"Psychiatrie ist die Lehre von den psychischen Krankheiten und deren Behandlung. Ihren Ausgangspunkt und ihre Grundlage bildet die wissenschaftliche Erkenntnis des Wesens der Geistesstorungen. In der Losung dieser Aufgabe waren schon die Arzte des Altertums so weit vorgeschritten, dass sie das Irresein mit gewissen korperlichen Storungen in Verbindung brachten, namentlich mit dem Fieber und mit Veranderungen der Korpersafte. Leider gingen diese bereits zu Lehrgebauden entwickelten Anschauungen mit dem Zusammenbruch der alten Kultur fast vollig wieder verloren. Dafur drangen im Mittelalter einerseits scholastisch -philosophische, andererseits religios -aberglaubische Vorstellungen in die Auffassung des Irreseins ein und verdrangten rasch die vorhandenen Ansatze eines naturwissenschaftlichen Verstandnisses. Die Geistesstorung war nicht mehr Krankheit, sondern Werk des Teufels, Strafe des Himmels, bisweilen auch gottliche Verzuckung. Nicht der Arzt beschaftigte sich mehr mit der Erforschung und Behandlung des Seelengestorten, sondern der Priester suchte ihm die bosen Geister zu vertreiben; das Volk betete ihn als Heiligen an, und die Hexenrichter Hessen ihn in der Folterkammer wie auf dem Scheiterhaufen fur seine vermeintlichen, wahnhaften Sunden bussen. Mit der Wiedererneuerung der Wissenschaften und insbesondere mit dem Aufschwunge der Medizin begann allmahlich auch das Interesse der Arzte sich wieder den Geisteskranken zuzuwenden. Allein es dauerte Jahrhunderte, bevor die klare Erkenntnis sich uberall Geltung zu erringen vermochte, dass die Seelenstorungen nur vom arztlichen Standpunkte aus richtig erforscht und erkannt werden konnen." [...] Vorliegender erster Band dieser zweiteiligen Reihe befasst sich mit den Ursachen des Irreseins, den Erscheinungen, Verlauf, Ausgange und Dauer des Irreseins, sowie der Behandlung. Auch heute gehort dieses Werk noch zu den lesenswerten Titeln uber die Psychiatrie. Der Autor dieses Werkes, Emil Kraepelin (1856 bis 1926) war ein de"

A Comprehensive Guide for People who Struggle with Sex Addiction and Those who Want to Help Them
Author: Paula Hall
Sex addiction is on the increase - in the media as well as in the therapy room. But while more and more people seek help for their compulsive sexual behaviours, there is still confusion and debate about whether the condition even exists. Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction explains why an increasing number of people are inadvertently finding their lives devastated by their sexual behaviours. It explores the latest scientific understandings and research into why pornography, cyber sex, visiting sex workers, fetishes and multiple affairs can come to control some people's lives to the point that they can't stop. It explains how sex addiction is not a moral issue, as some assume, but a health issue that we as a society need to start taking seriously. Throughout the book are the revealing statistics from the UK's latest survey on sex addiction. Three hundred and fifty people who struggle with this condition have bravely and candidly shared their experience for the benefit of their fellow sufferers and those who choose to help them. This book contains support and advice for both the clinician and for those who suffer from sex addiction. As well as practical guidance and techniques for stopping compulsive behaviours and preventing relapse, there is also a thorough exploration of the deeper underlying causes and how these must be addressed.
The Surprising Truth About Addiction Treatment--and How to Get Help That Works
Author: Anne M. Fletcher
An eye-opening tour of the addiction treatment industry explores the gap between what should happen and what does What happens inside drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and how rehab works are a mystery to those outside the industry – and sometimes even to those inside it. Anne M. Fletcher is a trusted New York Times bestselling health and medical writer who visited 15 addiction treatment centers—from outpatient programs for the indigent to famous celebrity rehabs; from the sites of renowned Twelve-Step centers to several unconventional programs—to find out what really happens. What she reveals ranges from inspirational to irresponsible, and, in some cases, potentially dangerous. Real Stories: As always with her books, Fletcher gets the inside story by turning to real people who “have been there,” interviewing more than 100 individuals whose compelling stories illustrate serious issues facing people in rehab and endemic in the rehab industry today. Connected Writer and Researcher who has earned the respect (and cooperation) of experts throughout the fields she’s taken on. Inside Rehab is no exception—Fletcher has interviewed more than 100 professionals working in the field, including a mix of rehab staffers and administrators as well as leading academics. Rehab is constantly covered in the media, as celebrities battle their drug and alcohol issues in the spotlight and reality TV puts recovery in prime time. Addiction is no longer only a personal struggle—it’s a pop culture phenomenon. Myth Busting: Fletcher exposes twelve supposed facts for the falsehoods they are, including “rehab is necessary for most people to recover from addictions;” “highly trained professionals provide most of the treatment in addiction programs;” and “drugs should not be used to treat a drug addict.” Fletcher’s most important finding is the alarming discrepancy between the treatments being employed at many rehab centers and the treatments recommended by leading experts and supported by scientific research. Guidance and Practical Solutions: Inside Rehab also highlights what is working, spotlights state-of-the-art programs and practices, and offers advice and guidance for people seeking quality care and treatment for themselves or those they care about. Inside Rehab is the first book to give readers a thoughtful, sensitive, and bracingly honest insider’s view of the drug and alcohol rehab industry in America. For people seeking quality care for themselves or a loved one, Inside Rehab is essential reading, offering a wealth of accurate information and wise guidance.
