Abstract

Within the larger mental health field, practicing clinicians are faced with an overwhelming number of different therapeutic models and intervention techniques (Norcross, 2005). These approaches often employ different psychological constructs to guide clinical treatment and define therapeutic change (Henriques, 2011; Levitt, Stanley, & Frankel, 2005; Magnavita, 2010; Wachtel, 1997). However, there is a lack of current assessment measures that are both broad and flexible enough to operationally define and measure constructs from all three of the different psychotherapeutic traditions (Levitt, Stanley, Fankel, & Raina, 2005; Steele, Steele, & Murphy, 2009). Five potential common assessment factors and associated scales on the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory are reviewed. A multi-method qualitative study is then presented which explores the integrative and therapeutic assessment implications of the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI).
