Adjusting Therapeutic Strategy
Adjusting therapeutic strategy

The general strategy that the therapist employs when working with a client is based on the client's presenting issues, their understanding as formulated in case conceptualisation, but also on the here-and-now presentation of the client. In the next two chapters we will look at the therapist's responsiveness (see Stiles et al., 1998) to the client's here-and-now presentation and to some aspects of the overall treatment strategy which depend on the central problems that bring the client to therapy. The chapters do not provide an exhaustive and detailed account of the situations and problems, but are rather attempting to sensitise the reader to the complexity of the therapeutic process.
