Das Buch über Kronfeld und die Identität der Psychiatrie ist geschickt aufgebaut, indem die Darstellung der Person und des Werkes von Kronfeld durchsetzt ist mit neun Lebenswelten, Falldarstellungen mit Betonung kritischer Therapie-Situationen. So kommen Leser:innen nach der «Anstrengung des Begriffs» immer wieder auf das vertrautere Terrain der klinischen Situation.

Switzerland's early contributions to the 'psychedelic renaissance', the revival of psychedelic science starting in the early 21st century, might be particularly noteworthy given the growing global interest in using psychedelics for research and therapy. In 2023, the Swiss Interest Group for Psychedelic-assisted Therapy was established to provide a clear and widely accepted framework for work related to psychedelic-assisted therapy. Members of this group created a first draft of treatment recommendations (S1 guidelines). These recommendations will be continuously updated to incorporate new findings in research and therapy.

Collectively, the reviewed articles form a coherent theory of dysfunctional emotion regulation in patients with BPD in the form of the fronto-limbic imbalance model, which is characterized by hypoactivity of the prefrontal region and hyperactivity of the limbic region. Thus, it appears that, compared to individuals without BPD, those with the diagnosis have a marked tendency to interpret their environment more negatively and to react with greater emotional intensity.

The drawing on the cover page was created by a young man suffering from anorexia and offers an insight into his perspective of the condition. I recommend delving into the compelling case study, where the piece and its interpretations are described in detail. Allow me to add some remarks on the drawing and its representation of anorexia expanding beyond the individual perspective to broader implications.

In this report, we present the case of a talented anorectic patient whose artistic expression of his anorexia gave us an exceptional insight into the pain he experienced. Based on his artwork, we designed an illustrated visual analogue scale (VAS) that allowed us to assess the control of the disease over his mind and thus the clinical progress from a psychotherapeutic point of view. By comparing the progression of the VAS with the Body Mass Index (BMI), we were able to identify the tipping point at which the patient regained control and provide targeted support to maintain it, perceived as very helpful by the patient. A VAS assessing anorexia's control over the mind is a simple and readily available tool that factors in the psychiatric background of the disease. It could be a good complement to the BMI as a clinical outcome parameter and should be further explored.
