CARO, Isabel. Psychotherapy Integration: A main Obstacle and Challenge. Ter Psicol [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.3, pp.177-180. ISSN 0718-4808.

Psychotherapy integration is a key trend in psychotherapy nowadays. This paper offers a critical perspective on a main obstacle and challenge for psychotherapy integration. Psychotherapy integration should be treated more as a process than as a product. For psychotherapy integration to contribute to the future of psychotherapy, it should not forget its original Exploratory spirit, avoiding and being cautious about Established approaches, and being, therefore, more a process than a product. This assumption should be related first with the core spirit of psychotherapy integration, an ongoing process of respect for different psychotherapeutic models, and an attitude of work in progress. It should, secondly, be related with the stance or perspective that ought to be taken toward the ongoing appearance of new integrative models.

Keywords : psychotherapy integration; integrative models; single-orientation; psychotherapy.
