Zalaquett, Carlos P.; Fuerth, Katherine M.; Stein, Carmen; Ivey, Allen E.; Ivey, Mary Bradford
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n3 p364-371 Sum 2008
The "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" (4th ed., text rev.; American Psychiatric Association, 2000) represents a medical model that can be reframed for more effective use in counseling. To achieve this goal, the authors describe how they can shift from client diagnosis to case formulation. In describing this shift, the authors offer an example of a theory-based etiology and relate case formulation to specific counseling interventions.
