(Note: For participants who haven't read my other work, Paul is referring to my use of Gary as a case example in one of the chapters I wrote for Cognitive Therapy of Personality Disorders)
Paul, your tone suggests that there is something wrong with my using a case example which I have used before. This may be a point where our views differ. It seems to me that a good case example (whether my own or someone elses) can be legitimately used more than once. I am not aware of any rule against doing this as long as the author can manage to avoid being repetitive or redundant. I chose this case because I thought it would be a good stimulus for discussion and it seems to be going pretty well so far.
You also seem to feel that a discussion of a case from several years ago can't possibly be state-of-the-art. Please note that the case example is from a several years ago but that the ideas I am presenting on theory and on therapy are my current thinking, not my thoughts from 1990. My thinking on this topic has not undergone any radical transformations in the past decade but it has evolved quite a bit. My current presentation of my work with Gary is as close to the state of the art as I can come.
