An examination of the issues and ideas surrounding integration and eclecticism in a therapeutic context, and a detailed account of a range of approaches in use. Contributors introduce and explain the origins of integrative and eclectic processes. Ten distinctive approaches are then introduced. For each approach: the central concepts, assumptions and therapeutic goals are described; an outline is provided of how psychological disturbance is acquired, perpetuated and resolved; how the relationship between theory and practice is examined; examples of typical sessions and case studies are provided; and the potential benefit to specific clients is considered. Further chapters explore the implications of using integrative and eclectic approaches to training, for supervision, for working in a time-limited context and from a multicultural perspective.
