Perversion (Analyse der Psyche und Psychotherapie) (German by Wolfgang Berner

By Wolfgang Berner

Das Studium der Perversionen eröffnete Freud tiefe Einsichten in die Funktionsweise von Sexualität und Erotik, die für seine Theoriebildung über die menschliche Psyche von entscheidender Bedeutung waren. Viele dieser Einsichten haben bis heute ihre Gültigkeit, viele wurden inzwischen ergänzt und differenziert. Heute wird der Begriff der Perversion im Kontext der Psychiatrie kaum mehr verwendet, sondern zunehmend durch die Bezeichnungen 'Paraphilie' oder 'Störung der Sexualpräferenz' ersetzt. Dennoch bezeichnen diese Termini keine identischen Phänomene, wie der Autor in der Auseinandersetzung mit den Gründen der Neudefinition anschaulich darlegt.

Ein zentrales Anliegen des Bandes ist es, zu zeigen, dass und wie die klassische Psychoanalyse – etwa bei Fetischismus, Exhibitionismus oder Sadismus – hilfreich sein kann. Dabei werden die für eine Perversionstherapie notwendigen Parameter betrachtet und auch weitere mögliche Therapieformen vorgestellt.
