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.

Many of the current debates about validity in psychiatry and psychology are predicated on the unexpected failure to validate commonly used diagnostic categories. The recognition of this failure has resulted in, what Thomas Kuhn calls, a period of extraordinary science in which validation problems are given increased weight, alternatives are proposed, methodologies are debated, and philosophical and historical analyses are seen as more relevant than usual. In this important new book in the IPPP series, a group of leading thinkers in psychiatry, psychology, and philosophy offer alternative perspectives that address both the scientific and clinical aspects of psychiatric validation, emphasizing throughout their philosophical and historical considerations. This is a book that all psychiatrists, as well as philosophers with an interest in psychiatry, will find thought provoking and valuable.

The Perspectives approach to psychiatry focuses on four aspects of psychiatric practice and research: disease, dimensional, behavior, and lifestory. In Systematic Psychiatric Evaluation, Drs. Margaret S. Chisolm and Constantine G. Lyketsos underscore the benefits of this approach, showing how it improves clinicians' abilities to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients. Drs. Chisolm and Lyketsos use increasingly complex case histories to help the mental health provider evaluate patients demonstrating symptoms of bipolar disorder, psychosis, suicidal ideation, depression, eating disorders, and cutting, among other conditions. The book also includes an exercise that simulates the Perspectives approach side by side with traditional methods, revealing the advantages of a method that engages not one but four points of view. Featuring a foreword by Drs. Paul R. McHugh and Phillip R. Slavney, the originators of the Perspectives approach, this innovative book will be used in psychiatric training programs as well as by practicing mental health clinicians. -- Dinah Miller, MD

Over the last two decades, stalking has received increasingly widespread attention. The establishment of anti-stalking legislation has helped to spur interest in stalking research and the forensic assessment of stalkers. Popular representations of stalking have made the public more aware of this phenomenon. It has long been the responsibility of mental health professionals to provide assessments of and treatment for stalkers and their victims, and as criminal cases involving defendants charged with stalking become more common, it is now also the responsibility of legal professionals to be knowledgeable about psychiatric aspects of stalking behavior and the risks that so often must be minimized through legal action or a combination of clinical and legal interventions. This volume provides a thorough overview of current scientific and clinical research about stalking, along with practical guidance and original commentary from the Psychiatry and the Law Committee of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry, an organization recognized for its contributions to mental health literature. In addition to covering the most widely discussed scientific topics related to stalking, including classification of stalking behaviors, risk assessment and risk management of stalkers, and the stalking experience from the perspective of victims, this book examines celebrity and special target stalking, cyberstalking, forensic assessment, and juvenile and adolescent stalking. Stalking: Psychiatric Perspectives and Practical Approaches provides a novel and comprehensive contribution to a field in need of an up-to-date text, written from the vantage point of forensic psychiatrists who encounter stalkers and their victims in their distinct roles as treatment providers and forensic evaluators. The prism of stalking and the risks involved continue to fascinate and frighten. In pursuit of rounded coverage, the authors have incorporated findings from numerous studies and analyzed these findings from several theoretical perspectives. Every chapter has been written from the vantage point of a committee of nationally recognized forensic psychiatrists who offer their perspectives on this fascinating but complex topic. Mental health professionals, members of the judiciary, law enforcement professionals, media personnel, and the public will no doubt find this text to be an informative and useful resource.
