This session describes an easy-to-master, 8-step strategy for developing a concise, accurate, and compelling case conceptualization. It begins by defining the Sperry and Sperry (2012) case conceptualization model. Then, it identifies the myths and misconceptions that discourage its use. Next, it incorporates the key elements of an integrative case conceptualization and illustrates this process with several case examples.
Participants will learn the definition and components of case conceptualization.
Participants will learn and begin to master a 8-step process for writing integrative case conceptualization statements that will include a clinical formulation, cultural formulation, and a treatment formulation.
