Jetzt nur für kurze Zeit: Preiswerte Jubiläumsedition! Der amerikanische Psychotherapeut und Autor auflagenstarker Romane ist zugleich Verfasser des Lehrbuches zur Gruppenpsychotherapie. Es versteht sich als praktische Anleitung für Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen, die mit Gruppen arbeiten. Es reflektiert zugleich aber auch die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen des Fachs. Der Fülle der Gruppentherapien wird Irvin Yalom gerecht, indem er sie nach ihren Methoden und »therapeutischen Faktoren« ordnet. Fallbeispiele aus mehr als 2000 Gruppensitzungen machen den Text so anschaulich, dass auch ein praktisch wenig erfahrener Therapeut die besonderen Schwierigkeiten einer Gruppenbehandlung meistern kann. Ein Buch, das sich seit über zwei Jahrzehnten als anerkanntes Lehrbuch halten kann, benötigt von Zeit zu Zeit eine gründliche Überarbeitung. In diese Ausgabe, die teilweise neu übersetzt wurde, gingen zahlreiche Anpassungskorrekturen ein. Überholte Therapieansätze wurden gestrichen, viele neue theoretische und methodische Erkenntnisse wurden integriert. Am grundsätzlichen Aufbau des Buches und an seiner Zielrichtung wurde jedoch nicht gerüttelt.

Over the last three decades, family therapy has revolutionized the mental health field, changing the way human problems are conceived and therapy is conducted. In concert with the dynamic growth of family therapy, the field of family therapy training and supervision has also expanded enormously yielding many new ideas and skills. Yet, until now, few books have been devoted to it, and no single volume has attempted to relate the full breadth of this growing field in terms of its conceptual and theoretical expansion as well as its practical application. HANDBOOK OF FAMILY THERAPY TRAINING AND SUPERVISION fills this need by presenting a truly comprehensive view of this dynamic area. To accomplish this broad yet in-depth scope, editors Liddle, Breunlin, and Schwartz have assembled 30 highly acclaimed authorities to author chapters in their respective areas of expertise. For further clarification, the editors have included segues that introduce and analyze each of the book's four major sections providing the reader with an overview of the section, highlights of themes that run through it, and discussion of the issues raised in a way that ties the chapters together. The book opens with a presentation of the unique and innovative approaches to training and supervision that have evolved in each separate school of family therapy. Offering a panoramic view of the entire field of family therapy, these seven chapters allow for fascinating comparisons among the different schools regarding the process by which ideas about therapy evolve into training techniques and philosophies. Section II follows with an explication of the pragmatics of family therapy supervision. Helping family therapy trainers avoid and anticipate the common mistakes involved with supervision, the skills described in this section create an atmosphere conducive to learning and maintaining a working trainer-trainee relationship, and finally, for training of supervisors. Practical guidelines for using live and video supervision are included. Section III features family therapy trainers in such diverse fields as psychiatry, psychology, family medicine, social work, nursing, free-standing and academic family therapy programs, who describe the problems and advantages they encounter teaching these new ideas within their idiosyncratic contexts. The book closes with a section that includes reflections on the field by such innovative and respected leaders as Cloe Madanes and Jay Haley. Among topics covered are perspectives and recommendations for researchers evaluating family therapy, practical advice for incorporating a cultural perspective into training programs, feedback on the experience of live supervision from trainees' perspectives. An appendix follows that provides over 400 references organized by subject for easy reference. Given the level and scope of this extraordinary text, FAMILY THERAPY TRAINING AND SUPERVISION is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in teaching, learning, or simply appreciating family therapy.

"This book focuses on students, a pragmatic approach to treatment, regard for multidisciplinary perspectives, and respect for the influence of families on clients. Chapter 1 identifies concerns that new therapists frequently have, such as building confidence in their clinical work. Chapters 2-6 follow the usual time sequence of therapy--from initial contact with clients, to comprehensive assessment, to treatment planning and intervention. Chapters 7-10 deal with specific clinical situations based on presenting problems and the nature of client families. We examine major issues and approaches for working with children and adolescents, older adults, couples, and families that are struggling with serious mental illness. Chapter 11 highlights some common obstacles all therapists encounter, and provides concrete ideas on how to get unstuck when treatment is not progressing. Chapter 12 focuses on an often overlooked part of therapy--termination. In Chapter 13, we conclude the book by looking at emerging issues within family therapy"--

Für alle gängigen Therapieformen stellt die Einbeziehung therapeutischer Geschichten und Metaphern eine Bereicherung dar. Denn sie wirken direkt auf das Unbewusste. Das Handbuch bietet für alle häufig vorkommenden Störungen Texte an, die direkt übernommen oder auch abgewandelt werden können, und es erklärt, wie man sie sinnvoll einsetzt. Geschichten und Metaphern wirken auf die Seele, denn sie sprechen unbewusste Instanzen in uns an. Die Lösung eines Problems wird dem Unbewussten überlassen, dessen Suchmöglichkeiten nachweislich reicher sind als das rationale Denken. Das »Handbuch des therapeutischen Erzählens« ist die erste umfassende Veröffentlichung zu dieser kreativen Interventionsform. Sie bietet zweierlei: - eine Fülle vom Autor selbst erdachter therapeutischer Metaphern und Geschichten, aufgeschlüsselt nach Problemstellungen und therapeutischen Zielen. Sie lassen sich wie Bausteine in die eigene therapeutische Arbeit integrieren. - einen Methodenteil, der z. B. Aufschluss darüber gibt, wie Suggestion funktioniert, welche Erzähltypen wie wirken und wie Geschichten dialogisch entwickelt werden. Psychotherapeutinnen und Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen und in Beratung Tätige erwartet ein Fundus an Texten, die nach individuellem Bedarf abgewandelt werden können und die therapeutische Arbeit elegant ergänzen.
