Clinical advice needed!

3 posts in this topic

I would be grateful if any colleagues have experience of

a) management of hysterical blindness

B) CBT in LD or poorly literate patients.

I'm a bit stumped & would be heartily thankful to anyone who could give any general pointers. Even teeny ones.

Thanks as usual,

Che ;)

hi!

Me again!!

sounds you are directly in middle of things!!

With re 1.I had couple of young clients who had similar difficulties.NO 'evidence base'd strategy as far as i know.

1.Takes time..for results

2.Detailed understanding of psychosocial factors helped addressing secondary gains

3.A supportive sometimes intensive[twice a week at times!]contact with yound person as well as carers

4.Time spent in addressing carers anxiety is worthwhile

5.Normalizing life,school,activities

6.reducing negative reactions to the index problem

7.avoid challenging

I did couple of DVs and liased with paeds/neuro closely to facilitate assessments

re 2,no personal experience but keep hearing'creatively adaptiong2!!doesnt help much!
