Editorial Reviews


`Students will also find much useful material, including evaluation of client assessment approaches and analysis of ethical dilemmas. Throughout the book the emphasis is on clients' needs, which sends out a message for all of us, whatever theoretical model we remain faithful to. it also contains a framework for an Intergrative Training course, giving details of Student Assessment and Appendices with exercises for facilitation of groups' - Self & Society

`Integrative Therapy has arrived to provide the integrative therapist with a working framework that deftly delineates the scope and state of contemporary integration without skirting the major issues that affect it.... As a trainee integrative therapist myself, I applaud O'Brien and Houston's work. Most of the reading material we encounter as integrative trainees is a compilation of theoretical books in various disciplines. A personal and professional synthesis of so many ideas in a novice's mind can be unnerving. We learn to trust that through our experiential work that our way of being will surely make us good therapists, and that an integrative theoretical understanding is sure to come later. This, however, can be very intimidating to trainees. O'Brien and Houston recognise this when they state that trainings "...which emphasis the uniqueness of the individual and places the theraputic relationship at the centre...dependent on subjectivity and intution"' - The Psychotherapy Review

`This book is itself an integrative endeavour which lends authenticity to the work as a whole as it is written by two authors from different backgrounds.... The integrative framework is clearly laid out, and some very central questions are asked and explored' - The Psychotherapy Review
