Perspektiven aus Entwicklungspsychologie und Psychotherapie integrieren Trotz der offenkundigen Berührungspunkte zwischen Entwicklungspsychologie und Psychotherapie führten beide Disziplinen lange Zeit ein Dasein als "feindliche Schwestern". Dabei sind bestimmte pathologische Veränderungen erst mit entwicklungspsychologischen Kenntnissen verständlich. Auch die Entwicklungspsychologie profitiert von den Erkenntnissen psychotherapeutischer Behandlung und gelangt so zu einem besseren Verständnis von Entwicklungsprozessen. Aus dem Inhalt: Bindungsentwicklung, Familiäre Entwicklungsprozesse im Beziehungskontext, Väter – notwendig, überflüssig oder sogar schädlich für die Entwicklung ihrer Kinder? Geschwisterbeziehung zwischen Verbundenheit und Individuation. Dieses Buch trägt zur Integration der Entwicklungspsychologie und Psychotherapie – speziell der analytischen bzw. tiefenpsychologischen Psychotherapie – bei. Komplett überarbeitet und aktualisiert.
This is the first book that reviews both empirical and clinical applications of how couples jointly cope with stress - dyadic coping - around the globe. The Systemic-Transactional Stress Model (STM), developed by co-editor Guy Bodenmann, is used as a consistent framework so readers can better appreciate the contrasts and similarities across the fourteen cultures represented in the book. Written by scholars from the particular culture, each chapter provides a conceptual review of the dyadic coping research conducted in their specific cultures, and also provides empirical and clinical recommendations. Additional contributions include how to measure dyadic coping, so others can apply the STM model in other contexts. The latest treatment approaches for therapy and prevention are also highlighted, making this book ideal for professionals interested in expanding their cultural competence when working with couples from various backgrounds. Highlights include: -How couples in different cultures deal with stress and how values and traditions affect dyadic stress and coping. -Global applications, especially to couples in the regions highlighted in the book -- the U.S (including one chapter on Latino couples in the U.S.)., Australia, China, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Portugal, Romania, and Switzerland. -Factors encountered in examining dyadic coping using the STM Model including measurement and assessment issues. -Suggestions for making treatment, prevention, and intervention programs for couples more effective. Ideal for relationship researchers, psychologists, mental health counselors, social workers, and advanced students who work with couples dealing with stress. This book is also appropriate for advanced courses on interpersonal processes, close relationships, stress and coping, multicultural issues in marriage and family therapy or counseling, or family systems, taught in a variety of social science disciplines.
Die Risiken innerhalb der Eltern-Kind-Beziehung gelten neben biologischen und sozialen Faktoren als häufigste Wirkmechanismen für das Entstehen von psychischen bzw. Verhaltensauffälligkeiten von Kindern. Vaidilutė Asisi untersucht die Beziehung des Kindes sowohl zur Mutter als auch zum Vater und identifiziert dabei jene Verhaltensmerkmale, die eine gelungene Interaktion von einer Interaktionsstörung unterscheiden und somit unmittelbar mit der psychosozialen Entwicklung des Kindes einhergehen. Die Autorin zeigt bestehende Zusammenhänge anhand einer Stichprobe von 2- bis 31⁄2-jährigen Kindern und deren Eltern. Hinweise auf Interaktionsstörungen sind u. a. die durch die Eltern berichteten kindlichen Probleme, der aus der Beziehung mit dem Kind entstehende Stress sowie mangelnde soziale Unterstützung.
This book presents a satisfying combination of thoughtful research on the management of stress, together with specific techniques which are developed to actually help individuals reduce stress in day-to-day situations. The first section describes the authors' approach, in which stressors are considered to be coping tasks, each embedded within specific situational realities. The second part of the book develops two practical tools for measuring and controlling stress. The third section applies these specific techniques to important areas of clinical and health psychology, and in the final chapter a new conceptual system to analyze adequate coping behavior is presented. In this intriguing and new framework a response to stress is considered as appropriate if it is rational, effective, and consistent with cost-benefit relationships. The principles developed here can be used to help both clinicians and informed lay people analyze and reduce the level of stress experienced by individuals.

As a researcher whose work focuses largely on the causes and conse quences of unwanted pregnancy, I may appear to be an unlikely candidate to write a foreword to a book on infertility. Yet, many of the themes that emerge in the study of unwanted pregnancy are also apparent in the study of infertility. Moreover, this volume is an important contribution to the literature on fertility, women's health issues, and health psychology in general, all topics with which I have been closely involved over the past two decades. Neither pregnancy nor its absence is inherently desirable: The occurrence of a pregnancy can be met with joy or despair, and its absence can be a cause of relief or anguish. Whether or not these states are wanted, the conscious and unconscious meanings attached to pregnancy and in fertility, the responses of others, the perceived implications of these states, and one's expectations for the future all are critical factors in determining an individual's response. In addition, both unwanted pregnancy and failure to conceive can be socially stigmatized, evoking both overt and subtle social disapproval. Fur ther, they involve not only the woman, but her partner, and potentially the extended family. Finally, both of these reproductive issues have been poorly researched. Because both are emotionally charged and socially stigmatized events, they are difficult to study. Much of the early literature relied on anecdotal or case reports.

