Description: Hubbard gives a case history of a woman suffering from postpartum psychosis.
Since estimation and auditor-sensitivity are subject to variety and error one cannot cleanly estimate the length of time required to clear anyone. Only approximations are possible and these are varied by possible environmental difficulties of the preclear during auditing: i.e., daily present time problems of crushing magnitude. We are not today in the area of thousands of hours, however. We are in the area of hundreds of hours in any case, sane or insane. I cite an example: a woman suffering from a postpartum psychosis1 was audited 600 hours on CCH 1, 2, 3, 4 2before she turned sane long enough for the auditor to snap off the case the valence3 of her dying brother, at which moment she turned stably sane.
