In this essential self-help guide, you will learn: - How clinical perfectionism manifests itself - Effective coping strategies with invaluable guidance on how to avoid future relapse OVERCOMING self-help guides use clinically-proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.

ISBN: 389806851X
Release Date: 2008
Genre:

Angst ist ein unabweisbares Element des Lebens. Um unser Verhalten im privaten Alltag und am Arbeitsplatz, um unsere Reaktionen in Konflikten und nicht zuletzt auf politische Umstande genauer zu verstehen, mussen wir uberall mit unserer Angst rechnen. Mit Angst vor Isolation oder Uberwaltigung, vor Versagen oder Beschamung, vor unserem Gewissen, vor Elend oder Tod. Zu achten haben wir auch auf die verwirrenden Effekte, wenn in Partnerschaften gegensatzliche Angsttypen wie Trennungsangst und Umklammerungsangst aufeinanderprallen. Je hartnackiger Angst verleugnet wird, umso leichter bahnt sie sich mithilfe unbewusster Mechanismen schadliche Wege. In 40 Jahren psychoanalytischer Praxis und Forschung hat sich Horst-Eberhard Richter durchgehend mit dem Thema Angst beschaftigt. In diesem Buch zeigt er anhand vieler anschaulicher Beispiele, wie Angst entsteht, in welchen durchsichtigen oder verschlusselten Formen sie sich auspragt, welche krankhaften, aber auch welche heilvollen Reaktionen sie auszulosen vermag. Dank seiner verstandlichen Schreibweise ist Umgang mit Angst auch Laien zu empfehlen."
