For a treatment to be successful how much of a patient's inner experience do we need to know/feel on a visceral level, in our gut, along with the crucial intellectual understanding and empathy? Is it even possible to understand another in this way?  I don't know the answer, but my experience in this case has given me food for thought--or rather, food for my gut--for it was primarily in my gut and body that I experienced these moments that then had to be digested and contemplated with the thinking minds of trusted colleagues. Those terrifying moments in question were related to the split-off experiences of a young adult DID patient, a victim of severe, organized abuse and mind-control. Though this case and experience lend themselves to a discussion about reality and fantasy ( how much of what this patient reports actually happened?), the question I am asking speaks to this patient's undeniable inner experience of terror, horror and fear, and if my meager shadow experience of these self-states was vital or of the essence to the work.
