An alternative explanation was proposed, namely the notion that stressful events in childhood and adolescence had triggered the development of Ralph’s mental health problems. Links were made between Ralph’s relationship with the voices and his relationship with his abuser. As a child, Ralph had felt powerless to act against the abuser; similarly, Ralph had perceived himself to be subordinate to the voices, in the same way as he had been to the abuser. However, therapy was enabling him to become more assertive with the voices and with signiﬁcant others; for example, Ralph was learning that he could make choices about his behaviour that might contradict the voices’ commands.
