This chapter considers training and supervision in psychotherapy integration. The authors begin by identifying an ideal educational sequence for psychotherapists and then discuss training in light of the four principal routes of integration—technical eclecticism, theoretical integration, common factors, and assimilative integration—whose training objectives and sequence differ somewhat. Next, the chapter addresses questions regarding the centrality of personal therapy and the necessity of research training in the preparation of integrative therapists. The authors review integrative supervision, specifically seven of its distinctive practices. The chapter concludes with a discussion of organizational strategies for promoting psychotherapy integration and some future directions for integrative training in mental health.
