  • Use of the C.A.T. Project for a Socially Anxious Teenager: Lessons Learned
           From Manual Modification
    • Authors: Cara M. McClain, Jennifer Bolden, L. Christian Elledge
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is a prevalent mental disorder among adolescents, often causing significant impairments in social and academic functioning with a broad pattern of fear and avoidance. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to be an effective treatment for SAD with more than 20 randomized controlled trials. Specifically, the present case study utilized the C.A.T. Project (adolescent version of Coping Cat), which is a widely studied and commonly used treatment for youth anxiety disorders. Treatment consisted of 22 sessions over 11 months with a 14-year-old Caucasian female with outcome data demonstrating some significant reductions in anxiety. However, the client terminated prior to finishing the C.A.T. Project manual. As such, this case study emphasizes complicating factors, potential benefits and drawbacks of manual modifications, and resulting treatment implications for clinician consideration.

  • Evidence for Psychodynamic Play Therapy With Parent Consultation as a
           Treatment for Somatic Complaints in Childhood
    • Authors: Stephanie Kors, Salmaan Toor, Jenny Macfie
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      This study explored the effectiveness of psychodynamic play therapy with parent consultation to treat somatic complaints. Evie was treated with 50 sessions of psychodynamic play therapy which incorporated parent consultation. Intervention included direct parent consultation aimed to improve the security of the parent–child attachment in tandem with building a long-term, secure therapy relationship with Evie. Variables were assessed pre- and post-treatment, utilizing the Reliable Change Index to examine statistically significant change over the course of treatment. Significant symptom improvement was observed in Evie’s somatization. Significant improvement was also observed in parent–child relationship indicators including relational frustration and discipline practices. No significant improvements were observed in communication, parenting confidence, involvement, or attachment at the end of treatment, but significant improvements were observed at 3-month follow-up in all areas. Results are discussed in terms of the effectiveness of psychodynamic approaches to treatment with children, particularly with regard to the “sleeper effect.”

  • Comparison of Function-Based, Nonfunction-Based, and Combined Treatments
           for Escape-Maintained Aggression in a Child With Attention Deficit
           Hyperactivity Disorder: A Case Study
    • Authors: David A. Wilder, J. Aaron Bevacqua, Ansley C. Hodges, Hallie Ertel, Nga Luong
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      In applied behavior analysis, the use of function-based treatments to reduce problem behavior is well-supported. However, in some cases, function-based treatments alone may not be as effective as nonfunction-based treatments or function-based treatments with additional, nonfunction-based components. In this case study, we compared the delivery of preferred edible items (a nonfunction-based treatment), a break from a task (a function-based treatment), and an enhanced break, which consisted of a break plus access to a preferred tangible item (combination of a nonfunction-based and function-based treatment), to treat escape-maintained aggression exhibited by a young child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Across all three treatments, reinforcement (i.e., edible, break, or enhanced break) was delivered contingent upon compliance with instructions and problem behavior resulted in escape. The nonfunction-based treatment and the combination treatment reduced aggression to zero levels; the function-based treatment did not. Finally, we allowed the participant to choose which of the three treatments he preferred to experience; he selected the combination treatment most often.

  • Doctor, Snitch, and Weasel: Narrative Family Therapy With a Child
           Suffering From Encopresis and Enuresis
    • Authors: Stephen T. Fife, Lindsey G. Hawkins
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Children who experience enuresis and encopresis can face many difficulties, including social isolation, shame, embarrassment, anxiety, and depression. Due to the prevalence of enuresis and encopresis, it is essential for mental health professionals to understand the common symptoms and available treatment options for enuresis and encopresis, particularly to assist parents struggling to help their children overcome these challenges. Despite this need, there is very little clinical literature that incorporates a systemic approach for families who have a child diagnosed with enuresis and encopresis. Furthermore, common treatment approaches may unwittingly reinforce children’s perception that these problems are rooted in their identity. In an effort to address these concerns, the present case study aims to illustrate how a narrative therapy approach was utilized to effectively treat a child with enuresis and encopresis. Narrative therapy can uniquely assist children and their parents by helping them externalize the problem, overcome the problem-saturated view of their lives, and create new experiences where the problem is nonexistent.

  • The Efficacy of a Compassion-Focused Therapy–Based Intervention in
           Reducing Psychopathic Traits and Disruptive Behavior: A Clinical Case
           Study With a Juvenile Detainee
    • Authors: Diana Ribeiro da Silva, Daniel Rijo, Paula Castilho, Paul Gilbert
      First page: 323
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Conduct disorder (CD) is the most diagnosed psychopathological disorder in juvenile detainees. The presence of a CD diagnosis, especially when associated with psychopathic traits, contributes to a poor prognosis, high recidivism rates, and low responsivity to treatment in these youth. Although group intervention programs have proven to be effective in decreasing antisocial behavior, studies testing their efficacy in reducing psychopathic traits are scarce and limited. Moreover, there is a lack of research focused on the efficacy of individual treatment approaches specifically designed to reduce psychopathic traits and disruptive behavior in juvenile detainees. Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) shows promising results in the treatment of several psychopathological disorders. Besides, there is some theoretical support to consider CFT a suitable approach to treating juvenile detainees. However, there are no treatment programs based on CFT that are designed to target psychopathic traits and disruptive behavior in these youth. Consequently, treatment outcome research in this area is absent. This clinical case study presents the treatment of a juvenile detainee with CD, a high psychopathic profile, and a very high risk for criminal recidivism using the PSYCHOPATHY.COMP program (a 20-session individual CFT program), which was specially designed to reduce psychopathic traits and disruptive behavior. The treatment outcome data revealed a significant reduction in psychopathic traits and disruptive behavior. The treatment gains were maintained and/or increased over time (3 months after program completion). This clinical case study demonstrates the feasibility and efficacy of the PSYCHOPATHY.COMP program in reducing psychopathic traits and disruptive behavior in a juvenile detainee.

