Get Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie PDF

By Hans-Jürgen Möller, Gerd Laux, Hans-Peter Kapfhammer

Grandiose Vollständigkeit, höchstes fachliches Niveau, daraus resultierend ein beachtlicher Umfang sowie eine schlichte Gestaltung sind die auffälligsten Merkmale der Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie von Möller, Laux, Kapfhammer et al. Das beeindruckende Werk bildet die Referenz der deutschen Psychiatrieliteratur.

Hauptzielgruppe des Buches sind Psychiater und Psychologen, die hier natürlich viel Bekanntes wiederfinden, aber eben auch einen tiefen Einblick in die Tätigkeit und Behandlungsstrategien der jeweils anderen Berufsgruppe erhalten. Somit leistet Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie einen eminent wichtigen Beitrag zur Verständigung zwischen Medizinern und Psychologen. Übrigens findet sich gleich zu Beginn des Werkes ein aufschlussreicher historischer Abriss, der die Entstehung der immer noch spürbaren Kluft zwischen "Psychikern" und "Somatikern" erklärt.

Den Großteil des Bandes machen die Abschnitte zu den einzelnen Erkrankungsformen (zum Beispiel Intelligenzminderungen, organische psychische Störungen, Schizophrenien) aus, ergänzt durch allgemeine Kapitel zu Problemfeldern wie der Forensischen Psychiatrie. Der Schwerpunkt liegt spürbar auf der Therapie, die Diagnostik wird jeweils eher nur angerissen. So finden sich unter den psychologischen Testverfahren die HAWIE-Varianten intestine erklärt, andere Optionen wie etwa der IST-2000 werden aber nur erwähnt. Das ist jedoch nicht weiter tragisch, da vorbildliche Literaturverzeichnisse auf die einschlägigen Werke oder Spezifikationen verweisen: Wer wirklich selbst testet, verfügt auch über die Unterlagen und das Know-how.

Die Therapieempfehlungen sind auf dem neuesten Stand; aber das Beste ist, dass hier psychotherapeutische und klassische medizinische (zum Beispiel medikamentöse) Verfahren ebenbürtig berücksichtigt werden -- ein enormer Fortschritt und deutlicher Unterschied zu bisherigen Psychiatrielehrbüchern, welche die Psychotherapie stiefmütterlich behandeln. Psychologen erhalten mit Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie ein exzellentes Nachschlagewerk, das die Vorgehensweise der Kollegen Ärzte obvious macht und keine Frage offen lässt. Psychiatern sei das Buch zur Begleitung der Psychotherapie-Weiterbildung empfohlen. Es gehört prinzipiell in jede Praxisbibliothek. --Dipl.-Psych. Wolfgang Schulz
