This case represents a methodological experiment. The two people seen together are first cousins once removed. The older female is the younger maleís guardian and emotional mother. Theoretically based methodology does not suggest seeing a financially dependent young person with his mother. All too often in such an arrangement the mother comes to help the therapist fix the young person and is unwilling to look at herself. For a number of reasons the therapist didnít think it would be efficacious to see these two separately. Yet while seeing them together, could the therapist address the emotional motherís part in their reciprocal relationship equally to the symptomatic young personís behavior? It seems it has been possible to do so.
