Description of The Psychotherapeutic Use of Benign Hallucinations with Persons with Charles Bonnet Syndrome

This article supports the view that the “pseudohallucinations” of Charles Bonnet syndrome are related to vision loss, not to psychosis. It proposes that the symbolic content of the images can be used to facilitate the psychosocial adaptation to the loss of vision, just as the interpretation of dreams does for sighted people in psychotherapeutic treatment, and presents several clinical vignettes to illustrate this point.
