about

The Levels of Analysis Paradigm is this author's response to the "conceptual crisis" in clinical psychology. With over 250 psychotherapies, clinical psychology is a patchquilt that critically needs a theoretical thread to bind the patches together. The author proposes a model that views behavior as functioning simultaneously on the individual and systemic levels and provides psychotherapy with a theoretical foundation. This approach focuses on human behavior as a holistic process and applies systems theory to individual functioning. The book gives a brief history of clinical psychology as a critique of alternate therapy approaches. The tripartite approach to psychotherapy is then presented together with practical applications and case studies. This monograph introduces practitioners and theorists to a new approach to clinical psychology . . . a model of individual and systemic therapy. Chapters cover: Conceptual Issues in Clinical Psychology; The Levels of Analysis Paradigm; The Tripartite Model of Individual and Systemic Therapy; Practical Applictions of the Tripartite Model; The Levels of Analysis Paradigm: Further Considerations.
