OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper is to assemble a basic, empirically derived set of psychosocial 'linchpin' factors for use in case formulation and treatment planning. METHOD: Observations are drawn from clinical work and the psychiatric literature. CONCLUSION: A generic set of psychosocial factors can be useful in providing reference points for case formulation and treatment planning. Such a categorization of factors might be useful for trainees and could help promote discourse toward a 'common language' in psychotherapeutic formulation.
