We conclude this case conference by describing the similarities and differences between the respondents' comments. Regarding similarities, we highlight the focus on the contextual approaches to assessment and treatment of the referral concerns, the limited reliance on psychodiagnostic information for treatment development, the minimal attention paid to Mike's potential history of sexual abuse, and the scientist-practitioner nature of the recommendations. Differences noted are more limited and include the attention paid to the use of standardized assessment approaches, and the importance of social anxiety as a response pattern of concern.
