We will discuss briefly some methodological prerequisites for and constraints of the holistic approach (see Stake, 1995). Stake (1995) agrees that when studying a case, a specific issue or perspective is advantageous for gathering data. However, throughout a study, these issues may change such that the study may become “progressively focused” (p. In the process of data gathering, the case team should minimize intrusion, particularly avoiding formal tests and “assignments characteristic of survey and laboratory study” (p.
A practical neuropsychologist, for example, should primarily help the patient. However, systematic reflection on the various perspectives held by different interested parties is usually part of his or her casework. In order to find a suitable form of therapy or a place for housing the patient, the neuropsychologist has to consider the case from the perspective of the family, while taking into account the constraints of the intended hospital. Furthermore, the economic, societal perspective of health care regulations and institutions usually reveals limits and introduces different strategies that, although very robust, may be suboptimal.
The diversity of interests is most obvious in planning or environmental studies.

In order to attain an appropriate, acceptable solution, these plans and perspectives should be integrated.
