TREATING COMPLEX CASES: THE COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY APPROACH
Evidence-based approaches to assessment and formulation of complex cases
A wide range of problems not restricted to disorder categories, including anger, low self-esteem, abuse and shame
A concern with the realities of clinical practice which involves complex cases that do not fit neatly into simple case conceptualisations or diagnostic categories
Many of these chapters highlight the difficulties and complexities encountered by the clinician in conceptualising and treating these cases. However, they go beyond raising awareness of issues and provide, where appropriate, specific guidance on dealing with problems of engagement, socialisation, and implementation of treatment in complex cases.
