Title
Collaborative Efforts in Cognitive Therapy with Religious Clients
Abstract

Cognitive therapy requires an understanding of and tolerance for the religious views of clients. Collaborative techniques in cognitive therapy are described and ideological obstacles in doing cognitive therapy with religious clients are considered. It is suggested that confronting clients'€™ religious beliefs as pathological or absolutistic is clinically inappropriate. Beck'€™s and Meichenbaum'€™s collaborative techniques are endorsed as important clinical strategies in working with religious clients.
