Von Psychopathen wie Charles Manson oder Serienmördern wie Jack the Ripper geht eine unheimliche Faszination aus. Doch woher kommt sie? Und warum verdrängen wir so gern das alltäglichere Böse – von den eigenen Gewaltphantasien bis zum Machtmissbrauch im Büro? Die Kriminalpsychologin und Bestsellerautorin Julia Shaw taucht das Phänomen des Bösen in neues Licht. Shaw sucht und findet das Böse nicht nur in den Gehirnen von Massenmördern, sondern in jedem von uns. Und sie erläutert mithilfe psychologischer Fallstudien und neuester neurowissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse, wie wir uns mit unserer dunklen Seite versöhnen. Ein augenöffnendes Buch, das die vertrauten Kategorien von Gut und Böse völlig über den Haufen wirft.

ISBN: 1136234349

Page: 400

Crime is a topic that is of considerable interest to policy-makers, politicians and the public alike. We want to know what factors can explain the nature and prevalence of crime in society and use this knowledge to better develop approaches for managing criminal behaviour. This book provides a comprehensive overview of approaches to understanding crime and criminal behaviour, with a focus on psychological perspectives. A wide range of different types of criminal behaviour are considered, including juvenile crime, violent offending, sexual offending, collective violence and drug use. For each type of offence a clear overview of key conceptual and methodological issues is provided, along with a detailed consideration of the major theoretical approaches that have been developed. The book concludes by considering how our theoretical understanding of crime can inform our responses to criminal behaviour in terms of punishment, prevention and rehabilitation. Key features of the book include: • an in-depth coverage of a broad range of different types of criminal behaviour; • inclusion of a diverse range of different theoretical perspectives; • accessibly written, with extensive use of case studies, boxes and activities; • an extensive use of up-to-date references that highlight the current state of knowledge in the field of criminal psychology. This book should be of interest to students, academics, researchers and practitioners with an interest in criminal behaviour, and is particularly suitable for undergraduate courses in criminal psychology, forensic psychology and psychological criminology.

Trotz der Bedeutung der Gruppe der Gleichaltrigen für die Entwicklung von Kindern ist die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern bisher viel zu wenig erforscht und verbreitet. Alfons Aichinger und Walter Holl haben in über 30jähriger Arbeit die Grundideen und Interventionsmöglichkeiten des Psychodramas speziell für die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern weiterentwickelt. Mit vielen Beispielen beschreiben sie die sinnvolle Zusammensetzung der Gruppe, das symbolische Spiel der Kinder, Realitätsbezug und die Leitungstechnik einer solchen Gruppe. Das Buch ist eine Einladung an KollegInnen aller therapeutischer Schulen, eigene Denk- und Handlungsansätze für die therapeutische Arbeit mit Kindern zu entwickeln.
