  Objectives: This was a single case study of a patient with unusual dissociation disorder with repetitive rotating behavior. The patient’s school performance had dropped signifycantly as a result of this illness and other treatment methods had proven relatively ineffective.

  Method: The subject was a 22 year old male college student who had been exhibiting rota- ting behavior along with day dreaming since the age of 10. Engaging in such behaviors had lowered his school performance. His cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) commenced with using methods of self-monitoring, muscle relaxation, thought distraction, thought stopping, and aversion, followed by self assertive training and other behavioral methods.

  Findings: Upon completion of treatment program and again at the 8-month follow up evalu- ation, the patient’s rotating behavior was extinct and his interpersonal behavior was signifi- cantly improved.

  Results: CBT method can be effective in symptom reduction and improvement of dissocia- tion disorder.
