The graph below tracks Fran's symptoms over the first 2 months
The graph shows four periodic and diminishing clusters of symptom
spikes (panic attacks) during the first 2 months of therapy.
The graph below tracks Fran's overall progress over the first
2 months of therapy.
1. Advancing intimacy provoked the panic attacks represented by
each of four clusters of symptom peaks.
2. Her self and achievement spheres absorbed the brunt of defense
(symptoms), allowing her intimacy alone to advance. Intimacy scores
rose more rapidly than did self and achievement scores, creating
a widening gap (personality transition stage II).
3. On September 20, Fran's intimacy superseded the pretreatment
maximum level of 10. This breakthrough provoked strong defenses
The graph below tracks Fran's overall progress
over the first 4 months of therapy.
1. Fran's intimacy advanced unopposed to a score of 34.

Of the five symptoms of stress that Fran rated, only the highest
score is rendered as a stress peak on this graph. The scores Fran
gave to the nine elements of each sphere were averaged. The averages
were used to graph the intimacy, self, and achievement scores.
To provide a reference point, Fran's maximum pretreatment experiences
were each given a score of 10. The client's goal in therapy is
to reach experience levels far beyond those previously reported.
1. Fran's intimacy advanced to a score of 80.
2. At the end of therapy, her self and achievement scores were
comparable with those for intimacy (personality stage IV).
3. Except for occasional mild anxiety, her symptoms disappeared.
As shown in the above graph, Fran experienced four stages of personality
transformation during the 6 months of therapy.
The four stages of personality transformation are described in
