The effects of psychotherapy by Stanley Rachman( Book )

25 editions published between 1971 and 1974 in English and German and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Therapeuten aller Art entwickeln ein ziemlich genaues und erstaunlich sicheres GefUhl hinsichtlich der Veranderung, die sie im Patienten be wirken oder nicht bewirken. Dieses GefUhl korrespondiert aber nicht notwendigerweise mit den tatsachlichen Veranderungen. Es gibt ge niigend Untersuchungen, die zeigen, daB Therapeuten oft dazu neigen, die Wirksamkeit ihrer Behandlung eher zu iiberschiitzen als zu gering einzuschiitzen. Die GefUhle oder Verhaitensweisen, mit denen sich der Therapeut befaBt, sind offensichtlich so subtil oder komplex, daB sie sich der Beurteilung des Therapeuten zurn groBen Teil entziehen. In diesem Milieu kommt es nach bekannten psychologischen Regeln leicht zur Fehleinschiitzung, die zwei Funktionen haben kann. Einmal fUhrt sie zur Selbstbestatigung des Therapeuten und zur Sicherstellung der kontinuierlichen Bereitwilligkeit zur Ausiibung schwieriger therapeuti scher Aufgaben. Zum anderen wird es gerade deswegen schwerfallen, den Therapeuten zu einer kritischen Untersuchung und Bewertung seiner selbst zu bringen. So ist es nicht verwunderlich, daB die Publikation von HANS-JURGEN EYSENCK iiber die Bewertung der Effekte der Psychotherapie im Jahre 1952 dem Bruch eines sorgfaltig gehegten Tabus gleichkam. Seine der zeitige Feststellung enthielt die provokative These, daB die Besserungs rate in der Behandlung von Neurotikern fUr die Psychoanalyse 44% betragt, fUr die eklektisch durchgefUhrte Psychotherapie 64% und fUr den allgemeinen praktischen Arzt 72%. Es ist nicht nur diese inverse Beziehung zwischen psychotherapeutischer Spezialkenntnis und Wirk samkeit der Behandlung, die eine sehr intensive Kritik der gesamten Psychotherapie auslosten
The treatment of obsessions by Stanley Rachman( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past decade, important advances have been made in understanding the spectrum of obsessive-compulsive disorders; however, most advances in treatment have been directed at the comulsive element of the behaviour. It is estimated that for as many as one in three patients presenting with obseessive-compulsive disorder, the primary problem is the obsessions. Obsessions are repetitive, unwanted thoughts, images or impulses. This book describes how to conduct the first, specific cognitive treatment for obsessions, and provides a comprehensive account of the underlying cognitive theory and supporting experimental evidence. The book discusses patient assessment procedures, provides a detailed explanation of the specific technique, anticipates possible patient reactions and suggests tactics for dealing with them, and explores methods for assessing progress. Throughout, there are helpful case studies to illustrate aspects of the technique and the book closes with a 'tool kit' of forms and charts to allow the therapist to plan and record treatment sessions. This will be essential reading for all members of the mental health team involved in applying cognitive therapies, as well as those in patient support organizations and academics interested in abnormal psychologies."--Publisher's website
