More About This Textbook


In order to meet the diverse needs of clients, many therapists are moving toward a more integrated approach to psychotherapy that considers many different theoretical approaches. Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy explores how various theories may be successfully synthesized and describes this new approach by providing an overview of some of the ways in which psychotherapy has become more complex during the latter half of the twentieth century. The text explores how the various theories may be successfully synthesized. Brooks-Harris outlines seven theoretical models (cognitive, behavioral, experiential-humanistic, bio-psycho-social, psychodynamic-interpersonal, systemic-constructivist, and multicultural-feminist) for conceptualizing clients and guiding interventions. These models can be translated into practical skills and implemented with clients.The text's systematic, clearly written approach, combined with numerous figure illustrations, plentiful case studies and examples, highlighted key strategies throughout the chapters, and two summary appendixes, clarify the complex process of theoretical synthesis.
