Chapter 5 provides a case that illustrates many of the difficulties of working with an individual whose key problem area is interpersonal deficits, and the case illustrates the complexities of defining and exploring interpersonal deficits with a patient whose depressive symptoms had accented a unique personality style. It examines the history, formulation, process of therapy, and the difficulties and successes in working with such a patient, and provides an example of using the therapeutic relationship to advance the treatment, and issues taken to supervision are also outlined.
