Title
Expanding Davanloo's Interpretive Triangles to Explicate the Client's Introjected Image of God
Abstract

One of the difficulties for a psychotherapist who desires to integrate Christian faith with psychological theory is making the transition from theoretical models to practical applications in the clinical setting. In this article I focus on interpretation techniques that will enable the client to more clearly understand his or her introjected image of God. I briefly summarize the literature on theoretical knowledge regarding the introjected image of God and then review Davanloo'€™s triangles for formulating interpretations of a client'€™s resistance and transference. Taking the literature on the introjected image of God and Davanloo'€™s interpretive triangles into consideration, a model is proposed that aids in incorporating interpretation of transference and resistance that a client has in relationship to God into the therapeutic work.
