Integrative Therapy

 

The term “integrative” has a number of meanings. It refers to the process of integrating the personality: taking disowned, unaware, or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality, reducing the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit flexibility in problem solving and relating to people. It also refers to the integration of different therapeutic approaches together that may include psychodynamic, person-centred, behavioural, cognitive, family therapy, and gestalt therapy. Integrative psychotherapy synthesizes these theories together to form one comprehensive model for practice where each provides a partial explanation of behaviour and each is enhanced when selectively integrated with other aspects of the therapist’s approach.
