Format: Paperback
This book introduces a new approach to integrative psychotherapy that has been developed by the author over the past five years. It is a clearly written, easily read and very practical work that gives clear illustrations from case examples of how this approach can be used. I would recommend this book to any experienced therapist who is interested in integrationist approaches, as well as those who are simply looking for an accessible introduction to the major theoretical models.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part focuses primarily upon the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of the model and the second describes the practical skills that flow from the theory. After briefly describing a range of common integrationist approaches, the five principles underlying multitheoretical psychotherapy are described: intentional integration, multidimensional integration, multitheoretical integration, strategy based integration and relational integration. The model takes the stance that individuals are complex and multidimensional, with the dimensions deeply interacting. It embraces a range of theoretical paradigms in attempting to meet the varied needs of individual clients and describes how the needs of the client determine the particular theory that interventions are drawn from.

HASH(0x8ef322d8) out of 5 stars Very skill-based and helpful 25 Aug. 2007
By Amelia H. Borofsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful skills-based text for intermediate level counselors. Most of us in the field of counseling and psychotherapy eventually end up working in an integrative manner, but this book helps us do that in an intentional and theoretically integrative way. The book focuses on breaking down each theoretical orientation into a set of interventions and identifies process markers that suggest when it makes sense to use particular interventions. I have always thought that feelings, thoughts, actions, family systems, and cultural systems are all part of the therapy rather than seperate approaches at war with one another. We need to intervene at all levels, especially those with which the client is most comfortable. This book helped me to become a better and more effective therapist.

HASH(0x8fcdb27c) out of 5 stars A brilliant conceptualizing tool! 4 Sept. 2007
By Richard I. Ries - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy, by Jeff E. Brooks-Harris, is written in an approachable, yet practical manner. The book demonstrates a means by which viewpoints through various psychotherapeutic lenses may be synergized for purposes of most satisfactorily meeting the needs of a client. This work is both humble and profouond.
HASH(0x8edb560c) out of 5 stars I HIGHLY recommend this book! 25 Jun. 2008
By N. Roblyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jeff Brooks-Harris has done a phenomenal job creating a concise book which contains a model for conducting integrative therapy that is both practical and relevant. Truly, this book with its solid research base offers something for everyone. Brooks-Harris' integrative approach has helped me as a student clarify and articulate my personal theoretical orientation. Even long after I have left school and entered into professional practice, I will refer to this book--over and over again. The author does a nice job of summarizing the major theoretical camps in psychotherapy, as well as the history behind their development. He then manages the daunting task of organizing numerous theories with ease, providing readers with a user-friendly framework for conducting therapy. What's more, he includes valuable suggestions for training others to use his model. Whether you are a student, professor, or licensed practitioner, I believe this book is for you.
HASH(0x8f2a7630) out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for! 30 Dec. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a graduate student and was introduced to Brooks-Harris' integrative multitheoretical approach to therapy and I had to have this book for my reference library. As I find myself leaning toward an eclectic approach to therapy, this book provides a blueprint for an organized approach to therapy. I haven't had a chance to read the entire book, as it arrived at semester's end, just as the Christmas holidays got underway. Can't wait to get to begin reading!
