Case formulation is a key skill for mental health practitioners, and this book provides examples of ten case formulations representing the most common mental health problems in a variety of populations and contexts, offering commentary on contrasting formulations of the same case. Provides an overview of the general features of case formulation and how it can drive treatment Features clinical cases from a variety of populations, focusing on a range of different problems Covers all the major theoretical perspectives in clinical practice ? behavioural, cognitive behavioural, psychodynamic, medical , and eclectic Offers commentary on contrasting formulations of the same case for five different clinical problems
This book explores the purpose of clinical psychological and psychiatric diagnosis, and provides a persuasive case for moving away from the traditional practice of psychiatric classification. It discusses the validity and reliability of classification-based approaches to clinical diagnosis, and frames them in their broader historical and societal context. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is used across the world in research and a range of mental health settings; here, Stijn Vanheule argues that the diagnostic reliability of the DSM is overrated, built on a limited biomedical approach to mental disorders that neglects context, and ultimately breeds stigma. The book subsequently makes a passionate plea for a more detailed approach to the study of mental suffering by means of case formulation. Starting from literature on qualitative research the author makes clear how to guarantee the quality of clinical case formulations.
Comprehensive, scientifically based coverage on conductingbehavioral assessments, analyzing results, and forming clinicalrecommendations Behavioral Assessment and Case Formulation thoroughlyoutlines the underlying principles of the behavioral assessmentprocess. This book clearly explains how the principles and methodsof behavioral assessment central to the formulation of functionalanalysis are also helpful in guiding strategies for determininginterventions and measuring the processes and outcomes. This comprehensive resource offers up-to-date answers torelevant questions of the clinical assessment process,including: What is the best assessment strategy to use with a particularclient? Which assessment methods will best capture a client's uniquestrengths,limitations, behavior problems, and interventiongoals? How can data from multiple sources be integrated in order toyield a valid and clinically useful case formulation? Which procedures should be enacted in order to insure a positiveclinician-client relationship? How should intervention processes and outcomes be measured andmonitored? Filled with case studies, Behavioral Assessment and CaseFormulation provides guidelines for the application ofbehavioral assessment strategies and methods that can strengthenthe validity and utility of clinical judgments, as well as improvethe delivery of care.
There is a long history of behavioral approaches to psychopathology. Recent work, however, has focused instead on cognitive, psychodynamic and integrative approaches. Behavioral Case Formulation and Intervention redresses this imbalance by exploring radical behaviorism and its approach to the conceptualization, case formulation and treatment of psychopathology. Peter Sturmey describes the conceptual foundations of functional approaches to case formulation and intervention, explains the technology and application of behavioral assessment and hypothesis-driven intervention, and identifies outstanding and conceptual and practical problems within this framework.
Forensic Case Formulation is the first text that describes the principles and application of case formulation specifically to forensic clinical practice. Addresses risk assessment and its implications for case formulation and treatment Covers a range of serious forensic problems such as violence, sexual offending, personality disorder, and substance misuse Offers guidance in training clinicians on ways to create useful formulations
The goal of this book is to present the characteristics and underlying assumptions of the behavioral assessment paradigm and to show how they affect the strategies of behavioral assessment. Although all of the concepts and strategies discussed in this book are applicable in the research, this book focuses on the use of behavioral assessment to guide clinical judgments.
Case Studies in Clinical Psychological Science demonstrates in detail how the clinical science model can be applied to actual cases. This book's unique structure presents dialogues between leading clinical researchers regarding the treatment of a wide variety of psychological problems.
Mastering this Competency with Ease and Confidence
Author: Len Sperry
This is the type of book instructors, trainees, and clinicians need—a short text that demystifies the case conceptualization process and provides a streamlined method for learning and mastering this competency. It presents an integrative model for conceptualizing cases, dispels common myths about case conceptualization, and provides straightforward guidelines and strategies for mastering this essential competency. Writing clinically useful case conceptualizations is no longer optional today, and this training guide is the only resource you will need to increase your expertise and incorporate this competency in professional practice. Five detailed clinical case studies are referred to throughout the book, and exercises are presented at the end of the last five chapters to help readers in deriving Cognitive-Behavioral, Dynamic, Solution-Focused, Biopsychosocial, and Adlerian case conceptualizations from an integrative assessment. Drs. Len and Jonathan Sperry also address cultural sensitivity and offer guidelines for developing cultural conceptualizations and selecting culturally-sensitive treatments. All techniques are easy to understand and use, ensuring that readers will master this competency and feel confident applying it to difficult cases.
