Abstract

This article traces the pathways that led the author to his current integrative perspective on psychotherapy. Such perspective is described as an attempt to cope with repeated confrontations with the complexity of human functioning, as revealed by the seductiveness of major intellectual traditions, the untamable nature of clinical reality, and the challenge of unexpected empirical findings. The article also outlines the author's current and future integrative efforts, both in terms of training and research. Recommendations for the future of the integration movement, as well as the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integrations, are also suggested.
