Neurose - an der Grenze zwischen krank und gesund: Eine by Alfred Ribi

By Alfred Ribi

Freud sagte sogar: „Jedermann ist etwas neurotisch.“ guy kann natürlich etwas, was once in der Bevölkerung dermaßen verbreitet ist, nicht als krankhaft, d.h. als Abweichung von der Norm bezeichnen. Kann guy es deshalb aber von „Gesundsein“ abgrenzen? So wenig wie eine Frau ein bisschen schwanger sein kann, so wenig kann einer ein bisschen neurotisch sein. Die Jung‘sche Auffassung von der Neurose hilft, diagnostisch Klarheit zu schaffen. Dieses Buch ist zunächst ein Buch für Fachleute, es ist aber auch ein „Aufklärungsbuch“ für interessierte Laien, das die veralteten Vorurteile über das Wesen der Neurose abbauen hilft. Eine Ideengeschichte zu den Grundfragen des Menschseins: Jede psychologische Theorie folgt zunächst einer Idee. In der Betrachtung der Ideengeschichte um die Neurose versteht guy nicht nur die Ent- und Verwicklungen rund um dieses Thema, sondern auch die verschiedenen Fach-Auffassungen der Neurose. Die ICD-10 als internationale Klassifikation psychischer Störungen hat es aufgegeben, einen psychodynamischen Ansatz zu verwenden und beschränkt sich auf die Symptomatologie. In der DSM-IV wird auf den Begriff der Neurose ganz verzichtet. Alfred Ribi sieht dies als Rückschritt – auch im Sinne des Klienten. Sein Ansatz: Erst mit Kenntnis der Dynamik in der Geschichte der Neurosenauffassung kann eine Diskussion zwischen den verschiedenen Therapieschulen aufgenommen werden. Geschrieben für Psychologen und Psychiater, Absolventen einer Jung'schen Ausbildung, interessierte Laien.
