Abstract or description

Sport and exercise psychology practitioners tasked with service provision within any environment can decide which framework(s) they draw upon to inform their applied work. However, the similarities and differences between psychotherapeutic approaches are under represented in current literature. Therefore, this paper brings together practitioners from four dominant psychotherapeutic approaches to address one specific hypothetical case. Four different cognitive behavioral approaches are outlined, namely rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), cognitive therapy (CT), schema therapy (ST), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Each practitioner outlines their approach and proceeds to address the case by covering assessment, intervention and evaluation strategies that are specific to their approach. Similarities and differences across the approaches are discussed and implications for practice are put forth. Finally, two further practitioners introduce motivational interviewing (MI) as an additional framework to foster the working alliance.
