What is treatment selection?

A third method articulates treatment selection as a process that focuses on the identification and application of guiding principles, as opposed to broad theoretical models, that have been found to be related to the efficacy of each unique patient-therapist dyad.

What is systematic treatment selection?

Systematic Treatment Selection (STS, Beutler & Clarkin, 1990) is an empirically grounded decisional structure that uses existing research findings to define both state and trait-like patient indicators and contra indicators for utilizing different psychotherapeutic strategies, in the form of classes of interventions ( Beutler & Harwood, 2002 ).

What is Beutler & Clarkin's systematic treatment selection approach?

Beutler & Clarkin's Systematic Treatment Selection (1990) approach extended on these earlier approaches and drew from two contemporary models of integration: Differential Therapeutics ( Frances, Clarkin & Perry, 1984) and Systematic Eclectic Psychotherapy ( Beutler, 1983 ).

How can practitioners systematically use evidence in treatment selection?

Beutler, Moleiro & Talebi's (2002) review of how practitioners can systematically use evidence in treatment selection suggests that identifying the common and differentiating principles of change may be more productive than focusing on the relative value of different theoretical models.

Are patients' values relevant to the selection of treatment options?

This assumes, however, that the patient’s values will not be relevant to the selection of treatment options. Patients might assert that the failure to offer alternative treatment (or accept their request for it) was unreasonable and has caused them harm.
