Case conceptualisation / Case formulation
Case formulation is the core component of CBT. It can help therapists and clients to understand the origin, current status, and maintenance of problem. Formulations can range from cross-sectional (here and now) to longitudinal (understanding origins), and from models for specific disorders to idiosyncratic for a particular client's situation.
"[Formulation is]The lynch pin that holds theory and practice together" (Butler, 1998)
