Sleep disorders cause considerable morbidity and distress in the aging population. By highlighting the clinical diagnosis and management of sleep disorders, this volume provides a valuable resource for all those involved in health care of older individuals. The changes in sleep patterns that occur during normal aging are described, followed by authoritative chapters on the presentation of various age-related sleep disorders. The book deals with the range of therapeutic measures available for managing these disorders and gives insight to potential areas of research that have emerged in the last few years, such as the study of circadian rhythms in later life, sleep patterns associated with co-morbidities and the use of quality-of-life measurement tools to determine sleep quality as we age. This volume is relevant to sleep disorders specialists, psychiatrists, geriatricians and gerontologists, and any professionals and researchers working in the interdisciplinary areas of sleep and aging.

Im Zuge der zunehmenden Zahl und des Anteils alter Menschen nimmt auch die Zahl älterer Menschen mit kognitiven Beeinträchtigungen und psychischen Störungen zu. Damit wächst auch der - schon heute nicht ausreichend gedeckte - Bedarf an gerontopsychiatrischer und alterspsychotherapeutischer Versorgung. Die drei Beiträge dieses Bandes widmen sich vor diesem Hintergrund der gegenwärtigen Entwicklung und den zukünftigen Anforderungen an die Gerontopsychiatrie, insbesondere in Bezug auf Diagnostik, Therapie und Betreuung Demenzkranker, sowie an die gerontopsychosomatische Medizin und die Alterspsychotherapie in Deutschland. Die Beiträge bemängeln unter anderem die oft fehlende oder erst sehr spät erfolgende Diagnostik und nicht immer adäquate oder einseitig körperorientierte Behandlung. Sie sprechen sich für einen Ausbau und eine bessere Vernetzung der Versorgungsebenen und eine stärkere Verankerung der gerontopsychiatrischen und psychotherapeutischen Kompetenz in der gesundheitlichen und pflegerischen Versorgung aus.

When community and family support systems are weak or unavailable, and when internal resources fail, populations that struggle with chronic, persistent, acute, and/or unexpected problems become vulnerable to physical, cognitive, emotional, and social deterioration. Yet despite numerous risk factors, a large number of vulnerable people do live happy and productive lives. This best-selling handbook examines not only risk and vulnerability factors in disadvantaged populations but also resilience and protective strategies for managing and overcoming adversity. This third edition reflects new demographic data, research findings, and theoretical developments and accounts for changing economic and political realities, including immigration and health care policy reforms. Contributors have expanded their essays to include practice with individuals, families, and groups, and new chapters consider working with military members and their families, victims and survivors of terrorism and torture, bullied children, and young men of color.

stematiker apostrophiert, deren Leistungen bestenfalls als überholt angese hen werden, nicht selten jedoch auch als Hemmschuh für die neuen Seh weisen einer psychodynamischen Psychiatrie mit tiefen psychologischen Theorien, Lehranalysen, Selbsterfahrungsgruppen u. a. m. Unberücksichtigt bleibt dabei meist, daß viele der neuen Lehren trotz der Betonung von Be griffen wie "Seele" oder "psychisch" im Grunde nur maskierte Formen einer modischen identitätstheoretischen Philosophie materialistischer Couleur darstellen (Koehler 1984). Gewiß ist gegen eine psychodynamische Ausbildung des psychiatri schen Nachwuchses wenig einzuwenden, sofern eine Verabsolutierung des gewählten Standpunktes vermieden wird. Leider stellen die zweifellos erfor derlichen tiefen psychologischen Aspekte noch keinen selbstverständlichen Teil einer integralen psychiatrischen Ausbildung an den deutschen Klini ken dar, in denen der junge Assistenzarzt sein diagnostisches und therapeu tisches Wissen erwirbt (Mombour 1984). Deshalb sieht er sich fast überall gezwungen, unter zum Teil erheblichen Schwierigkeiten seinen Zusatztitel für Psychotherapie "außer Haus" zu erwerben. Dessen schwere Zugäng lichkeit, die vor allem institutionell bedingt ist, mag zur Tendenz beitragen, daß die psychodynamische Sehweise eine herausgehobene Position erhält und in der Vorstellung gerade der psychiatrischen Anfanger leicht zum do minierenden Denkansatz gerät.

Psychotherapists are increasingly expected to incorporate the spiritual as well as the psychological dimension in their professional work. Therapists also are increasingly required to utilize evidence-based practices and demonstrate the effectiveness of their practice. An ever-increasing number of spiritually-oriented psychotherapy books attest to its importance but, unlike these books that primarily focus on the therapist's spiritual awareness, the second edition of Spirituality in Clinical Practice addresses the actual practice of spiritually oriented psychotherapy from the beginning to end. Dr. Len Sperry, master therapist and researcher, emphasizes the therapeutic processes in spiritually oriented psychotherapy with individual chapters on: the therapeutic relationship assessment and case conceptualization intervention evaluation and termination and culturally and ethically sensitive interventions. The days of training therapists to be spiritually aware and sensitive to client needs are over; therapists are now expected to practice spiritually sensitive psychotherapy in a competent manner from the first session to termination. Dr. Sperry organizes his text around this central focus point and, as in the original edition, continues to provide a concise, theory-based framework for understanding the spiritual dimension. Readers can use this framework as the basis for competently integrating spirituality in an effective, evidence-based psychotherapy practice.

White matter lesions have been always challenging for general as well as neuroradiologits. Any disease process in the brain or body can affect white matter, making it very difficult to pinpoint the diagnosis. However the application of the proper algorithmic approach, pattern of distribution, and study of the morphology of these lesions makes it possible to limit the differential diagnosis and, many times, pinpoint specific diagnosis. Advancement of various imaging techniques predominately in MR (MR spectroscopy, MR perfusion, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). functional MR) along with PET has further improved our understanding of these disease processes. However, most of these techniques are new and not well understood by every physician. This issue will cover the topics necessary to master these techniques.
