Contemporary psychotherapists have come to realize that, given the complexity of human behaviour, no one theory can ever suffice to explain all situations, disorders, and clients. Over the past three decades, the ideological cold war and "dogma eat dogma" ambience have abated as clinicians look across and beyond single-school approaches to see what can be learned - and how patients can benefit - from alternative orientations. This volume provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art description of therapeutic integration and its clincial practices by the leading proponents of the movement. After presenting the concepts, history, research, and belief structures of psychotherapy integration, the book considers two exemplars of theoretical integration, technical eclectism, and common factors. The authors review integrative therapies for specific disorders, including anxiety, depression, and borderline personality disorder, along with integrative treatment modalities, such as combining individual and family therapy and integrating pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. The book concludes with a section on training and a look at future directions. Replete with clinical vignettes, this unique handbook is invaluable to practitioners and researchers alike.show more
