Collaborative Case Conceptualization: Step-by-Step Model

When clients come to therapy with a single psychological difficulty, there is often a clear-cut, evidence-based treatment approach to follow. But what is a therapist to do when this is not the case? What treatment protocol(s) should be used?

Padesky presents a step-by-step model of collaborative case conceptualization to guide therapists’ treatment planning, derived from her book Collaborative Case Conceptualization (Kuyken, Padesky & Dudley, Guilford Press, 2009).

She demonstrates the three guiding principles of this new approach:
  1. Engage clients to collaboratively co-create conceptualization models that explain presenting issues. Padesky reviews why it is important for clients to help construct their conceptualizations and shows how this collaborative process resolves common treatment challenges.

  2. Conceptualization evolves over the course of therapy from descriptive to explanatory models. Learn simple interview methods that help clients co-develop models to understand presenting issues, their triggers, and what maintains them.

  3. Client strengths can easily be incorporated into conceptualizations. Doing so helps clients build resilience as they resolve their distress.

Aaron T. Beck calls this new approach “a gold standard for how to develop individualized case conceptualizations.”

Step-by-step model

I´m a trained and specialized psychologist and psychotherapist. I have found the step-by-step model of CCC very useful. It provided me with information about research, at a very useful level. The "present problem in a box - arrow in - arrow out" is a very useful model, which is presented in a way, that makes it immediately understandable. And I´m very thrilled about Padeskys focus on resilience and strengths in the clients, which is also presented in a very nice way in the program.

Very good Resource

I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Therapist in the UK, I would class myself as intermediate in terms of experience. I really enjoyed this seminar- I particularly liked the clever adaptation of the ABC framework into an easy-to-use, basic formulation model that can be used to highlight maintenance traps. I am also very fond of strengths-based approaches having been trained in Narrative Therapy, so I very much appreciated Padesky's idea of making 'ability spotting' part of the formulation!
