It is now (January 2006) twelve years ago that the first youngster was treated with phase therapy. How many patients have been treated since then is difficult to say. I can say the following about the first 60 treatments I gave to children and adolescents: 51 treatments were successful, i.e. the goals were achieved. The assessment of the results were based on observations by parents, therapists and teachers and by the evaluation of the satisfaction of both the parents and the child/adolescent.
Of the remaining nine treatments, three were discontinued, two were refused by the child and two by the parents. In two of the treatments behavioural change was ascertained but the goal of the phase therapy was not achieved.
We can be satisfied with these results. It is important to note that phase therapy must be given by psychotherapists trained in this method.
