Unusual stories

ByA. H. Brafman

This is a collection of cases where unusual episodes were described. Indeed they “belonged” to that individual’s whole life, but these experiences had a striking element when considered in the particular context of that person’s life when I met them. Not surprisingly, it was some “symptom” complaint that led to them being referred to see me. This symptom could only be overcome when its significance within the context of that point in the person’s life was identified—and significant changes implemented. Some cases responded to our consultation alone, but others required long-term therapy.
