Andre Marquis, Ph.D.Andre Marquis, Ph.D., Advisory Board

Andre Marquis, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of counseling and human development at the University of Rochester who is developing a unified, inclusive system of psychotherapy (Integral Psychotherapy) that capitalizes on the strengths and complementary nature of the major psychotherapeutic approaches.

Dr. Marquis’ teaching and research interests include counseling theories, psychotherapy integration and unification, life-span development, constructivist counseling, and the integral philosophy of Ken Wilber and its application as an integrative approach to psychotherapy, research, teaching and supervision. In addition to continuing to carry out empirical research on integral psychotherapy, he is interested in exploring research on life-span development and human change processes, including how spirituality affects health and other developmental issues. He has taught 20 different courses in psychology, counseling, and human development.

Dr. Marquis has recently published The Integral Intake: A Guide to Comprehensive Idiographic Assessment in Integral Psychotherapy (Routledge, 2008). This book describes integral theory, assessment via the integral intake and how they both pertain to the practice of integral psychotherapy. The Integral Intake is a thorough yet efficient assessment instrument developed by Dr. Marquis. The goal of this comprehensive intake form is to provide the practitioner with a wealth of background information about clients as early as possible in the course of therapy. The intake form not only gathers extensive information about each client, it also organizes the information – making it easier for therapists to quickly and effectively formulate unified courses of therapy for each unique client. In addition to assessment issues, the book provides an in-depth exposition of the relevance of integral theory as an integrative framework for psychotherapists and includes a 70-page chapter focusing on two case-studies that present actual clients’ completed Integral Intakes, how they were interpreted, the treatment plans constructed, and how the actual courses of therapy proceeded.

Dr. Marquis is also the co-author of Theoretical Models of Counseling and Psychotherapy (Brunner-Routledge, 2004; second edition expected 2009). Given that his primary work involves developing a unified approach to counseling and psychotherapy, it is meaningful to him to have published in journals that span a spectrum from Journal of Psychotherapy Integration, Constructivism in the Human Sciences, and Psychoanalytic Inquiry to Journal of Integral Theory and Practice, Journal of Humanistic Psychology, Counseling and Values, and Journal of Mental Health Counseling. He is currently co-editing the Handbook of Integral Psychotherapy.

Dr. Marquis has served several editorial roles, including Constructivism in the Human Sciences and Journal of Psychotherapy Integration. In addition to being a founding member of Integral Institute, he currently serves on the Advisory Board of Journal of Integral Theory and Practice.

Dr. Marquis is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York; he is also licensed in Texas. He currently leads a psychotherapy group and a small practice of individual clients.