  • A Clinical Case Demonstrating the Effectiveness of an Individualized
           Multimodal Intervention for Chronic Pain and Cognitive Sequelae Secondary
           to Traumatic Brain Injury

      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Chronic pain and cognitive difficulties are common secondary to traumatic brain injury (TBI); however, given the vast heterogeneity in TBI presentation, no empirically supported treatments specific to TBI exist. This case demonstrates the effectiveness of an empirically informed multimodal treatment, in which treatment components were selected based on the patient’s individual symptoms and delivered in a manner cognizant of the patient’s cognitive profile. Treatment incorporated components of cognitive behavioral therapy, physical intervention, mindfulness, sleep hygiene, distress tolerance, and cognitive rehabilitation. Pain, sleep, and therapy-related activities were logged daily. Treatment progress was further measured with the Beck Depression Inventory–II, Beck Anxiety Inventory, Satisfaction With Life Scale, and Insomnia Severity Index. The patient reported a significant reduction in pain (average pain rating reduced from 8.5-9 to 6.90 on the numerical rating scale [NRS]) and reported experiencing his least painful day in “years” (i.e., pain rating of 3). The patient reported improvements in mood and sleep, increased engagement in physical/other pleasant activities, and improved academic performance. The patient is currently not pursuing opioids or surgical intervention for pain. This case demonstrates the importance of utilization of neuropsychological data in the identification of treatment goals, appropriate treatment selection, and implementation of suitable techniques. This approach can provide neurologically atypical individuals with interventions that better address their symptom presentation and maximize prognosis.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for a Young Woman of Asian Heritage

      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is one of the most common anxiety disorders and is associated with significant impairments in academic, occupational, and social functioning. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has shown to be an effective treatment for GAD; however, little research has examined its effectiveness with individuals of Asian heritage. In fact, as a result of limited use of mental health services within the Asian population, there is little psychotherapy research for this population. The present case examined whether a well-established CBT protocol, Mastering Your Anxiety and Worry (MAW), can be tailored in a culturally responsive manner to consider factors and values that influence well-being and functioning. Treatment consisted of 27 sessions over a 6-month period, with outcome data demonstrating a significant decrease in anxiety symptoms at the end of treatment. Results revealed statistically reliable clinical change on the Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale–21 (DASS-21) using Western norms and norms for a Chinese sample. This case demonstrates the potential cross-cultural utility of CBT for GAD for individuals of Asian heritage.

      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Smokers suffer from high rates of anxiety disorders, presumably because some individuals with anxiety disorders rely on smoking as a maladaptive attempt to manage anxiety. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an efficacious smoking cessation treatment, yet outcomes are worse for patients with elevated anxiety. The integration of CBT for smoking cessation with False Safety Behavior Elimination Therapy (FSET) may be useful with anxious smoking cessation patients, as smoking to manage anxiety and associated negative affect can be targeted as a false safety behavior (i.e., behavior aimed at decreasing anxiety in the short-term but which may maintain or exacerbate it in the long-term). Here, we describe the integrated treatment, Treatment for Anxiety and Smoking Cessation (TASC), and the successful use of it with two smoking cessation patients—one with comorbid generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and one with clinically elevated social anxiety that did not meet diagnostic threshold for an anxiety disorder. Data support the feasibility of TASC as a viable approach to smoking cessation treatment for patients with comorbid anxiety disorder and with elevated anxiety that does not meet diagnostic threshold. Future controlled trials are now warranted to further evaluate the intervention.

  • Behavioral Treatment of Trichotillomania in a College Woman: A Case Study
    • Authors: Shilpa Boppana, Alan Gross
      First page: 397
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Trichotillomania (TTM) is a disorder that involves repetitive pulling of one’s hair to the point of hair loss and clinically significant distress or functional impairment. Using Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 (DSM-5) criteria, which include repeated attempts to decrease or stop pulling, the 12-month prevalence of TTM is 1% to 2%. Treatment commonly involves behavior therapies. These behavior therapies conceptualize TTM using operant learning theory and explain hair-pulling behavior as caused and maintained by environmental antecedents and consequences interacting with an individual’s biological makeup. This clinical case study describes use of an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enhanced Behavior Therapy for Trichotillomania (AEBT-T) protocol to facilitate treatment of a 20-year-old woman who was referred for TTM. The client remained in treatment for 14 months. After the completion of 32 therapy sessions, the client reported significantly reduced hair-pulling and anxiety, as well as increased engagement in valued activities. Implications of these findings are discussed, with an emphasis on the challenges of treating TTM in a college population.
