Reviews - What do customers think about Integrative Psychotherapy: Toward a Comprehensive Christian Approach?

summer '10  May 11, 2010
have not perused yet working down list of other required reading for sum II as shown on syllabus
Counseling MA perspective  Apr 25, 2008
Drs. McMinn and Campbell have created a meaningful and comprehensive review on how to implement and recognize a theoretical and theological core in psychotherapy. The book includes useful charts, tables, vignettes, and personal disclosures that make the content all the more accessible and meaningful. This book is my favorite of the 45-50 books I have read in my graduate studies.
Integrative Psychotherapy: An undergraduate perspective.  Dec 12, 2007
This reviewer, a senior undergraduate student at a secular institution, found the multifarious incorporation of theological and theoretical dimensions by Integrative Psychotherapy to represent an earnest and intelligent discourse over a pragmatic approach to therapy. Expressly, IP is intended for Christian therapist/counselors whose therapeutic bent rests along the middle of the integrative continuum - between complete secularism and Biblical counseling - and, I feel, lays an optimistic and informed framework for theoretical integration. In fact, many among my cohort were inspired to begin reconciling their feelings of cognitive dissonance as regards theology and theory; this approach truly provided insight into a comprehensive psychotherapy. My recommendation is to peruse this book, not as a text deemed sacrosanct, but rather as an encouraging and practical compass to guide the future directions of integrative interventions.
IP or not IP: The need for relationships in therapy  Dec 3, 2007
I was expecting much from IP - McMinn & Campbell's attempt at providing a step toward a comprehensive Christian approach to psychotherapy. The basic tenets of IP are based on solid anthropological distinctions along functional, structural and relational dimensions. These dimensions form the major domains of intervention for IP. The authors critique a non-Christian CBT approach in being inadequate to address the functional and structural dimensions. They then proceed to develop a "relational" dimension that is the deepest, most significant dimension of healing. This is where the authors struggled the most. Their critique and extension of CBT is excellent. However, they turn to more psychodynamic models of relationships and therapeutic interventions. They fail to discern or develop a Christian model of relationships either based on the Bible or theology. As a marriage and family therapist in California, I found the relationship model offered to lack theological significance or theoretical impact. For example, Shults & Sandage (Transforming Spirituality) and Balswick & Balswick (A Model of Marriage) offer more compelling theorizing on relationships based on Bowen's Natural Systems Theory. Therefore, I would look elsewhere for an integrative model based on relationships.
Fresh new perspective  Sep 25, 2007
I was excited to read IP because it contained what I wanted as a therapist. In my opinion, CBT and relational theories are useful but incomplete. IP incorporates these models into a coherant therapy system founded on a holistic Christian view of the person while avoiding the syncretism that is all too prevalent in our community. IP leaves the mysteries of creation in place and invents an intuitive, pragmatic system to explain the rest. I am excited to see the effects of this book on the therapy community.
