Wirklich psychisch bedingt?
Author: Ulrich Lamparter, Hans Ulrich Schmidt
Gerade bei seltenen primär somatischen Krankheitsbildern werden Symptome oft vorschnell als psychisch bedingt aufgefasst. Dadurch kommen die Patienten auf die »falsche Schiene«, werden manchmal langjährig diagnostisch verkannt und erhalten nicht die eigentlich notwendige Therapie. Anhand von realen Fällen aus der klinischen Praxis wird in diesem Handbuch das notwendige Wissen zu somatischen Differenzialdiagnosen vermittelt. - Hilft im klinischen Alltag: Alle Krankheitsbilder mit typischen Kasuistiken - Schafft einen Überblick: Gut strukturiertes und kompaktes Wissen zur Ausschlussdiagnostik - Schließt die Lücke: Ergänzt die einschlägigen Lehrbücher zur psychotherapeutischen Versorgung, Aus- und Weiterbildung Themen - Welche körperlichen Krankheiten können das psychogen anmutende Symptom des Patienten ebenfalls erklären? - Welche notwendigen und ökonomisch vertretbaren Maßnahmen zur Ausschlussdiagnostik dieser Krankheiten gibt es? - Wann ist eine Überweisung zu einem Spezialisten notwendig? - Wie kann es zur Fehldiagnose »psychisch bedingt« kommen? Psychologische und ärztliche Psychotherapeuten in Weiterbildung und Praxis, aber auch Studierende und Ärzte der Fachrichtungen Allgemeinmedizin, Innere Medizin und Neurologie finden in diesem Praxisbuch eine wertvolle Hilfe für eine korrekte und sinnvolle somato-psychische Diagnostik. Dieses Buch richtet sich an: - Ärzte und Psychologen in der psychotherapetischen Weiterbildung - psychologische Psychotherapeuten - Fachärzte für Psychosomatische Medizin - Fachärzte für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie - Studierende, Ärzte und Fachärzte für Allgemeinmedizin - Ärzte und Fachärzte für Innere Medizin - Ärzte und Fachärzte für Neurologie Aus dem Inhalt - Allgemeiner Teil: u.a.

Operationalized Psychodynamic Diagnosis (OPD) is a form of multiaxial diagnostic and classification system based on psychodynamic principles, analogous to those based on other principles such as DSM-IV and ICD-10. The OPD is based on five axes: I = experience of illness and prerequisites for treatment, II = interpersonal relations, III = conflict, IV = structure, and V = mental and psychosomatic disorders (in line with Chapter V (F) of the ICD-10). After an initial interview lasting 1–2 hours, the clinician (or researcher) can evaluate the patient’s psychodynamics according to these axes and enter them in the checklists and evaluation forms provided. The new version, OPD-2, has been developed from a purely diagnostic system to include a set of tools and procedures for treatment planning and for measuring change, as well as for determining the appropriate main focuses of treatment and developing appropriate treatment strategies.

What is “vegetronic”? A world where vegetables (and fruits, too) are at the center of delicious meals—where crisp broccoli is the star of a dinner party and where the flavors and textures of bright, just-picked ingredients are a source of inspiration. As much for carnivores as it is for vegetarians, Vegetronic is a playful and provocative examination of the potential of fresh produce. In this debut cookbook, Michelin-starred chef Alexis Gauthier introduces favorite ingredients from his kitchen—from fragrant rose petals to artichokes, from ripe tomatoes to overripe strawberries—and explains how to highlight their flavors in visually arresting, vegetable-intensive (but not always vegetarian) preparations. As arresting in their presentation as they are boldly flavored, these dishes can be as simple as peeling an orange or dicing a cucumber. Gauthier offers suggestions for coaxing something delicious from early- or late-in-season ingredients, like unyieldingly hard peaches or end-of-season fava beans and peas. Gauthier shows you how to harness eggplant’s velvety texture for a sweet-and-sour bruschetta, or how to make a pan-fried head of broccoli dressed with whole-grain mustard into a worthy main course. Even when a dish gets an extra bump from bacon, chicken broth, or lamb jus, Gauthier’s emphasis is always on the essential flavor of the vegetable or fruit that centers the dish as a whole. These 120 diverse recipes focus on the potential of fresh fruits and vegetables—a salad of warm asparagus ribbons set over ricotta gnocchi and crunchy bacon; a scattering of crisp apples over shockingly pink beets; a chilled fava bean soup topped with a silky poached egg; a pumpkin risotto made even creamier with a dash of mascarpone. So whether you’re a committed vegetarian or just an enthusiastic omnivore, Vegetronic will make you rethink the way you shop, cook, and eat all year long.
