Der Beitrag fragt am Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts zunächst nach Veränderungen des kinder- und jugendpsychiatrischen Klientels der letzten Jahrzehnte. Der gesellschaftliche Wandel schlägt sich auch hier deutlich nieder. In einem zweiten Schritt wendet sich der Autor der Frage zu, ob die Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie hierauf adäquat reagiert hat bzw. reagieren konnte. In einem dritten Schritt wagt der Beitrag einen Ausblick und verbindet diesen mit Anregungen zur künftigen Perspektive von Kinder- und Jugendpsychiatrie.

The word ‘crisis’ derives from the Greek, and means insecurity, hazardous situation, increasing gravity, moment of decision, turning point. In Hippocratic medicine, the concept of ‘crisis’ indicated the high point, and turning point, of the course of an illness, since either the sickness momentarily issued in catastrophe—death—or the crisis passed and there was an improvement. The more threateningly, and ‘existentially,’ a life crisis is experienced, the oftener and more ‘elementarily’ is it coupled to the religious dimension.

1. Thirteen-year-old Sabrina came from a family where her father, as well as her aunt and grandfather, were active members of a radical Christian community. Her mother had left this religious group. A few weeks before coming down with the disease, Sabrina attracted attention in school by her nervousness, her inward unrest, and her fear. After visiting a youth-counseling center, she stabilized, and her work in school quickly improved. After a few more weeks, however, she once more manifested behavioral disturbances in school. Her grandfather then came to talk with her, spoke with her at length about religious topics, and gave her an audiocassette of religious material. Immediately after this conversation, the psychosis came on, with confabulations and hallucinations: Sabrina claimed x-ray vision, then collected trash, which she had to do, she claimed, because the trash came from heaven. She went on constantly about good and evil, bright and dark, God and the Devil. Now her father tried to ‘get through’ to his daughter, in a three-hour conversation—without success. Sabrina filled the bathtub with hot water, soaped herself standing by the tub, and started to climb in. She was taken to the hospital. Her anamnesis claimed that her father played the guitar in a band when he was off work. Shortly before the onset of the psychosis, Sabrina had constantly looked out of the window, listening to guitar music and dancing to it.
