All clinicians,regardless of experience or theoretical orientation, would benefitfrom reading it."

"This is an expanded version of what already was one of the mostencompassing approaches to psychotherapy integration. Ingram alsohas added much important material on cultural considerations. Themethod that is described allows the clinician to approach eachpatient with a carefully thought out treatment plan. By takingexistential and spiritual concerns into account, it goes wellbeyond the usual problem centered approaches. I am happy torecommend it to all practitioners."
—George Stricker, Professor of Psychology, ArgosyUniversity, Washington DC
"Two major splits dominate the field of psychotherapy today:alienation between researchers and practitioners, and thefragmentation of theoretical approaches into self-contained,frequently warring subgroups. In this contentious environment,Ingram's important book is a wonderful breath of fresh air, for shedevelops a dramatically successful conceptual and practical modelfor bridging these splits. Her approach masterfully does this firstby developing a generic case formulation paradigm that is boththeory and data friendly for researchers, and individual-casefriendly for practitioners. Second, in a far-ranging and seamlessintegration of the field, Ingram demonstrates how her caseformulation model can incorporate concepts and principles from awide variety of theoretical orientations, vividly showing how thedifferent approaches can provide complementary perspectives on thesame case. This complementarily in turn provides more options fortreatment planning and intervention so as to best shape the therapyto the specific clinical needs and contexts of the individualclient, while at the same time providing rich material tofacilitate the further development and refinement of thetheories."
