Fähig zum Körperkontakt: Körperkontakt und by Fritz Jansen, Uta Streit

By Fritz Jansen, Uta Streit

Die Körperkontaktstörung ist eine der am meisten übersehenen Störungen. – Dabei zeigen empirische Befunde und Erfahrungen aus der Therapiepraxis zunehmend, dass es diese Störung gibt: die Unfähigkeit von infants und Kindern, Blick- oder Körperkontakt mit ihren Eltern aufzunehmen. – Die Befunde zeigen auch: Wenn die Fähigkeit zum Körperkontakt blockiert und damit die Bindungsfähigkeit gestört ist, steigt die Wahrscheinlichkeit von späteren Auffälligkeiten im Sozialverhalten erheblich. Und über das Sozialverhalten kann die Körperkontaktstörung Einfluss auf alle Lebensbereiche – wie etwa Spiel- und Lernverhalten, Umgang mit Gleichaltrigen oder Konfliktverhalten – nehmen, sie stellt damit eine weitflächige Bedrohung der seelischen Gesundheit dar.

Dieses Buch ist das erste Überblickswerk zu dieser „übersehenen Störung“: ein interdisziplinäres Autorenteam (u.a. Kinderärzte, Kinder- und Jugendlichen-Psychotherapeuten) erklärt theoretische Grundinformationen, empirische Ergebnisse, praktische Diagnose- und Behandlungsmöglichkeiten (letztere mit einem Schwerpunkt auf verhaltenstherapeutischer, kanalspezifischer Intervention und positiver Konfrontation mit Körperkontakt) sowie ethische Aspekte.

Zahlreiche Farbfotos aus realen Therapiesituationen geben Hilfestellung beim Erkennen und Behandeln der Körperkontaktstörung bei infants, Kindern und auch Erwachsenen. Für Therapeuten und Kinderärzte, aber auch für interessierte und betroffene Eltern.
