  • Susan Llewelyn
  •  and Katie Aafjes-van Doorn


‘Frameworks used by clinical psychologists’ looks at the theoretical ideas and concepts that underpin the application of the competencies that clinical psychologists develop. All professionals rely on the use of frameworks to understand and help their clients, which provide structure and practical guidance as to what needs to be done next. Clinical psychologists are trained to apply a number of different psychological frameworks in their work. The clinical psychologist will use a particular framework depending on the service context, client preferences, research evidence, clinical guidelines, and their own judgement. The different frameworks discussed are behavioural, cognitive, psychodynamic, systemic, and integrative frameworks.
