Abstract

Langzeitarbeitslosigkeit und Langzeitsozialhilfebezug sind Kennzeichen struktureller Arbeitslosigkeit. Die leistungsfeindliche Ausgestaltung des Systems der Arbeitslosenunterstützung und der Sozialhilfe mit – ökonomisch betrachtet – exorbitant hohen «Spitzensteuersätzen» auf die eigenen Verdienste von Hilfeempfängern trägt zur Verlängerung des Hilfebezugs bei. In dieser Arbeit werden Alternativen zum Status quo vorgestellt und kritisch diskutiert. Ein eigener Reformvorschlag – das Einstiegsgeld für Langzeitarbeitslose – wird entwickelt. Das Einstiegsgeld wird seit 1999 in Modellversuchen in 16 Städten und Kreisen in Baden-Württemberg und Hessen in der Praxis getestet.

Abstract

There is abundant evidence showing a strong association between trauma exposure, psychotic symptoms, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Early trauma exposure contributes to the formation of psychotic symptoms and the development of psychotic disorders or severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and treatment-refractory major depression. Furthermore, among persons with psychotic disorders, multiple traumatization over the lifetime is common, due to factors such as social stigma, the criminalization of severe mental illness, and increased vulnerability to interpersonal victimization. In addition to these factors is the traumatic nature of experiencing psychotic symptoms and coercive treatments such as involuntary hospitalization and being placed in seclusion or restraints. Not surprisingly, these high rates of trauma lead to high rates of PTSD in people with psychotic disorders, which are associated with more severe symptoms, worse functioning, and greater use of acute care services. In addition to the impact of trauma on the development of psychotic disorders and comorbid PTSD, traumatic experiences such as childhood sexual and physical abuse can shape the nature of prominent psychotic symptoms such as the content of auditory hallucinations and delusional beliefs. Additionally, traumatic experiences have been implicated in the role of ‘stress responsivity’ and increased risk for transition to psychosis in those identified as being at clinical high risk of developing psychosis. Finally, although the diagnostic criteria for PTSD primarily emphasize the effects of trauma on anxiety, avoidance, physiological over-arousal, and negative thoughts, it is well established that PTSD is frequently accompanied by psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions that cannot be attributed to another DSM-V Axis I disorder such as psychotic depression or schizophrenia. Understanding the contribution of traumatic experiences to the etiology of psychosis and other symptoms can inform the provision of cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis, including the development of a shared formulation of the events leading up to the onset of the disorder, as well as other trauma-informed treatments that address distressing and disabling symptoms associated with trauma and psychosis. Until recently the trauma treatment needs of this population have been neglected, despite the high rates of trauma and PTSD in persons with psychotic disorders, and in spite of substantial gains made in the treatment of PTSD in the general population. Fortunately, progress in recent years has provided encouraging evidence that PTSD can be effectively treated in people with psychotic disorders using interventions adapted from PTSD treatments developed for the general population. In contrast to clinician fears about the untoward effects of trauma-focused treatments on persons with a psychotic disorder, research indicates that post-traumatic disorders can be safely treated, and that participants frequently experience symptom relief and improved functioning. There is a need to develop a better understanding of the interface between trauma, psychosis, and post-traumatic disorder. This Frontiers Research Topic is devoted to research addressing this interface.

Abstract

Spätestens seit der Bundestagswahl 1994 befindet sich die Idee der Negativen Einkommensteuer, d.h. einer Integration von Steuer- und Transfersystem, in der politischen und wissenschaftlichen Diskussion. Während in früheren Phasen sozialpolitische Ziele verfolgt wurden, rücken vermehrt die Auswirkungen auf den Arbeitsmarkt in den Vordergrund. Diese Entwicklung wurde sehr schnell und von verschiedenen Seiten kritisiert, ohne daß bisher Analysen zu den möglichen Beschäftigungswirkungen und den Kosten einer Negativen Einkommensteuer im Vergleich zur klassischen Arbeitsmarktpolitik vorliegen. Genau dies ist Ziel und Inhalt dieses Bandes: die Analyse von Effektivität und Effizienz einer Negativen Einkommensteuer in beschäftigungspolitischer Zielsetzung. Vor dem Hintergrund einer Vielzahl mehr oder weniger gescheiterter Konzepte zum Abbau der Arbeitslosigkeit spricht vieles für eine Neuordnung des sozialen Sicherungssystems innerhalb einer funktionierenden Marktwirtschaft.

Abstract

Im Laufe der letzten Jahre werden vor dem Hintergrund der anhaltenden und weiterhin ansteigenden hohen Arbeitslosigkeit arbeitsmarkt- und beschäftigungspolitische Instrumente diskutiert, die nicht - wie meist üblich - an der Arbeitsmenge, sondern am Preis für Arbeit ansetzen. Zu diesen Instrumenten gehören die negative Einkommensteuer und Lohnsubventionen. Ziel und Inhalt des Bandes ist die Effizienzanalyse der beiden Instrumente im Rahmen der modernen Arbeitsmarkttheorien und der Neuen Institutionenökonomik. Innerhalb dieser theoretischen Konzepte erweisen sich beide Instrumente als effizienzsteigernde, d.h. beschäftigungsfördernde Maßnahmen, wobei der negativen Einkommensteuer eine höhere Wirksamkeit als den Lohnsubventionen zugebilligt werden kann.

Abstract

Resistance to continuing education is a possible action against continuing education and learning that is barely empirical explored and undertheorized yet. Starting with previous studies about resistance to education and about resistance in other disciplines this research outlines a critical theory on refusal based on a negativ-dialectical approach. Resistance to continuing education is shown as a multifarious, context-related an potentially critical act.

Abstract

The discovery of antibiotics represented a key milestone in the history of medicine. However, with the rise of these life-saving drugs came the awareness that bacteria deploy defence mechanisms to resist these antibiotics, and they are good at it. Today, we appear at a crossroads between discovery of new potent drugs and omni-resistant superbugs. Moreover, the misuse of antibiotics in different industries has increased the rate of resistance development by providing permanent selective pressure and, subsequently, enrichment of multidrug resistant pathogens. As a result, antimicrobial resistance has now become an urgent threat to public health worldwide (http://www.who.int/drugresistance/documents/surveillancereport/en/). The development of multidrug resistance (MDR) in an increasing number of pathogens, including Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, Klebsiella, Salmonella, Burkholderia, and other Gram-negative bacteria is a most severe issue. Membrane efflux pump complexes of the Resistance-Nodulation-cell Division (RND) superfamily play a key role in the development of MDR in these bacteria. RND pumps, together with other transporters, contribute to intrinsic and acquired resistance to most, if not all, of the antimicrobial compounds available in our drug arsenal. Given the enormous drug polyspecificity of MDR efflux pumps, studies on their mechanism of action are extremely challenging, and this has negatively impacted both the development of new antibiotics that are able to evade these efflux pumps as well as the design of pump inhibitors. The collection of articles in this eBook, published as a Research Topic in Frontiers in Microbiology, section of Antimicrobials, Resistance, and Chemotherapy, aims to update the reader about the latest advances on the structure and function of RND efflux transporters, their roles in the overall multidrug resistance phenotype of Gram-negative pathogens, and on strategies to inhibit their activities. A deeper understanding of the mechanisms by which RND efflux pumps, alone or synergistically with other efflux pumps, are able to limit the concentration of antimicrobial compounds inside the bacterial cell, may pave the way for new, more directed, inhibitor and antibiotic design to ultimately overcome antimicrobial resistance by Gram-negatives.
