`Any counsellor or psychotherapist interested in understanding and reassuring their integrative framework would benefit from reading this book. It deals with some complex areas in a way that makes it an enjoyable and stimulating read for practitioners and trainees at any level' - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal

Supported by research findings, many practitioners see great advantage in integrating various approaches into their work rather than following one `pure' form of counselling or psychotherapy. Integration in Counselling & Psychotherapy has been written as a guide for trainees and professionals interested in the philosophy, process and practice of integration.

Part One provides an account of how integration has developed, outlines the generic elements of counselling and psychotherapy, and looks at how to integrate. In Part Two the authors set out their own multidimensional integrative framework, and demonstrate its use in clinical practice and in Part Three they describe a further five frameworks for readers to compare and contrast. The intention is not for practitioners to adhere to the frameworks presented here but to create and develop their own personal ways of integrating according to their theoretical background, level of experience and personal style.

From the Author:

Integration in Counselling & Psychotherapy.
Integration in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Developing a Personal Approach by Phil Lapworth, Charlotte Sills & Sue Fish

This book was written in response to our trainees and supervisees who expressed a need for literature which involved the discussion of integration and contained guidelines as to how to develop their own personal, theoretical and procedural approach to integration rather than follow a prescribed singular or integrative model. By focusing on the development of ‘frameworks’ rather than ‘models’, we hope we have gone some way to filling this gap in the integrative literature.

Increasing numbers of practitioners see therapeutic advantage in integrating various approaches into their work rather than following one ‘pure’ form of counselling and psychotherapy. In this book we introduce the reader to the philosophy, process and practice of integration, our aim being to demonstrate that by creating and developing overarching frameworks for integration, integration is theoretically and pragmatically feasible.

In Part I, we provide a brief history of integration and some recent developments, outline what we see as the generic elements of counselling and psychotherapy and discuss how to integrate. In Part II, the main core of the book, we present the development of a theory of human beings from which we develop our multidimensional integrative framework which is then shown in practice by a case example. In Part III, we describe five further frameworks from other integrative practitioners for readers to compare and contrast and from which they may select or adapt in order to evolve their own ideas. Our intention is not for practitioners to adhere to the frameworks given here but to create and develop their own personal frameworks for integration according to their theoretical backgrounds, stage of experience and personal styles. In Part IV, we conclude with a chapter on the integrative practitioner’s training and development.

We hope readers will find our book not only interesting but stimulating, challenging, practically useful, and encouraging of their own personal and professional integration. Feedback will be appreciatively received.
