By Gaby Bleichhardt, Florian Weck

Meist können wir uns mit rationalen Argumenten und notfalls einem Arztbesuch beruhigen. Menschen mit Krankheitsangst oder sogar Hypochondrie jedoch (6-10 % in der Allgemeinbevölkerung) leiden stark unter diesen unbegründeten Ängsten. Selbst die ärztliche Versicherung, dass sie gesund seien, bietet keine dauerhafte Beruhigung. Auch in der Psychotherapie müssen sich Therapeuten häufig mit hypochondrischen Symptomen auseinandersetzen: sie treten z.B. oft gemeinsam mit Depressionen oder Zwangsstörungen auf. Bleichhardt und Weck, erfahrene Therapeuten und Ausbilder, bieten ein modulares verhaltenstherapeutisches Therapiemanual für die Behandlung sowohl der Hypochondrie als auch des großen subklinischen Bereichs der Krankheitsängste. In der Neuauflage alle Arbeitsblätter auch auf CD-ROM.
