This chapter records a series of five extended vignettes that have been transcribed almost verbatim from transcripts of audiotaped sessions involving five different clinicians and their respective patients. The vignettes are considered in turn, and each of the 17 items of the Adherence Manual is seen to apply to the clinical material. This careful review of episodes of therapeutic dialogue strengthens the links already established among the Manual, the Adherence Manual, and the nitty gritty of verbal exchanges between patients and their therapists. It also extends the range of clinical material presented, introducing new patients and new therapists, each with their own style of emotional and intellectual conduct in the therapeutic encounter. Nevertheless, the different clinicians show remarkable consistency in therapeutic orientation.
