One approach to integration is to combine key features from two models, for example in cognitive analytic therapy (Ryle and Kerr, 2002). Another is to take ‘successful’ factors from various therapies, but this can lead to a muddled and tactical rather than strategic approach. An alternative is to focus on important ‘common factors’ (Frank, 1973). However, following the latter approach to integration to its limit would ultimately lead to one undifferentiated therapy. Integration can occur between different pragmatic treatment models or between the theories that underpin them.
