Stepped-Care Research in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy

  • Luciano L’Abate
Chapter

Abstract

The “successive sieves” approach for clinical psychology and psychotherapy interventions refers to a progression from least aggressive, less expensive, (and therefore least invasive) to most aggressive, invasive and, therefore, most expensive hurdles or sieves or stepped care (L’Abate, 1990, pp. 99–102). Since 1997 (L’Abate, 1997c, pp. 315–322) and more recently (L’Abate, 2013), I have advocated nonverbal techniques, that is exercises as an important aspect that should be emphasized in psychotherapy (L’Abate, 2008d). Nonetheless, even though “Evidence is mounting for the benefits of exercises, yet psychologists don’t often use exercises as part of their treatment arsenal (Weir, 2011).” Weir reviewed research on why exercise should be added as part of psychological interventions.
