This chapter discusses integrative and multimodal treatment programs for patients with acute psychiatric illness. Over the past decade there has been an increasingly popular shift away from the dogmatic adherence to one therapy orientation toward models of integration. In the late 1990s therapists and authors such as John Preston (2006) began describing ways to combine cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic, neurobehavioral, and other approaches to meet the demands of managed care and the needs of clients. Psychotherapy integration has been described as a “scientific paradigm,” a movement that is pervasive and likely to continue to gain momentum. Psychotherapy integration falls into three categories: assimilative integration, sequential and parallel integration, and eclecticism. Multimodal therapy, developed by Arnold Lazarus, is a psychotherapy approach which is considered a form of technical eclecticism because treatment components from various theoretical models, especially cognitive-behavioral, are prescribed as long as they are not conflicting.
