Bereits in der Antike ist ein besonderes Naheverhältnis von Philosophie und Psychotherapie konstatiert worden. Das Buch des Philosophen und Psychotherapeuten Martin Poltrum stellt die Grundlegung einer therapierelevanten, klinischen Philosophie über den emblems des Schönen dar. Es zeigt auf, dass philosophische Überlegungen einen wohltuenden Effekt auf die Seele haben und wie philosophische Gespräche Teil psychotherapeutischer Praxis werden können. Mit der idealistischen Ästhetiktradition geht die Untersuchung davon aus, dass die Kunst das große Stimulans des Lebens, das Ästhetische das Versprechen des Glücks und die Schönheit Vorschein der Freiheit ist. Damit sind die Kategorien genannt, die eine Klinische Philosophie zu reflektieren hat, welche in der Philosophie des Abendlandes ein Medikament für die traumatisierte Psyche sieht.

Hierbij wordt uitgegaan van de nieuwste inzichten uit de DSM-5. Achtereenvolgens wordt aandacht besteed aan: de samenhang tussen vroegkinderlijke traumatisering en de ontwikkeling van een persoonlijkheidsstoornis aan de hand van verschillende theoretische modellen.

Een zorgvuldige aanpak van persoonlijkheidsproblemen betekent dat aandacht wordt besteed aan de nare ervaringen die hebben geleid tot een negatief zelfbeeld en de daaruit volgende destructieve patronen, de coping. Deze traumatische ervaringen die tijdens de jeugdjaren zijn opgedaan, zoals affectieve verwaarlozing, mishandeling, seksueel misbruik, verlating of anderszins kunnen goed worden behandeld. Door een traumagerichte behandeling, in combinatie met andere methodieken, zal vervolgens de inadequate hantering van pressure en akelige herinneringen, de coping, kunnen veranderen.

We benadrukken daarbij het belang om overzicht te krijgen over deze complexe behandelingen door goede diagnostiek, het vaststellen van de samenhang tussen de symptomatologie en de levensgeschiedenis van de cliënt en een werkbare therapeutische relatie. De stappen die nodig zijn om te komen tot een casusconceptualisatie en behandelplan worden helder beschreven. Aan de hand van de ‘interventiecirkel’ worden proof established behandeltechnieken besproken. Tot slot wordt in het laatste deel ingegaan op de gevolgen van persoonlijkheidsproblematiek voor de therapeutische relatie en de behandelaar. 

Dit boek is bij uitstek geschikt voor psychologen, psychotherapeuten en psychiaters (en zij die daartoe in opleiding zijn) die werken of gaan werken met mensen met complexe trauma- en persoonlijkheidsproblematiek.

Con questo nuovo libro Miguel Benasayag riprende alla radice los angeles celebre diagnosi tracciata con "L’epoca delle passioni tristi". Se l. a. nostra è l’epoca delle passioni tristi, qual è il paesaggio sociale che permette alle passioni tristi di prosperare e di imporsi a tutti noi? E come modificare quel paesaggio in keeping with inaugurare los angeles possibilità di costruire nuovi legami e nuove esperienze condivise? Benasayag fotografa una società segnata da una solitudine essenziale e devastata dall’individualismo neoliberista, dal mito della prestazione illimitata, dalla legge della competizione senza quartiere. Nella vita pubblica are available quella privata, sul luogo di lavoro come negli affetti più intimi, prospera una sofferenza senza parole, una sofferenza che l’individuo non sa riconoscere come malessere, non sa ricondurre all’angoscia che prova di fronte a un mondo di relazioni lacerate, non sa decifrare come irrinunciabile desiderio di sottrarsi a una domanda di functionality spietata e insostenibile.

È questa solitudine fondamentale, ci spiega Benasayag, a generare i sintomi silenziosi del nostro pace: gli attacchi di panico, l’impotenza ignara e quasi soddisfatta, l. a. depressione che viviamo senza dolore e al limite senza tristezza. Di fronte a questo paesaggio l. a. mossa di Benasayag è duplice. Da un lato, denuncia l’ambiguità e l. a. collusione dei saperi e delle pratiche che dovrebbero farsi carico di quella solitudine; dall’altro, sviluppa una proposta radicalmente alternativa alla folle normalità neoliberista.
