Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.

Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Borderline Personality Disorder

Author: American Psychiatric Association

The most common personality disorder here and abroad, borderline personality disorder is often misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed. Left untreated, it causes marked distress and impairment in social, occupational, and role functioning, with high rates of self-destructive behavior (attempted and completed suicide). Its pervasive pattern of impulsivity and instability of interpersonal relationships, affects, and self-image begins in early adulthood and presents in a variety of contexts. Developed primarily by psychiatrists in active clinical practice, the revised edition of this popular work offers an updated synthesis of current scientific knowledge and rational clinical practice for patients with borderline personality disorder -- with the important caveat that clinicians should consider, but not limit themselves to, the treatments recommended here. The summary of treatment recommendations is keyed according to the level of confidence with which each recommendation is made and coded to show the nature of its supporting evidence. Highly informative and easy to use, this eminently practical volume is organized into three major parts: Part A contains treatment recommendations (Section I, treatment summaries; Section II, treatment plans; Section III, special clinical considerations; and Section IV, risk management issues during treatment), Part B presents the evidence underlying these treatment recommendations (Section V, an overview of DSM-IV-TR criteria, prevalence rates, and natural history and course; and Section VI, a review of existing treatment literature), and Part C summarizes those areas in which better research data are needed. Remarkably concise and comprehensive, this practice guideline continues to be an indispensable reference for every clinician who treats patients with this heterogeneous and complex disorder.

Dieses umfassende Lehrbuch für Studenten und Dozenten der Neurobiologie sowie an der Hirnforschung Interessierter aus Medizin und Psychologie ist die erste integrierende Darstellung der modernen Neurowissenschaften. Zahlreiche Disziplinen versuchen gemeinsam, menschliches Denken und Verhalten sowie deren Störungen auf biologische Strukturen und Vorgänge bzw. ihre Veränderung zurückzuführen. Der 'Kandel/Schwartz/Jessell' setzt nur (Oberstufen-)Schulwissen voraus und entwickelt aus der umfassenden Präsentation der molekularen und zellulären Grundeinheiten und -funktionen des Nervensystems geschickt das Verständnis von Wahrnehmungsprozessen, der Bewegungssteuerung und schließlich der höhreren geistigen Hirnleistungen wie Sprache, Lernen und Gedächtnis. Um das von Studierenden nachgefragte Buch auch weiterhin lieferbar halten zu können, wurde es schwarzweiß gedruckt.