This is the first book to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of evidence-based relationship and marriage education (RME) programs. Readers are introduced to the best practices for designing, implementing, and evaluating effective RME programs to better prepare them to teach clients how to have healthy intimate relationships. Noted contributors from various disciplines examine current programs and best practices, often by the original developers themselves. Readers learn to critically appraise approaches and design and implement effective, evidence-based programs in the future. Examples and discussion questions encourage readers to examine issues and apply what they have learned. The conceptual material in Parts I & II provides critical guidance for practitioners who wish to develop, implement, and evaluate RME programs in various settings. Chapters in Parts III & IV follow a consistent structure so readers can more easily compare programs-- program overview and history, theoretical foundations, needs assessment and target audience, program goals & objectives, curriculum issues, cultural Implications, evidence based research and evaluation, and additional resources. This book reflects what the editor has learned from teaching relationship development and family life education courses over the past decade and includes the key information that students need to become competent professionals. Highlights of the book’s coverage include: Comprehensive summary of effective evidence-based RME training programs in one volume. Prepares readers for professional practice as a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) by highlighting the fundamentals of developing RME programs. Describes the challenges associated with RME program evaluation. The book opens with a historical overview of RME development. It is followed by 20 chapters divided in six parts. The initial four chapters focus on fundamentals of relationship and marriage education --program development, required training, delivery systems, and implementation. The three chapters in Part II consider important conceptual and theoretical frameworks used in RME. Part III considers best practices in inventory based programs while Part IV examines six skills-based programs. The chapters in Parts III and IV consider program overview and history, theoretical foundations, needs assessment and target audience, program goals and objectives, curriculum issues, cultural implications, evidence-based research & evaluation, and additional resources. This content covers four categories of effective programs -- design and content, relevance, delivery and implementation, and assessment and quality assurance. Part V presents evidence-based RME with diverse groups and Part VI reviews future directions. Intended for use in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in relationship and marriage education, family life education, marriage and relationship counseling/therapy, intimate relationships, relationship development, or home/school/community services taught in human development and family studies, psychology, social work, sociology, religion, and more, this ground-breaking book also serves as a resource for practitioners, therapists, counselors, clergy members, and policy makers interested in evidence based RME programs and those seeking to become Certified Family Life Educators or preparing for a career in RME.
Describes a unique therapeutic approach developed to treat couples confronting the painful challenge of infertility. Therapists learn how they can help clients acknowledge and accept the possibility of not having genetically related children; understand the increasing array of available treatment options; and assess the potential gains, pitfalls, and psychological effects of each one.
After the worldwide success of 'The World Book of Happiness', Leo Bormans spent two years studying the international scientific research on love. He succeeded in engaging the most brilliant scientists and unexpected newcomers to describe in their own words what we finally know about love. They explain the system and unveil the mystery. Their words will probably hit you like Cupid's arrows. But remember, Cupid is the son of the gods Venus (love) and Mars (war). His arrows are dipped in both sweetness and conflict, in both harmony and misunderstanding.

"This volume addresses the construct of dyadic coping between people in intimate relationships. By strict definition, dyadic coping involves both partners and is the interplay between the stress signals of one partner and the coping reactions of the other or a genuine act of common (shared) coping. As the chapters in this volume illustrate, the construct of dyadic coping is nuanced, interpreted differently by the chapter authors to include processes such as everyday communication, interpersonal conflict, joint problem solving, the giving and receiving of emotional support, and dealing with life stressors as a we, not just two Is. The primary aim of this book is to present current approaches on stress and coping in couples, to bring American and European contributions together, and to stimulate further fruitful scientific exchange on this topic of growing importance. Intended primarily for scholars in the field of marital research, stress and coping research, and interpersonal relationships, the book also serves as a useful reader for practitioners. As the idea of dyadic coping is a new and innovative approach in the area of marital therapy, this volume should be of interest to therapists as well"--Preface.

The study of psychotherapy has often been limited to the ways in which cognitive and behavioral processes promote personal change. Introducing a ground breaking perspective, Greenberg and Safran's compelling new work argues that the presently-felt experience of emotional material in therapy forms a vital underpinning in the generation of change. By including emotion as a psychotherapeutic catalyst, the book offers a more complete and encompassing approach to the process of psychotherapy than has ever before been available. EMOTION IN PSYCHOTHERAPY draws from the literature of both clinical and experimental psychology to provide a critical review of theory and research on the role of emotion in the process of change. Providing a general theoretical framework for understanding the impact of affect in therapy, this unique volume describes specific change events in which emotions enhance the achievement of therapeutic goals. Case examples and extensive transcripts vividly portray a variety of affective modes--such as completing emotional expression, accessing previously unacknowledged feelings, and restructuring emotions--and illustrate in clear, practical terms how certain processes apply to particular patient problems. Moving beyond the standard approaches to therapy, this volume offers an integrated approach that carefully consider's the client's state in the session that must be amenable to intervention as well as any given intervention and its resulting changes. Its attention to both the theoretical and practical considerations of implementing a balanced psychotherapeutic approach--combining behavioral, cognitive, and affective modes--makes this an invaluable volume for practitioners and researchers of all orientations. The book will be of particular interest to clinicians seeking integrative approaches to psychotherapy, and to academic psychologists concerned with expanding the paradigm of cognitive psychology.
