Abstract

This case synopsis of Sara covers a 10-year span of treatment for a single patient. It looks at her diagnostic formulation in detail and discusses the differential diagnosis of her psychiatric conditions. It also discusses the therapeutic approach to the patient in detail including the phases of her therapy and the issues of her clinical course. The focus throughout is on how the psychological treatment of complex patients is time-consuming and complicated, but how the recovery of a severely ill person can be achieved through integrated care.
