Psychische Erkrankungen umfassend behandeln – mit Yoga Dieses Buch ist eine wissenschaftlich fundierte und allgemein verständliche Anleitung, wie einfache Übungen des Yoga die seelische Gesundheit verbessern können. Stress, Zeitdruck und überhöhte Erwartungen führen dazu, dass sich immer mehr Menschen überfordert fühlen. Symptome der chronischen Erschöpfung, innere Anspannungszustände bis hin zu depressiven Verstimmungen, Ängsten oder Burnout können die Folge sein. Yoga hilft dabei, seelische Erkrankungen bis hin zu traumatischem Erleben unterstützend zu behandeln und physische Anzeichen der Dauerbelastung wie Kopf- und Rückenschmerzen oder Reizdarm behutsam zu reduzieren. Die in diesem Buch vorgestellten Meditationen, Atemtechniken und körperlichen Übungen kann jeder Interessierte lernen. Die Autorin zeigt die Zusammenhänge zwischen körperlichen und psychischen Prozessen auch auf neurologischer Ebene auf und gibt damit eine Antwort auf die Frage: Wie wirkt Yoga eigentlich? Auf der beiliegenden DVD werden die beschriebenen Übungen demonstriert.

Die Bedingungen für eine gelungene Sozialisation und die Entwicklung reflexiver Fähigkeiten sowie emotionaler und sozialer Kompetenzen stellen hohe Anforderungen an Jugendliche. Um ihnen trotz wirkenden Belastungen ein gesundes Aufwachsen zu ermöglichen, werden Potenziale und Ressourcen für den langfristigen Erhalt von psychischer Gesundheit zunehmend untersucht. Unter der Berücksichtigung von aktuellen Forschungsdesideraten wird überprüft, ob das aktive Spielen eines Instrumentes durch Transfereffekte auf soziale Fähigkeiten und Verhaltensweisen die subjektive Wahrnehmung von psychischen Beschwerden systematisch verändert und dadurch zu einer vermehrten Widerstandsfähigkeit gegenüber Belastungen führt. Die Befunde geben empirische Hinweise auf Gruppenunterschiede von Schülerinnen und Schülern der Klassenstufe 7 mit und ohne Instrumentalspiel hinsichtlich der Bedeutsamkeit der sozialen Integration zum Erhalt von psychischer Gesundheit. Nele Groß, Jahrgang 1984, studierte Erziehungswissenschaft mit dem Fachschwerpunkt Sonderpädagogik (Magister) an der Universität Hamburg. Ihr Promotionsstudium absolvierte sie von 2013-2016 an der Universität Hamburg im Rahmen des JeKi-Forschungsprojektes Wirkungen und langfristige Effekte musikalischer Angebote im Arbeitsbereich Evaluation von Bildungssystemen. Zurzeit ist sie als Projektkoordinatorin im Projekt Evaluation der Sprachförderung im Fachunterricht der Sekundarstufe I im BiSS-Programm an der Universität Hamburg tätig. Ihre Forschungsinteressen liegen in den Bereichen Schülergesundheit, Transferforschung, Resilienzfaktoren sowie Schulentwicklung und internationale Schulleistungsstudien.

These days it’s hard to count on the world outside. So it’s vital to grow strengths inside like grit, gratitude, and compassion—the key to resilience, and to lasting well-being in a changing world. True resilience is much more than enduring terrible conditions. We need resilience every day to raise a family, work at a job, cope with stress, deal with health problems, navigate issues with others, heal from old pain, and simply keep on going. With his trademark blend of neuroscience, mindfulness, and positive psychology, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Rick Hanson shows you how to develop twelve vital inner strengths hardwired into your own nervous system. Then no matter what life throws at you, you’ll be able to feel less stressed, pursue opportunities with confidence, and stay calm and centered in the face of adversity. This practical guide is full of concrete suggestions, experiential practices, personal examples, and insights into the brain. It includes effective ways to interact with others and to repair and deepen important relationships. Warm, encouraging, and down-to-earth, Dr. Hanson’s step-by-step approach is grounded in the science of positive neuroplasticity. He explains how to overcome the brain’s negativity bias, release painful thoughts and feelings, and replace them with self-compassion, self-worth, joy, and inner peace.

The authors of this spirited book don't believe that oblivion is necessarily the destiny of urban areas. Instead, they believe that intelligent planning and visionary leadership can help cities meet the impending crises, and look to existing initiatives in cities around the world. Rather than responding with fear (as a legion of doomsaying prognosticators have done), they choose hope. This is not a book filled with "blue sky" theory (although blue skies will be a welcome result of its recommendations). Rather, it is packed with practical ideas, some of which are already working in cities today. It frankly admits that our cities have problems that will worsen if they are not addressed, but it suggests that these problems are solvable. And the time to begin solving them is now.

'Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disasters' provides city administrators with exactly what they need to know about the complex and compelling challenges of climate change. The book helps local governments create training, capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable, resilient communities. A step-by-step self-assessment challenges policymakers to think about the resources needed to combat natural disasters through an innovative hot spot risk and vulnerability identifi cation tool. This primer is unique from other resources in its treatment of climate change using a dual-track approach that integrates both mitigation (lowering contributions to greenhouse gases) and adaptation (preparing for impacts of climate change) with disaster risk management. The book is relevant both to cities that are just beginning to think about climate change as well as those that already have well established policies, institutions, and strategies in place. By providing a range of city-level examples of sound practices around the world, the book demonstrates that there are many practical actions that cities can take to build resilience to climate change and natural disasters.

This monograph provides a complete description of resilient control theory. It unifies the methods for developing resilient controllers and filters for a class of uncertain dynamical systems and reports recent advances in design methodologies. The book presents an introductory and comprehensive treatment of resilient controller design methods placing great emphasis on the derivation of necessary and sufficient design conditions and on the use of linear matrix inequalities as a convenient computational tool. The book can be used as a graduate-level textbook in control engineering or applied mathematics as well as a reference for practicing engineers, researchers and students.

A typically pessimistic view of aging is that it leads to a steady decline in physical and mental abilities. In this volume leading gerontologists and geriatric researchers explore the immense potential of older adults to overcome the challenges of old age and pursue active lives with renewed vitality. The contributors believe that resilience capacities diminishing with old age is a misconception and argue that individuals may successfully capitalize on their existing resources, skills and cognitive processes in order to achieve new learning, continuing growth, and enhanced life-satisfaction. By identifying useful psychological resources such as social connectedness, personal engagement and commitment, openness to new experiences, social support and sustained cognitive activity, the authors present a balanced picture of resilient aging. Older adults, while coping with adversity and losses, can be helped to maintain a complementary focus on psychological strengths, positive emotions, and regenerative capacities to achieve continued growth and healthy longevity.

This paper explores factors behind Canadian banks' relative resilience in the ongoing credit turmoil. We identify two main causes: a higher share of depository funding (vs. wholesale funding) in liabilities, and a number of regulatory and structural factors in the Canadian market that reduced banks' incentives to take excessive risks. The robust predictive power of the depository funding ratio is confirmed in a multivariate analysis of the performance of 72 largest commercial banks in OECD countries during the turmoil.
