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 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.

Individual Case Formulation presents formulation as a process that can be taught systematically to trainee therapists. The book begins by discussing assorted theories of case formulation, and critiques their ability to be applied in real world situations. The individual case formulation approach is then defined and discussed as a way to integrate the best of what different theoretical orientations have to offer in conjunction with the expertise and clinical judgment of the therapist. The book proposes a systemic/functional framework that focuses on difficulties as defined by the client and emphasizes constructive solutions to problems rather than symptom reduction. Moving from theory to application, the book then guides therapists in how to conduct assessment interviews, how to reach a provisional formulation, how to test that formulation for accuracy and reformulate if necessary, how a therapist can make explicit what their clinical reasoning was in making the case formulation, and provides case examples and transcripts so readers will better grasp the concepts in action. Intended both for the starting or trainee therapist and the experienced clinician, Individual Case Formulation provides a practical guide for those looking to improve their case formulation skills. Reviews, critiques and compares multiple theories on formulation Identifies benefits of utilizing the individual case approach Guides trainee therapists how to conduct assessment interviews and reach a provisional formulation Presents a conceptual framework for developing and testing a formulation Helps trainees make explicit their clinical reasoning Field-tested for several decades Provides case examples with annotated transcripts to illustrate the process of formulation

Formulation remains one of the most important activities that those using psychological approaches undertake as part of their work. By drawing on a wide range of sources from psychology and the arts the authors find ways to honour the stories clients tell yet offer key psychological insights to facilitate change. They provide a clear guide to enable the reader to think about the purpose of their work with clients, the perspectives which inform it and the process used to ensure effective outcomes. Guest contributions are included from various fields of practice including: clinical, coaching, educational, forensic, occupational and from the arts The book will enable all practitioners (whatever the stage of their career) who need to work with client stories to find new ways to enhance their practice. `In a climate of demand for sound-bite explanations and quick-fix solutions, the authors refuse over-simplification and explore the challenging complexity of psychological formulation. They do so from a narrative perspective that recognizes that the formulations psychologists make in relation to the stories brought by their clients, while grounded in systematic theory and research, are, nevertheless, themselves stories. They have, therefore, elicited contributions from others, expert in the interpretation of stories and their characters, such as actors and dramatists, who bring differing perspectives to our understanding. I can personally attest to the value of these perspectives, as my own training in dramatherapy has greatly enriched my work with clients. It has deepened my appreciation of what feeling my way into another's world, so central in effective therapy, involves, and of the centrality of stories in our experience. I have found the chapters of this book stimulating and thought provoking.' Sheelagh Strawbridge, co-author of Exploring Self and Society and co-editor of the Handbook of Counselling Psychology
