Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides a discussion of the importance and usefulness of adopting a case formulation approach to the selection, integration, and idiographic application of multiple cognitive-behavioral interventions in clinical practice. The authors describe how one such case formulation model, based on problem-solving principles, may be adopted in clinical practice. This decision-making model focuses on three primary principles. They include functional analysis; use of the empirical literature as a means of identifying meaningful clinical targets and potential interventions intended to address such problems; and consideration of the cognitive-behavioral clinician as a “problem solver” in the context of a therapeutic relationship.

Keywords: case formulation, functional analysis, problem solving, clinical decision making, idiographic treatment
