The integrative approach described in this chapter represents the authors’ efforts to improve the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) via a systematic and theoretically cohesive assimilation of treatment procedures typically associated with other psychotherapy orientations. The primary emphasis is on an integrative therapy for generalized anxiety disorder which, based on treatment and psychopathology research, has added interpersonal- and emotional-focused interventions to CBT techniques. Other assimilative treatments aimed at increasing the efficacy of CBT for a number of clinical problems are also briefly described. The chapter further illustrates how the integration of other contributions may be implemented clinically.
