Book Description

20 Jun 2013 0415682312 978-0415682312 2

The first edition of Formulation in Psychology and Psychotherapy caught the wave of growing interest in formulation in a clinical context. This completely updated and revised edition summarises recent practice, research, developments and debates while retaining the features that made the first a leading text in the field. It contains new chapters on personal construct formulation, formulation in health settings, and the innovative practice of using formulation in teams.

The book sees formulation as a dynamic process which explores personal meaning collaboratively and reflectively, taking account of relational and social contexts. Two case studies, one adult and one child, illustrate the use of formulation from the perspectives of expert clinicians from six different theoretical positions. The book encourages the reader to take a constructively critical perspective on the many philosophical, professional and ethical debates raised by the process of formulating people’s problems. Among the issues explored are:

The social and political context of formulation

Formulation in relation to psychiatric diagnosis

The limitations of formulation

Controversies and debates about formulation

This readable and comprehensive guide to the field provides a clear, up to date and thought-provoking overview of formulation from a number of perspectives, essential for clinicians working in all areas of mental health and social care, psychology, therapy and counselling.

Product Description

Review

Praise for the first edition:

'Essential reading for students and trainees as well as qualified professionals. It demonstrates the richness of ideas which psychologists and therapists contribute to their understanding of clients' problems as well as confronting the complex issues arising from the idea of formulation itself.'

– Mary Boyle, Professor Emeritus of Clinical Psychology, University of East London

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for trainee psychologists 30 Sep 2013
By Red
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is continuously helpful to me in getting to grips with the main models of therapy and getting started on formulation. I'm always coming back to it, for writing academic assignments and in clinical practice, and just to refresh myself on the key points of different theories. I wish I'd got this book earlier. Covers a diverse range of perspectives including integrative formulation. Very accessibly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant introduction to formulation 27 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has been invaluable to me as a first-year trainee clinical psychologist. It gives a brilliant introduction to the concept of formulation for psychological difficulties. It has really helped me to better understand formulation from the perspective of different theoretical orientations and therapeutic modalities. Wouldn't be without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Educative and insightful 1 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fantastic read for psychology graduates or academics furthering their career in counselling or supportive roles. Offers a great deal of evidence and is thought provoking and useful when considering the negative and positive aspects of both medicalisation and formulation, but in particular moving towards trans diagnostic and integrated formulation and offering the best possible support possible.
