I want to begin by stating that I am excited to be considered an interdisciplinary professional. Along similar lines, The Journal of Clinical Case Studies represents this interdisciplinary nature by being a highly inclusive journal. The field of psychotherapy, for example, has a long history of theoreticians “clutching” to single theory approaches that have, unfortunately, oftentimes limited our understanding of human behavior (while setting out to expand our understanding of psychological processes). I am partial to [1] characterization of the “dogmas eat dogma” environment, whereby theoreticians were often blind to alternative ways of viewing behavior and the treatment process. Dating back to Freud, the tendency to focus on a limited themes and issues was often put forth. To cite some psychoanalytic examples, the “Oedipus complex”, “instinct theory”, “attachment theory” all of these core concepts have provided meaningful ways to conceptualize development and psychological processes; however, taken singularly, they are all just “pieces of the proverbial pie”.
