Why are more and more young girls and women becoming anorexic ? Today it is a real social problem. The trend of diets, and the multiplication of magazines about losing weight are no longer enough to explain this phenomenon. Thierry Vincent poses fundamental questions in this book in order to understand how anorexica works. Perhaps the search for new ways of treating anorexia should depart from an examination of these questions. Thierry Vincent, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, is the medical director of the university health centre Georges Dumas, in La Tronche, near Grenoble, where high school and university students suffering from eating disorders are treated.
Knots in your stomach and feelings of anxiety are common sensations. But what can be done when anxiety becomes overpowering, handicapping ? What are the symptoms ? When does it become a disease ?

Eric Albert and Laurent Chneiweiss are both psychiatrists, and specialists in the modern treatment of anxiety.
What do we know about autism today ? How can it be treated ? What is the cause ?

It offers both parents and professionals a great source of strength with which to fight against autism. Michel Lemay is a psychiatrist and professor of child and adolescent psychiatry. A world-renowned specialist in autism, he is the director of the clinic on autism and invasive development disorders at the Hôpital Sainte-Justine in Montreal.

When we attempt to cure human suffering with a chemical pill, arent we denying the real issues that have given rise to depression? Must we resort to denying the psyche in order to come out of a depressive state? Isnt there another way? Pierre Fédida shows that the emergence of a depressive state can always be explained by the disappearance of the capacity to fight off depression : the goal of the psychotherapy of depressive states should be the recovery of this capacity in order to regain ones vital inner balance without the reliance on chemical solutions. Pierre Fédida is a psychoanalyst.

This book is the result of a study on drugs carried out by Bernard Roques at the request of the French Secretary of State for Health, Bernard Kouchner. The author has reviewed and summarised a large body of information from all over the world, so this is a thorough, detailed scientific examination of what is known today of the potential dangers, particularly for the brain, of toxic and psychotropic drugs including alcohol and tobacco which are often associated with the consumption of other drugs. Roques study will doubtless play a major role in public health discussions and decisions, particularly in the fight against alcoholism and nicotine addiction. Bernard Roques is a member of the French Académie des Sciences.
