The importance of matching positive cognition to client values

Description

A twenty-four year old Ctholic woman who came to see me recently was sufferng from sever post-abortion depression and guilt., (The abortion had been just one week prior to our visit). Her presenting symptoms were difficulty eating, sleeping, getting up to clean the house, and flashbacks of the abortion. Although she was not conscious during the procedure, the flashbacks were of the doctor performing the abortion. She also punished herself by looking at a book of embryology and paying paritcular attention to pictures of the fetus at the stage at which it was aborted.
