Author(s): Phil Lapworth and Charlotte Sills
Shows how to develop an individual approach to integrating theories and methods from various psychotherapies. Offering the strategies for integration rather than a therapeutic model, this book focuses on the integrative framework, and procedural strategies, extending discussion of the individual practitioner as integrator.
"Scholarly, dynamic, thought provoking. The multidimensional framework provided by Lapworth and Sills continue to engages successfully with the paradox of integrative work: a highly personal approach to therapy, resting on the integrity and judgement of the individual practitioner - and, at the same time, the way of working most likely to enable us to remain true to our values and ethics whilst managing the huge collective political and regulatory challenges our field faces in the years ahead." - Professor Andrew Samuels, University of Essex
