Sally

The graph below tracks Sally's symptoms during the first 2 weeks of therapy.



Sally's initially intense symptoms diminished rapidly. Her psychosis disappeared first. Then anger and depression decreased, while anxiety and physical symptoms remained high.

The graph below tracks Sally's overall progress during the first 2 weeks of therapy.



1. Her initial effort to get closer to her husband provoked intense defense during the first week, as her intimacy struggled to rise above her self and achievement scores.
2. When her intimacy briefly emerged above self and achievement on 2/2, and 2/3, high spike of symptoms (defense) rose, pulling down self and achievement.
3. The highest spike of defense mobilized on 2/9, when her intimacy broke through emerging clear above self and achievement, which plunged absorbing the blunt of defense.


The graph below tracks Sally's overall progress over the first 4 months of therapy


1. After the first 4 months of therapy, her intimacy has advanced to over 30.
2. Her symptoms have largely disappeared by exhaustion.
3. Self and achievement started rising above 10 on 4/23 (3 months into therapy), as defense (symptoms) had sufficiently weakened by exhaustion.

The graph below tracks Sally's overall progress during 7 months of therapy.

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



The scores from the three spheres converged and continued to grow at comparable rates (stage IV personality transformation). However, Sally's symptoms had not yet completely disappeared.

The graph below tracks Sally's progress over the last 2 (of total of 14) months of therapy.



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

The scores from Sally's three spheres continued to increase simultaneously (Stage IV), while her symptoms had practically disappeared.

Although she had progressed through the four stages of personality transformation in approximately 5 months of therapy, Sally needed another 9 months to gain the confidence to terminate therapy.

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