The purpose of this chapter is to illustrate the use of the author’s conceptual model in clinical practice. This will be achieved by describing a single case in some detail. Clearly, a single case presentation does not validate the model. The purpose of the case illustration is to demonstrate the technical therapeutic procedures employed by a therapist utilizing the model. This particular case was chosen because of the availability of extensive progress notes and the range of interventions utilized, and because the case is typical of the clinical population treated at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Chicago.
