  • Integrated Behavioral Intervention and Person-Centered Therapy Within
           Community-Based Treatment of an Adult With Acquired Brain Injury
    • Authors: Joseph N. Ricciardi, Sonya Woelfel Bouchard, James K. Luiselli, Trudy Dould
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      We present the case of a 30-year-old woman who had acquired brain injury (ABI) and demonstrated clinically challenging behaviors (verbally abusive outbursts toward care providers and elopement) within her community-based group home. Following a baseline phase of evaluation, she collaborated with clinicians and care providers in developing a treatment plan that included personal goal setting, differential token reinforcement, communication training, graphic performance feedback, and reinforcement fading. During 10 months of intervention, clinically challenging behaviors steadily decreased from baseline levels and low-frequency occurrence was maintained at 3-, 6-, and 9-month follow-up assessments. As the result of treatment, the woman also avoided prior psychiatric hospitalizations, enjoyed more frequent access to pleasurable activities outside her residence, and enrolled in a college course. The study illustrates an effective person-centered therapy approach combined with behavioral intervention for persons who have ABI and experience community-living adjustment difficulties.

  • Cognitive Remediation Therapy as a Feasible Treatment for a Young Person
           With Anorexia Nervosa and Autism Spectrum Disorder Comorbidity: A Case
    • Authors: Yasemin Dandil, Claire Baillie, Kate Tchanturia
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a challenging illness to treat with inefficiencies in central coherence and set-shifting known to be cognitive maintaining factors for the eating disorder. AN is further complicated by comorbidities such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) aims to address problems with cognitive style and meta-cognition by stimulating the neural connections involved in cognitive processing through cognitive tasks, reflection, and behavioral experiments. However, to date, no reported studies are supporting individual CRT for patients with AN and ASD comorbidity. This single complex case study provides preliminary evidence to support the efficacy of individual CRT in the treatment of a 21-year-old female patient with AN and ASD comorbidity. Clinical and self-report data collected before and after CRT indicate improvements in cognitive flexibility and central coherence, alongside an increase in body mass index (BMI). This case study reflects the possible ways to adapt and calibrate treatment to individual needs and the efficacy of CRT, before proceeding to more complex individual psychological work, such as cognitive behavioral therapy.

  • Brief, Intensive Treatment for Separation Anxiety in an 8-Year-Old Boy: A
           Case Study
    • Authors: Tyler C. McFayden, Susan W. White
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the evidence-based treatment modality for children with anxiety disorders; yet, many youth do not receive treatment. To overcome barriers associated with standardized CBT approaches, brief, intensive treatments have been proposed. This case study illustrates a brief, intensive CBT intervention for a preadolescent male client who presented with severe separation anxiety. The intervention consisted of five sessions (one each day for five consecutive days) and a follow-up assessment 4 months later to evaluate treatment outcomes. The intervention strategies were based in CBTs and included exposures, cognitive reappraisal work with both the client and the parents, and reduction of parental accommodation. Reliable Change Indices were calculated to evaluate change from preintervention to the follow-up assessment. There were large and statistically significant decreases in the main outcome measure of separation anxiety symptoms, indicating significant improvements in separation symptoms over treatment per the client’s and parents’ reports. At the follow-up session, the client no longer met diagnostic criteria for separation anxiety disorder. The results highlight the utility of brief, intensive interventions for separation anxiety in young children.

  • Group-Delivered Enhanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy: A Focus on a Young
           Adult Woman With Bulimia Nervosa
    • Authors: Ashlea L. Hambleton, Tanya L. Hanstock, Rachel Simeone, Michelle Sperling
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E) is an evidence-based treatment for bulimia nervosa (BN), which can be delivered individually or in a group format. This case study describes a young adult female’s progress through a CBT-E group program at an Australian community outpatient eating disorder service. She completed 20 sessions over 10 weeks. The client was administered measures for eating disorder symptoms, depression, anxiety, stress, stage of change, and clinical impairment at pre- and posttreatment. She improved on global eating disorder symptoms, food restriction, eating concern, and her stage of change. Her weight and shape concerns remained unchanged. Her levels of depression, anxiety, and stress significantly increased after treatment, highlighting the need for concurrent treatment for these comorbidities. These results support the developing literature on the efficacy of CBT-E for BN and describe in detail the progress of an individual, including their progress and challenges within a group intervention.

  • Exposure in an Increasingly Bilingual World: Native Language Exposure
           Therapy With a Non-Language Matched Therapist
    • Authors: Daniel Szoke, Caroline Cummings, Lorraine T. Benuto
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Language is an essential part of psychotherapy and experts in cultural competence encourage the consideration of language as an element in cultural adaptation to therapy. Providing clients with services in their native language is associated with lower dropout and better outcomes. Therapies such as prolonged exposure therapy (PET) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) require clients to recount trauma memories to activate and correct overreactive fear networks in the brain. Research shows that the most genuine and detailed recall of these autobiographical memories occurs when people recollect in the same language in which the memory was encoded. Clients are less likely to drop out, tend to see better outcomes, and most closely follow the treatment protocol for PET when speaking in their native language. In an increasingly bilingual world, therapists may share a common language with a client but may be unable to speak the client’s native language. A novel solution for PET involves starting therapy in the therapist/client dyad’s shared language and then eventually conducting imaginal exposures in the client’s native language. The following case provides a successful example for how and why such therapy can be conducted.

      Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) gained support for treating transdiagnostic features of major depressive (MDD) and generalized anxiety disorders (GAD). However, ACT’s intrapersonal emphasis may be insufficient for targeting interpersonal treatment goals. Integrating ACT with functional analytic psychotherapy offers theory-based strategies for responding to ACT-specific processes through the contingent interpersonal relationship thereby targeting both intra- and interpersonal treatment goals. Yet, no research examined the efficacy of this integrative approach (i.e., functional-analytic acceptance and commitment therapy [FACT]) in treating comorbid MDD and GAD. In this case study, we conceptualized a man with comorbid MDD and GAD from a FACT perspective, described FACT treatment across 28 sessions, and presented pretreatment, termination, and 6-month posttreatment data on FACT-specific treatment targets. Depression symptoms, self-compassion, mindfulness, and interpersonal relationships improved despite unchanged physiological anxiety symptoms throughout treatment. These preliminary data provide clinicians with a conceptual framework for treating clients using FACT and may guide future research on integrative treatment approaches.

  • A Case Study of Interpreter-Mediated Prolonged Exposure Therapy for
           Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Challenges and Recommendations for
           Effective Implementation
    • Authors: Matthew J. Woodward, Rosaura Orengo-Aguayo, Regan W. Stewart, Alyssa A. Rheingold
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Prolonged exposure therapy (PE) is one of the most efficacious and widely utilized treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); however, no empirical studies have examined PE when implemented using an interpreter for patients with limited English proficiency (LEP). This omission is at odds with data indicating the number of individuals in the United States who speak languages other than English has risen dramatically over the past few decades and is expected to continue to grow. Consequently, there is a need to understand whether evidence-based trauma interventions, such as PE, work when utilizing an interpreter to reduce barriers in access to care. This case study presents an overview of the case of Teresa, a 28-year-old monolingual Spanish-speaking Latina female who was treated for PTSD following an armed home robbery. Teresa was treated with PE using certified Spanish-speaking medical interpreters. Teresa received 13 sessions of PE and showed clinically significant reductions in both PTSD and depression. This article details the progression of her case, challenges associated with utilizing an interpreter in PE, recommendations for the incorporation of interpreters in the delivery of evidence-based trauma treatment, and directions for future research.

  • Brief, Intensive, and Concentrated Treatment of Specific Phobia in a Child
           With Minimally Verbal Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Ashley Muskett, Sarah Radtke, Thomas H. Ollendick
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      This case study illustrates a brief, intensive, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for a young male client with a specific phobia of dogs and comorbid autism spectrum disorder (ASD). CBT has been shown to be an effective treatment for anxiety in children with ASD; however, this work has not often been extended to children with language impairment. This case study presents significant modifications to one-session treatment (OST) for specific phobia to make it applicable to a child with minimally verbal ASD. The intervention included four 3-hr treatment sessions conducted over the course of four consecutive days. Assessment sessions were conducted before treatment, and 1 week and 3 months following treatment. The client’s phobia symptoms decreased following the intervention at both the posttreatment and follow-up sessions. The Reliable Change Index (RCI) was calculated to evaluate changes from pretreatment to posttreatment and follow-up and demonstrated a clinically significant decrease in phobia symptomology following intervention. The results suggest the potential efficacy for a brief, intensive, and concentrated CBT treatment for a child with minimally verbal ASD and a severe phobia.

  • Evidence for Psychodynamic Play Therapy With Parent Consultation as a
           Treatment for Somatic Complaints in Childhood
    • Authors: Stephanie Kors, Salmaan Toor, Jenny Macfie
      First page: 415
      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.”

  • 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.

  • Doctor, Snitch, and Weasel: Narrative Family Therapy With a Child
           Suffering From Encopresis and Enuresis
    • Authors: Stephen T. Fife, Lindsey G. Hawkins
      First page: 452
      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.

  • 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
      First page: 468
      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.

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy With a 6-Year-Old Boy
    • Authors: Irene Marcela Jørgensen, Cathriona Cantio, Ask Elklit
      First page: 480
      Abstract: Clinical Case Studies, Ahead of Print.
      A considerable minority of children are exposed to prolonged periods of repeated or multiple interpersonal traumas at an early age, yet few interventions exist for this vulnerable population. This current case study presents manualized trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) with a 6-year-old boy who had been exposed to multiple traumatic events. The boy presented with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), specific phobia, reactive attachment disorder, and psychosocial malfunction in several domains. After TF-CBT was implemented, he no longer met the criteria of PTSD, depression, ADHD, and specific phobia. He also improved in several domains of psychosocial function. In addition, the mother reported a better quality of the parent–child relationship, and they both demonstrated a better understanding of trauma reactions and how to apply new coping and problem-solving skills. Finally, the young boy showed improvements in academic performance, social interactions, and general emotional and behavioral functioning. This case study adds to the growing literature, highlighting the utility of using TF-CBT to successfully treat symptoms of PTSD and associated psychopathology in young children with a history of complex trauma.
