From the psychoanalytic tradition we first discuss structural, genetic, and dynamic approaches to understanding individuals. We then describe the cognitive-behavioral approach. Interpersonal and relational elements are incorporated into the four main approaches and within the case material. Although these approaches have always been described separately, there is a great deal of overlap among them, so there will be some repetition in the descriptions. Structural Approach A structural case formulation attempts to capture the relatively fixed characteristics of an individual’s personality, which is understood within a functional context (in contrast with dynamic and genetic approaches, which are more content-based).
The CCRT method can be used differentially with patients according to their position on the continuum (see Chapter 4 for discussion of differential approaches to use of the CCRT). The following vignette illustrates a dynamic conflict as well as its genetic or historical basis. Dynamic Case Formulation Tim is a passive 48-year-old man whose father has become increasingly debilitated and demanding, a state made worse by early signs of dementia. His father often telephones with complaints and demands, even though Tim has been consistently helpful.
The genetic approach follows the development of the child from birth to late adolescence and/or early adulthood. An example of a persistent difficulty or traumatic situation is that of a young boy growing up with a violent alcoholic father who is demeaning and at times physically abusive. Persistent trauma such as that caused by unresponsiveness of a parent may be more subtle and difficult to evaluate. For instance, a narcissistic mother may use her daughter for her own selfenhancement. She may ignore her child’s real qualities, demanding behavior the child is either unable to deliver or can deliver only at considerable cost to herself.
