Sample text

I begin a problem list with patient-stated symptoms, as well as signs of possible psychopathology that I observe. Then 1 add the problems in living that the patient might be experiencing, which are often not quite symptoms or signs. Some patients, for example, complain of anxiety and depressive symptoms and then reveal how they are impaired at work, in intimate social relationships, or in caring for their children. I sometimes find it useful to add to this list of phenomena to be examined, a patient's thwarted goals and decisional quandaries.

First, I will go through the four steps about phenomena, states, topics, and schemas of self and others. These beginning instructions will be brief and general. I will then go through them again in more detail, using more examples from the case of Janice. Gradually, by repetition, a beginning clinician may get these dimensions in mind, as a format for use in formulating cases. Step 1: Phenomena to Be Explained The first step is to list salient phenomena. In undertaking Step 1, the clinician lists phenomena that can be observed (signs) or reported (symptoms and problems).

Infer how defensive control processes may activate compromise role-relationship models that ward off dangers and lead to problematic and protective compromise states. Identify dysfunctional attitudes and how these are involved in maladaptive state cycles. Consider whether to discuss with the patient the self-images and roles in important relationships that you infer to be problematic. If you do, clarify agreements, disagreements, and motivations for change. This will help select foci for joint attention.
