This paper explores the use of a contextual behavioral model for treating a multi-problem client through the application of Kirk Strosahl's (2004) four-stage framework to an actual clinical case example. The paper begins with a review of the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of contextual behaviorism and then proceeds to a discussion of case formulation and treatment of "Jay," a multi-problem client in long-term individual therapy.
