Praise for Clinical Case Formulations

Matching the Integrative Treatment Plan to the Client, Second Edition

"[Barbara Ingram has put] a career into the development of this book and it is wonderful! My students love that it was written with them in mind and they love the statements designed to reduce anxiety and normalize the learning process. This is an excellent book!"—Amy M. Rees-Turyn, PhD Associate Professor of Counseling Psychology, Lewis & Clark College

A step-by-step model for individualized case conceptualization

Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Clinical Case Formulations provides step-by-step tools and insightful guidance for moving from first contact with a client to the development of an effective, personalized treatment plan. Addressing the essential question every therapist faces—How do I create a treatment plan that is the best match for my client?—this unique resource provides a systematic and thoughtful method for integrating ideas, skills, and techniques from different theoretical approaches. It combines empirical research and clinical experience to create a case formulation that is tailor-made for the client.

This comprehensive resource offers two tools to guide case formulations: a problem-oriented framework, with a list of 28 standards for evaluating its application, and a set of 30 core clinical hypotheses derived from the knowledge bases of psychology, psychiatry, counseling, and social work professions.

The new edition includes:

  • Hypotheses on Emotional Focus, Trauma, and Metacognitive Perspective

  • More detailed attention given to empirically supported therapies such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Discussion on the importance of bringing cultural competence to case formulation tasks with every client

  • Skill-building activities throughout the text

Offering a thorough framework to help clients experience effective clinical service, practitioners will learn to conceptualize clients' needs in ways that lead to strong and individualized treatment plans, as well as advice and guidance on what to do when selected interventions fail to produce the expected benefits.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"[Barbara Ingram has put] a career into the development of this book and it is wonderful! My students love that it is written with them in mind and they love the statements designed to reduce anxiety and normalize the learning process. This is an excellent book!"
Amy M Reese-Turyn, PhD, Associate Professor of Counseling Psychology, Lewis & Clark College

"Dr. Ingram's book is a tremendous accomplishment and contribution. She provides a step-by-step, systematic guide to case formulation and treatment planning that is simultaneously creative, integrative, evidence-based, practical and wise. All clinicians, regardless of experience or theoretical orientation, would benefit from reading it."
Tracy D. Eells, MBA, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Louisville

"This is an expanded version of what already was one of the most encompassing approaches to psychotherapy integration. Ingram also has added much important material on cultural considerations. The method that is described allows the clinician to approach each patient with a carefully thought out treatment plan. By taking existential and spiritual concerns into account, it goes well beyond the usual problem centered approaches. I am happy to recommend it to all practitioners."
George Stricker, Professor of Psychology, Argosy University, Washington DC

"Two major splits dominate the field of psychotherapy today: alienation between researchers and practitioners, and the fragmentation 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 she develops a dramatically successful conceptual and practical model for bridging these splits. Her approach masterfully does this first by developing a generic case formulation paradigm that is both theory and data friendly for researchers, and individual-case friendly for practitioners. Second, in a far-ranging and seamless integration of the field, Ingram demonstrates how her case formulation model can incorporate concepts and principles from a wide variety of theoretical orientations, vividly showing how the different approaches can provide complementary perspectives on the same case. This complementarily in turn provides more options for treatment planning and intervention so as to best shape the therapy to the specific clinical needs and contexts of the individual client, while at the same time providing rich material to facilitate the further development and refinement of the theories."
Daniel B. Fishman, PhD, Professor, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University
