxieties and one-sidedness. The confrontation with personal problems which can be raised onto the level of consciousness helps the reader to understand himself and his fellow human beings better." "This book is a source of encouragement and instruction in the art of perceiving and accepting one's own anxieties, and if possible modifying them in a productive way."--BOOK JACKET.
Making Sense of Illness
Author: Robert A. Aronowitz
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In Making Sense of Illness Robert Aronowitz offers historical essays about how diseases change their meaning. Each of the diseases or etiologic hypotheses in this book has had a controversial and contested history: psychosomatic views of ulcerative colitis, twentieth century chronic fatigue syndromes, Lyme disease, angina pectoris, risk factors for coronary heart disease, and the type A hypothesis. By juxtaposing the history of the different diseases, the author shows how values and interests have determined research programs, public health activities, clinical decisions, and the patient's experience of illness.

The Book of Esther is one of the five Megillot. It tells the story of a Jewish girl in Persia, who becomes queen and saves her people from a genocide. The story of Esther forms the core of the Jewish festival of Purim. The commentary presents a literary analysis of the text, taking into account the inclusion and arrangement of different pericopes, and an analysis of the narration. Likewise, it will discuss the style, the syntax, and the vocabulary. The examination of the intellectual context of the book, biblical and extrabiblical textual traditions on which the book is based and with which it is in intertextual dialogue, leads to a discussion of the redactional process and the historical and social contexts in which the authors and redactors worked.
