The Effects of Psychological Therapy, Second Enlarged Edition focuses on trends, methodologies, and technologies used in determining the effects of psychological therapy on neurotic disorders, behavior therapy, and psychotherapy. The manuscript first discusses conventional outcome research, need for evaluations, and Eysenck's argument. The book also focuses on the spontaneous remission of neurotic disorders and effects of psychoanalytic treatment, including spontaneous remission rates in childhood, the American Psychoanalytic Association survey, Malan’s contribution, and the Menninger clinic report. The text ponders on the effects of psychotherapy, Rogerian psychotherapy, and psychotherapy with psychotic patients. The manuscript also takes a look at behavior therapy, as well as external and internal validity of studies on systematic desensitazion, controlled-treatment outcome studies, and outcome of behavior therapy. Meichenbaum's self-instructional training, cognitive restructuring methods, and Beck’s cognitive therapy are discussed. The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers interested in the effects of psychological therapy.

Als anthropologische Konstanten werfen Traum und Schlaf ein bezeichnendes Licht auf unterschiedliche Kulturen bzw. Gesellschaften und historische Epochen. Gleichzeitig hat der Gegenstand ‚Traum‘ nichts von seiner Ungreifbarkeit und Rätselhaftigkeit verloren. Unter dem leitenden Gesichtspunkt einer ‚Kulturarbeit‘ am Traum (und Schlaf) schlägt dieses Handbuch einen Bogen von den antiken Kulturen bis in die Gegenwart und bietet Kapitel zu den unterschiedlichen soziokulturellen und historischen Erscheinungsweisen sowie zu ästhetischen Produktionen in der Auseinandersetzung mit Schlaf und Traum z.B. in Literatur, Kunst und Musik. Weitere Kapitel präsentieren wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse über Traum und Schlaf von der Freudschen Traumdeutung über experimentelle Schlaf- und Traumforschung bis hin zu hirnbiologischen sowie kognitionswissenschaftlichen Erklärungsansätzen.

An updated edition of Moorcroft’s 2003 volume, this new work reflects recent scientific advances in the area of sleep and disorders. As in the previous book, Understanding Sleep and Dreaming, this new edition serves as a compact overview for now sleep experts, covering physiological sleep mechanisms, brain function, psychological ramifications of sleep, dimensions of dreaming, and clinical disorders associated with sleep. It is accessibly written with specially boxed material that enhances the text. It also offers a good foundation for those who will continue sleep studies, while at the same time offering enough information for those who will apply this knowledge in other ways such as clinicians private practices or researchers. It is an excellent text for courses on sleep at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The section on sleep labs will show how computers have replaced former models of data collection and storage; includes the new area of the genetics of sleep; add a new box on teen sleep; insert a new box on the emerging information about how technology use affects sleep; emphasize the controversy over rampart, wide-spread sleep deprivation; and include a new box covering the connection between sleep loss and weight gain. Additional inclusions might incorporate current “hot topics,” such as the effect of shift work on sleep, sleep problems in adolescents, and nightmare treatment for people suffering from PTSD.
