HOMEOPATHIC PSYCHIATRY - Understanding the Use & Meaning of the Delusion Rubrics in Case Analysis
By Liz Lalor
Liz Lalor has taken homeopathic rubric-repertorisation and traditional counselling techniques, and combined the two to create an invaluable casetaking manual. In 2008 Lalor presented a series of lectures on her video cases in a lecture series called ‘Revealing the Disturbance in the Case' in London, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Her psychological insight into the mental and emotional disturbance in patients suffering with chronic disease has been the catalyst to this groundbreaking understanding of the Delusion rubrics. Homeopathic Psychiatry is not only a great addition to understanding casetaking techniques it is an extensive Materia medica study of the meaning and application of the Delusion rubrics. Lalor’s model teaches homeopaths how to follow the five psychological steps that the patient will move through in a homeopathic consultation as they struggle to acknowledge their loss of good health. This book is an extensive, previously unexplored explanation of the meaning of each individual Delusion rubrics. The individual psychiatric interpretation of each Delusion rubric is an invaluable guide to understanding these previously misunderstood and underutilized rubrics in our repertory. Lalor presents several cases from her practice. In each case analysis, Lalor clearly defines the four necessary requirements for the use of the Delusion rubrics in a patient’s case analysis and unravels the significant events to give an explanation of the causation within the case and an explanation of her rubric-repertorisation technique.
