Psychotherapy in case of dizziness: explanatory model and case report The traditional discrimination between organic and psychogenic dizziness fails to capture the complex relationships between neurologic, otologic, and psychiatric factors in patients suffering from long-standing dizziness. After an introduction, this case report presents and discusses the cognitive-behavioural treatment of a 29-year-old patient with frequent dizziness attacks without avoidance behaviour. The diagnostic model was based on both somatic and psychic components. This enabled the patient, who kept assuming an overlooked organic pathology, to understand the potential helpfulness of a psychotherapeutic treatment. The treatment plan was derived from an individual case formulation in order to consider the potential causal, developmental, and maintenance factors of the symptomatology.
