Abstract

This article describes the brief psychotherapeutic treatment of a hearing mother who reported obsessional thoughts about her deaf child's future. The article was written jointly by the therapist and the client. Clinical hypnosis was used to modify the mother's negative images of her child's future. Structured meetings between the mother, a vocational counselor, and deaf adults affirmed and expanded the more positive images. Theoretical descriptions and personal sentiments are offered.
