A overview of the guides, facing the morphology of the cartilages of the tracheo-bronchial tree, indicates how scarce they're and the way fragmentary the contributions in accordance with study. remoted elements in simple terms of the bronchial tree were investigated, more often than not in unmarried specimens or small sequence. Anatomical textbooks simply country that the trachea and major bronchi are supported by way of earrings and the extra distal branches via abnormal, circumferentially put plates which turn into smaller in the direction of the outer edge, till they disappear within the bronchioli. it truly is instantaneously visible that this old-time view isn't just superficial, however it leaves one thoroughly ignorant concerning the web site the place jewelry stop and plates start. No info is offered in regards to the association of cartilages round the bifurcations of the most bronchi and contradictory descriptions are given in regards to the cartilaginous structure of the lobar bronchi. A extra looking learn finds that cartilages are rarely pointed out within the large volume of literature on bronchial anatomy which has collected considering the fact that 1880. it truly is consequently now not exagerated to assert that the learn of this topic has been grossly neglected.

Ein Buch, das Mut macht: Die neue Psychologie des posttraumatischen Wachstums

Schicksalsschläge müssen uns nicht aus der Bahn werfen. Sie können vielmehr neue Stärken und Lebensperspektiven eröffnen und einen Reifungsprozess anstoßen. Dieses hoffnungsvolle Fazit zieht Stephen Joseph, einer der Wegbereiter der Psychotraumatologie, aus seiner jahrzehntelangen Arbeit mit traumatisierten Menschen. Sein Buch schlägt einen weiten Bogen: Es schildert Fallgeschichten, macht psychologische Studien nachvollziehbar, zeigt, welche Spuren erschütternde Erlebnisse im Gehirn hinterlassen, und beleuchtet, wie es Menschen gelingt – und wie guy sie therapeutisch dabei unterstützen kann –, gestärkt aus emotionalen Katastrophen hervorzugehen.

Tsunamis, Gewaltverbrechen, tragische Verkehrsunfälle – solche Erfahrungen, so heißt es, zeichnen die Betroffenen fürs Leben und bürden ihnen posttraumatische Belastungsstörungen auf. Doch der Psychologe Stephen Joseph kommt nach 20 Jahren Forschung zu einem anderen Schluss: Derartige Traumata können zu „Motoren der inneren Veränderung“ werden. Auf Fallstudien gestützt schildert er den emotionalen Tribut traumatischer Erlebnisse, die zugrunde liegende Biologie, die Erscheinungsformen der Resilienz und die große Bandbreite der verfügbaren Therapien … Dies ist ein weitgefasster und plausibler Blick auf die Psychologie des Überlebens.

Warum im Leid auch eine likelihood liegen kann

Was geschieht, wenn wir mit dem Schlimmsten konfrontiert sind? Gemeinhin herrscht die Vorstellung, ein Trauma zeichne uns für das restliche Leben – mit oft verheerenden Folgen für speedy alle Aspekte unseres Alltags, von unserem Schlafzyklus über unsere sozialen Beziehungen bis hin zu unserem Lebenswillen. Doch wie der overseas renommierte Psychologe und Psychotherapeut Stephen Joseph in diesem Buch zeigt, setzen traumatische Erfahrungen oft auch optimistic Entwicklungen in Gang und liefern Anstöße zu einer Verbesserung des Lebens: Die Betroffenen erleben gefestigte persönliche Beziehungen, lernen das Leben stärker wertzuschätzen und gelangen zu neuer innerer Stärke. Sie machen eine Erfahrung, die die Psychologen als posttraumatisches Wachstum bezeichnen. Josephs breit angelegtes Buch führt die Weisheit antiker Philosophen, die Einsichten von Evolutionsbiologen, den Optimismus der positiven Psychologen und seine eigenen bahnbrechenden Studien zusammen, um Wege aufzuzeigen, wie Menschen angesichts dramatischer Veränderungen und Widrigkeiten neuen Lebenssinn und neue Lebensziele finden können.

Durch das Buch ziehen sich bewegende Geschichten von Menschen, die trotz großen Leids und schmerzlicher Verluste nicht aufgaben … Joseph verleiht den Berühmten und den Unbekannten gleichermaßen eine Stimme, wenn er Geschichten vom Überleben und Aufblühen in persönlichen wie globalen Krisen erzählt. Dabei vermittelt das Buch tiefe Kenntnisse über die Dynamik des posttraumatischen Wachstums und verwandter Theorien. Es stellt eine seltene Meisterleistung dar, ein Buch zu schreiben, das sowohl für die allgemeine Leserschaft als auch für Fachleute und Praktiker reizvoll und nützlich ist. Joseph ist es gelungen.

She likes tea, sews, attracts on papers and is a self-taught grasp of tying and untying knots. yet she isn't a artful girl of the DIY set: she is Wattana, an orangutan who lives within the Jardin des Plantes Zoo in Paris. And it really is in Paris the place Chris Herzfeld first encounters and turns into inspired by means of Wattana and her extraordinary talents with knots. In Wattana: An Orangutan in Paris Herzfeld tells not just Wattana’s attention-grabbing tale, but additionally the tale of orangutans and different primates—including bonobos, chimpanzees, and gorillas—in captivity.

Offering a uniquely intimate examine the day-by-day lives of captive nice apes, Herzfeld makes use of Wattana’s existence to track the heritage of orangutans from their first arrival in Europe in 1776 to the population of the Zoo of Paris and different zoos this present day. She presents an in depth examine the conduct, technical information, and abilities of Wattana, who, remarkably, makes use of strings, paper rolls, rope, or even items of wooden to make things.  and she or he thoughtfully explores how apes individually—and frequently with ingenuity—come to phrases with and adapt to their captive environments and caretakers. via those tales, Wattana sympathetically unearths the extreme psychology and distinct personalities of significant apes in addition to the interconnections among animal and human lives, particularly in zoos.

Scientists are expecting that orangutans will disappear from the wild by way of 2030, and captive animals like Wattana could, hence, supply our greatest probability to appreciate and relish their excellent intelligence and skills. Wattana, the finished maker of knots, is the hero of this poignant publication, to be able to enthrall someone all in favour of the lives of our primate cousins.
