Fully revised and updated, the second edition of ClinicalCase Formulations provides step-by-step tools and insightfulguidance for moving from first contact with a client to thedevelopment of an effective, personalized treatment plan.Addressing the essential question every therapistfaces—How do I create a treatment plan that is the bestmatch for my client?—this unique resource provides asystematic and thoughtful method for integrating ideas, skills, andtechniques from different theoretical approaches. It combinesempirical research and clinical experience to create a caseformulation that is tailor-made for the client.

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

The new edition includes:

  • Hypotheses on Emotional Focus, Trauma, and MetacognitivePerspective

  • More detailed attention given to empirically supported therapiessuch as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance andCommitment Therapy (ACT)

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

  • Skill-building activities throughout the text

Offering a thorough framework to help clients experienceeffective clinical service, practitioners will learn toconceptualize clients' needs in ways that lead to strong andindividualized treatment plans, as well as advice and guidance onwhat to do when selected interventions fail to produce the expectedbenefits.
