Angst ist ein unabweisbares Element des Lebens. Um unser Verhalten im privaten Alltag und am Arbeitsplatz, um unsere Reaktionen in Konflikten und nicht zuletzt auf politische Umstande genauer zu verstehen, mussen wir uberall mit unserer Angst rechnen. Mit Angst vor Isolation oder Uberwaltigung, vor Versagen oder Beschamung, vor unserem Gewissen, vor Elend oder Tod. Zu achten haben wir auch auf die verwirrenden Effekte, wenn in Partnerschaften gegensatzliche Angsttypen wie Trennungsangst und Umklammerungsangst aufeinanderprallen. Je hartnackiger Angst verleugnet wird, umso leichter bahnt sie sich mithilfe unbewusster Mechanismen schadliche Wege. In 40 Jahren psychoanalytischer Praxis und Forschung hat sich Horst-Eberhard Richter durchgehend mit dem Thema Angst beschaftigt. In diesem Buch zeigt er anhand vieler anschaulicher Beispiele, wie Angst entsteht, in welchen durchsichtigen oder verschlusselten Formen sie sich auspragt, welche krankhaften, aber auch welche heilvollen Reaktionen sie auszulosen vermag. Dank seiner verstandlichen Schreibweise ist Umgang mit Angst auch Laien zu empfehlen."

Obsessive compulsive disorder affects between 1 and 3 per cent of the population. Ranging from relatively mild symptoms to being a profoundly disabling disorder, it is a condition that is amenable to modern treatments. This book examines the evidence for and potential role of a range of treatment methods, from CBT to pharmacological approaches. It asks what an individual can do to help themselves, and how friends and relatives can assist in the recovery process. Although firmly based in clinical research, it is written in a jargon-free and accessible style to help provide deep understanding of the disorder. Personal narratives and case studies of people living with OCD feature to illustrate points, and the book considers emerging research and the future of approaches to OCD. Built upon decades of experience, this guide will inform and support adults and young people living with OCD, as well as carers, families and health professionals.
