"Aus dem Bauch heraus", oft heimlich, zumindest aber ohne das Gefühl, etwas intestine fundiertes zu tun: Die Kombination von psychotherapeutischen Methoden ist zwar gängig, fand aber bisher wenig Eingang in die psychotherapeutische Fachliteratur. Theoretisch und mit praktischen Anleitungen wird der "Einbau" einzelner Techniken anderer - vorwiegend verhaltenstherapeutischer - Methoden in ein therapeutisches Vorgehen beschrieben, das (und dies gilt für die Mehrzahl aller durchgeführten Psychotherapien) grundsätzlich der Tiefenpsychologie bzw. Psychoanalyse verpflichtet ist. In einem zweiten Teil werden die Erfahrungen dieses Vorgehens für die Besonderheiten auch von stationären Settings nutzbar gemacht.
