Psychotherapy is a successful modality for those who engage in and complete a course of treatment. However, attrition rates and negative outcomes make up a significant and under discussed proportion of clinicians’ case load in routine practice. Innovative and novel methods to address these issues have been identified within the extant literature. However, their uptake can be impacted by issues such as utility and brevity. The present paper seeks to establish a framework for integrating Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) and the Cooper-Norcross Inventory of Preferences (C-NPI) in clinical practice. That is, using the C-NPI for initial preference accommodation and following this up on a session to session basis to monitor the process and outcome of therapy. An overview of both approaches is provided, and a rationale for their integration elucidated. The author terms this integration, Feedback Informed Preference Accommodation (FIPA). A Case Study is put forward to demonstrate this process in clinical practice.
