Case #3

This is a case of both internal conflict within the patient and interpersonal conflict between the patient and his father. We would suggest a course of action which addresses the rage and feelings towards his father and also the effects that his symptoms (i.e. the voices in his head) have created in both his life and his relationships (namely with his father) through talk therapy. Simultaneously, we would investigate options for medication and treatment to reduce or eliminate the voices if appropriate. (One might assume it appropriate because rage emerged at finding out his father also had the experience of voices, and this particular response might have been because the voices caused the patient undue stress or anguish?)
