In the opening plenary to the SEPI 2016 Meeting in Dublin, a panel of experts explore the theme "The Therapist in Integrative Therapy." John McLeod discusses the implications of the integrative therapist as a "maker;" Franz Caspar describes how therapists' responsiveness to their clients' needs invariably leads to integration and the need for models of this process; Beatriz Gomez presents a plea for the training and development of integrative therapists; and Bruce Wampold offers a unification and elaboration of these cogent presentations.

What Is Common in Common Factors: Implications for Psychotherapy Integration
In this panel, psychotherapy integration scholars debate a new conceptualization and parsing of the common factors introduced in a paper by Lars-Gunnar Lundh (2014; Psychology and Behavioral Sciences). Lars-Gunnar Lundh presents an overview and the implications of his theory that common factors can be viewed from either a "relational-procedural" or "methodological principles and skills" perspective. Bruce Wampold, Marvin Goldfried, and Paul Wachtel then discuss their contrasting viewpoints on Lundh's proposal and what it means for psychotherapy integration and research.
