Pharmacotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapywere the treatment of choice for Anil where Cognitive Behaviour Therapy was being modified according to the developmental needs and family context. The case report also puts forward the significance of early attachment and parenting (Guidano and Liotti,1983, Safran,1990) and the role they played in the development and maintenance of the dysfunctional beliefs (Bhar and Kyrios,2000).
