Customers who bought this item also bought
'Johnstone and Dallos' text, now in its second edition, has become a cornerstone of British clinical psychologist's thinking and training... This is an immensely useful book; practical, creative and still unique in its particular coverage of psychological models.'
- Huw Green, Clinical Psychology Forum
'It is fascinating to view the case studies through the lenses of each therapeutic approach, and the divergent ways of working that follow. Seeing how therapists from each approach would work with the two clients helped clarify the similarities and differences between models...The book is clearly structured, attractively set out and easy to read... I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone interested in the concept of formulation (which should be all of us) and in comparing and contrasting different therapeutic approaches. This also means that it is likely to be particularly helpful for integrative training courses.'
- Dr. Els van Ooijen, co-author of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy: a relational approach, Therapy Today
'Formulation in Psychology and Psychotherapy... which is now in its second edition, demonstrates the process of clinical formulation from a wide variety of clinical perspectives. Similar to the first edition, Johnstone and Dallos have created an edited text that brings together numerous contributors from the mental health professions to give us different theoretical perspectives on the process of clinical formulation... Books like this one reemphasize the necessity of grounding clinical practice in clear articulations of theory and rich descriptions of clinets' lives and experiences. In this sense, those drawn to narrative and more generally qualitative understandings of human experience will apprecaite the attention to clients' life stories and ways of making meaning of the struggles they face... The second edition of Formulation in Pscyhology and Psychotherapy is a thoughtfully constructed text that will be useful for graduate students, academics, and metnal health professionals who want clear, detailed, and theoretically diverse ways of understanding the process of clinical formulation.'
- Alexandra L. Adame, Seattle University, Journal of Constructivist Psychology
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
