Case formulation aims to identify a client’s presenting problems, the causes of those problems and what helps to maintain them in their current state, and what might help resolve these problems via a treatment plan. Case formulation is a skill that is increasingly being lost as therapists rely more on manuals and psychiatric diagnostic schemes. This book compares and criticizes case formulation in different schools of therapy and then guides clinicians how to implement a cross-theory case formulation that is more thorough and flexible than one tied to a specific school of therapy. The book identifies potential errors in clinical decision-making, and helps illustrate the case formulation process via a line-by-line commentary on interview transcripts.
