Stress und Angst losen bei Tieren ebenso wie bei uns Menschen (auch wir sind nur" Tiere) korperliche und psychische Schaden aus. Auf die korperlichen Folgen soll in diesem Buch nur am Rande eingegangen werden. Vor allem geht es um den Einfluss, den Stress und Angst auf das Gehirn und das Verhalten ausuben. Hier soll eine Brucke geschlagen werden zwischen wissenschaftlicher Forschung und dem taglichen Leben. Auf der einen Seite gibt es viele Forschungsergebnisse aus den Bereichen Tierverhalten, Angst- und Stressforschung; auf der anderen Seite treten immer mehr Probleme bei unseren Hunden auf, sie leiden unter Stress und verhalten sich haufig aggressiv oder angstlich. Unterschiedliche Methoden und Ideologien, wie man mit diesen tierischen" Problemen umzugehen hat, sorgen fur eine grosse Verunsicherung bei den Hundebesitzern. Mit diesem Buch soll der Versuch unternommen werden, die wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse in die tagliche Routine und regelmassigen Ubungen zu ubersetzen, um so ein effektiveres Training zu ermogliche

Since 1979, when the second edition of Erika Fromm and Ronald E. Shor's classic Hypnosis was published, the field of experimental hypnosis has expanded enormously. Filling the need for a definitive reference that incorporates the plethora of ideas and methodologies that have emerged over the last 13 years, this completely new volume continues in the Fromm-Shor tradition by presenting an authoritative survey of contemporary hypnosis research, methodology, and theory. To provide the reader with an even-handed, complete treatment of all currently prominent research areas and theories in one book, chapter authors were selected to represent the entire range of the field. Divided into three parts, the book first reviews both the theoretical perspectives and history of hypnosis research. Chapters in Part II cover empirically based theories with discussion of dissociation, psychopathology and psychological regression, as well as explication of a social-psychological approach and an ego-psychological theory. Surveying the broad areas of hypnosis research, Part III presents chapters on an array of topics including research design and considerations, phenomenology, neuropsychophysiology, and methodology in psychological research. Situational and personality correlates of hypnotic responsiveness and the effects of hypnotic procedures on memory are examined, and the relationship between hypnosis and creativity is discussed. Other subjects covered are the experiential method, self-hypnosis and personality, clinical research, and the measurement of hypnotic ability. In addition, the editors have gathered the book's over 1,450 references into one large bibliographic section, making this an ideal resource that will be used often and easily. Veteran researchers and theoreticians will find the chapters on theoretical paradigms and programmatic research in this scholarly resource both informative and challenging. Students and beginning researchers will find CONTEMPORARY HYPNOSIS RESEARCH to be the perfect hands-on tool, providing them with conceptual underpinnings, methodological perspectives, and scholarly documentation. Psychologists, social workers, physicians, and other clinicians who wish to gain better empirical and theoretical understanding of the field will find it an excellent reference.
Emphasizing spiritual values and the quest for meaning in life in its approach to the neurotic behavior, by the founder of logotherapy.
Author: Marianne Horsdal
Both interest in and understanding of narrative analysis had developed rapidly in recent years and is now a mainstream element of research across many disciplines. In the groundbreaking Telling Lives: Exploring dimensions of narratives, the author illustrates as many facets as possible of the stories people tell about their lives. She demonstrates the interconnectedness between engagements in narrative research and shows that the theoretical understanding of the nature of narrative is bound up with the methods for biographical narrative research. Through a combination of three independent, connected narrative dimensions, an embodied, a cognitive and a socio-cultural narrative, the author focuses on life story narratives as symbolic expressions where cultural constructions allow for interpersonal interaction. This book also outlines the influence cultural and social environments have upon our own unique narrative memories coupled with our own physical movements in space. The author concludes that the telling and exchanging of human narratives is the primary way of making sense and creating meaning of our own being. This book brings together neuro-physiology, philosophical perspectives and research data and methodology to formulate a new understanding of narrative analysis. It will also help you to produce and analyze your own narrative interviews and perform biographical research. Innovative and thought-provoking, this book will cut across disciplines and be of interest to all students at advanced undergraduate and post-graduate level and researchers in Education, Social Sciences and Humanities.
This is really two books in one: a valuable reference resource, and a groundbreaking case study that represents a new approach to constructional semantics. It presents a detailed descriptive survey, using extensive examples collected from the Internet, of German verb constructions in which the expressions durch (‘through’), über (‘over’), unter (‘under’), and um (‘around’) occur either as inseparable verb prefixes or as separable verb particles. Based on that evidence, the author argues that the prefixed verb constructions and particle verb constructions themselves have meaning, and that this meaning involves subjective construal processes rather than objective information. The constructions prompt us to distribute focal attention according to patterns that can be articulated in terms of Talmy’s notion of “perspectival modes”. Among the other topics that play an important role in the analysis are incremental themes, reflexive trajectors, fictive motion, “multi-directional paths”, and “accusative landmarks”.

BESTSELLING BOOK In this inspirational guide, Wayne Dyer, the author of the phenomenal bestsellers Wisdom of the Ages, Pulling Your Own Strings, and Your Erroneous Zones, reveals seven beliefs central to working miracles in our everyday lives. When most of us think of magic, we picture a man in a black cape sawing a woman in half, or a sleight-of-hand card trick. But there's another kind of magic – real magic – that can enrich your life. According to Dyer, real magic means creating miracles in everyday life. Quitting smoking or drinking, achieving new Job success, or finding a happy relationship – these are all miracles because they transcend our perceived limitations. From "creating a miracle mind-set" and achieving change in the areas of personal health, prosperity, and fulfilling love relationships to believing in the magic of miracles on a global scale, Dyer shows us that miracles within our reach and within our own minds. In Real Magic, Dyer teaches us how to achieve a higher level of consciousness. He asks us to imagine what would make us happy, then offers specific strategies for attaining these goals. In every aspect of our individual lives – physical health, finances, intimate relationships, and personal identity – there is always room for a miracle or two. And with Dyer's help, each and every one of us can be a miracle worker.
