Great post, Edith. I’m not into turf wars either, but I think we’ll have to share this turf too. When I began my clinical psychology training in 2003, multi-theoretical formulation was in full swing. Indeed, one of the first models I was taught by Lynn McClelland, took a social inequality and social power perspective. Lynn published this model in Lucy Johnstone’s and Rudi Dallos’s book ‘Formulation in Psychology and Psychotherapy’ (2006). Perhaps I don’t see this as new because my training had a very heavy community psychology focus (community psychology being an offshoot of clinical psychology in the UK, I think?). It seems the more we look for difference, the more we find similarity?
