Norman

The graph below tracks Norman's symptoms during the first month in therapy.



Norman's symptoms were provoked by Ann, but they diminished progressively.


The graph below tracks Norman's overall progress during the first month in therapy.

Of the five symptoms of stress that Norman rated, only the highest score is rendered as a stress peak on this graph. The scores Norman 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, Norman'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.



Despite repeated setbacks, Norman's intimacy scores remained dominant over his self and achievement sphere scores (stage I of personality transformation).

The graph below tracks Norman's overall progress over the first 2 months of therapy.


(Of the five symptoms of stress that Norman rated, only the highest score is rendered as a stress peak on this graph. The scores Norman gave to the nine elements of each sphere were averaged. The averages were used to graph the intimacy, self, and achievement scores.)

1. Norman's intimacy increased, as shown by a score of 28, having overcome at least 5 sharp setbacks. These roadblocks had been provoked by increased intimacy.
2. Norman recovered from each setback, recording increasingly and sequentially higher scores of closeness.

The graph below tracks Norman's progress over the first 5 months of therapy.




1. Norman's intimacy increased to a score of 162 after 5 months of therapy.
2. At the same time, self and achievement scores rose rapidly and nearly reached the values of intimacy (stage III of personality transformation).
3. His defenses (symptoms) progressively diminished but did not entirely disappear after 5 months of therapy.


The graph below tracks Norman's progress during the last 2 of 8 months of therapy.

(Of the five symptoms of stress that Norman rated, only the highest score is rendered as a stress peak on this graph. The scores Norman gave to the nine elements of each sphere were averaged. The averages were used to graph the intimacy, self, and achievement scores.)



This graph shows that Norman progressed through the classic four stages of personality transformation, with scores from three spheres converging at a high level and increasing together. His symptoms dissipated.


Norman needed 6 months to overcome his own underlying borderline personality. He reached full personality transformation (stage IV) while in the process of getting close to Ann.


The four stages of personality transformation are described in detail at Lifetrack Concepts: Intimacy to Growth
