Abstract:

The present case report introduces the principles and techniques of a new approach to psychotherapy, shortly named PTC (Paradox + Timetable = Cure), for the treatment of psychological disorders. The results of PTC for a patient with illness anxiety disorder are presented here based on a brief account of his video recorded therapy sessions. The results and the empirical evidence obtained from the treatment of the patient indicated that PTC psychotherapy is a short-term yet very effective approach. The results of 28 months follow-up proved that the improvements were stable and constant. No relapse was reported within the follow-up period. The results of the present study can be applied to new developments in the field of psychotherapy theory, research, and practice.