This book examines the physiological effect of therapeutic manipulation and touch on the human body. It presents the physiological, neurophysiological, and psychological basis of manual techniques, giving the therapist the background and theory needed to support practice, and helping therapists to provide safer and more effective treatment.
"Debbie Joffe Ellis demonstrates this influential and impactful approach to psychotherapy. Originated by Albert Ellis, rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) is based on the seemingly simple idea that it is not external events that make people happy or unhappy, but rather their internal thoughts about the events or themselves ... In this video, Dr. Joffe Ellis works with a woman in her 60s going through a divorce who is feeling stuck and hopeless. Dr. Joffe Ellis helps the client to recognize the difference between her thoughts and feelings and to begin to identify irrational thoughts and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts that will help her create new, positive, and realistic possibilities in her life."--Container.
Praise for "A History of Music in 50 Instruments," also in this series: ""Wilkinson's history unfolds like a symphonic work with instrument makers, composers and virtuosic performers picking up these incredible creations and exposing their beauty and capability. To open it up is to be instantly hooked." " -- Publishers Weekly "A History of Medicine in 50 Objects" takes readers on a 12,000-year journey to explore significant items that have advanced medical knowledge and practice. The fifty objects range from the everyday (a bottle of Aspirin) to singular medical advances (heart transplant pioneer Christian Bernard on the cover of "TIME" magazine). The objects are presented chronologically and described in two to four pages with illustrations, 150 beautiful archive images in all. Fact boxes note Location, Date, and Field, for example, epidemiology. Engaging text describes the artifacts in their social and cultural context, as well as their role in disease treatment and prevention. Centuries of invention and risk-taking have saved lives and advanced life expectancy. The first object is a Neolithic skull (ca 10,000 BCE) showing evidence of trephination, a hole deliberately cut into the skull of a living person and likely the first surgical practice. It was done widely well into the Renaissance, with surprising success, and is still done today, though rarely. The last object, like many others, was borne of tragedy. It is the protective gear designed for medical workers during the 2014 Ebola virus outbreak. The objects come in all shapes and sizes -- an X-ray diffraction image of a DNA molecule; the first tuberculosis sanatorium. They are the everyday and the extraordinary -- a thermometer; a thought-controlled prosthetic limb. They are of society and of controversy -- cigarette package health warnings; Sigmund Freud's couch. All have a fascinating and entertaining story to tell about medicine as it unfolded over millennia. "A History of Medicine in 50 Objects" is an essential choice for general and specialty collections. Like the other titles in The History of... series, it is an exceptional selection for reluctant readers.
Anorexia Nervosa and other eating disorders are arguably the most complex mental health problems that a child or adolescent may experience. Numbers seeking help are on the increase, and the complexity of these disorders challenges even the most experienced clinician. In this 2006 book, the experience of numerous practitioners with international reputations in the field is brought to bear on the broad range of issues a good clinician needs to know about, from the history of the disorder through to treatment, psychopharmacology, the psychotherapies, epidemiology, comorbidities, eating disorders in boys, and neuroimaging. The book is divided into parts detailing the scientific underpinnings, abnormal states, the evidence base for treatments, and finally public health issues, including service delivery models and perspectives on prognosis and outcomes. Clinicians encountering eating disorders will find this latest addition to the Cambridge Child and Adolescent Psychiatry series invaluable.
Handbook of Pain Syndromes
Author: Andrew R. Block, Ephrem Fernandez, Edwin Kremer
Publisher: Psychology Press
Pain syndromes involve a complex interaction of medical and psychological factors. In each syndrome unique physiological mechanisms are mediated by emotional states, personality traits, and environmental pressures to determine the nature and extent of pain complaints and pain-related disability. The Handbook addresses the complexities of chronic pain in three ways. Section I describes general concerns that cross-cut the different syndromes, such as the use of narcotic pain medications, the detection of deception and malingering, and the epidemiology of pain. Section II presents comprehensive reviews of a wide range of pain syndromes. Each covers basic pathophysiology, psychological factors found to influence the course of the syndrome, and syndrome-specific multidisciplinary treatment approaches. Most of the Section II chapters are coauthored by psychologists and physicians. Section III discusses pain in special populations, including the elderly and children. The Handbook is the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and integrated single-volume resource for all those professionally concerned with pain.
